When the Buffalo Bills face the Washington Redskins this Sunday at the Rogers Centre in Toronto, they'll be taking the field at their home away from home for the fourth time since 2008 - and trying to win their first game in the stadium.

Buffalo is 0-3 in regular season action since reaching a deal with Rogers Communications to play one game per year north of the border in 2008. That year, the Bills lost a 16-3 game to the Miami Dolphins in which J.P. Losman started, the Bills accumulated just 207 yards of offense, and the team fumbled five times and lost two turnovers. It was a brutal affair.

Their game in 2009 - a 19-13 loss to the New York Jets - was similarly brutal. The Jets ran for 249 yards in the contest, while Ryan Fitzpatrick (9-of-23 for 98 yards and an interception) and the Bills could only muster 221 yards of offense. They also turned the ball over two more times.

In 2010, however, the team was far more competitive, even though they still dropped a 22-19 decision to the Chicago Bears. Three more Bills turnovers were the chief reason for the loss, but Fitzpatrick (31-of-51, 299 yards) and the offense (345 yards) were much better than the Toronto norm.

The Bills have not, however, ever lost a pre-season game in Toronto, registering wins over Pittsburgh (2008) and Indianapolis (2010). Let's get these trends going the other way, Buffalo.
