DENVER (WIVB) - It was a Mile High Mess. The Bills did not play well in their second preseason game, losing to the Broncos 24-10. The starting units played most of the first half, and neither the offense or defense did anything to make Bills fans feel good about their progress.
Ryan Fitzpatrick played four series, and generated just three points. Three times the Bills were forced to punt. On the fourth drive,a drop by Marcus Easley resulted in a Broncos interception. Fitzpatrick finished 6-16, 44 yards and the one interception.
The defense fared no better. In their three series, they allowed two ten play Denver touchdown drives. Marcell Dareus did have his second preseason sack on the first drive. Broncos starting quarterback Kyle Orton was 10-13 for 144 yards and a touchdown pass to Willis McGahee. The former Bills running back also had a 1 yard touchdown run.
The Bills only touchdown came on a Tyler Thigpen to Felton Huggins fourth quarter touchdown.
The Bills also suffered some potentially damaging injuries. Receiver Donald Jones was knocked out of the game on a hard and illegal sideline hit by Denver safety Rahim Moore.
Running back Johnny White, the rookie 5th round draft pick, was carted off and taken to a local hospital after banging his head on the turf. Former BIlls linebacker Mario Haggan flung White to the turf, where he stayed for about ten minutes before being put on a backboard and wheeled off.
Linebacker Arthur Moats left the game with a leg injury.
