The second half of the Buffalo Bills’ season begins Sunday as they take on the Kansas City Chiefs, at 1 p.m. at Buffalo’s Ralph Wilson Stadium and to be televised on CBS, in a battle of two 5-3 teams jockeying for position in the battle for a wild card spot in the AFC.

There was some suspense leading up to the release of the Bills’ inactive list Sunday morning as two of the team’s key offensive plays, wide receiver Sammy Watkins and running back Fred Jackson, were both listed as questionable with groin injuries.

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.

If you missed Thursday’s Buffalo Bills preseason finale because of the local blackout in Western New York, you didn’t miss much. The Bills fans who watched it might already be trying to erase the game from their memory.

The Bills lost, 23-0, against the Detroit Lions to finish their preseason with a 1-4 record.

Thursday’s score will not matter as the regular season begins next week. Neither will any team’s preseason record. That said, the Bills will need to play drastically better, especially on offense, to have any chance of emerging as a contender and avoid giving the Cleveland Browns a very high selection with the first-round pick they traded to Cleveland in the Sammy Watkins deal this year.

The Buffalo Bills fell to 1-2 in the preseason after dropping Saturday night’s contest against the Pittsburgh Steelers by a score of 19-16. A lack of sound situational football, particularly on offense, kept the Bills from winning despite some positive play from their defense. The Bills only punted twice in 13 offensive series, while they controlled the ball for more than 35 minutes and ran 35 more plays on offense, but they only scored one touchdown.

The biggest positive of the game for the Bills came in escaping with no major injuries, including No. 4 overall pick Sammy Watkins, who left the game in the first quarter with a rib injury but was reported to be “fine” by NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport.

The Buffalo Bills selected three offensive linemen in the 2014 NFL Draft: Cyrus Kouandjio, Cyril Richardson and Seantrel Henderson. It appears that all three have the opportunity to carry significant roles as rookies this season. Along with veteran guard Chris Williams, the Bills added four linemen this offseason that are expected to find their way onto the 53-man roster.

Having already played in the Hall of Fame Game against the New York Giants and on Friday against the Carolina Panthers, the Bills have had two preseason games and will still play in three more, which gives the players more opportunities to demonstrate what they are capable of on the football field. Kouandjio, Richardson and Henderson all currently project as backups, but could they work their way into the starting lineup as the preseason progresses? We can take a look at what each of them has done so far and how each could fit into the team’s plans up front.
