Woods followed a fine season opener in which he caught four passes for 78 yards with a one-catch performance against Miami in Week 2.
With Sammy Watkins starring in Week 2 against the Dolphins, there wasn't much room for
Williams and Woods were both targeted three times in the game, and both brought in just one pass. Woods had 5 yards in the game, while Williams' lone reception went for just 3 yards.
Both players will look for more success in Week 3, when they take on the Chargers.
Woods played well this preseason, racking up 15 catches for 204 yards and a touchdown, and he was able to carry his quality play over into the team's upset win over the Bears. His day included an acrobatic 25-yard catch on second-and-long in the fourth quarter to put his team in the red zone in advance of a field goal, which represented Buffalo's only second-half points.
Woods has the potential hold off Mike Williams as the second receiver in the Buffalo offense this season. His next test comes next Sunday against the Dolphins.
Woods came down with a 30-yard reception early in the second quarter. On that same drive, EJ Manuel found him for a 16-yard completion. Woods played the first half and was targeted six times and finished with three receptions for 49 yards.
If Watkins misses any time moving forward with a rib injury, the Bills will look to Woods as one of Manuel's primary targets.
Williams was limited to one catch for a gain of 28 yards, which came during the third series of offense. Woods played the first half and finished as the team's second-leading receiver with four catches for 31 yards on eight targets.
