The Indianapolis Colts and Buffalo Bills defenses are poised to maintain their reputation as two of the best in the league, as they made both teams' offenses look bad in a win of 27-24 against the Bills, Saturday, at Highmark Stadium.
In the victory, the Bills had an interception at the expense of Nick Foles, in addition to causing a fumble by managing a sack from the quarter and recover it, before returning it 69 yards out for a major.
Raheem Blackshear had the other two majors on Victory Day, each time following a carry.
For its part, the Colts defense had three interceptions in total, including two against Case Keenum, in addition to recovering two fumbles, including one after having managed a quarterback sack against the same Keenum.
Acquired from the Atlanta Falcons last offseason, Matt Ryan was able to shake off the rust by making six of his 10 relay, for 58 yards. The team's other center, Sam Ehlinger, chosen in the sixth round (218th overall) of the most recent draft, showed some good things by finding a receiver 10 times on 11 attempts, including twice for a major, crossing 88 total yards.
