Like most fans of the Buffalo Bills, I did not see this one coming.

Matt Barkley will start for the Bills against the New York Jets on Sunday, set to become the fourth quarterback to start for the team this season. There was some optimism during the week that Josh Allen might be ready to face the Jets, but the rookie was officially ruled out of the game on Saturday afternoon. Today’s links include all of the coverage on Barkley, as well a updates on LeSean McCoy, previews of the Jets, and a must-watch video of Pancho Billa addressing the team earlier this week.
