Second-quarter analysis: Jerry Hughes' temper tantrum the only sign of life for Bills

What exactly does it look like when a team quits on its coach?

The Buffalo Bills' second quarter should give you a pretty good idea.

The Bills allowed the Washington Redskins to score three touchdowns on their first three possessions -- something that hadn't happened since 1999 -- in falling behind, 21-0. The Redskins piled up 265 yards and 14 first downs in the first half, averaging 9.1 yards per play.

The only sign of life the Bills showed came from defensive end Jerry Hughes, who apparently flipped over a training table and screamed at his teammates on the sideline. Hey, at least someone has a pulse.

Stuffed: The Bills' offense got the ball back after Redskins punt returner Jamison Crowder muffed the catch, with the fumble being recovered by Corey Graham. After driving down to the Washington 1-yard line, the Bills ran four plays, but were stopped on each one. Running back LeSean McCoy got stuffed three times in a row, including one play the Redskins were offside, before Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor threw incomplete intended for Sammy Watkins on fourth down.

Going nowhere: The Bills get absolutely nothing out of their kick-return game, ranking 30th in the league coming into the game. It's no surprise after watching Marcus Thigpen manage to average only 17 yards on three attempts.
