Abram Elam is starting for the Chiefs at free safety today because of an injury to starter Kendrick Lewis. I'm not sure this is a great thing for the Bills. Four seasons ago, as a Jet, Elam etched his name into the annals of all-time Bills killers with two critical plays in crushing Buffalo defeats.
Elam didn't play favorites, either. One play in the fateful 2008 season came against Trent Edwards, the other vs. J.P. Losman.
In the Jets' 26-17 win in Orchard Park that season, Elam picked off an Edwards pass and returned it 92 yards for a touchdown.
Six weeks later, with the Bills' nursing a 3-point lead on the road, they made the dubious decision to roll out J.P. Losman near his goal-line. Elam hit Losman from behind and forced a fumble, which was returned 11 yards for the winning touchdown by Shaun Ellis in a 31-27 Jets victory.
Over/under on Elam takeaways against Ryan Fitzpatrick today?
