4, 5, 6 – All of Buffalo’s touchdowns came from in close going for four (Justin Hunter), five (Mike Gillislee) and six (Marquise Goodwin) yards.

73 – Charles Clay’s receiving yardage total was a season high and the most for the Bills in the win. He represented almost 60 percent of the team’s passing yards Sunday.

2 – Total punt return yardage for the Rams.

25% – Los Angeles’ red zone touchdown percentage (1 for 4).

60% – Bills red zone touchdown percentage (3 for 5).
