Bills stun Falcons with 23-17 win

Getty									Taylor Gabriel is one of the top free agents to target this week

The Atlanta Falcons found themselves in a dogfight with the Buffalo Bills on Sunday afternoon and their task became significantly more hard after their top two receivers, including Julio Jones, were announced out for the rest of the game early in the second half.

The Bills have largely held the Falcons in check, and Taylor's touchdown pass to Jordan Matthews has given Buffalo a 7-3 lead in the second quarter.

Tevin Coleman rushed nine times for 79 yards and caught 4-of-6 targets for 65 yards in Week 4 against Buffalo. Teammate Mohamed Sanu also didn't come back in the second half after suffering an injury to his hamstring.

The 6-3 wideout has had at least 1,400 receiving yards each of the last three seasons with 20 total touchdowns during that span.

Limited all week in practice with a back injury, Jones suited up and caught the first pass of the game from Matt Ryan.


It left Ryan with Taylor Gabriel and Justin Hardy as his top receivers, both of whom seemed overmatched.

The Bills are now 3-1 on the season and are off to their best start since 2011.

Jones left the game in the second quarter with a hip flexor injury. Right tackle Ryan Schraeder is still in concussion protocol and will be replaced once again Ty Sambrailo.

This coming week's bye gives the Falcons a chance to rest and recover.

It's no secret the Bills have been better than expected, but they've yet to face a team like the Falcons.
