Marker Grading the Bills [8:54 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'When it mattered, Bills stopped the run. Niners had just 33 yards at halftime. Another day at the office.'

Niagara Gazette reports: 'The Bills, who started the season with four straight losses, now have a six-game winning streak, their longest streak in 14 years.'

Marker Bills have gone other way since matching 49ers at 1-5 [6:58 AM]
San Francisco Chronicle reports: 'Although Buffalo lost 29-6, Milloy -- who was cut by the Patriots before the start of last season -- said New England represented the consistency the Bills wanted to achieve. They haven't lost since. "That was pretty much our wakeup call," said Milloy, who picked off Cody Pickett in the third quarter. "It wasn't like we came out of the block the week after that. We gradually got better. But we understand that if we wanted to get where we want to be, we'll have to beat them at some point in the season. We're working hard to get back to the point where we can play them."'

Marker Door still open for the Bills [5:05 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"We were playing a team that has struggled this year and we wanted to make sure there wasn't a lull and we didn't take them lightly," Buffalo center Trey Teague said. "There's always a team in this situation that overlooks somebody and loses, and we didn't want that to be us."'

Marker Bills earn kudos for turnaround [5:04 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'But it is a testament to the Bills' character, talent, focus and resolve that they have reached Week 17 with a legitimate chance to make the playoffs.'

Marker How the West was won, sort of [5:03 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Really, why be angry with the NFC West? We should be sending those teams flowers and candy. Think about it. Would Buffalo's historic resurrection from the depths of 0-4 have been possible without the good fortune of four games against one of the weakest divisions in years?'

Marker Buffalo needs help in final week [5:02 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'If the season ended today, the Bills would fall short of the playoffs. But Buffalo can still make the playoffs with a win at home against the Pittsburgh Steelers (14-1) Sunday and a loss by either the New York Jets (10-5) or Denver Broncos (9-6).'

Marker Two-minute read [5:01 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '49ers QBs Ken Dorsey and Cody Pickett: The two young pros were taken to school, going a combined 9 of 20 for 109 yards, 0 touchdowns, 3 interceptions, 3 sacks and a 22.7 rating. Gray's blitzes would've challenged the most experienced of players, and Dorsey and Pickett looked like two guys trying to run across five lanes of traffic at rush hour.'

Marker Report card [5:00 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'The fake punt when leading 20-0 was silly, but hey, you've got to do something to keep it interesting against yet another JV opponent.'

Marker Bills still in playoff picture [4:52 AM]
Toronto Sun reports: '"I knew what the scores were," Bills quarterback Drew Bledsoe said in his post-game press conference. "But at the same time, you've got to do your job and go about your business. Otherwise it doesn't mean anything."'

Marker On The Brink Of The Playoffs [4:50 AM]
Erie Times News reports: 'The jolly old fat man delivered all four gifts on Sunday afternoon, making an improbable playoff appearance by the Buffalo Bills something that is extremely possible if two of three things occur next Sunday.'

Marker Bills won't fold in finale [4:50 AM]
CBS Sportsline reports: 'I don't know if the Buffalo Bills make the AFC playoffs, but I know they should.'

Marker The Bills Take The Playoff Race To The Very End [4:49 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'The only reason the 49ers got on the board late was because Buffalo had its second team defense in.'

Marker Bills Rout San Francisco [4:47 AM] reports: 'The Bills scored 30 or more points for the sixth straight time.'

Marker Buffalo Closing in on Postseason Berth [4:45 AM] reports: 'The defense tied a record for most turnovers in a six game span in NFL history with 26. Special teams threatened to score all day and gave the offense great field position throughout the game. The offense scored 41 points with two touchdowns coming from running back Willis McGahee. It was a complete team effort.'

Marker Team Wins In Dominating Fashion [4:44 AM] reports: Another week, another dominating win, another solid performance by all three phases of the team. The offense moved the ball well while the defense forced four turnovers and the special teams gave them great field position with a few nice returns. Here are our position by position grades:

Marker Bills Win Big Again 41-7 [8:04 PM] reports: 'The Bills won this game, like they have won many in what is perhaps the greatest streak in the club's storied history. The defense forced four turnovers and the special teams had a number of big returns to shorten the field. The offense not only didn't do anything wrong, they were crisp and executed beautifully throughout making this another total team victory.'

Marker Buffalo 41, San Francisco 7 [7:02 PM]
AP reports: 'Willis McGahee's knee felt pretty good after all -- and after flattening the pathetic 49ers, the Buffalo Bills were feeling great about their playoff chances.'

Marker Buffalo 41, San Francisco 7 [7:02 PM]
Sportsticker reports: 'Buffalo feasted on the NFC West this season, winning all four games by a combined margin of 160-47.'

Marker Buffalo 41, San Francisco 7 [7:01 PM]
The Sports Network reports: 'McGahee, who surpassed the 1,000-yard mark for the season with a 20-yard run early in the third quarter, was questionable up until game-time with a knee injury. He now has rushed for 1,049 yards this season, over 100 yards in seven of his 10 starts and also recorded his fourth multi-TD game.'

Marker Bills looking for playoff berth; SF simply looking for motivation [11:06 AM]
Santa Rosa Press Democrat reports: 'In fact, this can be a "trap game" for the Bills, who might also have to defeat the Pittsburgh Steelers on the final Sunday of the regular season to make the playoffs. The Steelers, of course, are 13-1 and will clinch home-field advantage with a victory today against Baltimore. Therefore, it is possible that the Bills will overlook a team that boasts its only two victories against the Arizona Cardinals.'

Marker Bills scare up a sense of urgency [8:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"If you had a lot of success throughout the year, you might feel that way," he said. "But the way we started gave us a taste of being at the bottom of the barrel. When you're at the bottom of the barrel and you start winning, you don't want to go back there. . . . We're playing scared. That's exactly how you want to do it. You want to play scared and take care of business. We plan to go out and do that."'

Marker Raising the baton [8:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"He's a tremendous motivator," Bills defensive back Troy Vincent said. "I can appreciate a coach who understands what's going on through your mind after a play happens, instead of everything being so textbook because this is not a textbook game."'

Marker Once Bledsoe gets rocking, Bills figure to roll [8:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Bills continue to roll with 30-13 win.'

Marker Spiritual rebirth helps Bills' April weather storm [8:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"The kids were adamant about me getting back into coaching," April said. "They told me, "That's what you are.' "'

Marker McGahee, not Brees, is league's best comeback story [8:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The reason McGahee deserves the award is this: Brees almost lost his job with the Chargers; McGahee almost lost his career to the catastrophic knee injury he suffered in January 2003. Brees had a bad year in 2003. McGahee couldn't even play in 2003.'

Marker 49ers vs. Bills [8:27 AM]
Sacramento Bee reports: 'Blitz Bledsoe: Drew Bledsoe is only 32 and yet it seems as if he's been playing since the AFL-NFL merger. Maybe it's because he's not all that spry. In fact, the Bills quarterback has been likened to a cigar-store Indian in terms of mobility.'

Marker Bills (8-6) vs. 49ers (2-12) [6:18 AM]
San Francisco Chronicle reports: 'Buffalo runs an offensive scheme similar to the 49ers', with the two-tight end formations and commitment to the run. The Bills then like to throw over the top when the linebackers and safeties sneak up to stop the run. Pressure on quarterback Drew Bledsoe will be a key, and the improving secondary can step forward if it can stay with receivers Lee Evans and Eric Moulds.'

Marker Bills recover from their poor start, unlike the 49ers [6:17 AM]
Contra Costa Times reports: 'The Bills' first-round draft pick, wide receiver Lee Evans, has 38 receptions for 588 yards and seven touchdowns. The 49ers' first-round pick, wide receiver Rashaun Woods, has three catches for 67 yards and a touchdown.'
