Mark Gaughan's Big Play: Bills defense keeps takeaway flood flowing

The Buffalo Bills' larcenous defense did it again.

Tre'Davious White stripped the ball away from Tampa Bay receiver Adam Humphries with 2:20 left in Sunday's game to set the Bills up for the winning score.

Stephen Hauschka's field goal with 14 seconds left gave the Bills a 30-27 victory.

The Bills' rookie No. 1 draft choice made the final key turnover on a routine receiver screen. Linebacker Preston Brown was in the process of tackling Humphries on a short gain but White raked the ball out and recovered at the Tampa 33.

The takeaway was the third of the game for the Bills and pushed their season total to 13 in just six games.

Buffalo entered the game at plus-8 in the turnover differential, which was second best in the NFL behind Jacksonville at plus-10. Now the Bills stand plus-10.

More importantly, the Bills are a surprising 4-2.
