What else can really be said? In a shocking display of offensive competence, the Bills scored touchdowns on all five of their second-half possessions to roar back from a big halftime deficit and defeat the Raiders 38-35.
The whole offense gets a gold star for this one in the second half. After a pretty dreadful first half, Ryan Fitzpatrick fired three touchdowns, including the game winner to David Nelson with under 20 seconds to play. The Raiders had a chance to win it at the end with a Hail Mary, but rookie Da’Norris Searcy came down with an interception to seal the win.
Fred Jackson continued his blazing start to the season with a huge performance, racking up 117 yards and two touchdowns on just 15 carries.
The defense was pretty bad, but you know what? I can’t be negative today. The Bills are 2-0 with the Pats coming to town next week. Let’s enjoy this tonight and get ready for a big game next Sunday.
Your 2011 Bills are relevant. And that’s pretty exciting.
