Buffalo Bills Reason To Celebrate: Scott Chandler Making Plays

New, comments

For miserable Buffalo Bills fans looking for a shred of positivity following a horrible 52-28 loss to New England, they need look no further than tight end Scott Chandler, who has emerged as a solid starting tight end.

It's that time of the week when we raise a toast to some aspect of the Buffalo Bills. That's obviously not an easy thing to do in the hours and days following an embarrassing 52-28 home loss, but hey, nothing about what happened yesterday was the fault of tight end Scott Chandler, was it?

Chandler was instrumental in the Bills overcoming a sluggish offensive start to take a 14-7 lead at halftime, catching both touchdown passes in the second quarter to secure the lead. On the day, he caught four passes for 62 yards and those two scores, and when Buffalo's offense was at its hottest on Sunday, Chandler was leading the charge in the receiving game.

On the season now, Chandler has not had huge reception (12) or yardage (175) totals, but he's again proving to be a major red zone threat, with four touchdowns (including at least one in three separate games) during the team's 2-2 start. He now has 10 touchdowns in 20 games as the Bills' starting tight end.

Look, we know that when you were doing your "celebrating" last night - or when you do more of it tonight and in the coming days - the real object of your toasts was our well-known nemesis, Misery. If you can spare a sip or two for a positive vibe, Chandler would be the place to begin that process. He's developed into an important passing game target for Buffalo, and a pretty dang good tight end.
