The Buffalo Bills lead the Indianapolis Colts 17-0 at halftime.

Halftime thoughts on the Week 1 contest between the Buffalo Bills and Indianapolis Colts.

Three Bills new additions playing well

Percy Harvin, Charles Clay, and Karlos Williams all played well in their Bills debut. Harvin recorded a 51-yard touchdown pass and finished the half with 76 yards on four receptions.

Clay has two receptions in the first half that have gone for 32 yards. Clay fumbled his second reception but he was able to recover the ball. The tight end had another catch that went for a big gain but he was called for a chop block on the play. A replay showed that it clearly wasn't a chop block by the tight end.

Last, Karlos Williams made the most of his first NFL carry. The back ran the ball 26 yards for a touchdown late in the first half.

It was a great start for some new Bills additions.

Bills safeties banged up

On the first play of the game, Corey Graham pursued Frank Gore on a run and looked as if he slipped on the field. As he slid towards Gore, the running back's knee connected with the side of Graham's helmet. The safety was clearly woozy as he tried to get to his feet and had to go to the locker room. He's out for the game and hopefully Graham won't miss too much time. He's a terrific safety and someone the Bills need on the field this season.

Later in the first quarter, Bacarri Rambo suffered an injury for the Buffalo Bills. His apparently wasn't as serious as he returned to the game.

Bills pressure Andrew Luck

In the first half, Luck has thrown at least five passes that could have been intercepted by the Bills. Some were balls that were hit in the air by his receivers but there were also inaccurate and high passes thrown in the vicinity of Bills players. Buffalo only turned one of those passes into an interception. Rookie Ronald Darby came up with an interception. His touchdown eventually led to a Bills touchdown. Stephon Gilmore should have had an interception on the following series, but the ball fell right out of his hands. Regardless, the Bills are making things tough for Luck in the first half.

Tyrod Taylor looks strong in first half

Taylor made his first regular season start with Buffalo and he's looked just as accurate as he did during the preseason. His best play of the half was a deep bomb to Percy Harvin for 51 yards. He finished the first half going 9-of-11 for 147 yards and touchdown. He also added 43 yards on five carries. Through one half, Taylor looks like the real deal at quarterback.

Buffalo will receive the ball to start the second half up 17-0. You couldn't ask for a better start than that.
