Marker Huge Game, Huge Win [12:51 PM]
Bills Daily reports: How maddening is it to think that but for a continuous string of backup caliber quarterbacks the Bills might be turning the page? Time waits for no man, and if the Bills keep waiting for a better quarterback they won’t be able to hold together their current special defensive unit – that would be a tragedy.

Marker Bills can’t worry about postseason status [1:59 AM]

Marker Calculators burn up over Bills’ playoff scenarios [1:58 AM]

Marker For the Bills, a win that resonates [1:55 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'The Raiders are 2-12 and are one of the worst teams in the NFL, but the Bills better not sleep on these guys because Oakland will be at home and playing with nothing to lose. That's always a scary combination for a team in playoff contention. How utterly sickening would it be for Buffalo to negate its tremendous victory over Green Bay by laying an egg in Oakland and blowing up the season? Yeah, very.'

Marker Here's how the Bills make the playoffs [1:54 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'AFC North rivals Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, and Baltimore are all at nine wins, while AFC West rivals Kansas City and San Diego are at eight. If one of the teams from the North loses twice, and both the Chargers and Chiefs lose at least once, two wins by the Bills gets them in.'

Marker Bills beat Packers despite Kyle Orton's struggles, and 5 observations from stats and snap counts [1:52 AM]

Marker Bill Polian says Bills coach Doug Marrone should be coach of the year candidate [1:51 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"Doug Marrone, the Bills' head coach, should be very much in the running for coach of the year," Polian said.

Marker Bills set to activate running back C.J. Spiller [1:50 AM]
AP reports: '"He's a guy who's made plays in the past," Marrone said of the team's 2010 first-round draft pick. "Any time you can bring back someone who's a potential playmaker obviously helps."'

Marker Playoff push can't mask Bills' need for better QB play [1:47 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: '"We'll just keep on getting better," Orton said after completing 14 of 27 passes for 158 yards with one interception. "I think that's the only focus that you can have.

We'll work our butts off to get to that point."'

Marker Bills to activate Spiller this week [1:46 AM]

WGR-AM reports: 'Two years into the careers of cornerback Stephon Gilmore and left tackle Cordy Glenn, the top two picks of the Buffalo Bills in the 2012 NFL Draft, one seemed to be a bit more ahead of the other. An injury set Gilmore back which led to an average season, while Glenn had become a quality force for the Bills at left tackle.'

Marker C.J. Spiller to be activated off injured reserve [1:44 AM] reports: '“He’s cleared so I’m looking forward to seeing how he practices during the week,” said Marrone, who confirmed he’ll be placed back on the roster this week.'

Marker After 15 years, Buffalo Bills are two wins and a bit of luck removed from making NFL playoffs [10:31 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'And, so … yes. The Bills, who are 96-142 since that Nashville nightmare, could finish with double-digit victories for the first time in these past 15 years. And if they do, and if the gods are kind, that would mean they'd qualify for the playoffs all this time later.'

Marker Bills knock off Packers, earning a win of historic proportions [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Their defense is generating national discussion for its championship-level dominance and extraordinary depth. Doug Marrone’s presumably murky future could very well have been settled. With an 8-6 record, two games better than his first season in 2013, a legitimate case can be made that he assured himself of a third year as the team’s head coach.'

Marker Rodgers endures worst game of his career [1:58 AM]

Marker Stop mighty Rodgers? DBs had it covered [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“The secondary made a lot of plays,” said Graham, who blamed himself on the play when Jordy Nelson dropped a certain TD pass. “We’ve got a good group. Guys go out there, ball out and lay their head on the line. No matter who we go against, we compete.”'

Marker Marrone has earned his keep with Bills [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Nobody would have blamed Marrone for cracking a smile afterward, but he looked the same way Sunday as he did after a Week Three loss to San Diego. Still, he knew this was a big one. His players certainly did. They understood what he had been through this season with his uncertain future hanging over the franchise.'

Marker Rambo catches on fast with two interceptions [1:55 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“When Duke went down, he was ready to go,” Bills cornerback Stephon Gilmore said of Rambo. “I could see it in his eyes on the sideline. I could just see the confidence.”'
