No Stevie Johnson or Robert Woods? No problem! Blazing rookie Marquise Goodwin and second-year man T.J. Graham provided enough pop to keep the passing game rolling, helping out E.J. Manuel on some flutterballs and logging a TD apiece. Safety Da’Norris Searcy got a touchdown of his own on a particularly poor Geno Smith toss. C.J. Spiller’s massive faceplant has helped to hamstring the offense, but some building blocks are in place on both sides of the ball to bring some long-overdue hope for the future home to Buffalo.
WMU was reasonably efficient on standard downs (37th in standard downs success rate) but played pretty passive, inefficient ball on passing downs; the Broncos鈥?sack rate was actually higher on standard downs (6.2 percent) than passing downs (5.3 percent), which isn鈥檛 supposed to happen. That resulted in quite a few second- or third-and-long bailouts.

A colleague of Lester鈥檚 at Syracuse, Daoust runs the type of defense that Lester hated facing as a quarterback.

The system, Lester said, is frustrating to throwing quarterbacks as they need to wait to read the defense after the play has started.
