Bills 45, 49ers 16

McCoy keeps rocking, Bills roll

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — Guard Richie Incognito knew LeSean McCoy's right knee was fine when the Bills running back was already gabbing in Buffalo's locker room during halftime.

"As long as Shady's talking, he's fine," Incognito said.

If knocking knees with linebacker Nick Bellore in the first half couldn't slow the player nicknamed "Shady," what shot did the porous 49ers run defense have?

McCoy had 140 yards rushing and matched a career high by scoring three times, and the Bills extended their winning streak to four by routing San Francisco and new starter Colin Kaepernick.

"I thought he was okay," coach Chip Kelly said of Kaepernick, whom he promoted over Blaine Gabbert. "But overall, offensively as a group, we need to run the ball better and we need to be better at the passing game."

Kelly wouldn't commit to who will start next week when the Bucs visit San Francisco.

"Yeah, we'll see," he said.
