The Bills had 175 rush yards before contact Sunday, the most by any team in a game this season and more than the Bills had in their first two games of the season combined (114). It is also the most rush yards before contact allowed by the Cardinals since Week 14 of 2012 (Seahawks, 214). Eighty of LeSean McCoy's season-high 110 rush yards came before contact, his second most in a game since joining the Bills prior to last season.

Is Rex Ryan off the hot seat? It's too early to tell, but the Bills made a statement Sunday that they're still on the map with a 33-18 win over the Super Bowl-contending Cardinals. The Bills took a 17-0 lead in this game by holding Arizona to a total of 2 yards over their first five possessions, and then held on as the Cardinals' offense picked up steam.

Carson Palmer had not thrown a pick through two games this season, but with three today, he has 11 INTs in the Cardinals' last seven games. He had nine in the previous 14 games.
