The Buffalo Bills make the short trip to Ohio this weekend to face the Cleveland Browns. The Bills have another winnable game - and one they need to have for a playoff run - while the Browns are still looking to get into the win column for the first time.

For many Bills fans, the big match-up is against Browns Defensive Coordinator Dick Jauron. Jauron was Buffalo's head coach from 2006 to 2009 compiling a 42% winning percentage. He's always been a very good defensive coordinator despite his lack of success as a head coach and the Browns were 10th in scoring defense a season ago.

Safety Jairus Byrd missed one practice this week and is listed as questionable, though he played through the injury a week ago and practiced fully on Thursday and Friday. Linebacker Nick Barnett missed practice on Thursday with some swelling in his knee but will also play. Wide receiver and special teams gunner Ruvell Martin will miss the game, potentially leading to the expansion of Leodis McKelvin's role on punt coverage. Running back Fred Jackson also won't be available.

For the Browns, LB James-Michael Johnson and TE Alex Smith are out. The bigger loss is Smith, the team's starting tight end. Safety Ray Ventrone had surgery on his hand this week and will play with it heavily wrapped. Receiver Joshua Cribbs and DT Billy Winn are both listed as questionable but are expected to go. The same can't be said for DE Juqua Parker who will be a game time decision with a foot injury.
