Dale’s Briefs – Monday November 28th
A good try, but still a loss. The Bills played a much better game against the Jets than the last time they met, but when the game was on the line in the final minute the Bills just didn't have what it takes to win a ball game. Receiver Stevie Johnson dropped a sure touchdown catch that would have given the Bills the win during the final drive. He also drew a selfish celebration penalty late in the first half after scoring a touchdown. The Bills 28-24 loss is their fourth in a row falling to 5 & 6 for the season.
