Marker NFL Plays of the Week (Video Highlights) [10:03 AM] reports: Watch the plays of the week for Week 7.

Marker Bills make a leap of faith [9:14 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Maybe all you true believers who have predicted since the day of the Drew Bledsoe trade that the Bills could make the playoffs weren't so crazy after all.'

Marker Clements' picking and grinning is sweet music to Bills [9:13 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'However, Chris Watson had perhaps his best game of the year and Jason Bostic held his own in the slot when the Bills went to their nickel (five defensive backs) package. "They did an excellent job stepping up," Clements said.'

Marker With defense awake, Bills can open some eyes [9:12 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'It's hard to say what was more remarkable - going four straight games without a takeaway, or getting six in one game against Miami.'

Marker Decisive victory by Jennings over Taylor [9:12 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Score this battle for Jennings, who held Taylor to only three tackles (one solo) and no sacks.'

Marker Monday Billboard [9:11 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Who would have thought that after going four weeks without a single takeaway, the Bills would go plus-six at Miami? The answer is, "Nobody."'

Marker Bills bring the heat [5:51 AM]
D and C reports: 'As they steam toward the midway point of the season, the Bills are now 4-3 and in second place in the AFC East, one game behind Miami.'

Marker Battered Fish get no pity from Bills [5:50 AM]
D and C reports: '“Hey, this is the NFL, we don’t care how we get the victories,” said an animated Fletcher, his words acting as an umbrella to those trying to rain on Buffalo’s big win. “Nobody’s going to feel sorry for us if we go into a game with injuries. Someone goes out, the next guy’s supposed to get the job done. You’re one play away in this league from being the guy.”'

Marker No disclaimers, this win was big [5:49 AM]
D and C reports: 'That 3-13 nightmare of a year ago seems so long ago, doesn’t it?'

Marker Buffalo Bills Report Card [5:48 AM]
D and C reports: 'COACHING: Gregg Williams and staff had the Bills ready, taking advantage of a banged-up Dolphins offense to end a four-game losing streak to the Dolphins. B+'

Marker Lucas is a dead Fish [5:47 AM]
Toronto Sun reports: 'Lucas also caused one fumble on a poor handoff to running back Ricky Williams as he single-handedly let the Bills waltz back into the AFC East race. First the fans booed Lucas, then they left. For the final three minutes, the hundreds that remained lustily serenaded the Bills.'

Marker Three picks make Clements a winner [5:46 AM]
Toronto Sun reports: '"I can probably clean this up in about one second," Wannstedt said. "Six turnovers against a team that is scoring 35 points a game ... it's going to be tough winning."'

Marker 'We threw the game away' [5:45 AM]
Miami Herald reports: '...even after committing four turnovers, and forcing none, they still had five possessions to cut a 10-point lead in the final 19 minutes. But they bungled that, too...'.

Marker One pass sours defensive effort [5:44 AM]
Miami Herald reports: '''[Bledsoe] wasn't able to do that much all day, but he saw the one that we had one guy deep,'' Marion said. ``He's from the old school. He sees that defense with one guy in the middle of the field and he's throwing it to the sideline. . . . That's what you see from guys like that, like Marino."'

Marker Picking on the Dolphins [5:43 AM]
Miami Herald reports: 'A theme has emerged from the Dolphins' two losses this season: An opposing player catches three interceptions.'

Marker Dolphins receivers in flux [5:42 AM]
Miami Herald reports: 'Without Chambers and Gadsden, the passing attack stalled significantly. Only five of quarterback Ray Lucas' 13 completions went to wide receivers, including one pass to tight end Desmond Clark, who lined up numerous times at wide receiver.'

Marker A dark debut, but quarterback's will to win will shine through [5:41 AM]
Miami Herald reports: 'He was ravaged by guilt and shame and disgust and vulnerability after this 23-10 loss to the Buffalo Bills, but he will bounce back from this, as will this very good Dolphins team.'

Marker By not running more, Lucas off on wrong foot [5:40 AM]
Miami Herald reports: '''Our defense was brilliant except for that 70-yard pass [from Drew Bledsoe to Eric Moulds],'' Lucas said. ``I gave 'em almost everything else. I let everybody down.'''

Marker He's a risk, but Carter could fill offensive vacuum [5:39 AM]
Miami Herald reports: 'Saint or shrew? Touchdowns or tirades? You make the call.'

Marker On sidelines, Fiedler knows backup's plight [5:38 AM]
Miami Herald reports: '''He's got great character and he's going to stay up,'' Fiedler said. ``He'll come back in two weeks and give the best performance of his life.'''

Marker Forgotten Henry nets 132 yards [5:37 AM]
Miami Herald reports: '''We knew if we spread the ball out and went into some one-back formations, we could have some big runs on the outside,'' Henry said.'

Marker Five keys to Dolphins-Bills [5:36 AM]
Miami Herald reports: 'Lucas didn't help himself by often staring down his target and being indecisive at times.'

Marker Dolphins-Bills report card [5:35 AM]
Miami Herald reports: 'Quarterbacks: Ray Lucas lived every QB's nightmare, suffering four interceptions and being blamed for two lost fumbles. He was inaccurate, made bad decisions and single-handedly raised appreciation for injured Jay Fiedler. Lucas' early TD pass and late 17-yard scramble were overwhelmed by his costly errors. F'

Marker Offensive mistakes lead to 20 points for Buffalo [5:34 AM]
Fort Lauderdale Sun Sentinel reports: '“When Bledsoe sees one body in the middle of the field, he’s going to throw to the outside,” said Marion, who arrived too late to stop Moulds from scoring. “He’s old school. Anytime he sees [man] coverage, he’s going to try and make that play.”'

Marker Big play humbles Madison [5:33 AM]
Fort Lauderdale Sun Sentinel reports: 'It was, perhaps, among the worst games of his career.'

Marker Bills’ Henry foils Dolphins’ plan to stop the pass [5:32 AM]
Fort Lauderdale Sun Sentinel reports: '"They caught us in the wrong defense a couple of times," defensive tackle Jermaine Haley said. "We were looking a little more for the pass, and they hit us with the run. You have to give them credit. They were determined to establish the run, and they did."'

Marker One guy. Six turnovers. Many questions. [5:31 AM]
Fort Lauderdale Sun Sentinel reports: 'After one start, here's what we know about Lucas: He's a much better quote than injured starter Jay Fiedler. And he's a much, much worse quarterback.'

Marker Even bye may not be long enough [5:30 AM]
Fort Lauderdale Sun Sentinel reports: 'Wannstedt must resolve the Oronde Gadsden situation, make sure Cris Carter doesn't become a distraction, and make sure Lucas bounces back from Sunday's disappointing performance in the Dolphins 23-10 loss to the Bills.'

Marker Carter's likely return is welcomed by most [5:29 AM]
Fort Lauderdale Sun Sentinel reports: 'In a game like this 23-10 home loss to Buffalo, when Madison said the Dolphins may have needed "more vocal people to go out and light a fire under guys' butts," Carter probably would have done that.'
