The Buffalo Bills have been an ocean away since last Sunday's disappointing loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.
That distance, however, didn't tone down the heat coach Rex Ryan is taking after his team has started the season 3-3 – and looked pedestrian on defense at times in doing so.
With a big game against Jacksonville looming inside Wembley Stadium in Week Seven, here is a look at the big storylines before kickoff:
• Get ready for the blitz. Bills defensive players say it's coming Sunday against the Jaguars.
• This week's scouting report contains an item on the deep passing of Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles, as well as a look at how the Bills' injury situation isn't all that different from other teams.
