The Buffalo Bills hit nearly all their marks and filled nearly every need they had going into the 2016 season especially with Reggie Ragland in the second round, which the Bills traded their original 2nd round pick and two fourth round picks to move up to get him. Ragland is undoubtedly one of the, if not the top linebacker prospect.
Their first round selection, Shaq Lawson, the 19th overall selection and Ragland give them two players that will make an immediate impact on the team.
“We had some holes. We had to make it over. If we didn’t, we’d be going into the season with nobody,” GM Doug Whaley said. “And we’re very excited with how we filled those holes.”

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 biggest factor in this seasons incarnation of the San Diego Chargers is the play of quarterback Phillip Rivers who made a star out of Antonio Gates last week and Eddie Royal this week.
“Philip just opens up everybody,” receiver Malcom Floyd said. “We’ve got all kind of weapons on the field. It’s pretty much just picking your poison.”
Just seven days post Rivers/Gates combo for 21 points, Royal finished the game against the Bills with four catches for 42 yards and two touchdowns.
“It’s key, no matter who’s in there,” Royal said. “It’s great when you’ve got a lot of guys that can make plays.” “We were tired of getting field goals,” Royal said about ending the drive with a TD. “It’s great to get points, but we wanted to score a touchdown.”
