Marker Rivers benched for Brown: Bills' playtime percentage vs. Vikings [1:43 AM]

Brown received 100-percent of the snaps, while the man he replaced only had seven snaps total — the lowest of any defender on the Bills roster.

I like to think of myself as someone that can get back before typical (time frames). It’s going to be on me to get in there and rehab and see the team doctors and do what it is they want me to do and hopefully I'll be able to get back a lot sooner than (normal)."'

Marker Bills snatch win from Vikings [1:44 AM]
Olean Times Herald reports: '“I would hate to be characterized as grumpy after a win,” an unsmiling Marrone said. “But I don’t help myself (being upbeat) right now. My mind is already going ahead, it’s my responsibility. To come in here and B.S. you guys, come on.'
