While one rookie continues to struggle, another has made a
big play to keep the Buffalo Bills in today’s game.
Rookie linebacker Kiko Alonso perfectly read Jets
quarterback Geno Smith, intercepting him and returning the ball 32 yards to the
New York 13-yard line. Alonso became the first Bills rookie to intercept passes in consecutive games since Jairus Byrd in 2009.
The Bills’ offense led by rookie quarterback EJ Manuel,
however, continues to struggle horribly. After two runs by Fred Jackson on the drive set up by Alonso's interception, Manuel
threw out of bounds, intended for T.J. Graham. It was a continutation of a game-long struggle for the Bills' rookie quarterback.
