CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Brandon Beane's parents knew it was pointless to say goodbye before the Buffalo Bills' charter buses pulled away from Bank of America Stadium.

You could say Sunday's game meant nothing, and, in the grand scheme, that's true. The Buffalo Bills and New York Jets had been eliminated from postseason scenarios. Two scuzzy clubs mopping up the year. Big whoop. But the game did mean something.
