We missed a lot of tackles, they had a lot of rushing yards. That's something that's very uncharacteristic of our front four. We haven't given up that many rushing yards, especially at home. We go, we break film and just try to learn from that and get better."'

We fighting for him, the whole (city) of Buffalo, and we just have to keep it going."'

I knew as long as we had a great communication in the back end and held our guys for an extended period of time I feel like we had this game won.'

Marker Buffalo 21, Green Bay 13 [1:30 AM]

The Sports Xchange reports: 'Bills safety Bacarri Rambo made his second interception of the game � and second of his career -- after the Packers had driven from their own 2-yard-line to the Buffalo 34. Rambo's 28-yard return gave the Bills a drive start near midfield and Dan Carpenter converted a 43-yard field goal to put the Bills in front 19-10 with 9:23 left in the fourth quarter.'

Marker Bills-Packers: What we learned [1:28 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: 'Despite another non-descript performance, quarterback Kyle Orton is likely to finish out the season as the Bills' starter. Coach Doug Marrone maintains that Orton gives his team the best chance to win. Had Buffalo lost Sunday to fall out of the playoff picture, the team may have elected to give second-year quarterback EJ Manuel some playing time down the stretch. However, now that the Bills have a chance to end their 14-year playoff drought, they will stick with Orton. '

Marker Bills Win 21-13 [1:27 AM]

Marker Bills defense is the best! [1:24 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'The Bills are 4-3 on the road if you count the game against the Jets in Detroit as a road game. They finish up in Oakland and New England. The fun part is at least game 15 is relevant. To me it’s relevant thanks to the best defense in the National Football League.'

Marker Observations: Bills 21 - Packers 13 [1:23 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'With those two factors in mind, regardless of how poorly the offense has played, Marrone has a solid enough case built for himself to return for a third season. There will need to be a vast amount of changes to the offensive side of the ball, but working with what he has had to in 2014, Marrone likely won’t have to go searching for an assistant coaching job elsewhere come January.'

Special teams added a 75-yard punt return for a score and a quartet of field goals from Dan Carpenter to lift the Bills to a surprising 21-13 win over Green Bay.'

Marker Bills D stymies two of NFL's best QBs [1:17 AM] reports: '“We talked about it all week and I think we talked about it Monday or Tuesday—we’re not going to get caught up in the hoopla of who we’re playing, or the gauntlet of quarterbacks. We’ve played great quarterbacks. We’ve played well against great quarterbacks,” said Williams, knowing their divisional rematch with Tom Brady looms in Week 17. “The only expectation we had was to play well and win that football game. We were able to do that.”'
