There’s is a dim, distant footing in the race with many similarly placed teams standing in their way, but anything is possible with eight games left to play.

E.J. Manuel is not capable of helping the 2013 Buffalo Bills

Hobbled Buffalo Bills quarterback E.J. Manuel will not play Sunday when the Kansas City Chiefs visit Orchard Park. The 23-year-old Manuel suffered a sprained right LCL on October 3 in a 37-24 loss to the Browns (3-2) in Cleveland.

Week 9 Fantasy Football Weekend Injury Report: CJ Spiller

It appears that Buffalo Bills RB C.J. Spiller will suit up for Sunday’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs. However, he is still technically considered a game time decision despite the fact that he was listed as full participant in practice on Friday and is listed as probable. Injury Outlook: Spiller has gone through this song and dance before, attempting to play through a high...

Buffalo Bills: 2013 Week 9 NFL Power Rankings (#26)

Last week: 24 (-2) Record: 3-5 There’s no shame in getting blown in New Orleans, where the Saints have won and covered in their last 13 instances under Sean Payton. The Bills haven’t been the same team on the road this season as they have been at home, where they’ve beaten a pair of top-15 teams on these Power Rankings (Carolina, Baltimore) and almost beat another pair of top...

Beyond the stats: The Buffalo Bills midseason awards

The Bills have reached the halfway mark of the season and it’s time to dole out some fake midseason awards. The team has shown improvement over their past years at times, but their record isn’t much improved. Luckily for them, the schedule in the second half looks to be easier than the first, which could allow them to finish the season with a record better than their current...

Tuel is Bills’ likely starter against a menacing Chiefs defense

Protecting the passer – whomever it may be – is a top priority for the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. The Bills face a Kansas City Chiefs team that ranks No. 1 in the NFL in fewest points allowed and in quarterback sacks.

Kansas City Chiefs at Buffalo Bills: 2013 Week 9 NFL Pick

Kansas City Chiefs (8-0) at Buffalo Bills (3-5) Damnit. I was so ready to pick an upset here for Buffalo. Buffalo is better than their record, especially at home. In 4 home games, they’ve beaten a pair of top-15 teams on these Power Rankings (Carolina, Baltimore) and almost beat another pair of top-10 teams (New England, Cincinnati). I don’t think the Chiefs are significantly...

Getting Defensive: Is the Bills Pass Rush Elite?

Mario is super againLast summer when the Bills out bid all other teams for the services of Mario Williams, it looked like Buffalo had added an elite pass rusher and bolstered a stale defensive front. The massive deal included $50 million in guaranteed money and could gross up to $100 million over six years. It was the largest deal ever for a defensive player and while it raised some...
