Bills avoid a mutiny by beating the Bucs

After getting off to a fast start, then butchering the second quarter with miscues and drops, the Bills took control of the game in the 4th quarter in beating the Bucs 33-20.

Big plays were the theme for the Bills today. Trent Edwards connected with Lee Evans on a rainbow 32-yard TD pass within the first 4 minutes of the game, and Donte Whitner actually made a play, (hmm maybe McGee’s extension motivated him) intercepting a Leftwich pass and returning it 76 yards for a 14-0 lead.

The Bills had a 20-7 lead late in the second quarter and were driving to make the lead even bigger, when Bills fans started thinking here we go again. Ronde Barber forced a Fred Jackson fumble and Sabby Piscitelli scooped it out of midair and returned it 72 yards to the 8. Roscoe Parish did his best Don Beebe and ran down Piscitelli (sounds like an italian cookie).

But even with the Parish save, Leftwich was able to find Cadillac Williams (whose on his 5th leg) for a touchdown, cutting the Bills lead to 6. After a pretty dull 3rd quarter, the Bills were finally able to ice the game when Edwards finally hooked up with T.O for a 43-yard touchdown to make it 30-14. The fans want nuts at the Ralph, chanting “T.O., T.O.” (more on him later).

Fred Jackson was the MVP of the game and will be starting a running back controversy with Marshawn Lynch. Jackson ran for 163 yards on 28 carries, giving him over 300 yards in total offense for the first 2 games of the season. Edwards was sharp connecting on 21-30 passes for 230 yards. Up next for the Bills are the Saints. Don’t be starting the Bills or Saints defense if you have them on your fantasy team.
