Ten Plays That Shaped The Game [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The Jets used a bunch of two- and even three-tight end sets in the first half with the aim in part of slowing down the Bills’ pass rush. Mario Williams destroyed the plan late in the second quarter when the Jets lined up three tight ends to the right side of the formation. He burst to the inside of rookie Jace Amaro and pushed both him and tight end Jeff Cumberland backward until he took down Michael Vick for a 10-yard sack.'

Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"I'll tell you what," Bills coach Doug Marrone said. "Our fans, they were phenomenal. When I first came out there, I didn't know what to expect. I know there was a radio station trying to garner up a bunch of Jet green out or something like that. We heard that and obviously were concerned about, 'Is it going to be a home field' and stuff like that, be ready for a silent count. As soon as I came out and looked to the right and saw all those blue jerseys, I was like, 'Holy cow, baby. Here we go.' That was a little bit of a relief for me in the beginning of the game."'

Either the Bills figured something out or the Jets are just that bad. Buffalo now has 81 points in two games against the Jets this season and 156 points in their other nine games.'

Buffalo Bills Report Card [1:37 AM]
Canandaigua Daily Messenger reports: 'The Bills didn't look like a team that couldn't practice because of a snow storm. Buffalo dominated in every area of the game, as coach Doug Marrone and his staff had the team well prepared. I liked that Marrone went for it on fourth-and-one even though it didn't work. The red-zone play calling was greatly improved too. Grade: A.'
