Bills and McGahee impressive in debut

"Today was a good day," those were the words of Willis McGahee following his first time against NFL competion. Not only was it a good day for McGahee but a good day for the Bills on the whole.

The Bills dominated the Browns, outscoring them seven TDs to two.

The Bills first pass team defense was impressive, holding Browns' first team QB Jeff Garcia to just one completion on four attempts and also intercepted his first pass. The pick was by FS Izell Reese thanks to a tip by teammate LB Jeff Posey.

"That was not how I wanted to have my first pass a Cleveland Brown remembered," Garcia said. "I take tremendous pride in eliminating those kinds of things. It was just one of those things that was literally out of my hands."

The rush defense struggled at times, RB Lee Suggs ripped off 83 yards against them but most of that came on a 50 yard run. Of course first team DT Sam Adams was absent, as he's recovering from a hamstring injury.

On offense for the Bills, the day belonged to Willis McGahee, he had over 30 yards on 9 carries and also had 8 yards on 1 reception and had 4 TDs. Although 3 of those TDs came on three straight goal-line drills.

Also scoring for the Bills were RB Travis Henry who also scored on a goal line play. Rookie QBJ.P. Losman, who scored on a naked bootleg from the 1, capping a 65-yard drive.

Fellow rookie, WR Lee Evans also made an impression with a 50 yard catch from backup QB Travis Brown that lead to McGahee's first TD.

LB Asa Francis returned a fumble returned a fumble 73 yards for a TD as well.
