Brian Moorman Punts Buffalo Bills To Victory

NFL punters rarely steal the headlines. After all, they only get on the playing field five or six times a week; but sometimes these can be the plays that make the difference between winning and losing. And so was the case yesterday with the Bills' Brian Moorman.

The Bills and Dolphins were fighting tooth and nail, wrangled up at 14 apiece late in the fourth quarter of yesterday's game in Orchard Park, NY. That's when the Bills were mounting a drive around midfield, but on a 4th-and-9 the Bills were forced to punt and Moorman made his leg count, booting a 48-yard beauty. And when it rolled out of bounds, the Dolphins were pinned at their own two yard line.

"It kind of drifted over right at the last second and that kind of scared me, but got the right bounce," the Pro Bowl punter said after the game. And that was the difference.

The Dolphins went three-and-out and forced their punter, Brandon Fields, to punt from the back of their end zone, which resulted in excellent field position for the Bills. Of course, a career long 56-yard field goal by Rian Lindell on the ensuing drive put the Bills up for good.

But give credit where credit is due, Brian Moorman deserves a game ball.
