Buffalo takes 14-2 lead after Jake's 2nd int.

Buffalo just took a 14-2 lead in this game on a two-yard pass from QB Ryan Fitzpatrick to WR Lee Evans. It's a good thing this isn't a baseball game, although the score still sounds one, or it might already have been called because of the mercy rule. The score came with 13:52 left in the fourth quarter.

Buffalo still doesn't have 100 yards of total offense, yet leads by 12. Carolina has more than 300 yards of total offense. It's been an odd afternoon.

The Buffalo score was set up when Jake Delhomme got intercepted -- again. All 14 of Buffalo's points today have come off turnovers. The Bills have been thoroughly unable to move the ball on their own.

Buffalo's Jairus Byrd picked off Delhomme for the second time today deep in the third quarter around midfield. The pass, intended for Steve Smith, was overthrown. With a leap, Smith tipped it, but right to Byrd, who ran it back 30 yards to the Carolina 27.

Earlier in the third quarter, Carolina had failed to score yet again on a long drive. The Panthers got into the red zone shortly after a 52-yard pass from Jake Delhomme to tight end Gary Barnidge, who had sneaked behind the defense deep down the right sideline. It was the longest offensive play (by 20 yards) that Carolina had had all season.

But later on the drive, on fourth-and-1, John Fox went for it after kicker John Kasay had already missed twice (from 39 and 43 yards -- it's been a really bad afternoon for Kasay so far).

And that didn't work either (although I liked the decision to go for it). Jonathan Stewart was stopped for a two-yard loss.

Also, Carolina tight end Dante Rosario has a knee injury and will not return.

Cant wait to hear, what Fox has to say about the 14 points ( so far) off of interceptions today.

Guess the Bills are trying to show us they dont need to have a good game to win, they have the Panthers QB playing for them!

what a dumb choice by keeping delhomme as the QB and for signing AJ feely who told the media "i hope i dont play until next year"...remember we need a QB not another jake. GARCIA is on the MARKET!! grab him and grab him now or else not only will 89 be unhappy, but julius will not want to be back again next season. besides, if john fox listened to what 89 says they'll know "personally (jake), i hate you as a qb, but i love you as a person" meaning, he needs to go....

Jake is awful but someone else made the decision to have him on the field. Richardson should have fired the GM and coach long ago for their incompetence. The GM made the terrible decision to sign Jake for a big contract for guaranteed money after that playoff debacle last year and the coaches play calling have been the worst in team history. Can we please go to Raleigh and get Coach Cower before the Redskins do. We already missed out on Vick and Garcia.

Jerry Richardson, please become involved. It is not fair to the fans that pay big bucks to watch the Panthers. Please get Fox to replace Delhomme or if will not replace Fox. Please..........................

I DO NOT understand why they wont bench Jake at least for the rest of the game to see what Moore and Feely can do...

I mean seriously what is the hold Jake has over the coach, the owner, whatever that power is, I want some.!!!

Jerry Richardson doesn't seem to care about the fans only the PSL money. Until he respects the people of NC i am becoming a Steeler fan. It's the Hornets all over again.

Fox or Delhomme must go this week. If Fox and company want to preach "loyalty", how about to the fans.

They think loyalty works one way. They want our money and wont give us a decent product. Is it gonna take Deangelo Williams to want to leave for a change to happen. I feel for our players. They deserve better.
