1. Bills: The Bills squandered a 24-9, third-quarter lead over Oakland, all but ending their shot at a playoff berth. 2. Rams: Coach Jeff Fisher signed a contract extension that was reportedly agreed upon before the season. So the Rams apparently kept it secret as they went 4-8. 3. Panthers: Cam Newton was benched for the first series of last Sunday’s game because of a dress-code violation. He proceeded to complete only 14-of-32 passes for 182 yards and a touchdown, and the Panthers got blown out 40-7 in Seattle.
