Buffalo Bills Can’t Overcome Brutal First Half

The Buffalo Bills projected starting offense scored a pair of touchdowns during Saturday’s preseason game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but it wasn’t until they fell behind 24-0 when they finally managed to score.  And it wasn’t until their ninth drive of the game and 19th of the preseason when they finally put one in the end zone.

E J Manuel connected with Mike Williams on a 14-yard pass play and Fred Jackson ran 8 yards for a touchdown to account for the Bills scoring, but hardly enough to overcome a horrible first half.

The Bills turned the ball over three times in the opening 30 minutes on an interception and two lost fumbles.  After a fumble by C J Spiller in the first quarter, the Bucs drove 39 yards for a touchdown.  E J Manuel’s fumble in the second quarter was returned 17 yards for a touchdown.  After that Jackson gathered the team on the sidelines for a little pep talk.

E J Manuel finished 19 of 28 for 198 yards and the one touchdown.  He says this team has a lot of pride and they know they have a lot of work to do.
