Marker Johnson, Moulds unleash frustration [9:06 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"It just seems like we have a lot of one-man routes," said Johnson, who has a burser sac problem in his right elbow. "All we get is cover-two and cover-five, and when you've got third and long, you've got one guy (to throw to). If he's not there ... It's frustrating."'

Marker Pendry's plans deserve ticket out of town [9:05 AM]

Marker Not dead just yet [6:40 AM]
Indianapolis Star reports: 'The defense, maddeningly inconsistent this season, set the tone early and remained firm throughout.

Marker Colts state case defensively [6:29 AM]

Marker Report card [6:26 AM]
Indianapolis Star reports: 'When special teams player Paul Shields started the second half by blocking a Buffalo punt, it changed the game's complexion.'

Marker At the dome [6:24 AM]

Marker Indianapolis 44, Buffalo 20 [5:59 AM]

Marker Mystified Mora at a loss as to why Colts are losing [1:32 PM]
Olean Times Herald reports: '"Our offense can play better," he emphasized. "I don't just blame the defense ... that's just the area that's struggled most."'

Marker Colts/Bills [1:29 PM] reports: 'Wide receiver Eric Moulds has had great games against the Colts the past two years. If he can continue to be a downfield threat, it will help pull the Colts linebackers off the line of scrimmage and assist the running game immensely.'

Marker Bills' defense gets chance to make amends [9:01 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"This is a time that reveals character in players," said defensive end Phil Hansen, who is expected to return to the lineup after missing almost all of the past five games with a knee injury.'

Marker It's up to Johnson to prove he can bounce back [8:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'It seems he hasn't learned Jim Kelly's old mantra. Even after three interceptions in one game, Kelly would chalk it up to "interceptions are part of football." Johnson needs to remember to shrug off adversity. Tonight would be a good time to start.'

Toronto Sun reports: '"It's just another game. It's awesome that my family and friends (in California) can watch, but I'm not treating it any different." Perhaps he should.'

Marker Prime-time elimination game [5:04 AM]
Indianapolis Star reports: 'Tonight, with their playoff hopes flickering in the cold night air and AFC East rival Buffalo in town, the Colts can speak to ABC's national audience. Their on-field oratory, though, may fall on deaf ears when it comes to earning a postseason berth.'
