Good morning from Ralph Wilson Stadium

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- What a magnificent day for football. Problem for the Buffalo Bills' box office is that it's a magnificent day for a lot of other endeavors, too.

The Bills weren't able to sell out Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, aka the Trent Edwards Bowl. For the first time in 27 games, the Bills won't be on local television.

While you might think the weather might cajole some fans out of their recliners and into Ralph Wilson Stadium, there just doesn't seem to be any enthusiasm for a 0-4 team even though the Bills are actually slight favorites.

I left a little later for the stadium than I normally do, and yet I've never had an easier time getting here. Might be a lot of no-shows in addition to the unsold tickets.

The Sunday forecast is a high of 69 degrees, no chance of rain and winds topping out at 12 mph.

This is the AFC East's only game Sunday. The New England Patriots and Miami Dolphins are on their bye weeks. The New York Jets will play the Minnesota Vikings on Monday night at the Meadowlands.

I'll check back later with the inactive lists.
