Bills hold off Falcons, Jones hurts hip

The Big Story: Grounding the Falcons Offense

It really limited what Matt Ryan could do in the passing game late, but could have used at least one of them in their failed attempt at staying ideal. Sanu left the game in the third quarter with a hamstring injury. His only touchdown pass was to Justin Hardy that tied the game at 17 midway through the fourth quarter. That's the same record as the Falcons, though few might have predicted the way this one would go down.

But the Bills responded right away.

Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy rushed 20 times for 76 yards while adding 3 catches for 32 yards in Sunday's win over the Atlanta Falcons. But this was the first time in eight games the Falcons have lost when Freeman and Coleman combined for 200-plus yards from scrimmage.

Despite surrendering 391 total yards of offense, the Bills' defense proved that they should be mentioned among the top units in the NFL.

Julio Jones is questionable to return with a hip injury. The end result was the Bills walking away with a 23-17 win, ending the Falcons' three-game winning streak to start the season. Hauschka was 3-for-3 and kicked field goals from 56 and 55 yards out to build a six-point lead.

Micah Hyde had two interceptions on the day while Tre'Davious White had a fumble recovery for a touchdown. But the injuries certainly didn't help the Falcons' quest to improve to 4-0.
