Marker Power Take: Fourth NFL preseason game should permanently go away [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'There is growing sentiment among NFL owners to get rid of the fourth game and give teams two weeks to ramp up for the regular season. But the NFL has been too slow to act. Teams already have a way to make up part of the lost revenue: With variable pricing plans that increase ticket prices for several of the more attractive regular-season games. Coaches easily could live with just two exhibitions, in fact, by running joint practices and scrimmages with other teams. For the love of God, please spare us four exhibitions.'

Marker Power Take: Double standard apparent when it comes to anthem [1:57 AM]

It's just icing on the cake if he does make the 53."'

Marker Buffalo Bills WR Dez Lewis hoping to 'find his groove' in time to make 53-man roster [1:54 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"I haven't seen that big of an improvement from him," Ryan said. "So, he'll get some opportunities, and he's got to stand out if he wants to make this team," Ryan said. "He's got to earn it. Nobody's going to give you anything. I love having the big size guy that should be a red-zone threat, but eventually you've got to come down with some plays."'

Marker Bills-Redskins Arrow Up/Arrow Down [1:50 AM]

Marker Lorenzo Alexander turns in strong pass rush performance [1:47 AM] reports: '“We are going to play the best 11.

We know what’s coming down the road, we get it. But this guy is doing a tremendous job for us. I don’t want to gas him too much, but at the end of the day, we are going to play our best.”'

Marker Rex Ryan plays it ultra-safe in Bills' preseason loss to Redskins [1:59 AM]

Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"I really like the way he played," Ryan said. "I like the way he competes. He has a great look in his face, man, he loves playing. Guys, you know what, sometimes quarterbacks take a little longer to develop, and I think this is the best EJ Manuel that I've seen."'

Marker Rex Ryan says Buffalo Bills Chris Gragg, Jonathan Dowling could have ACL injuries [1:54 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"Both of them it looks like ACLs," Ryan said after the game at FedEx Field. "It's a real shame, you know.
