A hardy win for Edwards and Bills

Notebook: A hot start for the Bills
POLLOCK: Williams taking heat for Jags’ losing start

If the 2006 game at Houston was J.P. Losman’s “hey, we might have ourselves a quarterback” moment, then one might argue the same for Trent Edwards’ performance against the Jaguars on a sweltering afternoon in Jacksonville.

The Bills took a 10-3 lead into the half on Marshawn Lynch’s 11-yard touchdown, but after Maurice Jones-Drew’s 2-yard run tied the game on the opening drive of the third quarter, the Jags gambled that an onside kick would work. It did, and they added another three points before Buffalo ever touched the ball in the second half. Another Josh Scobee field goal made it 16-10 early in the final stanza, and when the offense took the field at their own 26 with eight minutes remaining, they knew they might not get another shot if they blew this one.

Edwards made sure they didn’t, putting the Bills on the move with a 12-yard completion to Roscoe Parrish, setting them up inside the Jaguars’ 10 with a 37-yard rainbow to Lee Evans, and capping off the drive by lofting a perfectly-placed throw to James Hardy for the rookie’s first NFL touchdown. Kyle Williams ended Jacksonville’s next drive with a sack, and when Parrish broke loose on the punt return to give the Bills the ball deep in Jaguars territory, the game was over but for Rian Lindell’s insurance three-pointer.

Edwards finished the game 20-of-25 for 239 yards and the touchdown, good for a 119.8 passer rating. On the other side of the ball, the Buffalo defense managed to keep Jacksonville’s potent tandem of Jones-Drew and Fred Taylor under 100 combined rushing yards.
