TEAMS: Buffalo Bills
After years of giving Tinseltown the stiff arm, the NFL appears to be suddenly ready for a huddle. Sources tell Vulture that the league is on the verge of giving its usually difficult-to-obtain imprimatur to Paramount Pictures’ Kevin Costner drama Draft Day. Furthermore, it has also been mulling the unusual step of taking a financial stake in the $20 million seriocomic film.In Draft Day, which would be directed by Ivan Reitman, Costner would play a fictional general manager of the Buffalo Bills, perennially outgunned (and outspent) by downstate metropolitan behemoths like the New York Giants and Jets. Set over the course of a single day, it follows the GM as he parlays the first NFL draft pick (granted to the previous season’s worst team) into a series of trades that burnishes the team’s lackluster roster. Along the way, he must deal with his own family baggage as well as some surprising personal and romantic developments.For the NFL, this is unusual, to say the least. In 1999, dire...

Mario Williams blaming his poor play on his wrist injury

Buffalo Bills defensive end Mario Williams told ProFootballWeekly.com that his wrist injury is affecting his ability to get past opposing offensive lineman because he can’t use his hands the way he needs to.“I always get doubled, get chipped or get triples — it is what it is.

Are the wheels falling off the wagon of the Buffalo Bills?

After the events that transpired at Candlestick Park many Buffalo Bills fans are losing patience with a team that had shown so much promise going into the season. The Bills were absolutely manhandled at the hands both sides of the ball. The defensive front four including Mario Williams, Kyle Williams and Marcel Dareus was nonexistent with their pass rush and couldn’t apply any...

Bills plan on splitting reps between Spiller and Jackson

Spiller and Fred Jackson for this Sunday’s game against the Cardinals.“We need to get (the run game production) back and if we don’t get that back we’ll struggle offensively,” Gailey said, per BuffaloBills.com. “We’ve got to have a balanced running game to complement our passing game.

General manager Buddy Nix told the team's website Wednesday that the injury is not season-ending, but Anderson will miss significant time.

Leadership lacking at One Bills Drive

Same old Bills, I thought as I flipped the TV off and the movie on. You can make big changes and add supposed talent to the roster. You can claim the expectations are higher, but in the NFL all of that is akin to powdering a woman’s nose and calling her wife material before your first date. You still have to be right upstairs or nothing else matters. The unfortunate reality is...

Bills searching for answers on offense, too

The Buffalo Bills' horrendous defense over the last two games isn't the only problem. The Ryan Fitzpatrick-led offense has been inconsistent, at best, and now features an injury-depleted line that is expected to be down some starters this weekend. From bad to worse. Indeed, when the Bills (2-3) face Arizona (4-1) on Sunday, they will be short-handed and searching for answers...

Spiller & Jackson Will Continue To Split Carries

Buffalo coach Chan Gailey said that running backs Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller will continue split carries this week against Arizona.Fantasy Spin:The combination of Jackson and Spiller has averaged just 57.5 yards per game for the Bills over the last two weeks. Don't expect either player to have much of an impact Sunday versus a stingy Cardinals' run defense.

Field Goals - Questions to be answered

Things certainly got ugly in a hurry for the Bills. Shortly after dismantling the Browns, some were wondering where the Bills could end up on the other side of their showdowns with New England and San Francisco. Well, they came out 2-3, like many thought in the preseason. But the Bills didn’t end up 2-3 in the manner that most expected. A pair of lopsided losses has all...

Bills-Cardinals Preview

A visit from the defensively challenged Buffalo Bills might be what the banged-up Arizona Cardinals need to get back on track. Now missing their top two rushers, the Cardinals look to rebound from their first loss of the season while trying to hand the reeling Bills a third consecutive defeat Sunday. Arizona (4-1) was off to its best start in 38 years before being roughed up in...
