Bills Today: How Zay Jones made the internet buzz

1 - How Zay Jones made the internet buzz
Rookie receiver, Zay Jones, has gone viral with his Jedi-like move from Sunday's game. Though he scored a decisive touchdown in the game, his slick maneuver after a play along the sidelines seems to be overshadowing that.

Jones after hitting the turf following an incomplete pass against the Chiefs, pushed himself up off his stomach, initially with his hands, then seemingly floated back up to his feet backwards.

On Tuesday, Good Morning Football did a segment on Jones. They tried to make sense of his seemingly impossible move that he made look so nonchalant.

GMFB Co-host, Nate Burleson, tried to replicate Jones' sorcery during their segment. Jones went to Twitter and gave him the thumbs up, saying, "The force is with you!"

Jones' past three games have been the best of his rookie year. He's totaled 13 receptions, 154 yards, and two touchdowns in those games. The rookie is turning heads, with or without the ball.

2 - Week 12 power rankings round-up

The Bills skyrocketed in the Week 12 power rankings after their conference win over the Chiefs. After a tough three-game skid, Buffalo's back to trending in the right direction.

Chris Simms, of Bleacher Report, ranked the Bills 17th this week. It was a considerable jump from the 26th spot he had them in last week's rankings. Simms showed Buffalo some love after their sound performance.

When the Bills take care of the football, play sound defense and run the ball, they can be a challenge for even the best teams. Buffalo forced some turnovers against the Chiefs, and even though they didn't run well, the Bills stuck with the run and avoided becoming one-dimensional. This was the kind of game we saw from Buffalo early in the year. The Bills ran, played well on defense and got a few big plays from Tyrod Taylor. This was a key win for them and a game that gets the Bills back on track.

Elliot Harrison, of NFL.com, was a little more generous with his ranking. He had the Bills at 16th this week, compared to 20th from the following week.

What a statement win for the Bills… Buffalo's performance Sunday was a statement about this group's pride… Football fans around the country should start noticing Tre'Davious White, who has been an impact player in his first year and saved the day for the Bills on Sunday. Especially after the horrific personal-foul call extended the Chiefs' make-or-break drive.

Middle of the road isn't exactly where Buffalo wants to be in the power rankings. Considering they cracked the top-ten earlier in the season. A home win against the Patriots in Week 13 would increase their ranking, but more importantly their playoff chances.

3 - Clay appears back to full speed**There's plenty to be satisfied with after Buffalo's Week 12 win over the Kansas City Chiefs. Not only is the team 6-5 and in the playoff hunt, but it's looking like tight end Charles Clay is fully back from his knee injury.

On Sunday, Clay was quietly the Bills leading receiver. He hauled in four catches on four targets for 60 yards. His biggest play of the game went for 33 yards and in the process drew a critical face mask call. The penalty pushed Buffalo to Kansas City's 27-yard line and resulted in a field goal to pad the Bills lead. The Week 12 contest was Clay's most productive game since Oct. 1, prior to his injury.

"I think he did a good job with the matchup," offensive coordinator Rick Dennison said. "That's where we're trying to get him isolated in a couple of things with the route that he did."

Clay's injury occurred in Week Five against the Cincinnati Bengals. The following week was Buffalo's bye. He would go on to miss Weeks Seven, Eight, and Nine. The TE returned in Week 10, but it was evident his elusiveness wasn't quite there. He reeled in a season-low two receptions for 13 yards in his first game back. The following week (Week 11), it appeared he still wasn't 100-percent healthy. He tallied three receptions for 27 yards against the Chargers.

Despite missing three games and battling through injury, Clay still leads the team in receiving yards (358). He has also reeled in the second-most receptions (29) and has two touchdowns. Week 12 was a good indication that Buffalo has their top target back.

"He played fast. I think he's getting close but, you know, I'm no expert," Dennison said. "I just know he was open and he made some plays."
