Bills/Lions Recap

The Bill’s closed their pre-season out last night at Ford Field with a game against the Detroit Lions.  Despite a quick defensive and offensive start they fell short, losing 28-23 due to a late surge by the Lions.

The Bills quickly jumped into the lead with a 40 yard interception return by Drayton Florence.  That was followed up by a field goal drive by Trent Edwards and a handful of other starters put them up 10-0.  That drive included a 50 yard reception to Lee Evans proving that Edwards might just have the long ball in him after all.  Edwards finished out the day, only playing in the opening drive, going four for four with 66 yards.

Brohm followed Edwards by completing 2 more field goal drives and looking rather impressive.  At this point I believe we’re looking at Brohm as the number 2 QB as he seems to be improving quickly despite stats that aren’t up to par with Fitzpatrick.  I think it’s safe to say Edwards has the starting job locked up and despite injury or a drastic change will see a full season of games this year

CJ Spiller didn’t dress for the game as Lynch made his return from an ankle injury.  It was still disappointing not to see him play though.  Come to think of it, it’s been a while since this team has had a player you looked forward to watching.  After an impressive pre-season lets hope he continues the skills he’s shown so far well into the regular season.

The Bills finish the pre-season 2-2 with plenty of things to look forward to…not that improvement isn’t needed in several areas though.  Explosive offensive plays is something we’ve seen plenty of this pre-season but has been drastically absent from previous seasons.  However an unimpressive special teams and a defense struggling to pick up on the 3-4 system makes it hard to say where this team will be come the end of the season.  Nine more days and perhaps we’ll have a better idea.
