The Bills lost to the Vikings 17 – 10 in last evening’s preseason opener. Quarterback Tyrod Taylor started hot, throwing 3 completions to Sammy Watkins, then faltered. Overall he was 5 of 8 for 46 yards. Backup TJ Yates had a long night, going 6 of 11 for 48 yards. Nathan Peterman had an impressive 13 play, 79 yard fourth quarter drive that resulted in the Bills only touchdown. The rookie completed 13 of 25 passes for 112 yards. IT WAS A LACKLUSTER PERFORMANCE IN SEAN McDERMOTT’S DEBUT AS HEAD COACH. FORTUNATELY THE TEAM EMERGED WITHOUT INJURIES TO KEY PLAYERS. THE ACTION RETURNS TO TRAINING CAMP AND PREPARATION FOR NEXT WEEK’S MATCHUP WITH PHILADELPHIA. STINGING FROM THE DISAPPOINTING LOSS, WE REGROUP AS 1BUFFALO.
