Bills find feet in upset win

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — Suddenly, the Bills offense has started resembling the one that led the league in yards rushing last season.

Safety Aaron Williams returned a botched field-goal snap 53 yards for a touchdown, complementing Buffalo's three rushing touchdowns. LeSean McCoy ran for 110 yards and two scores, nearly doubling his season total of 117 yards coming in. Tyrod Taylor's 49-yard run was the longest by a quarterback in team history.

"This is what we do. This is what we are built for," guard Richie Incognito said. "This is the way we were assembled in the offseason and it's nice to see everything come to fruition."

Arizona, coming off of last week's 40-7 victory over the Bucs, had just 2 yards net offense and no first downs on its first five possessions.

  1. Rowdies settle for draw at home


    ST. PETERSBURG — The good news for the Rowdies is that they still haven't lost a game at Al Lang Stadium since late April. The bad news is they had to settle for a 1-1 tie against Ottawa on Saturday night in front of 6,710 sweaty fans.

    ST. PETERSBURG —The six runs seemed like a ton, just the second time the Rays had scored that many in a game during their numbing two-plus-weeks stretch of offensive impotency, and amazingly, the first time at the Trop in nearly two months.

    Lucas Duda connects for a two-run home run in the sixth, getting the Rays within 7-5. A Logan Morrison home run in the ninth made it 7-6, but Tampa Bay couldn’t complete the comeback.

  4. Marc Topkin's takeaways from Saturday's Rays-Mariners game

    The Heater

    SS Adeiny Hechavarria doesn't always look like he's going hard, but he showed impressive reactions Saturday in reversing field to catch a ball that clanked off the catwalk then firing to second to double up Guillermo Heredia on an attempt to tag up.
