Buffalo Bills vs Carolina Panthers

Carolina's defense single-handedly spoiled Sean McDermott's homecoming by shutting down Buffalo's offense.

But actually, Mike Shula and head coach Ron Rivera had a great game plan against a Buffalo staff that knew them inside and out. The Panthers had to kick field goals from the Bills' 16, 10, and two-yard lines. Dennison said he was fine with those decisions because Taylor gained positive yards, even if short. The Panthers had three sacks, two by Peppers in his first home game since re-signing with them. Carolina had 77 rushing yards to add to its passing game. That's when he tallied 54 grabs for 528 yards and five touchdowns for the Baltimore Ravens in 2011. Carolina shortly announced that its star tight end would not return to the game, which the Panthers won 9-3. He was sacked six times. McDermott didn't disagree with the premise that if his team can't run, they can't move the ball. Olsen has never missed a game due to injury. Following his departure, he seen using crutches on the sideline.

As for the backup tight end, that job belongs to Ed Dickson, who had a career-high 54 catches for 528 yards back in 2011, since then he hasn't done much in his career. The two will need to fix that considering Dickson will now be the starter.

The Carolina Panthers are a fast flow defense.

Zay Jones misses pass on final Bills possession in 9-3 loss to Panthers.

There's no doubting the impressive play of the Bills defense.

It's hard to pick an offensive player to give the game ball to this week considering their massive struggles.

"We're going through that process now that you would have loved to have gone through during training camp".

That sounds cliché, but it's the way this group thinks under first-year defensive coordinator Steve Wilks, who last week said, "This defense is still under construction".

Jerry Hughes led the Bills in sacks with a total of two sacks for the day.

Cam Newton said he felt "tormented" over the injury, but that he felt "optimism" knowing that the Panthers would get him back later this season. Carolina will gladly take any production he brings to the table. He ended up being released from the Bills' preseason roster and spent the 2015-16 season on the New Orleans Saints' practice squad and made his National Football League debut before being released and claimed off waivers by the Panthers.
