Since joining the National Football League in 1970, the Buffalo Bills have had 48 first-round picks. Much like every other team in the league, there have been some colossal hits and misses and some quality players in between.

After a six-win season in 2013, the Buffalo Bills’ brain trust of general manager Doug Whaley, head coach Doug Marrone and team president Russ Brandon will look to lead the team to improvement in 2014. A major part of that process will play out this offseason as the Bills look to add talent to their roster through the NFL draft, free agency and possibly trades.

The Bills especially need to improve the talent of their offense, which ranked 19th in the NFL in total yards (338.1 per game) and 22nd in points scored (21.2 per game). Still, from quarterback EJ Manuel to left tackle Cordy Glenn and others in between, the Bills have some core pieces to continue building around this offseason.

Domination.

That one word defines today’s game against the Dolphins. Buffalo’s defense was dominant against the Dolphins. The defense accounted for seven sacks and two interceptions against the Dolphins, who looked unprepared to play.

Ryan Tannehill was held to 83 yards passing and Matt Moore passed for 53 yards and two interceptions. On the ground, Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas combined for 12 rushes for 14 yards. To say nothing went right for the Dolphins’ offense is an understatement.

Buffalo’s defense was anchored by Kyle Williams who had an outstanding game. He sacked Tannehill twice and blew up a few other plays during the game. Nickell Robey added two sacks of his own and Jerry Hughes, Mario Williams and Da’Norris Searcy all added one sack apiece.

Buffalo’s interceptions came from Jim Leonhard and Leodis McKelvin.

Offensively, Lewis went 15-of-25 for 193 yards and one interception. He also added 13 yards rushing.

Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller kept the Dolphins at bay as the two accounted for 188 yards on 39 carries and one touchdown.

It was a gutsy performance for the Bills who were without Stevie Johnson. During the game, Marquise Goodwin suffered an injury and Robert Woods was ejected for throwing a punch. Woods still led the Bills in receiving with 3 catches for 70 yards. In spite of all of the wide receiver losses, the Bills did a great job of controlling the clock.

The 2013 season is lost, but this win is a positive step in the right direction for 2014. The Bills are now 3-2 in the AFC East. A win over the Patriots would give them their first winning record in the division since 2007.

Christmas is still a few days away, but the Bills gave their fans an early present today by squishing the fish.

The Buffalo Bills traveled to Florida for the second time in as many weeks to face a Jacksonville Jaguars team who came in on a three-game winning streak after starting the season with eight straight losses.

The Bills came into the game on a two-game losing streak, while rookie quarterback EJ Manuel was coming off a dreadful, four-interception performance in Buffalo’s Week 14 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  This game was a good day for Manuel to rebuild his confidence, however, as the Jaguars came into the game ranked 29th in total defense and 30th in points allowed.

Due to key takeaways by the defense and three Manuel touchdowns, the Bills (5-9) pulled out a 27-20 win against Jacksonville (4-10) Sunday.
