An exciting weekend in Canton for the Buffalo Bills, highlighted by Andre Reed’s enshrinement into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, has come to an end.

Sunday night’s Hall of Fame Game wasn’t quite as enthusing for the Bills, who lost 17-13 to the New York Giants, but the first preseason game should always come with its ups and downs. The good news for the Bills is that the loss, even though they tried to win, won’t matter at all when the regular-season games begin.

It’s important to remember that just one game into the preseason—there’s still four more exhibition games to go but the games that matter begin—it’s still way too early to jump to conclusions about any players. Young, inexperienced players are expected to have some hiccups early in the preseason.

With that being said, there were members of the Bills whose performances from Sunday night deserve praise, while there were others who need to be better to make positive contributions his fall.

The Buffalo Bills traveled to Florida for the second time in as many weeks to face a Jacksonville Jaguars team who came in on a three-game winning streak after starting the season with eight straight losses.

The Bills came into the game on a two-game losing streak, while rookie quarterback EJ Manuel was coming off a dreadful, four-interception performance in Buffalo’s Week 14 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  This game was a good day for Manuel to rebuild his confidence, however, as the Jaguars came into the game ranked 29th in total defense and 30th in points allowed.

Due to key takeaways by the defense and three Manuel touchdowns, the Bills (5-9) pulled out a 27-20 win against Jacksonville (4-10) Sunday.

The Buffalo Bills went into Sunday’s game against the New York Jets coming off their worst showing of the season in a Week 10 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. After nothing had worked well against the Steelers for the Bills offense and quarterback EJ Manuel, all eyes were on the quarterback and the Bills offense as it was set to go against a strong New York Jets defense in the Bills’ first AFC East rematch of the season.

The Jets beat the Bills 27-20 in Week 3, but Sunday’s game went much differently, with the Bills blowing the Jets out for a 37-14 victory. Things did not look good for Manuel in the days leading up to the game as the Bills’ top two receivers, Robert Woods and Stevie Johnson, were ruled out with injuries. This left second-year T.J. Graham, rookie Marquise Goodwin, inexperienced Chris Hogan and underused Marcus Easley to serve as Buffalo’s receiving corps Sunday.

Even with those injuries and swirling gusts at Ralph Wilson Stadium, the Bills scored their highest point total of the season Sunday.

Five plays into the Buffalo Bills’ first series of the second half, the game was going about as well as anyone could have expected for the home team in Ralph Wilson Stadium.

Even though the Bills had to rely upon their third starting quarterback of the season, undrafted rookie Jeff Tuel, to lead their offense against the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs and their elite defense, the Bills were on the verge of taking a two-touchdown lead. On a drive that started with a 61-yard run by injury-plagued running back C.J. Spiller, a defensive pass interference penalty in the end zone gave the Bills offense first-and-goal from inside the 1-yard line.

Three plays later, everything changed.
