Insta-Graham: Don't even bother reading this Bills-Cowboys recap

Sunday's game in Ralph Wilson Stadium was a chore.

The Buffalo Bills defeated the Dallas Cowboys, 16-6, in a constant rain and with temperatures barely above freezing. There were no playoff implications. Each team had been mathematically eliminated.

*Yawn*

Buffalo's lone Pro Bowler, running back LeSean McCoy, didn't play. Dallas' superstar receiver, Dez Bryant, didn't play.

Bills defensive tackle Marcell Dareus suffered a shoulder injury 17 seconds into the second quarter and didn't return. Cowboys cornerback Barry Church left with an arm injury in the second half.

*Sigh*

Buffalo scored its first touchdown, but Dan Carpenter missed the extra point.

Thankfully, Dan Bailey previously missed a field goal. We thought we otherwise would have been subjected to overtime.

Then Mike Gillislee tore off a 50-yard touchdown run with 2:25 to play and end the, ahem, drama. Gillislee played four games this year but has rushed for three touchdowns -- as many as McCoy.

Dallas quarterback Kellen Moore, signed off the practice squad this month, wasn't any good. Tyrod Taylor made a couple sweet throws, but tossed an inexplicable interception in the end zone from Dallas' 4-yard line right before halftime.

And whatever.

*Zzzzzzzz*
