ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- The Ralph Wilson Stadium lights are lit for the Oakland Raiders and Buffalo Bills on a mild, but hazy Sunday afternoon. Kickoff temperature will be around 65 degrees.

The biggest name on the inactive list is Raiders running back Justin Fargas. Rookie Darren McFadden will make his first NFL start.

A Bills victory would give them a 3-0 start for the first time since 1992. Head coach Dick Jauron never has been 3-0.

If Bills receiver Lee Evans has 93 yards receiving this afternoon, he will become the fastest player to 4,000 yards in team history. If he does it next week at St. Louis, he would tie Frank Lewis, who did it in 68 games.

Legendary Bills defensive end Bruce Smith will be enshrined on the Wall of Fame at halftime. He'll be the 25th honoree. I just left Smith's pregame news conference and returned to the press box. I'll post some of his comments shortly.
