Bills Win Overtime “Thriller”

Not too many people will say they love going to preseason games.  You might see the starters play for a few series then they’re off the field for the rest of the game.  Preseason games are all about auditioning players for roster spots and once in a while you just might see a competitive game.  Saturday night at Ralph Wilson Stadium just might fit into that category.

The Bills starting offense and defense played well in the first half building a 17-0 lead on the Jacksonville Jaguars.  Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 11 of 12 passes for 165 yards and two touchdowns.  Marcus Easley caught five balls for 51 yards and a score.

Then it was the Jaguars turn.  The Jags scored 32 straight points to go ahead 32 to 17 setting the stage for a Bills comeback. 

Bruce Hall scored on a 5-yard run, Paul Hubbard scored on a four-yard pass from Tyler Thigpen on a 4th down play in the final minute, then Thigpen and Hubbard connected again for a two-point conversion to send the game to overtime. 

Rian Lindell finally ended it with a 40-yard field goal for a 35-32 win.

Coach Chan Gailey says preseason, regular season, it’s always feels good to win
