Second Half Rally Carries Bills Over Browns
After a shaky first half where not too much of anything went right, the Buffalo Bills gathered themselves together at half time and looked like a different team in the second half. Kyle Orton's 3-yard pass to Chris Hogan for a touchdown finally gave the Bills the lead for good on their way to a 26-10 win over the Cleveland Browns.
Give the Bills defense a lot of credit for this one. Jerry Hughes returned a fumble 18 yards for a touchdown, Da'Norris Searcy intercepted two Brian Hoyer passes, Nigel Bradham and Kyle Williams had quarterback sacks and the Bills held the Browns to just 124 yards in offense in the second half.
Hughes defensive touchdown came just 10 seconds after the touchdown catch by Hogan and was the play of the game.
Kyle Williams had one of the Bills sacks. He says they made adjustments at halftime and it paid off.
Dan Carpenter connected for four field goals, but had a fifth attempt blocked on the final play of the first half.
Still concerning is the Bills play selection in key situations. They were only 2 of 15 on third down conversions. Kyle Orton finished 17 of 31 for 190 yards and a touchdown, but he was picked off twice. They'll need better offensive production next week to keep up with the high powered Broncos next week in Denver.
