QUOTE FOR THE DAY
Bills head coach Chan Gailey on Demetrius Bell and Andy Levitre still splitting snaps at left tackle — “I think that is exactly where we are at, they are splitting reps. Let’s see who is playing the best come Saturday night. We have a lot of work to do.  It’s almost not fair to Andy because of throwing him in there so late in the game and ask him to get in there this week. He has done it before and we think we need to give him a shot to do that.”
