For the first time since 2011, the Bills have won three straight games, defeating the Rams in LA 30-19 on Sunday.

After an 0-2 start to the season, Buffalo is now 3-2 while Los Angeles falls to 3-2 on the year.

Trailing 23-16 late in the fourth quarter, Rams Head Coach Jeff Fisher dialed up a fake punt, which the Bills stopped setting them up on LA's 25 yard line.

After a 24-yard run by LeSean McCoy, Tyrod Taylor connected with Marquise Goodwin to extend Buffalo’s lead to 11 and secure the win.

With three of LA’s four starting defensive lineman sitting out, McCoy ran 18 times for 150 yards.

Taylor still struggled throwing the ball, but did connect with new receiver Justin Hunter for a touchdown in the first quarter.  Taylor escaped pressure and delivered a strike in the back corner of the end zone to give the Bills a 7-3 lead in the first quarter.

Activated on Wednesday following his four game suspension, Pro-Bowl defensive tackle Marcell Dareus did not play due to a hamstring injury he suffered in practice on Friday.

Buffalo’s defense continued to work smoothly without Dareus, sacking Case Keenum four times.  The Bills also stood tall in the redzone, holding the Rams to three field goals in four of their trips inside the 20.

Former USC Trojan Nickell Robey-Coleman had two interceptions for the Bills, returning one for a touchdown to give Buffalo a 23-16 lead in the third quarter.

Buffalo returns home to host the San Francisco 49ers on Oct. 16 at New Era Field.
