Buffalo Bills use LeSean McCoy, turnovers to bury Oakland Raiders in blowout

Buffalo Bills use LeSean McCoy, turnovers to bury Oakland Raiders in blowout

Tyrod Taylor would punch it in from 1-yard out at the beginning of the fourth quarter extending the lead 27-7.

The icing on the cake came with three minutes remaining, when LeSean McCoy broke free for a 48-yard touchdown that was so wide open, the Bills star running back danced the final 20 yards into the endzone.

For the Raiders, Sunday's matchup against the Bills is a chance to keep both their momentum going as well as their championship aspirations intact. The touchdown was Holmes' third of the season.

Hauschka adds another field goal, this time from 44 yards.

First DeAndre Washington lost his grip when hit, the ball looping into the hands of Matt Milano, who rumbled home from 40 yards to give the Bills a 14-7 half-time lead they would not relinquish. Bills lead 14-7. A 12-play, 80-yard drive by the Bills highlighted by a lovely Tyrod Taylor pass to Holmes for 36-yards as well as a 24-yard catch by return man Brandon Tate.




Oakland scored on the opening drive of the game on a one yard touchdown run by Jamzie Olawale.

The Raiders making their best attempt at a comeback were able to go 79-yards on 9-plays for a touchdown early in the fourth quarter. That set up Taylor to sneak in on fourth down to make it 27-7 and although Derek Carr responded by capping a 75-yard drive with a four-yard TD pass to Washington with 10:54 remaining, that was as close as the Raiders got.

Taylor tossed a 6-yard touchdown to former Raiders receiver Andre Holmes to tie the game at 7-7 midway through the second quarter.

The Bills meanwhile are coming off a big home win against the Tampa Bay Bucs but they nearly spoiled a huge lead and gave the game away thanks to a second half comeback from the visitors, leaving the Raiders with something to look towards via fil sessions this week.

Now they have to hang out in Florida for a week and think about their 3-5 start, before next week's game against the Dolphins.
