Winning on the West Coast

The Bills continued their winning way this weekend, defeating the Los Angles Rams by a score of 30-19.

The Rams came into game 3-1, but in my opinion was misleading as they have one of the least efficient offenses in the NFL. With Case Keenum at QB the Bills couldn’t let a mediocre QB carve them up as Ryan Fitzpatrick did in week 2. The Bills defense was able to hold Todd Gurley in check as he has been for the early part of the season.

The Bills offense still haven’t blown you away since Anthony Lynn was promoted, but winning is the cure and that’s what the Bills are doing as the ride a 3 game win streak.

Lesean McCoy produced in a great way to the tune of 150 yards and had huge running lanes for the entire day. McCoy produced the way he was unable to last year as he battled injuries in his 1st season in Buffalo.

Tyrod Taylor numbers continue to be pedestrian as far as passing games as they team continue to feel the effects of not having Sammy Watkins. Taylor did find newcomer WR Justin Hunter for a 4 yard Touchdown to secure the Bills first Touchdown of the game. Hunter may be able to help fill the void in Watkins loss in the lineup. Taylor used his legs early in the game and picked up an impressive 22 yards on a 3rd & 19 play in the 1st Quarter.

With the Bills and Rams both rolling out lackluster offenses the two teams were deadlock 16-16 in the 3rd Quarter before the Rams made the mistake that I knew was coming.


Case Keenum threw an Interception that CB Nickell Robey-Coleman took the other way for 7 points to put the Bills up for good.

Watching previous Rams games I knew Keenum was good for a mistake that the Bills would be able to capitalize on, while it didn’t come as early as I expected the end result was expected.

The Bills sealed the win with a Tyrod Taylor Touchdown pass to Marquise Goodwin to put the game out of reach.

The Bills head back home now 3-2, with a matchup vs the San Francisco 49ers awaiting. The 49ers have struggled this season and sit 1-4, this will be a game that the Bills must win to be considered a player in the playoff race this season.
