Bills 40, Broncos 14: Merry Christmas, Bills (And Chiefs) Fans!

'Tis the season for unabashed happiness, and the Buffalo Bills miraculously and surprisingly provided more reason to celebrate by absolutely throttling the Denver Broncos today, winning by a final of 40-14.

Leodis McKelvin returned a punt 80 yards for a touchdown. Jairus Byrd and Spencer Johnson - yes, Spencer Johnson - returned Tim Tebow interceptions for touchdowns. C.J. Spiller was brilliant for the third time in four games, scoring a touchdown and amassing 138 total yards from scrimmage on just 18 touches (including his first career 100-yard rushing game).

Aside from Denver's opening possession of each half (which both resulted in touchdowns, Buffalo's defense was dominant. The Broncos rushed roughly half of the 250 yards they put up against New England in a losing effort a week ago - and Tebow was picked off four times. Chris Kelsay had the game of his life. Chris Kelsay had the game of his life, finishing with six tackles and two sacks.

Buffalo's win moves them to 6-9 on the season - and while it hurts their draft position (cue the pouting), who cares? Again: 'tis the season for joy and merriment, and today was joyful and merry. It'd been too long since we've had fun watching Bills football.

Take the day off tomorrow, folks - we sure are. Enjoy your holiday, if you so celebrate, and we'll see you back here bright and early Monday morning. Go Bills!
