The Bills are doing just enough to keep it interesting for their fans. Playoffs are still a long shot, but as Lloyd Christmas would say, “So you’re saying there’s a chance?!”
Here are things I “Billieve” following Buffalo’s 34-18 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars.
1. I may owe Dave Wannstedt an apology.
No one wanted Wannstedt fired more than me earlier this year. The defense was a disaster.
No one was getting to the quarterback.
The linebackers were consistently out of place, and the defensive backs gave up big plays consistently.
Most of all, the defense was giving up 30+ points consistently.
Mario Williams has been incredible following his wrist procedure and notched another sack and forced fumble to his resume. Kyle Moore is applying consistent pressure to the QB, and Marcell Dareus is finally playing solid football. Kyle Williams has been excellent all season and Alex Carrington has provided excellent depth.
Linebackers are suddenly filling gaps correctly and Nigel B...

Buffalo Bills WB Ryan Fitzpatrick kept the Bills very very slim playoff hopes alive, leading his team on five consecutive scoring drives to knock off the Jacksonville Jaguars 34-18.
While his numbers weren’t all that great, 9 for 17, 112 yards, 2 TDs and INT, they don’t quite tell the whole story. Sure it was against a struggling team like Jacksonville, but he persevered without...
The Buffalo Bills have released veteran linebacker Kirk Morrison, who became the odd-man out on a team needing to fill holes on a banged-up offensive line.
The move was announced Monday, shortly after coach Chan Gailey said the Bills were contemplating making a roster move to free up space after losing two starting linemen in a 34-18 win over Jacksonville.
Center Eric Wood (left...
The Buffalo Bills aren’t doing a whole lot right these days and as they should be, fans aren’t all that happy. The organization doesn’t know their head from their feet regarding starting quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick and apparently has no clue that third-year running back CJ Spiller is one of the most dynamic ball-toters in the league.
Instead of spending their $75 and making...
Hot News for DE Chris Kelsay
Turns out, Mario Williams wasn't lying about the effect his early-season wrist ailment was having on his play.Through the first half of the season, Williams looked like a guy who signed a $100 million contract and didn't feel the need to earn it. But at the time, he was battling a wrist injury and had surgery at the bye week. Before the bye, Williams recorded 3.5 sacks,...

The Bills released veteran LB Kirk Morrison on Monday. The 30-year-old had not played in a game this season.
Morrison, who had more than 116 tackles in each season from 2005-09 with the Raiders, signed a contract last March to stay with the Bills. In 2011, he appeared in 14 games and made seven tackles, one sack and one pass defensed.
Morrison played in every game from 2005-10...

The Bills announced on Wednesday that Russell Salvatore, of Russell's Steaks, Chops and More, had stepped in to prevent the game from being blacked out on local television. The Bills had said last week that there were more than...
Buffalo Bills center Eric Wood has suffered a partially-torn medial collateral ligament.
No surgery will be necessary to repair the damage, but Wood said he expected to miss the next two games. He sustained the injury during Sunday's 34-18 win over Jacksonville.
"Could be (back) as soon as two weeks, it could end the season...it's unbelievable," Wood said on...

After rough stretches, the Buffalo Bills and St. Louis Rams are back in the playoff conversation.
That could change for one of them Sunday at Ralph Wilson Stadium.
After splitting their first six games and being tied for the AFC East lead, the Bills dropped three in a row. Buffalo, though, has won two of three to improve to 5-7 and is tied with Miami and the Jets, with all three...

(Author's note: I came up with the general theme and "Stop it." idea halfway through writing this. Hence why it seems a bit disorganized. Still in better shape than the Bills, I think.)
Hey everybody! Did you miss me?
Ok then. Well if anybody even knows/remembers who the hell I am, I have not written for Buffalo Wins for a long time because of...
Things are a whole lot easier when the Buffalo Bills have enough carries to spare between their two No. 1-caliber running backs. A stout defensive showing and ground-and-pound-friendly weather Sunday eliminated any urgency with the Bills' offense, and 186 rushing yards between Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller was the result in a 34-18 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars. “We...
