Bills 19, Cardinals 16 (OT)

Another eventful game for the Cardinals ends in a rare overtime disaster, as Bills' safety Jairus Byrd intercepts John Skelton and returns it to the Arizona 6-yard line. Ryan Lindell kicked the 25-yard game-winner, and Arizona has now lost two straight after starting the season 4-0.

Buffalo salvages a tough stretch in which it played at home against New England and at San Francisco before spending a week in the Phoenix area leading up to the extra-time victory at Arizona.

Ryan Fitzpatrick finished the day 18-of-32 for 153 yards and a 68.9 QB rating. He was sacked twice—both coming from outside linebacker O'Brien Schofield.

Kevin Kolb finished his day early, leaving with a rib injury midway through a drive. He completed 14-of-26 passes for 128 yards, one TD, one INT and a 64.3 rating. John Skelton, in his first game active from injury, completed just 2-of-10 passes for 45 yards and the INT for a 6.3 rating.

It wasn't a good relief effort for Skelton, who suffered from the same lack of protection Kolb did.

Buffalo improves to 3-3, and with the way the cards fell today are now in a four-way tie for the lead in the AFC East.

Arizona drops to 4-2, and with San Francisco's loss and Seattle's win are in a three-way tie for first in the NFC West.

The 2012 NFL season is officially wacky, and with 10 games to go it will be a fun finish.
