Game Day Web Rumblings: Buffalo Bills News, 12/4

5 Things To Watch In Bills - Titans - WGR 550 SportsRadio
"In the end, these are two extremely similar teams with records only a game off from one another. I think the thing that puts the Bills over the edge in this one is the fact that it's their first home game since November 6. They still have the taste of the Jets game at home in their mouths, so they'll aim to get back on track at home. In order for a win, though, I think CJ Spiller has to have a big day. I think he will."

Comeback still stings Titans - BillBoard - The Buffalo News
Here's a quote from former Oilers cornerback, former Bills defensive coordinator and current Titans defensive chief Jerry Gray on the game: "A lot of good coaches got fired from here," said Gray, referring to the aftermath of the defeat. "Nothing against (the Bills), but we had a lot of good football players. We should have won that game and we knew it. I think at that time we were probably the best team in the NFL with the talent we had, but the best team doesn’t always win."

Rodney McKissic's five keys to the game.

Titans-Bills Preview -
"The Bills' 21st-ranked rush defense is allowing 123.8 per game, and that unit could face a tough test with Chris Johnson coming off a season-best 190-yard effort in a 23-17 victory over Tampa Bay on Sunday. The Titans ran for a season-high 202 yards."

Wilson out for Sunday -
"For Wilson his absence from the lineup has been particularly frustrating. The co-captain has watched his team drop from the top contenders in the AFC playoff race. Still alive, but with no margin for error Wilson, who was also putting together his best individual season, was hoping he could help his team get a much needed victory this Sunday."

Letting Stevie walk would only add to Bills' dysfunction - Jerry Sullivan - The Buffalo News
"I still have reservations. But given a week to reflect, I believe it's in the Bills' best interests to sign Johnson, who will be an unrestricted free agent after the season, to a long-term contract extension. Yes, he needs to grow up. He needs to hold onto the ball in the critical moments. But he's one of their best players, and you don't become a contender by letting those guys walk."

"There's still a chance, there's still hope," Kelsay said. "A lot of things have to happen, but this is a big game and we have to seize the opportunity. It's another team that's in the wild-card chase and the tiebreaker could go a long way if we were able to win out and put ourselves where we want to be."
