Bills improve to 8-3 with 27-17 win over Chargers (full coverage)

If there’s one thing we can count on from the Buffalo Bills this season, it’s that nothing comes easy. It hasn’t all season, and probably won’t the rest of the way, either.

Once again, the Bills jumped out to a sizable lead and could not put away the inferior Los Angeles Chargers thanks to a series of miscues by the offense which suffered through one of its worst days of the season.

The Bills did all they could to blow this game, especially in the fourth quarter when they committed three turnovers in the span of seven plays, but Tyler Bass’ 43-yard field goal with 3:26 left to play finally put it away and the Bills held on for a 27-17 victory.
