Following his own advice and mantra, Handle Business-Have Fun, Stevie Johnson helped the Buffalo Bills win their first game of the 2013 season over the Carolina Panthers, 24-23. Catching the winning touchdown pass from quarterback E.J. Manuel with 2 seconds left on the clock, took care of the “Handle Business” part. Helping Doug Marrone to his first NFL victory as new head coach and relying on a stingy defense, led by Mario Williams’ 4.5 sacks, to keep them in the game, E.J. Manuel guided the Bill’s winning drive 80 yards with no timeouts and about a minute on the clock. Hopefully, this victory can give the Bills a big boost of confidence by learning how to win a game with their backs against the wall. Stevie also admitted to feeling especially happy catching that winning pass being wide open in the end zone. “I’ve been chasing that play since Pittsburgh”. Stevie dropped an overtime, game winning pass, in 2010 against Pittsburgh and it has haunted him ever since. Now that Stevie has made that game winning catch, he can put that drop behind him and look forward to helping this team to many more wins. Stevie, E.J., Marrone and his staff and all their teammates, plus all us Bills Fans can now “Have Fun” this week as we savior this great victory and get ready to play the New York Jets next week.
