The Buffalo Bills have new owners, this ending a summer long process to sell the Bills after the passing of long-time owner Ralph Wilson.  The Patriots come into town and the future of the Bills in WNY is secure.  Brandon Spikes had this game circled on his calendar, did you? Spikes is ready to face his former team and with an offensive line not really set for the Patriots, the Bills defense should have a field day going after Tom Brady.  There is no better place to be than to be in Orchard Park this Sunday at 1 pm.  [ESPN]

Ron Brooks was carted of the field on Sunday against the Lions, after going head over heels while covering a punt and bounced off of his head.  Although he didn’t return until practice on Wednesday, he was ready to come back to the game after they took him to the hospital.  He was ready to go.  He heard a pop in his neck, but never lost feeling in his extremities.  He wanted back into that game.  Buffalo listed him as limited on Wednesday, but he was a full participant and is ready for the Patriots on Sunday.  [Buffalo Bills]

Marcell Dareus had a bumpy off season to say the least.  After having to arrest and still dealing with some of the court issues right now, missing all of the voluntary practices during the summer, it seems that Dareus is back on track.  He had a defensive player of the week awarded to him last week for contributing 3 sacks to Buffalo’s leading 17 sacks for the season.  Dareus has 5 on the season and leads the team as well.  He is having fun out their and I think that is the ticket for him to stay on track.  [Niagara Gazette]

As of right now, entering week 6, the Buffalo Bills have the easiest remaining schedule than any other team in the league.  The remaining schedule for the Bills has opponents combined record at 22-29 a .431 percentage.  The Bills still have to face the 3 of the worst 4 teams in the AFC West and NFC North divisions.  They also still have two match-ups against the 1-4 Jets.  Can it get any easier than this?
