What a great start for Rex Ryan and the Bills, as they beat the high flying Colts 27-14. Buffalo’s defense was just awesome, forcing two Andrew Luck interceptions. This unit really handled one of the NFL’s best offenses very well. Tyrod Taylor played well in his first start, making even plays with his arm and legs. More importantly, he took care of the ball. The good news for the Bills is they get Marcell Dareus back against the Patriots.

Since the start of 2013, the Bills' defense leads the NFL in interceptions (44) and sacks (113). It just stopped Andrew Luck in his tracks. Next up? Tom Brady.

Tyrod Taylor impressed in the opener, but now he has to face the Patriots. Bill Belichick is great at scheming against young quarterbacks.

Our first look at the Bills’ talented defensive roster with Rex Ryan was a scary sight for the rest of the NFL. The Bills will attempt to make big plays on the defensive end, control the clock and take shots in the passing game. Given their personnel, this looks like a winning formula.

The only thing sweeter than the Bills' defense stampeding the Horseshoe ... the only thing sweeter than that Buffalo crowd going bonkers all afternoon ... was that sweet shirt Tyrod Taylor was flyin' in the postgame news conference.
