Gameday Grades: The final score doesn't even begin to tell the story of how badly the Bills were beat. They basically destoryed themselves because Tampa Bay didn't do too much themselves but they didn't have to. Gameday Grades.
Bills Blitz: The Bills played their worst game of the season as the Buccaneers blew out Buffalo 27-6 in a very ugly game in Tampa Bay. Third string running back Bobby Rainey ran 80 yards for a touchdown :18 into the game and it went downhill from there. Mike Glennon threw a 38 yard touchdown pass to Vincent Jackson and a 5 yarder to Timothy Wright to give the Bucs a 24-3 halftime lead. EJ Manuel could get nothing going offensively as he faced heavy pressure all day and was sacked seven times. He threw four interceptions although two of them were the fault of his receivers. Regardless it doubled his interception total for the season as he only had four picks all year coming in. The game was real ugly for both teams in the second half as there were more penalties than points after the intermission as both teams managed just a field goal. Bills Blitz.
Injury Update: Ron Brooks got hurt covering a first quarter punt. He was down and not moving for several minutes but got up under his own power and was ok. He returned to the game. Brian Moorman got banged up momentarily when he was hit while punting. He was ok and finished the game. Robert Woods was banged up on an interception after a big hit by Darelle Revis. He seemed ok as well. Injury Page.
Inactives: Once again the Bills are totally healthy heading into today's game. That means every scratch is a healthy one, the inactives are: Jeff Tuel, Antoine McClain, Frank Summers, Tony Moeaki, Jamaal Westerman, Mark Asper, and Brandon Smith. Doug Marrone said earlier in the week that Moeaki would be inactive since there wasn't enough time to get him ready to play. Westerman, Summers, and Asper are new in recent weeks to this list. With the bigger Wingo active at running back the team will go with Evan Rodriguez at fullback. J.J. Unga gets the nod over Asper to backup at guard as the team begins to evaluate some young players for the future. Vincent Jackson will play for the Bucs after being listed as questionable with a hamstring injury.
Bills Prepared For Heat: The Bills practiced with the heat turned up in the fieldhouse on Thursday and Friday to prepare them for the heat of Tampa. That is just what they will get for today's game. It will be sunny and warm at kickoff with a gametime temperature of around 80°. Winds will be light out of the South Southeast at 7mph.
