Buffalo also scored on a 60-yard touchdown pass play with Bills receiver Naaman Roosevelt making one move to turn a 10-to-15 yard pass into a scoring play.

The positive for the defense was that cornerback Corey Webster intercepted two passes in the second half. The second ended a potential Bills‘ go-ahead scoring threat and started New York on its game-winning drive that Lawrence Tynes capped with his second short field goal.

The defense iced the game four plays later, forcing the Bills to give up the ball on downs.

Diehl called the win huge.

“To do that and be 4-2 at this point, it is definitely a morale booster,” he said, “and we are excited to have that and get guys healthy, get guys fueled back up heading into next week when we play Miami at home again.”

Kiwanuka refused to discuss the schedule after the Dolphins, saying looking ahead only causes problems.

“That’s when you let one slide away that you should have had and you should have won,” he said. “For us, it is a non-issue and for me it is a non-issue because we have had a lot of injuries and we know how to play when people are out. To get people back would be a huge plus for us, but it is not about looking deep into the schedule and trying to map it out. It is about looking into this next game and getting a win.”
