Bills' Gailey: 'It looked ugly. It felt ugly. It was ugly'


The Buffalo Bills' offense was turrrible Thursday night.

The quarterbacks combined for a 14-for-34, one interception and no touchdown showing while getting sacked four times, and the offense as a whole combined for eight false starts and an illegal motion that negated a touchdown pass from Ryan Fitzpatrick to Stevie Johnson.

“It looked ugly, it felt ugly, it was ugly,” Bills coach Chan Gailey said, according to the team's website. “But I think we’ll learn from it and get better from it. We get to go back to work Saturday and that’s what we plan to do.”

Fitzpatrick, Buffalo's starting signal-caller, completed just six of 14 pass attempts with the first-team offense. The Bills operated in the no-huddle while Fitzpatrick was behind center.

“It was frustrating all night,” said Fitzpatrick. "We wish we would’ve been more productive and done things better, but you chalk it up to a learning experience and hope everybody comes out healthy and you move on.”

The silver lining in the whole thing was rookie receiver T.J. Graham leading the team in pass-catching with three receptions for 37 yards. His longest catching play was 21 yards.

Backup quarterback Vince Young led the team in rushing with 37 yards on five scampers, with his longest rush going for 21 yards.
