Buffalo had a horrible preseason a year ago - the starting offense scored just three points over 15 series in five games - and Gailey and his players are hoping to use this August to get it right.
They’re not off to a good start.
The Bills scratched 13 players due to injuries, including five linebackers and four offensive linemen. Then Jackson and Lynch both went down on the offense’s opening drive. Buffalo also committed three morale-sapping third-down penalties.: holding on tight end Jonathan Stupar that killed a drive; roughing the passer on linebacker Aaron Maybin that kept one Redskins‘ touchdown drive alive; and illegal contact against Andra Davis that led to another Washington touchdown.
“We have a lot of work to do. A lot of work,” Davis said. “We’re still learning this defense. We’ll learn from this.”
Edwards, in a three-way competition for the starting job, completed 6 of 12 passes for 58 yards and had an interception returned 33 yards by DeAngelo Hall, setting up a Redskins score. Another mistake for the lowlight reel: Ellis Lankster muffed a punt for a turnover in the third quarter.
Buffalo trailed 35-3 before Ryan Fitzpatrick’s 5-yard pass to rookie David Nelson late in the third quarter. First-round pick C.J. Spiller debuted with four carries for 16 yards.
The Redskins scored their most points in a preseason game since 1988.
