Tonight was supposed to be a coming out party of sorts for C.J. Spiller. Many in the fantasy community were expecting 30 carries for 500 yards, 20 touchdowns, a signed autograph from Justin Bieber (why, fantasy community, why?) and for him to save burning orphans from space aliens…give or take. Truthfully, I used to be a part of the Spiller fanclub and rooted for him harder than team Edward rooted for…crap, I’m not even going to pretend I know much about Twilight nor abuse google search for your pleasure to know what the ‘F’ I’m talking about in terms of Twi-Hardedness. Instead, I’m gonna break it down for you simply and gently. For as much as people rag on Fred Jackson and the Bills use of him, those two RBs serve a purpose to and for each other. They are both good RBs in their own right and splitting the carries makes the Bills a more dynamic offense than just giving 30 touches to either or. In many ways, having watched Spiller tonight, I was reminded of another running back...

GIVING HIM SOME LIP
Yes, yes he did. As the postgame interview with C.J. Spiller was wrapping up, Irvin was congratulating him and saying his goodbyes. Then for some reason, the hung and handshake weren’t enough. Irvin thought it appropriate to go in for the double kiss. By the way, the Bills won 19-14 and are now in second place in the AFC East. Filed under: Football, NFL, Video
Jerod Mayo fined $10,000 for hit on CJ Spiller. Brandon Spikes fined $25,000 for hit on Fitzpatrick.— Nick Underhill (@Nick_Underhill) November 16, 2012How stupid. Fitzpatrick was the one that caused Spikes to hit him in the head by tilting his head down. I've ranted enough on this. See below:Why I think Bills fans and players are hypocritesHow people are rushing to judgement on Spikes
As the Buffalo Bills held onto beat the Miami Dolphins on Thursday Night Football, Bills running back C.J. Spiller was the star of the game with 91 total rushing yards.
During the NFL Network postgame, former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michel Irvin was saying for goodbyes to CJ and well, this is what happened:

CJ Spiller is having a ridiculous year. He leads all eligible running backs in YPC by a yard and a half over Adrian Peterson, who is 2nd. Spiller is at 7.3. Peterson is at 5.8 He’s at 4.3 yards per carry after contact, which is about an average total yards per carry. Doug Martin is next at 3.7. He ranks 14th in the league in rushing yards despite...
While the Buffalo Bills have ruled running back Fred Jackson
(head) out for tonight’s game against the Miami Dolphins, C.J. Spiller (shoulder)
is probable to play and start for the injured Jackson according to the team’s
injury report. The Bills will also be without cornerback Aaron Williams (knee)
and defensive linemen Mark Anderson (knee) and Chris Kelsay (neck).
The 3-6 Buffalo Bills will be playing in their only prime-time game of the season when they host the 4-5 Miami Dolphins on Thursday night.
Buffalo will be playing not only to salvage their season, but also to earn their first win against an AFC East opponent in 2012.
The Dolphins on the other hand will be attempting to return to .500 on the season.
Most Intriguing Battle: C.J. Spiller...

Forget the teases, it is Know your enemy with PhinsPhocus.
1) If you were the Bills' defensive or offensive coordinator, how would you attack the Dolphins?
CJ Spiller, CJ Spiller then some more CJ Spiller. He is a special player and needs to get the ball (Editor's note: Tell that to Chan). Dolphins also tend to struggle against Tight ends so I would try and get Scott...

This battle will simply come down to the ability of one Ryan Fitzpatrick and Ryan Tannehill to avoid the crucial mistakes that have plagued them for so many games this season.
Two of the lesser appreciated...
Being realistic, the Buffalo Bills are done for the year. At 3-6 it’d take quite a turnaround to even compete for a Wildcard spot.
The Bills do face a weaker schedule for the next seven weeks, but to realistically compete they’d need to run the table.
Heading into Week 10, here are our True or False standings. In parentheses are last week’s records.

This week’s Water Cooler features QCS writers Mike Bundt, John Snyder, Mike Straw, Ryan Talbot and Brandon Hess.
Mike Bundt: What’s up everybody! Not the best result for the Bills over the weekend but I think we can all agree that we saw some progress out of the team. With the game in Ryan Fitzpatrick’s hands, Buffalo just couldn’t finish the game off.
Should Bills fans be...
In a crucial divisional bout where neither team can afford a loss, Thursday's primetime matchup between the Buffalo Bills and the Miami Dolphins shouldn't disappoint. While Miami is looking to snap a two-game losing streak and rebound from an embarrassing loss at home against Tennessee, the Bills are home for only the second time in six games in trying to right the ship....
Your hopes and dreams are coming near a conclusion. Are you a fantasy football playoff team? Are you a spoiler? Do you really have no idea what you are?
If you read Grantland, you would have come across an interesting piece on the Bills that was equal parts inspiring, depressing and gut wrenching. Among the many topics that the story covers is how Buffalo’s youth is moving away from their affiliation with the Bills and rooting for other NFL teams.
That will happen with 12 years of no playoffs and beyond mediocre teams.
Last week I went 9-4-1, and the week before I was 10-4. This week I am looking to start off hot and end on a streak. Let’s take a look at the week 11 picks and predictions.

CJ Spiller will finally be given a home game on PrimeTime, if any team deserves a win, it is the Bills. I like the Bills...
