While we made the handling of Peyton Manning and Aaron Rodgers a primary focus in our feature story coming off of Buffalo’s win over Green Bay Sunday. The two quarterbacks are just part of a string of signal callers that have not been able to manage a passing touchdown against Buffalo’s defense.

The Bills held Manning without a touchdown for the first time in 51 games, then held Rodgers, the league leader in touchdown passes to no scoring throws Sunday, but that’s been the case for Buffalo’s the defense the past four weeks now.

Buffalo did not allow Michael Vick or Geno Smith to throw a touchdown pass back in Week 12 and Brian Hoyer and Johnny Manziel could not reach the end zone through the air either, though Manziel had a rushing score. Ryan Tannehill is the last quarterback to throw a TD pass against the Bills back in Week 11.

In fact Tannehill’s two passing TDs in that Week 11 game are the only two passing touchdowns allowed by Buffalo since midseason. Opposing quarterback have not thrown a touchdown pass on the Bills in six of the last seven games.

That group of quarterbacks has however, throw a total of 11 interceptions to Buffalo defenders.
