Buffalo Bills (1-1) at Indianapolis Colts (1-2)Final Score: BUF 20 IND 7
Bills/Colts: What to Watch For
SBN Colts coverage: Stampede Blue
Q4, 9:19: Buffalo's twentieth string offense capitalizes on a Keith Ellison interception with a Rian Lindell field goal. Bills 20, Colts 7.
Q3, 2:54: Leodis McKelvin just got absolutely torched, mistiming a jump and surrendering a 94-yard touchdown pass by Indy's Quinn Gray. Bills 17, Colts 7. Ugly play from our top draft pick.
Q2, 1:43: Joseph Addai blushes. Addai fumbles the ball on a routine switch of hands; the ball is scooped up by Terrence McGee and promptly returned 68 yards for a touchdown. Bills 17, Colts 0.
Q2, 5:00: Buffalo, behind outstanding play-calling by Turk Schonert, orchestrates an 18-play beauty of a drive capped off by a one-yard touchdown dive by Xavier Omon. 10-0 Bills. The team did, however, lose Langston Walker (shoulder) on the drive, and J.P. Losman may have dinged his hand at some point as well.
Q1, 2:31: The Bills take a 3-0 lead on their second drive of the game on some nice work - albeit work that came up short - by J.P. Losman through the air. Buffalo's offense has Indy's defense off-balance, but a Losman-to-Evans attempt on third down fails and leads to a 36-yarder by Rian Lindell.
Welcome, Rumblers, to tonight's open game thread for our third pre-season matchup of the year, in which our beloved Buffalo Bills take on the Indianapolis Colts at the newly constructed Lucas Oil Stadium. The Bills will be without starting quarterback Trent Edwards (thigh) for this game, meaning backup J.P. Losman will get the start. Wide receivers James Hardy and Roscoe Parrish, tight end Derek Schouman and offensive tackle Matt Murphy will also miss the game; more inactives will be listed here as they come.
