For the first 57 minutes of Sunday’s game against the Minnesota Vikings, it looked as though this column would be all about everything that went wrong for the Buffalo Bills offense on Sunday.

The Bills flipped the script in the game’s final three minutes and seven seconds, as quarterback Kyle Orton led a 15-play, 80-yard touchdown drive, which ended with just one second remaining in the game, to give Buffalo a 17-16 victory in a game that was otherwise ugly for both teams.

An unusual aspect of Sunday’s loss to the New England Patriots, in contrast with most other recent losses by the Buffalo Bills, is that their defense, not their offense, deserved the brunt of the blame for the team’s 37-22 loss that gives the Patriots a one-game lead in the AFC East.

In spite of my skepticism after the decision, it has been evident through two games that Kyle Orton is an upgrade at quarterback for the Bills over EJ Manuel.

Much like the winning effort last week that BBD’s Josh Cornwall documented, it was a tale of two halves again Sunday for Orton and the Bills offense.

The Buffalo Bills won a roller-coaster game Sunday, with a 14-point comeback over the Detroit Lions that was the team’s first double-digit comeback win since beating the New England Patriots in Week 3 of the 2011 season. The effort to win that game started last Monday, when the Bills announced a quarterback change.

In what I would have to think was at least a semi-intentional troll job, the Detroit Lions played the Foo Fighters classic “My Hero” through the loudspeakers of Ford Field after new Buffalo Bills starting quarterback and Dave Grohl look-alike Kyle Orton led the Bills to their first touchdown of the game early in the fourth quarter.

Ultimately, however, it was a kicker who looks like Kid Rock who was the hero for Buffalo on Sunday, as Dan Carpenter made a 58-yard field goal — the second-longest made kick in team history — with just four seconds remaining to propel to the Bills to a 17-14 victory, improving their record to 3-2 for the season.
