1. Noteworthy achievements from Sunday's win

3-0: With the win Sunday, Buffalo has a 3-0 start for the second straight season. The Bills had consecutive 3-0 starts on only two other occasions in 1964-65 & 1991-92.

67: Sunday marked the first time Buffalo allowed 30+ points in a win since a 34-31 win against the Patriots in 2011. The 67 combined points are the most in a Bills game since 2017 when the L.A. Chargers (54) and Bills (24) combined for 78 points.

1,038: Josh Allen has thrown 1,038 passing yards to start the 2020 season. He set a new franchise record for passing yards in the first three games of a season. The old record was 1,019 passing yards set by Jim Kelly in 1991.

72: Corey Bojorquez had a career-long 72-yard punt in the third quarter. His previous long was 67 yards vs. Baltimore on 12/8/19. It was the longest punt by a Bill since Brian Moorman had a 73-yard punt against the Chiefs in 2009.

2: Tyler Kroft caught two touchdowns in yesterday's game. That ties a career-high for him, and he also caught a game winning touchdown for the second time in his Bills career. The first time was December 2019 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

12: Josh Allen recorded a rushing and a passing touchdown for 12th time in career. That is second-most in team history, behind Jack Kemp (13). Allen also ranks third by an NFL QB in his first three seasons, behind Cam Newton (20) and Dak Prescott (13).

20: Stefon Diggs has 20 receptions through the first three weeks of the season. He is the first Buffalo Bill with 20+ receptions in a season's first 3 games since Stevie Johnson and David Nelson each had 20 in 2011.

40: Josh Allen now has 40 career touchdown passes. He needs eight more to pass Doug Flutie at seventh on the list with 47 touchdown passes.

2. Matt Milano makes an impact in return

Matt Milano has been one of the key pieces of this Bills defense since he was drafted in 2017. His presence has been missed, as he has been dealing with a hamstring injury that he sustained in Week 1. Milano sat out last week but came back and played in Sunday's win against the Rams and he made a lot of big plays to help them get that win. 

"Yeah, so good to be back out there, Milano said. "Anytime I'm not out there, it's painful for me. So just to be out there with the guys, it felt good. Trying to make plays, trying to do whatever I can to get the win."

In Week 1, Milano snatched his first interception of the season, which was the fifth of his career. In yesterday's game, he got his first sack of the season which was a key third down stop. Milano now has 3.5 sacks in his career and was excited about getting one in his first game back. 

"It was good, Milano added. "I thought he was going to roll out of there or something like that, but he just stood there. You have to take advantage of those ones."
