He had stayed on the field in apparent pain prior to being taken off the field by the team's medical staff. Taylor got flushed out of the pocket as the Bengals rushed four men and dropped seven and as he ran out of time running to his right he hit running back LeSean McCoy right at the sticks for the first down working against back-up safety Clayton Fedjelem. The receivers as a group caught three passes for 34 yards and one touchdown that belonged to Brandon Tate. If Clay is sidelined for a long period of time, the Bills will likely turn to Nick O'Leary and Logan Thomas to help fill the void. Buffalo's depleted offense couldn't take advantage of Cincinnati's three turnovers. All the plays are in the highlights above and were fantastic from the Bills defense.
"I'm proud of them", said Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis. Speaking of Hyde and Poyer, they both picked off Andy Dalton on tipped passes.
Injuries for everyone: The Bills lost cornerback Leonard Johnson (hamstring) and tight end Charles Clay (knee). Poyer had a big return on the play wiped out by an illegal block by Adolphus Washington. It was the first game at Paul Brown Stadium since President Donald Trump tweeted that players should be fired if they protest during the anthem, prompting a pushback from players and some team owners. Green also had a hand in the Bengals' three turnovers that kept the Bills in it.
The Bills running game continues to be stuck in neutral.
Bills: Following their bye, the Bills host Tampa Bay and Oakland in the next two weeks. His 47-yard reception on the final play of the third quarter set up the Bengals' second touchdown to put Cincinnati up 17-13 - the Bengals never relinquished the lead. He finished with 63 yards on 19 carries a week after mustering 73 yards on 20 totes.
The good news is that McDermott has fixed the defense and has it playing at a high level. They need it badly. But whether they can continue to win more than they lose and finally snap this playoff drought will depend on their offense, which has been just good enough in three games, and not almost good enough in two others. Buffalo's schedule also includes a tough road game in Kansas City and two December meetings with the Patriots.
