Underdog Bills unleash D on Cousins in 27-6 win vs. Vikings

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) With Minnesota facing fourth-and-1 at the Buffalo 26, Kirk Cousins pivoted left and passed to fullback C.J. Ham in the flat near the first-down marker.

The throw early in the fourth quarter was on target as Ham began to head up the field, but safety Micah Hyde quickly closed in to take him down and knock the ball loose for an incompletion right in front of the Bills sideline.

Coaches and players jubilantly jumped to celebrate Hyde's play, as if the turnover on downs was a pivotal moment in a tight game. No, the Bills actually led 27-0 at that point. They were simply enjoying the spoils of a stunningly lopsided victory, after two rough games to start the season.
