Panthers Beat Bills, Barely.

Against the Carolina Panthers the Bills linebacker, London Fletcher, got 17 tackles but we did not pull out the win. Panther quarterback Jake Delhomme passed for a lot of yards and our QB J.P. Losman passed for a career-high 197 yards, so we can’t say all the big plays were on the other side of the ball. They just had the better defense and kept us out of the end zone. It was not a high-scoring game on either side of the ball yet I believe it is a game we should have won. The statistics don’t lie and they really make us look like a winning team. This was a home game loss but how can we turn this season into something when we can’t win on the road?

Losman Gets Hit, a Lot.

Number two in the AFC East with a 4-6 record is where our Buffalo Bills are at right now. Our loss to the San Diego Chargers was not really as bad as the score makes it look. The Chargers are a good team, they have a 6-4 record and this was their third consecutive win. It would have been nice if our defense had stopped them from scoring so many points, but we haven’t been winning on the road all season. There are a lot of things to work on and our running game is a big one. Willis McGahee hasn’t been producing like the NFL’s best running back, a moniker he gave himself. The Chargers got six sacks on J.P. Losman for the game.

We need to put this hard loss behind us and focus on the rest of the season with the Carolina Panthers coming up. That is going to be one important home game.
