The Buffalo Bills were able to get a win on Thursday night over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and now go into a "mini-bye" with 10 days to rest before they are back on primetime. That game will be against the Cincinnati Bengals, the team that ended their season last year and could have playoff implications this season.
This extended break couldn't come at a better time as it gives the Bills a chance to reassess after three weeks where they struggled and had to figure out ways to replace key players on their defense due to injuries, like Matt Milano, Tre'Davious White and DaQuan Jones.
Before their next game, the NFL has the trade deadline on October 31st and it should be noted that the Buffalo Bills did clear some cap space last week by restructuring Dion Dawkins' contract. This could be an indication they are looking to make a move and if they do, it would make sense to be on the defensive side of the ball.
