While its a desperation game for both teams, I think it sets up better for the Bills seeing as they're coming off of a game they should have won and will be upset and ready to play.
Like I said, I think they lose the next 2 games.
Tennessee plays outdoors, so I don't think that will be much of a problem. Buffalo lost Fred Jackson, while CJ seems to be finding his groove: 23-190 IN THE COLD RAIN
. Still, it took a trick play on a kickoff return to put the tAcks on top. I just don't see being able to call this game until it's over. Weather won't be the deciding factor.

With 5 weeks and 3 less than stellar teams to practice against, I can see Kubiak, if he's at all the QB guru he's portrayed as, getting a good feel for Yates and putting him in situations where he can succeed. I don;t see that as being run-run-pass-punt, either. Yates has a different skill set that he brings to the table, and as long as the game doesn't overwhelm him, Kubes should be able to find a comfort zone and gameplan for it. Right now, Kubes needs to plan to win the winnable games (Carolina, Indy, Tennessee) and make Yates as comfortable as possible. Hell, with our D, we might still run the table. Gotta keep the faith.
