Buffalo Bills quarterback J.P. Losman has a favorable impression of playing on the road from his college days at Tulane University.
"I liked the away games better when I was in college," Losman said. "It was funner because there weren't too many people at our home games. We'd play in the Superdome and we'd get 30,000 or 40,000 people maybe, but that stadium holds quite a bit more than that. So it was a little 'echoey' in there. I loved playing on the road."
Losman knows he's in for a hostile reception at Tampa's Raymond James Stadium.
"I'm expecting a tremendous amount of noise, a tremendous amount of people not cheering for me," he said.

The Bills entered their practice week in relatively good health. The only players out are tight end Tim Euhus (shoulder) and receiver Roscoe Parrish (wrist). Coach Mike Mularkey said Euhus is getting closer to returning from his torn muscle and may be able to start practicing next week. Parrish still has a cast on his wrist. Receiver Eric Moulds and running back Shaud Williams both sat out the team portion of the practice with sore ankles. They are listed as probable.
Tampa Bay guard Matt Stinchcomb, who started all last season, is questionable with a sore lower back. He sat out the opener and was replaced by rookie Dan Buenning, a fourth-round pick from Wisconsin.
