ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — The Buffalo Bills may be without two of their best defensive players for their season finale against the New England Patriots on Sunday.

Defensive tackle Marcell Dareus and cornerback Stephon Gilmore are listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against New England. Neither player has practiced this week after suffering injuries against the Oakland Raiders on Sunday.

Dareus left the game against Oakland with a knee injury. Dareus has been one of the most dominant defensive linemen in the league this year, picking up 48 tackles, 10 sacks and one forced fumble. He was named to the Pro Bowl on Tuesday.

Gilmore, Buffalo's top cornerback, suffered a concussion against Oakland. He has 46 tackles and three interceptions.
