Rushing yards against a near record

Posted by Chris Brown on October 19, 2009 – 2:14 am

The Bills defense came oh so close to setting a club record for most rushing yards allowed in a game in team history.

Buffalo surrendered 318 yards on the ground to the Jets, including 212 in the first half. The total was just two yards shy of the team record for most rushing yards allowed in franchise annals.

The Bills gave up 320 rushing yards to the Dallas Texans on Sept. 30, 1962 in a 41-21 loss.

The players feel the errors they had in the game can be corrected.

“We were upset with the amount of rushing yards they had, but the vast majority was on just two plays,” said Paul Posluszny. “On both of those plays we knew we just made mistakes. We got out of our gaps and we knew it was something we could easily correct. When Perry came in at halftime he said all we had to do was not panic, stick with our game plan and stick with everything we know  and it worked out for us.”

Hey at least Buffalo won yesterday.
