RYAN FITZPATRICK LEADS BILLS’ VICTORY
Tue, 25 Sep 2012 02:30 AM EDT

Chan Gailey didn’t wish to consider facing New England next week. He didn’t consider life without running backs C.J. Spiller or Fred Jackson or anything else.

All Buffalo’s coach wanted was a little time.

Overcoming the loss of Spiller in 1st quarter to a shoulder injury, the Bills got 3 touchdown passes from Ryan Fitzpatrick and finished an 8-game road losing streak Sunday with a 24-14 win over the Browns, who remained winless and walked off their own field hearing the roar of Buffalo fans.

Fitzpatrick, doing enough to keep the offense moving, finished 22 of 35 for 208 yards as the surprising Bills (2-1) turned to their passing game after Spiller, the NFL’s leading rusher who has been filling in for the injured Jackson, went down with an injury that may likely sideline him a few weeks.

It was the 1st road win since the 2011 season opener for the revamped Buffalo Bills.

”We had fun,” said defensive end Mario Williams, Buffalo’s $100 million man who recorded his 1st sack since signing with the Buffalo as a free agent. Football spreads

And as the seconds ticked off, some of Buffalo’s players celebrated with thousands of Buffalo Bills fans that made the short drive over from Western N.Y.

Before he was hurt while being tackled, Spiller scored on a 32-yard screen pass from Fitzpatrick, who also threw a 9-yard TD to T.J. Graham in first quarter and hooked up with Stevie Johnson from 9 in the f4rth to close the scoring as the Bills tuned up for next week’s home game against the powerful Patriots.

Gailey does not expect Spiller to be back the week after next and it may be some time before the Bills have him in their backfield.

”I do not accept it’s long, long-term,” Gailey related. ”If he missed a week that’s long for me. He is going to be out for sure this week and then we’ll see.”

Spiller will undergo further testing. He was not available for interviews.

As for the Browns (0-3), their pain worsened.

Cleveland fell behind 14-0 in the 1st quarter and went on to lose its 9th straight dating to last season. The young Browns have dropped 12 of 13 under 2nd-year coach Pat Shurmur, whose job security is fast becoming a hot topic with new owner Jimmy Haslam III set to take over the franchise the next month.

By the closing minutes, all which remained within the stadium on a chilly day were empty orange seats and emboldened Bills fans, who were inspired by Buffalo wide receiver Stevie Johnson to scream as if they were back in Orchard Park.

”I do not like it,” Browns LB D’Qwell Jackson claimed. ”I don’t like it whatsoever. I’ve been here a very long time and I haven’t ever experienced that. It’s humbling. It is unfortunate we weren’t ready to put out a better effort than we probably did. I just can’t wait to get this nasty taste out of my mouth. It stings at the moment, I’m not gonna lie.

”But we have got a long season ahead, so we have to move on from it.”
