Johnson's 267 yards passing rank second in team history vs. the Bills. Culpepper had 281 in that 2002 meeting.
Ryan Longwell's 49-yard field goal was the longest in team history vs. the Bills. Greg Davis (1997) and Rick Danmeier (1982) are tied for second with 43-yarders each against Buffalo.
This is the first time in team history that the Vikings started a season with their first four games decided by 5 points or less. Their first three games of 1999 and 1991 were by five points or less, but they went over that margin of victory/defeat in their fourth games of those two seasons.
