For those who wondered how the Bills would respond to last week's debacle in Toronto, now you know.
Buffalo commited five turnovers and 11 penalties in their worst overall performance of the season, a 27-6 loss in Tampa Bay.
Rookie quarterback EJ Manuel went backwards this week, throwing a career high four interceptions, matching his season total coming into the game.
But this game felt over before Manuel and the offense touched the ball. Tampa Bay running back Bobby Rainey took the second play from scrimmage 80 yards for the game's first touchdown, giving the Bucs a 7-0 lead.
A Dan Carpenter field goal made it 7-3, but rookie quarterback Mike Glennon tossed a 38 yard touchdown pass to Vincent Jackson to make it 14-3 after the first quarter. Buffalo would never get closer than that.
With the loss, the Bills fell to 4-9 on the season, guaranteeing themselves a ninth straight losing season.
