Franchise Post #2: 2011 Preseason Game 2
As the second week of the 2011 NFL Preseason winds down, let’s take a look at out Game of the Week, presented by Old Spice (smell like a man, man). The two teams are the Buffalo Bills, and the Denver Broncos.
Ryan Fitzpatrick (BUF) completely 13 passes on 18 attempts last Sunday for a total of 177 yards. His TD-INT ratio was an impressive 2-0. Although Fitzpatrick’s been the starter for a couple years now, with Thigpen playing the way he is, I just don’t know who’s gonna be starting come Week 1. Fitzpatrick/Thigpen is gonna be a good position battle to watch.
Tim Tebow and Kyle Orton (DEN) attempted 13 passes, completing 7 of them against this decent Bills D. They combined for 127 yards and 1 TD on the day.
Willis McGahee (DEN) carried the rock 5 times for an unbelievable 88 yards and 1 TD. Without his big 70 yard run, he would’ve had 4 carries for 18 (still respectable as an average however). Knowshon Moreno got the bulk of the carries last Sunday, but is it time now for McGahee to split the carries 50/50?
Back to the stats: Moreno (DEN) carried 13 times for 72 yards and 1 TD, but also had 1 FUMBLE. Very disappointing to see a fumble in the second week of Preseason.
Rookie Terrence Favors (BUF) got 13 carries for 42 yards and added 1 TD.
Fred Jackson (BUF) had nothing worth writing about, but sophomore C.J Spiller (BUF) ran the ball 16 times for 133 yards and 1 TD. Looks like Jackson is losing a step on these young RB’s.
Roscoe Parrish (BUF) caught 7 passes for 94 yards last Sunday. While he wasn’t able to break 100, he caught 2 TD’s which raised his value a TON to this team.
Sophomore Demaryius Thomas (DEN) caught only 4 passes for 80 yards last Sunday.
Final score of the game: 45-21 BUF on top over DEN.
