Washington Redskins maintained their 100% record in pre-season with a 30-7 victory over the Buffalo Bills tonight.

Doug Marrone's side hit straight back with a two yard run from CJ Spiller to tie the scores. However, the Bills were hit with a double injury woe as Spiller and quarterback Kevin Kolb were forced to leave the game.

Kai Forbath kicked Mike Shanahan's side back into the lead with a field goal and they further added to this when quarterback Pat White came into the game and ran for a 14-yard strike.

Forbath added two more field goals before running back Keiland Williams sealed the win in the fourth quarter with a one yard run.

Matters got worse for Buffalo as starting cornerback Stephon Gilmore also left the game with a wrist injury as the Redskins eased to their third win of pre-season.
