The Buffalo Bills are 4-0 at home this season, and currently 5-3 on the season.  The Saints are looking for seven straight wins on the road this Sunday in New Era Field in Buffalo.  "They've been able to generate a bunch of turnovers. They play with a bunch of confidence up there. We have to understand what wins up there," Saints QB Drew Brees told me.  The Bills fans are some of the most loyal in the NFL, and for the first time in a while the Bills are feeling good about their playoff chances in November and the Saints expect a loud and raucous crowd on Sunday.  

Need for Snead:  Willie Snead has virtually been invisible in the previous five games coming off his three game suspension.  Snead injured his hamstring upon returning from suspension, and has been very quiet in the offensive attack of the Saints.  Snead has kind of been eased back into action in the Saints offense.  Snead has just one reception on the season and has been target just three times in four games. Coach Sean Payton says Snead will get more involved sooner rather than later.  "It’s his third week, really his second full week (at) full speed and that’s kind of a long time off. He’s going to continue to be worked into the plan.” If you read between the lines here, Payton is telling you that Snead just hasn't been as healthy as the team might have wanted him to be coming off the suspension. 

AK-41:  As in Alvin Kamara, the Saints rookie running back has been sensational.  He took home the week 9 award for the Fed Ex ground player of the week for his performance against the Buc's in a win.  Kamara is leading the NFL averaging 6 yards per carry. 

Vaccaro and Armstead:  Miss practice again on Thursday. Saints Safety Kenny Vaccaro, is battling a groin injury he suffered in the win over Tampa.  Terron Armstead missed practice due to a shoulder injury that he's battled all year long.
