Levy Accuses Jets of Feigning Injuries

Associated Press

Marv Levy, coach of the Buffalo Bills, accused the New York Jets on Monday of feigning injuries to slow the Bills’ no-huddle offense.

Levy said the tactic backfired Sunday, allowing two Bills, Thurman Thomas and James Lofton, to recover from injuries.

“One of their guys (Darrell Davis) took a dive and stayed down for a long time and during that period of time, both Thurman and James--who we thought were going to be out for a while--felt better and we sent them in.

“And on the next down, James caught the fourth-down pass that kept the drive going. Two plays later, Thurman caught the winning touchdown pass.” The Bills won, 23-20.
