Bills Miss Chance to Upset Panthers; Lose 9-3

Posted September 18, 2017

GETTING HIS KICKS: Gano was locked in a kicking battle in the preseason, but is 6 for 6 on field goal attempts so far this season.

A Tyrod Taylor pass bounced off the hands of rookie wide receiver Zay Jones inside the Carolina 5 on fourth and 11 from the Carolina 33, and the Panthers survived.

Earlier in the game, Carolina lost all-pro tight end Greg Olsen, and he was later seen on the sideline on crutches.

Cassini spacecraft makes final approach to Saturn
Better that, they figured, than Cassini accidentally colliding with a moon that might harbor life and contaminating it. Any tiny fragments that survive the inferno will sink, melt, and ultimately become diluted in the planet's interior.

Bills fall to 1-1 and will come back home before hosting Denver next week.

The Panthers were held to two Gano field goals, and could have at least had another one had Newton not been sacked on back-to-back plays in the second quarter to push Carolina out of field goal range.

Olsen joined the Panthers the same year the team drafted Cam Newton and the tight end has been a security blanket of sorts. Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin left after taking a brutal hit to his left shoulder in the end zone from Bills FS Jordan Poyer, but did return.

Canelo vows to knock out Golovkin
The 35-year-old is looking to extend his undefeated professional record to 38 fights against Mexico's Canelo, 27. His fans will hope to see more of the knockout artist GGG than the nice guy Golovkin.

Meeting with reporters in the locker room after the game, Olsen confirmed that the injury, which occurred late in the first half, is a broken foot.

Tyrod Taylor and the Buffalo Bills almost salvaged a poor offensive day, but Taylor's 4th-and-11 pass sailed into and out of the hands of an open Zay Jones on the one-yard-line as the receiver lunged and fell to the ground. It yielded only nine points and 255 yards, proving that the unit is no fluke after a good opening game against the lowly Jets. Buffalo had three first-half sacks of Newton, including one that took the Panthers out of field goal range.

Tyrod Taylor threw for only 15 yards in the first half, and LeSean McCoy gained a net of zero yards on three carries over the first two quarters.

By that point, the original 90-day travel ban will have lapsed and the 120-day refugee ban will have just a few weeks to run. As a matter of law, the Supreme Court can't rule on a case that no longer presents an ongoing issue.
