Leodis McKelvin might have taken a step back in Buffalo’s depth chart at cornerback, but it hasn’t kept him from making an impact in the last two games. In the Week 2 win his 88-yard punt return for a TD put the game away. This week he turned in a play to all but put the game to bed. The interesting thing was he wasn’t even supposed to be on the field at the time.
McKelvin again contributed on special teams with a couple of quality returns including a 33-yarder on a punt return that led to a touchdown for the Bills. Late in the game, McKelvin also had an interception with 4:29 left when he stepped in front of a Brandon Weeden pass intended for Josh Gordon on a 2nd-and-20 at the Bills 31-yard line to prevent the last threat by Cleveland to get points. But McKelvin wasn’t supposed to be on the field.
“I was on the sideline and Aaron Williams said he had something in his eye and couldn’t see,” McKelvin told Buffalobills.com. “And they were calling for T (Terrence McGee), but after I didn’t see Terrence I just jumped on the field so our defense was ready for the next play.”
McKelvin apparently was as he recorded the sixth interception of his career and first since Week 3 last season against New England.
