Marker Commitment to routine makes Jerry Hughes special [1:36 AM] reports: 'Hughes gets in his three-point stance and is off like a shot, dipping his inside shoulder to slide under the offensive tackle, circle half the ring and slap the quarterback from behind. The Bills’ pass rusher tries a multitude of rush variations over the course of the next 20 minutes.'

Marker C.J. Spiller's jersey displayed in the Hall of Fame [1:35 AM] reports: 'Spiller’s game-worn throwback jersey from Buffalo’s 29-10 victory over the Miami Dolphins on Sunday is now displayed in the Pro Football Hall of Fame for approximately the next calendar year.

Spiller produced a 102-yard kick-return touchdown in the third quarter and a 47-yard rush in the fourth quarter.'

Marker Bills see red over red zone inadequacies [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Through the first two weeks of the season, the Bills have struggled producing touchdowns once they get inside the red zone. It’s a problem that dates back to last season, when their touchdown percentage of 34 ranked 29th in the NFL.'

Marker Buffalo Bills sign Larry Dean, place Jonathan Meeks on injured reserve [1:58 AM]

Marker Scouting Chargers' opponent: Bills [1:57 AM]
San Diego Union Tribune reports: 'Manuel (6-4 ˝, 238, 4.62) will throw flat-footed even from a clean pocket, but is getting the ball out faster this year and, heeding friend Colin Kaepernick's advice, is taking on fewer tacklers. Is 32 for 48 for 375 yards with two TDs and an interception. When the Bears bit on a run fake, he cruised around end eight yards for the TD.'

Marker All-22 Review - Bills/Dolphins [1:56 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Chips. Quick throws. Motion. It's common sense but if the QB doesn't have the ball, then he can't get sacked. Think back to Mario Williams debut against the New York Jets. No-name tackle Austin Howard kept him at bay. While headlines may have screamed that Williams was a no-show, the truth was in the game plan. A quick passing game is the most effective way to keep sack numbers down. Every little thing helps. From chips and quick throws, to motion that forces Wake himself to alter his read.'

Marker Bills' drought about to end? [1:55 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'To that end, the coaches did a great job Sunday in opening up the Dolphins' defense. But I still have concerns about Marrone's game-day decisions. He admitted Monday to being wrong about what yard line the Bills were on at one point, and then he spent a time out to correct the error. I don't expect him to be perfect, and the Bills' record speaks well of his performance.'

Marker LB Larry Dean signed by Bills [1:55 AM] reports: 'The Buffalo Bills also announced that the team has placed S Jonathan Meeks on the Reserve/Injured list.'

Marker 4 observations from the Bills-Dolphins game [1:54 AM] reports: 'It’s only two games, but the Bills offense has operated at a much slower pace this year than it did last season.

Marker Scouting Report: Chargers at Bills [1:53 AM] reports: 'EJ Manuel has been effective under center for Buffalo, completing 32 of 48 passes for 375 yards, two touchdowns and only one interception for a 95.4 passer rating. His top target is rookie sensation Sammy Watkins, who through two games has caught 11 passes for 148 yards and one touchdown. The Bills also have a particularly potent rushing attack led by the dynamic duo of C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson.'

Marker Are the Buffalo Bills, who could go to 3-0 under Doug Marrone, legit? [2:40 PM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'Well, why not? If the Kansas City Royals and Seattle Mariners can come back from the baseball dead this season, why can't the Bills, long among the football deceased, sit up on their cold slab along Lake Erie and wink at all of us with the bad jokes?'

Marker Bills' D allows for more optimism [2:38 PM]

Buffalo News reports: 'Remember how we screamed for them to throw those crossing patterns to Lee Evans, back when Evans was the highest-paid wideout in team history?

Patrick Fitzgerald said.'

Marker 6 final points about Bills, Dolphins game [1:55 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'lay of the special teams. This was not an area of strength last year for the Bills, but two weeks into this season, there is marked improvement.'

Marker Golisano: 'I'm happy for Terry Pegula' [1:54 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"My primary concern is that they stay in Buffalo, and Terry convinced me that he was going to be in there, so that was it," he said.'

Marker Bills coach Doug Marrone hoping to get linebacker back at practice [1:53 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"We're going to see how he is these first two days," Marrone said. "I mean, they're working him out to see if we can get him back on that field. I think from there we'll be able to see where we're at."'

Marker Preston Brown's snap count and 5 observations [1:52 AM]

Marker Buffalo Bills far from perfect despite 2-0 start [1:50 AM]
AP reports: '"We know it's a long season," Marrone said Monday, a day after the Bills improved to 2-0 with a 29-10 win over Miami. "To sit here and say, 'Oh, did we expect to have people give us credit?' Not when you haven't done anything for such a long period of time. I think we understand that."'

Marker Bills to test LB Rivers next two days [1:49 AM]
WGR-AM reports: '"We're gonna see how he is these first two days," Bills head coach Doug Marrone said on Monday. "They're working him out and seeing if we can get him back on that field. I think from there, then we'll be able to progress and see where he's at."'

Marker Not a lot of Spikes: Bills' playtime percentages vs. Miami [1:48 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'LB Brandon Spikes finished the game with just 15 total snaps on defense, which accounted for a time on the field of just 19-percent. The Dolphins played three wide receivers the majority of the time (Nickell Robey played 86-percent), which could be the basis of why Spikes played so little.'

Marker So Much Good News [1:47 AM]
Bills Daily reports: It’s been a confusing week to be a Bills fan. So much has happened over the past seven days I hardly know where to begin with so many noteworthy events. Stranger still is that all of the big news was positive – I’m not sure I even remember a time when so many good things happened for Bills fans.

Marker Bills trend up as league falls down [11:43 AM]
Niagara Gazette reports: 'The stars aligned this week in Orchard Park. Buffalo has a new prospective owner who has promised to keep the Bills in town.

Marker E.J. Manuel connects with Sammy Watkins early and often in 29-10 win over Miami Dolphins [11:42 AM]
Auburn Citizen reports: 'But Watkins' performance against Miami made it clear that he's the number one receiver on this team. If it wasn't obvious before, it is now. Not only did he have the most receptions and targets — no other Bills receiver had more than four targets against the Dolphins — but Manuel turned to him in key situations.'
