Spiller's big day rings hollow in loss - BuffaloBills.com
"With six games to handle the mantle of feature running back C.J. Spiller has already shown some flashes of the kinds of plays he can deliver with the ball in his hands. On Sunday he flashed early and late and put together the most productive day in his young career. The only problem was he did it in a loss that extended Buffalo’s lengthy losing streak."

Spiller's career day spoiled by Bills' loss - Niagara Gazette
"I’m just trying to make plays," he said. "I knew what I had to do coming into the game. I knew what I wanted to try and correct from last game. Obviously I wasn’t making enough people miss last game, so that’s something I wanted to correct."

Offense seems to take step back with each week - Dunkirk | The Observer
"Say what you want about injuries, that excuse doesn't explain why Ryan Fitzpatrick's accuracy and decision making has seemed to dwindle. Injuries don't explain why the play calling has been questionable at best, and injuries don't describe why receivers David Nelson and Stevie Johnson have become nearly invisible."

SIMON: Bills Leave Me Numb, Again - WGR 550
"I’ll close with crazy stat #2 with thanks in part to Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News. He pointed out the Bills began last season 0-8 and might finish this season 0-9. As odd as that is, I pointed out that in between, that same team compiled a 9-6 record. 0-8 to 9-6 to potentially 0-9? It could only happen here."

As losses mount, Bills' draft position improves - The Buffalo News
"After opening the season with an amazing 16 takeaways in the first five games (against just five giveaways) the Bills have just 10 takeaways in the next nine games (and 21 giveaways). Specifically during the seven-game losing streak, the Bills have a turnover ratio of minus-9, with eight takeaways and 17 giveaways."

"Even during the Bills' losing streak, they remained ranked ahead of the Dolphins. That should no longer be the case after Miami completed the season sweep of Buffalo on Sunday. The Bills are in shambles. It's a shame how much this team has fallen apart after showing promise during a 5-2 start. This team has a lot of improvements to make in the offseason. "
