Bills embarrassed at home by the Saints

Buffalo booed off the field in second straight loss

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC-TV) - Apparently ten days was not enough time to prepare for Drew Brees and the Saints explosive offense.

Ten days also wasn't enough time to get the offense back on track either as things continue to spiral in the wrong direction in Buffalo

Buffalo opened the game with an impressive drive. Tyrod Taylor marched the offense down the field on nine plays that went 57-yards.

Kelvin Benjamin caught his first pass with his new team and LeSean McCoy picked up a 36-yard gain on the ground, which set up a Stephen Hauschka field goal.

The rest of the game was all downhill.

The Saints answered right back with a 75-yard drive, capped off by a Mark Ingram touchdown run to take the lead.

New Orleans made it 14-3 in the 2nd quarter on Ingram's second score of the night.

Buffalo was out gained 231-112 in yards in the first half and trailed 17-3 at the break.

"It's bad. It's embarrassing, two weeks in a row to get out-manned, out-worked, out everything. They schemed us well, they did a great job running the ball, passing the ball, everything," said Preston Brown.

Things would go from bad to worse in the second half.

The Saints opened the 3rd quarter with their second 75-yard scoring drive of the game. Alvin Karam put the exclamation point on it with a 5-yard rushing touchdown.

Ensuing drive, Taylor was picked off which quickly led to Ingram's third rushing score of the game.

The Bills went 25 minutes without picking up a first down at one point. 

Taylor finished the day 9 of 19 for 56 yards passing and an interception. He was pulled in the 4th quarter for rookie Nate Peterman.

The remaining crowd at New Era Field, cheered as number 2 jogged onto the field.

Peterman threw his first career touchdown pass late in the 4th quarter.

"You don't wanna start creating bad habits or start doubting yourself and that's what happens in games like this. Back to back [games] you start seeing a routine of things happening so we just gotta be professionals and look at the tape and correct it and just have a better total effort," added Lorenzo Alexander.

Buffalo managed just ten first downs and 198 yards of offense.

The Saints rushed for 298 yards on the ground and a franchise record six touchdowns. The Bills defense as gashed once again, allowing 482 yards of total offense.

"You know we're going to learn a lot about ourselves. We haven't lost two in a row and we're going to learn who the leaders on this team are, who the hard workers are, we're going to learn whose going to step up and make plays when other people are absent. Its a great opportunity to learn to move on and come together," said Richie Incognito.

New Orleans won their seventh straight game as they Bills drop their second in a row.
