Coming off of their first loss of the season the Bills fell in an offensive struggle with the Carolina Panthers.
The star running back did not explain why he made a decision to stretch throughout the anthem performance. This Bills defense is legit and Atlanta has let teams hang around.
Matt Ryan is the reigning NFL MVP, Julio Jones is among the best wide receivers in the game and the backfield duo of Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman helps balance out the offense.
McCoy, 29, was the only player who stretched or did anything similar while the anthem was being sung before Sunday's games. The 38-yard field goal at the closing minute of the first quarter gave Denver a 3-0 lead.
McCoy finished with 69 yards of offense in the Bills' 26-16 win.
Tyrod Taylor bounced back in a big way against Denver, throwing a pair of touchdowns. "Fine. But when you do out and what he did yesterday, that sort of bummed me out and I lost a lot of respect for that man".
To cap off that drive, Taylor did something that was unexpected. There was running room, but a line of defenders on the goal line. Jamaal Charles rushed for 56 yards and a touchdown. He told his players he supported them. "I'm very confident putting the ball in (Taylor's) hands and letting him lead us". The Raiders are now the league's 23rd-ranked pass defense after Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins threw for 365 yards to go with three touchdowns against them on Sunday night.
"Me and Von came out the same year [in the National Football League draft] and we're good friends and we were laughing on the field, " Taylor told the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle. The team had three red zone trips and only converted for one touchdown. The Buffalo Bills scored the most points they had all year.
Sunday was a day unlike we have ever seen around the NFL. "So, every game is going to be different". "America, we stand together".
The defense once again was prolific. Those touchdowns followed a strip sack of Trevor Siemian near his own goal line and another fourth-quarter interception. On a second-and-23 play, Siemian left the pocket looking for anyone deep.
Fans began to boo as the Bills players walked in unison onto the field. Compared to a year ago the Buffalo Bills are playing as a unit, not for individual statistics (contracts), and are slowly but surely creating a winning atmosphere and in Buffalo.
Newcomers E.J Gaines, whom was acquired through the Sammy Watkins' trade, and Buffalo's top draft pick Tre'Davious White, who picked the ball off were contributing factors to victory. Another prime situation to score, which Hauschka capitalized from 53 yards out. So, you know, if we want to protest: cool, national anthem take a knee. "There are issues that need to be worked on and peaceful protests are a way to bring these issues to the surface so they can be discussed and focused on". We had a couple plays today that got away from us but they are a resilient bunch.
Against Denver, it was on his shoulders to utilize the stout defensive play and put his team in scoring position.
McCoy tweeted Saturday morning that "our president is a asshole".
"Wouldn't you love to see one of these National Football League owners when somebody disrespects our flag to say, 'Get that son of a bitch off the field right now. Out. I've just got to be better than that".
