Buffalo Bills Offense Stumbles Again In Loss To Steelers

If the Bills hope to have a winning season they’ll need better production from their starting offense and especially from their quarterback.  E J Manuel directed the Bills on five drives in the first half of Saturday night’s preseason game against the Pittsburgh Steelers and they failed to score a touchdown.  That’s to go along with the five other drives in the preseason he’s been at quarterback and the Bills failed to find the end zone. 

Two of the drives against the Steelers were deep in Pittsburgh territory.  The Bills elected to go on fourth down and failed to convert both times handing the ball back to the Steelers.

Manuel’s statistics were respectable completing 17 of 27 for 148 yards, but he had a pass picked off and failed to lead the team into the end zone.

After falling behind 13-3, the Bills came back to tie the game and were in position to win it late, but some poor line play and sloppy ball handling by back-up quarterback Jeff Tuel resulted in a turnover giving the Steelers a chip shot field goal to win it 19-16.

First round draft choice receiver Sammy Watkins was injured early in the game and went to the locker room.  He suffered bruised ribs and the Bills say it’s not serious.

The Bills are home to host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers next Saturday.
