Gameday Grades: These grades would have been great for the first 35 minutes but unfortunately the NFL is a 60 minute game. Gameday Grades.
Bills Blitz: The Raiders woke up just in time to blow past the Bills so fast that Buffalo couldn't get a look at the train that just steamrolled past them. Buffalo opened up a 24-9 third quarter lead when the Raiders took charge scoring 29 unanswered points in less than 15 minutes of gametime to take control of a 38-24 victory that likely puts a daggar in the Bills playoff hopes. The Bills opened up their lead thanks to two Mike Gillislee touchdown runs and a Tyrod Taylor scoring run. David Carr threw two touchdown pass and Latavius Murray ran for two for the Raiders. Taylor turned in a solid two and a half quarters then was terrible the rest of the way as he couldn't move the offense and unlike him, he turned it over twice with an interception and a fumble. It was just the third time since 2000 that the Bills blew a 15 point lead. Bills Blitz.
Injury Update: John Miller left the game and went into concussion protocol. He did not return but was cleared. LeSean McCoy suffered from cramps and missed a couple of plays but returned and played very well. Injury Page.
