Marker Calm, cool Orton delivers Bills in the clutch [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'How poorly did the Bills play? Their coach, Doug Marrone, clearly was unable to enjoy it, wearing a sour expression in his postgame news conference as he shared the message he had delivered to the players immediately after the game: “We’ve got a lot of improvement to do. … I’m already on to other things. … I’ve got to get back to work and get some things fixed.

Buffalo News reports: 'It was good of Marrone to put this one in perspective. He’s a head coach, after all.

Marker Bills may be in position to change karma [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Maybe they’re learning how to win.'

Marker Game turns out right despite wrong turns [1:54 AM]

Marrone lost a challenge.'

Marker Orton, Watkins rally Bills past Vikes [1:44 AM]
Olean Times Herald reports: '“I would hate to be characterized as grumpy after a win,” an unsmiling Marrone said. “But I don’t help myself (being upbeat) right now. My mind is already going ahead, it’s my responsibility. To come in here and B.S. you guys, come on.'

Marker Terry Pegula gets game ball from Russ Brandon after first win as Buffalo Bills owner [1:37 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'Pegula likely didn't picture a sloppy, four-turnover game in which the Bills narrowly escaped defeat against an inferior Minnesota Vikings team with a 17-16 win.

Marker Bills running back out for game against Vikings after hurting groin [1:35 AM]
