Bills Lose A Tough One To The Giants
The Bills will have two weeks to think about their 27-24 loss to the Giants in the Meadowlands. Two interceptions thrown by Ryan Fitzpatrick were costly – the biggest coming late in the second half with the game tied at 24-all when he underthrew Stevie Johnson at the Giants four-yard line. The Giants took over and drove for the winning field goal to hand the Bills their second loss of the season.
Bills running back Fred Jackson ran for 121 yards on 16 carries – the bulk of that coming on an 80-yard touchdown run. It was the longest touchdown run for the Bills in 21 years and the fifth straight game Jackson scored a touchdown.
Naaman Roosevelt caught just one ball, but it was a big one. He took a short pass 60 yards for a touchdown.
Stevie Johnson had the Bills other touchdown on a 9-yard catch in the end zone to tie the game late in the fourth quarter.
Fitzpatrick finished 21 of 30 for 244 yards with two touchdowns and two picks.
Ahmad Bradshaw scored all three of the Giants touchdowns on one-yard runs.
The Bills drop to 4 & 2 entering the bye week. They play the Washington Redskins in Toronto on Sunday, October 30th.
