McDermott says he's spoken to NFL on overturned Bills TD and 'still at a loss'

Buffalo Bills coach Sean McDermott said Wednesday that he has spoken to league about the controversial Kelvin Benjamin overturned touchdown in Sunday's loss to the New England Patriots and "I'm still at a loss."

That echoed what McDermott said after the game.

McDermott declined to address specifics of what he was told by league officials.

Earlier Tuesday, Bills owner Terry Pegula told WGR-550 AM, "They obviously weren't looking at the same television the rest of the country was looking at, were they?" referencing the NFL's replay center in New York City. "Everybody I talk to, and they're not Bills fans, they're not necessarily anti-Patriots, but they're all baffled by that call."

Asked about the owner's comments, McDermott said, "I support Terry and the statements he made."

With a playoff berth on the line Sunday against the Miami Dolphins, McDermott said the Bills need to "turn the page."

"We have to control what we can control," he said.

The Bills made a number of roster moves as well: Running back Marcus Murphy, wide receiver Malachi Dupree and defensive tackle Rickey Hatley have been promoted to the 53-man roster from the practice. Hatley signed over the weekend.

The Bills placed wide receiver Andre Holmes and running back Travaris Cadet on injured reserve. Defensive tackle Deonte Coleman was released.
