Bills host Vikings in preseason matchup

Bills host Vikings in preseason matchup

The Bills' first-team offense netted 79 yards on three drives.

Bills: First-round pick CB Tre'Davious White's open-field tackle limited Cook to a 6-yard reception on third-and-12 to end the Vikings' second possession. Starting cornerback Trae Waynes (shoulder) left the game after one series and did not return.

As always, preseason games don't feature stars for an entire game and some like Buffalo running back LeSean McCoy may not see the field for more than a few snaps, if at all. He was down on the field for several minutes before being helped off. Who knows how long the family was there for before the game.

The Bills' starters played just over a quarter in the preseason opener against the Vikings on Thursday night at New Era Field.

Getting the start at running back was rookie Dalvin Cook, on his 22nd birthday. The Vikings sacked him twice.

Beaten on the first sack was right tackle Mike Remmers and left tackle Rashod Hill was the culprit on the second one. Buffalo took the lead early in the second quarter on a 42-yard kick by Stephen Hauschka and the Vikings answered with a 36-yarder from Kai Forbath at 3:26 of the second quarter. It was the fourth quarter by then and Minnesota was already up a touchdown.

On defense, Edmond Robinson got the start at weakside linebacker over Emmanuel Lamur.

There are plenty of battles on special teams.

With the reigning Super Bowl MVP sitting out, Jimmy Garoppolo completed a Brady-like 22 of 28 passes for 235 yards and two touchdowns. The sixth-year player engineered a pair of scoring drives - both set up by passes to rookie receiver Stacy Coley.

Taking over for starter Sam Bradford, Keenum went 11 of 16 for 121 yards. Henicke was 3 of 8 for 20 yards and threw an interception in addition to his touchdown pass to Adams.
