Bills' long drives with no points unprecedented

Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Graham
Hate to do this to Buffalo Bills fans trying to get over their team's ineptitude in the red zone Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers, but ESPN Stats & Analysis has discovered something about the offense's colossal breakdowns.

The Bills had two possessions of 15 or more plays and over 75 yards, making them the first team all season (that's 384 games) to have two such drives in the same game. They did it with different quarterbacks, no less.

Of the 29 times a team has mounted such a drive this year, none failed to score. They produced 21 touchdowns and eight field goals.

The Bills didn't score on either of theirs.

Rian Lindell missed a field goal in the second quarter, and the Bills turned over the ball on downs in the fourth quarter.

For the game, the Bills entered the red zone four times and scored three points.
