He also ran into O'Leary to help foul up a second-and-4 run in the third quarter.

It's safe to say that safety was a major concern heading into this season, as the Bills essentially rebuilt their entire secondary. The Bills sit atop the AFC East after Week 1.

"I was running a route and I just stepped and I just fell", Olsen said, according to the Observer. "Sometimes, it is what it is".


Olsen is the only tight end in National Football League history with three consecutive seasons of 1,000 or more receiving yards. Taylor might have hit O'Leary over the middle two plays later but threw to Patrick DiMarco, who dropped a tough catch.

Panthers coach Ron Rivera said Peppers was simply awesome and is turning out to be a great fit in Carolina with three sacks in two games. He managed just 19 yards on 12 carries. Tyrod Taylor didn't have to do too much against the Jets, passing for 224 yards and two scores with an interception, but he seems to have a solid rapport with new receiver Jordan Matthews, who had a team-high 61 receiving yards in his Bills debut.

The Panthers defense held San Francisco to 51 rush yards in their 23-3 win. Linebacker Thomas Davis led the Panthers with seven tackles, including five solos, the same as cornerback James Bradberry.


The Buffalo Bills fall to 1-1 and will continue their campaign against the Denver Broncos at 1 o'clock on September 24th. Whether it's getting the ball out on the sack because a sack is just a tackle for loss. Kalil did not have the lateral speed to keep the Bills' defensive ends in front of him. He overthrew tight end Ed Dickson on a wide-open play, and also overthrew running back Christian McCaffrey on a would-be touchdown late in the game. The following drive, on second and ten, he took off once more and got the required yardage for the first down.

The Panthers moved to 2-0 with a 9-3 win over the Bills in Week 2, but in a game that featured very little offense Carolina lost a key playmaker.

After a quiet performance from both Kelvin Benjamin and Devin Funchess in Week 1, the wide receiver duo tallied a combined 10 catches for 145 yards on Sunday.


Olsen left in the second quarter with a foot injury and did not return and the team later re-Tweeted a quote from Olsen saying he broke his foot.
