The Buffalo Bills pulled off an improbable win today, 23-20 over the Baltimore Ravens.

The Buffalo Bills forced the Baltimore Ravens to shut down their running game and earned a 23-20 win in the process. In doing so, the Bills gained their first win in 17 years over a reigning Super Bowl champion.

Kiko Alonso had two interceptions of Joe Flacco as the quarterback had an awful day against the Bills defense, throwing five interceptions total. Aaron Williams had himself a day at cornerback in a great effort for the Buffalo defense, reeling in two interceptions himself, and Flacco was spilled for sacks four separate times - twice by Marcell Dareus.

Red zone woes continued on offense, but Buffalo pulled it out with touchdowns from Fred Jackson and Robert Woods. Dan Carpenter added three field goals for the other nine points. C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson both left the game with injuries, but returned later.

The Bills won't get 24 hours to enjoy their victory as they play Thursday night against the suddenly hot Cleveland Browns who have won their last two games. Both teams enter that contest at 2-2, and we'll begin our coverage of that game in earnest tomorrow morning. Until then, enjoy an unexpected win!
