Buffalo Bills goal line brawl 'biggest ever'

The Buffalo Bills offense can’t seem to get the football past the opposing goal line, so it should come as no surprise that fisticuffs ensued when practice carried the team’s opposing units in that direction.

Starting center Eric Wood locked horns with a rookie defensive end, resulting in Wood losing his helmet and absorbing some punches from Johnson before teammates intervened.

The end of that brawl can be seen below, per Del Reid at Bills Mafia, and described in action by Tim Graham of The Buffalo News.

Frustrations are at a boiling point with Buffalo’s first string offense, which has failed to score a touchdown in three appearances this preseason.

Quarterback EJ Manuel is already under heavy criticism for his reticence to throw down field, but as always it’s hard to gauge how much preseason struggles stem from the capabilities of the offense as as opposed to the vanilla nature of the game planning that’s standard practice in the NFL.

Frustration is mounting with just under three weeks until the Bills start their regular season, but there’s no cause for any team to panic until they start losing games that count.

For now, Eric Wood and his teammates can take solace in knowing everyone will get along fine if the team can nab a win or two to start the season.
