Marker Giants look ahead: Week 4 vs. Buffalo [1:52 AM]
Bergen Record reports: 'The personnel may be different, but the overall defensive results have been strikingly similar. Both teams are exceptional against the run, but have been equally as poor against the pass. The Giants have allowed 1,231 yards, including a staggering 1,007 through the air. Bills have allowed 1,202 yards — 980 through the air.'

Marker Bills already looking towards Eli, Giants [1:51 AM]
WGR-AM reports: '"They have (Victor) Cruz, they have (Reuben) Randle, and they have Odell (Beckham) so, they have some great skill guys that we’ll have to really look at film and come up with a great game plan to slow those guys down,” said safety Bacarri Rambo, who started for an injured Aaron Williams last week. "Those guys can really change a game at any point."'

Marker All-22 Review - Bills-Dolphins [1:50 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Bills play-by-play man John Murphy has dubbed Karlos Williams "Special K". The name should stick as long as Williams keeps at it. Between Williams and McCoy, the Bills have a pair of very good running backs. Don't be fooled by the struggles of LeSean McCoy to this point. When given space, he's proven to be a dynamic runner this year. He's also proven to be quite valuable in the passing game, both as a receiver and a blocker.'

Marker Harvin and Darby step up as injuries hit for Bills [1:49 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: '"I think the guy that kind of floated under the radar was Percy Harvin. Oh by the way the Bills signed Percy Harvin, okay," Ryan joked with reporters. "Percy Harvin is a big time player, a big time player. And I think we are seeing that."'

Marker Reasonable Optimism [1:48 AM]
Bills Daily reports: So Buffalo is through one of the toughest part of the schedule - the first three games. At the start of the season I would have very happily taken a 2-1 record at this point, and I’m positively giddy that the two wins have been dominant performances.

Marker Top 7 things to watch in this week's Bills-Giants matchup [1:47 AM] reports: 'Sunday’s game is the first of three games the Bills will play against the teams that beat them in the Super Bowl more than 20-years ago. The Bills play at Washington on December 20th (Super Bowl XXVI) and the Cowboys come to Orchard Park on December 27th (Super Bowl XXVII and XXVIII).'

Marker Offense has been biggest Bills surprise [11:37 AM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'The difference-maker is rookie fifth-round draft choice Karlos Williams who has provided a double dose of vindication for general manager Doug Whaley.'

Marker What some viewed as risky draft picks turning out well for the Bills [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'At the absolute height of domestic-abuse awareness in the NFL, the Buffalo Bills general manager drafted two players with baggage — cornerback Ronald Darby in the second round and running back Karlos Williams in the fifth.'

Marker Ryan really knows the real McCoy [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The Bills have a big investment in McCoy. If he’s not effective, he shouldn’t be out there. If he’s playing hurt to justify his contract, or because he’s afraid of being upstaged by a rookie, someone needs to talk sense into him. It’s in the best interest of the Bills to get McCoy healthy and ready for a playoff run. McCoy admitted after Sunday’s game that he “can’t get that acceleration, that burst.” Why play in a compromised state if the team has a gifted backup?'

Marker Bills’ injuries giving Ryan cause for concern [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“Obviously it’s too early in the week to tell” if they’ll be able to play in Week Four, “but we’ve got to go in thinking that the next guy is going to have to step up and do a good job for us,” Ryan said. “We’ve got to be ready to roll.”'

Marker Karlos Williams, Jerry Hughes came up big in Miami [1:56 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Karlos Williams. This kid is the real deal, a strong, powerful runner who also has a burst to break away, which we saw on his 41-yard touchdown burst in the fourth quarter. LeSean McCoy is not healthy, and if I'm the Bills this week, I sit him out against the Giants. Right now, Williams is the better player because he's healthy, and his running style seems perfectly suited to the way the Bills want to attack on the ground.'

Marker Blowout helps affirm Whaley's offseason moves [1:55 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Newcomers Charles Clay, Percy Harvin, Richie Incognito, Tyrod Taylor, Ron Darby, Karlos Williams and McCoy — players who came to Buffalo with either character, contract or experience concerns — each made a significant contribution. If you still think Taylor isn’t anything special, you probably think cell phones will never catch on.'

Marker Rex's recap: Coach talks injuries, praises Percy [1:54 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"I pulled out the tricks. But what I did was I told them the truth. As I mentioned, our bounce-back started in the fourth quarter of that New England game. Back when it's easy to throw out the white flag and you're down all those scores, we did the opposite. We made it a game against a team that was trying to stick it to you. We know it, everybody knows it. I'm the only guy who'll admit it. So we knew it. I can tell you this, we're a talented team. I'm finding out a lot about this team, but they showed me a lot about their heart and resiliency so I expected us to play well when we went to Miami."'

Marker Rex Ryan updates Sammy Watkins, LeSean McCoy injuries [1:53 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"It's not concerns," Ryan said of the injuries. "I think concern's not the right word. We talk to our players, we challenge our players all the time about, 'You've got to be ready to go.' Everybody on that roster has to be ready to go. You're one play away. That's the old saying, but it's true now. If you don't finish a game, most of the time, the following week those players aren't available. Whether they are or they're not, obviously it's too early in the week to tell, but we've got to go in thinking that the next guy is going to have to step up and do a good job for us."'

Marker Richie Incognito, Charles Clay haunt former team [1:52 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'For the second time in three games, Seantrel Henderson was among the Bills' worst-graded players on Pro Football Focus. He received a minus-4.0 grade even though he allowed just one hurry. The Bills' offensive line, as a whole, played better in Week 3, but there is still a bit of uncertainty on the right side of the line.'

Marker Buffalo Bills look like playoff team after commanding road win against Dolphins [1:51 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"This is how we should play for the rest of the year," Bradham said.'

Marker Bills restore confidence with road win [1:50 AM]
Canandaigua Daily Messenger reports: 'One area of concern might by LeSean McCoy. Right now he's Buffalo's second best back. Williams outgained his highly touted teammate 110 to 16 yards Sunday. Williams is running more like a first rounder that the fifth rounder he was. He runs tough north-south and showed breakaway speed on his 41 yard touchdown run. McCoy is probably still feeling the effects of a hamstring injury. A little quality depth doesn't hurt, if that's what you really want to consider Karlos.'

Marker Buffalo Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor gets the Giants' attention [1:49 AM]
Newark Star Ledger reports: '"He's real dynamic," Ayers said. "If he can't find someone open and he decides to take off and run, [Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie" target="_blank"> might have to come save us. He's super-fast and he's smart. He's not just running. He's not just going through one read, not seeing it and taking off and running like a lot of mobile quarterbacks do. He's going through his progressions."'

Marker QB Tyrod Taylor has Bills off to strong start [1:48 AM]
AP reports: 'Taylor's 136.7 passer rating on Sunday was the highest by a Bills quarterback since Drew Bledsoe posted a 144.2 rating in a Sept. 14, 2003, win over Jacksonville.'

Marker Watkins' status for game against Giants is uncertain [1:47 AM]
AP reports: 'Ryan said "it's a possibility" Watkins won't be available this week. Bills players had Monday off.'

Marker Bills concerned over injuries to Watkins, McCoy [1:46 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: '"Sammy Watkins going out with a calf, that's a big concern because obviously that's a mismatch if he's healthy and we can take advantage of it," said coach Rex Ryan. "It's the calf and obviously he couldn't press off it at the end to where he could go out and play."'

Marker Ryan: Bills bounce-back started with ''the truth'' [1:45 AM]
WGR-AM reports: '“That was against a team that was trying to stick it to you. We know it, everybody knows it. I’m the only guy who will admit it. So we knew it. And it was like, ‘ok, this is who we are,” he said.'

Marker Do the Bills have their quarterback? [1:44 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'It's early in the going here with Tyrod Taylor. But in my book you're forgiven for thinking that the Bills might finally be onto something at quarterback.'

Marker Rex on McCoy: ''Will consider doing anything that is in the best interest of our football [1:43 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'The good news is rookie Karlos Williams has stepped up while McCoy has struggled.'

Marker Harvin & Darby step up as injuries hit for Bills [1:42 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: '"I think the guy that kind of floated under the radar was Percy Harvin. Oh by the way the Bills signed Percy Harvin, okay," Ryan joked with reporters. "Percy Harvin is a big time player, a big time player. And I think we are seeing that."'

Marker 5 takeaways from Bills HC Rex Ryan (9/28) [1:41 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'For two very distinct reasons — the rise of rookie Karlos Williams, and the lack of effectiveness by LeSean McCoy — have led many to the conclusion that it may be time to give McCoy a week off to rest his hamstring injury. Against New England, McCoy looked as explosive as we’ve seen him since suffering a hamstring injury on August 18. However, that was apparently fool’s gold, because McCoy spent plenty of time on the sidelines due to his hamstring. On Monday, Rex Ryan didn’t rule out the notion of resting McCoy.'

Marker Tyrod Taylor's production has him among NFL leaders [1:40 AM] reports: '“You can just see in his preparation throughout the week,” said Clay. “Tyrod is one of those guys who works extremely hard in the weight room, in the meeting room and on the practice field. So there was never any doubt in my mind that he would come out and lead us. When you’ve got a guy like that who is so calm in the huddle it raises the spirits of everybody.”'

Marker Hard-driving Bills leave Dolphins in their wake [1:22 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“It was definitely big for us,” Taylor said of the Bills putting the Dolphins in an early hole in their stadium. “To overcome the challenges of the first road game, trying to take the crowd out of it. Mostly, though, just going out there and executing the game plan we worked so hard on all week.”'

Marker Bills’ McCoy may sit to rest hamstring [1:21 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Explosive, fresh and decisive, Williams is the Bills’ best running back right now and it’s not close.'
