Despite the fact that the 1978 Buffalo Bills were not a very good team, they hold a prestigious modern-day NFL team record (essentially by default). The Chuck Knox-coached Bills finished 5-11, with opposing teams licking their chops in anticipation of pounding the ball against the porous Bills rushing defense; that season, Buffalo allowed an average of 201.8 rushing YPG, and allowed 23 opposing rushers to reach the end zone. The Bills, who allowed 309 rushing yards against Cleveland and 285 against Miami, held just one opponent under 100 yards on the ground.In fact, teams had so much fun running against the Bills that they forgot about the passing game. As a result, Buffalo set a modern-day (16-game schedule) record for fewest passing yards allowed in a season: 1,960 total yards or 122.5 YPG. Right on their heels, though, were the ’78 Los Angeles Rams, who allowed the second-fewest passing yards ever (2,048 / 128 YPG). In fact, 11 other teams in that 1978 season were within 435...

Too bad for the Bills and their fans, it's a little late for a realistic postseason push.

Buffalo Bills running back Fred Jackson has been accustomed to the starting role for three years now, and he's amassed nearly 1,000 yards in each of those years. But after a second trip to the injury list this season and the breakout performance of fellow back C.J.

When blacked out Bills games roll around it becomes very difficult to stay vested in their success. Considering that Sunday’s game along with the St. Louis and Jets games are likely to be blacked out, I’m pretty sure my Sundays are going to be free.

On a few occasions, Chan Gailey would tell his coaches this before the Bills hired him as coach.

However, after about two and half seasons worth of...
