47: Josh Allen recorded his 100th career touchdown on Sunday, doing so in just his 47th career game. It makes him the fourth fastest to 100 career touchdowns in league history. Only Patrick Mahomes (39), Dan Marino (43), Deshaun Watson (44) and Kurt Warner (46) did it faster.

5: By now everyone knows that Josh Allen threw for 358 yards and four touchdowns in Sunday's victory, while rushing for another. Most also know he's just the fourth player in NFL history to have multiple games with those kinds of figures (300+ passing, 4 passing TDs, 1 rushing TD).

The other three are Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers and Peyton Manning.

But he also became just the fifth player ever to have five such games in his first four NFL seasons joining Patrick Mahomes (9), Pro Football Hall of Famers Dan Marino (9), Kurt Warner (6) and Andrew Luck (6).

+50: Buffalo is tied for the league lead in point differential with Denver. Through three games they have outscored their opponents by 50 points (94-44). The margin is thanks largely to their first halves this season where they've outscored opponents 51-14.

6: Buffalo's defense is tied for the AFC lead in takeaways with six. They're also tied for the conference lead in turnover differential at plus-3.

8-1: This is Buffalo's record vs. Washington in their last nine meetings. It also gives Buffalo more wins against Washington than any other NFC team, and moves them into a tie with New England (8-1 vs. Chicago) for best record of any Super Bowl rematch series.

11: Cole Beasley tied a single-game career high with 11 receptions in Sunday's win. He's done it three times in his career and they've all happened in a Bills uniform, after posting 11 catches twice in a game last season. Beasley is also tied for the AFC lead in receptions after three weeks and is tied for third in the NFL with 23.

481: Buffalo's 481 total net yards on Sunday were their most since their 534 at Denver last December. It's their fourth 400-yard game in their last six outings. Buffalo currently has a streak of 300-plus yards in 13 games, which is now the second-longest streak in team annals.

32-3: Under head coach Sean McDermott the Bills rarely lose when they go into the locker room with a lead at the half. With Sunday's victory, Buffalo now has a winning percentage of .914 when leading after two quarters of play with the won-loss record listed here.

2: Matt Milano has been a catalyst on Buffalo's defense through the first three weeks. With fumble recoveries in back-to-back games in Weeks 2 and 3, the linebacker is now tied for the league lead in that statistical category.

169: Tyler Bass Became fifth NFL player since 1950 to record 169 or more points in his first 19 regular season games, joining Harrison Butker (202), Kevin Butler (173), Younghoe Koo (173), and Mason Crosby (169). Bass is also tied for fourth in the league in touchbacks on kickoffs (14) and fifth in points (28).
