Bills/Cards: Buffalo Nickels and Wide Right Awards

The Bills played considerably better this week against the Cardinals.  The cardinals came into the game with one of the worse run defenses in the league and it showed.  Both Spiller and Jackson were able to move the ball on the ground with minimal issues at times.  The offense was able to move the ball better and more consistently as well as Fitz controlling his own destiny until OT.  Fitz looked good up until missing 3 passes in a row in OT to force a punt situation.  This leads me up to my first Award.  I am giving out two Buffalo Nickels this week.  The first goes to the Offensive Line, who gave Fitzpatrick time to throw the ball and move within the pocket.  The Offensive line also created running lanes that could not be better for either Jackson or Spiller to run the ball.  The second Buffalo Nickel will go out to the Defensive 11.  There was a major improvement on their game play and the amount of pressure that they got on both Kolb and Skelton.  The safety was a great start to the game and the two interceptions by Byrd were closing statements that helped to solidify the game.  With the Defensive giving up 73 points in the past two second half games and only allowing 6 points in this second half, this is a great step in the right direction.  The two wide right awards that are going to be awarded go to Brad Smith and to Chan Gailey.  Mainly for the final interception that the Cards and Peterson had in the final minutes of the 4th quarter that allowed the game-tying field goal by the consistent leg of Feely.  My biggest issue in this case is the play call as well as the formation call.  The wildcat is a worthless formation and I see no need for it in the Bills playbook.  The amount of times that it actually works is worse than the times that it actually is effective and for that Gailey AND Smith are the recipients of the Wide Right Awards.
