Jake Delhomme's 11th interception of the season has led to an early lead for the Buffalo Bills.
The first two possessions for each team ended in punts, but the game sparked to life (in a bad way for the Panthers) when Delhomme faded back and tried to hit tight end Gary Barnidge about 25 yards downfield.
Many of Delhomme's interceptions this season have come on throws up the middle, and this was another. The ball was badly overthrown and intercepted by Buffalo's Jairus Byrd, who returned it all the way to the Carolina 7.
Buffalo's Marshawn Lynch waltzed in on the second play from there -- he started slowing down about the 5 when he realized how easy it was going to be -- and Buffalo had taken a quick 7-0 lead.
