After a dominant win against the then undefeated New England Patriots, the Buffalo Bills (2-2 before the game) looked to continue their success as they traveled across the country to clash with the 3-1 Los Angeles Rams.

Buffalo went into the game on a two-game winning streak and looked to keep their success going.

After the Rams drove down to kick a field goal on their first drive, quarterback Tyrod Taylor took the Bills down the field and scored a touchdown to put the Bills up 7-3.

Then the Bills defense came up big, and forced and recovered a fumble. The offense didn’t take long to make the Rams pay, as they quickly scored, but Dan Carpenter’s kick for the extra point was blocked.

Up 13-3, the Bills started to “slack off” a little bit as they let Los Angeles put up 10 points to tie the game right before the half.

The Rams left too much time on the clock though, as the Bills drove down and kicked a field goal to go up 16-13 at the half.

In the second half, the Bills offense really struggled to do anything as the Rams tied the game at 16-16 with a field goal and then got the ball back.

Then, with three minutes left in the third quarter, cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman intercepted the ball and ran it 41 yards down the field for the touchdown.

With the 23-16 lead, Buffalo never looked back from there as they forced another interception later in the fourth quarter and scored one last touchdown to win the game 30-19 in a great matchup.

The Bills moved to 3-2 and are enjoying a three-game winning streak, a record that no one thought this team would have after they started 0-2.

Buffalo will look to extend their winning streak to four as they come back home to face their third NFC team of the year, the 1-4 San Francisco 49ers.

Sunday will feature a good game, as these next two games will show what the Bills are as they play two 1-4 teams.

This doesn’t mean they can take it lightly. I think the 49ers will come out to an early lead on the Bills, but as Bills fans, we can’t get discouraged. Another great showing by the defense will get us back into the game.

I predict that Tyrod Taylor will throw for a game-winning touchdown late in the contest for a 31-28 victory. GO BILLS!!!
