It seems the fog has lifted for the Bills and we’ve got ourselves a pretty interesting game now.
Fred Jackson’s big time 43-yard touchdown run gave the Bills their first touchdown of the game and the Bills trailed 21-10. Buffalo’s scoring drive spanned 80 yards in only three plays and lasted 1:34. On Oakland’s next possession, the Raiders were on the move converting three third downs but at the Buffalo 42 yard line, a fumble by Darren McFadden was recovered by Bills linebacker Danny Batten and the Bills took full advantage. C.J. Spiller had runs of 12 and 18 yards, and Brad Smith picked up an 11-yard gain out of the wildcat formation. At the Oakland 7-yard line, the Bills found paydirt again as Fitzpatrick hooked up with his favorite target, Steve Johnson for a seven-yard touchdown pass to make it a one-possession game.
Buffalo trails 21-17 with 3:41 left to go in the third frame.
