Marker McGahee Leads Bills In 27-17 Win Over Jets [8:40 PM]
WGR-AM reports: 'The Bills finally seem to be understanding what they have in Willis McGahee. A great running back, that can win you football games.'

Marker Bills Pass The Test [8:39 PM] reports: 'Mularkey can't hide that Holcomb is the number one QB anymore.'

Marker Bills Beat Jets 27-17 [8:38 PM] reports: In what was the most entertaining game of the year the Bills won their second straight game, against a division opponent at home, as they beat the Jets 27-17. Willis McGahee ran for a career high 143 yards and the defense made big plays at the right time to keep the Jets at bay as the Bills moved into a first place tie in the division.

Marker Jets Fall to the Bills, 27-17 [8:23 PM] reports: '"We ran the ball pretty good. Curtis had a really good day," head coach Herm Edwards said after the game. "But we got behind early and we played that way. We could never close the gap."'

Marker Buffalo 27, NY Jets 17 [7:25 PM]
The Sports Network reports: 'Bills quarterback Kelly Holcomb completed 18-of-26 passes for 172 yards with two touchdowns and a pair of interceptions. Wide receiver Eric Moulds caught seven passes for 63 yards and a TD for Buffalo (3-3).'

Marker Buffalo 27, NY Jets 17 [7:22 PM]
AP reports: 'The Buffalo Bills won't be able to keep Kelly Holcomb a secret much longer.'

Marker Front five reunited to face Jets' rush [9:08 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"You wish they could play more together because I don't think there's another position on this football team that so needs guys to play every down together to get some kind of continuity," Mularkey said. "No other position is like this one. Until we get that, it's going to feel like there's some inconsistency."'

Marker Two veteran QBs will try to answer age-old questions [9:08 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Bills 23, Jets 17.'

Marker Heavy hitters work the corners [9:08 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"It's all about attitude," Clements said. "A lot of corners just don't care for tackling. But we like hitting and we won't shy away from contact."'

Marker He's better than Paris in the fall [9:07 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'It would be dangerous for the Bills to think that way about him today. It was just a year ago when he averaged 4.6 yards a carry and produced 90 first downs, both career highs.'

Marker Bills vs. Jets: The scouting report [7:50 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'The Bills have scored 59 points in the first half of games and just nine in the second half.'

Marker Unlikely road for QB foes [6:27 AM]
Toronto Sun reports: 'When the AFC East rivals meet at a sold out Ralph Wilson Stadium, the Jets will be led by soon-to-be-42 Vinny Testaverde. The Bills, meanwhile, keep the quarterback controversy humming, with backup Kelly Holcomb getting the call for a second consecutive week. Both of today's starters were winners a week ago and even though they were decidedly so-so, each became huge stories in their respective markets.'

Marker Holcomb has been here before [5:00 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"Absolutely he can get the job done," said tight end Mark Campbell, who played with Holcomb in Cleveland. "That's what people outside of this building don't understand. He's more than an average guy. I can't say how this season is going to go, but I've played with that guy when he's put up 400 yards and played extremely well. He just needs a chance."'

Marker Running game can carry Bills or Jets [5:00 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Martin, the NFL's fourth all-time rusher with 13,651 yards, is undoubtedly the jet fuel in the Jets. In 74 career games in the AFC East, he has averaged nearly 90 yards rushing per game. When he gets more than 20 carries, the Jets are 43-16.'

Marker Bills Q&A: Rian Lindell [5:00 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'How much can a special teams coach actually help a kicker? Aren't you kind of your own coach? "Bobby (April) is great because he lets us do our own thing. Sometimes kickers are maybe forced to do things a certain way, and we have things that we need to get done for the team, but he'll say if it helps you to go sit in the cold tub, if it helps you to get another set of kicks, fine. Sometimes I think kickers are forced to kick more than they want, but Bobby lets us do whatever we think makes us successful."'

Newark Star Ledger reports: 'Jets 20, Bills 17.'

Marker Vilma is eager to pop his pal [9:39 AM]
Newark Star Ledger reports: 'Vilma said he heard McGahee was talking trash on the radio this week and just smiled. "We're cool, we're close, and it'll be a great matchup," Vilma said. "It's going to be fun ... I'm going to see him for 60 minutes (tomorrow), so I like that."'

Marker Bills fans can't tailgate before it's time [9:12 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"We don't want people showing up at 9 o'clock, thinking they're going to get in the parking lots," said Scott Berchtold, the Bills vice president for communications. "We're not going to allow them in."'

Marker Testaverde's comeback wasn't in playbook [8:54 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'An impossible situation, right? Not for Vinny. "I wouldn't say that I was unprepared for anything that they threw at me," he said. "A guy that's been on the couch basically for eight or nine months, I don't think you're going to try and change too much with the success that you've had. Fortunate for us, and fortunate for me, I was able to pick up the speed of the game pretty quick - it wasn't moving too fast - and I was able to make the right throws to the right guys."'

Marker Vilma knows Bills' McGahee is tough [7:53 AM]
Bergen Record reports: '"He's not a finesse runner, but he has a lot of speed," said Vilma, who worked out with McGahee and several other former Hurricanes during the off-season. "I don't know what you'd call that, really. You can't call him just a power back because he can break away from you. He has good vision. He can cut well. He's explosive. He's the whole package."'

Marker Bills look to get everyone involved [5:02 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"It was nice to get positive yards, take what they were giving us, not being too greedy and just picking away," said Campbell, who matched his season total with three catches for 15 yards after not catching any passes in the previous two games. "That's hard for an offense to do. We're always trying for big chunks but to have ball control, keep our defense off the field, it was nice to see. Sometimes experience (at quarterback) can do that for you."'

Marker Testaverde isnít through at almost 42 [5:01 AM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'Then, three Sundays ago, Vinny was on the coach in his Elmont home watching in stunned silence as first Pennington, then Fiedler went down with shoulder injuries in a span of seven plays against Jacksonville. It occurred to Testaverde, who lives only a few miles from the Jetsí training facility in Hempstead, that he might be contacted.'

Marker Jet 'D' talkin' about Willis [5:01 AM]
New York Daily News reports: '"He's back to being as good as he ever was," Vilma said.'
