Denver Broncos rookie left tackle Garett Bolles is expected to start against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, one week after he was carted off the field with a lower left leg injury, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter. "Then they were telling me they didn't really know what my diagnosis was. but then I know I was going to be able to come back to it". On Sunday they found the endzone once in each half.
Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian looked much like a young quarterback after halftime against the Bills, throwing two interceptions and failing to find the endzone. Barrett is right up there with the best of the best in the National Football League this season in terms of quarterback pressures, and I think he's going to terrorize Dawkins and Tyrod Taylor all game.
The penalty actually played a huge role in the game. Instead, the drive continued, and Buffalo got a field goal out of it.
Bills stun Broncos thanks to 2nd half surge
That move cost the Broncos 15 yards and, eventually, three points. Buffalo's defense however, forced the Broncos to settle for a field goal. The Bills never trailed again after that.
The Bills ran almost eight minutes off the clock before settling for another field goal, then the defense held off down the stretch, giving an aroused home crowd reason to exult in the 90-degree heat.
Now 2-1, the Bills must keep their early-season success in perspective. I guess they'll worry about the draft later.
