The Bills are off to an 0-2 start and Edwards has thrown for just 241 yards in the two losses. The Bills rank last in total offensive yards through the first two weeks of the season.

Patriots cornerback Brandon Meriweather joined the Dale & Holley show Monday morning and explained why he didn't start in Sunday's loss to the Jets. "The coaches were doing whatever they felt was best for the team at the time," he said. "I haven't been myself in practice. The coaches wanted to show me just because I went [to the Pro Bowl]. I still have to come and play. Basically, that was my fault that I'm not on the field as much."
Meriweather admitted to not heeding the coaches' instructions, leading to his demotion. Explained the cornerback: "I was trying a lot of things in camp just to see if they worked. And they weren't. Instead of me stopping trying them and doing exactly what I was coached, I kept trying them."
Consistency is Meriweather's other key concern. "I can't be a Pro Bowl-caliber player on one play and then a practice squad-caliber player on another play," he...
Patriots defensive lineman Vince Wilfork made his weekly appearance on the Dale & Holley show Monday and dissected his team's collapse vs. the Jets Sunday. "I'm kind of pissed that we didn't [win]," he said. "Oh, well, what can you do now? Look at film and move on. Get ready for Buffalo this week."
Wilfork said the Patriots coaches prepared the team for what the Jets did, but the players did not step up in the second half. "We had some opportunities out there to make the plays, and we just didn't make the plays," he said. "It wasn't anything they were doing that we didn't expect they were going to do. We didn't make the plays when we needed to. When we needed plays, it was like we were searching for someone else to make it instead of taking upon ourself and going out there and getting it. That's what it is. We've got to get better. We've got to be tuned in. We've got to be aggressive. First half we...
CBS Sports NFL analyst Boomer Esiason checked in with the Dennis & Callahan show for his weekly visit and discussed the Patriots' 28-14 loss to the Jets. "I think you saw a really desperate Jets team defend their home turf," Esiason said.
Esiason said the Patriots' lack of a pass rush is a problem that needs to be fixed. "You can't let an opposing quarterback stand back there without pressure," he said. "I think that has to be priority No. 1 for Bill Belichick: 'How the hell can I get pressure on the quarterback so that the secondary is not exposed.' "
Esiason said the Jets deserve some credit for letting Mark Sanchez have some more freedom than they did in a Week 1 loss to the Ravens. "The fact is, a lot of people were down on the Jets, were down on them offensively," Esiason said. "A lot of people, me included, felt that they had the bubble wrap on Mark Sanchez. They...
