The Buffalo Bills (8-6) began a crucial four-game stretch to close out the regular season with a 31-14 win over the Carolina Panthers (5-9) on a chilly Sunday afternoon at Highmark Stadium.

Today’s edition of the Bills daily links leads off by examining the good (Josh Allen, Gabriel Davis, Efe Obada and the pass rush, Devin Singletary, the red zone offense and a solid performance from the defense ) and the bad (Spencer Brown and the Bills makeshift offensive line, too many penalties, a slow start from the offense and inconsistency from the run defense) as Buffalo earns a big win.
