My hatred for the Cowboys isn’t as strong as it used to be since the 90′s but it will back in full force this Sunday as the Bills visit Dallas in a must win for Buffalo. The Bills can’t afford to lose this weekend because this will certainly drop them out of the first place tie in the tight AFC East standings. With a win the Bills will be tied in first place with either the Patriots or the Jets, as they face each other on Sunday night.
The offense will look to regroup after their tough loss last week against the Jets and the defense will look to stop high octane RB DeMarco Murray from running all over the field as he did against St.Louis in week 7 , he ran for a franchise best 253 yards! I hope this game does not come down to a field goal for Buffalo. Nine year vet, Rian Lindell is out for this game after injuring his shoulder on a tackle in last weeks game. Buffalo has signed journeyman Dave Rayner to replace Lindell. Although Rayner has seen some action in the last few years, I would feel more comfortable with Lindell back there.
In another roster move the Bills have placed Pro Bowl nose tackle Kyle Williams on the injured reserve list. This doesn’t mean he is gone for the year but it is likely that he will be.
Buffalo will need to string together a few wins down the home stretch if they want to make the playoffs. With teams like the Bengals, Jets and Ravens playing better these days, it would seem like Buffalo will have to win their division to make it in. Another huge test for our Bills… the only option is to WIN! You’re able to bounce back from a loss, you’ve done it twice this year!
