Bills offense hopes to start fresh under Lynn

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) - When it comes to the Buffalo Bills' offense, running back LeSean McCoy said simpler might be better.

The Bills are hoping a more streamlined approach under new offensive coordinator Anthony Lynn will turn things around after a 0-2 start to the season. Lynn replaced former offensive coordinator Greg Roman, who was fired on Friday.

The first thing the Bills have done under Lynn is simplify the offense in an effort to make things less complicated on the field.

"Coach Roman's a very intelligent coach. If everybody can't grasp the offense the right way ... then it won't be effective," McCoy said. "So we simplified the offense to make it easier for guys to go out there and play."

The Bills are in need of a jolt after sputtering out of the gate to start the season.

Despite the presence of playmakers such as McCoy and Sammy Watkins, the Bills rank 30th in the league in offense through two games (276.5 yards per game). They're also in a three-way tie for 22nd in points per game (19).

The Bills had just 160 yards in a Week 1 loss to Baltimore, which was their lowest offensive output in a decade and their lowest in a season opener since 1979.
