On this episode of Talking Buffalo, Patrick Moran is joined by longtime friend and recurring guest Tone Pucks for his weekly visit to discuss some leftover details from the Buffalo Bills big victory Sunday over Dallas to put them firmly back in the AFC playoff race, including James Cook starting to look more and more and like Buffalo Hall of Famer Thurman Thomas.

James Cook ran for 179 yards on 25 carries, caught two passes for 42 yards and found the end zone twice. Not only is Cook currently second in the NFL in rushing, he’s third in yards from scrimmage and his multidimensional skills are starting to draw comparisons to the former Bills legend Thomas. The guys talk about and how it’s unfortunate that it took Joe Brady becoming offensive coordinator to unlock the Bills usage and versatility at the running back position.

The guys also examine, at least to some extent if the Bills really need to win out to get into the postseason. Because the Bills technically don’t control their own destiny there’s no guarantee of the playoffs, even if they win their last three but what’s the chances Buffalo gets in if they drop one more game? Probably not good!

That plus a little Buffalo Sabres talk, Tone Pucks’ driving prowess and much more.
