Marker Bledsoe Delivers For Patriots [5:21 AM]
Hartford Courant reports: 'They have the luxury of playing three of their final four games at Gillette Stadium, all against AFC East rivals. If the Patriots win three of four (they also have a Monday night game at Tennessee Dec. 16) they'll finish 10-6, which should be good enough for the postseason. A wild card is tougher this year with realignment.'

Marker Fourth-down gamble doesn't pay [5:20 AM]
Miami Herald reports: 'With Buffalo out of timeouts, Wannstedt reasoned it was safe to pass. ''If we throw an incomplete pass, they have 48 seconds on the clock and no timeouts,'' he said. ``They weren't going to move the ball down the field and score on us.'''

Marker Bills' Bledsoe torches coverage [5:19 AM]
Fort Lauderdale Sun Sentinel reports: 'Coach Dave Wannstedt said Monday the Dolphins used their usual defensive formations against the Bills. "We always have somebody deep to help," Wannstedt said. "We had that situation [Sunday] with every one of the touchdowns. We just didn't make the plays."'

Marker Necessary gamble? [5:18 AM]
Palm Beach Post reports: 'Wannstedt finally said Lucas made the biggest error by holding on to the ball too long. The play had been called for a quick-hitch pattern by both outside receivers, but Lucas had been instructed to throw the ball away if there was nothing there.'

Marker Dolphins' Madison struggling to find difference in his game [5:17 AM]
Florida Today reports: 'In Sunday's loss to the Bills, Bledsoe and Moulds beat Madison for two more big plays. One was a 57-yard touchdown pass, the other a 47-yard completion that put Buffalo at the Miami 3-yard line and led to another score.'

Marker Wannstedt: Fiedler will start against Bear [9:45 PM]
ESPN reports: Lucas was 6-for-11 for 40 yards and one touchdown against the Bills, and Fiedler went 5-for-9 for 15 yards and one interception. The Dolphins are 2-4 in games Lucas has started after beginning the season 5-1 under Fiedler, who broke his right thumb against Denver on Oct. 13.

Marker Prime Time Players for Week 13 [9:40 PM]
ESPN reports: Bledsoe was chiefly responsible for the Bills staying in the AFC East title hunt. Bledsoe connected with his favorite targets -- Eric Moulds and Peerless Price -- for a trio of touchdowns in Buffalo's victory over Miami. He was 15-for-27 passing for 306 yards and also had a scoring run.

Marker Peter King: Some Sundays are made for a dish and a quick clicker [9:35 PM]
CNN/SI reports: "Travis Henry was no Ricky in the snow, but he was damn good, and against a much tougher run defense. Miami's run D was rated third in the league entering the game in Buffalo, and what Henry did was nearly Tomlinsonesque: 35 carries, 151 yards. Funny. All anyone was talking about after the game was Williams' big day and Drew Bledsoe passing up a storm in the storm. Hellooooo! Ball possession was vital in this game, and Henry, by being such a big horse, allowed the Bills to keep it for almost 33 minutes. "

Marker Wannstedt not down on defense [8:02 PM]
Dolphin Digest reports: 'The defense was sloppy in a lot of different areas, but probably nothing was as frustrating as watching the Dolphins drop interception after interception. The culprits included Zach Thomas, Jamar Fletcher, Patrick Surtain and Sam Madison, who not only botched the pick but wound up tipping the ball to Buffalo wide receiver Eric Moulds, who strolled into the end zone for a 57-yard touchdown that made it 31-21 late in the third quarter.'

Marker Henry breaks 1,000; Bills break offensive slump [7:35 PM]
AP reports: '``Any good offense has a strength to it, and the focal point of our offense has been the throwing game,'' Bills offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride said. ``But when people begin to play that, then you have to be able to successfully go after them in another way. And our other dimension is Travis. He's the one who gives the physicality to our offense.'''

Marker Bills, Dolphins draw record TV audience [4:15 PM]
Business First of Buffalo reports: 'The Bills game against the Miami Dolphins at Ralph Wilson Stadium Dec. 1 posted a rating of 44.8 and a share of 68 in the Buffalo market. Those numbers tied the audience levels for Super Bowl XXXVI as the most-watched TV program in the Buffalo market, the nation's 44th largest, since meters were first used in 2000.'

Marker Bills flip back the calendar to keep season's final quarter interesting [4:06 PM]
Niagara Falls Reporter reports: 'Bledsoe and company grabbed control of the game, after three Sundays worth of taking what opposing defenses were willing to give them, seizing what they wanted. And once the lake-effect bands started wandering over Orchard Park, obliterating the yard markers and putting the Dolphins into a deep freeze, Buffalo's defense kept Miami from doing much of anything at all.'

Marker Snow-foolin’ Bills beat Dolphins [1:23 PM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'As Bledsoe noted, “I’ve played in cold weather for a long time now — from high school on — and it’s never been a big factor as far as me throwing the ball. “The only effect is if it’s real windy. But a little snow ... I’ve got big hands and I can throw the ball.”'

Marker Williams sets Dolphins rushing record [1:22 PM]
Olean Times Herald reports: '“We gave up way too many plays,” Wannstedt said. “It’s a shame. When you come up here and you know it’s going to be windy and cold and snow, and you think, if we can run the ball, you’d like to think we had a chance. We ran the ball. Unfortunately, because of the big plays and the turnovers, it wasn’t good enough to win."'

Marker Bills’ playoffs hopes soar [1:21 PM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'In short, if it wasn’t for Bledsoe’s glittering season, Henry, Moulds and Price wouldn’t have 1,000 yards in their specialties and Bills’ fans wouldn’t be talking playoffs in Game 13.'

Marker Drew Bledsoe Postgame Quotes [9:56 AM] reports: "I have played in the cold weather for a long time now, from high school on and it has never really been a big factor to me as far as throwing the ball. The only affect really is from the wind. If it's real winding then sometimes it will affect the ball a little bit."

Marker Bills gain traction in the snow [9:20 AM]

Marker Henry snowshoes through Dolphins to 1,000-yard mark [9:19 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'His five 100-yard games this year are the most since Thurman Thomas had seven in 1993.'

Marker Ricky's big rushing day goes to waste [9:18 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The Dolphins wasted Williams' effort with two critical fumbles and an interception that the Bills turned into 21 points. Miami could blame the loss on coaching, quarterbacks, defensive backs and just about anybody other than their star running back. After all, would anybody have predicted he would have piled up so many yards with the snow falling horizontally . . . and the Dolphins would lose?'

Marker Snow, Kelly, victory . . . Bills bring back the fun [9:17 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'You almost expected to see Dan Marino and Don Shula at the podium afterward, explaining away the loss.'

Buffalo News reports: 'Bills fans thought Gregg Williams had lost his mind when he punted from the New England 32 four weeks ago, early in the third quarter, trailing by 10. Overly conservative, that was. Wannstedt did Williams twice worse.'
