  http://blogs.buffalonews.com/press-coverage/2012/09/mike-martz-insists-ryan-fitzpatrick-is-playoff-caliber.html Follow @Dan Vasta and like Gridiron Grit on Facebook  The amount of points that the Bills have given up is atrocious and it cannot be for real, but wake up because the points are coming in bunches. They are 31st in the NFL allowing 35.2 PPG and the playmakers come at a premium price these days in Buffalo. Nick Barnett is the leading tackler, but the defensive line has been atrocious against the run. Allowing 171.8 yards per game (30th) are silly numbers and it may be a stiff task to even slow down an Arizona team that has lost its top two rushers. Ryan Williams and Beanie Wells did not find much running room when they were healthy and now Lerod Stephens-Howling and William Powell will have to do something their talented teammates could not do. The Cardinals are once again jokers ranking 31st in the NFL averaging a pedestrian 63.4 yards per game. Arizona would love if the...

Furthermore, it has also been mulling the unusual step of taking a financial stake in the $20 million seriocomic film.In...

Bills DE Mark Anderson to miss significant time

According to Buffalo Bills general manager Buddy Nix, defensive end Mark Anderson is expected to miss significant time with a knee injury.“Well he’s going to miss significant time,” Bills GM Buddy Nix told Buffalobills.com. “We don’t know exactly how long it’ll be yet.

Mario Williams blaming his poor play on his wrist injury

Buffalo Bills defensive end Mario Williams told ProFootballWeekly.com that his wrist injury is affecting his ability to get past opposing offensive lineman because he can’t use his hands the way he needs to.“I always get doubled, get chipped or get triples — it is what it is. The biggest thing that I have to do is to use my hands and overcome the whole wrist thing,” he said...

Bills GM Nix: DE Anderson to miss significant time

Buffalo Bills defensive end Mark Anderson is out indefinitely after hurting his left knee in what becomes the latest blow for a porous defense. General manager Buddy Nix told the team's website Wednesday that the injury is not season-ending, but Anderson will miss significant time. Nix said Anderson is visiting specialist James Andrews to determine the severity of the injury...

Bills searching for answers on offense, too

The Buffalo Bills' horrendous defense over the last two games isn't the only problem. The Ryan Fitzpatrick-led offense has been inconsistent, at best, and now features an injury-depleted line that is expected to be down some starters this weekend. From bad to worse. Indeed, when the Bills (2-3) face Arizona (4-1) on Sunday, they will be short-handed and searching for answers...

Arizona Cardinals vs. Buffalo Bills all-time series

As the Arizona Cardinals prepare to welcome the Buffalo Bills into University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale Sunday, let's take a look at the all-time series between the two clubs. Buffalo leads, 5-4, and have won four of the last five games. The last time the two squads met, Kurt Warner tossed a pair of touchdown passes to Larry Fitzgerald to lead the Red Birds to a 41-17 rout...

Small Stephens-Howling gets big role for Cardinals

(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated.) By BOB BAUM AP Sports Writer The Arizona Cardinals have a drastic shortage of running backs, just when they are about to meet a Buffalo defense that has been highly susceptible to the run. Beanie Wells is long gone with a turf toe, with his earliest return Nov. 25. Now Ryan Williams is out for the season with a left shoulder injury that required...

Fantasy Spin on Remains of Cardinals Backfield

Ryan Williams is cursed. That seems official now. Beanie Wells is made of class - also official. La'rod Stephens-Howling has a ridiculous first name, hyphenated last name and 12 rushes for 1 year. In case you are keeping score at home that's an amazing 0.1 ypc average. That leaves rookie rusher William Powell who led the rushing in the presesaon but suffered a head injury in week 5.

Leach Tells Seniors to Walk the Plank

In the four seasons before Mike Leach's arrival in Pullman Washington State was 9-40, and only six of those wins came against FBS programs. A decade without a bowl game, coupled with the rises of Stanford and Oregon in the Pac 12 North, had left the Cougars program in disarray with no viable recruiting pipeline. Nobody was expecting miracles from Leach. That doesn't mean...
