Whew. It has been a busy two days covering the Buffalo Bills. A Monday Night Football discussion thread that's open to any topic of conversation might just be the perfect way to catch our breath as we follow our favorite team into Week 2.
Tonight, the Baltimore Ravens host the Cincinnati Bengals at 7PM, and then the Oakland Raiders and San Diego Chargers round out Week 1. You're welcome to discuss those games here if you're watching. Or, alternately, you can talk about the various Bills stories that have broken today, which are recapped after the jump. Either way: enjoy a relaxing evening, and we'll see you bright and early Tuesday morning.
Jets 48, Bills 28: New-Look Bills Resemble The Old Ones
This is our post-game recap thread after yesterday's game. Good on everyone for calming down a little bit over the last 24-plus hours. :)
Buffalo Bills' David Nelson Has Torn ACL, To Miss 2012 Season
Buffalo's most reliable slot receiver is on the shelf for the entire season, and that's a major bummer - particularly considering Nelson is just a really good dude.
Buffalo Bills' T.J. Graham Now Has A Role To Fill
With Nelson sidelined, rookie T.J. Graham - who wasn't even active for yesterday's loss - will now play an important role in Chan Gailey's offense. That's according to Gailey, by the way.
Buffalo Bills' Fred Jackson To Miss At Least Three Weeks
Oh yeah. Fred Jackson is hurt, too. It's not as big of a bummer as Nelson's bummer, considering he may only miss a month or so, but it's still a bummer.
Jets 48, Bills 28: Mario Williams v. Austin Howard Re-Watch
Mario Williams ripped into the replacement officials after the game, claiming that Austin Howard routinely hit him in the face. He has a point... sort of.
Buffalo Bills' C.J. Spiller Making Case For Full-Time Gig
Perhaps this comes off as the obligatory "feel good" post of the day, but it's well-earned. Spiller was outstanding in Week 1, and may be on the verge of a true break-out campaign.
