Bills 14, Panthers 10: Second half live chat

Come chat with us as the roster battles play out in the second half. The Buffalo Bills didn't quite hit on all cylinders in the first half but they were fun to watch.

Matt Cassel led one trip to the red zone on two efficient drives with the first team offense but a badly shanked Jordan Gay field goal opportunity meant zero points. The starting defense allowed 1 play over 2 yards, forcing 2 punts on...
