Buffalo (3-5)

Pleasant: C.J. Spiller showed signs of being a dangerous rushing threat during Weeks 15 and 16 last season, but nobody could have expected the giant leap he has taken. Spiller already has more rushing yards (562) than last season and has gained them at a ridiculous clip of 7.2 yards per attempt. Buffalo’s offensive line also deserves credit for paving the way for such success.

Unpleasant: The free-agent signings of two ballyhooed ends (Mario Williams and Mark Anderson), the first-round selection of a projected shutdown cornerback (Stephon Gilmore) and switch to Dave Wannstedt as coordinator were supposed to fix Buffalo’s long-standing defensive woes. Hardly. The Bills rank among the NFL’s bottom two units in total yards allowed (417.9), per-carry rushing average (5.7) and third-down efficiency (46.1 percent). - Alex Marvez (AP Photo/Paul Connors)
