Leodis McKelvin must have felt like he was in an episode of The Twilight Zone as he once again found himself repeating a huge mistake he last made against the New England Patriots the last time they played MNF in 2008. Back then, McKelvin fumbled a kick return, this time it was a punt return that cost three points in a 20-13 loss.
“It’s football,” McKelvin said. “Things happen. S— happens. I guess it just happened to me at this place. Luck of the draw.”
At the end of this game, the Bills were driving and running a two minute drill and quarterback Tyrod Taylor (20-36 for 233) hit WR Sammy Watkins who rolled out of bounds with two seconds left on the clock – enough time for an unlikely Hail Mary pass completion. The referee, however, allowed the clock to continue to run citing that Watkins “gave himself up.”
“What we had as far as the last play with Buffalo’s reception was that the receiver gave himself up voluntarily in the field of play. When that occurs and we deem that the runner, which he would have been after he maintained possession after his reception, he was now a runner, had given himself up in the field of play,” Referee Gene Steratore told a pool reporter
