ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) The Buffalo Bills will be without defensive starters Stephon Gilmore and Marcell Dareus when they close out their season in New England on Sunday.

Dareus injured his knee last week in a loss to Oakland. The Pro Bowl defensive tackle was downgraded to out Saturday after previously being listed as doubtful.

Cornerback Gilmore also was downgraded from doubtful to out because of a concussion.

The Bills (8-7) have been eliminated from playoff contention.
