Marker After 15 years, Buffalo Bills are two wins and a bit of luck removed from making NFL playoffs [10:31 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'And, so … yes. The Bills, who are 96-142 since that Nashville nightmare, could finish with double-digit victories for the first time in these past 15 years. And if they do, and if the gods are kind, that would mean they'd qualify for the playoffs all this time later.'

Marker Bills knock off Packers, earning a win of historic proportions [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Their defense is generating national discussion for its championship-level dominance and extraordinary depth. Doug Marrone’s presumably murky future could very well have been settled. With an 8-6 record, two games better than his first season in 2013, a legitimate case can be made that he assured himself of a third year as the team’s head coach.'

Marker Rodgers endures worst game of his career [1:58 AM]

Marker Stop mighty Rodgers? DBs had it covered [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“The secondary made a lot of plays,” said Graham, who blamed himself on the play when Jordy Nelson dropped a certain TD pass. “We’ve got a good group. Guys go out there, ball out and lay their head on the line. No matter who we go against, we compete.”'

Marker Marrone has earned his keep with Bills [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Nobody would have blamed Marrone for cracking a smile afterward, but he looked the same way Sunday as he did after a Week Three loss to San Diego. Still, he knew this was a big one. His players certainly did. They understood what he had been through this season with his uncertain future hanging over the franchise.'

Marker Rambo catches on fast with two interceptions [1:55 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“When Duke went down, he was ready to go,” Bills cornerback Stephon Gilmore said of Rambo. “I could see it in his eyes on the sideline. I could just see the confidence.”'

Marker ‘D’ makes Rodgers look ordinary [1:54 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'And although Rodgers wasn’t helped by his own surprising incompetence and multiple drops by his receivers, Buffalo’s defense can take a large chunk of credit for making the top candidate for league MVP look like he had no business on an NFL field.'

Marker Report Card [1:53 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Doug Marrone might have saved his job Sunday. The Bills have improved from last year by at least two wins and will avoid a losing record for the first time in 11 seasons. The fact that they beat an elite opponent significantly enhances the victory’s luster. That offense, though …'

Marker Bills could play in Raiders’ final home game in Oakland [1:52 AM]

Marker Three ... and out [1:48 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Rodgers is having the best season of any quarterback in the NFL, but he never looked comfortable, never seemed to be in sync with his receivers, and much of that had to do with the Bills’ play. This wasn’t luck. Well, outside of that dropped Jordy Nelson pass that would have been a touchdown. The Bills’ defense outplayed the best offense in the NFL, and they did it despite getting absolutely zero help from its own inept offense.'

Marker Report card [1:47 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'The offense was horrible, gaining just 253 yards and scoring no TDs, but when you beat one of the best teams in the league, all bets are off.

Marker Buffalo Bills shut down Aaron Rodgers, and 5 observations from win over Green Bay Packers [1:42 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'The Bills again had a tough time staying out of trouble. They were penalized 10 times a week after taking 11 penalties against the Broncos. This time, the penalties didn't come back to bite them, but it's still something Buffalo needs to get cleaned up.'

Marker Jerry Hughes says Buffalo Bills defense was 'average' in win over Aaron Rodgers, Packers [1:41 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"We had a lot of miscommunications out there. There was a couple of times where there were some guys open. We missed a lot of tackles, they had a lot of rushing yards. That's something that's very uncharacteristic of our front four. We haven't given up that many rushing yards, especially at home. We go, we break film and just try to learn from that and get better."'

We fighting for him, the whole (city) of Buffalo, and we just have to keep it going."'

Aaron Rodgers is a great quarterback, the best quarterback in the league right now. I knew as long as we had a great communication in the back end and held our guys for an extended period of time I feel like we had this game won.'

Marker Bills playoff scenarios: Buffalo still alive in AFC race after upset win over Green Bay [1:38 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'The Bills will need to win their next two games — at Oakland and at New England — and they also need three teams (Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, Baltimore, Kansas City and San Diego) to not finish with 10 wins. Buffalo doesn't hold tiebreakers with many other teams in the playoff picture, so for the next few weeks, Bills fans will have to do a lot of scoreboard watching.'

Marker Unlikely duo leads Bills’ win over Packers [1:37 AM]
Dunkirk Observer reports: '"Everybody in this locker room believes in ourselves, and we made plays in every different phase of the game," Bills' running back Fred Jackson said.

Marker Starks staying steady in Green Bay [1:36 AM]
