Third quarter analysis: McCoy keeps Bills comfortably ahead after Griffin TD

The Browns got the score back within one touchdown during the third quarter, but the Bills answered with a quick touchdown drive to regain a comfortable lead.

LeSean McCoy capped a six-play, 75-yard drive with a 3-yard touchdown that made the score 24-10. He earned his sixth 100-yard game of the year midway through the quarter. Cleveland added a field goal near the end of the period.

Robert Griffin III led the Browns touchdown drive on their first possession after halftime. He hit Andrew Hawkins for 33 yards and then channeled 2012 and unleashed a dazzling, 18-yard scramble for a touchdown that Kyle Williams, Jerry Hughes and Preston Brown will see again in their nightmares.

The Bills answered with a touchdown drive of their own, set up by Taylor’s 28-yard scramble and a roughing-the-passer penalty that added to a 9-yard pass to Charles Clay.

Taylor runs to records: Thanks to his long scramble in the third quarter, Taylor now owns the top two quarterback rushing seasons in Bills history after breaking Doug Flutie’s record of 476 last year. Taylor also passed Jim Kelly for second in career rushing yards by a QB in franchise history.
