The Buffalo Bills were far from perfect. And this time it didn't matter.
For once, coach Chan Gailey found it a lot easier going over the blemishes in team meetings on Friday, because the Bills were coming off a 19-14 victory over the Miami Dolphins. It was a game that proved to Gailey that his team was finally capable of winning by overcoming its own deficiencies.
In snapping a three-game skid and winning for only the second time in seven games, the Bills (4-6) got a dominating performance from their high-priced defense to overcome an offense that continued to show a lack of finish.
The Bills now get an extended weekend break before returning to practice on Monday and preparing to play at Indianapolis on Nov. 25.
