Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor is up by Vladimir Ducasse after being shaken up after a tough hit by Saints Alex Okafor.

ORCHARD PARK – The Bills have made a big deal out of “Defending their dirt” which is the little catchphrase Sean McDermott came up with to remind the team that winning at home is imperative.

Sunday, the Bills defended nothing, and got their faces rubbed in the dirt – or, more accurately, the crushed rubber pellets in the artificial turf – by the prolific New Orleans Saints.

Maybe the Bills are coming to realize that the big man in the middle was more valuable than they thought.

Do you think the Saints cared when they had a 47-3 lead at the time? Peterman’s time to play may come in December if the Bills are out of the race, but for now, Taylor is the quarterback, as he should be.

The Saints were down 3-0 in the first quarter and had fourth-and-1 at the Bills’ 30.

Mark Ingram plowed up the middle for 25 yards, and the day fell apart from t for the Bills.

Lost in the Saints’ manhandling of the Bills on the ground was Thomas who caught nine passes for 117 yards.

Everyone came to see No. 13 for the Bills, Kelvin Benjamin, but the Saints’ No. 13, Thomas, badly outplayed him.
