203 – After putting up 31 points on Monday night, the Bills now have 203 points scored on the season. It's a club record for the six games to start a season breaking the mark of 200 set by the 1964 AFL Champion Bills.

204 – Tyler Bass with three field goals and a pair of point after attempts put up 11 points Monday night giving him 204 in his young career. Bass is already one of three NFL players since 1950 to record 204 or more points in his first 22 regular season games.
