Democrat and Chronicle R1E2 Sunday,October18,2015 PROBLEMS PILING UP AS SEAHAWKS SPUTTER PAGE 10D ORCHARD PARK – Now we’ve come to the part of the program where the Buffalo Bills fabulously athletic, pull-a-rabbit- f rom-a-hat running quarterback is injured. Wow, that didn’t take long. T yrod Taylor has a sore left ankle, a sprained left knee and I’m sure an assort- m ent of other aches and pains that neither he nor the team is talking about. What also isn’t being talked about – well, at least not without coach Rex Ryan s quirming in his shoes and his nose growing – is the bizarre, head-scratching way the Bills’ depth chart at the game’s most important position has come to pass. Or r un? Taylor, five career starts . . . EJ Manuel, 14 career s tarts . . . Newly signed free agent Josh Johnson, five career starts. The Bills spent lavishly on a mansion, building a team they believe can challenge for a championship and end a 15-year playoff drought. Then they canceled their home owners insurance. Taylor, who seems to be showing remarkable powers of healing, is listed as a game-time decision Sunday w hen the Bills (3-2) host the Cincinnati Bengals (5-0), whose defense eats nails and spits fire as well or better JAMIE GERMANO/@JGERMANO1/STAFF PHOTOGRAPHER EJ Manuelis expected to start at quarterback Sunday for the Buffalo Billsin place of the injured Tyrod Taylor.

It’s a lot like taking an incomplete in a class after spending the semester in the classroom. What was the p oint? But for the Rochester Institute of Technology men’s hockey team, Saturday’s 2-2 tie with Bowling G reen was perhaps a bit more tolerable. Bowling Green came into night ranked 10th in the c ountry. The Tigers, meanwhile, were trying to find something to feel good about after a pair of distressing losses last weekend. In that regard, it was mission accomplished. “Now we have some more belief in ourselves,” RIT coach Wayne Wilson said. “We can say, ‘That’s what a 10th-ranked team looks like.’” T hey also will say they should have won Saturday’s game. The Tigers led for 50 minutes and 44 seconds, as HOCKEY SeeRIT,Page6D ADRIAN KRAUS RIT's Alex Perron-Fontaine and Bowling Green's Brent Tate battle for the puck along the boards during regular season game played at the Blue Cross Arena on Saturday. RIT finds solace i n 2-2 tie with Bowling Green KEVIN OKLOBZIJA @KEVINODANDC The showdown Saturday night between high school football powers in New York state, turned into a knockdown. Aquinas ran, passed and picked its way over Buffalo Canisius, 42-14. I t was senior night for the Aquinas football team, and it was players in that class who led the Little Irish (7-0), No. 3 in the New York State Sportswriters Association Class AA state rankings, past the No. 1Crusad- ers (6-1). Taylor Riggins scored three touchdowns, as he ran for 144 yards on just 15 carries. Earnest Edwards finished with three touchdowns, including an interception return of 82 yards on the second Canisius possess ion of the second half. Two of Edwards touchdowns came on passes of nine and 51yards from quarterback J ake Zembiec, a senior headed to Penn State.. Zembiec was 11of 17 passing for 199 yards, including his touchdown throws to Edwards. The offensive players were not the only seniors to s hine for Aquinas. Defensive back Shemar Hayes intercepted three passes, one of five picks by the Little Irish. Edwards had the other two.
