The Bills enter Week 9 at 3-4 and facing the Houston Texans, arguably the best team in the AFC. Before we get to this week’s questions here are our updated standings:
Rob Quinn: 8-2
Brandon Hess: 19-11
Ryan Talbot: 23-12
Michael Bundt: 21-14
Mike Straw: 15-10
1. Houston has not given up a run of 20 yards this year. Will C.J. Spiller or Fred Jackson be the first to do so?
Mike Straw: True. Spiller is averaging over 7 yards a carry. While the Bills won’t have many bright spots tomorrow, he will be one of them.
Michael Bundt: True, Spiller is one of the best running backs in the NFL and is super dynamic. It’s hard to see him not breaking out at least one large run.
Ryan Talbot: False. I think they may have a big play or two in the passing game, but not in the running game.
2. The Bills will score 14 points or more.
Bundt: True. The Bills always seem to score even when they get blown out. I expect them to pass a lot as they play from behind.
Talbot: True. The Bills should be able to put up at least 14 points, regardless of how talented the Texans defense is.
3. Mario Williams will record a sack on his former team.
Straw: Hahaha, False
Bundt: False. As much as I want to believe that his wrist operation will help out his play, I’m not buying it until I see him improve on the field.
Talbot: True. I’m giving him the benefit of the doubt after his wrist surgery.
4. Arian Foster will have at least 150 all-purpose yards.
Bundt: True. I would say true for this question against almost any team in the NFL but it’s an easy answer considering he’s going up against the Bills.
Talbot: True. The Bills haven’t shown the ability to stop talented running backs consistently.
5. Stevie Johnson will end with at least 75 yards receiving.
Bundt: False. I think Stevie will have a decent afternoon but will fall just short of 75 receiving yards.
Talbot: True. Fitzpatrick will look for him early and often.

BEST OF MAXIM
Coming off their bye week, it’s honestly still not clear whether Buffalo remains a contender in the AFC.Sure, their pitiful showing against New York, San Francisco and New England, coupled with their needless loss to the Titans has many fans already throwing up their hands in defeat, but the fat lady isn’t crooning quite yet.The Bills are just a game below .500, they have the...
LOVE THE HATE
Buffalo Bills defensive lineman Mario Williams made his first trip back to Houston to face his former team and said afterward he enjoyed being booed.
The Houston Texans are still perfect against the AFC. They get another chance this weekend to prove they can beat one of the best teams in the NFC, too.
Houston (7-1) remained unbeaten against conference opponents with a 21-9 victory over Buffalo and now moves on to face Chicago (7-1) at Soldier Field on Sunday night. In their only game against an NFC team this season, the Texans...

HOUSTON - In a homecoming bloated with rancor and disdain, Bills defensive end Mario Williams enjoyed his one moment in the spotlight with a second-quarter sack of Texans quarterback Matt Schaub and a taunting finger wag at the Texans' bench. That was the most memorable impression former Texans player Williams left on Sunday at Reliant Stadium, a development Texans fans surely...
HOUSTON (21) d BUFFALO (9)
The Headline: Texans corral the Bills for an easy home win
Much had been made about Mario Williams’ return to Houston where he spent the first six years of his career. The split between Williams and the front office was far from amicable by the sounds of it, as they reportedly made no effort to even retain Williams, something which did not...
This is probably the most simple statistic you will see in this series, but there is no need to complicate something that is so simple and obvious. CJ Spiller and Fred Jackson only combined for 12 total carries on Sunday afternoon. Twelve. Combined. The 2nd ranked rush offense in the league* and 27th ranked passing offense in the league attempted 12 runs and 38 passes on Sunday afternoon...
Bills head coach Chan Gailey mentioned that WR Stevie Johnson is dealing with a “bad” contusion in his thigh.
“He got hit in the thigh,” said Gailey, via BuffaloBills.com. “He’s got a bad thigh bruise is what happened to him. He played through it and it depends on how much it swells and how much of it drains into the lower part of his leg. All of those kinds of things...
HOUSTON (AP) -- The Houston Texans are still looking for a challenger in the AFC after improving to 7-0 in their conference with a 21-9 win over Buffalo. Houston's only defeat so far came against Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers in a humiliating nationally televised game.
The Texans (7-1) get another chance this weekend to show a prime-time audience how they stack up...
This is the start of our SOTT Mid Season Report card and we will run through every position group for the Houston Texans. We focus on the offensive line in this post and give our thoughts on the position group.
The Offensive Line Grades
Duane Brown: He gave up his first sack of the season against the Buffalo Bills but he has been as good you can ask an NFL left tackle...
Houston Texans RB Arian Foster should have a huge game against a Bills defense that has yet to stop the run this season.
Fresh off the bye week in what could turn out to be the best season in the history of the team the Houston Texans go up against the Buffalo Bills in the return of the Texans 2006 1st overall pick Mario Williams. Williams who became the highest paid defensive player...
The Buffalo Bills have to be one of the more confusing teams as we hit the midseason point in the 2012 NFL season. From time to time, the Bills look like a playoff team. At other times, they closer resemble a team who is worthy of a top three draft pick. They are that frustrating to predict.
At this point, all we have learned that we can predict with the Bills is that they will continue...
