They say that each week in the NFL is a test. The Buffalo Bills passed their first test of the season in Week 1 with flying colors, dominating the 2010 AFC West champion Kansas City Chiefs 41-7 at Arrowhead Stadium. The Oakland Raiders passed a test, too, winning their eighth straight divisional contest in Denver to move to 1-0 on the season.

Today, these two teams will be each other's second strong test of the season. For Oakland, they're playing a surprising Bills team on a very short work week in a time zone where they've lost four straight games. For Buffalo, they're playing the unquestioned best team in the AFC West, and one that plays the physical, smash-mouth brand of football that the Bills are not only aspiring to replicate, but which they themselves have struggled to deal with in recent seasons.

This is your spot to watch the Bills try to pass their second test of the 2011 regular season. GO BILLS!
