And you realize you could lose that opportunity.”'

Buffalo is tied for third in the league in takeaways (22) and Cleveland has 15 takeaways in their last six games, good for most in the league over that span.

Marker Twitter battle may light a needed spark for Bills [1:58 AM]

Marker Donte Whitner's Twitter comments resurface ahead of Bills game [1:55 AM]

"He found any way he could to try and ruffle Buffalo's feathers, knowing he had to come up to us. That's just him doing what he does, but at the same time, I mean, it's annoying. It's just dumb for him to do, and talk about people like that, and talk about the city of Buffalo like that.

But they were great, and again I can't be thankful enough."'

Marker Fred Jackson, other Buffalo Bills say they have no respect for Browns 'idiot' Donte Whitner [1:52 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"I'm not going to get into that," Browns coach and former Bills defensive coordinator Mike Pettine said.

He's been a great leader. He's a fierce competitor. He's a big part of why we've had the success that he's had."'

Marker Browns' Donte Whitner not sorry about Twitter comments, thinks he's in Buffalo Bills' heads [1:51 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"(The Toronto Bills comment) wasn't excessive," Whitner added. "It wasn't a joke. I knew that it would get to them. I knew it would ruffle a feather. If they're over there talking about this, maybe we are in their heads. Maybe I'm in their heads. Maybe. We don't know, but the goal is to go 1-0, the goal is to get them talking about things other than football, and I guess that's what they're doing."'
