Former Buffalo Bill veteran linebacker Brandon Spikes has resigned with the team after rookie linebacker Reggie Ragland went down with an knee injury. Spikes last played in Buffalo in 2014 and was cut last year by the New England Patriots.
“I’m not real sure,” Head Coach Rex Ryan said about Ragland. “I guess I was just so hopeful there’s not going to be ligament things. My understanding is that as you get going, your leg is so tight, they’ll fight it. You don’t really get a true look of that. So as we mentioned, we got to wait for that swelling to go down. I know every Bills fan out there is hoping for the best, and that’s certainly what we’re doing, but there is concern.”

Leodis McKelvin must have felt like he was in an episode of The Twilight Zone as he once again found himself repeating a huge mistake he last made against the New England Patriots the last time they played MNF in 2008. Back then, McKelvin fumbled a kick return, this time it was a punt return that cost three points in a 20-13 loss.
“It’s football,” McKelvin said. “Things happen. S— happens. I guess it just happened to me at this place. Luck of the draw.”
At the end of this game, the Bills were driving and running a two minute drill and quarterback Tyrod Taylor (20-36 for 233) hit WR Sammy Watkins who rolled out of bounds with two seconds left on the clock – enough time for an unlikely Hail Mary pass completion. The referee, however, allowed the clock to continue to run citing that Watkins “gave himself up.”
“What we had as far as the last play with Buffalo’s reception was that the receiver gave himself up voluntarily in the field of play. When that occurs and we deem that the runner, which he would have been after he maintained possession after his reception, he was now a runner, had given himself up in the field of play,” Referee Gene Steratore told a pool reporter

The 22-17 win over the New York Jets last weekend has fueled hopes that the rematch against the New England Patriots will have a better outcome than their 40-32 loss in week two. The Patriots are coming off a slim 27-26 win over the New York Giants last weekend.
The Bills are looking forward to getting back on the field with the Pats on Monday Night Football and head coach Rex Ryan knows his team has what it takes to defeat the undefeated.
“I know we have improved as a football team. I know we have, we are better,” Ryan said at a press conference Tuesday.
While both Julian Edelman (11 catches for 97 yards and two touchdowns) and Rob Gronkowski (seven catches for 113 yards and a touchdown) tore up the Bills in their last meeting, the Patriots will be without Edelman for this game after breaking a bone in his foot against the Giants and is expected to be out for 6-8 weeks while the Bills D looks to take Gronkowski out of the game.
“We got a game plan to take him out of the game,” cornerback Stephon Gilmore said Tuesday. “We’re gonna be ready for him.”
