The Big Number: 492

The Buffalo Bills' rushing defense has gone into total collapse in the last two games.

After allowing 194 yards in a loss to the Jets, the Bills allowed 298 yards on the ground Sunday in a 47-10 thrashing by the New Orleans Saints. That's 492 rushing yards in two weeks.

The Saints' rushing total included 131 yards on 21 carries – an average of 6.2 yards per carry – and three touchdowns for Mark Ingram, and rookie Alvin Kamara added 106 yards and a TD on 12 carries, for an average of 8.8.

Coach Sean McDermott talked last week about how the key was not giving up points even if the Bills allowed yards. Sunday, they allowed plenty of both as the Saints finished with 47 points and 482 yards of total offense.
