Buffalo Bills Fall To Cincinnati In Overtime [AUDIO]

Before this week, there were a lot of Buffalo Bills fans who never heard of Thad Lewis. But if he was an unknown before, he isn’t anymore. He went from the practice squad to the starting lineup in the Bills game against the Cincinnati Bengals and almost delivered a win against one of the better teams in the NFL.

Lewis ran for a touchdown and passed for two more. His 40-yard pass to Marquis Goodwin with just over a minute left in regulation sent the game to overtime, but the Bengals’ Mike Nugent kicked a 40-yard field goal to win it 27-24.

Lewis also connected on a 22-yard scoring pass to tight end Scott Chandler and finished 19 of 32 for 216 yards passing and added another 17 yards rushing. Lewis says it all comes down to winning and losing.

It’s amazing that the Bills were able to make a game of it. Whatever flaws the Bills defense had, the Bengals found them and capitalized with some big plays, especially on screen passes that went for big gains – one for 42 yards, another for 54 yards.

Coach Doug Marrone says they have some work to do, but things are coming together.

Punter Brian Moorman returned to the Bills lineup after being re-signed earlier in the week and had a big day, averaging just under 49 yards on five punts, including one that rolled out of bounds inside the one yard line. Moorman said he was happy to back in Buffalo.
