Bills Blow Out Seahawks 38-9 [4:37 AM]
BillsDaily.com reports: The Bills knew the secret to winning on the road, but they couldn't execute it. They knew they had to score early, stop making stupid penalties, and to avoid turnovers.

He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.7 seconds during the NFL Combine and possesses a 29-inch vertical jump, remarkable for a man his size.'

Seattle Post Intelligencer reports: 'What are the secrets to the Bills' success on defense this season?

BuffaloBills.com reports: 'Rookie Jason Peters made two big plays on kickoff coverage in the Rams game, first making a tackle for a very minimal gain and then recovering a fumble in the third quarter.

We view him as a big and powerful guy that is only going to get better. Even in the infancy as a player, he's doing pretty well.'
