Buffalo Bills Rally in the Second Half To Defeat the Oakland Raiders

The Buffalo Bills improved to 2 & 0 with an incredible comeback win over the Oakland Raiders.  Down 21 to 3 at the half, the Bills scored touchdowns on all five of their five second half possessions to rally past the Raiders 38 to 35.  The winning touchdown came on Ryan Fitzpatrick’s 6-yard pass to wide-open tight end David Nelson with 18 seconds left.  Then the Bills sealed it with an interception in the end zone on a Hail Mary pass on the final play of the game.  The play was reviewed, but it showed DaNorris Searcy did have the ball all the way and the ruling on the field held up.

The Bills struggled in the first half.  An interception set up the Raiders with a short field for their second touchdown and even a field goal try by the Bills on the final play of the first half was blocked.  They made some changes and looked like a different team after halftime.

Nelson finished with 10 receptions for 83 yards including the game winner.  How did he get so wide open?
