ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Buffalo Bills receiver Stevie Johnson questions why a more experienced player wasn't targeted on the final offensive snap in a loss at New England last weekend.

And Johnson says rookie receiver T.J. Graham shouldn't be faulted for running the wrong route that led to quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick having his pass intercepted by Devin McCourty in the end zone with 23 seconds left of a 37-31 loss.

Johnson says Graham wound up running a play he had never attempted in practice. Graham had been the intended receiver but ran behind McCourty rather than in front of him.

Johnson says one of the team's more experienced receivers should have run the route.

He raised his concerns Tuesday as the Bills (3-6) prepare to host Miami (4-5) on Thursday night.
