on Sunday Stephen Hauschka Jersey
, sleep-walking through an abysmal afternoon against the Indianapolis Colts. Buffalo lost 37-5, and truthfully, the game wasn’t even that close.It all started off well enough, with Buffalo forcing the Colts to punt on their first two drives. After that, however, the Colts scored on their next four drives. Andrew Luck threw 3 touchdown passes in the first half, hitting Eric Swoope, Marlon Mack, and T.Y. Hilton for scores. Adam Vinatieri added a field goal in what was a 24-0 halftime lead for the Colts.Buffalo had two turnovers in the first half. Charles Clay fumbled away a promising drive in the red zone, losing the ball when the game was still close at 6-0. Derek Anderson threw an interception in the red zone to close out Buffalo’s first half drives. The second half wasn’t much better for the Bills Womens Jordan Poyer Jersey
, as Anderson added three more turnovers (a lost fumble and and two interceptions). Colts running back Marlon Mack had a huge day, rushing for 126 yards and a fourth-quarter touchdown that was essentially uncontested. On the day, Anderson was 20-of-31 for 175 yards and 3 interceptions. Chris Ivory was effective, carrying the ball 16 times for 81 yards. He had much more work than expected as a result of LeSean McCoy’s head injury, sustained on his second play of the game. McCoy carried twice for one yard before his injury.Andrew Luck was efficient and nearly flawless on the day. He completed 17-of-23 passes for 156 yards and 4 touchdowns. The Colts only allowed a Stephen Hauschka field goal on the day, with a botched snap that went out of the end zone for a safety accounting for the only other points Buffalo scored. The loss leaves the Bills and Colts tied in the conference at 2-5. The Buffalo Bills have a ton of cap space to spend in 2019, but that doesn’t mean NFL free agents are going to flock to sign in Western New York. In fact, there are some reasons why Buffalo might not be a great place to land.Offensive offenseThe Bills have a quarterback who isn’t very accurate, a porous offensive line, and weapons that have underwhelmed. And that doesn’t even mention the sheer number of holes http://www.thebillsloc...tic-russell-bodine-jersey
, with possibly six or seven new starters on the offense next season. The offense is a work in progress and that’s not going to appeal to every free agent.Playoff DroughtIt’s still a thing. All of these players grew up, played college, and started their NFL career while the Bills were the NFL’s biggest losers (or at least longest losers). They still have a reputation as being a moribund franchise, even if they snapped the playoff drought in 2017.StereotypesThe weather in Buffalo gets a bad rap. Bills owner Kim Pegula said this month that Buffalo summers are so beautiful, and she’s right. Not to mention spring and fall, but for an NFL player who grew up in the South, played college football in the SEC, and has been in another NFL city for four or five years, a lot of what they hear about Buffalo is the massive snowfall totals. It’s hard to overcome a pervasive stereotype like that. There’s also nothing to do in Buffalo, if you ask Willis McGahee Phillip Gaines Jersey
, and the hotels suck according to Tom Brady.Cap spaceNot Buffalo’s cap space, but other teams’. The Indianapolis Colts with their steady head coach, franchise quarterback, and domed games have the most cap space in the league and they made the playoffs. The Houston Texans have an exciting quarterback and play in Houston, plus have star J.J. Watt and DeAndre Hopkins to build around and $60 million in cap space. The Seattle Seahawks have $55 million, the San Francisco 49ers have $49 million, and the Dallas Cowboys are right behind them. Buffalo has the cap space, but do they have the cachet?
