It's a long journey to reach the NFL playoffs and it's been a long time since Oakland and Buffalo played beyond the regular season.

Through one game so far, though, the Raiders and Bills have gotten off on the right foot to end their respective droughts.

Oakland looks to go 2-0 for the first time in nine years Sunday when it visits Buffalo, which heads into its home opener off one of the most decisive victories in franchise history.

The Raiders made new head coach Hue Jackson a winner in his debut, 23-20 at Denver on Monday night. Jason Campbell finished with two touchdowns and Sebastian Janikowski kicked three field goals, including an NFL record-tying 63-yarder just before halftime.

Oakland is trying to start with back-to-back wins for the first time since its last postseason appearance in 2002, when it eventually lost to Tampa Bay - and former Raiders head coach Jon Gruden - in the Super Bowl. Jackson understands the importance of a 2-0 start for a team that went 37-91 under Bill Callahan, Norv Turner, Art Shell, Lane Kiffin and Tom Cable after last being in the playoffs and knows success won't come easy.

"It would mean a ton to this football team," Jackson said Wednesday. "We know we have to travel, we know we're going back east, we know we're playing a team that is 1-0 also, and a team that played very well in Kansas City."

Buffalo is coming off last Sunday's stunning 41-7 rout of the defending AFC West champion Chiefs - the team's sixth-most lopsided victory ever. The Bills defense, which ranked last against the run last season, held Kansas City to 108 yards on 18 carries while winning for just the second time in the last six season openers.

"We're done patting everybody on the back," said Buffalo quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, who matched a career high with four scoring passes. "Our guys are looking forward to the next game and continuing to get better every game."

For the Bills go 2-0 for the first time since 2008, the offensive line will need to handle a Raiders rush defense that limited Denver to just 38 yards on the ground. Oakland has finished 29th or lower in run defense each of the last four years, allowing an average of 148.7 yards per game.

Defensive tackle Richard Seymour finished with two of Oakland's four sacks Monday, and no Raider defender had more than five tackles.

"Up front, this is maybe the biggest, most physical team that we'll see," Fitzpatrick said. "All those guys have great size, they have great motors, they're going to be able to get some pressure on me."

While Buffalo's defensive line had no trouble stopping Kansas City's running backs, the unit could have trouble against Oakland, which ran for 190 yards in the opener. After rushing for more than 1,100 yards last year, Darren McFadden carried the ball 22 times for 150 yards in his 2011 debut - the third-highest total of his career.

"This week is a big challenge for us," Bills nose tackle Kyle Williams. "It's another team that was high up on the rushing charts. Good running back, solid offensive line."

The Bills also boast a premier running back in Fred Jackson, who had 20 carries for 112 yards against the Chiefs. It was Jackson's eighth 100-yard game and fourth in the last nine contests.

He isn't ready to have a championship parade just yet.

"You've got to be confident in yourself and know what you're capable of as a team," he said. "But by no means did we win the Super Bowl (Sunday). ... It's one win. That's all it is."

Oakland could have a key piece on offense making his debut Sunday. Tight end Kevin Boss missed Monday's game due to a knee injury suffered late last month, but practiced Wednesday.

"It's been a long time, but it's good to have him out there in a limited capacity moving around and catching balls, but we'll see where he is as we keep moving forward," Hue Jackson said.

Boss, who caught 119 passes and 18 touchdowns in four seasons with the New York Giants and helped them win a Super Bowl as a rookie, signed a four-year deal with the Raiders in August after Oakland lost Zach Miller to Seattle in free agency.
The game marks the 36th league meeting between the Raiders and Bills. The Raiders hold a 19-16 advantage over Buffalo since 1960 when the teams began pro football competition as original members of the American Football League.

The teams played twice a year from 1960-65 and 1967-68 and have played twice in the postseason—in the 1990 AFC Championship Game and the 1993 AFC Divisional Playoff contest.

The folks at OddsShark opened up the line on the Oakland Raiders-Buffalo Bills game and the Bills opened as four point favorites. The line has since come down a point to three, but the Bills remained favored. The over/under for the game sits at 43 points.

I watched Inside The NFL and everyone took the Bills.

I'm used to Sapp's fat a.ss hating and even that other lame Sims being a d!ck. I was hoping my boy Collinsworth would support us, but no... again, all the 'experts' are picking against the Raiders.

I hope you talmbout our front 4, and if so then...


yall aint stoppin our run game, McFadden is too versatile. Charles is a 1 dimensional runner. McFadden can hurt you between the seams or on the outsides, and that n*gga can catch and block. Best back in the league and only 2nd to AD if you wanna say he's better. That's the only dude seeing RUN DMC.

S Huff, WR Ford and DT Seymour miss second straight practice

Wide receiver Jacoby Ford, defensive tackle Richard Seymour and free safety Michael Huff are among those who aren’t practicing today.

That doesn’t rule out any of the three from playing against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. However, it does make them less likely, given they haven’t practiced at all this week.

Huff is nursing a groin injury that he suffered against the Denver Broncos on Monday night. Ford strained a hamstring and Seymour hurt his ribs in the same game.

Seymour had two of Oakland’s five sacks against the Broncos, so the Raiders would be hard-pressed to replace him from a production standpoint. If he can’t play, it means more playing time for Desmond Bryant and John Henderson.

Nick Miller ran several plays opposite Darrius Heyward-Bey at wide receiver with the first-team offense this morning. The smart money says, Chaz Schilens and Heyward-Bey start, with Denarius Moore and Miller receiving added playing time if Ford can’t play Sunday.

On the bright side for the Raiders, running back Darren McFadden (shoulder), quarterback Jason Campbell (foot), defensive end Jarvis Moss (foot) and cornerback Joe Porter (concussion) are at practice and looking fine.

Three new officials are presiding over practice, at coach Hue Jackson’s request. Jackson said the officials who worked Wednesday’s practice weren’t there to collect dust.

“I told them, ‘Throw a flag, throw it. Don’t hesitate,” Jackson said. “And they didn’t. They were very aggressive, and we only had a few, so that was a good thing. We won the battle (Wednesday). We only had about … three or four. It wasn’t 15, I promise you that.”
