Buffalo Bills (3-5)
What they’ve done well: The Bills know how to intercept passes. Led by rookie safety Jairus Byrd, they had nine picks in their two-game winning streak over the Jets and Panthers, the most the team had recorded in a two-game span since 1967. Byrd, the son of former Chargers defensive back Gill Byrd, had two more in the 31-10 loss to the Houston Texans and has 7 at the halfway point. He is in position to challenge Dick “Night Train” Lane’s all-time record of 14 pick in one season.
What needs improvement: The Bills’ offense is inconsistent and that won’t change until quarterback Trent Edwards (concussion) is back. Buffalo has been using backup Ryan Fitzpatrick behind center and he doesn’t have the accuracy, consistency or arm strength to get the team rolling. The Bills rank 27th on offense and that unit could only muster 204 yards against the Texans.
