The Bills have a formula for success

The Buffalo Bills returned to a successful formula to beat the Tennessee Titans for their second win of the season. The Bills’ defense attacked the ball all day and forced the Titans to turn it over three times. They caused the same number of turnovers in their first win of the season over the Minnesota Vikings.

These turnovers gave the offense short fields and situations where they could capitalize. Two of the three turnovers resulted in points for the Bills. The only turnover that did not result in points was due to the Corey Bojorquez fake field goal attempt. The points the Bills scored off of turnovers were also the only points scored until the clock expired in the fourth quarter. Stephen Hauschka’s walk-off game-winning field goal was the only score that did not come as a result of a turnover by the Titans.

Turnovers are a hard thing to rely on week-to-week and season-to-season, but if the Bills can make this a reoccurring situation then it will result in more wins. Since 2000, teams in the NFL that have caused three turnovers have won nearly 80% of their games.
