Rams vs. Bills score update: Field goal gives Buffalo early lead

Kevin Hoffman-USA TODAY Sports

With Buffalo accounting for all five first downs in the game, the Bills have a 3-0 lead on the Rams after 15 minutes.

It's been a quiet start for the offenses at Ralph Wilson Stadium, but the Buffalo Bills finally got on the board with a 35-yard field goal from Rian Lindell late in the first quarter.

The score gave Buffalo a 3-0 lead over the St. Louis Rams, which is where we stand after one quarter of play.

Lindell's field goal capped a 10-play, 56-yard drive that took 5:37 of game clock and resulted in the only point of the game so far with 2:!7 to play in the first quarter.

The opening period saw only five first downs, all going to the Bills, who have amassed 122 total yards of offense, compared to just three for St. Louis.

It will be tough for the Rams not to improve on their first-quarter offensive numbers, with quarterback Sam Bradford completing just one out of five passes for six yards. Steven Jackson, with two yards, is St. Louis's only player with positive yardage on the ground.
