St. Louis Rams
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Sam Bradford threw a 13-yard touchdown pass to Brandon Gibson with 48 seconds remaining as the St. Louis Rams nipped the Buffalo Bills 15-12 at soggy Ralph Wilson Stadium. The Rams, who won three straight for the first time in six seasons, improved to 6-6-1 and kept alive their playoff hopes. The Bills dropped to 5-8 and are almost assured of missing the playoffs for a 13th straight season. Bradford completed 19 of 39 passes for 209 yards and one score. Defenses dominated on this day as the teams combined for 15 punts and just two touchdowns. The Bills took a 3-0 lead near the end of the first quarter on a 35-yard field goal by Rian Lindell. The kick capped 10-play, 56-yard drive and included a 15-yard screen pass from Ryan Fitzpatrick to C.J. Spiller and a 15-yard pass to tight end Scott Chandler. Buffalo was driving for another score on its next series, but the march ended when Rams safety Quintin Mikell punched the ball out of Fred Jackson's ...
BEST OF MAXIM
Sam Bradford and the St Louis Rams are growing up before our eyes. Once again they found themselves entering the halftime break, trailing on the road despite a strong defensive effort, trying to dig themselves out of a hole of their own making on offense. Once again, the Rams made adjustments to their gameplan, and got big plays from someone other than Danny Amendola to secure a...
Buffalo Bills fans weren't expecting tight end Lee Smith to leap into the stands after he caught a touchdown pass in the third quarter of Sunday's game at Ralph Wilson Stadium. As a result, the fans didn't catch Smith, as he was expecting them to do, and Smith fell backwards into the stands in an embarrassing touchdown celebration fail.
Bills fans need to get with...
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...
It's one thing to throw on the towel; for Chan Gailey, he might want to wait until the bell rings. After losing to go 5-8, Gailey said on Monday morning: “The playoffs are out of the picture for us now,” Gailey said in his post-game press conference. If the Bills win their last 3 games and get help from around the AFC, they still have a shot at the sixth seed with an 8-8 record.
St. Louis Rams coach Jeff Fisher has announced that wide
receiver Danny Amendola is shaping up to be a game-time decision Sunday against
the Buffalo Bills, while running back Stephen Jackson is probable to play.
WR Danny Amendola (foot), LB Mario Haggan (elbow) are questionable. Coach Jeff Fisher said Amendola will be a game time decision.

Rams receiver Chris Givens led the team with 10 targets but finished fourth in receiving yardage with 25 yards on three catches Sunday at Buffalo.Fantasy Spin:Givens has received increased attention from Sam Bradford with Danny Amendola out. That trend continued Sunday but it didn't amount to much for Givens owners, though he did catch a two-point conversion in the fourth quarter.
Not in the way the so-called “theme song” for the team had intended. The Buffalo Bills blew a six-point lead at halftime against a sub par Rams team at home, and were getting booed more than cheered for a good part of the game. Head Coach Chan Gailey claimed he was “scared” to kick a 52-yard field goal after Rian Lindell showed he still has strength in that veteran leg...
Michael Vick may end up being a free agent after the season. Would the Buffalo Bills have interest in signing him if he's available?
C.J. Spiller leads all NFL running backs in yards per carry, but he's certainly no threat to lead the league in carries.Spiller, the Buffalo Bills' most explosive player (and probably their best player, too) was given just seven rushes and one reception to work with Sunday against the St. Louis Rams. That wasn't enough for him, or for the team, as Buffalo (5-8) lost 15...
As Bills fans saw Buffalo fall once again in disappointing fashion yesterday, they must’ve been thinking to themselves, why does this always happen to us?
With a chance to get back into the playoff race, the Bills wasted a golden opportunity at a win, allowing a last minute touchdown pass to Sam Bradford as they fell to the Rams 15-12.
What couldn’t be seen in the box score that...
ORCHARD PARK -- The National Football League is a league of finishers, according to Buffalo Bills linebacker Bryan Scott. "The teams that know how to finish, win," he said. "And the teams that don't, lose." Scott's theory passed muster Sunday afternoon at soggy Ralph Wilson Stadium as the St. Louis Rams, behind quarterback Sam Bradford, finished with...
It’s safe to call it a season Bills fans. At 5-8, the Buffalo Bills are likely looking at another losing season. On that depressing note, let’s take a look at 6 Things I Bill-ieve following Buffalo’s loss to the Rams.
1. Mario Williams is Worth Every Penny
On Sunday, Mario Williams notched another sack, taking him to 10.5 on the season. He became the first Buffalo Bill since...
The shock of reading the headline may match the stunning news of hearing that Luke Skywalker was the son of Darth Vader or that the chick in the Crying Game wasn't a chick or that Ned Stark's head would be rolling down the street in Kings Landing or that Bruce Willis is in fact, dead.
This has been the biggest complaint so far for Gailey. In 2010, the Bills...
