Buffalo Bills News - October 24, 2016

Marker Mark Gaughan's Hot Read: Lack of elite Marcell Dareus caught up to Bills [12:49 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'That’s what the Bills needed against a Miami’s breakout runner, Jay Ajayi. The Bills needed the eight or nine disruptive plays in the backfield Dareus is supposed to be giving them.'

Marker Jerry Sullivan's Hot Read: File this one away in the archive of regret [12:48 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'When Tyrod Taylor hit Marquise Goodwin with a 67-yard bomb in the third quarter to give the Bills that 17-6 lead, I figured it was over. Turn out the lights, I tweeted at that point. No way Miami gets back in this one, the way the Bills' defense has been playing in the red zone.'

Marker Bucky Gleason's Hot Read: Dolphins show Bills how to ground and pound [12:47 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Jay Ajayi showed what made LeSean McCoy so effective during the Bills’ four-game winning streak. He shredded the Bills for 214 yards rushing, giving him 200-plus yards on the ground in consecutive weeks. Miami’s offensive line wore down Buffalo, much the way Buffalo’s line did for McCoy during their turnaround.'

Marker Jay Skurski's Hot Read: Let the second-guessing of the Bills begin [12:46 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Then there’s quarterback Tyrod Taylor. Yes, he was without his top two receivers in Sammy Watkins and Robert Woods. Yes, McCoy wasn’t right. Yes, the protection from his offensive line broke down far too often. But don’t franchise quarterbacks have to find a way? When the Bills got the ball back with 3:56 remaining in the fourth quarter trailing by four points, Taylor threw three straight incompletions. He just doesn't inspire much confidence in those situations.'

Marker Fourth quarter analysis: Bills implode as injuries mount [12:45 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Miami’s Jay Ajayi ran for 74 yards in the final quarter alone, giving him to 214 on the day – the second-most rushing yards the Bills had ever allowed (Ricky Williams had 228 yards in 2002). A late Bills touchdown made the 28-25 final score look closer than it was.'

Marker Third quarter analysis: Goodwin jets past Maxwell for long touchdown [12:44 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Running back Mike Gillislee made a great block on the play to give Tyrod Taylor time to throw, and he dropped a perfectly placed pass into Goodwin’s hands. To celebrate his touchdown, the former Olympian went to his favorite move: Reenacting a long jump.'

Marker Second quarter analysis: Blocked punt sets up Bills touchdown [12:43 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Lerentee McCray got a hand on Matt Darr’s punt early in the second quarter that set up the drive. The Bills would’ve been backed up to their own 17 after Darr’s first punt, but a holding penalty forced the Dolphins to replay fourth down.'

Marker First quarter analysis: Bills' red zone defense holds again [12:42 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Miami took 7:28 off the clock on its 15-play, 79-yard opening drive but couldn’t punch it into the end zone as the Bills’ top-rated red zone defense held again, forcing a 36-yard Andrew Franks field goal. Running back Jay Ajayi had gains of 9, 10, 11 and 12 yards on the first drive.'

Marker LeSean McCoy in, Robert Woods and Marcell Dareus out against Dolphins [12:41 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Wide receiver Robert Woods is out for the Bills because of a foot injury. He was listed as doubtful. Defensive tackle Marcell Dareus is out with a hamstring injury, the third game he's missed because of that following a four-game NFL suspension. He has yet to make his 2016 debut.'

Marker Bills wilt in colossal fashion, lose 28-25 to Dolphins [12:40 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Who knows what McCoy’s status will be moving forward, and if the Bills don’t have him available, or at least healthy, their three-game gauntlet that starts next week at home against New England, and continues with brutally tough road games at Seattle and Cincinnati becomes all the more daunting.'

Marker Bills were beaten on both sides up front [12:39 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'The Buffalo offensive line was manhandled by a Miami line that included Ndamukong Suh, Cameron Wake, and Bills castoff Mario Williams. The league’s No. 1 running team managed just 67 yards, and from the looks of things, it might not have mattered if LeSean McCoy was completely healthy because there was nowhere to run.'

Marker Dolphins 28, Bills 25: Quarter by quarter recap [12:38 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'It seemed like the game changed right there, but incredibly, the Goodwin TD had the opposite effect it should have on the Bills. That play seemed to wake the Dolphins from a game-long slumber, and they drove downfield to an Ajayi touchdown that officially signified that indeed, the momentum had irreversibly switched.'

Marker Report card [12:37 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'This was a massive disappointment on so many levels, but what really struck home with me was how this looked so familiar to what we’ve all witnessed for so long with the Bills. How many times have we been here with this franchise? They get you to a certain point where you start feeling good about the team, and its future, and then they punch you in the gut and lose to a second-class citizen team like Miami. It gets old, it really does. I know it was a road division game, but if you claim to be a playoff contender, you have to win this one, and they didn’t. What’s new?'

Marker Bills vs. Dolphins: LeSean McCoy active for Week 7 despite hamstring injury [12:36 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Rounding out the Bills' list of inactive players for Week 7 are quarterback Cardale Jones, offensive tackle Seantrel Henderson, center Patrick Lewis and running back Jonathan Williams and offensive tackle Michael Ola.'

Marker Buffalo Bills WR Robert Woods out for game versus Miami Dolphins, says Schefter [12:35 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that Robert Woods would miss today's Week 7 matchup with the Miami Dolphins.'

Marker Buffalo loses more than game in 28-25 loss to Dolphins [12:34 AM]
Batavia Daily News reports: 'In the backfield, news might be even worse for the Bills. LeSean McCoy (8 carries, 11 yards) tried to play through a hamstring injury he sustained on Wednesday during practice. Following half, the Bills announced McCoy was pulled from the game for re-aggravating the injury.'

Marker Buffalo Bills Week 7 Report Card [12:33 AM]
Auburn Citizen reports: 'If you don't count Mike Gillislee's 20-yard run and Tyrod Taylor's 10-yard touchdown run, the Bills had 20 carries for 37 yards. That's a pathetic effort. There are no excuses for it. Yes, LeSean McCoy is hurt. But Gillislee has shown he can break off big runs. Yet, the Bills coaching staff didn't seem too interested getting him involved in the rushing attack. Gillislee finished with five carries. (McCoy had eight.) '

Marker Jay Ajayi runs for 200-plus yards again as Dolphins bop Bills [12:32 AM]
Toronto Sun reports: 'Usually a Ryan-coached defence makes adjustments to at least diminish any offensive element causing problems, but Ajayi only ran stronger as the game progressed, until suffering a leg-muscle cramp with four minutes remaining. Did Ryan and his coaches change things up enough?'

Marker Landry: I wish I could take back hit that hospitalized Bills’ Williams [12:31 AM]
Miami Herald reports: 'Landry, speaking after the game, was visibly upset about hurting a fellow player. “If I could take that hit back, I would,” Landry said. “The guy has a family to feed and this is his livelihood. You never want to see that with anybody.”'

Marker Richie Incognito launches Andre Branch’s helmet late in Dolphins win [12:30 AM]
Miami Herald reports: '“Reggie [Bush] got in [the end zone], the ball came squirting loose so I went to jump on it and then the next thing you know I’m at the bottom of a pile and everyone was going at it, so I don’t know,” Incognito explained. “I was at the bottom.”'

Marker Ajayi rushes for 214 yards to help Miami beat Bills 28-25 [12:29 AM]
AP reports: 'The Dolphins (3-4) used an extra lineman much of the time to clear big holes for Ajayi, who tied the NFL record for consecutive 200-yard games held by O.J. Simpson, Earl Campbell and Ricky Williams.'

Marker Dirty hit? Block by Landry injures Bills' Williams [12:28 AM]
AP reports: '"I apologized," Landry said. "I just told him to get better. You never want to see that happen to anybody. ... If I could take that hit back, I would. It's a guy's livelihood."'

Marker Ajayi's epic performance pushes Dolphins past Bills [12:27 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: 'The Bills were led by quarterback Tyrod Taylor, who threw a touchdown pass and also ran for a score. But Bills running back LeSean McCoy re-injured his hamstring and was held to 11 yards on eight carries.'

Marker Bills left questioning toughness after loss [12:26 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: '"They out-toughed us," Bills starting right tackle Jordan Mills said. "I wouldn't say it was a surprise, but we didn't expect it."'

Marker Aaron Williams leaves with head/neck injury; LeSean McCoy re-injures hamstring [12:25 AM]
ESPN reports: 'Landry launched into Williams while blocking for Jay Ajayi on a 6-yard run in the second quarter. The Dolphins' top receiver was flagged for unnecessary roughness on the play, but the Bills declined that penalty and instead accepted a holding call against Miami on the same play.'

Marker Final: Bills stumble, lose to Dolphins 28-25 [12:24 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'That defense would get gashed again by the dolphins running attack and would take the lead on a terrific Damien Williams 12-yard touchdown run that gave the Dolphins their first lead since 3-0 early in the first quarter. The Bills would get yet another shot on offense, but would fail once again to put anything together and go three-and-out again.'

Marker Bills-Dolphins: Arrow Up/Arrow Down [12:23 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'The source of pride for Rex Ryan and his coaching staff took a direct hit. Miami manhandled them at all levels. Jay Ajayi ran for 214 yards. As a team, the Dolphins piled up 256 on the ground and 454 overall. They ran for 6.1 yards per carry. The numbers weren't deceiving. The play was as bad as the stats indicate.'

Marker Bills struggle in 28-25 loss to Miami [12:22 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'The Dolphins' Jay Ajayi ran for 214 yards, becoming the second play in NFL history to have back-to-back games with 200 yards rushing or more.'

Marker 7 observations from Bills - Dolphins (10/23/16) [12:21 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'The Bills not only activated him, but they decided to ride him all through the first half and early on in the third quarter. The Bills weren’t treating him as a man that just suffered a hamstring injury, they were operating — almost stubbornly at times — as if McCoy was his normal self and nothing had happened earlier in the week.'

Marker Mounting injuries, porous defense sack Bills win-streak [12:20 AM]
WROC-TV reports: 'So, now the complexion of the Bills season has changed a bit. This game was another measuring stick. Had they been able to get out of South Beach with a victory, they would have been sitting pretty. It very well may take 10 wins to secure a wildcard. Sunday’s loss drops them to 1-3 in conference games, which comes into play when invoking tiebreakers.'
