Scott Chandler caught four passes for 37 yards and one touchdown in the Bills' Week 16 win over the Raiders.

He was targeted six times on the day. On his touchdown, Chandler beat LB Ray-Ray Armstrong, who fell down on the play. It was Chandler's first end-zone visit since Week 12 and just his third score of the season. Chandler and the Bills head to Denver to wrap up the season in Week 17.
Dec 21 - 8:20 PM

Chris Hogan caught three passes for 43 yards in the Bills' Week 16 loss to the Raiders.

The Bills' slot receiver was targeted eight times. He was quiet for much of the day before turning a short catch into a 31-yard gain late in the fourth quarter, eventually setting up Robert Woods' 30-yard touchdown. Hogan and the Bills head to Denver to wrap up their season in Week 17.
Dec 21 - 8:12 PM

Robert Woods caught seven passes for 52 yards and one touchdown in the Bills' Week 16 loss to the Raiders.

He managed just 22 yards on his first six catches before reeling in a garbage-time 30-yard touchdown. Woods did a great job to keep moving on the broken play, allowing Kyle Orton to escape the pocket and find his receiver in the corner of the end zone. Woods is just a chain-moving intermediate receiver with little big-play ability. He and the Bills wrap up their season in Denver next week.
Dec 21 - 8:07 PM

Sammy Watkins caught three passes for 75 yards and one touchdown in the Bills' Week 16 loss to the Raiders.

He finished second on the team behind Fred Jackson (12) with his seven targets. Watkins kicked off the scoring with a 42-yard touchdown grab in D.J. Hayden's coverage. His other big play was a 15-yard catch just before halftime to set up a field goal. Watkins' touchdown was his first since Week 8, while his 75 yards were the second-most the past eight games. The Bills end the year in Denver.
Dec 21 - 8:03 PM

C.J. Spiller rushed four times for minus-four yards and caught four passes for 14 yards in the Bills' Week 16 loss to the Raiders.

It was Spiller's first game back from a stint on I.R./recall with a broken collarbone. He was out-touched by Fred Jackson 15-8, but immediately stepped into the No. 2 role behind Jackson, supplanting Bryce Brown. The Raiders played stout run defense, and Spiller was unable to break anything in space. He may be playing his final games as a member of the Bills in Week 17 at Denver.
Dec 21 - 8:00 PM

Fred Jackson rushed for 10 yards on six carries and caught nine passes for 93 yards in the Bills' Week 16 loss to the Raiders.

He led the Bills in receiving, but was greatly aided by a 34-yard catch-and-run late in garbage time. With C.J. Spiller returning from a broken collarbone, Jackson won the touch battle 15-8. Kyle Orton ended up throwing the ball 49 times in the loss. Jackson and the eliminated Bills end the season in New England.
Dec 21 - 7:52 PM

Kyle Orton completed 32-of-49 passes for 329 yards, three touchdowns, and two interceptions in the Bills' 26-24, Week 16 loss to the Raiders.

The loss eliminates the Bills from the playoffs. Orton's stats don't look bad on paper, but his interceptions were killers. His first one went to Charles Woodson over the middle trying to get it to Scott Chandler, while the second one came late in the fourth quarter again down the middle of the field on an overthrow. Orton breathed life into the Buffalo offense when he first got the nod to start, but he's since been exposed. The Bills will wrap up their season in New England. E.J. Manuel may get the call under center.
Dec 21 - 7:43 PM

Bills CB Stephon Gilmore exited Week 16 against the Raiders with a possible head injury.

Gilmore smacked the back of his head on the turf and immediately was helped up and walked to the locker room. Ron Brooks is in the game at corner for the Bills.
Dec 21 - 7:01 PM

C.J. Spiller (collarbone) is active for Week 16 against the Raiders, as expected.

Spiller was listed as probable. He's back after an eight-week stay on I.R./recall. With Spiller active, Bryce Brown is a healthy scratch. Also inactive for the Bills are WR Deonte Thompson, CB Ross Cockrell, LB Larry Dean, LB Randell Johnson, OL Cyrus Kouandjio, and TE Chris Gragg.
Dec 21 - 3:00 PM

C.J. Spiller (collarbone) is listed as probable for Week 16 against the Raiders.

It's unclear what Spiller's role will be in his return from I.R./recall due to a broken collarbone. Fred Jackson has been handling the vast majority of the work in the Buffalo backfield of late. Spiller can't be trusted in fantasy lineups during title week, even against a Raiders defense that gets gashed by running backs via the pass. Oakland has surrendered eight receiving touchdowns to running backs.
Dec 19 - 12:39 PM

The Bills have yet to decide if C.J. Spiller (collarbone) will be active for Week 16.

"I think he looks good," coach Doug Marrone said Thursday. "It's just a matter of waiting until the end of the week and make a move there." Marrone went on to say Spiller has looked "explosive," and is "moving well." Spiller will change the pace for Fred Jackson if he's active against the Raiders.
Dec 18 - 5:50 PM

C.J. Spiller (broken collarbone) took his pads off halfway through Wednesday's practice.

"Yeah, I was just getting used to" wearing them "again," Spiller said. "It's been two months since I've had them on so I just wanted to see what it felt like to put them back." It's a reminder that he can't be counted on for a major role in Sunday's game at Oakland after not taking any contact since Week 7.
Dec 18 - 8:36 AM

C.J. Spiller (shoulder) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Spiller was activated from I.R./recall, but isn't a lock to return this week. He won't be more than a boom-or-bust FLEX option if he plays against Oakland.
Dec 17 - 7:45 PM

Bills activated RB C.J. Spiller (broken collarbone) from injured reserve/designated to return.

According to coach Doug Marrone, Spiller's "readiness" for Week 16 will be gauged in practice. The Bills' running game really hasn't missed a beat in Spiller's absence, so it's unlikely Marrone will force him back into the lineup if he doesn't believe he's ready. If Spiller does go, he'll be a dart throw FLEX option against the Raiders' pathetic defense.
Dec 15 - 3:11 PM

Sammy Watkins managed one catch for 28 yards in the Bills' Week 15 win over the Packers.

He was targeted six times. Watkins has been held under 40 yards in five of his last six games. He hasn't scored a touchdown since Week 8. Watkins will be a boom-or-bust WR3 when the Bills travel to The Black Hole for Week 16.
