Bills Drive, Notch Field Goal To Tie 49ers At 3

The Buffalo Bills have tied the San Francisco 49ers at 3-3 early in the second quarter thanks to a methodical 75-yard drive that kicker Rian Lindell capped off with a 31-yard field goal. The drive took 12 plays and consumed just over five minutes of game clock.

Stevie Johnson (14-yard reception), C.J. Spiller (12-yard run) and Scott Chandler (20-yard reception) had the big plays on the drive, with rookie wide receiver T.J. Graham chipping in a nine-yard reception to convert on a third down. Chandler's lengthy reception came on a seam route; he got 20 yards down the field and camped right in front of former Bills safety Donte Whitner, on whom Chandler has a nine-inch height advantage.

To this point in the game, Ryan Fitzpatrick has been very efficient, completing 8-of-12 passes for 72 yards through about 20 minutes of game time. He did, however, throw a pass slightly behind Donald Jones on the final play of the drive; a better throw may have led to a first down or perhaps even a score.
