The Buffalo Bills are opting out of the NFLs new, relaxed policy on televised blackouts, the team announced Friday. The Bills will not follow the new rule, which states that a local television blackout will be lifted if 85 percent of non-premium seats are sold. The old rule required a sellout 72 hours before kickoff to prevent a blackout and it appears the Bills are still abiding by that. We are a volume-based franchise, Bills CEO Russ Brandon said. For us to be successful, we have to keep our ticket prices low and sell a great number of tickets. At 73,000 strong, our fans create one of the best home field advantages in the entire National Football League. Source: Rochester Democrat & Chronicle

DT Marcell Dareus, Buffalo Bills
The 3rd overall pick of the 2011 NFL Draft made an instant impact as a rookie defensive end in Buffalo's 3-4 scheme.
He started all but one game and recorded 43 tackles and 5.5 sacks - both above average statistics for a 3-4 DE.
Dareus was also without Pro Bowl DT Kyle Williams for the entire season because of...

At least one analyst isn't buying the New York Jets' 8-8 season in 2011 as a jumping off point for a Jets tailspin. ESPN analyst and retired NFL defensive end Hugh Douglas has pegged the Jets as not only the biggest threat to knock off the New England Patriots, but he has outright picked the Jets to win the AFC East this season. Hugh Douglas focused on the Jets defense...

Last season, Scott Chandler had a breakout year after moving from team to team and was a key threat in the redzone. With former Bills’ tight end, PeteMetzellars coaching the six...
Don't let them fool you.
They don't like each other. Alright, let me rephrase that. Everyone on this Bills team loves each other. You can tell by the way they engage with each other on Twitter. Even though the team has only won 10 games in two years, you never seem to hear any leaks about discontent in the locker room. No trying to throw the other guy under the bus. No...
