Buffalo Bills News
The Buffalo Bills were business as usual this week as they prepared to battle the Denver Broncos in a Week 2 preseason match up. Highmark Stadium was filled with a lot of high notes on “Kids Day” as the Buffalo Bills would dismantle the Denver Broncos 42-15. Josh Allen’s preseason debut was on display for “One Bills Drive” as he went 3-3 for 45 yards which included a 28 yard strike to Gabe Davis for a TD. End of business day for Josh Allen.
I want to thank Case Keenum for reading my letter from last week’s article as he turned in a very astounding performance going 16-18 for 192 yards and a TD pass to OJ Howard. Matt Barkley would finish off the day completing 7 of 8 passes for 65 yards. The running game was able to produce 208 yards of offense.
The 5 headed monster of Blackshear, Johnson, Cook, Moss, and Singletary produced 4 touchdowns as a unit and ran very well behind the offensive line led by Dion Dawkins, Mitch Morse, Rodger Stafford, Spencer Brown, and Ryan Bates. Khalil Shakir had another really good performance as he recorded 59 yards on three catches. Shakir is making a very good case that he should be WR4 as the regular season start is closing in.
The offense would score six touchdowns in its first six possessions. Sounds like a great day at the office. The defense was very sticky for most of this game. The Broncos would only accumulate 32 yards of rushing. Andre Smith Jr would lead the team with seven tackles. The 7th round pick Baylon Spector also had seven tackles in this game and was all over the field once again making plays.
As the preseason continues, I will be looking forward to seeing what players will separate themselves as shoe in roster guys. The players to watch on defense as far as I’m concerned would be guys like Christian Benford, Terrel Bernard, and Mike Love.
Next week, the Bills will visit the Carolina Panthers in a Week 3 preseason battle.
Will we see more of the Bills starters?
What positional battles will be figured out?
What cuts will be made?
The Buffalo Bisons played against “The Valley” this past week and got a little closer to the mountain top as the Bisons are now in third place in the East division. The Herd went 3-3 against the Lehigh Valley IronPigs.
The Bisons scored 34 runs and gave up 36 runs including a 15-4 loss on August 17th. The Bisons three games later would get some revenge with a 10-1 win on Sabres meet the Bisons Day on August 20th. The Bisons will be playing the Columbus Clippers this week as they look to climb up the mountain in the East division.
Will the Bisons continue to improve their record? Who will stand out this week against the Columbus Clippers?
