New, comments

There are two more quarters left in the preseason for the 2015 Buffalo Bills. Talk about them here!

Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports

At halftime in their preseason finale, the Buffalo Bills are tied with the Detroit Lions at Ford Field, 10-10. Ron Brooks returned a deflected interception for the opening score of the game, and after the Lions rattled off 10 straight points, Dan Carpenter kicked a field goal to tie the game up with less than a minute remaining in the half.

These were my notes from the first half of the game:

  • Andre Davis offside on opening kickoff
  • Davis makes great catch on tipped pass
  • Muffed snap on 4th & 2 - Kraig Urbik or Matt Simms?
  • A.J. Tarpley blows up a pitch on 3rd & short
  • Mario Butler illegally covers long snapper, giving DET first down
  • NZI on Stefan Charles; - 3rd & 10 becomes 3rd & 5
  • Great hit by Merrill Noel to cause Brooks pick-six
  • Ugly DPI on Brooks on next series
  • Great open-field tackle by Bacarri Rambo
  • Bad deep ball tracking by Davis with space (ball under thrown)
  • Simms takes a huge hit, converts 3rd & 8 to Marcus Thigpen
  • Iffy holding call on Nick O'Leary
  • Second muffed snap (lost) - Urbik snapped without the ball
  • Alex Carrington, Stefan Charles, Andre Fluellen having their way with DET backup OL
  • Butler burned badly on 65-yard slant TD
  • Darryl Johnson beaten badly to give up a sack
  • Nice catch in traffic by Dezmin Lewis to convert third down
  • Quentin Groves dinged after making massive KR hit
  • Tarpley blows up a screen

The last half of 2015 Bills preseason football? It's happening now. We're almost done, folks. Go Bills.
