Marker Pats anxious to face overdue Bills [9:27 PM] reports: '“It seems like it has been a long time since we have played,” Patriots head coach Bill Belichick said to open his Friday morning press conference. “I think everybody is anxious to get back out on the field and play again. We know how tough it is going to be in Buffalo, but in terms of playing a game, we have had a lot of preparation time, a lot of meeting time and [we have] run a lot of plays. Hopefully we are ready to go. I think everybody is feeling anxious about getting out there. We know we have a lot of regular weeks coming up, and we haven’t had any yet. Hopefully, we are into a little bit of a routine here. I think the players are looking forward to it.”'

Marker Two Bills Offensive Linemen Are Feeling Better [9:12 PM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Guards Chris Villarrial and Mike Pucillo practiced on Friday. Both have improved and if they don't have any setbacks, could be upgraded and ready for Sunday against New England.'

Marker Bills use book as motivation [9:11 PM]
Springfield Republican reports: 'When pressed on the accuracy of his comments in his conference call with the Buffalo media, Belichick sidestepped the issue just as he had when the New England media was asking questions about Holley's book. "I'm not getting ready for any book talk," he said. "I'm just talking about getting ready for a game. That book, some of it, was done a year or two ago, and I don't think it's very relevant for this week's game."'

Marker Tops Game Ball Winner: Brian Moorman [5:44 PM] reports: ' visitors selected punter Brian Moorman as the Tops Game Ball of the week winner for his performance against the Oakland Raiders on Sept. 19. Moorman completed a 24-yard pass on fourth down to cornerback Kevin Thomas, which was the first completion by a Bills non-QB since Chris Mohr's 44-yard pass to Daryl Porter on Nov. 19, 2000. Buffalo's two-time Pro Bowl alternate also tallied two punts inside the 20 yard line and registered a 63-yard boot, marking the 38th time in 58 career games he has connected on a punt over 50 yards.'

Marker Bills-Patriots Prediction [5:43 PM]
WOKR-TV reports: 'Bills 20 Patriots 17.'

Marker New England (2-0) at Buffalo (0-2) [1:32 PM]
The Sports Network reports: 'Patriots 20, Bills 17.'

Marker Buffalo wastes draft choice [1:18 PM]
Quincy Patriot Ledger reports: 'No one is talking about the supposed phenom in Buffalo these days. Donahoe's draft decision may be one of the worst choices in the last decade. But there is time for McGahee, 22, to prove Donahoe's decision rewarding. It's just been very slow.'

Marker Off to slow start [1:17 PM]
Nashua Telegraph reports: '“You never like to see a quarterback get a whole bunch (of sacks),” Brady said. “I know that the stuff I’ve seen on Buffalo, the stuff they’re always trying to work on is not take a sack . . . I’m sure he’s not trying to take any sacks, he’s trying to find the open guy and get it to him. But sacks are part of the game when you throw the ball a bunch, too.”'

Marker Bills need law of averages enforced [1:16 PM]
Niagara Falls Reporter reports: 'Bills, 19-17.'

Marker Guessing game awaits [8:52 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"You never know how they're going to come out," said Bills cornerback Troy Vincent, who faced the Patriots last season as a member of the Philadelphia Eagles. "They came out against us with a lot of two-tight end, one-wide receiver sets. When you're thinking they're going to come out and open the ball up with a no-huddle offense, they do something totally opposite."'

Marker Belichick gets some advice from Johnson [8:51 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"I did talk to Jimmy, and he was very hospitable in inviting me down to the (Florida) Keys," Belichick said. "We tried to catch some fish. It wasn't a big day out there for us. But Jimmy's got a lot of insight. He was very successful at many different levels of coaching and with many different organizations and teams."'

Marker Last-play loss to Jaguars is a first for the Bills [8:50 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Furthermore, trading Henry before this year would have had a major negative effect in the locker room because he is so respected as a tough, team player and McGahee is unproven. Next offseason is a different story, because McGahee presumably will have gotten through the season healthy and have a full year under his belt. Plus there will be an acceptance within the team that they both can't be on the same roster again.'

Marker Belichick's NFL success is anything but boring [5:07 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'One of the dullest interviews in all of sports, he prefers to let his team's deadly efficient play do the talking for him.'

Marker This is one book the Bills simply can't put down [5:04 AM]
Boston Globe reports: 'In an interview with the Buffalo media, Belichick -- asked whether his sentiment in the book that Bledsoe wasn't a good decision-maker under pressure were his true feelings -- responded, "I'm not getting into any book talk. We're getting ready for a game. That book . . . some of it was done a year to two years ago, and I don't think it's very relevant to this week's game."'

Marker Wilfork eager to see ex-mate McGahee [5:03 AM]
Boston Herald reports: '``We're like brothers,'' said Wilfork. ``We're both excited to play against each other. It's going to be fun. It's going to be interesting. Just to see him play is a blessing. And I'm proud of him. But we're on opposite ends this week. I'm going to get a chance to hit him, but nothing is going to affect our friendship.'''

Marker Bledsoe armed and dangerous [5:02 AM]
Woonsocket Call reports: 'Bledsoe’s also been sacked eight times -- partly because his offensive line is awful, and partly because he moves slower than a glacier in the pocket. The sack totals jump off the page and raise an interesting theory: Has the influx of quicker, more mobile quarterbacks like Michael Vick, Donovan McNabb and Steve McNair made the old-school, drop-back passers like Bledsoe obsolete?'

Marker Former player works out with Bills [5:01 AM]
Miami Herald reports: 'Former Florida Atlantic right tackle Ken Campos had a workout with the Buffalo Bills on Tuesday.'

Marker Recipe for Success [10:11 PM] reports: '“The NFL and professional football ain't something where you can just buy a bunch of all-stars and automatically they're going to be good,” Bills center Trey Teague explained. Obviously they've got quality players at a lot of positions, some super stars, but they definitely play well as a team. That's what makes them as good as they are."'

Marker The Bills And Patriots Will Be On TV [5:07 PM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Chris Villarrial did return to individual drills on Thursday. Mike Pucillo was still watching from the side with a sore back.'

Marker Buffalo hopes to continue its post-bye success [5:02 PM]
The Sports Network reports: '"This game is a great opportunity for us to gain back some confidence," wide receiver Eric Moulds said. "If we can beat the Super Bowl champions than we can prove to ourselves that we can play with anybody. This is a big game for us this week. It's a division opponent and we want to be able to make a statement in our division."'

Marker Bills vs. Patriots Sold Out [5:02 PM] reports: 'This week's game is the 10th straight sellout for the Bills.'

Marker Bills defense faces unpredictable Patriots offense [5:01 PM]
AP reports: '''You never know which identity they're going to come with,'' Bills safety Coy Wire said of New England, the team Buffalo hosts on Sunday. ''They have their no-back offense, two-back running game. They have multiple identities. It's just a matter of preparing for all of them.'''

Marker Belichick has plenty of reasons to smile [1:04 PM]
Tonawanda News reports: '“He never ceases to amaze us as far as motivational techniques are concerned,” Law said of Belichick, who took his team to see the movie “Antarctica” a few years back. “He hasn’t done anything yet this year, but I know he’ll do something special.”'

Marker Bills Games a Priority at Billy Bean's [1:03 PM] reports: '"We get a good mix of all fans, but the Bills section probably has the biggest fan base," he said. "Everybody knows we're the place to watch Bills games at."'

Marker Pats on a Roll, Head to Orchard Park [1:02 PM] reports: '"The only streak we're concerned with is our wins and losses," Bills center Trey Teague said. "We can't be worrying about anybody but ourselves. We need to play a tough game this week and get a win."'

Marker Pats' streak among most impressive [1:02 PM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'However, New England coach Bill Belichick offers a simpler version.
“If the Patriots win the game,” he said, “it’s because the players have gone out and made a few more plays than the team they’re playing against. All of the games we’ve won, that’s been the case."

Marker Bledsoe now in Brady's shadow [1:01 PM]
Brockton Enterprise reports: '"Some of the things that we're doing are preventing us from being continuously successful," Bledsoe continued. "We're trying to establish ourselves as a power-running football team. In order to do that, we have to convert our first downs. In order to convert our first downs, we can't be in third-and-10, third-and-12 all the time because your percentages go way down, particularly against the Patriots because that's where they're most effective."'

Marker Buffalo can't wing it on steals [1:00 PM]
Quincy Patriot Ledger reports: 'Turnovers. Put simply, the Patriots force 'em and the Bills don't.'
