Inconsistent Play In Loss: J.P. Losman is the model of inconsistency and in this game he wasn't alone. When the defense wasn't giving up big plays they were making nice run stuffs. When the special teams weren't recovering a fumble they were making stupid mental mistakes. It all equates into another big loss and it is translated into our grades. Gameday Grades.
Personnel Decisions To Wait: Dick Jauron said in his post game press conference that, as always, all personnel decisions will wait until Wednesday. He will have to look at the tape before making any decisions but they can't afford to make the mistakes they made today. He said all positions get looked at every week when pressed about the QB situation. He said he never though about removing J.P. Losman from the game. What should be done now at the QB spot? I think I know how this poll will go, take it on our homepage.
Bills Lose In Jacksonville 36-14: The Jaguars used a nice mix of run and pass along with a couple of big plays to defeat the Bills 36-14. The Bills were only down by eight and driving in the fourth quarter before J.P. Losman threw his second interception of the day. He also had a fumble to go along with a touchdown pass to Anthony Thomas. Roscoe Parrish had a 24 yard touchdown run on a reverse in the loss. The Jaguars had two big touchdown plays, Fred Taylor had a 50 yard touchdown run and Reggie Williams had a 59 yard touchdown reception in between five field goals for the win. They wrapped it up with a 17 yard touchdown run by Maurice Jones-Drew after he was held in check all day. Game Review.
Three Knocked Out Of Game: Chris Kelsay, Langston Walker, and Coy Wire were knocked out of the loss to the Jagaurs. Kelsay suffered an ankle injury late in the first half and did not return. Wire suffered a stinger in his neck and Walker hurt his elbow. Terrence McGee limped off after suffering what was called a lower leg contusion returning a kickoff in the first quarter. He was replaced by Ashton Youboty for a series but he did return and made it through the rest of the game fine. They will have to wait and see on the three big injuries. Injury Page.
Fox Activated: Marshawn Lynch was listed as out on Friday and is one of the inactives for today's game. Jerametrius Butler is also inactive with a calf injury, that means just signed Dustin Fox is active as the fourth cornerback for this game. The other inactives are: Ryan Neufeld, Tim Massaquoi, Copeland Bryan, Jason Jefferson and Christian Gaddis. Gibran Hamdan is the emergency third QB. For the Jaguars, number one CB Rashean Mathis is inactive with a groin injury.
Weather Warm In Northern Florida: It will be fairly warm for late November in Northern Florida today when the Bills play the Jaguars. Gametime temperature will be around 73°. There is a 30% chance of a few showers with winds out of the East Northeast at 10mph. The Bills will have to be well hydrated for the Florida heat this late in the year.

Bills Make Roster Move: The Bills made a roster move heading into the Jacksonville game yesterday. With the injury to Jerametrius Butler, the team is short on defensive backs so they activated Dustin Fox from the practice squad. To make room for him they released LB Leon Joe. Fox played at Ohio State with fellow defensive backs Donte Whitner and Ashton Youboty. He was signed to the Bills practice squad in September. He was a former third round pick of Minnesota before breaking his arm in his rookie season in 2005.

Lynch Ruled Out For Sunday: Marshawn Lynch has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Jacksonville when he did not practice once again today. Jauron said Lynch has come along way in a week and is walking well now. There appears to be a decent chance that he can play next week against Washington. Anthony Thomas will get the start once again in his place. Jerametrius Butler is listed as questionable after not practicing again on Friday. If he can't go, Ashton Youboty will play the nickel spot. Injury Page.
Lynch Remains Out: It continues to appear very unlikely that Marshawn Lynch will play on Sunday. He did not practice yesterday but he was on the sidelines limping lightly. He also did some light jogging. Jerametrius Butler missed practice on Thursday after practicing on a limited basis on Wednesday. Donte Whitner, Terrence McGee, and Angelo Crowell all returned to practice fully yesterday. Injury Page.

Parrish Unhappy: The usually soft spoken Roscoe Parrish spoke out yesterday to the media about his role in the offense. He said he's getting overlooked in the offensive scheme and he is very thankful for punt returns because he feels he is able to help the team that way. Parrish had one catch against New England but it was a 47 yard touchdown reception. He showed his frustration saying he knows he can blossom as a receiver if given the chance and that he needs more touches on offense. He also didn't blame J.P. Losman saying the QB can only do so much that it starts with the offensive coordinator. Losman said he will try to get the ball to Parrish more. Dick Jauron said he likes that his player wants to get more involved and reeled off statistics that say Parrish has received more reps on offense as the season has progressed. He has even used Parrish in the two receiver set more recently.

Like A Playoff Game: J.P. Losman addressed the media today and said this game is like a playoff game, they all are but especially this week. If you are talking playoffs they are going to need this game. They need to remain sharp and play through injuries. Losman said it started today in practice and they had a great practice today. Mental mistakes have cost them points the past two weeks and they need to fix that really fast and got off to a good start at doing that in practice today. It is tough getting over a loss like Sunday's. It lingered through Monday but now they are focused on Jacksonville. They need to keep the hunger inside of them from last week's loss.
Lynch Not Practicing: As expected Marshawn Lynch did not practice today although he remains without the immobilizer boot. Coach Jaruon confirmed in his media day press conference that it is indeed a high ankle sprain. Donte Whitner also missed today's workout after having a blow to the end during the game. They expect to follow the same protocol they did last week with Robert Royal and the week before with John DiGiorgio. They figure he will be ready on Sunday but they take these types of injuries serious. The coach said he's still not optimistic that Lynch will play on Sunday. Angelo Crowell, Terrence McGee, and Jerametrius Butler were all limited in practice. Crowell has a foot injury, McGee has a sore Achilles and Butler has a calf problem. Injury Page.
Big Game Ahead: The Bills look to rebound from the worst loss in team history this week in a must win game against Jacksonville. This could be a do or die game for J.P. Losman who likely will go back to the bench with a third straight bad effort. The Bills will likely come out throwing against a low ranked Jaguars pass defense. Game Preview.
