Bills' defense creeping up in league ranking


The Buffalo Bills' defense finally has worked its way back into the top half of the NFL ranking in yards allowed.

The Bills, who were down at 27th after their loss at New Orleans three weeks ago, are back up to 16th, allowing 347.8 yards a game. In terms of yards allowed per play -- which is relevant because the Bills' offense is 28th in controlling the ball -- Buffalo stands 11th in the league.

Buffalo stands 21st in terms of points allowed. However, it is tied for ninth in touchdowns allowed.

Buffalo's offense is 17th in yards gained and 21st in scoring.
