Bills giving Ravens a battle

We're five minutes into the second quarter here at M&T Bank Stadium, and the winless Bills, who all week I have called the NFL's worst team, are giving the Ravens one heck of a battle. They lead, 17-3, thanks in part to a 33-yard touchdown catch by Lee Evans midway through the opening quarter. Ravens cornerback Josh Wilson fumbled on the ensuing kickoff, eventually leading to a Bills field goal.

The Bills just scored on another touchdown pass -- this one to Steve Johnson -- to take a double-digit lead.

The Bills are having success running the ball on the Ravens, who are allowing nearly five yards a carry to Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller so far. Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick has been efficient against a Ravens secondary that got torched by Kyle Orton and Tom Brady in the team's last two games. Needless to say, I'm surprised the Bills have played this well so far.

The Ravens are running the ball well, but only five of their 15 plays so far have been runs. I guess Cam Cameron didn't get the memo about the Bills having the NFL's 32nd-ranked run defense.

The Ravens are 0-for-3 on third down.

It's still pretty early, but the Ravens better get their act together pronto to avoid an embarrassing loss.
