The Buffalo Bills' playoff hopes may be over, but their season is not. With four games remaining, the Bills' players still have something to play for: their future with the team.
With a new coaching staff led by Doug Marrone, the Bills are building their team with a new direction compared to the vision of the previous coaching staff. As a result, some players are bound to be more of a fit for the new look than others who were brought in to carry out the old model.
Aside from players who may or may not be in the long-term plans of the team, there are other players who simply need to show they are on a favorable trajectory, and that they haven't taken a step back in 2013.
Here's a look at some players who need to step their game up and finish strong to prove they have what it takes to be a long-term building block for the Bills.
