Buffalo: The Bills come out of their bye week with a chance to pull within a game of the AFC East leading New England Patriots, who are on bye this week. The only problem is that the Bills will have to beat the Houston Texans this week to do it.The Texans sit at 6-1, and own the No. 3 defense in the entire league in yardage allowed per game. Unfortunately for Ryan Fitzpatrick and his teammates, the Bills rank just 19th in total offense, including just 29th in passing. Ouch.If you’re missing Tom Brady due to the bye week, now’s not the time to pick up and play Fitzpatrick, as this game has turnovers and sacks galore written all over it.Not like you’ll get a whole lot of production in the running game either, as the Texans rank 3rd against the rush and have not allowed a rushing TD all season long. With the paltry production they’ll allow being split between C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson, neither are recommended starts.In the passing game, pretty much the only one you can get away wit...

Unfortunately, their investment has field to pay dividends. In fact, Fitzpatrick has been rather disappointing since the Bills signed him to that lucrative extension. Now, it almost...
The NFL has quickly turned into a passing league. If your team doesn’t have a franchise quarterback, your team is most likely going to be watching the playoffs from home. However, there are some teams that run the ball quite well. Which teams have the best running back tandems in the league?

The Bills came off a devastating 34-35 loss to the Tennessee Titans at Ralph Wilson Stadium two weeks entering the bye week. A game that, with a win, would have put them in a tie for first...
When the Bills made the decision to lockup QB Ryan Fitzpatrick to a seven-year, $62 million contract after only a 4-2 start to the 2011 season, it was met with some warranted concern. Since then, Fitzpatrick has lead them to a 5 – 12 record that was highlighted by a completed unacceptable interception that cost them a win over the Titans.
Bills GM Buddy Nix seemed to suggest...
Coming off their bye week, it’s honestly still not clear whether Buffalo remains a contender in the AFC.Sure, their pitiful showing against New York, San Francisco and New England, coupled with their needless loss to the Titans has many fans already throwing up their hands in defeat, but the fat lady isn’t crooning quite yet.The Bills are just a game below .500, they have the...

When the Buffalo Bills take on the Houston Texans this weekend, they'll likely do so with rookie second-round pick Cordy Glenn re-installed at left tackle.

The Houston Texans are back at the game of football and are heading into the halfway point of the NFL season.

Here are the QCS Staff predictions for Sunday’s matchup featuring the Buffalo Bills and Houston Texans:
Mike Straw: Houston 45-10
The Texans are the class of the AFC and should have no problem walking over the lowly Bills. The season is starting to tailspin for Buffalo, and this will just be another branch, or even log, that they hit on the way down.
Ryan Talbot: Texans 38-13...
