Bills sitting at .500

“We need to seize the moment”

DE Kyle Williams

The Buffalo Bills (5-5, 3rd AFC East) have players on their squad that were not even born the last time the Bills won a playoff game (24 years ago) and DE Kyle Williams is urging his team to seize the moment and grab a playoff spot before his time is up.

“As a Buffalo Bill, I’ve had opportunities to make the playoffs, they’ve passed me by,” Williams said, via The News. “We have the opportunity right now. We need to seize the moment.”

The Bills are coming off a slim 4-point 16-12 win over the 3-6 Cincinnati Bengals and know that they need to take it to the 2-8 Jaguars from from the coin flip and throughout the entire game.  It doesn’t help when your head coach is poking fun at (allegedly) your opponent–no need to get them heated up, coach!

“That’s the best two win team I’ve ever seen, and that’s the truth,” Ryan said. “I don’t get it. I mean statistically they’re the seventh rated defense in the league. So they’re ranked higher bills-5than we are on defense. Their offense is 21st in the league, but now they’re healthy. Outside, they’ve got three guys that can really play. I mean they’ve got way more top 100 players than we did last year, you know looking at all that stuff, I thought it was the Jacksonville show. But you know you’ve got a franchise quarterback, that’s what they all tell me. You’ve got Chris Ivory at running back, who’s a great back. I had him with the Jets. I know all about him. He’s a handful. Then you got you know (Allen) Hurns, (Allen) Robinson and (Marqise) Lee is really playing well. Probably the best game that Lee has ever had. So they definitely have those types of weapons on offense. And then they’ve got a big offensive line, physical offensive line. And then on defense, like I said, they’re seventh in the league, with a lot of talent so to think we’re going to overlook them, there’s no chance. I mean I don’t understand it necessary. I think it probably comes down to their turnover —you know, I think they’re at -15 maybe or something like that. And I think that contributes to their record probably more than anything else. But this is a dangerous football team.”

Sarcasm or not, the Bills should be ready for a pumped up Jags team.  You can be there to watch it all!  Plenty of great seats and affordable tickets are still available so be sure to grab yours today and help cheer on your Buffalo Bills!

Peyton’s Broncos to Open 2012 NFL Season Against Steelers

The September 9 game, announced by the NFL on Tuesday along with the full 2012 schedule, will be the first in 20 months for the four-time Most Valuable Player, who was cut by the Indianapolis Colts in March after missing the 2011 campaign recovering from neck surgery.

“The opening game in Denver obviously will be an interesting way to start the season,” Steelers’ President Art Rooney said in a statement.

“There will be a lot of attention paid to Peyton Manning’s first game with the Denver Broncos, so it’ll be exciting to start out that way.”

Plenty of attention on the first Sunday of the season will also be paid to the New Orleans Saints when the scandal-ravaged team hosts the Washington Redskins, who are expected to draft Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Robert Griffin III next week.

Saints coach Sean Payton is suspended the entire season for his part in a scheme that paid bonuses to players for knocking opponents out of games, several players could still be banned and quarterback Drew Brees is dealing with a contract dispute.

Tim Tebow, who was released by the Broncos to make way for Manning, could make his Big Apple debut when the New York Jets host the Buffalo Bills in Week One.

Opening week will also feature a Monday Night double-header with the Cincinnati Bengals visiting the Baltimore Ravens and the Oakland Raiders hosting the San Diego Chargers.

“From our team’s standpoint and our fans’ standpoint, I don’t know that you could put together a more exciting schedule when you look at the number of great teams we play and when we play them,” Chargers head coach Norv Turner said in a statement.

“We start our offseason program on Monday and I think it really gives our guys something to look forward to. It should give our guys great motivation.”

The Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears will add another chapter to their long-standing rivalry when they open Week Two with a Thursday meeting at Lambeau Field, while defensive end Mario Williams, who left the Houston Texans to join the Buffalo Bills in the biggest off-season signing after Manning, makes his home debut against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Williams, the NFL’s highest-paid defensive player, will face his former team when the Bills visit the Texans on November 1 for a Week Nine game.

The U.S. Thanksgiving Day lineup will see familiar names suiting up November 22 as Tom Brady and the New England Patriots visit the rival New York Jets, Houston heads to the Motor City to face the Detroit Lions and the Dallas Cowboys host Washington.

Two games will be played outside the United States as the St. Louis Rams and Patriots play at London’s Wembley Stadium on October 28 while the Buffalo Bills make their annual visit to Toronto for a December 16 game against the Seattle Seahawks.

The NFL had already announced that the regular season will kick off September 5 with the champion New York Giants hosting the division rival Dallas Cowboys.
