Buffalo Bills News - November 26, 2014

Marker Bills back to normal after finally returning home [1:51 AM]
AP reports: '"It was just a busy, hectic week. And really this win was for the city of Buffalo, giving back for everything that they've been through," receiver Robert Woods said. "It feels good, especially after a win. Now we've just got to get another one."'

Marker Bills-Browns on for Sunday despite stadium damage [1:50 AM]
The Sports Network reports: '"We had less leaks than we really anticipated, less issues than we anticipated, but still a lot of damage," said Major. "And that's what we're focused on now is the repair work."'

Marker Bills happy about this tale of two draft freaks [1:49 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: 'So it is early and the jury has a while to consider whether Clowney was worth that pick. But in Buffalo, the Bills are happy with Williams. He looks very much like the highest-paid player on the team. In a 38-3 win over the New York Jets on Monday night, Williams racked up another two sacks, giving him 12 for the season, just two off the career high he set at Houston.'

Marker Bills expect Sunday's home game to be at home [1:48 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: '"We've had pipes and some things that have had issues, but right now everything is being worked through. All indications lead to a full game-day experience on Sunday."'

Marker Bills' air game features the other receiver [1:47 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: 'Woods' performance was vital to the success of the passing game. He entered the NFL as a second-round pick in 2013, billed as the most NFL-ready receiver in that draft, but while Woods has played fairly well, he has rarely been a difference-maker. Until Monday. He set career highs for catches (9) and yards (118) with eight of the receptions converting first downs, and one resulting in a touchdown.'

Marker It's official: Bills will play Browns in Buffalo Sunday [1:46 AM]
WGR-AM reports: '“We've got some ceiling tile damage, we've got our ring wall on the field is damaged in places from the snow removal, we've got some pipes that have burst in some of the concessions and some of the restroom areas,” Major revealed. “Our fieldhouse wall caved in a little bit in our practice facility which is not going to affect the team at all or our practices, it's already been repaired.”'

Marker Thanks Bills [1:45 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Look, I didn't experience this storm like so many of you did. But I'd be willing to bet that scenes like the one playing out in my living room were happening all over Western New York. The game even happened at an early enough hour that I could see my way clear to let my guys push past their normal bedtime to enjoy it with me. Here's hoping many of you did likewise.'

Marker Coming home: What it took to dig out the Ralph [1:44 AM] reports: '“Once the travel bans were lifted, about 500 total shovelers were here triple shifting from Saturday to Monday night,” said Bills VP of Event Operations, Andy Major. “They did a tremendous job, and we’re very thankful to Jani-King who lined that project up for us. We really appreciated what the shovelers were doing and I think they really came through for us.”'

Marker What they're saying: Bills 38, Jets 3 [1:43 AM] reports: '“We’re happy, no doubt about it. There are so many people to thank. Afterwards I gave the game ball to obviously the emergency response team in Erie County. I think that’s important, pretty much too many people to thank for us being able to get it together. More importantly the players did a heck of a job coming out tonight and really playing well. Defensively and offensively we did a better job in the red zone. We talked about it all week and we were able to run the football down there, which was important. Special teams, I think early on we didn’t do a very good job with the field position, a couple penalties early. I thought pretty much our guys were ready to go. Whether we rallied around all the adversity or not I think those are questions for them, obviously we talked about it. We wanted to give the people back in our region a chance to smile a little bit by the way we play. I told you that, that’s how I feel, and that it’s important for them than it is anything else. I’m just proud of this football team and it’s just too many people to thank to stay up here.'

Marker Bills offense leans on Robert Woods [1:42 AM] reports: 'Part of the reason Woods was able to be so successful was his matchup came against Jets rookie DB Marcus Williams, whom he didn’t see the first time around. Marcus Williams, an undrafted free-agent, was activated to the Jets’ 53-man roster just earlier this month. The Bills knew about the matchup but to them, it didn’t matter who was lining up against them.'

Marker Bills' Fred Jackson jokingly imitates former teammate Marshawn Lynch in postgame interview [8:04 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'While Lynch added a dozen more one-word answers to round out his interview, Jackson could barely keep a straight face giving that short of an answer. The two played together in Buffalo for their first four seasons in the league, but apparently Jackson's cordial nature with the media didn't rub off on the Seahawks' star.'

He burst to the inside of rookie Jace Amaro and pushed both him and tight end Jeff Cumberland backward until he took down Michael Vick for a 10-yard sack.'

Buffalo News reports: 'Despite all the potential distractions, Doug Marrone kept his team focused and motivated. The Bills were not flat, scoring a touchdown on their first possession.

Buffalo News reports: '“This is Buffalo weather,” said Chauncey Carter, who lives downtown in the city. “It doesn’t bother me at all. I’ve been here since 1 o’clock. I love the Bills. I don’t have a choice. I think a win would lift up the city and give people a distraction from what’s happening at home.”'

Marker Diehard Bills fans head to Detroit to keep their streaks alive [1:50 AM]

"We wanted to give the people back in our region a chance to smile by the way we played."'

Marker Bills were 'shockingly' sharp [1:48 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Never mind the fact that they hadn't played since Nov. 13, and spent almost as much time shoveling snow as they did practicing leading up to this game. The defense was simply dominant as the Jets couldn't get anything established (218 yards).'

Marker Bills have Detroit to thank for setting up showdown with Browns [1:47 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'The Bills had so many highlights against New York it's difficult to list them.'

Marker Report card [1:46 AM]

Rochester D&C reports: '"The heat wave has certainly helped over the last 48 hours," Brandon said with a laugh, referencing the unusually warm temperatures Sunday and Monday in western New York that melted some of the record snow. "We've had over 500 shovelers on site over the last two days and we've made tons of progress.

Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"I'll tell you what," Bills coach Doug Marrone said. "Our fans, they were phenomenal. When I first came out there, I didn't know what to expect. I know there was a radio station trying to garner up a bunch of Jet green out or something like that. We heard that and obviously were concerned about, 'Is it going to be a home field' and stuff like that, be ready for a silent count. As soon as I came out and looked to the right and saw all those blue jerseys, I was like, 'Holy cow, baby. Here we go.' That was a little bit of a relief for me in the beginning of the game."'
