Marker Ford Field provides unique atmosphere for Buffalo Bills' blowout win over New York Jets [1:43 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"I'll tell you what," Bills coach Doug Marrone said. "Our fans, they were phenomenal. When I first came out there, I didn't know what to expect. I know there was a radio station trying to garner up a bunch of Jet green out or something like that. We heard that and obviously were concerned about, 'Is it going to be a home field' and stuff like that, be ready for a silent count. As soon as I came out and looked to the right and saw all those blue jerseys, I was like, 'Holy cow, baby. Here we go.' That was a little bit of a relief for me in the beginning of the game."'

Marker Doug Marrone gives game ball to Erie County emergency response team after Buffalo Bills win [1:42 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"Afterwards, I gave the game ball obviously to the emergency response team in Erie County," Marrone said. "I think that's important. Pretty much too many people to thank for us being able to get it together."'

Marker Buffalo Bills respond to adversity, and 5 observations from dominant win over Jets [1:41 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'Maybe the extra time off helped the Bills figure out their red-zone issues. After failing to score a red-zone touchdown against the Chiefs or Dolphins the last two games, the Bills scored three touchdowns in three trips to the red zone on Monday and scored 38 points. Either the Bills figured something out or the Jets are just that bad. Buffalo now has 81 points in two games against the Jets this season and 156 points in their other nine games.'

Marker Fred Jackson active, Marquise Goodwin inactive [1:40 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'Goodwin and Williams have been jockeying for position at the bottom of the Bills' wide receiver depth chart throughout the season, and it appears Williams has passed Goodwin this week.'

Marker Russ Brandon says Buffalo Bills '100 percent ready' to host Cleveland Browns at Ralph Wilson Stadium [1:39 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'The Bills' plan is to travel back to Buffalo after their Monday night game and resume life as normal after a hectic week that included two missed practices and a relocated, postponed Week 12 game.'

Marker NFL, Buffalo Bills considered Yankee Stadium, Penn State before settling on Ford Field [1:38 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'Once it came down to a handful of NFL stadiums, Ford Field made the most sense because of its proximity to Buffalo, indoor field and the fact that the Lions were playing on the road in Week 12.'

Marker Buffalo Bills Report Card [1:37 AM]
Canandaigua Daily Messenger reports: 'The Bills didn't look like a team that couldn't practice because of a snow storm. Buffalo dominated in every area of the game, as coach Doug Marrone and his staff had the team well prepared. I liked that Marrone went for it on fourth-and-one even though it didn't work. The red-zone play calling was greatly improved too. Grade: A.'

Marker Jackson active for Bills against Jets [1:26 AM]

"I don't think we would have been as prepared if they didn't open up their arms to us," Marrone said of the Lions.'

Marker Bills put aside distractions in emotional rout of Jets [1:23 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: '"It was a busy week, wondering if we were going to play a game, if we even were going to practice for a game," he said. "Stuck in the house, it didn't seem likely. The people in Buffalo made it happen. They cleared the roads for some of the players to get out. They wanted us to play this game. It was really for them, the city of Buffalo."'

Marker Bills-Jets: What we learned [1:22 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: 'They need to rely on veteran quarterback Kyle Orton and their stable of young receivers to overcome an unspectacular running game. Orton completed 75 percent of his passes Monday to offset the relative ineffectiveness of the three-headed running back rotation. Subtracting Anthony Dixon's 30-yard touchdown against the worn-down Jets defense late in the fourth and the Bills only gained 86 yards on 28 carries. They came into the game averaging a modest 3.9 yards a carry.'

WGR-AM reports: 'The Bills were 54 percent on third down efficiency, outgained the Jets 336-218, they intercepted Michael Vick once, blocked a punt for a touchdown and sacked the two Jet quarterbacks seven times. Hmm, I think they were ready to play.'

Marker Observations: Bills 38 - Jets 3 [1:19 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Early in the game it looked like quarterback Kyle Orton was channeling his previous two performances into the team’s game in Detroit. He received some help along the way from his receivers with fantastic catches, but Orton was as efficient as the Bills could have asked for. Orton completed 24-of-32 attempts for 230 yards and two touchdowns, and more importantly, helped lead the Bills to convert on all three (!) of their red-zone opportunities — which has been an outright rarity to the 2014 campaign. Orton even showed to be lightning on his feet, rushing for a 10-yard gain and a first down when the left side was there for the taking. He’ll have a much stiffer test against a Cleveland Browns team that has one of the top young cornerbacks in the game, but it was a step in the right direction.'

Marker Immediate Reactions: Buffalo Bills 38, New York Jets 3 [1:18 AM] reports: 'You guys get the feeling that, for whatever emotional lifts are worth, just having Fred Jackson around is worth whatever they have to pay the guy? He’s like an aggressive-running Yoda for this team, the emotional leader they don’t necessarily have in their HC.'

Marker Bills Blowout Jets 38-3 [1:17 AM]
Bills Daily reports: 'The Bills took all the emotion of a very unusual week and took it all out on the New York Jets as the Bills won a "home" game in Detroit against the Jets 38-3. Kyle Orton completed 24 of 32 passes for 230 yards including touchdown passes to Robert Woods and Scott Chandler. Woods made four fantastic catches including a David Tyrell type catch and a great acrobatic catch for his touchdown. Boobie Dixon blocked his second punt of the season that was recovered by Manny Lawson for a touchdown. A Duke Williams interception setup a Fred Jackson touchdown run in the rout. Dixon added a 30 yard touchdown run and the defense had seven sacks including two each by Mario Williams and Jerry Hughes.'

Marker Bills Get Dominating Win Over Division Rival [1:16 AM]
Bills Daily reports: 'Kyle Orton was rock solid as he completed 75% of his passes on hitting 24 of 32 passes for 230 yards and two touchdowns. He struggled early with is accuracy but made the plays when he had to. Grade A: Orton holds on to the job for at least another week.'

Marker Bills plaster the Jets in Detroit 38-3 [1:15 AM] reports: 'Buffalo’s offense had been struggling in the red zone, but looked sharp going three-for-three inside the 20 against the Jets. Kyle Orton was responsible for two of the scores with touchdown passes to Robert Woods and Scott Chandler, who also both scored TDs in the first meeting with New York.''

Marker Bills dedicate win to WNY community [1:14 AM] reports: '“First of all I just want to say shout out to the Buffalo community,” said Boobie Dixon, who had a touchdown run and a blocked punt that led to another touchdown, which put the game away in the second half. “That was definitely for them. It’s been a struggle all week. I know they’re back home struggling and we’re going to go back home and fight with them. That was definitely for them, but we just rallied together. We know we needed this game. It was a must win and we got the ‘W’.”'

Marker 5 things to watch for during Bills - Jets [12:39 PM]
WGR-AM reports: 'The Bills are in a tough spot in this game, losing a valuable homefield advantage in a contest that they likely must need in order to have any hope for the playoffs. With a loss the Bills will drop to 2-6 in the conference, which will all but erase any hopes of them stealing a wildcard berth in a tiebreaker scenario. The Jets are playing loose, coming off a bye week and off a game in which they stunned a Pittsburgh team that was playing as well as any offense in the NFL. Kyle Orton must have a big game for the Bills to win, because they won’t be able to depend on a huge turnover advantage like they did last time around. This is the ultimate test in adversity for the Bills with what they’ve gone through this week and what this game means to the outcome of the 2014 season. It will likely be a close game, but this is not the same Jets team as the one the Bills saw in October. The fast track at Ford Field for Michael Vick and Percy Harvin could end up being the difference.'

Marker Buffalo with plenty to overcome in Detroit tonight [12:16 PM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'As Bills’ President and CEO, Russ Brandon, noted, “It was a full-on effort by everyone ... the organization, the NFL, the Lions. So many people have taken a lot of steps to make this happen and it’s gone seamlessly from the time we left Buffalo.” But he added, “No one feels sorry for us ... there’s nothing positive from having to move a game. When you take the great fans that we have, the experience at Ralph Wilson Stadium, and playing in the outdoor elements in November, that’s what you live for when you play Buffalo Bills football.'
