Bills vs. Cowboys live chat, 2015 NFL Week 16: first half open thread

The banged-up Bills are trying to end a four-game losing streak against the NFC East with a home game against the banged-up Cowboys today. We're talking about the first half inside.

The Buffalo Bills are playing out the string in 2015, with two home games remaining in a season that will once again end without a playoff berth for the team. That process begins this afternoon with a game against the Dallas Cowboys at Ralph Wilson Stadium in Orchard Park.

Buffalo is 0-3 against the NFC East this season, having lost to the New York Giants in Week 4, the Philadelphia Eagles two weeks ago, and the division champion Washington Redskins just a week ago today. This is the same NFC East that toiled in mediocrity throughout the season; 8-7 Washington just locked up the division crown last night. Dallas, considered the division front-runner entering the season, sits at 4-10 having played most of the season without starting quarterback Tony Romo.

Kellen Moore will be under center for the Cowboys today, making his first career start after replacing the ineffective Matt Cassel last week. He won't have his top receiver, Dez Bryant, to throw to, but he will be working against a Bills secondary that is missing its top two cornerbacks and its top safety. LeSean McCoy, Charles Clay, Nigel Bradham, and Dallas cornerback Morris Claiborne are all out, as well. This honestly feels a bit like a preseason game.

Nonetheless, we'll say what we always say, whenever we still have a chance to say it: go Bills. We're talking about the first half of the game right here. Join us, won't you?
