Bills 14, Browns 7 At Halftime: Buffalo's Fast Start Tapers Off

The Buffalo Bills opened up a quick 14-0 lead on the Cleveland Browns, but a C.J. Spiller injury and a Browns touchdown sapped some first-half momentum.

The Buffalo Bills started off strong forcing two three and outs by the Cleveland Browns. In the meantime, the Bills scored two touchdowns on their first two series but have slowed down since, leading the Browns 14-7 at the half.

The big news for the Bills is the injury to RB C.J. Spiller. Spiller was landed on hard following a catch and run in the first corner and left hevily favoring his left shoulder. He will not return and it's unclear how long the dynamic back will be out. For the moment, he will be replaced by journeyman veteran Tashard Choice, with Johnny White - a former 2011 fifth-round pick that was re-signed off of the street just two weeks ago - mixed in.

The Bills get the ball back to start the second half, but the offense has been sputtering since Spiller was hurt. We'll see if they can muster enough production in the second half to hold off the Browns. Go Bills!
