ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -- The Buffalo Bills' victory was well in hand when Drew Bledsoe and Lawyer Milloy -- the two Pro Bowl players in the middle of this captivating drama -- shared a few words on the sideline Sunday."We were talking about what you probably think we were talking about," Bledsoe said with a wink. "We were both pretty happy with the win."Try ecstatic.Bledsoe and Milloy combined to stick it their former team, the New England Patriots, sparking the Bills to a dominating 31-0 victory in their opener.
The Bills improved drastically with the addition of Takeo Spikes to the defense but the late pickup of Lawyer Milloy is the missing piece for this team. Milloy brings great talent on the field and great leadership off the field. This was a great pickup for them and maybe the difference in a tough division.
How long will the release of Milloy be a distraction?
Eric Allen played cornerback for 14 NFL seasons with the Eagles, Saints and Raiders.
