The offensive line was the main reason LeSean McCoy was ineffective against the Panthers. He didn’t even have a chance thanks to the lack of push and running lanes. Not to mention Tyrod Taylor ranks 31st in time to throw this season. Taylor was sacked three times Week 2, as well.
The right side of the offensive line continues to be the problem. If they can’t contain Von Miller and Co. like they struggled against a much older Julius Peppers, it could be another long day for the offense.
This isn’t so much about the last play, but Zay Jones’ game as a whole.
Taylor could have thrown a slightly better ball, and it’s probably a play Jones would like to have back, too.
The problem with Jones’ Week 2 performance is the fact that he had six targets and only came up with two receptions. For a player the Buffalo Bills traded up to get, and is regarded so highly for his hands, that’s not very good.
Now, he’s only a rookie and it’s only his second game, so things will likely get better for Jones. However, this isn’t a good start.
After being inactive Week 1, Kaelin Clay got the nod in his return to Carolina.
However, it didn’t go as smoothly as he probably would have hoped.
Clay had two punt returns and gained just two yards. He also fumbled on a return too. Clay didn’t factor in the passing game either.
If Clay’s going to be active on game day moving forward, he’s going to have to be more reliable.
