In one of the most entertaining preseason openers that i have seen in recent Buffalo Bills history the Carolina Panthers edged by the Bills 28-23 Thursday night at New Era Field.
The offensive play calling was fabolous and in the first half as Nathan Peterman and A.J. McCarron combined to complete 16 of 20 passes for 235 yards with Peterman throwing a 28-yard TD pass to Kelvin Benjamin, and McCarron directing two drives that ended with a field goal and a touchdown run by Marcus Murphy. The Bills lead 17-7 at halftime
Rookie josh Allen started then second half finished 9/19 passing for 116 passing yards and 1 TD – including a bomb on his first play from scrimmage which traveled about fifty yards down the sideline but wound up incomplete. Allen showed what we all knew and where expecting the BIG GUN arm, and as he continues to grow as QB there are going to be some exciting days for bills fans.
