Edward Jones Dome, Saint Louis, MO
ST. LOUIS -- The Buffalo Bills are 4-0 for the first time in 16 years. Unlike the previous two weeks, there was no need for late-game heroics to keep them unbeaten.Jabari Greer's 33-yard interception return on the first play of the fourth quarter was the go-ahead score in an 18-point fourth-quarter that finished off the surprisingly competitive, go-for-broke St. Louis Rams 31-14 on Sunday.
• The Bills start 4-0 for the sixth time since the merger (1970). The last two times they achieved the feat (1991-92), they went on to reach the Super Bowl.
• Saturday's loss marked the second straight year the Rams have started 0-4. They started 0-8 last season.
• The Bills improved to 2-0 all-time against the Rams in St. Louis.
