If last week’s win over the Green Bay Packers was one to remember, the Buffalo Bills’ soul-crushing loss to the Oakland Raiders on Sunday will be one fans soon want to forget. A lack of created turnovers and ill-timed injuries to defensive stalwarts Marcell Dareus and Stephon Gilmore didn’t help matters, but once again offensive ineptitude ruled the day in the Bills’ 26-24 loss.

Buffalo is now eliminated from playoff contention with the disappointing loss.

Fresh off their biggest win of the season, as they beat the Green Bay Packers 21-13 on Sunday, the Buffalo Bills are set to get another boost as arguably their most dynamic offensive player, running back C.J Spiller, is being added back to the team’s active roster from injured reserve with a return designation.

After a week of evaluating his progress, Bills coach Doug Marrone announced Friday that will be on the 53-man team and is probable to play Sunday against the Oakland Raiders.

It’s unknown if Spiller will be 100 percent after missing eight weeks with a broken collarbone, or what role he will play in his return to the offense. At the least, he gives the Bills offense—which certainly needs any spark it can get—another weapon to work with in its final two games of the regular season, as Buffalo makes a push for a potential AFC playoff spot.

The Buffalo Bills bounced back in Week 15 with a 21-13 victory over the visiting Green Bay Packers in what some fans are calling the biggest win in a decade. There is no doubt it was a monumental victory for head coach Doug Marrone and his staff, as it keeps the Bills’ playoff push alive into Week 16, something fairly uncommon for the Western New York franchise in December.

The Bills defense ruled the day as it shut down the Packers passing game and limited the damage done on the ground on its way to some high grades. The offense once again struggled to punch the ball into the end zone; it will need to get better if Buffalo wants to win out and potentially make the playoffs.

Wow.

A full 24 hours has passed since the Buffalo Bills pulled off one of the biggest upsets of the 2014 NFL season, handing the NFC favorite Green Bay Packers a 21-13 loss at Ralph Wilson Stadium, but the game still has the feeling of being too surreal for words. The Bills received contributions from all three of their November pickups, but none bigger than a punt return touchdown by Marcus Thigpen and the first two interceptions of Bacarri Rambo’s career.

If you only watch Buffalo Bills football games and don’t pay attention to the rest of the NFL, you wouldn’t know that Aaron Rodgers and Peyton Manning are considered to be the two best quarterbacks in the league.

Holding Manning without a passing touchdown for the first time in more than four years wasn’t enough for the Bills to score a win over the Denver Broncos in Week 14. But forcing Rodgers into one of the worst games of his career was enough for the Bills to score a 21-13 win over the Green Bay Packers—who came into Week 15 with the league’s longest winning streak at five games—and clinch their first non-losing season (8-6 with two games to go) since 2004.
