Marker Lucas feels both the high and the low in Dolphins' loss [5:15 AM]
Naples Daily News reports: 'The Dolphins had an opportunity to be 6-1, and more importantly 3-0 in the division, heading into the bye week. Instead, they're 5-2 and 2-1, and face road games at Green Bay on a Monday night and at the Jets with Lucas still at the helm.'

Marker Lucas, Dolphins stumble in loss to Bills [5:13 AM]

Marker Lucas rips his own performance in loss to Buffalo [5:12 AM]

Marker Bye week bound to help Dolphins heal [5:10 AM]
Florida Today reports: 'The six turnovers were the most by a Miami team since it committed seven in a 62-7 divisional playoff loss at Jacksonville on Jan. 15, 2000. It was the most in the regular season since they also committed six in a 38-16 loss at Atlanta on Dec. 27, 1998.'

Marker Lucas Struggles After Fast Start for Dolphins [5:09 AM]
New York Times reports: 'As defensive end Pat Williams headed to the Buffalo Bills' locker room today, he shouted, "Miami's overrated! Miami's overrated!" And Williams did not soften that stance later. "Yeah, they're overrated," he said after the Bills' 23-10 victory before 73,180 at Pro Player Stadium. "That was our home field out there. We had the dark colors and they had the white jerseys on, but this was our home field today."'

Marker Picks and pans: Give Miami a thumbs down [5:07 AM]
Boston Globe reports: 'In the meantime, though, there are few targets left for Lucas, and that left him wearing an oversized bull's-eye.

Marker Drew's day one Brady would love [5:06 AM]

Marker Buffalo Paints Miami Blue [5:05 AM]
Washington Post reports: 'If the game proved a dreadful debut for Lucas, who completed as many passes to Bills cornerback Nate Clements (three) as he did to any Dolphins receiver, Buffalo's players hoped it signaled something more promising for them: That they have completed their rebound from a poor season last year, finally returning to contender status and perhaps symbolically passing the reeling Dolphins, one of their most heated AFC rivals, on their way up.'

Marker Vic Carucci: Bills Suddenly A Force [10:15 PM] reports: Buffalo 23, Miami 10: For a change, Drew Bledsoe didn\'t have to carry the Bills on his ample shoulders.

Marker Bills-Dolphins Postgame Quotebook [10:10 PM] reports: Coach Gregg Williams: "We wanted to make sure that he (Ray Lucas) stayed in the pocket and throw the football. We felt we would do a pretty good job in coverage and we did that today. Nate (Clements) had some good plays, but could have had some more. We left some plays on the field that I wish we could have got. It was a good team win."

Marker Game Notebook at Miami Dolphins [4:23 PM] reports: Nate Clements: Recorded the Bills first INT of the season and the fourth of his career (first vs. Miami) when he picked off Ray Lucas at the Buffalo 14; the theft not only killed a Miami drive in the red zone but set up another as the Bills scored two plays later on a 70-yard Bledsoe-to-Moulds TD pass…then recorded his second INT of the first half later in the second quarter and returned it 29 yards for a TD that put the Bills up 17-10…

Marker Pregame Notebook at Miami Dolphins [3:54 PM] reports: The home team has won 8 of the past 11 in the series… the team that has won the turnover battle has won 10 of the past 11… Drew Bledsoe has passed for 4,208 yards vs. the Dolphins, his most vs. any opponent… Travis Henry has rushed for 97 yards on 19 carries (5.1 avg) with 1 TD in only career meeting with Dolphins.

Marker O'Shei's Three Keys to the Game [12:05 PM] reports: The Buffalo Bills are 3-3; the Miami Dolphins, 5-1. Do the math: A Buffalo win would put the Bills within one game of the Dolphins, who stand atop the AFC East. Right now, a playoff berth for the Bills stands as a possibility—no more, no less. A win over Miami, however, could push the Bills far deeper into the hunt.

Marker Bills' gamble paying off [10:17 AM]

Marker Molded in his own image [9:34 AM]

Marker Q&A with Pierson Prioleau [6:44 AM]
D and C reports: '“I would change all of the rules in the game that allow the offense to take advantage of the defense. Pass interference, roughing the quarterback, any rule that allows the offense to get any edge on the defense, I would take it out of the game and see how the game is played.”'
