When the starters were in the game on both sides, the Bills took a 3-0 lead, with Dan Carpenter drilling a 30-yard field goal following a Kyle Williams sack and strip of Eli Manning. (Keith Rivers recovered the fumble for the Bills.) Buffalo's new-look defense recorded two stops on two possessions, but things did not go as well offensively, with EJ Manuel completing just 2-of-7 passes for 19 yards in his 2014 debut.
After the Bills' first-team defense left the game, the Giants immediately embarked on a bruising, 12-play, 80-yard drive culminating in a three-yard touchdown run by rookie running back Andre Williams. Buffalo's second-team offense quickly responded, with Jeff Tuel engineering a 15-play, 80-yard drive, hitting Robert Woods for a three-yard score on fourth down.
Buffalo also had another scoring opportunity late in the first half after special teams ace Marcus Easley blocked a punt, but a Tuel pass on a T.J. Graham slant was tipped into the air and picked off by Giants safety Cooper Taylor.
This is your open thread for the second half of the Hall of Fame Game. Enjoy it!
