Bills vs. Lions: Buffalo Bills Win First Game of Season Behind Fred Jackson

Fred Jackson scored two touchdowns on Sunday, leading the Buffalo Bills to their first win of the 2010 season, as they defeated the Detroit Lions 14-12. The Lions scored a touchdown in the final minute of the game, but their two-point conversion attempt to send the game into overtime failed, and the Bills held on for their first win. The loss continued the Lions consecutive losing streak of road games to 25 straight, which set a new NFL record.

For the Bills, this win was vindication for the prior three close losses and served as a testament to all the hard work and not tossing in the towel after opening up the year with eight straight defeats.

Too bad that only 56,721 fans turned out, because for those who braved the downpour that cascaded over Ralph Wilson Stadium during the second half, they were treated to an inspired effort by the Bills defense for most of the day.
