Pressured by Bills D, Cousins drops ball in Vikings defeat

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) The Buffalo Bills unfolded an astute defensive game plan at Minnesota and unleashed their front seven on Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins.

The most important part of their preparation and execution? Forcing Cousins to fumble.

With a third-down strip-sack of Cousins inside the 20-yard line to turn the ball over on each of Minnesota's first two possessions, Buffalo converted those big plays into 10 easy points on the way to a 27-6 victory Sunday.
