The NFL is tough to play tackle, I can tell you that first hand, Pugh said. Everyone wants to come and take shots at Ereck and that’s kicking somebody while they’re down. He knows he didn’t do what he’s supposed to do tonight. He’s 23 years old and going out there trying to do everything he can. It hurts me to see one of my teammates and someone I try to help out, to see him get beat up like that.
The Giants are 0-2 and have one offensive touchdown to their name this season. With Beckham back, not only are there still issues, but ones that he clearly cannot fix on his own.
We have to analyze everything we’re doing, McAdoo said. We can’t pull points out of a hat. We have to block better, we have to move the ball better, and we can’t turn the ball over.
Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson was ruled questionable to return with a quad injury.
Touchdown. That was easy. A nine-play, 86-yard, methodical drive on the Falcons’ first possession of the game ended with a 1-yard Devonta Freeman touchdown run on a pitch to the right. The drive took 5:09 off the clock. 7-0, Falcons.
Those who took under 59 in this one might not have known something about Buffalo this season; it entered Saturday as one of 11 FBS teams without a fourth-quarter touchdown. The Bulls, unfortunately for some bettors, would get off that list against Florida Atlantic.
With less than three minutes left in the game, Buffalo led 27-24 before backup quarterback Drew Anderson threw his first career touchdown, a 20-yarder to Anthony Johnson. Now with the Bulls’ lead at 34-24, bettors on the under needed a scoreless 2:37 to end the game. They wouldn’t get it however, as Devin Singletary’s one-yard score with 73 seconds left sent the total over.
