The Buffalo Bills had a lot of players making plays in yesterday’s win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

But as Sean McDermott says, it’s a “underdog mentality.”

Here are some “underdog” players that made big plays on this game.

Deonte Thompson 

4 catches, 107yards. When he was signed last Tuesday, many fans said, “who?” He made a big impact yesterday. He made his speed known to all, in flat routes and on the 44 yard catch in the 4th quarter. His speed creates separation and a nice throw by Tyrod.  

Logan Thomas 

His one catch of the day was a 22 yard touchdown catch thrown by Tyrod Taylor. Of course it’s just not about catching the ball for tight ends. He made some key blocks in the running game and found himself open on a couple routes. He has transition from a quarterback to a wide receiver. And he still has room to grow.

Matt Milano

Congrats to the rookie on his 1st interception on his career. He’s a pleasant surprise taking the place of the injured Ramon Humber. Milano has made plays since coming on against Atlanta. He can cover well as he did yesterday. I see the rookie only getting better. 

Taiwan Jones

He’s been playing strong all season, but made the play of the game yesterday. Coming out of the 2 minute warning in the 4th quarter, Jones caught a flip pass on a 3rd and 9 for 11 yards. That was huge. If the first down wasn’t made, the Bills would have had to kick the field goal there, leaving time for the Bucs to tie or possibly win the game with one timeout to spare. 

Ryan Davis

He made the first Buffalo turnover happen with a forced fumble sack. He has been in the defensive line rotations, especially against the run.
