Marker Jay Skurski's 3 Bills Thoughts: On Sammy Watkins, Percy Harvin & Dez Lewis [1:54 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'With just five weeks left in the season, it's looking like it might not be at all this year. The Bills probably won't shut Watkins down for good until they're officially eliminated from postseason contention, but that needs to happen if and when that moment comes. Watkins is too important to the team's future plans for them to continue risking a more serious injury. It's imperative that the team's medical staff and Watkins come up with a plan to get him healthy in the offseason.'

Marker Buffalo Bills picked to upset Oakland Raiders in Week 13 by two ESPN Insiders [1:51 AM]

I just think, with Sammy Watkins back, Buffalo's offense has the ability to accomplish things it hasn't been able to earlier this season.

Marker Can Logan Thomas be the Buffalo Bills' version of Terrelle Pryor? [1:48 AM]

I kept flip-flopping teams, which made it tough to get completely comfortable, but I guess that's the past now.'

Marker Bills ground attack will make difference vs. Raiders [1:47 AM]

He's tough, he's very determined to stay on the football field and help us win games but he has a broken bone in his foot at the end of the day."'

He’s very determined to stay on the football field and help us win games, but, he has a broken bone in his foot at the end of the day."'

Buffalo News reports: 'This isn't exactly news to fans who have lived through a 16-year playoff drought.December is the month when the Bills' chronic mediocrity comes calling, when regrettable early-season losses leave them on the outer fringes of the playoffs.

Marker Bills sign former quarterback Logan Thomas to play tight end [1:54 AM]

But, you know, it’s the National Football League and things happen. And that’s why your depth – what did Marv Levy used to say? Depth is a great thing as long as you don’t have to use it. But I think – in this league, you have to use it. Hopefully, we’ll get these guys back sooner than later.'
