Great opening drive stalled against Colts’ defensive starters

The Buffalo Bills held most of their starters on offense out for this game against the Indianapolis Colts. However, the Colts took a different approach and most of the starters were on the field to start the game.

This makes the Bills’ offense opening drive even more promising as it was led mostly by Zack Moss and Khalil Shakir, as both had at least one play that went 25 or more yards. It started with Shakir who caught a 25-yard pass on the second play of the game.

Then later in the drive, Moss took a handoff that looked to be stopped at the line of scrimmage but he was able to reverse field and showed great burst as he ran for 27 yards.

The Bills would end up going for it on fourth down at about the 5-yard line and failed to convert so didn’t come away with any points. However, that was a great way for Ken Dorsey and this offense to start.
