The Bills came away with another solid win in Week 8 with a Sunday Night Football victory over the Green Bay Packers. Buffalo improved its record to 6-1 on the season, while the Packers dropped to 3-5.

The Bills did suffer one major loss though, with an injury to star safety Jordan Poyer. The All-Pro safety said it "felt like a pop" in his elbow. He will have an MRI on Monday to determine the exact injury and severity of it before Buffalo makes any designations on his future availability.

Generally, hearing a "pop" isn't a great sign, but this Bills defense will hope for the best on the MRI results. Losing a player of Poyer's status will be a huge hit to a unit that has dominated this season. The Bills defense ranks No. 1 in the NFL in. opponents points per game, surrendering just 14.0 on average.

Buffalo begins preparation for its Week 9 game against the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium. Buffalo is a 12.5-point road favorite, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's latest NFL odds.
