The Sports Xchange reports: '"Sometimes you feel that momentum shift, and it just snowballed on us," Bills coach Rex Ryan said. "Sometimes I think we lose confidence. You can't ever have that happen to you. To their credit now, (Oakland) has done this a bunch. This is a heck of an offense."'

Marker Bills collapse; blown out by Raiders, 38-24 [1:25 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'The Bills will return to the friendly confines of New Era Field to take on the Pittsburgh Steelers next Sunday. The Bills will need to win out and get some help from others around the NFL in order to have any legitimate chance at making the playoffs.'

Marker Bills-Raiders: Arrow Up/Arrow Down [1:24 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Going into the season, conventional wisdom was, “get to ten wins and see what happens.” That’s often good enough to get into the postseason. Well, here we sit, four games left, and now needing them all to get to that double-digit win total this organization hasn’t seen since 1999. And with the way the AFC looks right now, there’s a solid possibility ten wins won’t even be enough to get the job done and put them in.'

Marker Raiders score 29 unanswered to beat Bills 38-24 [1:23 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'Buffalo's current 16-year postseason drought is the longest in the NFL.'

Marker Joe B: 7 observations from Bills - Raiders (12/4/16) [1:22 AM]

Marker Bills collapse against explosive Raiders [1:21 AM]

Marker Raiders Steamroll Bills In The 2nd Half [1:20 AM]
Bills Daily reports: 'The Bills came ready to play and shockingly opened up a big lead in the 2nd half. Unfortunately there was too much time left on the clock and the final 25 minutes of the game resembled so many late season West Coast games as the Bills wilted down the stretch. The Bills haven't won a big road game against a good team in 12 years. Just when it looked like it might happen on this day the Bills remembered who they were and got rolled over for a very depressing loss that likely clinches the playoff drought going to an unbelievable 17 years.'

Marker Week 13: Total Collapse In Another Road Loss [1:19 AM]
Bills Daily reports: 'Grade D: It's is becoming crystal clear he's not a franchise quarterback. The search continues.'

Marker Bills falter late in loss to Raiders [1:18 AM] reports: 'Buffalo’s game plan was working well. They were running the ball effectively and held the Raiders high-powered passing attack in check to successfully build a 15-point lead midway through the third quarter (24-9). Then the Oakland attack woke up scoring 29 unanswered points in a span of just over 15 minutes of game clock to take a lead they would never relinquish in a 38-24 come from behind victory.'

Marker Big effort by McCoy and Bills rushing attack lost in defeat [1:17 AM] reports: 'The NFL’s number one rushing attack couldn’t be stopped until the Bills fell behind in the fourth quarter. McCoy had 17 carries for 130 yards. Gillislee added 49 yards and two touchdowns on eight carries.'

Marker What they're saying: Bills players ponder missed opportunities in loss to Oakland [1:16 AM] reports: '“It (stinks), man, it really does. There are some plays I missed today that I wish I had back. It was a weird game because I felt like we did everything we could do early in the game. In the second half they came out firing. We were in zebra personnel, which is a passing [formation" target="_blank"> and they had their big guys in trying to stop us from running the ball. We had some success and then we just collapsed. We couldn’t move the ball, we couldn’t do anything right. We stalled on a few drives and had the turnover. It was a super snowball effect. As a team, we can’t win like that – especially on offense.”'

Marker Charles Clay among the Bills inactives for today's game [1:15 AM] reports: 'On Saturday Buffalo called TE Gerald Christian up from the practice squad as insurance in the event that Clay was unavailable. Christian, who has been on the active roster once before this season, has a greater working knowledge of the offense than Logan Thomas, who just signed this week. Thomas is also inactive today.'

Marker Everything you need to know for Bills-Raiders, plus five things to watch for [9:55 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'How does Kevon Seymour hold up on the outside? The rookie cornerback from Southern California is in line to make his second career start, but the first came in the slot. This time, Seymour will be on the outside, in place of the injured Ronald Darby. In Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree, the Raiders have a pair of solid outside receivers. Bills coach Rex Ryan asks a lot of his cornerbacks in terms of being able to play man coverage, so it will be interesting to see how Seymour holds up in that role.'

Marker Buffalo facing tough Raiders road test [9:53 AM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'But here’s the sobering reality. The Bills could win their last seven, finish 11-5, and still miss the playoffs.'

Marker Jerry Sullivan: Raiders' Carr could be on an MVP ride [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"The kid's a really talented player," Gannon said. "He throws the ball well. He's got better movement than you think, and he's got great accuracy, great touch on the ball. He can change speeds and there's really not a weakness when you see him throw the football.'

Marker Getting to know: Bills cornerback Corey White [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"All my life I’ve been in the south. High school in Georgia, college I was in Alabama. Then I started off in New Orleans. Moved to Dallas and Arizona, so this is my first time in a real winter – and it’s only fall."'

Marker Inside the NFL: The Raiders are doing it right [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Reggie McKenzie, who became the Raiders’ general manager in 2012, can take a bow for what he and the rest of his player-personnel staff have done, especially in the last three seasons. Their work is being admired by many current and former NFL executives.'

Marker Roth: McKenzie, Carr and Mack story behind Raiders rise [1:55 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'While Bills fans have been put through the longest active playoff drought in North American professional sports — 16 seasons — Raiders Nation has endured 13 seasons of non-playoff football.'

Marker In the hunt: Results the Bills need around the NFL [1:51 AM]
Batavia Daily News reports: ' The Ravens sit atop the AFC North and hold the head-to-head edge over the Bills. You want the Ravens to win here not only so the Dolphins take a loss as the second Wild Card team, but so the Ravens stay above Wild Card territory.'

Marker Enemy territory: Bills - Raiders Q&A, how surprising is this Raiders team? [1:50 AM]
Batavia Daily News reports: 'Oakland is on a roll right now and Buffalo will be playing like it has a lot to lose given where it stands in the AFC playoff race. LeSean McCoy and Tyrod Taylor may be the most dynamic backfield in the NFL, but unless the Bills can bring a consistent pass rush to slow down Derek Carr and the offense, I don’t see the Raiders faltering in Week 13.'

Marker Nick's Bills - Raiders six-pack of matchup facts [1:49 AM]
Batavia Daily News reports: 'A milestone day could be in store for running back LeSean McCoy. A single TD would be the 70th of his career, he would become the fourth-active RB to reach that milestone (Adrian Peterson – 102, Frank Gore – 90, Matt Forte – 72.) That score would put McCoy at 10 this season, the second time in his career he’d hit the double-digit mark for a season (2011). McCoy has all but locked up one milestone though, as six more yards on the ground gives him 1,000 on the season. The seventh-straight season McCoy topped that total.'

Marker Joe McKnight missed phone calls that could have altered fate [1:48 AM]
Newsday reports: 'Lynn tried to reach McKnight in May but said his cellphone was either turned off or not working. Lynn then asked others to reach out on his behalf, but they, too, were unsuccessful.'
