Bills Prove Futile On The Road Again

Drew Bledsoe - AP Photo Defense Rocks; Offense Sinks: It was another typical road game for the offense and another solid effort by the defense. The result was the same, a Bills loss. The offense went a fourth straight road game without scoring a touchdown. This game wasn't a rout, thanks to a defense that shutdown the Cowboys. The one thing the defense didn't do, was force turnovers and make the big play, that was the difference in the game. Our grades will be high for the defense and pathetically low for the worst offense in the league. Gameday Grades.

Bills Lose Again: The Bills offense struggled on the road once again as they failed to get into the end zone in their 10-6 loss in Dallas. The offensive failure to get into the end zone now stands at 17 quarters on the road. Drew Bledsoe fumbled the ball away twice, the first one led to the lone touchdown of the game. A 2 yard pass from Quincy Carter to Dan Campbell. The Bills knew the Cowboys would blitz all day but had no answer for it as Bledsoe looked more like Rob Johnson as he was very skittish throughout. We will have our complete review and grades later tonight and tomorrow on our gameday homepage. Complete Review.

Williams Banged Up: The Bills got out of Texas relatively injury free. Pat Williams was helped off the field late in the fourth quarter but did return in the final minute. Jonas Jennings and Ron Edwards were both inactive along with Willis McGahee. Injury Page.

Gameday Weather: Texas Stadium is about 70% covered by a roof so weather isn't normally a factor down there. It will be cloudy with a gametime temperature of 54°. There is a 20% chance of showers and very little wind.


Saturday November 8, 2003

Jennings Practices: Jonas Jennings did practice on a limited basis yesterday but it is unlikely he will start against Dallas. If he can't go super sub Marcus Price would get the start. It also may open up the chance for Marques Sullivan to be activated for the first time this year. Injury Page.


Friday November 7, 2003

Edwards Faces Surgery: Ron Edwards will be facing the knife, the question is when? His ailing shoulder has not seen much improvement at all and has been stated that he will need surgery in the off season. He practiced sparingly on Wednesday but could not go yesterday and remains doubtful for this week's game. There is a chance if he doesn't show improvement that they will just shut him down and have the surgery sooner rather than later. Injury Page.


Thursday November 6, 2003

Jennings Still Out: Jonas Jennings is listed as questionable on the injury report but he likely will not suit up Sunday against Dallas. He is battling a painful hip flexor injury and did not practice today. He also said he will likely not practice tomorrow. Marcus Price would start in his place. Price is 3-0 as a spot starter for the Bills over the last two years. Injury Report.

Bledsoe Confident: Drew Bledsoe told the media yesterday that he is confident that the team will make a run at the playoffs in the second half of the year. Bledsoe said he gained confidence over the bye week when the film work showed that the problem has been execution not matchups. He vowed that the team will execute better in the second half and that will lead to better results. He expects to throw more accurately and they expect to run the ball much better especially in the red zone.


Wednesday November 5, 2003

McGahee Activated: The Bills, as expected, officially activated Willis McGahee. He was added to the 53 man roster after practice this afternoon. To make room for him the team released RB Ken Simonton. McGahee will not be active anytime soon however, he is still rounding into shape.

Two Listed On Report: Ron Edwards and Jonas Jennings are the only two players listed on the injury report for the Bills. Edwards is doubtful and Jennings is questionable. Neither have practiced this week, Jennings is expected to try and go on Thursday and Edwards on Friday. The Cowboys have four players on the report. Injury Report.

McGahee Not Ready: Gregg Williams held his usual weekly press conference today, said that Willis McGahee is not ready to play yet but his positive attitude may help him get on the field this year. The Bills will make a decision on whether or not to activate him after today's practice. He said McGahee has worked hard since he's been in Buffalo but they won't know how he'll hold up until he gets into a game.

Technique Emphasized During Bye Week: Williams also said that the team got a little predictable, especially rushing the passer from the front four. He said they need to win one on one battles when they have them. The coach knows the team will have to play well to go down to Texas and win the game. He feels the Cowboys run the ball real well and have good sideline to sideline linebackers. They are also an attacking defense which is out of character for a Bill Parcells' coached team. On the passing game, he feels their were techinique stuff that needed to be tweaked over the bye week including getting back to the basics on route running, drop backs, and throwing accuracy.

Tuesday November 4, 2003

Campbell Signs Extension: One possible off season unrestricted free agent won't hit the market. The Bills announced today that they have signed Mark Campbell to a multi year contract extension. His agent said that the Bills approached them about a new deal and Campbell wanted to stay in Buffalo since he is wanted there.

Bye Week Happenings: So what did you do during the bye week? Tony Bogyo, in his comedic ways, gives you ideas on what you could have done or what you can do while waiting for the Bills next game on Sunday. Complete Story.

Moulds Better: After practice yesterday, Eric Moulds declared he is near 100%. He has the confidence back and his burst of speed. He said he is no longer thinking about the injury and that he is ready to go against Dallas. Injury Page.

Bye Week May Help Bills: The Bills head to Dallas on Sunday and all the signs point to another loss for Buffalo. The one thing they have going for them is that they are coming off a bye. The extra week of preparation may give the Bills the edge they need to pull off the upset. Complete Preview.


Monday November 3, 2003

Bills Practice: The Bills went back to work today and begun their practices in preparation for the Cowboys on Sunday. Jonas Jennings, Ron Edwards and Alex Van Pelt were all held out of today's workout.

Indy Helps Bills: The Colts victory over the Dolphins yesterday moved the Bills to within a game of 2nd place in the division. They also don't have to look over their shoulder as the Jets lost in overtime to the Giants. The team can complete a perfect bye week trifecta if the Broncos can knock off division leading New England. A Patriot loss heading into their bye week will give the Bills a chance to pull within a game of first place with an upset win in Dallas on Sunday.
