With Fred Jackson and Marshawn Lynch likely missing the preseason, rookie C.J. Spiller will need to get enough reps with the first team in case he needs to carry the load at the start of the regular season.
The injuries to Jackson and Lynch are huge hits, as the BIlls' offense is already anemic.
Their next game is Thursday night against the Indianapolis Colts.
Brandon Marshall's first gametime action featured a sloppy field and two boneheaded drops. Marshall's frustration continued in practice this week, as he dropped an easy touchdown pass during team drills. He proceeded to switch positions for a moment, turning into a punter as he booted the football over the fence at the Davie facility.
Brandon needs game reps, which is why the preseason is so important (though many seem to think it is not).
Miami plays at Jacksonville on Saturday night.
New England Patriots
Filling in for Wes Welker, Julian Edelman showed exactly the Patriots can afford to let Welker get healthy and not rush him onto the field.
Edelman showed many of the traits that Welker does, running precise routes, catching the ball on the run, and quickly turning the play upfield while amassing yards after the catch.
With Torry Holt's season-ending injury, Edelman will likely be used much more.
The Patriots play at Atlanta Thursday night.
New York Jets
Against the New York Giants, the Jets defense still proved to be stifling, but the true story was the explosiveness of LaDainian Tomlinson. He showed effectiveness catching passes out of the backfield, and would have scored on a run, but it was called back for holding.
Both of the Jets lines played with power and control, dominating their end of the line of scrimmage.
The Jets will see the field Saturday, playing at Carolina.
