If Pep Guardiola's side win this match then they will equal the all-time English top-flight league record of 14 consecutive victories; set by Arsenal between February and August 2002.

Joe Webb stepped in at quarterback for the rest of the game for the Bills. Injuries became an issue for Buffalo, with rookie quarterback Nathan Peterman leaving in the third quarter to be evaluated for a head injury. The NFL's oldest layer hit a 43-yard wobbler that hooked in from the right and just sneaked over the crossbar.

But Ortega, who remained unbeaten by improving his record to 13-0, managed to get Swanson into another submission hold, and after about 10 seconds of Swanson staying on his feet, Swanson tapped out to end the fight.
