Buffalo Bills defensive end Chris Kelsay is accusing teammates of not playing hard, and says it's time for players to start holding each other accountable. His frustrations boiled over Monday, a day after the defense collapsed in a 35-34 loss to Tennessee. Without singling anyone out, Kelsay says it's evident watching film that not everyone played hard every snap. The 10-year veteran is the defense's longest tenured player. Buffalo (3-4) enters its bye week with several questions to address. The biggest involves fixing a high-priced defense that's allowed an NFL-worst 1,238 yards rushing. On Sunday, the Bills gave up 195 yards rushing to Chris Johnson, and then allowed the Titans to win the game on Matt Hasselbeck's touchdown fourth-down pass to Nate Washington with 1:03 left.

Biggest Disappointment in the NFL: The Buffalo Bills

Fitztragic

Watching Ryan Fitzpatrick play quarterback is exhausting. This wasn’t always the case. Hell, you know what? Maybe it was, but it’s in our nature to see victorious lapses through rose-colored glasses.
