Five-star answer: Give the Bills defense credit
By Tim MacMahon
Five-star question: Will Tony Romo, who has not thrown an interception in his last 64 passes, keep his streak alive against Buffalo?
Let’s give the Bills’ defense its just due. Buffalo ranks among the elite when it comes to creating turnovers.
The Bills have 15 interceptions this season. The undefeated Packers, who have 16, are the only team with more picks.
Safety George Wilson is the Bills’ primary playmaker in the secondary with four interceptions. But four other Buffalo defenders have two picks apiece. That’s one of the primary reasons the Bills are in the thick of the AFC playoff race.
Buffalo even managed to rattle Tom Brady. He threw four picks in a loss to the Bills, matching his total from all of last season.
So it is extremely likely that Romo will throw at least one interception Sunday.
