One play stood out for Buffalo Bills right tackle Jordan Mills as he watched video of Oakland sackmaster Khalil Mack in last week's game against Kansas City. Mack used one arm to bull rush Chiefs tackle Eric Fisher backward into the lap of quarterback Alex Smith. "I looked at that play about 10 times and looked at what not to do," Mills said after the Bills' 34-14 vi…

Khalil Mack doesn’t have much to say about Buffalo these days. But he’ll make an exception for his favorite wing spot. The former University at Buffalo star and reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year’s fondness for Elmo’s Bar & Restaurant will be the subject of a feature for “The NFL Today” pregame show on CBS before the Bills' game against Mack and th…

Khalil Mack possessed traits that enraptured NFL scouts. Yeah, but could he fit into any defensive scheme? Mack was a hellacious pass-rusher for the University at Buffalo, dominating the Mid-American Conference and amassing school records. Yeah, but how would he stack up against pedigreed competition? He would erupt from his stance, use uncanny leverage skills …

Quarterback Derek Carr and Co. are coming off a big win in Week Seven, 31-30 over Kansas City, and come in with extra rest having played on Thursday Night Football. Carr threw for more than 400 yards in the win over the Chiefs, as Oakland's high-powered offense started to find itself. The Raiders w…

Khalil Mack vs. Jordan Mills It will not just be the Bills' right tackle against the Raiders' superstar edge rusher. The Bills often will have a running back or a tight end on Mack's side of the field. Mack rushes off right tackle 75 percent of the time and off left tackle 25 percent. One of the few times Mack was one-on-one with Mills in last season's game, Mack hit Ty…

Xs and Os

Oakland sackmaster Khalil Mack is a game-wrecker and the reigning NFL defensive player of the year. Expect the Bills to use a running back or a tight end to the side of right tackle Jordan Mills to help double-team No. 52 on most pass plays. Sometimes, opponents even try to triple-team him. In a game against Carolina last November, the Panthers used slot receiver Ke…

University at Buffalo red-shirt LeDarius Mack usually finds some way to watch his brother, Khalil, play on Sundays.

A super-quick release and a protective offensive scheme make it hard to force Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr into big mistakes. Carr was the least-sacked quarterback in the NFL last season, even though the Raiders attempted the ninth most passes in the league. Carr's career sack rate is sixth lowest in NFL history. He gets taken down just 3.99 percent of his pas…

Khalil Mack is coming back to Buffalo with the Oakland Raiders for the first time since he was drafted No. 5 overall in 2014 out of the University at Buffalo. He was chosen one slot after the Bills selected wide receiver Sammy Watkins.

Analysis

The standings were not supposed to look this way in Week Eight. The Oakland Raiders were supposed to be Super Bowl contenders entering 2017, with a Pro Bowl quarterback in Derek Carr and All-World defensive end in Khalil Mack. The Buffalo Bills were afterthoughts in the AFC, thought by many to simply be killing time until the 2018 draft. A funny thing happened once t…
