The Buffalo Bills defeated the Minnesota Vikings, 20-16, in both teams’ second game of the NFL preseason. However, it may have ended up with Bills quarterback Kevin Kolb being a bigger loser as he got booed in the second quarter.
Mike Rodak of ESPN details how Kolb’s night went against the Vikings, and it was far less than impressive.
Kolb’s results were mixed. He finished the first half 13-of-21 passing for 111 yards, but many of his completions came on check-downs to tight ends and running backs. Kolb also scrambled out of the pocket frequently, often throwing on the run.
The Bills were 2-for-9 on third down, and at one point in the second quarter Kolb was booed by some fans at Ralph Wilson Stadium after his pass to wide receiver Chris Hogan on third-and-8 fell incomplete.
After E.J. Manuel impressed in the first week, it may not be long before the Bills decide to make the 16th overall pick in this year’s draft their starter.
Rodak wrote earlier that the job is Manuel’s to lose, and Kolb didn’t do anything to put out those fires on Friday night.
