Why no Lynch on first goal line series

Along with a lot of Bills fans I was scratching my head as to why Marshawn Lynch was not in the game for the team’s first goal line series in the first quarter. No offense to Fred Jackson, but Lynch has a good nose for the end zone in close.

Head coach Dick Jauron explained that Lynch had just taken a shot to the head prior to the goal line series.

“Marshawn got dinged a little bit, so we were looking at him,” said Jauron. “Our trainers were looking at him. We like them both there, but Marshawn is bigger. That’s the reason. I’m not saying Freddy wouldn’t have been in there anyway, but we didn’t have the option at that point.”

Lynch was fine and returned to the game and finished it. I guess it was a day when nothing was giong to go right for Buffalo.
