Defense, Conditions Equal Tough Task for Rams [4:53 AM]
StLouisRams.com reports: '“Their whole defense is actually pretty good, not just the secondary,” Bulger said. “They have some good players up front, their linebackers, everybody knows about them, and the secondary (is good as well). (Their defense) was second or third last year in total defense, and this year they around fifth. That unit has been together, they know what they are doing, and they like to pressure. It will be a formidable challenge.”'

What to Look for vs. Rams [6:16 PM]
BuffaloBills.com reports: 'The St. Louis Rams defense is ranked 28th in the league and they have struggled against the run this season. In four games a starter, Willis McGahee has rushed for over 100 yards in three of those and expect him to have another big day on Sunday.

TV deal due warm reception [8:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The NFL's greed is good for the Bills and their fans. When the TV deals are maximized, those billions are shared equally by all NFL teams no matter market size. If it takes a disruption every two years for ABC, NBC or Fox to pay extra millions for a Monday schedule that still is bound to lose money, Bills fans should applaud.'

St. Louis Post Dispatch reports: '"In the games we've won, we've been pretty efficient - no turnovers, no sacks, ball control," he said. "So I know it's there, it's shown up, we've won because of it.

Black and Gold blackout [4:55 AM]
AP reports: 'The problem is a 30-year-old NFL TV policy that allows franchises to protect their local markets by requiring stations within a 75-mile radius to carry their away games. That means WSEE in Erie must show all Buffalo Bills away games, even though the Steelers and Cleveland Browns are more popular there.'
Tops Game Ball Winner: Brian Moorman [6:53 PM]
BuffaloBills.com reports: 'The winds at Ralph Wilson Stadium are difficult to kick in especially when you get the gusts like we've had a few games here. The main problem is that you just don't know when the wind is going to gust. If you had a steady wind that was blowing one way or another and not a cross wind then it wouldn't be as hard to deal with. It would knock the ball down but the ball wouldn't blow all over the place. The main thing is to try and go out there and find something that is going to work that day and stick with it.'
Rams Defense Plays Hard [6:52 PM]
BuffaloBills.com reports: 'New England didn't do anything special to slow down the running game last week. We played them very well the first time and they were looking to get back at us. With the type of defense they play, they don't penetrate the line they sit back and read the offense. Sometimes that makes it harder to find the holes this way. We had our moments running the ball but we weren't able to sustain anything and that was the biggest problem.'
Not Time for Losman [6:51 PM]
BuffaloBills.com reports: 'I don't think it's time for him to start. Bledsoe still gives the Bills the best chance to win and I'm sure Mike Mularkey will continue to start him until he thinks that's not the case anymore. The Bills are not out of it yet and to go to a rookie quarterback at this point in the season would be a mistake. The only scenario in which I can see Losman starting this year is if the Bills are out of the playoff race and Mularkey wants to play some younger guys to get ready for next year. Losman is the future of this franchise and he's eventually going to need some starts under his belt'
Five Keys to the Game - Buffalo [6:51 PM]
StLouisRams.com reports: 'Bills quarterback Drew Bledsoe has struggled mightily this season, at times throwing the ball directly to the defender.'
Reed, Vincent will miss Sunday's game [4:01 PM]

Vincent And Reed Will Not Play [3:49 PM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Mike Mularkey says Vincent is improving a little, but is not near being ready. Coy Wire practiced all three days and should be available for Sunday against the Rams.'
