Bills-Redskins halftime score: 21-0 Washington lead as second half begins

New, comments

Football is a good sport, and fun, and many people like watching it. Those laws did not apply to the first half for the Buffalo Bills, who trail the Redskins 21-0 after two quarters.

That half of Buffalo Bills football was about as much fun as enduring a diarrhea fever dream.

Buffalo trails the Washington Redskins at halftime in the nation's capital by a score of 21-0. The much-maligned defense called by Rex Ryan has finally fallen flat on its face, surrendering 265 yards of offense in the first half while watching Kirk Cousins complete 14-of-17 passes for 182 yards with two touchdowns to Jordan Reed, plus a 13-yard rushing touchdown.

Tyrod Taylor has made a few nice plays with his legs (52 rushing yards on seven scrambles), but has just 27 passing yards in one of the ugliest halves of his season as a passer. The Bills themselves have just 93 yards of total offense. Gifted a fumbled punt that Corey Graham recovered, the Bills eventually had five tries to score from deep in Redskins territory, but LeSean McCoy was stuffed twice up the middle, and Taylor badly overthrew Sammy Watkins on a fourth-down fade to keep the Bills scoreless.

The Bills, as an organization, have been very bad for a very long time, and, truthfully, that was as bad a half of football as any Bills team has played in their 16-year playoff drought. If you have the option to do so, definitely find something else to do during the second half if you enjoy happiness.
