Revisiting Friday night's win over Minnesota by highlighting those Buffalo Bills players whose performance was "up," and those who fell into the opposite end of the spectrum:
Chris Hogan: Continues to show up on offense, targeted a team-high seven times and finishing with a game-high four catches. Is docked, however, for a face-mask penalty early in the first quarter.
EJ Manuel: Enters the game at the start of the second half and leads the Bills on an 80-yard touchdown drive. Isn't spectacular, but continues to avoid making critical mistakes.
Garrison Sanborn: Long snapper -- yes, the long snapper -- has two special-teams tackles (both on punts).
Robert Woods: Has a key 22-yard catch on a scoring drive late in the first half, and adds a 34-yard punt return in the second quarter.
Colin Brown: Starts at left guard for a second straight game, but commits costly holding penalty in the red zone late in the first half.
Kevin Kolb: Has his first chance to outplay Manuel in a game, and finishes with a 55.9 quarterback rating, including an interception.
Nickell Robey: Undrafted rookie starts at cornerback but is flagged for defensive pass interference to extend a Vikings scoring drive in the first quarter, and is penalized for being offside in the second quarter.
