Saints Nation: Saints @ Bills pregame

The Saints quest to run their record to 3-0 runs through Buffalo this weekend, on Sunday, as the Saints play the Bills at 3:05pm Central, 4:05pm Eastern. The Bills are 1-1 following a last minute collapse to the Patriots in Foxboro, and a blowout win at home against Tampa Bay. The Bills are currently 14th offensively, and 28th defensively (including 31st against the pass). Good matchup on paper for Drew Brees and the Saints' passing attack. The Saints are 1st offensively, and 21st defensively.

Out for the Saints: Jammal Brown (hip), Darnell Dinkins (ankle), Mike Bell (knee).

Questionable for Saints: Lance Moore (hamstring), Kendrick Clancy (knee).

Other notes:

Last time these two teams played, the Saints won 19-7 in 2005 at the Alamodome in San Antonio. This was the Saints second "home" game after being displaced from Hurricane Katrina, the first "home" game being against the Giants in New York.

Fullback Corey McIntyre and Strong Safety Brian Scott of the Bills have both played for the Saints in their career.

Former LSU Tigers Josh Reed and Kyle Williams are both on the Bills' roster.
