Lions kicker Alex Henery, who replaced previous Lions kicker Nate Freese roughly two weeks ago, will probably not be a Lions kicker for much longer. He missed all three of his field goal attempts today, keeping the game in reach. Kyle Orton and the Bills took advantage of that opportunity with 11 points in the fourth quarter to win the Jim Schwartz Bowl. (That's what this was, right?)


It wasn't all Henery's fault. Matthew Stafford wasn't anything special today, and the offense got worse after Calvin Johnson left the game with an ankle injury. After Henery couldn't convert the 50-yard attempt, Buffalo's Sammy Watkins juggled in a catch for 20 yards, and Dan Carpenter nailed a 58-yarder for the win with nine seconds left. Detroit should look for a kicker like him.
