The Bills offensive line had some trouble with stunts and twists by the Houston defensive line on Sunday. It was a practice that the San Diego defensive line also used with some success against Buffalo. Center Eric Wood knows they’ll keep seeing it each week until they prove they can block it up.
“It’s tough on the road, communication was tough and they got us on some stunts and we all know that,” said Wood. “They beat us in matchups up front and we’re all to blame. You just keep working and keep drilling it. We’ve got a lot of young offensive linemen new to positions and they’ll keep getting better.”
Buffalo’s offensive linemen were in pass protection twice as much as they run blocked on Sunday as the Bills threw the ball 44 times. Wood said whatever is called it’s their job to execute it.
“When you get behind and early on we weren’t running the ball as effectively you’ve got to be prepared to pass block,” he said. “I’m not going to sit here and complain about that. That’s the nature of the business. A lot of teams in this league pass it 44 times every week. We’ve got to do a better job.”
