Yes, that game got the Buffalo Bills got their first win of 2010 against the Detroit Lions, but the lasting impression from that game was how well right guard Eric Wood fared against star rookie defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh.
Suh finished that game with three tackles - tied with games against the Jets, Packers and Buccaneers for his statical worst last season - and the Bills saw fit to leave him one-on-one with linemen more often than not, with Wood leading the charge.
I've re-watched that game thoroughly, and I believe that impression is accurate, if flawed. Wood was generally very good in that game. Suh got the best of Wood a couple of times, but on the vast majority of reps, Wood was the victor in this individual battle. This game was the best display yet of Wood's tenacity as a blocker - the guy's a fighter. From way back in November, see Ron's O-Line breakdown for more on that matchup.
Ironically, BuffaloBills.com will be featuring a video on this battle tomorrow (Thursday) if you're interested in a more intricate breakdown of Wood versus Suh. I can field questions in the comments section if there are any, but in short, that general impression is accurate.
