After a tumultuous pre-season, the offensive line of the Buffalo Bills has finally enjoyed a week full of positive press. We discussed their efforts on Monday. The folks at Scouts, Inc. praised the unit's discipline (no penalties against Oakland) as well as their blocking abilities, grading the line out as the best in the league for Week 2. Now, Pete Prisco of CBSSports.com is singing the praises of left tackle Demetrius Bell after reviewing the Bills' win over Oakland.

"Bell was matched much of the day against Oakland defensive end Matt Shaughnessy, a rising star," writes Prisco. "Bell neutralized him almost the entire game. He did a great job in his pass sets, getting a wide base, to handle Shaughnessy's power. And he opened a big hole on Fred Jackson's long touchdown run."

Prisco ended his analysis by noting that Bell "dominated" Shaughnessy. Bell is largely credited for the very quiet Week 1 effort of Kansas City pass rusher Tamba Hali, who beat right tackle Erik Pears for the Bills' only sack allowed on the season.

It's not just Prisco noticing Bell's efforts, either, as Sal Maiorana of the Democrat and Chronicle has a good piece up on Bell today, as well.
