Found November 04, 2013 on This Given Sunday:
Nine weeks of stupid already in the books? It's hard to believe how many stupid things happen in a flash. As we jump into the second half of the 2013 NFL regular season, let's break down all of the stupidity from Week 9. The stupidest play call You're Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett. C.J. Spiller is working on a 100-yard day. He and Fred Jackson are on their way to a combined 193 rushing yards. You're leading the unbeaten Chiefs in a low-scoring affair in which field goals are probably going to matter quite a lot. Third-and-goal from the one-yard line...and you have your rookie third-string quarterback throw out of shotgun? C'mon, dude. The result? A 100-yard pick six.  The stupidest officiating call Welcome to the NFL in 2013, where this is roughing the passer... Ron Winter was pushing it with that one. The definition of incidental contact. The stupidest spot This was ruled a first down in the Carolina-Atlanta game... ...

C.J. Spiller Looks Electric vs. Chiefs

Bills running back C.J. Spiller looked rejuvenated Sunday against the Chiefs after sitting out Week 8 to heal his ankle sprain.Fantasy Spin:Spiller was still sporting a limp, but he was able to cut effectively and galloped for 116 rushing yards on 12 carries. He added 39 receiving yards on two catches. Fantasy owners now have to hope his ankle responds from the expanded workload...

PHOTO: Bills fan writes-in Kiko Alonso for every position on ballot

Through nine games, Buffalo Bills rookie linebacker Kiko Alonso, a second round pick from Oregon, has proven he can do it all on the field.  He roams sideline to sideline.  He’ll put a hurtin’ on a running back who thinks he has a hole.  And he’s adequate in coverage.  According to one Bills fan, he would make a decent city court judge. On Tuesday, Election Day in America...

EJ Manuel is expected to start this week against the Steelers

Bills QB Manuel cleared to return

EJ Manuel to the rescue? The Buffalo Bills rookie quarterback on Monday declared himself ready to return after missing four weeks with a sprained right knee. All that's standing in Manuel's way is a green light from coach Doug Marrone. And that won't likely come until later in the week, and after Manuel gets a chance to test his knee. The team returns to practice Wednesday...

C.J. Spiller is Active

Bills running back C.J. Spiller is active for Week 9Fantasy Spin:The return of Spiller will certainly help the Bills as they face the undefeated Chiefs, but having to split carries with Fred Jackson makes Spiller a flex option, at best, for Week 9.

The Curious Case Of Matt Flynn

The concept of the ‘contract year’ is prevalent in professional sports. Players commonly outperform expectations in the final year of their contracts, setting themselves up for a tasty payday. However, career backup quarterback Matt Flynn has found himself in an intriguing, albeit soul crushing predicament as the victim of a much more rarely occurring phenomenon: the contract game...

Bills QB E.J. Manuel Cleared To Practice, Could Return In Week 10

Bills rookie QB E.J. Manuel has been cleared to return to the practice field, per Mike Rodak. Still, the decision as to whether or not Manuel will play against the Steelers in Week 10 is up to HC Doug Marrone. “Definitely looking forward to getting [back to] practice full course, getting as many reps as Coach allows me to get,” Manuel said Monday. “It’s his decision at...

E.J. Manuel Cleared To Resume Practicing

Buffalo's franchise QB E.J. Manuel has been cleared to practice, according to Bills beat reporter Mike Rodak.Fantasy Spin:That means he could play as soon as Week 10. On the other hand they could be conservative in a season that is already lost and wait as far as after their Week 12 bye. His fantasy owners as well as those of Stevie Johnson and Robert Woods would like an early return.

Bills’ Johnson won’t hear talk of moral victories, injury excuses

The Buffalo Bills’ record in Stevie Johnson’s five-plus seasons with the team is 32-57. You can understand, then, why Johnson has zero patience for any talk of “moral victories,” including after the latest loss Sunday to the Kansas City Chiefs. “We felt like we had the game. We controlled the game, and we ended up coming out with another loss,” Johnson said Monday....

Bills HC Doug Marrone Is So Upset After Chiefs Loss He Wont Pet His Dog

I’ve heard about doing some crazy things in the midst of defeat, but giving your dog the cold shoulder is just down right wrong. “I’m pissed. I’m going to use that type of energy,” Marrone told reporters, via “I’m going to go home, not talk to anybody, just shut it down. I’m going to be […]

Bills deviate from run game late in loss to Chiefs

The Buffalo Bills' run game had a lot pressure on its shoulders in taking on an undefeated Kansas City Chiefs team with a legit run defense.

Spiller and Fred Jackson had amassed nearly 200 yards on the ground and had carried...
