NFL already tossing Buffalo Bills into the spoiler bin

By Tim Graham

So it's only Week Ten, yet it already has come to this for the Buffalo Bills.

The dreaded spoiler role.

I'm watching Indianapolis Colts rookie Andrew Luck try to push his team three games over .500 with a victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars tonight, and a commercial just came on for next Thursday night's game between the Miami Dolphins and Buffalo Bills in Ralph Wilson Stadium.

The narrator said this:

NFL Network presents "Thursday Night Football." Reggie Bush and the Dolphins look to take the next step. But the Bills are determined to spoil their rivals' season.

"Thursday Night Football," next Thursday at 8. Live on NFL Network.

And it's not even Veteran's Day yet. The Dolphins were supposed to be rebuilding, and they're getting billed as the headliners, with no mention of any Bills players.

Man, what the hell happened?
