The Buffalo Bills came into the 2015 NFL season with a lot of hope and have so far played up to those preseason expectations.
The Bills, with new head coach Rex Ryan in charge and Tyrod Taylor in his first season as a starting quarterback, have opened up with a 2-2 record that had seen them play well, until they capitulated to the New York Giants in week four.
Buffalo will look to bounce back on Sunday against the Tennessee Titans, and may be doing it with a new starting running back after Daniel "Boom" Herron joined the team last night.

The Bills have been going through somewhat of an injury nightmare at the running back position.
LeSean McCoy has been dealing with the same nagging hamstring injury for pretty much the entire season, while rookie back Karlos Williams suffered a concussion in the loss to the Giants on Sunday.
Mike Rodak of ESPN broke the news of Herron's signing on Twitter last night.
That leaves the Bills with just Boobie Dixon as their only established running back left, with Cierre Wood also being available after his promotion from the practice squad last week.
The Indianapolis Colts waived-injured Herron last month and then later released him from injured reserve. Herron has played in 25 games during his career to date, making three starts, and played well down the stretch and in the playoffs for the Colts last season.
