Buffalo @ San Diego   The Bills lost to Tennessee to extend their slide to five games, while the Chargers smoked the Jaguars.   Ryan Fitzpatrick had 288 yards and a TD and C.J. Spiller had his best game of the season by far, rushing for 85 yards and a TD. Steve Johnson had a score as well for the second consecutive game.   Philip Rivers has been an interception machine for the better part of the season, but the Jacksonville game was his second in a row where that side of his ledger remained clean. He’s quietly put together a pretty effective stretch, with four multi-TD games out of his last five, during which he’s thrown 12 TDs and averaged 284 yards. Ryan Mathews had 112 yards and a TD on the ground against the Jaguars, and Mike Tolbert hit paydirt as well.   The Chargers have allowed multiple TD passes in 6 of their last 7 games, so Fitzpatrick looks like a good play if you dare trust him. More than likely you won’t have to since you’ve gotten to the playoffs without him, but i...

Bills-Chargers black out in SoCal

If you’re a Bills fan in Southern California you won’t be able to watch Sunday’s game against the Chargers on regular network TV.

Chandler unlikely to play

Bills TE Scott Chandler might miss his first game of the season this week. Chandler did not practice for a second straight day along with CB Aaron Williams. “Scott didn’t practice,” said head coach Chan Gailey. “Aaron probably has a better chance than Scott right now.” If Chandler can’t go the offensive staff is expected to make use of both Lee Smith and Mike Caussin...

Bills want swagger back

The Bills are desperate to end their five game losing streak. When the streak began they insisted they just had to get back to playing loose.

With the postseason a bleak picture right now players are still hoping to get...
