Mario Williams is expected to have a major impact in Buffalo this season. On Sunday, he was a nonfactor. The man the Bills signed to a $100 million contract over the offseason had only one tackle. The Jets completely had their way with the defense Williams is supposed to anchor this season, smashing the Bills 48-28.
Naturally, it was the replacement officials’ faults that Williams put up a stinker in his debut.
“Pass blocking doesn’t consist of illegal hands to the face just about every play, which, when somebody tells you that, and you’re five yards away from it, and you walk away like you don’t see him telling you you’re getting punched in the face every time, then that dictates somebody like myself having to take care of that on my own,” Williams said according to ESPN.com. “There’s definitely, with the situation that we’re in with the refs like that, and then you don’t listen or you don’t call it one time out of 20 that were out there. That’s really disheartening from that point.

During the season opener game between the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets, fans created excitement in the upper level seats.While the Jets destroyed the Bills 48-24, Sunday afternoon, fans from both teams began to fight. In the video (below) fans began shoving each other. It appears that about seven people fell down -- all at the same time. Then, at the :34 mark, you can see in...
Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson left the game in the second quarter today after a hit to the knee. The RB was the leading fantasy RB last year until he sustained an injury. His return is questionable. Jackson took the hit as the Bills trailed the Jets 21-0 in the second quarter. He had a great year as a fantasy player last year in Jackson’s absence.
Second year running back C...
Buffalo Bills running back Fred Jackson left yesterday’s game against the Jets during the second quarter yesterday with an apparent knee injury.
It has now been revealed that he will be out 3-4 weeks after his MRI earlier today.
The injury is to his lateral collateral ligament. It is unknown yet if the ligament is torn or just sprained.
Luckily for the Bills, C.J. Spiller filled...
While ESPN analyst Damien Woody may have been praising the Buffalo Bills throughout the offseason, even going as far to predict that they would make the NFL Playoffs after signing free agent DE Mario Williams, the retired offensive lineman for the New England Patriots, Detroit Lions and New York Jets now has changed his tune on the biggest signing over the past year.
Buffalo Bills receiver David Nelson is expected to miss the rest of the season with a torn ligament in his right knee.
And the news is a little more encouraging for running back Fred Jackson after tests on his right knee came up inconclusive. Doctors will now wait between seven and 10 days to conduct further tests to determine the severity of Jackson's injury.
Two people familiar...

C.J. Spiller will now step in and start...
The National Football League is all about opportunities and after Fred Jackson suffered an injury Sunday against the Jets that will keep him out of the lineup for almost a month, it is time for C.J. Spiller to take advantage of the biggest opportunity of his career.
In a game that was pretty much over by the time Jackson exited the game, Spiller was electrifying, as he torched...
Well that was one pathetic performance by the Buffalo Bills.
Obviously, the season is not over. But that was not a positive look to start the year. We'll see what they can do against Kansas City next week.
Watching the game made me realize once again why I love hockey so much more. Hockey is continuous action, and anything can happen at any time. Football is stop, go, stop...
A primary foil of the 2011 Buffalo Bills was the injury bug. It would seem as if 2012 Bills may suffer from the injury blues yet again.
With Fred Jackson shelved for the better portion of the next three to five weeks and David Nelson lost for the year, the Bills have lost two major weapons and will need to patch together the holes in their offense to keep the ball rolling...
On the latest edition of Out of Bounds, we look back one more time at the Falcons loss and look ahead to the Buffalo Bills.
After recovering from a broken fibula suffered last November, the Buffalo running back was hoping to prove his impressive start to the year last season was no fluke. Unfortunately Jackson's right leg is once again an issue after he suffered a knee injury after taking a hit from Jets safety LaRon Landry. The MRI performed Monday was inconclusive and a specific diagnosis...
Welcome to the first edition of Buddy Nixon Live! We’re on the field, Rich Gannon and Marv Albert on the call. Check the inactives list here.
The Bills defense will see the field first, which I think most Bills fans can get on board with. It would be great to punch them in the mouth early, get a stop, and get field position.

It’s wasn’t the season opener the Bills were hoping for.
That’s about all that can be said about the Buffalo Bills 48-28 loss to the New York Jets on Sunday afternoon.
In a game that was ugly from the get-go, the Bills could never get going and trailed by as...
