Despite being eliminated from playoff contention, the team put forth their best performance of the season through the air. Tyrod Taylor had over 300 yards in a game for the first time in his career, and the Bills set a franchise record for most yards in a game with 589 yards.
Nobody was as consistent in the passing game as Charles Clay, hauling in eight catches for 85 yards and two touchdowns.
He also made two of the most important catches in the game.
Clay caught his first touchdown in the red zone down 28-14 in the third quarter. However, Clay’s biggest catch in a Bills uniform came on 4th-and-seven in the fourth quarter. With the Bills down to their last chance to take the lead, Clay had to go down to the turf to catch a sharp throw from Taylor in the front of the end zone. After being reviewed the play was upheld, and the Bills had their first lead of the afternoon.
We liked Clay as a free agent pickup off the wire this week for those in need at the position, and as a lower-end TE1 play. If your league has Week 17 games, Clay is someone to keep in mind as a player who is trending upward.
