On his first game as a Jet….
It was fun. To be a part of a win like this is exciting. Opening for us, it’s a big game. I’m proud of my teammates for their effort and the fans coming out and supporting us. It was a fun day.

On if he was surprised that the offense performed so well after their preseason struggles…
The whole time we believed in ourselves and the offense and Coach (Tony) Sparano and everything. The whole time we were game-planning and preparing. I feel like we were confident coming in. Guys just stepped up and executed as a unit. I’m proud of everyone.

On what it’s like for the offense when the defensive causes turnovers…

It’s exciting. I think momentum is huge in this game. When you’re able to get the momentum and capitalize on big plays, which we did, and continue to get big plays on defense, you kind of get that “big mo” going and it makes things a little bit easier.

On the wildcat…
After a little bit, we didn’t show too much. We were able to get in there and have some efficient plays. Obviously, we would have liked to break one open (for a touchdown), but I think it’ll continue to develop.

On if the numerous substitutions caught the Bills off guard…

It’s hard to say. I think we were showing them a lot of different looks, a lot of different personnel. I think that’s definitely tough to deal with. Are you going to play press (coverage)? Are you going to back off? Early on they were backing off and Mark was making great completions underneath. We got a few good plays over the top.

On if it was calm on the Jets sidelines when the team made substitutions…
It was pretty calm. I think there was good communication. I think that was the key, it’s something we’ve been practicing a lot. I think that was the start of why we were able to execute.
