Bills Blitz: Braylon Edwards caught a 13 yard touchdown pass from Mark Sanchez just before halftime to give the Jets a lead that they wouldn't relinquish as New York knocked off the Bills 19-13 at the Rogers Centre in Toronto. The Bills had taken a 10-6 lead in the 2nd quarter on a Marshawn Lynch 15 yard touchdown run that was setup by his 35 yard run a play earlier. Not much happened in the second half as both teams traded field goals. The Bills had one last chance in the final minutes but a Ryan Fitzpatrick deep pass to Terrell Owens was picked off. Bills Blitz.
Few Players Banged Up: Three players got banged up in the first half but all returned. Reggie Corner was shaken up in the 2nd quarter and replaced by the already banged up Terrence McGee. Kirk Chambers limped off in the 2nd quarter and was replaced by Jamon Meredith. He did return temporarily but Meredith finished the game. Marshawn Lynch also went to the locker room early before halftime but returned in the third quarter. Injury Page.
McGee, Byrd Active: Terrence McGee and Jairus Byrd are both active but will be limited. Reggie Corner will start for McGee even though he's active. The Bills officially also said that Fred Jackson will start at RB. Stevie Johnson, Cary Harris, James Hardy, and Chris Ellis are inactive along with Ashton Youboty, Demetrius Bell, and John McCargo who were ruled out yesterday.
Gameday In Toronto: It's been a whirlwind week as the Bills and Jets didn't have much time to prepare for tonight's matchup in Toronto. It's a "home" game for the Bills but they didn't have much of a home field advantage last year and there is no guarantee that they will have the majority of the fans again tonight. I wrote in our preview that whoever prepares best, and is the most organized to get their team ready in the short week, will win this game. The short week probably hurts Terrence McGee and Jairus Byrd the most as they are trying to get on the field despite their injuries.

Four Sidelined Today: The Bills practiced without pads for the second straight day as Perry Fewell is getting the team ready more mentally for Thursday's game than physically since it's such a short week. Ashton Youboty, Demetrius Bell, and John McCargo remain sidelined and will likely be out on Thursday. Todd Johnson missed practice for personal reasons. Jairus Byrd and Terrence McGee were limited. Byrd is expected to play. Fewell said McGee is day to day and will be a gametime decision. McGee feels he will play. Injury Page.
Bills Add Player: The Bills filled the open spot on their practice squad by adding their second defensive tackle in a week. They signed Rashaad Duncan who spent time on the practice squads of Tampa Bay and Carolina this year. He played his college ball at Pitt.
Game Soldout: Thursday night's game in Toronto is officially a sellout so the game will not be blacked out in Buffalo. There are reports however that there will be a lot of empty seats and that the sellout is on paper only.
Lynch Not Upset: Marshawn Lynch spoke to the media yesterday and said it feels good to get a win and Perry Fewell brings a lot of energy to the team. He said he's satisified with his reduced role with the team if they keep winning. He doesn't mind sitting down and watching Fred Jackson do his thing. He called it real big the way Jackson is playing. He will continue to show up at work every day and give it everything he's got.
Optimism With Bills: What a difference a win makes. The Bills solid fourth quarter effort has brought optimism regarding the future of the team. Even Tony Bogyo is taking an optimistic look about the team's future. Complete Story.
