Buffalo Bills now 5-2 after shutout win over Washington

A much-maligned Buffalo Bills defense recorded nine sacks, intercepted two John Beck passes, and pitched a shutout as the Bills beat the Washington Redskins 23-0 in Toronto on Sunday afternoon.

Coming into the game, the Bills' No. 30-ranked defense had recorded just four sacks; they more than tripled their season total on Sunday. Marcell Dareus recorded 2.5 sacks, Dwan Edwards had 1.5, and Spencer Johnson, Chris Kelsay, Kirk Morrison and Jairus Byrd all recorded full sacks as well. George Wilson and Byrd recorded interceptions as Beck and the Redskins looked overmatched all afternoon.

Offensively, Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 21-of-27 passes for 262 yards, and threw two touchdowns to tight end Scott Chandler, who now has six on the season. That ties a team record for tight ends shared by Pete Metzelaars and Jay Riemersma. Fred Jackson was his usual self, as well, rushing for 120 yards on 26 carries and adding 74 receiving yards on three receptions.

Buffalo improves to 5-2 on the season with the win. They return home to Ralph Wilson Stadium next week to take on the 4-3 New York Jets.
