CLEVELAND -- Quick highlights from the Buffalo Bills' 24-14 victory here over the Cleveland Browns.
What it means: The Bills are 2-1 and tied for first place in the AFC East. The Browns dropped to 0-3 and, with road games against the Baltimore Ravens and New York Giants ahead, are in serious trouble.
C.J. Spiller injured: The Bills lost the NFL's leading rusher in the first quarter to what's officially been called a shoulder injury. He was carted off the field for X-rays and did not return. We possibly will learn more from the locker room or Monday morning. Please check back for updates.
Star of the game: Tashard Choice stepped in for Spiller and played well enough for nearly three quarters to settle the offense. Choice ran 20 times for 91 yards.
Stat line of the game: The Bills' defense limited Browns running back Trent Richardson to 27 yards on 12 carries. Richardson did bounce outside for a 6-yard touchdown run on a play when the Bills did a poor job wrapping him up.
Another important stat line: Ryan Fitzpatrick, aside from a fumble in the second quarter that wiped out the chance for at least a field goal, was effective. He completed 22 of his 35 passes for 208 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions.
Play of the day: Before he got hurt, Spiller had an electrifying 32-yard catch-and-run up the left sideline to give the Bills a 14-0 lead in the first quarter.
Sack attack: Mario Williams and Mark Anderson, the Bills' two major free-agent acquisitions, each recorded their first sacks with the team. Anderson's sack came on a third-down play from Buffalo's 49-yard line in the fourth quarter. Buffalo's defensive tackles, Kyle Williams and Marcell Dareus, also had one sack apiece.
Coming up: The Bills will get to test their AFC East wherewithal against the New England Patriots next Sunday in Ralph Wilson Stadium.
