The Buffalo Bills sit at 2-3 after five weeks and the most difficult portion of their schedule. With a rookie quarterback taking his lumps Authentic Tremaine Edmunds Jersey , Buffalo isn’t completely out of it in a crowded AFC playoff field.The Kansas City Chiefs are the lone undefeated team in the conference and the Cincinnati Bengals are 4-1. Most of the rest of the AFC is mired in a huge logjam somewhere between 2-3 and 3-2. Then the Oakland Raiders and Indianapolis Colts are bringing up the rear.Buffalo’s next two games are against teams behind or tied with them in the standings. They can really get a running start into their Monday night showdown against the New England Patriots looming at the end of October.Here is the complete AFC playoff picture:1. Kansas City Chiefs (5-0)2. Cincinnati Bengals (4-1)3. New England Patriots (3-2, win over MIA)4. Tennessee Titans (3-2, win over JAX)5t. Los Angeles Chargers (3-2)5t. Baltimore Ravens (3-2)5t. Miami Dolphins (3-2)5t. Jacksonville Jaguars (3-2)9t. Cleveland Browns (2-2-1)9t. Pittsburgh Steelers (2-2-1)11t. Buffalo Bills (2-3)11t. Houston Texans (2-3)11t. New York Jets (2-3)11t. Denver Broncos (2-3)15t. Oakland Raiders (1-4)15t. Indianapolis Colts (1-4)Buffalo Bills sign quarterback Derek Anderson The Buffalo Bills have done what many have been suggesting all season - they signed a veteran quarterback to help mentor rookie Josh Allen . Former Carolina Panthers quarterback Derek Anderson has been signed to help Allen develop.The 35-year-old spent the last seven years with the Panthers Authentic Kelvin Benjamin Jersey , overlapping with current Bills head coach Sean McDermott and general manager Brandon Beane. He helped former number one overall pick Cam Newton come into the league.Anderson also spent one season with the Arizona Cardinals after spending the first four seasons of his career with the Cleveland Browns. While he has only started four games in the last seven years, he has 47 NFL starts and has appeared in 76 NFL games with over 10,000 passing yards.This move makes perfect sense. He’s exactly the type of veteran that can help Allen through his progression. Quarterbacks coach David Culley doesn’t have a lot of experience coaching that position group and second-year man Nathan Peterman was the only other person in the QB room after the trade of AJ McCarron. To make room for Anderson Womens LeSean McCoy Jersey , the Bills released safety Dean Marlowe, who was called up from the practice squad last week after injuries to Micah Hyde and Rafael Bush. Marlowe played every defensive snap against the Titans.
