Did the Buffalo Bills trade too much for the right to draft wide receiver Sammy Watkins?

If this ridiculous Vine is any indication (note: NFL executives should not base decisions on six-second videos), the answer is no:

An NFL team in Los Angeles?

The NFL-to-Los Angeles talk is picking up steam again, with Marcus Allen saying the Oakland Raiders should move there if the stadium situation is not settled and the Los Angeles Times reporting that the league is looking into possible stadium sites around Southern California. It's been 20 years since the Raiders and St. Louis Rams last played in the area. Will one of them, or another team, move to L.A. anytime soon?

Donald Trump wants to buy Bills

According to The Buffalo News, billionaire businessman and TV personality Donald Trump is interested in buying the Buffalo Bills and keeping them in western New York. Team ownership is nothing new to Trump, who previously owned the New Jersey Generals of the USFL before the league folded in 1987. Should Bills fans want Trump as an owner? Would Toronto be a better home for the team?

What's next for the Bills?

A somber mood has set in around Buffalo, N.Y. Longtime Bills owner Ralph Wilson died in late March at age 95. Iconic quarterback Jim Kelly is battling oral cancer. And questions about the franchise's future are getting louder and louder. Will the Bills stay in Western New York? The current lease seems to bind them until at least 2020, although there are some worries that the struggling team might try to move before then. What is your take on its future? How soon will it get back to the Super Bowl-contending days of the early 1990s?

The Pittsburgh Steelers might be below .500 on the season, but they looked the better team in their 30-20 win over the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday night. And they weren't the only losing squad to come up big on Sunday. Both the Minnesota Vikings and St. Louis Rams handed stunning losses to division leaders. Still, every sub-.500 team is eliminated -- or close to it -- from playoff contention this year, meaning it's not too early to look toward 2014.
