The Buffalo Bills are back into a first place tie with the Patriots in the AFC East.  The Patriots lost at Pittsburgh while the Bills rolled to a 23-nothing shutout win over the Washington Redskins in Toronto.  It’s the first time Redskins coach Mike Shanahan has ever been shutout as an NFL coach.

The Bills dominated on both sides of the ball – especially the defense.  The Bills came into the game with
only four sacks for the season, but the nine they got against the Redskins more than tripled their output. Rookie defensive lineman Marcell Dareus led the way with 2 ½.   The Bills picked off a pair of passes and
allowed the Redskins only 174 yards in total offense.

Tight end Chris Chandler caught a pair of touchdown passes and Freddy Jackson ran for 120 yards and added 74 receiving yards.

Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, fresh off the $59.5-million contract extension he signed on Friday threw for 262
yards and the two touchdowns.

The Bills host the New York Jets at Wilson Stadium next Sunday.
