Chris Brown's truly excellent look at today's Bills-Browns match-up.

Inside The Bills | Guard change
"I feel good about Eric at center," Gailey told "The challenge is replacing him at right guard. The combination of maybe Chad Rinehart and Cordaro Howard, we’re going to have to play both of those guys in there to bolster that spot to the point where we have a winning player at that spot."

Inside The Bills | LB Woods to see plenty of work
"We feel really fortunate to have that happen and he could be a guy that could be a player for the future, not just a stop gap right now," said head coach Chan Gailey. "He could be a guy that really plays long term for us because he does have the measurables. He is a very quick study. He’s going to play special teams this week, he’s going to play on our defense this week."

Inside The Bills | McGee to play a lot?
"We’re going to talk about that because this by far was his best week of practice so we may not have to ease him back in as much as we thought," Gailey told "So we’re going to talk about that plan as we get closer to game time. I thought this week of practice he looked like the old Terrence."

Tackles should loom large in Bills' draft plans - Larry Felser - The Buffalo News
"Watching the Vikings batter Fitzpatrick and his teammates brought me to a conclusion about the 2011 draft: The Bills don't have any tackles of even slim quality and if they don't use high picks to acquire one or two, including a possible No. 1, they aren't going to improve themselves much less become a contender."

Not seeing a Bills-Browns game a blessing - Jerry Sullivan - The Buffalo News
"The Browns and Bills are playing. All manner of ugliness is sure to ensue when these two AFC rivals strap on the helmets. There's a good chance we'll see some new and previously unimagined football atrocity today at the Ralph. Bad weather, like bad officiating, only tends to makes it worse."
