The Buffalo Bills defeat the Cleveland Browns on last ditch effort, scores game winning touchdown under 2-minutes left in the game.
The Browns and Bills played in a less than thrilling game. The Browns were off to a very rocky start on both offense and defense. Though the Browns only gave up three points in the first half, they allowed the Bills to convert on four, third down conversions on the first two drives.
The Bills had a 9:36 first drive of the game, that ended in zero points, due to a missed 46-yard field goal by Dan Carpenter.
Last week against the Washington Football Team, quarterback Josh McCown went 5-for-5 and had a touchdown in his only series. Thursday night against the Bills, it would be a different story. McCown played the all of the first half, his first two drives ended on interceptions. One of the interceptions came off the fingertips of tight end Gary Barnidge, who would be checked for a concussion. Barnidge would later be cleared to return.
Running back Terrance West got the first four carries for the Browns, he finished the first half with 9 carries for 28 yards. Isaiah Crowell had 4 carries for 18 yards in the first half.
The only points scored by the Browns in the first half came from the leg of Travis Coons, who connected on a 41-yard field goal with under a minute left to go in the half.
Johnny Manziel started the second half for the Browns. The third quarter Manziel wasn’t spectacular, throwing 3-of-4 for 17 yards in the first two drives.
