Much has been made about the Buffalo Bills being 'cardiac kids' over the last two weeks, thanks solely to two huge come-from-behind victories at Ralph Wilson Stadium. In Week 2, the Bills got down 21-3 to the Oakland Raiders, but came back and won 38-35. Then, a week later, the New England Patriots stormed out to a 21-0 lead, only to watch the Bills storm back again and steal a 34-31 win.

This week's Bills opponent, the Cincinnati Bengals, knows all too well that Buffalo's first big comeback win under Chan Gailey came at their expense during the 2010 season.

In Week 11 at Paul Brown Stadium, the Bills and Bengals exchanged scores to open the game 7-7, but then Cincinnati exploded for three straight touchdowns to open up a 28-7 first-half lead. Buffalo gained a little momentum back before halftime, but still trailed 31-14 at the break.

Then Ryan Fitzpatrick, Stevie Johnson and crew took over. Buffalo scored 35 straight points in the second half to close out a huge 49-31 win; from their initial deficit of 28-7, the team went on a 42-3 run. Comebacks are nothing new for the Bills; they were already at it in year one under Gailey.
