According to Bills players in the locker room, DT Alex Carrington got a piece of the 38-yard field goal attempt that caromed off the left upright leading to overtime in Buffalo’s dramatic 19-16 overtime victory at Arizona.

“Once they got inside the 30-yard line we made the huddle call, coach DeHaven put us in an all out rush, and Kelvin Sheppard was pushing on Alex Carrington and got his hand up and tipped the ball and I saw it hit the goal post and I couldn’t tell if it fell through or fell back forward,” said George Wilson. “I saw the referees wave it off no good and it was like a breath of life.

“I think once you turn on that tape and see all 11 guys laying it on the line to try to keep them from getting the field goal. You never know which play is going to make the difference in the game. Our guys were very resilient today. I’m proud of our coaching staff. Nobody wavered, nobody pointed the finger. And that’s what got us the victory.”
