    Here we are in week 5 with another AFC East rivalry game. And what a game it was! The Bills made the short trip to New Jersey to take on the New York Jets. Coming into the game, the Bills new they had to stop the NFL's rushing leader, Shamell Murray. And they did for the most part. Murray only put up 69 yards rushing.

    If you love defense, the first quarter of this game was for you. The Jets and Bills went back and forth. The score at the end of the first quarter was 0-0. To start the 2nd quarter, the Bills drove down the field on the back of Tavon Austin. He finally punched in the rock from a couple yards out. After a little more back and forth, the Jets audible to streak by Denard Tracy and he puts up a quick 6 points. Score at the half is 7-7. The Jets get the second half kick off and drive down the field to make the score 14-7, Jets. The Bills then began to put the ball in the hands of it's playmakers. Relying heavily on newly extended Charles Clay, the Bills drove down the field once again. On a bootleg, QB Beau Spriggs, looked for an open receiver and couldn't find one so he took it in himself from 4 yards out. The score early in the 4th is 14-14. The Jets then have another long drive and pound the ball in once more making the score 21-14, Jets. The Bills, not panicked down a TD late in the 4th, once again rely on their playmaking TE. The Bills punch it in and make the score 21-20. The Bills knew they had to win this game to stay in the hunt for the division so they decided to go for 2. Beau Spriggs, fakes the dive, throws the out route to Tavon Austin, he's hit at the 1 and falls into the endzone to take the lead. The score with 40 seconds left in the game is Bills 22-21. With time running down, the Bills are trying to bring pressure in hopes of hurrying the the passes of Jets QB, Johnathon Griffin. The Bills manage to keep the Jets out of field goal range. 6 seconds left, the Jets have one more shot. Johnathon Griffin fires the ball down the field. It's caught! The receiver falls down at the 1/2 yard line as time expires. The Bills win 22-21 in what could be the game of the week.

    The Bills gameball goes to Charles Clay. He was clutch when he was called on. He had 5 receptions for 140 yards.

    Another home game, another Buffalo loss. The Bills just seem to not be able to get anything going at home. They are now 0-4 in Buffalo. This week the Bills couldn't get anything going on either side of the ball. The Steelers dominated a struggling Bills offense and the defense couldn't get off the field as the Steelers continued to pick up almost every third down thrown their way. Final score was 22-0.

    In Week 9 the Bills traveled to Miami to take in the CPU Dolphins. As has been the theme the last 3 games, the Bills couldn't get anything going. Late in the 2nd quarter the Bills started to mount a nice drive. Nearing the redzone, 3 back to back penalties pushed the Bills out of field goal range. Heading into the 4th quarter, the score was 28-0 Dolphins. Spriggs and Austin got together and said if we want a chance to win this game, we have to put this team on our backs. And that's just what they did. Spriggs started throwing the ball all over the field while Austin accounted for 3 TD's. It was too little too late though. The Bills lose another heartbreaker 31-28.

    We are already in week 10 and the Bills have yet to win at home. They were at home once again to face off against good Redskins team. Rex Ryan came into the game not sure what to expect from this Redskins team. They have been on a hot streak as of late and the Bills have been very cold, losing 3 straight to very good teams.

    Things did not start of well for the Bills. On the second carry of the game, Austin coughed up the ball and the Redskins recovered. Luckily the Bills defense showed up this week. McClain stepped in front of a short crossing pattern and returned the interception 80ish yards for a Bills TD. Momentum started to swing the Bills way and stayed there most of the game. After a Redskins field goal halfway through the first, the Bills drove down the field and Austin punched in his first of 3 TD's. Score at the end of the first was 14-3, Bills.

    The Bills defense continued to be stout, forcing a fumble early in the 2nd quarter. That turnover came up empty as the Bills missed a short FG. Before the end of the half, TE Charles Clay 1 of his 2 receptions for a 37 yard TD. The score at the half Bills 21, Redskins 3.

    The second half brought an impressive drive by the Redskins, Alfred Morris was pounding the rock and QB Connor Taylor was completing pass after pass. The Redskins drove to the 1 yard line, handed the ball to Ray Rice and he fumbled into the endzone. The Bills recovered and took over at the 20 yard line.. The Bills couldn't get anything going after the turnover once more and had to punt the ball away. The Redskins would mount another good drive and end up having to kick a field goal. The 3rd quarter ends with the score of 21-6 Bills.

    In the 4th quarter the Bills were just trying to grind out the clock and keep the first downs coming. The heavy load on Austin might have been too much as he went down with a shoulder injury. Luckily it was nothing serious. Karlos Williams came in to pick up the slack. Need a first down on 3rd and medium, the Bills went to the air. Spriggs and Watkins hooked up and Watkins broke away for a 31 yard TD. The Redskins then took the ball and drove down the field and put the ball in the endzone. The 2 point conversion was good. The score was now 28-14. Once again the Bills get the ball back to try to run out the clock. Austin breaks free once again and scores his second TD of the game. Once again, the Redskins drive down the field and get another score. And once again, trying to run out the clock, Austin breaks free for his 3rd TD of the game. Finally the Bills can take a knee to end the game. Final score, Bills 42, Redskins 21.

    Week 11 brought another great matchup as the Bills traveled to Cleveland to take on the Browns. Unfortunately, this reporter was distracted by the Browns owner and did not take any notes on the game. So, we'll go from memory. The first half was a defensive struggle. Both teams struggled to get anything going. I recall there being a lot of field goals. In the second half, both teams came alive but the Bills were still relying heavily on their defense. The Bills picked off 4 passes and returned 2 of them for TD's. The 2nd half turned into a little bit of a shoot out and the Bills came up short. Final score was 35-28. After the game the Bills owner announced he is selling the team and moving to Philadelphia to take over the Eagles.
