ORCHARD PARK -- The Bills came into Sunday’s game with Oakland leading the league in turnover differential. Buffalo’s ability to force turnovers continued, helping them erase an early 7-0 deficit and score 27 straight points. By the time the Raiders woke up the game was already over as Buffalo improved to 5-2 on the season with a 34-14 victory.

Buffalo’s defense and special teams posted four takeaways on the day. Matt Milanoreturned a fumble 40 yards for a touchdown at the end of the first half. Come the second half Buffalo got a fumble recovery from Mike Tolbert on a Raiders punt return and an interception by Micah Hyde on the next Raiders possession helped the Bills post a pair of field goals to boost their lead to 20-7.

Tyrod Taylor and the offense would then stage their longest drive of the game going 80 yards on 12 plays with Taylor scoring on a fourth-and-goal from the one-yard line to make it 27-7 at the start of the fourth quarter.

The Raiders responded with a touchdown drive to make it a two-score game (27-14), but it was too little too late.

LeSean McCoy put a bow on the victory with a 48-yard touchdown run with three minutes left on a one-play scoring drive.

Safety Trae Elston, filling in for the injured Jordan Poyer, posted the last takeaway, an interception in the game’s waning moments.

The win kept Buffalo unbeaten at home. It’s the first time the Bills have begun the season 4-0 at home since 1995.
