Buffalo Bills News - October 3, 2015

Marker Scouting Report - Bills-Giants - Week 4 [1:33 AM] reports: 'Buffalo’s defense has fared pretty well thus far this season on third down, and that will need to continue Sunday against the Giants. New York is ranked sixth in the league in third down conversion percentage at a strong clip of 46.5 percent. With reliable weapons to move the sticks like Odell Beckham Jr., Shane Vereen and Rueben Randle, the Bills will need consistent coverage in the back and steady pressure up front to hurry or alter throws from Eli Manning.'

Marker With McCoy hurting, Dixon needs to produce [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Dixon has eight carries for 0 yards this season. You don’t need a slide rule to know that’s dreadful. I suspect he’s still bothered by the calf injury that sidelined him for three weeks of training camp. He was still fighting Fred Jackson and Bryce Brown for a roster spot. So Boobie might have come back early out of desperation, though he’s a valued special teams player.'

"We’re playing a great deal of snaps, but these guys are in great shape, they’re in great condition. Will we rotate guys in? Yeah, we will. But you’re obviously taking out a great player if you take out one of those two guys. So shoot, I like to see those guys out there. I feel better when those guys are on the field."'

He’s one of the most dangerous backs in the league. But then, to bring him in when McCoy’s out, they have a pretty good 1-2 punch there.”'

Marker Tyrod Taylor's talent obvious to Steve Spagnuolo [1:45 AM]
Newsday reports: '"I watched him for two years down in Baltimore give the Baltimore starting defense headaches every day," Spagnuolo said of the former Ravens backup who was mired behind Joe Flacco and ran the scout offense for that team.

Marker Can Rex Ryan get revenge on the Giants for crushing 2011 loss? [1:42 AM]
