Tip of hat to O-line

They’ve been much maligned this preseason, but on Sunday the offensive line did top notch work in the 41-7 victory.

Ryan Fitzpatrick was sacked just once  and though the statistics say he was hit five other times, I personally only recall seeing a pair of legitimate shots. Head coach Chan Gailey tipped his hat to his linemen as well.

“The key to the whole thing is pass protection and I think we got sacked one time,” he said. “Erik (Pears) let the guy get around the corner. We got hit maybe two more times, but other than that Fitz was able to stand back there and see things and throw it where he needed to throw it. The pass protection was huge for us.”

If the pass protection stays the course the Bills will be putting up a lot of points this season.
