Third quarter analysis: Bills' passing game comes alive

The Bills passing game came alive late in the third quarter as they extended their lead to two possessions on 30-yard touchdown pass to Justin Hunter.

Taylor had struggled to find receivers up to this point, but hit tight end Nick O’Leary for 23 yards down the sideline, and then found Hunter on a flag route on the very next play. Taylor had plenty of time to wait for the route to develop as he got great protection from left tackle Cordy Glenn and the offensive line.

Fourth-down stop: The Bills defense got a great push on a fourth-and-1 play in the third quarter and stopped Mike Davis for no gain. A host of defenders, led by Preston Brown, made the stop, which led to Hunter’s touchdown.

Highlight reel: Colin Kaepernick did his best Tyrod Taylor impression on a keeper midway through the quarter when he somehow evaded a tackle from Jerry Hughes – which would’ve gone for a safety – and got all the way to the 16-yard line. Kaepernick also broke off a 29-yard run in the quarter.
