59-year old head coach Chan Gailey is in his second year in charge and he has the Bills in the playoff hunt at 5-3.  Gailey has done this by amping up the offense for the Bills as they are averaging 368.5 yards per game on offense.  The defense is still a work in progress as they are giving up 381.1 yards per game.  The Bills are now 9-15 (37.5%) in Gailey’s first two years on the job, and he seems to have things going briskly into the right direction.
