The Bills through the first two weeks of the season had given up just one pass play of 20 yards or more. On Sunday against the Chargers they gave up six, including a pair of 49-yard catches to Malcom Floyd. It made scoring drives that much easier for San Diego in their 12-point victory.
“We allowed too many big plays,” said Manny Lawson. “We can’t have that to be a great team and to get to where we want to go. We have to learn from our mistakes and limit the big play aspect.”
And even though Buffalo’s defense stiffened in the fourth quarter, Lawson felt it was too little, too late.
“We’ve got to start earlier,” he said. “We can’t wait until the fourth quarter to play defense. We have to play defense as soon as the whistle is blown, as soon as the ball is kicked, as soon as we step onm the field.”
