Second down – Week 9

Name that player
With his 42-yard interception return for a touchdown Jabari Greer became the sixth player in team history with two interception returns for touchdowns in a single season. Who was the last Bills player to accomplish the feat?

Fine shines
Though he made his NFL debut last week at Miami, rookie tight end Derek Fine made a bigger splash in his first career home game with four receptions for 43 yards and a touchdown. Fine's first career catch was a touchdown on a nine-yard scoring pass from Trent Edwards. He became the 19th player in team history to score a TD on his first career reception.

Lynch goes to the air
With yards on the ground hard to come by, Marshawn Lynch made the most of his three receptions Sunday piling up a career-high 52 receiving yards. Lynch's first catch of the day went for 42 yards to account for most of his yardage total on the day. Lynch now has 27 receptions on the season extending his personal season high after making just 18 catches as a rookie in 2007.

Royal racks up YAC
Robert Royal led all Bills receivers with five receptions Sunday. It was the highest reception total by the veteran tight end since a six-catch day in the season opener against Seattle. Royal also posted a career high 70 receiving yards.

Poz piling up tackles
Paul Posluszny was atop the team's tackle chart for the second straight week Sunday. Posluszny tied with Bryan Scott last week and had a team high nine tackles against the Jets.

Poz currently ranks fourth in the AFC among linebackers with 50 solo tackles on the season. Only Denver's D.J. Williams, Indy's Gary Brackett and Oakland's Kirk Morrison have more.

Edwards still hitting targets
His two interceptions Sunday not withstanding, Trent Edwards had a good day when it came to completion percentage. Edwards hit on better than 68 percent of his passes against the Jets going 24-35 (68.6%) for a career high 289 yards.

Edwards has posted a completion percentage of better than 60 percent in all game in which he has 20 or more attempts. His current season completion percentage of 68.02 percent is the highest single-season rate in team history.

Name that player answer
Takeo Spikes is the last Bills player to record a pair of interception returns for touchdowns in one season. He did it in 2004.
