ORCHARD PARK, NY- Youth is being served on the Bills this season. Many young players have made many significant contributions to whatever success the Bills have had so far this season.
Everyone knows all about quarterback Josh Allen who was drafted seventh overall by the Bills last spring. He's 3 and 3 as a starter and returned to the lineup against Jacksonville last Sunday. Allen threw a touchdown pass and ran for a touchdown. He also set a franchise record for rushing yards by a quarterback with 101 yards.
Allen's touchdown pass covered 75 yards and was caught by undrafted free agent Robert Foster. Foster was on the team, released, and brought back. Head coach Sean McDermott said when Foster came back "He got a wake up call. I liked his approach when he came back. Young players have to learn you're not on scholarship.".
The Bills and Sabres are both in Florida this week. McDermott said he was at the Sabres game last night but had to leave before overtime. The Sabres won their tenth straight game. McDermott said "There's great excitement around our city for sports in Buffalo." He was reminded that the last time the Bills were in Florida they beat the Dolphins to help clinch a playoff spot and end their long playoff drought. About that he said "We shared a great moment in Miami last year. It was last year. We're a different team, they're a different team. We've moved on.
The Bills hope to extend their winning streak to three Sunday in Miami against the Dolphins,
