ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. —
Bucs quarterback Josh Freeman also started and worked two possessions. He was sacked three times and completed only two of three passes before rookie Mike Glennon took over.
Amendola, signed as a free agent from St. Louis, caught six passes for 71 yards, including a 26-yard touchdown on the game’s first series.
49ers 15, Chiefs 13: Kansas City quarterback Alex Smith struggled against his former team, and backup San Francisco quarterback B.J. Daniels threw a late touchdown pass to lift the 49ers last the Chiefs.
Phil Dawson hit all three of his field-goal attempts for the 49ers (1-1), two of them 55-yarders, while the Chiefs’ Quintin Demps returned a kickoff 104 yards for a touchdown.
Saints 28, Raiders 20: Drew Brees passed for 202 yards and a touchdown while leading five scoring drives, and the New Orleans survived a sloppy second half to beat Oakland.
Brees’ scoring strike was a 16-yarder to rookie Kenny Stills, who made the most of his second straight game playing with the first-team offense. Brees completed 78 percent of his passes (14 of 18), including a 56-yarder to Nick Toon, setting up Mark Ingam’s 2-yard TD run.
