Why Bills need takeaways

Posted by Chris Brown on November 5, 2011 – 9:44 am

The Bills are tied for the NFL lead in takeaways with 18 through the first eight weeks of the NFL season. And that’s a good thing based on recent history.

In an eye-popping stat first reported by ESPN New York’s Rich Cimini, the Bills have lost their last 15 games in which they have failed to record a takeaway. That’s a stretch that includes Buffalo’s Week 7 loss against the Giants, as well as a loss to the Jets in 2009.

Buffalo’s last victory when they did not post a takeaway came on Nov. 11, 2007 in a 13-10 win over Miami.
