After taking over for an injured Trent Edwards against the Jets the week before, J.P. Losman made the most of his first start in more than a month, completing 24 of 34 passes for a season-high 295 yards and a touchdown. But with the Bills trailing 21-19 and time ticking away in the fourth quarter, the team turned to a different passer: Marshawn Lynch.

“Aw, man, it was high school. Pitch and catch with Robert Royal. I just wanted to make sure I got that tight spiral on the ball,” the rookie running back said after his 8-yard toss to Royal for the go-ahead score with 5:51 remaining. Lynch got back to his specialty the next time the Bills had the ball, breaking loose down the right sideline for a 56-yard touchdown run to put the Bengals away, and finished with a career-best 153 yards on 29 carries as the Bills won for the fourth time in five games to even their record at 4-4.

The defense also played a major role, stuffing the Cincy running game to the tune of 28 yards on 17 carries and keeping the Bengals’ potent passcatching tandem of Chad Johnson and T.J. Houshmandzadeh under 100 yards ... combined. Johnson’s afternoon took a frightening turn in the fourth quarter, when he was leveled by a wicked shot from Donte Whitner on a pass over the middle and left the field on a stretcher.
