The Bills went up north this week to face the Seahawks, and it appears like they took a vacation. Lead by an impressive performance from quarterback Russell Wilson the Seahawks stormed to a 50-17 victory over Buffalo.
Wilson passed for 205 yards and a touchdown while running for 93 yards and three touchdowns. He became the first Seahawk quarterback to ever run for three touchdowns in a single game.
Former Bill Marshawn Lynch had an excellent game on the ground as well, running for 103 yards and a touchdown. Sidney Rice led Seahawk receivers with four catches for 76 yards. Golden Tate had 64 yards on three receptions.
It was another rough week for Ryan Fitzpatrick, who threw two interceptions to go with his 217 yards and a touchdown. Backup Tyler Thigpen got his first game action of the season late in the contest.
C.J. Spiller and Stevie Johnson both had good games despite the rest of the team faltering. Spiller ran for 103 yards and a touchdown on 17 carries while Johnson 115 yards receiving with a touchdown. It was apparent that the Bills wanted to get T.J. Graham involved, but he had a few bad drops that killed any momentum. He finished the day with three catches for 32 yards. Scott Chandler had five catches, including a dandy he snagged after juggling the ball, for 58 yards.
The Bills started off the game with a sack from Kelvin Sheppard, but that was all that went good for the defense. They gave up 466 yards on the day and only recorded two sacks.
In all honesty this game was never close. Seattle dominated from the start and the Bills are now out of any playoff conversation officially. They are 5-9 and head to Miami next weekend.
