ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — How bad are things going for the Redskins? They've been given a new dubious franchise record — in the middle of the week.

The Bills announced Wednesday that a scoring change has given the team a 10th sack in the 23-0 victory over the Redskins on Sunday in Toronto.

That's the second most in Bills history — behind an 11-sack performance at Denver on Dec. 13, 1964.

For the Redskins, it's the most they've ever allowed. The nine sacks had tied a franchise mark that last occurred in 1978.

The change was made on the first-quarter play when John Beck scrambled, then recovered his own fumble. It was originally ruled a rushing play but is now a sack shared by Nick Barnett and Danny Batten.
