Football is back!  That’s the good news for football fans in Western New York.  The bad news though is that the Bills came up short in the impressive column at Ralph Wilson Stadium tonight.

There’s a reason it’s called preseason.  Thankfully the regular season hasn’t started yet and this was a chance for The Bills to work out some kinks.  Luckily they have 3 more games left before the regular season starts too.

RG3 (Robert Griffin III) threw a strike to Pierre Garcon and it was the difference in the game as the Bills 2 field goals weren’t enough to bring The Bills ahead in a 7-6 loss to The Redskins.

In the quarterback race, starter Ryan Fitzpatrick looked a little off while only completing 6/14 for 61 yards.  Vince Young seemed to win the battle of the backups tonight while playing in the third quarterback spot and completing 5/12 passes for 50 yards with 37 rushing yards.  Tyler Thigpen went 3/8 with 38 yards and an interception.

The next game comes next friday night vs. Minnesota.
