Late Field Goal Pushes Bills Past Skins 17-16

The teams meet after the game 

The Bills edged the Washington Redskins 17-16 on a somber day at FedEx Field.  The contest was played just days after the passing of Redskins safety Sean Taylor, who died Tuesday from injuries suffered in a shooting incident at his home.  Taylor was honored prior to the game with a video tribute and a moment of silence.  Fans in attendance were given towels bearing Taylor’s number-21.  Washington’s defense also played the opening series with only 10 men on the field in honor of Taylor. 

Lindell’s 36-yard field goal with only four seconds remaining gave the Bills the one-point win.  His kick came after the Redskins were hit with a 15-yard penalty when Joe Gibbs called consecutive time-outs.  Lindell converted all five of his field goal tries for Buffalo, which ended a two-game slide and improved to 6-and-6.  Trent Edwards was 22-of-36 for 257 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions in the victory.  Jason Campbell tossed for 216 yards with a pick for Washington, which fell to 5-and-7 with its fourth straight loss.  Clinton Portis rushed for 50 yards with a score in the setback.

    I thought that the Bills should have down the ball on the first play of the game. It shows you what a class act the coach is.
    What a piece of work!!
