Bills Get Biggest Win Of Year

AP Photo - Lee EvansDefense Dominates: It was a total team effort as the Bills put together their biggest win of the year today. The defense was solid as they allowed the least amount of points in over two seasons. They grades will reflect their dominating performance. Gameday Grades

Bills Win 14-3: J.P. Losman came into the game for an injured Kelly Holcomb and hit Lee Evans for two touchdowns to lead the Bills to a 14-3 win at home against Kansas City. The defense forced four turnovers including three interceptions as they played their best game of the year. Complete Review

Williams Starts; Anderson Finishes: The offensive line shuffle started with Mike Williams at left guard and Jason Peters at right tackle. The offense struggled while Williams was in there so the team switched to Bennie Anderson at left guard and he played the entire second half. Since it was working the coach didn't feel he needed to put Williams back in the game who made need more seasoning at his new position.

Holcomb, Vincent Hurt: Sam Adams did not play against the Chiefs. He was added to the injury report on Friday with a banged knee. He had fluid develop in the knee area and could not go. In the game, Troy Vincent left in the first half with a shoulder injury and did not return. Kelly Holcomb suffered a concussion and did not return. Willis McGahee injured his left hand and went to the locker room for x-rays but returned after the results were negative. Injury Page

Windy Conditions: It will be unseasonably mild for today's game with a high temperature of 62°. The issue will be the winds as they will be out of the SW at 20-30 mph. It will be a warm wind that may effect the passing games. There also will be a few scattered showers to contend with, but not heavy rain.

Return Game Key: Everyone going to the game, including Bills Daily, should be careful not to go to the bathroom or get a beer when the ball is being kicked off. It will be a real pleasure watching the two best return men in the game battle it out as Dante Hall and Terrence McGee battle it out for the title of best return man. McGee leads the league in kick return average and took the pro bowl berth away from Hall last year. Hall also returns punts but the Bills feel they have a future star returning punts as well in Roscoe Parrish. McGee is battling a strained hamstring but he is downplaying the injury and expects to play. He did practice Thursday and Friday but was limited a bit.


Friday November 11, 2005

Adams Added: Sam Adams has been added to the injury report as questionable with a knee injury. His agent said he's been beat up physically this year and banged his knee on Monday. He did not practice today and will be a gametime decision according to Coach Mularkey. Adams has been under fire for the poor play of the defense against the run and he was unhappy by his benching for most of the second half against New England. Coach Mularkey said early in the week that he expected Adams back in the starting lineup against Kansas City. Injury Report

Game Soldout: As expected, the Bills announced yesterday that Sunday's game against the Chiefs is soldout and there will be no TV blackout in Western New York. It is the 20th sellout in the last 21 home games. The next home game against the Panthers still has about 3,000 tickets available.


Thursday November 10, 2005

McGee Practices: Terrence McGee returned to practice today after missing yesterday's session with a hamstring strain. He is listed as questionable on the injury report but expects to play. Injury Report

Offense Starting To Jell: Kelly Holcomb told the media yesterday that they have to worry about themselves and focus. If they handle their business everything else will take care of itself. He feels that Jason Peters played well last week and if Mike Williams can make the move to guard its a testament to his talent. He said the passing game and the whole team has some momentum off of the Patriots game but it isn't a moral victory. They need to keep it going this week and move the football to keep the high powered Chiefs offense off the field. He is confident and thinks things are starting to jell offensively. They would like to make more plays downfield but as long as they are moving the ball and scoring touchdowns in the red zone they will be ok.


Wednesday November 9, 2005

Holmes Out For Chiefs: The Chiefs have 12 players on their injury report. The biggest name is Priest Holmes. He has been placed on season ending injured reserve. Contrary to earlier reports, it is not considered career ending. Five defensive backs are on the list for the Chiefs. Injury Report

Williams, Anderson Split Reps: Coach Mularkey addressed the media in his usual media day press conference. He said Mike Williams and Bennie Anderson split reps at left guard once again. He looked good doing some things, like pulling out at guard. The coach thought he has picked things up quickly and did well. The coach is looking for consistency on the line, something they haven't had since he's been in Buffalo. He does feel that Jason Peters is best suited at right tackle. The coach denied that the penalty problem Anderson has had was not a main issue in the switch. He ruled out Williams going to right tackle because the coach feels Mike Gandy has been the most consistent player on the line this year. The coach has told the team that the second half is a fresh start and they need to come out better than they did in the first half. Mularkey said he'd like to get J.P. Losman into games for a series or two but it depends on how each game unfolds. It has to be the right time but he'd like to give him a chance and some more experience.

Everett Hits Field: Kevin Everett hit the practice field for the first time since tearing his ACL in mini camp. He is very limited and the three week window has opened on activating him. They are giving him a chance to do some things and see how he progresses. In three weeks they will either activate him or put him on injured reserve, which is still a very real possibility.

McGee Questionable: The Bills only have two names on the injury report, but one is a surprise. Terrence McGee is listed as questionable with a hamstring injury. It is considered a strain and he did not practice. He was probable for the game two weeks ago with a leg injury but played the whole game. Greg Jerman is out once again this week. On the KC front, we are awaiting word on if Priest Holmes will play or not. Coach Vermiel said a decision will come later today. A report from a KC TV station said he may retire as early as tomorrow with a spine ailment. Injury Report

Williams Thinks Move Is Good: Mike Williams told the media today that his move to left guard is a good move. He has to get used to playing guard and on the left side for the first time in his life. He said he thinks it is a good move for the team and it remains to be seen if it is good for his career. He called it a challenge moving to the other side of the line. Playing guard will give the team more depth and bulk on the inside and adds flexibility as well. He said he wouldn't mind the move permanently but he has to wait and see how it works out. The fact that moving to guard may cost him money hasn't entered his mind at this time. He said it is not a demotion moving inside, it is a move to get the best five guys on the field. The difficult part of the move is flipping every play for the left side as well as the differences in motor mechanics.

Some Fans Angry: As the Bills look ahead to the second half of the season, Tony Bogyo takes one last look back at the devastating loss in his hometown of Boston and the first half of the season. Be warned, he is angry by the way the season has gone so far and points out that the team is struggling with a lack of heart. Complete Story

Bills Get Set For Chiefs: The Bills are now refreshed and preparing hard for Sunday's battle with the Chiefs. The coaches help the offensive line shuffle will help them have more time for the downfield passing game. The Chiefs are coming off an emotional victory that could either propel them into the second half or set them up for a letdown. It will be a big crossroads game for the Bills as it could set them up for a second half run or get them started in preparing for the future. Game Preview


Monday November 7, 2005

Williams Ready To Go: Mike Williams talked to reporters before taking the practice field at left guard. He said he can't describe the feeling of not staying healthy. He knows he has something to contribute to the team but was frustrated because he wasn't ready to help. He thought he was ready to play against the Patriots but he's ready to go right now. The time off during the bye week has helped his ankle heal up. He feels the line has played well but there are things they need to clean up but they are in their control. Injury Page

Williams Works At Left Guard: After evaluating the personnel on the bye week, Coach Mularkey has decided to give Mike Williams about half the reps at left guard today in practice. He will get a week's worth of work at that position as he rounds back into shape. The coach wants to see how comfortable he gets at a new position. Jason Peters remains at right tackle. He started for Williams at that position before the bye week while Williams battled an ankle sprain and Coach Mularkey said he looks comfortable there and they want to see if they can get more out of him. The coach plans on starting Peters there on Sunday at this time. Williams said he's ready to play and it appears like he will be starting at right guard but the coach was cautious to see how the new lineup develops in practice this week. If the Bills go this route on Sunday it makes Bennie Anderson the odd man out. Anderson was the man responsible for the big sack and fumble that led to the Patriots winning touchdown. The coach didn't comment on Anderson but said he's looking for the five best guys on the line. The team hopes Greg Jerman will see the practice field sometime this week. Mario Haggan missed today's workout because of some travel problems. On Sam Adams, the coach understands that he's not happy about being benched last week but said he does remain the starter at this time.

Bills Get Back To Work: Fresh off a long weekend to rejuvenate the batteries, the Bills go back to work today preparing for Sunday's home game against the Chiefs. Kansas City is coming off an emotional victory on the last play against the Raiders. The Bills will be looking to get their season back on track after a disappointing first half.
