The Bills victory over the New York Jets barely moved the needle. McDermott was Panthers defensive coordinator for the previous six seasons before taking over as head coach of the Bills earlier this year. Taylor now has 6,291 passing yards. That ended on a failed fourth-and-1 conversion from the Panthers 44.
Olsen left in the second quarter with a foot injury and did not return and the team later re-Tweeted a quote from Olsen saying he broke his foot. Running backs LeSean McCoy and Mike Tolbert combined for just 14 yards on 15 carries.
Friendly bounce: Stephen Hauschaka scored the Bills' only points, banking a 45-yard field goal in off the right upright.
But after some anxious moments on the Bills' final drive, with the crowd chanting "Keep Pounding", Buffalo's Zay Jones dropped a very catchable ball inside the Panthers 5 on a 4th-and-11 from the Carolina 33 with 0:09 to go.

Carolina opened the scoring on Gano's 34-yard field goal to conclude the game's first possession.
Panthers kicker Graham Gano made field goals of 34, 28 and 20 yards, the last of which gave Carolina a 9-3 lead with 2:38 to play. Panthers C Ryan Kalil (sore neck) did not play and was replaced Tyler Larsen.
Olsen caught two passes for eight yards in Carolina's season opener. Losing LT Cordy Glenn to an ankle injury didn't help, while McCoy appeared to tweak his troublesome wrist in the second half.
Buffalo will host Denver next Sunday. The Panthers face the visiting New Orleans Saints next week.
