ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) Sam Bradford threw a 13-yard touchdown pass to Brandon Gibson with 48 seconds left to lift the St. Louis Rams to a 15-12 win over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.

Bradford was 5 of 8 for 68 yards to cap a 14-play, 84-yard drive. St. Louis (6-6-1) continued its late-season resurgence by winning its third straight for the first time since closing the 2006 season with three victories.

The Bills (5-8) all but mathematically dropped out of playoff contention by blowing a lead in the final minute of the fourth quarter for the second time this season. They squandered a 34-28 lead in a 35-34 loss to Tennessee on Oct. 21.

Buffalo's last-gasp drive ended when Ryan Fitzpatrick was intercepted by linebacker Jo-Lonn Dunbar.
