Buffalo Bills: Thad Lewis Regresses In Loss
The Buffalo Bills fell to the New Orleans Saints yesterday by a score of 35-17. It was a tough effort by the Bills who tried to stay in the game, but there was just too much Drew Brees for the defense to ultimately handle. On the flip side, Thad Lewis had what was probably his worst game yet as E.J. Manuel‘s replacement in the lineup.
Lewis turned over the ball three times, including fumbling on the first offensive play of the game. He fumbled three times and lost two, and threw an INT. What’s worse was that when the Bills were within 11 points in the fourth quarter, Lewis looked like he couldn’t hit the broad side of an aircraft carrier with many of his throws. He was missing wide-open receivers all over the field. There were plays to be had on the Saints’ defense, but Lewis simply couldn’t execute.
Of course, when Brees is on the other side throwing five perfectly-thrown touchdowns, your QB is going to look inferior. But, it seems like Lewis brought a cap gun to a bazooka fight. He did make one throw to T.J. Graham for a long TD that was wiped out by a holding call, but he didn’t try to go downfield after that.
Rob Ryan‘s defense brought pressure all day and Lewis simply didn’t know how to handle it. Things don’t easier for him as the Kansas City Chiefs and their league lead in sacks come to town this weekend. The bottom line is that while Lewis is a fun, tough, gritty player, it is becoming very clear who the best QB on the Bills’ roster is. It’s Manuel, and the sooner the Bills get him back in the lineup, the better off they will be.
