DENVER - The Bills held Peyton Manning to 173 yards passing, forced him into two interceptions, even put a halt to his 51-game streak with a touchdown throw. Kirk Hinrich Hawks Jersey . Heck, Kyle Orton, the former Broncos quarterback who lost his job to Tim Tebow, more than doubled
Manning in yards.If only Buffalo had kept those other numbers down — penalties,
its own turnovers and missed opportunities — this wouldve been a day to
remember. Instead, Orton and the Bills managed a field goal and a couple
desperation touchdowns and fell 24-17 to the Broncos on Sunday.The defeat hurt
them in the wild-card chase and hurt doubly because they slowed down Manning but
squandered the opportunity.There were no surprises, Bills running back Fred
Jackson said. We watched them on film all week. We knew what they were capable
of doing. When you want to beat a good team, you cant have those penalties,
those turnovers. Thats something were well aware of.The Bills (7-6), now in a
five-way tie, one game behind the last wild-card teams, had three turnovers.But
it was the penalties that hurt the most. They committed 11 for 98 yards. Two of
them nullified interception returns of 60 and 48 yards that wouldve set them up
nicely in Denver territory. The second, a 15-yarder on Corey Graham, wiped out
most of Stephon Gilmores return, which would have given the Bills the ball on
Denvers 35 midway through the third quarter with Buffalo trailing 21-3.Broncos
centre Will Montgomery dived at Grahams knees while Graham was blocking during
the return.Oh, it was a killer, Graham said. For me, it was a killer, too. The
guy cut me when Im trying to block him. They dont call that, though. But they
call me for retaliating.This marked the first time Manning has been held without
a touchdown pass since Nov. 14, 2010, meaning Drew Brees will hang onto the
record for at least a couple more years.It also marked the first time since last
November in New England that Manning has been held under 200 yards passing. He
finished 14 for 20 with a pedestrian passer rating of 56.9. And even though the
Bills went without a sack for the first time this season, they kept the Broncos
from making backbreaking plays. Mannings biggest completion was a 38-yarder to
Wes Welker.All of which should have lessened the pressure on Orton, the
journeyman who beat the Broncos 7-3 when he returned with Kansas City to close
the 2011 season, only months after he was benched for Tebow, then traded
away.Orton had 355 yards, most of them after the Bills had fallen behind by
three touchdowns in the third quarter. Like Manning, he threw two interceptions.
The first came after hed moved the Bills inside the Denver 20 midway through the
third quarter, down by 18, when there was still enough time to mount a
legitimate comeback.Not good enough to beat a good football team, Orton said
when asked how he felt he played.From a pure yardage standpoint, the Bills
defence got more than a passing grade, holding Denvers newest threat on offence,
C.J. Anderson, to 58 yards on 21 carries and holding the entire Broncos offence
to 306 yards, its lowest output of the season.Still, Anderson scored all three
of Denvers touchdowns. And Buffalo couldnt stop his backup; Juwan Thompson
carried it four times for 63 yards, including a 47-yard gain that set up Denvers
third touchdown.Those things hurt. The penalties hurt worse.Jerry Hughes, a key
to Buffalos recent success on defence, got hit with an unsportsmanlike-conduct
penalty in the second quarter and spent virtually the rest of the game on the
sideline.Coach Doug Marrone, who blamed himself for setting a bad example with a
couple emotional outbursts on the sideline, said Hughes initially was pulled to
calm him down, but said he wasnt aware the fifth-year lineman had barely played
after that.Asked about the penalty, Hughes said he didnt remember what happened.
But he took responsibility for a play that defined the day for Buffalo.It was
self-inflicted, he said. We have to play better, plain and simple.Notes:
Buffalos only injury was to S DaNorris Searcy (hamstring). ... Jackson caught 10
passes for 37 yards and ran for 35. ... The Bills still need one more win for
their first eight-win season since 2004. Next up: The Packers at home.___AP NFL

advantage ahead of next weeks quarterfinal return leg in Germany. But it came at
a price as the Portugal forward, who came into the first-leg nursing a sore left

over the Phillies. TORONTO -- Toronto Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista will
likely miss a few days with a mild hamstring strain but is not expected to go on
the disabled list. The all-star right-fielder had an MRI exam done Monday after
leaving Sundays game in Cincinnati. "Its definitely some of the best news I
could have gotten," Bautista said. "I could have got the news of a torn
hamstring or a higher-grade strain. But its the lowest grade strain that there
could be -- grade one -- so its day by day." Bautista said theres a "really good
chance" he wont have to go on the DL and added he might even be able to return
during Torontos three-game series against the New York Yankees, which began
Monday night at Rogers Centre. "Im not saying a start but a pinch-hit at-bat
here or there, thats a possibility," he said. The Blue Jays have led the
American League East standings for the last month but they won just three games
on their recent 10-game road trip. Entering play Monday, Toronto had a 1
1/2-game lead on New York and the Baltimore Orioles. Toronto lost another key
player over the weekend as infielder Brett Lawrie of Langley, B.C., will miss
three to six weeks with a fractured right index finger. The Blue Jays placed him
on the 15-day DL on Monday and recalled outfielders Anthony Gose and
Kevin Pillar from triple-A Buffalo. "We need the two extra outfielders to cover
while Jose is out," said Blue Jays manager John Gibbons. "When he comes back, I
dont necessarily think we need two. But for the time being, we do." "Its an
opportunity for somebody," Gibbons added. "Thats what it comes down to." Lawrie
is batting .244 this season with 12 homers and 38 RBIs. The Blue Jays also
optioned catcher Erik Kratz to the Bisons on Monday. Bautista is enjoying
another strong season with a .305 average, 15 home runs and 49 RBIs in 77 games.
His defensive play has been excellent and he leads all major-league players in
fan voting for the July 15 all-star game in Minnesota. He suffered the injury
while trying to leg out a single in the Blue Jays 4-3 loss to the Reds. "I was
running down to first and I extended my leg to step on the bag and I justt felt
a little sharp pain," Bautista said. Swingman Spud Webb Jersey. "The usual feeling when you strain a muscle. Ive been there before so I knew what was going on. I
had a good idea at least. I just didnt know how bad it was. "I knew I could have
made it worse by staying in the game so I came out." Gibbons was unable to
provide a specific return date but was relieved it didnt appear to be a serious
injury. "Hopefully just a couple days," he said. "Well see." The Blue Jays
opened June with five straight wins but have gone 4-11 since, entering the
series opener against the Yankees. The timing of the injuries and the recent
slide have not helped ease concerns from a jittery fanbase that the teams rare
first-place run could soon come to an end, especially with New York and
Baltimore now so close in the standings. "I dont think it should be blown out of
proportion," Bautista said. "I think we have capable guys that can fill in on a
short-term basis and hopefully do a great job. "Certainly the other guys that
are in the lineup that are still regulars, they are plenty good to carry the
offence and the team on the field. So I wouldnt blow it out of proportion." At
the end of his five-minute pre-game availability, Bautista was asked what hed
say to the portion of the fanbase who believes the teams strong play last month
was an aberration, and that the results from the last two weeks are more the
expected norm. "Well good for them," he said. "I dont have to defend ourselves.
If they want to root for the Yankees or the Red Sox, be my guest. They shouldnt
be Jays fans if thats how they feel. Thats my opinion." Torontos lineup card for
the opener of the three-game series against the Yankees had a different look.
Designated hitter Adam Lind moved into Bautistas No. 3 slot, batting behind
shortstop Jose Reyes and left-fielder Melky Cabrera. First baseman
Edwin Encarnacion remained in the cleanup spot and centre-fielder Colby Rasmus
batted fifth and catcher Dioner Navarro was in the No. 6 spot. Third baseman
Juan Francisco batted seventh, ahead of second baseman Munenori Kawasaki and
