BUFFALO, NY (WKBW/Jeff Russo) Another brutal day for the Buffalo offense led to a 34-7 loss at Green Bay on Sunday.

The Bills offense was held to just 186 yards against the Packers. Trent Edwards finished the day 11-18 passing for 102 yards and two interceptions. He was also sacked four times. Edwards had little time to pass for most of the day as the Buffalo offensive line couldn't stand up to the Packers pass rush. Packers linebacker Clay Matthews finished the day with three sacks.

"If you feel ok about losing, we don't want you around.", said Bills Head Coach Chan Gailey after the loss. "It better hurt when you lose. If guys are not hurt or down a little bit, I don't want them around. We can be a good football team, but we are not.", said Gailey.

The Bills said they wanted to establish the running game against the Packers, and used running back Marshawn Lynch to try and do so early. As the feature back, Lynch finished the day with 64 yards rushing on 17 carries. Fred Jackson carried the ball 9 times for 39 yards. Rookie C.J. Spiller, who was named starting running back before the season, didn't get a carry until late in the fourth quarter. He finished with only one carry for 3 yards.

The Packers scored on their first three drives of the game, and led 13-0 before the Bills offense finally got things going. After finishing the first quarter with no yards of offense, the Bills marched marched 80 yards on 8 plays for their only score of the game. Fred Jackson capped off the drive with a 3 yard touchdown run.

The Bills trailed 13-7 at the half, but were outscored 21 to nothing the rest of the way. The Packers took advantage of two Trent Edwards interceptions in the second half. The first came when Steve Johnson couldn't haul in an Edwards pass on 3rd and 8. Brandon Chillar would pick off the tip. Then in the 4th, Edwards hit Roscoe Parrish on 2nd and 10 but Parrish would bobble the ball and it would end up in Morgan Burnett's hands. Both turnovers would lead to Packers touchdowns.

Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers finished the day 19-of-29 passing on the day for 255 yards and two scores. The 0-and-2 Bills now get ready to head to Gillette Stadium to take on the New England Patriots next Sunday.
