"Through the first four games the number of big plays (15 yards or more) given up by Buffalo’s defense has numbered 39. That’s 15 percent of the total plays run against the Bills this season (260).That may not seem like much, but Buffalo has given up the fifth most "big run plays" (10 yards) allowing 15 thus far, and the fifth most "big pass plays" (25 yards) with 10, in the league.
