St. Louis Rams
After rough stretches, the Buffalo Bills and St. Louis Rams are back in the playoff conversation.
That could change for one of them Sunday at Ralph Wilson Stadium.
After splitting their first six games and being tied for the AFC East lead, the Bills dropped three in a row. Buffalo, though, has won two of three to improve to 5-7 and is tied with Miami and the Jets, with all three in pursuit of Indianapolis (8-4), Pittsburgh (7-5) and Cincinnati (7-5) for the two wild-card spots.

"What happened before is in the past, and we just have to keep pushing," defensive end Mario Williams said. "We are still there. Even though nobody else thinks of it that way, we do."
The Rams (5-6-1) are in a similar position in the NFC, needing to move past a handful...

The San Francisco 49ers announced Tuesday that they have signed linebacker Alex Hoffman-Ellis to the practice squad, and released safety Eddie Whitley.

Flash back to August for a moment. The defense was expected to serve as the primary strength for the Bills in 2012. While question marks lingered at linebacker and in the defensive backfield, the revamped defensive line was expected to be the centerpiece of an elite unit.
Flash forward to week 13 and the Bills defense is still digging out from the bottom portion of the league’s...
(Author's note: I came up with the general theme and "Stop it." idea halfway through writing this. Hence why it seems a bit disorganized. Still in better shape than the Bills, I think.)

Yes, the Bills making the playoffs are about as slim as me winning the NYS Powerball. They are 5-7 and have a great shot at being one game below .500 with a win. Hooray! This week, they take on the St. Louis Rams. As we do every week, we are joined by the opposing team's blogger. The fine folks over at Rams Herd answer all my questions about...
