SB Nation and Gillette have partnered to present a new content series here at Buffalo Rumblings in which, after every Buffalo Bills game, we examine the top five defensive plays of the day.

Naturally, given the way that the Bills have performed defensively of late, writing this type of post - let alone reading it - is a highly difficult and aggravating exercise. As such, we're asking for your help: we've got two obvious plays to list here. Write in the other three plays in the comments section, and we'll add it back into the post at the end of the day. Here we go!

No. 1: Drayton Florence picks off Mark Sanchez. With the game tied 7-7 in the second quarter, Sanchez threw an ill-advised pass out of his end zone intended for Santonio Holmes. Florence, trailing Holmes underneath the route, looked like the intended receiver. His pick set up the Bills at the Jets' 20-yard line, and three plays later, the Bills had a 14-7 lead.

No. 2: Justin Rogers breaks up a pass. Playing in his first extended action as a nominal member of the Bills' top nickel defense, Rogers saved a touchdown with a diving pass break-up on a throw intended for Patrick Turner. Sure, the Jets scored on the drive, but it felt like a huge play at the time - and it was certainly an excellent individual effort.

Your turn, folks. Give us three more.
