Bills WR Robert Woods is seen as a starter by the coaching staff and by most fans. So to see him running with the second unit in Sunday night’s season opener came as a bit of a surprise.
“A little bit,” admitted EJ Manuel. “It was a little surprising for Woody not to be with us with the ones, but he did great. Woody is going to be Woody with whatever he’s given. So I was still glad to see him go out there and do a great job with Jeff.”
Woods did have a solid outing with four catches for 49 yards and the team’s only touchdown converting on a 4th-and-goal play from the Giants’ two-yard line.
For Woods it wasn’t a big deal.
“It is what it is. You come out here and make plays whenever you’re on the field,” he said. “Every time I come out here I just try to prove a point. Every day is an example and just proof why I’m here.”
His performance said it all.
