Buffalo Bills News - October 25, 2014

Marker Bills’ O-line must play its best game yet this season [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The Jets simply have too much pass-rushing talent for even the best offensive lines to handle.'

Marker Jets expected to utilize Harvin any way they can [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“It’s awful hard to come in and, ‘Oh, by the way, here’s the offense; learn it in a week,’ ” Ryan said during a phone call with reporters covering the Bills. “I don’t know if that’s realistic. But we’ll have some plays for him, let him get back there and return a kick and things like that.'

Marker Nathaniel Hackett says Buffalo Bills will ride hot hand between Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown [1:57 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"They're both going to play, they're both going to get some carries, and we're going to go with that hot hand just like we do every week," Hackett said.'

Marker Bills offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett explains Mike Williams falling down depth chart [1:56 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"It's a roller coaster the whole season," Hackett said. "He's great. It's just about being clear with everybody what we're asking, where we want them to be. As long as we have a clear picture of that, everybody should be good. I think that as a coach, the minute that you hide what you're feeling or hide how you feel, than nothing's going to change. I think that just Mike has to keep working, keep understanding the system better, get a relationship with the new quarterback, which is different than the one he was with originally. All those other guys have to keep doing the same thing they're doing. They have to keep on working, keep on progressing, so that everyone's progressing.'

Marker Snapping MetLife losing streak, and 5 things to watch in Week 8 [1:55 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'All week, Bills fans, fantasy owners and anyone else watching Buffalo closely has been wondering how coach Doug Marrone will divide carries between running backs Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown. Dixon has been running with the starters and is in line to start, but Brown is the bigger threat to take a carry the distance. Oh, and the Jets are allowing just 3.6 yards per carry this season, so the Bills' running game has its work cut out for it.'

Marker Aaron Williams (neck) listed as questionable [1:54 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'Cornerback Ron Brooks was added to the list of players given the probable tag. He suffered a groin injury in practice and was limited, but it doesn't seem to be serious.'

Marker Bills receiver Marquise Goodwin listed as doubtful [1:49 AM]
AP reports: 'Starting safety Aaron Williams and reserve receiver Marcus Easley are listed questionable. Williams aggravated a neck injury in a 17-16 win over Minnesota last weekend. Easley resumed practicing this week after missing four games with a left knee injury.'

Marker Bills, Jets take opposite approach with young QBs [1:48 AM]
AP reports: '"It goes by performance and we were looking for more production," Marrone said. "EJ has taken a step back and he's doing very well supporting Kyle anytime he can or anything he can do to help. Kyle was in that role before, and he did anything he could to help. That's pretty much it."'

Marker Bills WR Goodwin doubtful vs. Jets [1:47 AM]
The Sports Network reports: 'Goodwin sat out practice all week for the injury-plagued Bills, who were already missing running backs Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller.'

Marker Bills' Jackson ruled out vs. Jets, Goodwin doubtful [1:46 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'It could be yet another game missed for second-year wide receiver Marquise Goodwin as well. Goodwin had to leave practice last Thursday with a hamstring injury and has not been an on-field participant since. He was inactive against the Vikings and is listed as 'doubtful' for the game with the Jets.'

Marker Bills Gameplan: How to Attack the Jets [1:45 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'I have never, ever seen a Rex Ryan-coached defense play so much zone coverage. Cover-2 with corner backs underneath in the flats; Cover-3; even some Cover-4 on non 3rd and long-yardage situations. I’ve also never seen his CBs play so far off opposing WRs so consistently. It’s truly weird. But it’s an indictment on how Rex feels about his CBs, and maybe his secondary overall. He can’t trust them to play man-to-man as he has so often before. Check out these two screenshots, then see my notes underneath.'

Marker Sammy Watkins named Week 7 NFL Rookie of the Week [1:44 AM] reports: 'Watkins, who also won the award in Week 2, tallied nine catches for 122 yards and a pair of touchdowns – all career-highs – in the Bills 17-16 comeback win over the Minnesota Vikings at Ralph Wilson Stadium. With just one second remaining, Watkins' TD grab near the boundary capped a 15-play, 80-yard drive that lifted the Bills to victory.'

Marker Scouting Report: Bills at Jets [1:43 AM] reports: 'Seantrel Henderson vs. Muhammad Wilkerson – The Bills rookie right tackle has had some growing pains of late. He’ll face a supremely talented defensive lineman in Wilkerson, and may need some help from a tight end to keep the Pro Bowl DL from making a major impact.'

Marker Ryan still talking even as Jets are losing [11:22 AM]
Olean Times Herald reports: '“You handle it as if you were 6-1, you go about your job ... the best job you can as a coach. You line it up each week and put everything you have into preparation and putting our players into a situation where we think they can be successful.”'

Marker Hogan leaps at opportunities with Bills [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“Have we seen the best of Chris Hogan?” Marrone asked. “I can’t answer that because he keeps getting better and stepping up every time. Every time you try to count him out a little bit if he doesn’t have the greatest day, the next day he’ll come back and you say to yourself, ‘Holy cow.’"'

Marker Goodwin likely to miss second straight game [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“I’m a little frustrated, but at the end of the day, that’s just part of the game we play,” Goodwin said. There is a “100 percent injury rate. We’re the only sport that’s like that. There’s not much too much, really, I can do about it. Being frustrated is not really going to help me get better, so I’m just going to try to move past it.”'

Marker Chris Hogan takes on increased role with Buffalo Bills [1:57 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'A two-time all-ECAC selection as a midfielder, Hogan had a year of NCAA playing eligibility remaining after graduating from Penn State (he redshirted as a sophomore due to an ankle injury). He decided to scratch an itch and use it playing football somewhere as a grad student.'

Marker Doug Marrone says you can go out in Buffalo and meet a guy like Kyle Orton [1:56 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"On a personal level, outside of the football, he's a regular guy," Bills coach Doug Marrone said. "You can go out in Buffalo and meet a guy with his personality anywhere. In a bar, in a bowling alley, in a pool room, in a place where your family is. Just a normal, regular guy. No ego. Highly competitive. That's probably the thing you wouldn't see until you watched him compete and saw how competitive he is, how hard he is on himself, how well he prepares. I think, generally, the people in this region would be able to at least understand him. He's a lot like us and like people from here."'

Marker Marquise Goodwin misses practice Thursday [1:55 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'Buffalo Bills wide receiver Marquise Goodwin again missed practice on Thursday with a hamstring injury he suffered last week, and his playing for status in Week 8 is again up in the air.'

Marker The major problem the Bills’ defensive line presents for Jets [1:54 AM]
New York Post reports: '“The two [defensive tackles] we’re going against are the best two in the league, next to [Detroit’s Ndamukong] Suh and [Nick] Fairley, hands down,’’ said right guard Willie Colon. “They’re game-wreckers, especially Kyle Williams. He’s been doing it so long. He’s definitely a guy you’ve got to scout for."'

Marker What can Jets expect to see from Bryce Brown vs. Bills? [1:53 AM]
Newark Star Ledger reports: 'Brown's vision on the field is also an issue. Time and time again in Philadelphia, Brown would bounce a play to the outside, trying to get to the sideline as opposed to going straight up the gut and getting what is there. That frustrated Eagles' coaches, and it had an impact on his playing time when he was the backup.'

Marker Buffalo Bills' porous protection bodes well for Jets' chances of hammering quarterback Kyle Orton [1:52 AM]
Newark Star Ledger reports: 'Orton has been sacked on 9.5 percent of his drop-backs this season. All told this season, the Bills have allowed the 10th-highest sack percentage in the NFL, at 6.9.'

Marker Jets Have Been Aware of Watkins for a While [1:51 AM] reports: '“Just watching him throughout all of last season, I was a fan of him last year,” he said. “He was in the ACC and I’m an ACC guy myself. He did a whole lot of things at Clemson and he’s doing them now.”'

Marker Bills' Aaron Williams limited for second straight practice [1:47 AM]

Marker Bills' Marrone on injured Goodwin: ''Availability is a big thing'' [1:46 AM]
WGR-AM reports: '“Availability is a big thing. It's very difficult, especially when they occur early in your career, to continue to get better and better,” Marrone said. “It's almost like when those things happen, I don't want to say you start back at square one, but there's definitely a move back before you can go ahead and start working to get forward. He's definitely frustrated with it and that's part of this game. One of the things that, it's not a secret, you talk about players with all the time is availability. He hasn't been available as often as he would like to be or as we would like him to be.”'

Marker Jets Game Preview [1:45 AM]

Marker Sacks aplenty again for Bills [1:44 AM] reports: '“Allowing our secondary to do its job,” DE Jerry Hughes said when asked how they have been able to sustain last year’s numbers. “They've really been doing a fantastic job of making quarterbacks go to their second and third reads, taking away that first option so quarterbacks have to figure out where they want to go once their first option is taken away. When the secondary does that it buys [the defensive line] more time to do what we do.”'
