(ET). The starting QB is expected to play 16 games, so the rating has to reflect his. By SaviorEdwards. The 2009 Buffalo Bills season was the 50th Professional Football season for the original American Football League team, and its 40th in the NFL. The teams went scoreless in the third quarter that was notable for Sanchez suffering a sprained Posterior cruciate ligament to his right knee. No matter who the starting tackles are, they will certainly be under the microscope this year. And he was definitely the biggest free agent addition in Buffalo since Drew Bledsoe. In their second-ever regular season game north of the border, Buffalo traveled to Toronto to take on divisional rivals the New York Jets. For the greater part of this decade the Buffalo Bills' offense has been put on the PUP. Buffalo got off to a fast start in the first quarter as quarterback Trent Edwards completed an 11-yard touchdown pass to rookie tight end Shawn Nelson. As a punt returner he’s among the best in the NFL, but as a pure wide receiver he’s average at best. I also think he'll break through and have a career year in terms of receptions, receiving yards and most importantly, TD receptions in 2009. He might be in trouble if Xavier Omon is a beast this summer. It just means he's a very good backup with potential and could start for the Bills or another team. The schedule includes the opponents, dates, and results. Let’s hope he doesn’t fail and is ready to rumble with the best 3-4 nose tackles not only in the division, but in the entire league. This stop led to the only points of the first half by the Browns, a 24 yard field goal by backup kicker Billy Cundiff. In the first quarter, the Bills came out firing as quarterback Trent Edwards completed a 32-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Lee Evans, safety Donte Whitner returning an interception 76 yards for a touchdown, and kicker Rian Lindell making a 31-yard field goal. If that’s truly the case, then he should have a few chances per game to make plays. But at worst they should be middle of the pack in 2009, barring major injuries at the skill positions and a complete offensive line implosion. The Bills began their season at Gillette Stadium for an AFL Legacy duel with their AFC East rival, the New England Patriots, in the first game of a MNF doubleheader. His playoff/championship experience, great blocking skills, and familiarity with a fast-paced offense, as well as all the years he played with Manning and company in Indianapolis should make him a definite asset. After a scoreless first quarter, Buffalo would find themselves trailing in the second as Dolphins kicker Dan Carpenter got a 33-yard field goal, followed by cornerback Vontae Davis returning an interception 23 yards for a touchdown. Patriots cornerback J.C. Jackson, seeing a bigger workload because of the absence of Stephon Gilmore (knee), picked off an Allen pass at the New England 26 and returned it to the Buffalo 49 with 1:38 to go before halftime. He also must silence the critics regarding his durability and stay healthy for a 16+ game season in 2009. With the win, not only did the Bills improve to 2–4, but the defense managed to record five interceptions (two for rookie safety Jairus Byrd, one for safety George Wilson, one for cornerback Reggie Corner, and one for linebacker Paul Posluszny). If Edwards can put it all together, then it’s possible that the 2009 squad could be a top 5-10 offense, even with an average/mediocre offensive line. Buffalo Bills Links, 10/28: Rookies show potential. Newton drove the Patriots to the 15, where Nick Folk kicked a 33-yard field goal on third-and-1 with eight seconds left to make the score 7-6. I do give him the benefit of the doubt and tend to believe that is the case. But hopefully he sticks around as a major contributor to this offense as we gear up for a playoff run. It’s boom or bust with this kid. As a guard, he’s probably a solid 7/10 at best, but there are legitimate concerns regarding his switch to right tackle in 2009. His rookie numbers weren’t eye-popping, but he could be a steal if he lives up to billing and takes a quantum leap this summer. 2009 Buffalo Bills Offense Preview: After years of futility, the Bills are looking to the past in order to move their offense into the future. In the second quarter, the Panthers got on the board as defensive tackle Hollis Thomas tackled running back Fred Jackson in his own endzone for a safety. Starting quarterback Trent Edwards (5/5 for 43 yards) left the game in the second quarter with a concussion. Newton was 15 of 25 for 174 yards. We’ll know a lot more in a few weeks, once camp is well under way, and hopefully he'll be able to handle more than just mop up duty. He’s missed a few games each year to injury and will miss a few more this year because of suspension. Chambers does have experience there, and Walker is the former RT. Even though he’s only played five years of organized football, Bell is a player to watch this summer. After a scoreless third quarter, the Bills increased their lead in the fourth quarter with Fitzpatrick completing a 2-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Lee Evans, followed by a 29-yard field goal from kicker Rian Lindell. Their actions will no doubt bring a smile of hope to fans of the early '90s super bowl teams still yearning for a return to greatness. But just as with the guard position, it’s all about potential for this group in 2009. The Patriots were without leading receiver Julian Edelman (place on injured reserve Saturday because of a knee injury) and N'Keal Harry (concussion). A 10-yard screen pass TD to Fred Jackson put Buffalo ahead 24-13 with 5:32 to go -- even though its new spotlight-grabber, Terrell Owens, barely caused a … Look for a lot of two back sets, which should create match up nightmares for defensive coordinators, once Lynch returns from suspension. Make no mistake about it, the 2009 season will be determined by one player. The Jets would answer with a 23-yard field goal from kicker Jay Feely. He’s already being called a steal because he was rated as high as late first round picks on many draft boards.
