Here are the pertinent and painful numbers from the Redskins 23-0 loss to the Buffalo Bills at the Rogers Center in Toronto, Ontario.
262 - Yards passing from Ryan Fitzpatrick, on an extremely efficient 20 of 27 day. He had two touchdowns, and in parts of the game, picked apart the Redskins secondary seemingly at will.
208 - Yard passing for John Beck. When you remove the yards he lost on sacks (which official net yardage results do), Beck had 152 yards. He lost 56 yards on sacks.

Ryan Fitzpatrick would rather talk about the Buffalo Bills and their 5-2 record instead of why he keeps his ring on for games — a rare move in the N.F.L..
The Washington Redskins went into their game against Buffalo yesterday down a boatload of starters on offense, but not even in their worst moments could players have imagined the futility of that unit’s performance in the team’s 23-0 loss.

The Buffalo Bills have surprised this season led by a high powered offense. Running back Fred Jackson is playing as well as any back in the league and possesses the type of game breaking ability on the edges that has given the New York Jets defense fits this year. Ryan Fitzpatrick quarterbacks a spread attack that is built around his quick release and timing.
In terms of Buffalo’s...
