Protecting quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick could be an issue on Sunday when the Buffalo Bills (5-7) host St. Louis' strong pass rush.
Buffalo's offensive line is in patchwork mode after injuries to center Eric Wood and tackle Chris Hairston. In fact, two players - Sam Young and David Snow - will make their first NFL career starts vs. the Rams (5-6-1).
''It's insane how many guys we lose every year,'' said Kraig Urbik, who will start at center or right guard. ''It's not like guys are just wearing down. These are actual, physical injuries.''
The Rams have the NFL's fourth-best sack total (34) and those numbers might spike up Sunday. St. Louis is paced by former first-round picks Robert Quinn and Chris Long, who have registered 8 1/2 and seven sacks, respectively.
''They bring a lot of pressure,'' said Snow, a 6-foot-4, 303-pound rookie out of Texas who can play center and guard. ''It's evident that they...

John Snyder: Bills 19-14
Low scoring game. St. Louis is the better team but the weather will give the dome team some problem and the Bills will win an ugly game that is now SOLD OUT
Ryan Talbot: Bills 27-19
The Bills win late with a field goal. If Danny Amendola plays, he has a field day on Buffalo, but the defense does enough to keep the Rams out of the end zone.
Lead writer Nick St. Denis and AFC East Daily contributors Dan Begnoche and Sean Donovan pick the Buffalo Bills' contest with the visiting NFC's St. Louis Rams. Nick's take: Only two quarterbacks have been sacked more times than Sam Bradford, so the Bills' Mario Williams-led front-seven, despite missing Chris Kelsay, should have plenty of opportunities to get into...
Flash back to August for a moment. The defense was expected to serve as the primary strength for the Bills in 2012. While question marks lingered at linebacker and in the defensive backfield, the revamped defensive line was expected to be the centerpiece of an elite unit.
Flash forward to week 13 and the Bills defense is still digging out from the bottom portion of the league’s...
The St. Louis Rams will play against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday at 1 p.m. EST. Both teams had expectations before the season began that they would be chasing after a wild card spot when Week 14 rolled around. Instead both teams find themselves riddled with questions.
St. Louis has not addressed the issues at wide receiver and have been inconsistent throughout the year. The player...
