7: The number of consecutive victories over the division rival Dolphins after their 26-11 win Sunday. It's the franchise's longest winning streak ever against Miami.

8: Buffalo's winning streak against the AFC East. It's the second-longest in team history with only a 10-game win streak from 1990-91.

15.6: Buffalo's league-leading points allowed average. The Bills defense dropped their points per game allowed average by almost a field goal from what it was prior to their second meeting with Miami (16.3).

+13: The team's turnover differential, which leads the league by a wide margin. Tied for second in the league in turnover margin are Indianapolis and Green Bay with a plus-8 differential.

67: Fewest number of plays in the league allowed of 10 yards or more. Buffalo's total allowed of 67 is 16 less than the second-ranked team in the league (New Orleans, 83).

182.4: The average number of passing yards allowed per game by the Bills, which leads the league.

100 x 5: Josh Allen has now made it five straight games in which he has posted a passer rating of 100 or more. Again Miami on Sunday he had a passer rating of 100.2 giving him the longest streak of his career (Week 3-8).

8 x 2: Josh Allen threw two more touchdown passes against the Dolphins on Sunday becoming the first QB to throw two or more TDs against the same opponent in each of his first eight starts against them.

17: Since Week 3, Josh Allen has accounted for 17 total touchdowns (14 pass, 3 rush) as he tacked on three more in Sunday's win over Miami. Over that span it's tied for the league lead among quarterbacks with the Rams' Matthew Stafford and Tampa's Tom Brady.

5-0: Buffalo's record against teams with a losing record.

7-0: The Bills record after the bye since 2015, including a 5-0 mark under Sean McDermott and a 3-0 mark against Miami post-bye.

10-2: The record for the Bills in their last 12 home games.

75.8%: The percentage of teams that started 5-2 that reached the postseason since 1990. A little more than 43 percent of those teams (43.2%) won their division as well.
