The New Orleans Saints have made it seven straight National Football League wins with a franchise-record six rushing touchdowns to hammer the Buffalo Bills 47-10.

The Saints' seventh straight win was by far their most impressive one yet, as they demoralized the Bills with a total of 298 rushing yards and a franchise-record six rushing touchdowns.

At best, Sunday's pitiful performance was rock bottom for Buffalo's defense, which has been sliding after allowing a league-best 13.5 points per game through Week 4. The Bills at least held in the red zone of the Saints' next drive, forcing a 23-yard field goal to keep the game within 14 points.

Here are the top takeaways from the Bills' gut-wrenching loss.

It was just the third time in Saints history where they had two running backs with more than 100 yards and a touchdown in the same game (Reggie Bush/Deuce McAllister in 2006 and Reuben Mayes/Craig Heyward in 1990).

The Bills were hoping their Week 9 loss to the Jets was an aberration.

The second quarter mirrored the first quarter: The Saints gained 132 yards of offense and scored on both of their possessions while the Bills punted three times and trailed 17-3 at the break.

So much for the progress made by McDermott and defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier in trying to fix the shortcomings of the Rex Ryan era.

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, out injured since the start of last season, was visibly emotional on the sideline as he returned to back up Case Keenum, who threw touchdowns to Stefon Diggs, Adam Thielen and David Morgan in a 38-30 win over the Washington Redskins.
