Buffalo Bills Links, 11/18: Why fixing the ground game is top priority

Plus, did the Bills fall far in the NFL power rankings?

In today’s edition of the Buffalo Bills daily links, we address the Bills’ most pressing area of concern heading into their bye week: fixing the running game, which has yet to get on track despite the presence of talented running backs Devin Singletary and Zack Moss.
