Bills’ offense invisible in loss to Carolina


Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator Rick Dennison had a flawed plan going into Week 2. His offense didn’t show up Sunday afternoon and it showed on the scoreboard in the Bills’ loss, 9-3.

The game came down to the very last play with an overthrown pass from Tyrod Taylor to Zay Jones, which would have resulted in a game-winning touchdown.

Taylor struggled to throw the ball down field going 17 for 25 for 125 passing yards and was sacked three times. LeSean McCoy and the Bills’ backfield had a measly 69 rushing yards. The offense tallied an underwhelming 194 yards in the game.

Cam Newton went 20 for 32 for 228 yards and was sacked six times. His yardage alone surpassed Dennison’s ‘O.’

Jerry Hughes led the Bills in sacks with a total of two sacks for the day. Jordan Poyer, Lorenzo Alexander, Shaq Lawson and Eddie Yarbrough contributed with one sack a piece. Carolina had 77 rushing yards to add to its passing game.

The Panthers led the charge in time of possession with 38:53 compared to 21:07 for Buffalo.

Taylor continues to show that he doesn’t have the ability to come from behind or produce a game-winning drive, once again proving that he is not a franchise quarterback.

Next Week: The Bills will be back at home to take on the Denver Broncos next Sunday for 1 p.m. kickoff.
