Rob Carr/Getty Images(ORCHARD PARK, N.Y.) — Buffalo’s defense wouldn’t allow the Bills to lose.
The Bills picked off Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco five times and sacked him four, as Buffalo hung on to top Baltimore 23-20 Sunday.
“We’re definitely going to get better, and we have to get better,” Flacco said afterward. “A lot of that falls on me today just throwing the ball to the wrong team.”
Bills defensive back Aaron Williams and linebacker Kiko Alonso both had two interceptions. Alonso’s second pick came with 57 seconds left in the game, sealing the win for Buffalo.
“I thought I played pretty good, ” Williams said. “I can’t complain about two interceptions, but at the same time I can’t give up big plays like that towards the end. My defense really helped me out in that situation and Kiko (Alonso) did a great job getting that pick.”
Buffalo (2-2) rushed out to a 20-6 halftime lead, highlighted by a 42 yard touchdown pass from EJ Manuel to Robert Woods.
The Ravens (2-2) only had nine rushing attempts gaining 24 yards on the ground.
Torrey Smith had five catches for 166 yards and a touchdown in the loss.
