Best Twitter reactions from Bills' 47-10 loss to Saints

Best Twitter reactions from Bills' 47-10 loss to Saints

Overall, the Bills' defense allowed 298 rushing yards and 482 total yards to the Saints as they got blown out of their own stadium. But right now the two teams appear to be on a collision course for NFC supremacy.

Rookie JuJu Smith-Schuster was once again the star for the Pittsburgh Steelers as they pulled out a 20-17 win over the Indianapolis Colts to move to 7-2.

New Orleans' run game and defense have been the driving forces behind the team's longest win streak since 2011.

The Saints' future Hall of Fame quarterback has never thrown a touchdown in Buffalo. And they almost scored a TD of their own, with defensive tackle Sheldon Rankins intercepting a pass and rumbling 27 yards on the return to Buffalo's 3-yard line in the third quarter.

New Orleans won by 37, imposing its will on the ground from start to finish. Alvin Kamara had one on 106 yards, Trey Edmunds had one on 48 yards and Brees - who had zero passing touchdowns - had another running score on six yards.

The Detroit Lions joined the Packers on 5-4, two games behind the Vikings, with a hard-fought 38-24 success against the winless Cleveland Browns as Matt Stafford threw touchdown passes to Theo Riddick, Eric Ebron and Golden Tate. The Saints' 298 rushing yards were the eighth-most against Buffalo in their franchise history and most since 2012, when the Seattle Seahawks ran for 311. Before this season, the Saints hadn't done that for eight years. Still, despite the lack of touchdown throws, Brees was fifth in the National Football League with 2,214 yards passing and was tied for eighth with 13 passing touchdowns. Buffalo trailed 34-7 late in the fourth quarter of that game as the Jets rushed for 194 yards.
