Andy Dalton helps Bengals stay perfect

Buffalo Bills lose three more starters to injuries against Bengals

The Buffalo Bills are "snake bit." Those words coming from head coach Rex Ryan following another day when his team lost multiple starters to injury. The first starter to go down to injury was offensive tackle Seantrel Henderson, who was taken to the locker room for evaluation of a concussion. Cyrus Kouandjio stepped in for the rest of the game.

The final starter to go down was Kyle Williams, who apparently sprained a ligament in his knee with just a few minutes left in the game. He likely won't be back before the bye.
