In today’s edition of the Buffalo Bills daily links: After sacking Russell Wilson five times during Sunday’s 44-34 win over the Seattle Seahawks, it appears Buffalo’s pass rush is back on track. We hand out position-by-position grades for the Bills following the win as Buffalo improved to 7-2 for the first time since the 1993 season.

We spotlight how linebacker Tremaine Edmunds was a consistent contributor during the win and how Edmunds can build off of Sunday’s solid effort. We analyze the snap counts for lessons from the win, including whether rookie Zack Moss is overtaking Devin Singletary atop the running back depth chart.

We break down another outstanding performance from quarterback Josh Allen, who is continuing to chip away at the Bills’ record books, we highlight linebacker A.J. Klein’s career game, hear how #BillsMafia stepped up and made donations to support the Oishei Children’s Hospital in honor of Allen’s late grandmother, and much more!
