Naturally, a Thanksgiving meal recap was a must...
How did so many team miss on Russell Wilson?
Russell Wilson was selected by the Seahawks with the 12th pick in the third round (75th overall) of the 2012 draft. Wilson had been projected by NFL scouts and analysts to be a middle-round pick because of his size at 5'11.
In his rookie season Wilson led the Seahawks to a 11-5 regular season record and this year has the Seattle riding high at 11-1.
Among the class of quarterbacks drafted last season that included Andrew Luck and RG III, Wilson may stand alone. He has 15 career games of a passer rating of at least 100.00 and a playoff win.
Wilson is compared to Drew Brees because of their similar stature.
Never mind 31 teams passed over Wilson, but how did the Bills by pass Wilson?
Bills defensive tackle Kyle Williams summed it up best. “It’s just so frustrating losing in the last second. This is not the first, second, third or fourth time.” Sunday's ending is something Bills fans know all too well.
Over the last 14 years its seems as if the Bills create new ways to lose. And Sunday's game against the Falcons was a loss that should not of happened but it did.
If either Stevie Johnson or Scott Chandler take care of the football, the Bills would have been in position to improve to 5-7.
The Bills were in field goal range when EJ Manuel found Johnson with a pass on a crossing pattern in the final 30 seconds. Johnson made the catch at the 30-yard line and but had the ball punched loose which was recoverd by Atlanta.
In overtime Chandler hauled in pass from Manuel over the middle was headed for midfield. but Robert Alford knocked the ball loose and gave the Falcons possession. Moments later, Matt Bryant kicked the winner in OT.
Buffalo built a 14-0 lead over one of the worst teams in the NFL and let the Falcons back into the game. Atlanta scored 17 straight points and outscored the Bills, 24-3, during one stretch.
The 34 points allowed by the Bills on Sunday was the third time they’ve allowed at least 30 in a game this season.
Atlanta entered the game ranked 31st in the NFL in rushing, averaging just 74.7 yards a game. Against the Bills, the Falcons rushed for 151.
Buffalo fell to 4-8 and has not won back-to-back games since early in the 2012 season.
They did what 4-8 teams do. They found a way to lose.
