Buffalo Bills

–Cryus Kouandjio came up with the grade of the night for the Bills putting together an overall performance of +3.2. That’s quite a turnaround from last preseason where he couldn’t put together a positively graded performance.

–Bryce Brown was the most impressive of all the running backs on Friday. He had a +1.7 grade and really ran well once McCoy’s night was over.

–Tyrod Taylor’s performance drew quite a bit of praise, and rightfully so. He still needs to be more consistent as a passer however, as his good plays were offset with some of his poorer throws, ultimately earning an overall grade of +0.7.
