The Buffalo Bills had alot of ups and downs throughout the 2007 season. It was a rollercoaster year for the team. From losing close games and to losing 17 guys to the injuried reserved list, & almost losing Kevin Everett to a spinal cord injury. Some moments that made Bills fans feel proud and joyful about their team are...
Moment number five- Trent Edwards gets his first win in his young career in the NFL. The rookie out of Stanford picked up his first win when he and the Bills defeated the NY Jets in Orchard Park, NY on September 30th. A sellout home crowd watched as the Edwards and the Bills picked up their first win of the year. Edwards threw his first career touchdown pass to ex-Bills tight end Micheal Gaines. Edwards passed for 234 yards and went 22 for 28 on the day. Not a bad way to win your first game.
Moment number four- The Bills defense/special teams owning the Dallas Cowboys on Monday Night Football. It was the first Monday Night home game for the Bills in over 12 years. Even though the Bills lost on the last play of the game, they still played their hearts out until the end. It was an electricfying game. With Chris Kelsey intercepting a Tono Romo pass and returning it for a touchdown, along with George Wilson's interception for a touchdown, and Terrence McGee's kick return for a touchdown.
Moment number three- Marshawn Lynch's first one hundred yard rushing game, came against the Cincinati Bengals. In week 9 the rookie out of Cal rushed for 153 yards on 29 attemps along with two touchdowns. Lynch had a 56 yard rushing touchdown along with an passing touchdown to Bills tight end Robert Royal. This is not the last time Lynch will be having 100 yard plus games and 50 plus yard runs.
Moment number two- Bills defeat the Washington Redskins on the last play of the game. Bills kicker Rian Lindell booted a 36 yard field goal to defeat the Redskins 17-16. Lindell went five for five on the day, basically he was the Bills offense in this game.
Moment number one- Knowing that Bills tight end Kevin Everett was going to be ok from recovering from his spinal cord injury. That was a major relief knowing that he was going to be ok and live. It was a scary moment when he went down on opening day. But it was a sign of relief later knowing that he was going to be fine, that was the highlight of the year. I would rather have him live and be ok than to win a Super Bowl any day. The man is doing good, keep up the good work Kevin.
