A Buffalo Bills victory wasn't enough. Not only did they have to beat the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, but the Bills also needed help from at least one other team, maybe two, to end the longest active playoff skid in North American big-league sports.

While it must bolster Jim Kelly's ego to know he has been irreplaceable for 20 years, he'd rather watch another quarterback take his Buffalo Bills back to the playoffs. Snow falling on a frigid January afternoon, a miserable opponent and Bills fans going bonkers for their boys ... That's what Kelly and Super Bowl teammates Thurman Thomas, Bruce Smith and Steve Tasker…

The Bills’ best defensive backs might as well have formed a musical trio and sung in harmony. All were in unison about what doomed them last week against the San Diego Chargers. Corey Graham practically spat the words on the locker room floor. “Pick plays,” he said. “They picked us,” Stephon Gilmore said, “and we didn’t adjust.” Aaron Williams added the only way t…

Quick highlights from the Buffalo Bills' loss to the San Diego Chargers in Ralph Wilson Stadium ... What it means: The Bills have a blemish.
