Buffalo Bills Open With Impressive Preseason Win
With a new general manager, new coach, new coordinators and new quarterbacks, the Bills opened the preseason with their most impressive summertime showing in years, and the 44 points they scored is the most in a preseason game in their history.
The Bills got off to a good start with their new coaching staff and a pair of rookie quarterbacks looking impressive in a 44-20 win over the Indianapolis Colts.
Both EJ Manuel and Jeff Tuel played well splitting duties in the game. Manuel was 16 of 21 with a touchdown pass to Dorin Dickinson at the end of a 2-minute drive. Then Tuel in the second half was 19 of 23 with touchdown passes Da’Rick Rogers and Brandon Kaufman.
CJ Spiller averaged 9 yards of four carries.
The Bills got some outstanding play from their special teams units, especially on kick returns. Marquis Goodwin had two long kickoff returns, one of them for 107 yards and a touchdown.
Defensively, the Bills picked off a pair of passes with Jumal Rolle returning one of them 17 yards for a touchdown.
