Found December 12, 2011 on Buffalo Wins:
For the first time in a few weeks, I was able to sit through the majority of a Bills game. Lucky me, eh? We've reached that unfortunate point of a Bills season when we mostly want the misery to just end. It's happened almost every year for the last 12 seasons. If you're like me, you've become numb to it; I don't even get disappointed anymore. It probably makes it easier to coldly evaluate awful performances like yesterday's but it's killing our once proud passion for this team. Probably good that many of us didn't completely "buy in" when the team was 3-0. Oh, well, on to the review. 1st Quarter What Happened - San Diego wins the coin toss and chooses to receive. After a touchback, they start on the 20 yard line. - Chargers drive the 80 yards for the score, capping it with a 9 yard TD pass from Phillip Rivers to Antonio Gates. Gates had 38 yard receiving and Ryan Matthews 26 yards rushing. One positive play by Bills was 8 yard sack b...

Wins by San Diego (over the Bills) and Seattle (on Monday night) moved those teams behind the Bills in the draft order. The Bills still could move up if they lose out and finish 5-11. Indianapolis has a virtual lock on the top spot with an 0-13 record. Minnesota and St. Louis both...
