The Bills won their first preseason game versus the Colts 24 – 16. Josh Allen showed promise and improvement in a poised performance. Indianapolis quarterback Andrew Luck sat out the contest. THE DEFENSE PLAYED WELL, HOLDING THE COLTS TO 85 YARDS IN THE FIRST HALF. KICKER STEPHEN HAUSCHKA HAD A ROUGH NIGHT, MISSING A 34 YARD FIELD GOAL. THE SQUAD NOW PREPARES FOR PRACTICES WITH THE PANTHERS NEXT WEEK IN CAROLINA. SATISFIED THAT THE BILLS ARE HITTING THEIR STRIDE, WE HAVE REASON FOR HOPE AS 1BUFFALO.
