Each week on SBNation.com we'll have the NFL Victory of the Week, presented by Prilosec. The winning team is decided by conducting a poll on Tuesdays across all of the SB Nation NFL blogs throughout the 2010 season, with you -- the readers -- voting for the biggest win of each week.

This week's winner is the Buffalo Bills.

The Buffalo Bills had a very tough start to the 2010 season. New coach Chan Gailey and the team went winless for eight straight games. But with a change at quarterback, and some new-found weapons in the passing game, the Bills started playing much better, even though they weren't getting the victories. Now, they've won two in a row, and both were in dramatic fashion. Their latest win over the Bengals was an unbelievable comeback from being down 21 points. And not only did they comeback, they won by a huge margin. Their second-half of the game is one for the ages. 

Here's what SB Nation's Bills blog, Buffalo Rumblings, had to say:

The Buffalo Bills started their Sunday off in about as abysmal a fashion as you can imagine. The team was sloppy and penalized often, Ryan Fitzpatrick threw two rapid-fire interceptions - one returned for a touchdown - and the Bills trailed the Cincinnati Bengals 28-7 in the second quarter.

By the time the game ended, the Bills had not only recorded their first 21-point comeback win since September 21, 1997, but also won the game by 18 points. A phenomenal second-half performance, which can be accurately described as equal parts Bills heart and Bengals shart, yielded 35 consecutive points to Buffalo. That erased a 31-14 Bengals halftime lead, and put the ice on a 49-31 victory for the now 2-8 Bills.

Over 8,600 SB Nation readers voted this week, and it wasn't even close. The Bills/Bengals game was the runaway winner with 48% of the vote (4,228 votes). Thanks to all SB Nation readers who participated.
