Fourth quarter analysis: At least it wasn't the most points allowed in Bills history

The only shred of respect left for the Buffalo Bills in the fourth quarter was that at least they didn't set the franchise record for most points allowed in a game.

Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers took the entire fourth quarter off and backup Kellen Clemens took knees to run out the final two minutes of clock, but at least that record — 58, set in 1976 — still stands.

The rest of the fourth quarter was mostly an exercise in how much embarrassment the Bills could take and how many times television cameras could show Chargers coach Anthony Lynn, who was passed over for the Bills' head-coaching position.

Tyrod Taylor led two touchdown drives in the fourth quarter to draw the score slightly closer, but the 54-24 defeat still gave Sean McDermott and the Bills consecutive 30-point losses for only the third time in team history.

LeSean McCoy had a nice stat line, running 13 times for 114 yards and touchdown, albeit against the team averaging the most rushing yards allowed. McCoy also added a 12-yard touchdown reception from Taylor in the fourth. Taylor ran for the other touchdown.

Tyrod moves up: Tyrod Taylor's touchdown pass to LeSean McCoy was his 48th with the Bills, which moved him past Doug Flutie and into sixth place on the Bills' all-time list.
