Coming into the contest, the Bears defense was the toughest unit to convert against on third down, as they only allowed first downs on 29.6 % of the time. The Bills however didn't seem to have that many problems moving the ball, as they converted on 10 out of 16 tries on third down.
The Bills' offense outgained Chicago's 340 yards to 283. Mike Martz is thought to be the pass crazy coach, but it was the Bills behind quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick that threw the ball 51 times. Of course, if you are passing it that much, it means you aren't running the football. The Bills didn't stick very long with their running game, and they only picked up 46 rushing yards.
Ryan Fitzpatrick fell just one passing yard short of the 300 mark. He was sacked once so his final net total was 294. Fitzpatrick completed passes all day to Steve Johnson, who caught 11 balls for 145 yards. Roscoe Parrish had the only touchdown reception for Buffalo. He caught seven passes for 60 yards. Lee Evans rounded out the offense with three passes for 31 yards. Tight end Shawn Nelson was nowhere to be seen as he was mysteriously absent from the Bills' offense for the second week in a row.
The Bills' offense continues to click behind Ryan Fitzpatrick. They only had one three and out drive for the day, which was their opening drive. That is a vast improvement over what the Bills did in 2009.
