The Buffalo Bills ended another losing seasn on a high note, defeating the New York Jets 28-9 at Ralph Wilson Stadium.

Running back C.J. Spiller only managed 59 yards on the ground but caught a 66-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, helping the Bills finish the campaign 6-10, the same record as their divisional rivals.

It remains to be seen if either franchise opts to make coaching changes - Buffalo has now finished bottom in the AFC East for four straight campaigns and haven't made the play-offs in 13 years.

Chan Gailey at least saw his team snap a three-game losing run, though the Bills have gone 16-32 in his three seasons in charge.

Brad Smith scored on a four-yard run against his former employers while Tashard Choice also found the end zone on the ground, going in from 13 yards out for Buffalo.

Their first TD of the game came from their defense, Bryan Scott picking off a Mark Sanchez pass and returning it 20 yards.

It was the 18th interception of the season for Sanchez, who also lost a fumble. The 2009 first-round draft pick, making his first start in two weeks, finished 17 of 25 for 205 yards.

Nick Folk provided all of New York's points, kicking field goals from 23, 28 and 47 yards out, putting the visitors 9-7 ahead at one stage. He also had a fourth attempt blocked.
