Fitzpatrick went 21 of 27 for 193 yards passing with a 6-yard touchdown strike to David Nelson and an interception. The Bills eventually built a 28-7 lead on Brad Smith's 5-yard run early in the third quarter.
"We're putting ourselves in a tremendous opportunity," Jackson said. "We're happy where we're putting ourselves. But we still have a lot of work to do and a lot of teams left to play."
