The 5-7 Buffalo Bills statistically are not out of the playoff hunt all-together at this point. They will, however, need to win out and get a lot of help if they dream of getting in. This week they will face the up and coming St. Louis Rams. The Rams are just 5-6-1, but have been playing great team football as of late and could easily get by Buffalo despite the Bills being at home. They just got an enormous win last week and seem to be headed in the right direction under new veteran coach Jeff Fisher. The game is set to kickoff at 1 PM ET at Ralph Wilson Stadium.
Buffalo comes into the game after a big 34-18 win over the Jaguars last week at home. The win still was impressive given how great the Jaguars had played the two weeks prior to the game with Buffalo. Despite the Jaguars 2 wins, Blaine Gabbert had been out with an injury and Chad Henne has been replacing him. Henne has looked to be a much better option for the Jaguars, but did not give the bills much trouble last Sunday as they shut him down defensively to get the win.
The Rams too got a win last week at home, but against a much better opponent in the 49ers. The game ended 16-13 in overtime with just 30 seconds left in regulation. If the Rams would have missed their last minute field goal, the game could have ended in a tie, which is the same way the team’s first contest earlier this season ended. This week’s game in Buffalo could figure to see much more scoring then that seen in St. Louis last week.
