Thad Lewis suffering from injured ribs and the flu meant it was Tuel Time in Buffalo on Sunday. While Jeff Tuel has delivered the expected turnovers, the Bills did hold the lead for a significant portion of their game against the undefeated Chiefs thanks to a 59-yard touchdown pass to Marquise Goodwin in the first half.
Not only did this give Tuel an unexpected moment of competence, it allowed him to show off his tennis forehand motion in celebration.
Of course, Tuel has thrown two interceptions since then, the worst of which came in the second half as the Bills were threatening to grab a two-score lead. On a drive in which the Bills had yet to attempt a pass, Tuel dropped back on the Chiefs’ 1. Even though Stevie Johnson streaked open in the end zone, Tuel dumped in into the flat, into the waiting hands of Sean Smith, who returned it for a tying touchdown.
