Buffalo rookie Edwards completed 22 of 36 passes for 257 yards and keyed the winning drive with a clutch 30-yard pass to Josh Reed. Defensively for the Bills, end Larry Triplett showed tremendous athleticism for a 293-pound man in making an acrobatic, diving interception. He also had a forced fumble and three tackles.
The Redskins held a pregame memorial service for slain safety Sean Taylor. They started the game in honor of Taylor and gave up a 22-yard rush to Fred Jackson. Washington coach Joe Gibbs made a costly mistake late in the fourth quarter, calling a second straight timeout to try and freeze Bills K Lindell. The resulting 15-yard penalty made Lindell's job easier, turning a 51-yard attempt into a 36-yarder, which Lindell nailed.
