CHICAGO (AP) — AJ McCarron made a shaky case for a roster spot Chris Lindstrom Jersey , leading a surge in the fourth quarter after struggling for most of the game, and the Buffalo Bills closed the preseason with a 28-27 victory over the Chicago Bears on Thursday night.and few key reserves playing, the focus was on McCarron.He ran for a touchdown and threw for three more in the fourth — including a 6-yarder to Keith Towbridge in the closing minute. That capped an 84-yard drive that was aided by two roughing-the-passer calls, including one against Isaiah Irving on a fourth down at the Buffalo 3.McCarron was 13 of 34 for 156 yards and had an interception returned for a touchdown in the early going. He could be the odd man out if the Bills decide to go with two quarterbacks rather than three.Tyler Bray made a case for the Bears to keep three quarterbacks. With Mitchell Trubisky and backup Chase Daniel not playing, Bray was 19 of 29 for 180 yards and an interception. Ryan Nall ran for 79 yards, including a 32-yard touchdown.Signed to a two-year deal in free agency after spending the past four seasons as Andy Dalton’s backup in Cincinnati, McCarron was considered the initial front-runner for the Bills’ starting job because he had more experience than first-round pick Josh Allen and returning backup Nathan Peterman.But he missed a little over a week after he bruised his right shoulder while being hit several times at Cleveland on Aug. 17. That injury along with his performance seemed to knock him out of the running for the starting job. It also raised questions about whether he will make the opening roster.McCarron got off to a brutal start, throwing for just 39 yards and getting picked off twice in the first half.His troubles really began after Cody Parkey kicked a 47-yard field goal on Chicago’s first possession.Moments later, McCarron threw a pass right to the Bears’ Doran Grant along the sideline http://www.atlantafalconsteamonline.com/kaleb-mcgary-jersey , resulting in a 33-yard touchdown return. And just like that, it was 10-0.Parkey added a 23-yard field goal midway through the second quarter. Nall made it 20-0 with just under two minutes left in the half with his 32-yard TD run up the right sideline, though the Bears missed another opportunity in the closing seconds after McCarron got picked off again.Chicago’s Abdullah Anderson tipped a pass at the line, leading to an interception for John Timu. But Parkey’s 39-yard attempt hit the right upright.NATIONAL ANTHEMThere were no protests by either team during the anthem.INJURIESBills: RT Conor McDermott walked gingerly toward the sideline after a 10-yard scramble by McCarron in the third. He returned later in the quarter at left tackle.Bears: TE Daniel Brown suffered a shoulder injury on a 27-yard catch in the third and left the game. … LB Kasim Edebali was helped off the field and taken from the sideline on a cart with an apparent leg injury after a run by Buffalo on the first play of the fourth quarter.NEXT UPBills: Open season at Baltimore on Sept. 9.Bears: Open season at Green Bay on Sept. 9. OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — The Baltimore Ravens are receiving a crash course this week from first-year offensive coordinator Greg Roman, who’s rewritten the playbook to accommodate the peculiar talent of quarterback Lamar Jackson.Roman hopes the lessons learned during the team’s mandatory three-game minicamp will enable the offense to perform comfortably and efficiently at training camp next month.“Generally, the guys have done just a really good job of picking this up quick,” Roman said Wednesday. “We’ve got to keep grinding, keep trying to mine for gold as far as technique and being precise.”The process began in January Kendall Sheffield Jersey , soon after Roman was promoted from assistant head coach/tight end coach to replace fired offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg. Coach John Harbaugh made the switch in part because Roman put together a very effective offense for quarterback Colin Kaepernick in San Francisco during the 2012 season.Jackson, like Kaepernick, has the footspeed and elusiveness to make things happen even when he’s not throwing the ball. After taking over for Joe Flacco as a rookie last season, Jackson rushed for 556 yards in a run-heavy offense, propelling Baltimore to a 6-1 finish and a berth in the playoffs as AFC North champions.Soon after the Ravens lost to the Chargers in the opening round, Roman ripped up the playbook and started anew.“We had to go back and look at everything from the ground up,” Roman said. “We looked at where we are and the vision we have for ourselves. We really kind of started from square one — how we call everything, the terminology we use, and how can we best utilize Lamar and the entire offense’s abilities?”A playbook designed for a drop-back passer like Flacco just wasn’t going to work for Jackson http://www.atlantafalconsteamonline.com/john-cominsky-jersey , who’s quick out of the pocket and almost perfect for the run-pass option. Although Roman began a complete overhaul after the postseason, the seeds of change began almost as soon as Jackson got his first start in November.So it’s not as if the Ravens are being asked to learn a new language.“It’s kind of a revamped version of what we did last year,” left tackle Ronnie Stanley said. “It’s been kind of an easier transition, because we’re kind of going off how we ended last year.”Jackson and backup quarterback Robert Griffin III were both victimized by interceptions during Wednesday’s practice, but the results are insignificant at this juncture. Everyone’s wearing shorts, no one has pads, so it’s pretty obvious that the offense is going to pass.“When we move into training camp, there will be more emphasis on the running game,” Roman said.What matters this week is that the offense moves closer to absorbing the new playbook.“You can’t work the whole offense in three days Qadree Ollison Jersey , but we want to look like we know what we’re doing,” Harbaugh said. “It’s a new offense with, really, a new cast of characters — including Lamar, because it’s new for him, too.”So, what can Ravens fans expect from the new-look offense?“You’ll see some new stuff, some new stuff that looks like old stuff,” Roman said.Almost all of it Brian Burns Jersey , however, will happen in up-tempo fashion.“We’re looking for quicker communication, the ability to play quicker at the line of scrimmage,” Roman said. “We can play slow, but we wanted to be able to really delve in to making things as streamlined as we could.”
