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

The huge 33-17 win over the Miami Dolphins last week was a huge boost for the franchise and the team as Rex Ryan makes his return to MetLife Stadium.
The Bills worked over the Dolphins last week on a day that saw the return of Sammy Watkins (8 catches 168 yards and a TD) and LeSean McCoy (16 attempts, 112 yards and a TD).
This week, the Bills will have to overcome an improved Jets defense led by Todd Bowles.
“They’ve added from a personnel standpoint to already a talented team,” Ryan said Tuesday. “But when you’ve added Darrelle Revis — you get Revis back, you get Cromartie back, you get that secondary back and add some new pieces there — that was a huge help. That’s really what was missing I think on defense,” Ryan said in reference to his last season with the Jets.

The Buffalo Bills held home court against the Minnesota Vikings, escaping with a one point 16-17 victory. In a last minute 15-play 80 yard drive that was conducted by QB Kyle Orton. Orton connected with Sammy Watkins in the end zone with one second left.
Now the Bills must prepare for the New York Jets, who at 1-4 are looking for any spark for their team. Their one standout element, their defensive line, may well put Orton in jeopardy with Orton taking six sacks against the Vikings. The Jets are currently ranked seventh in the NFL in sacks with 20.
