Marker The continuing decline of Mario Williams [12:17 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'So, yes, when the Bills and Dolphins meet at 1 p.m. Sunday inside Hard Rock Stadium, both Ryan and Williams will have plenty of motivation to prove they were right − even if neither one of them would admit as much.'

Marker Kiko Alonso hopes he's found a home in Miami [12:16 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"He’s always been a guy that can run and hit," Ryan said. "Very instinctive player."'

Marker Bills look to avoid one of those haunting defeats [12:15 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Who can forget the loss in Oakland two years ago, just one week after a glorious home win over the Packers? How about last year's loss to the Jaguars in London? Or if you want to go back a dozen years in the playoff drought, you could point to the last-second loss to those Jags on opening day in 2004, after Nate "Playmaker" Clements didn't bat down the pass on fourth down.'

Marker Undermanned Bills face tough task against Dolphins [12:14 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Well, it’s not a must-win, but it sure would be a nice one to get. To be a playoff team, you have to win the games you’re supposed to win, and 2-4 Miami falls into that category for a Buffalo team that has won four straight. Beyond that, with a demanding three-game portion of their schedule on the horizon — home to New England, then at Seattle and at Cincinnati with a bye week mixed in — this is a game the Bills really need to put in the left-hand column, if for no other reason than to give themselves some wiggle room if they fall flat in that three-game gantlet.'

Marker Buffalo Bills vs. Miami Dolphins: Preview, predictions [12:13 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Bills 23, Dolphins 16.'

Marker Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy expected to be active versus Dolphins (report) [12:12 AM]

Marker Why Rex Ryan gave John Blake the 'Freak Maker' a chance to coach Bills defensive line [12:11 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"That was the guy that I wanted, but John is so loyal and everything else that he decided to stay in college," Ryan said this week. "For a couple years I tried to get him. I still harass him about that to this day, but no, it's funny. It's come full circle. He's here and that's the original guy that I wanted on my staff Shoot he's doing a great job."'

Marker Buffalo Bills' team flight delayed to Miami due to mechanical issue with airplane [12:10 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'As mentioned by the Bills' PR staff, Buffalo will arrive in Miami early on Saturday night. The delayed flight should have no bearing on tomorrow's matchup.'

Marker How hitting QB Tannehill pays off for Dolphins foes, and more [12:09 AM]
Toronto Sun reports: 'In each of his five seasons Tannehill has thrown more touchdown passes in the second half compared to the first. In total, 54 TDs and 30 interceptions after halftime, compared to 39 and 31 before.'

Marker Bills own the Dolphins now like the Dolphins owned the Bills in the 1970s [12:08 AM]
Miami Herald reports: 'Because the Bills-Dolphins drama of today has about as much in common with its 1970s predecessor as a Bugatti has with a Ford LTD.'

South Florida Sun Sentinel reports: '"Is there a little bit of a past there where they've kind of come in here and bullied us a little bit? Yes," Dolphins coach Adam Gase said before referencing last week's 30-15 victory over Pittsburgh.'

Marker LeSean McCoy likely to play on Sunday, will have 'limited role' [12:06 AM]
CBS Sports reports: 'The Bills would love to sit McCoy, let Mike Gillislee pound the ball 30 times and get out of Miami with a huge divisional win. But if the running game isn't going and McCoy feels healthy, he could see additional run. Or maybe if something happens to Gillislee, he ends up seeing additional carries.'

Marker Bills/Dolphins preview: notes and stats [12:05 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Aim for 5th win in row. Outscored opponents 124-53 in past 4.'

Marker Top 10 reasons why the Bills will Squish the Fish [12:03 AM] reports: 'Through six games, Bills sackmaster Lorenzo Alexander is leading the League in sacks with eight. With a sack this Sunday, Alexander would be the first player in the NFL to start the season on a seven-game sack streak since 2011. A force to be reckoned with on the field, Alexander will give the Dolphins a run for their money.'

Marker How to Watch Bills vs. Dolphins [12:02 AM] reports: 'Play-by-Play: Tom McCarthy. Color Analyst: Adam Archuleta.'

Marker What they're saying: Bills-Dolphins game predictions [12:01 AM] reports: 'National media make their predictions for this week's Bills-Dolphins matchup at Hard Rock Stadium...'.

Marker If McCoy and Woods can't go, Bills will call on former Dolphins to lead the way [1:59 AM]

Buffalo News reports: 'Asked if he felt he could play in a game, the running back said, "The biggest thing is just waiting how I feel Sunday. That's the most important. I'm doing a lot of preparation as if I'm playing, so I've just got to stay positive and keep with the treatments and being of the mind that I can go out there and play."'

Marker Now we find out about Taylor, Lynn [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Franchise quarterbacks rise above. They make everyone around them better, especially their receivers. Taylor hasn't been doing that. Granted, he's missing his best target, Sammy Watkins, and could be without Watkins' replacement in the No. 1 receiver spot, Robert Woods, Sunday.'

Marker Inside Rex and Michelle Ryan’s WNY home [1:54 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Ryan requested that the space be comfy and cozy, and was drawn to a classic blue and white color scheme. The first time Balistreri walked through their home, the Palladian window above the French doors that led into the sunroom caught his eye. It reminded him of sea coral, and using the unique window as inspiration, the design was built around the homeowner’s requests.'

Marker Bills officially list LeSean McCoy as questionable [1:53 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'During the media viewing portion of practice, which reveals very little, McCoy was doing some light individual work, testing the hamstring injury he suffered in practice Wednesday, but as his quote said, he didn’t do much, and may have done nothing at all once the media left.'

Marker Buffalo Bills first round pick Shaq Lawson activated to 53-man roster [1:52 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"I've seen enough," Ryan said. "Yeah, he looks pretty darn good out there. So he's flying around and he looks like the guy that we drafted. You know, the guy that we wanted him to be. So we'll see how he is once we get the live games going and all that, but there's a reason we took him in the first round and he's showing that on the practice field."'

Marker Buffalo Bills coach Ed Reed gets pranked by team; finds goats in his office [1:51 AM]

Marker LeSean McCoy injury: Buffalo Bills RB officially questionable for Week 7 against Miami [1:50 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"Well I don't want to do what we did last year," Lynn said. "I don't want him playing 85 percent, re-injuring the hamstring and then this thing lingers all year. So you just want to get him well, get him back on the field but at this point in the season, nobody is 100 percent."'
