Insta-Graham: Bills outclass hapless Rams

LOS ANGELES -- The Buffalo Bills took advantage of the Los Angeles Rams' eroded defensive line and Jeff Fisher's lame-brained judgment for a 30-19 victory Sunday at the Coliseum.

The Bills have won three in a row for the first time in five years.

Los Angeles was down by seven points with six minutes left in the game and had the ball on Buffalo's 4-yard line. Fisher elected to kick the field goal, cutting Buffalo's lead to four points.

Yo, Jeff, your Rams still needed a touchdown.

Next thing he knew, his team was down 11.

Fisher tried a fake punt at the end of the next possession, but the Bills weren't fooled and took over on the Rams' 25-yard line.

Bills fans sang their "Shout" song four plays later, heard around the stadium, four plays later on Marquise Goodwin's touchdown catch.

The Bills, however, didn't win easily. The Rams outgained them and amassed 23 first downs.

The Rams were outplaying the Bills in the second half, tying the score at 16 and then forcing a punt, when Nickell Robey-Coleman returned a Case Keenum interception 41 yards for a touchdown with 3:54 remaining in the third quarter. That was the Bills' first pass breakup.

Bills linebacker Lorenzo Alexander was the defensive star with three sacks, a pass breakup and a heavy kickoff-coverage tackle. He was about to sack Keenum again, but a desperation toss in the waning moments ended up in Robey-Coleman's hands.

LeSean McCoy gashed the Rams' front seven. He ran five times for 85 yards in the second quarter alone and finished with 150 yards.

Tyrod Taylor completed 12 of his 23 passes for 124 yards and two touchdowns with no turnovers.
