Star of the game: A few years back, the Bills’ best player was Brian Moorman. That’s how bad things were. They’ve since cultivated overachievers such as Fred Jackson and Stevie Johnson. They signed star pass-rusher Mario Williams. But Moorman was Buffalo’s best player tonight. He averaged 43.2 yards on five punts with no touchbacks. They landed at the Redskins’ 12-, 4-, 13-, 24- and 1-yard lines.

As ugly as the Buffalo Bills’ 7-6 pre-season opening loss to the Washington Redskins was in general, some key players currently entrenched in high-profile position battles made some plays on Thursday night. Nothing is decided in any spot, of course, but it’s worth keeping track of what’s happening at each battle.

ORCHARD PARK — By signing Mario Williams to a $100-million contract and Mark Anderson for $27 million, by drafting Stephon Gilmore in the first round, and getting Kyle Williams and Shawne Merriman back from injury, there was some mega buzz generated about the Bills’ new 4-3 defense.
One of the power conferences in terms of both BCS hopes and NFL Draft prospects, the Big 12 once again features tons of NFL talent, even at the junior level.
