The Buffalo Bills hosted the Indianapolis Colts for their first of three preseason games on Saturday afternoon. Many of Buffalo’s starters had the day off, so several rookies and younger players headlined the day.
It was Keenum’s first game as a Bill, which was the same for many others on offense. The group struggled to get things going early and committed four turnovers in the first half, but fortunately found a way to turn it around in the second half.
Keenum and the offense did a good job of moving the ball down the field during their first drive but couldn’t capitalize in the red zone and came up short on 4th and 4. Running back Zack Moss picked up 39 yards on the ground and wide receiver Khalil Shakir accounted for 30 receiving yards during that drive.
“It is preseason so you need to take it with a grain of salt knowing that it’s not quite as game planned of a call sheet that we normally have,” Keenum shared. “I thought we did some good things and there’s a lot of stuff to work on and get better at as well.”
