Beyond the Playbook: Taylor, Gillislee, Watkins stand out in Bills win over Cowboys
The Buffalo Bills improved to 7-8 with 16-6 win over Dallas Cowboys at Ralph Wilson Stadium Sunday.
"This was an ugly game all the way around from the play on the field to the wet weather conditions," notes football analyst Matt Sabuda. "Both the Bills and the Cowboys managed to move the ball at times but just couldn't manage to score points which is attributable to a missed field goal, extra point, interceptions and fumbles for both teams. In the end though, the Bills had more talent, despite fielding a number of back ups, and were able to come away with the win."
"There were some impressive standouts," says Sabuda. "I'll start with Tyrod Taylor. While, he wasn't asked to do a lot with 18 pass attempts only, he did rush 14 times for an additional 67 yards which did make him a standout. In fact, he even broke Doug Flutie's record yesterday to become the Bills all time single season leader for rushing yards by a quarterback."
"Where did running back Mike Gillislee come from? Through four games, this guy just has 13 carries, for a ridiculous 239 yards rushing and three touchdowns. I'll be surprised if he didn't write his ticket for serous consideration to be in the Bills running back rotation next year."
Sabuda adds Sammy Watkins is close to getting 1,000 yards on the season, noting he earn 84 yards yesterday and has just 89 yards left to go.
The Bills finish the season next week against the New York Jets at Ralph Wilson Stadium.
