Bills lose late to Rams, 15-12

The Buffalo Bills led the St. Louis Rams on the stat sheet for most of the game but continued their frustrating runs of losses.


Fred Jackson Down With Knee Injury

Fred Jackson has left the Buffalo Bills game against the St. Louis Rams. He ran into the pile on a routine ground-and-pound type of interior rushing play. He remained down on the ground for quite some time.

After limping off the field with the help of trainers, he was carted to the locker room with a towel over his head. It doesn't appear to be good. We'll update after the game.


Bills Take 12-7 Lead Into Fourth Quarter

The Buffalo Bills and St. Louis Rams provided few fireworks in the first half but the second half has been much more lively. The teams traded touchdowns in the third quarter and start the fourth with Buffalo leading 12 to 7.

The Bills botched their extra point after a great drive lead to a two yard Lee Smith touchdown catch. C.J. Spiller got going on the ground and quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick continues to methodically pick apart the Rams secondary (seriously).

On defense, the Rams had 71 yards of offense in the first half and nearly equaled that total on their first drive of the half, moving 70 yards for their touchdown plunge from Stephen Jackson.

St. Louis is set to punt as the fourth quarter begins. The rain has begun falling at Ralph Wilson Stadium and with conditions getting sloppy, it might be time to unleash the Bills running game. We'll see you here after the game.

The Buffalo Bills have squandered opportunities as they hold a slim 6-0 lead over the St. Louis Rams at halftime.


Snoozer Alert: Bills Up 3-0 After First

Sam Bradford has six yards passing and the St. Louis Rams have negative-one yards rushing in the first quarter. Still, the Buffalo Bills lead them only 3-0 at the end of the first.

The Buffalo Bills had two very nice drives in the first half on the arm of Ryan Fitzpatrick. C.J. Spiller took a 3rd-and-13 screen and turned it into a first down on the first scoring drive after the teams traded three three-and-outs. It stalled inside the 20 and Rian Lindell nailed a field goal to get points on the board.

On Buffalo's second drive into the Rams' red zone, Fred Jackson fumbled as the first quarter expired, ending a drive that saw Fitzpatrick hit Scott Chandler and Stevie Johnson for big gains.

Buffalo's defense has been the story, so far. Mario Williams and Alex Carrington shared a sack and the Rams gained only 7 yards on any single drive. Jairus Byrd was knocked from the game early but returned late in the first quarter despite a leg contusion.

Buffalo Bills fans discuss the first half of today's home game against the St. Louis Rams.


Bills go with Snow at center

The Buffalo Bills made the decision this week to start rookie David Snow at center to replace Eric Wood. Wood is out two to four weeks with a partially torn MCL.

Some expected guard Kraig Urbik to slide over to the pivot as he did a year ago when Wood was felled by injury. With inexperienced right tackle Sam Young making his first career start, head coach Chan Gailey opted not to shuffle the entire right side of the line and keep Urbik in his normal position.

Flanking Snow to help him with the line calls will be veterans Urbik on the right and Andy Levitre on the left. Rookie Cordy Glenn is also starting at left tackle. By leaving Urbik at right guard, they are alternating rookie-veteran down the offensive line.

The Bills and Rams kick off at 1 PM. The St. Louis pass rush will certainly be fierce in the face of the green line.


Aaron Williams Among Bills Inactives

The Buffalo Bills will once again be without the services of starting cornerback Aaron Williams. Head coach Chan Gailey said this week that Williams would be "close" but he was apparently not close enough as he is out again with his knee injury.

The other big news is wide receiver Stevie Johnson will play despite his groin injury. Cornerback Leodis McKelvin, who aggravated a back injury in the first quarter a week ago, will also be in the lineup. Those two returning to the lineup as well as the return of Donald Jones leave wide receiver Marcus Easley is inactive, as well.

Joining Williams on the injured list is injured defensive end Mark Anderson and center Eric Wood. Neither were expected to play this week. Chris Kelsay was placed on injured reserve this week and will be out. Healthy scratches include quarterback Tarvaris Jackon, newly-signed cornerback T.J. Heath and offensive lineman Chris Scott.


Bills/Rams victor will likely win rushing battle

With another less-than-ideal weather situation brewing, the winner between the Buffalo Bills and the St. Louis Rams will likely have a better day running and stopping the run.


Stevie headlines Bills/Rams injury report

Six Buffalo Bills players are questionable for Sunday's game against the St. Louis Rams, but only one of them - Aaron Williams - is looking especially iffy to play.


Trench battle key in Bills/Rams

This weekend's game between the Bills and the Rams features two excellent pass-rushing defensive lines, as well as two very iffy offensive lines.


Bills/Rams game is sold out
