Hey there. The Bills played a Thursday Night Football game in Cleveland. Here’s how it went.
I am genuinely excited about this.
14:14 — Cleveland goes 3-and-out (0-0 tie)
Good work, team.
13:28 — T.J. Graham throws pass to end zone. Pass interference called (0-0 tie)
This is just going swimmingly.
13:21 — Fred Jackson runs for 1-yard touchdown (7-0 Bills)
Lots of “Fred Jackson 1-yard runs” in this game, but a few were really important.
13:13 — Brian Hoyer completes two straight passes to Davone Bess (7-0 Bills)
I thought they were joking when they said he was playing well.
11:33 — Hoyer runs for 11-yard gain. Tackled by Kiko Alonso. (7-0 Bills)
Hoyer is hurt. Brandon Weeden in.
We shouldn’t laugh. Something awful might happen to us in return or something.
10:12 — Browns drive stalls. Browns punter punts (7-0 Bills)
And it was looking so promising for them, too.
9:36 — E.J. Manuel throws 20-yard pass to Scott Chandler (7-0 Bills)
That’s what we want to see, boys.
7:49 — Manuel throws 13-yard pass to Stevie Johnson (7-0 Bills)
6:45 — Manuel throws 12-yard pass to Graham (7-0 Bills)
Really feeling it now.
5:55 — Bills kicker kicks 52-yard field goal (10-0 Bills)
Only field goal of the night. And now we get to the Brandon Weeden sack montage.
4:12 — Weeden sacked by Mario Williams. Browns punt. (10-0 Bills)
Talk about GIF synergy…
0:53 — Aaron Williams takes dumb unnecesary roughness penalty after an incomplete pass on 3rd and 4 (10-0 Bills)
His weekly dumb penalty needs a sponsorship deal. I’m thinking Mighty Taco.
0:53 — Weeden sacked by Kyle Williams (10-0 Bills)
Weeden has the mobility of a maypole. They should have had 19 sacks.
14:28 — Browns kick 30-yard field goal (10-3 Bills)
11:11 — Bills punter punts (10-3 Bills)
10:20 — Weeden throws 19-yard pass to Jordan Cameron (10-3 Bills)
I know, girls. I’m concerned, too.
8:38 — Weeden throws 16-yard pass to Josh Gordon (10-3 Bills)
Stop being decent.
8:13 — Willis McGahee runs for 11-yard gain (10-3 Bills)
He can still do that?!?
5:15 — Da’Norris Searcy takes hilariously awful illegal contact penalty in end zone (10-3 Bills)
I’m not even sure what happened there. Dumb.
3:52 — McGahee runs for 1-yard touchdown (10-10 tie)
And we were making such beautiful music.
2:41 — Bills go 3-and-out. Bills punter punts (10-10 tie)
Travis Benjamin returns punt for 79-yard touchdown (17-10 Browns)
Great work, everyone.
1:59 — Manuel throws 9-yard pass to Jackson (17-10 Bills)
Fred Jackson takes gets taunting penalty (17-10 Bills)
What she said. I’m done with this half.
Not a good feeling about this one.
14:30 — Manuel throws 24-yard pass to Robert Woods (17-10 Browns)
This team really has made some excellent halftime adjustments this season.
14:01 — Spiller runs for 54-yard touchdown (17-17 tie)
Okay. Game on.
12:32 — Weeden sacked by Mario Williams (17-17 tie)
Maypole. Tetherball. Same difference.
9:10 — Manuel sacked by Buster Skrine (17-17 tie)
The hell is a Buster Skrine?
8:24 — Manuel runs for 14-yard gain (17-17 tie)
Manuel injures knee on the play
Overall, we handled that pretty well.
8:02 — Tashard Choice runs two consecutive times, because God is dead and no one loves you (17-17 tie)
I don’t want to play anymore.
6:41 — Jackson runs for 1-yard touchdown (23-17 Bills)
Thank you for bringing me off the ledge, Fred.
Joe Haden blocks PAT.
Joe Haden was offside. Bills kicker kicks PAT (24-17 Bills)
6:29 — Weeden throws 47-yard pass to Greg Little (24-17 Bills)
It’s tough to play football when you’re terrible.
5:39 — Weeden throws 37-yard touchdown pass to Gordon (24-24 tie)
Try to keep up, dingus.
Manuel does not return. Jeff Tuel stays in at quarterback.
Not you, Al.
4:57 — Bills go 3-and-out. Bills punter punts (24-24 tie)
4:10 — Weeden sacked by Jerry Hugues. Fumbles, but Browns recover. Browns punt (24-24 tie)
At least the defense is back to doing stuff.
2:46 — Tuel sacked. Bills punter punts poorly (24-24 tie)
I hope you have some saving put together, Bills Punter.
12:34 — Alonso makes two straight tackles for loss. Browns kick 24-yard field goal (27-24 Browns)
Just a scratch.
11:17 — Tuels go 3-and-out. Bills punter punts poorly (27-24 Browns)
Not very effective.
9:38 — Weeden sacked by Hughes and Westerman. Browns punt (27-24 Browns)
7:13 — Bills offense is on the field for 1:32 seconds of game clock (27-24 Browns)
5:08 — Weeden throws 18-yard pass to Gordon on 3rd and 18 (27-24 Browns)
Ballhawks. Let’s go to the monitor for a replay:
4:40 — Weeden throws 16-yard pass to Little (27-24 Browns)
2:26 — Browns kick 44-yard field goal (30-24 Browns)
That one hurts. Let’s go to the owner’s suite, where a criminal is laughing at the Buffalo Bills.
Life is unfair. But football ain’t life. Go win the game, Jeff.
2:14 — Tuel throws 12-yard pass to Jackson (30-24 Browns)
HE’S COMING FOR YOU, BROWNS
2:00 — Tuel throws 7-yard pass to Chris Hogan (30-24 Browns)
WATCH OUT NOW
1:54 — Tuel intercepted by T.J. Ward, who returns it for a touchdown (37-24 Browns)
End of Game
You, At Work This Week
It’s Friday. Go home and watch baseball already.
We’ll see you next week.
