While all eyes are on the 2015 NFL draft class this week at the NFL Scouting Combine, free agency is just around the corner, as the NFL league year opens up on March 10. As a result, Buffalo Bills free agents were the hot topic of discussion when Bills general manager Doug Whaley spoke with media members in Indianapolis.

I’m not in Indianapolis but as always, significant notes from Whaley’s time with the press spread quickly across the airwaves of Twitter. As such, we can react to some of the news that Whaley revealed today on a number of impending Buffalo Bills free agents, including strong safety Da’Norris Searcy, middle linebacker Brandon Spikes and running back C.J. Spiller.

The Buffalo Bills welcomed football back to Western New York on Sunday with an emphatic 26-10 victory over the Cleveland Browns. Both teams got off to a slow start, but 14 points in a 10-second span in the third quarter led the Bills to a win.

Buffalo’s defensive secondary led the charge in shutting down the Browns passing game while its linebackers also came away with outstanding grades. The defensive line played well and the offensive line turned in a solid performance.

Through the first 36 minutes of their Week 13 game against the Cleveland Browns, it looked as though the Buffalo Bills might be in for another game like their Week 11 loss to the Miami Dolphins, a game in which they failed to score a touchdown.

Everything changed after a 4th-and-2 gamble, at the 8:36 mark of the third quarter, paid off with a 35-yard deep catch by Bills wide receiver Robert Woods, caught from quarterback Kyle Orton even through the defensive pass interference of Browns cornerback Buster Skrine.

On its next play, Buffalo scored a three-yard touchdown on a pass from Orton to Bills wide receiver Chris Hogan.

On the first play of the Browns’ subsequent offensive possession, Bills defensive end Jerry Hughes beat Browns left tackle Joe Thomas—despite a hold from Thomas—to catch Browns running back Terrance West in pursuit, force a fumble, recover the ball himself and return it 18 yards for a touchdown, giving the Bills 14 points in only 14 seconds.

That spurt gave the Bills a 14-3 lead from which they never looked back, as they ultimately won the game 26-10.

The Buffalo Bills are right in the thick of the AFC playoff race, currently sitting in a four-way tie for sixth place with a record of 5-3. The defense has really carried the team while the offense has been opportunistic enough to contribute to the winning record.

Overall through eight games, many defensive players have graded out very well while the offensive players have been more boom or bust in terms of individual performances.

During a few hours of extreme humidity at St. John Fisher College on Monday afternoon, I had the opportunity to take in the Buffalo Bills’ second practice of their 2014 training camp.

The team has many new faces and despite the injury to middle linebacker Kiko Alonso, defensive tackle Marcel Dareus’ off-field issues and Cordy Glenn’s mystery ailment, hope still springs eternal for the Bills’ embattled fan base.

Like the classic Clint Eastwood film, the theme of Monday’s training camp observations are The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.
