Two in a Row

The Buffalo Bills lost their second straight game, this time Jacksonville against the Jaguars. The game represented a typical bad game for the Bills this season. The J.P. Losman-led offense couldn't move the ball. The defense bent but didn't break until the end when the Jaguars added two touchdown within the last three minutes of the game to make it look worse than it was.

The Bills are 2-5 with Losman as a starter and 3-1 when Trent Edwards gets the nod. Loman has proven himself to be a competent and even flashy QB in small doses, something that would make him a valuable backup at this stage of career. He has also proven that he can't win consistently when he starts. He threw for 211 yards with 1 TD, but committed three turnovers, including two picks.

I caught the fourth quarter and Losman wasn't able to come threw in the clutch with his team down by 8. He threw a late interception, which drained the team of its remaining spirit and allowed Jacksonville to pour it on with 14 late points.

The loss of rookie running back Marshawn Lynch over the last two games as been huge. Without him, they're a struggling bunch without an offensive identity and a beat up defense. With him, they're a young exciting team, with a varied offense and an over-achieving defense.

The best part of the Bills has been the special teams on all sides. They'll need help from the other two sides of the ball down the stretch. The Bills have to start winning again immediately against Washington.
