Bills Vs. Browns, Week 3: Buffalo Rush Defense Strong In Victory

The Buffalo Bills played well defensively in Sunday's 24-14 win over the Cleveland Browns. More specifically, their rush defense was outstanding, as the folks over at SB Nation's Buffalo Rumblings noted:

The Buffalo Bills' rushing defense is legit, as they held Trent Richardson in check for the majority of the game. His longest run on the day was a six yard touchdown run where he was bottled up at the point of attack. He managed 27 rushing yards on 12 carries and the Browns were held to just 33 yards on the ground.

Cleveland averaged just 2.5 yards per carry and was forced to lean heavily on its passing game. The Browns finished the day having attempted 43 passes as compared to just 13 runs. That one-dimensional attack made life easier on the Bills defense, which limited Cleveland's offense to just four yards per play. The Bills also picked off a pair of passes.
