Buffalo Bills News - September 27, 2016

Marker Bills' defense steps up to challenge vs. Cardinals [1:48 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: '"It was fun out there for the defense," said cornerback Stephon Gilmore, who had two of Buffalo's four interceptions. "We were flying around. We had a great week of practice. We did our thing."'

Marker Rex Ryan on Patriots: 'If Belichick's playing QB, we're coming after him' [1:47 AM]
ESPN reports: '"I know how difficult it is to defend against a running quarterback," Ryan said. "That's what we have to be ready [for] in case Edelman quarterbacks, right? I have a funny feeling he isn't going to be Brady back there."'

Marker Rex Ryan.... delegator? [1:46 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'This comes on the heels of Ryan sitting in on offensive meetings last week with new coordinator Anthony Lynn and his staff, something Rex had not done under former coordinator Greg Roman before he was fired. Ryan took that a step further Sunday, listening - and even helping - on the headsets when Lynn and the offense had the ball.'

Marker Wood happy with offensive turnaround [1:45 AM]
WGR-AM reports: '"He was open to input from the players, he was a player himself, so he knows that players have info on what they want in the game," Wood said. "They're going to take a little more ownership of the offense, I think he did that as the week went on, the players had a voice... I thought Anthony did a great job. It was an awesome first game plan for him."'

Marker Early season saver [1:44 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'But let's not get ahead of ourselves. We'll have all week to consider the Bills chances of beating the Patriots on the road. The win over Arizona featured a couple of things that had been lacking so far in 2016. Tyrod Taylor hurt Arizona with his legs early and then the rest of the Bills running game got going. Also, the defense found a quarterback they could harass in the pocket. Carson Palmer looked off pretty much from start to finish Sunday. Palmer generally is not a guy who you see getting rid the of the ball quickly. The Bills defense under Rex Ryan has had a tough time with quarterbacks who get it out of there fast. So Palmer provided a nice matchup for the Bills defense and they did a good job on him.'

Marker Bills HC Rex Ryan impersonates Bill Belichick [1:43 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'Without even being asked a question, Rex stepped up to the podium and delivered a mumbled injury report, much in the same way that New England head coach Bill Belichick often does with reporters that cover the Patriots.'

Marker Everything Bills HC Rex Ryan said about the Patriots Monday [1:42 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'We need a win in the worst way. But, as far as the Patriots, I think, my admiration is really for Belichick more than anything. As a coach, that’s the guy, that’s the best. He’ll go down as probably the best in the history of the game. So, I like poking fun at him and all that stuff but there’s no coach I respect more than him.'

Marker Brownie Points - Week 3 [1:41 AM] reports: 'So after win number one for the Bills here’s an early look at the Brownie Points leaderboard with the candidates awarded points on a sliding scale (6, 4, 2) in terms of impact on the game.'

Marker Dennis Thurman to continue handling defensive play calls [1:40 AM] reports: '“Dennis did a great job,” said Ryan of Thurman’s play calling Sunday. “I think we’ll do this (going forward). It’s not like we don’t have communication. We always have open lines of communication. If I was calling it or Dennis was calling it we would still be there with each other and always will be.”'

Marker So what was different with Bills OC Lynn at the controls? [1:39 AM] reports: '“We got the ball back to the back deeper,” said McCoy. “The thing is as a running back, what I like is when you get the ball deep; I’m not the biggest guy, but I like to pick if I can go inside, outside, you know it’s more our decision based on, you have to go that way because there is a structure of the play. This one was a little more different.”'

Marker Bills pick off Cardinals [10:03 AM]
Olean Times Herald reports: '“To go out and get a win on them, it shows the rest of the league that we’re for real.”'

Marker Bills’ victory over Cards was no fluke [10:03 AM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'The offense had an 8-minute edge in time of possession, turned the ball over only once and averaged nearly seven yards on 32 carries en route to three rushing touchdowns.'

Marker Fitzgerald quieted again in return to Buffalo [10:02 AM]
Olean Times Herald reports: '“A lot of it was self-inflicted,” he said following Arizona’s 33-18 loss to the Bills on Sunday at New Era Field, “but you have to tip your hat. Those guys had their backs against the wall. Start the season 0-2; a lot of chatter around the league about them, and those guys responded. They were the better team today.”

Marker Bills get ‘D-best’ of Cards [10:01 AM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer, who wasn’t intercepted in the first two games this season, was picked off in Arizona’s final four possessions. Two were by cornerback Stephon Gilmore, his first and second of the campaign, and the first multi-interception game of his 5-year career. Safety Corey Graham and cornerback Corey White also had picks.'

Marker Defense the real story in Bills' stunning victory [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Facing one of the more talented and explosive offenses in the NFL, the Bills gave an inspired showing highlighted by the first four interceptions of the season by Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer. Buffalo's defenders were physically dominant, stuffing the run, sacking Palmer five times and hitting him nine times.'

Marker Bills secondary rebounds from pitiful performance against the Jets with 4 picks of Carson Palmer [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“I like us,” safety Aaron Williams said. “Anything that’s put up against us, I like our odds. No matter what the paper says or what NFL Network or anybody says, we’re going in there knowing we’re probably going to win.”'

Marker You can bet Bills fans still nervous despite 15-point lead and three minutes to go [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"Sometimes you look at being an underdog as a slap in the face, especially at home," Thomas said, referring to how he and his teammates viewed spreads back in his day. "We're fired up. We're upset at the world. Our reporters are getting on us. Our fans are getting on us.'

Marker Notebook: Kyle Williams turns in vintage performance; Aaron Williams savors first career TD, Sammy W [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“If it takes me getting my head beat in by three guys in the middle and we walk off the field like that, I’ll do it every week,” Williams said. “I played well enough for us to win, and that’s what I like.”'

Marker A nice win, but the Bills -- and Tyrod Taylor -- have a long way to go [1:55 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'OK, they won. It was a dream game for Ryan. People were writing his team off. He had his second terrific defensive game out of three, which reminds you that he knows a thing or two about defense. It was a victory right out of the old school handbook -- run and stop the run, get after the opposing quarterback and play good special teams.'

Marker Bills’ game plan plays to Taylor’s strengths [1:54 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The Bills are the only team in the NFL with a quarterback who plays with the elusiveness of Taylor. They rolled the dice with him when they signed him to a six-year contract extension worth $90 million. The contract includes escape clauses, but they also took a gamble on his health.'

Marker Mark Gaughan's Matchup Winners: Ryan & Co. take stretch out of Arians offense [1:53 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The Bills’ defensive tackle was all over the field and abused just about every lineman Arizona threw on the field.'

Marker Mark Gaughan's 10 Plays That Shaped the Game: Cards pay for failing to contain Tyrod [1:52 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Cardinals edge rusher Markus Golden rushed up-field to Taylor’s right and easily was shoved 5 yards behind the quarterback by Jordan Mills. Cardinals linebacker Kevin Minter, doing an Aaron Maybin impersonation (aka going 100 mph in the wrong direction), flew beyond the pocket on a blitz. The right side of the field was wide open and Taylor cruised into the end zone.'

Marker Vic Carucci's Take Five: Bills applied necessary heat, ran with authority [1:51 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The Bills hadn't shown that look in either if their previous two games, and Palmer and the Cardinals weren't ready for it.'

Marker Bucky Gleason's Hot Read: Bills reveal what had been missing [1:50 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The Cardinals were precisely the team the Bills needed to play if they wanted to pull themselves from misery. Super Bowl contenders? The Bills made them look like … they made them look the Bills did in the first two games. Buffalo trampled over Arizona in a 33-18 victory that gave their sun-soaked crowed reasons for optimism.'

Marker Jerry Sullivan's Hot Read: Maybe the Bills should fire someone every week [1:49 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'With Lynn using a more streamlined playbook and running plays at a quicker tempo, the Bills got their running game going, piling up 200 rushing yards and three touchdowns against an Arizona team that had shut down the Buccaneer the week before.'

Marker Jay Skurski's Hot Read: Bills fans can put the pitchforks away for at least a week [1:48 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The defense, playing without starting cornerback Ronald Darby, largely contained a potent Cardinals’ passing attack, with Stephon Gilmore recording two interceptions, and Corey White and Corey Graham adding one more each. The defense won’t come up with four interceptions every week, but it’s exactly what they needed for this one.'

Marker Mark Gaughan's Hot Read: With Lynn pushing right buttons, Bills get their mojo back [1:47 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'LeSean McCoy looked like his Pro Bowl self. With Lynn mixing the run and the pass to keep Arizona off balance, McCoy gashed a Cardinals defense that ranked sixth in the NFL against the run last season.'

Marker Insta-Graham: Only a fool would've counted out Bills against Cardinals [1:46 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Buffalo's defense was wicked at times. Arizona didn't earn a first down on its first five possessions. By the time Buffalo scored 17 points (4:35 into the second quarter), Arizona's offense traveled 7 yards.'

Marker Vic Carucci's Points After: Bills 33, Cardinals 18 [1:45 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The offense made Rex Ryan look like a genius for replacing offensive coordinator Greg Roman with Anthony Lynn after only two games. The players who helped persuade ownership to get aboard with the idea, and the owners themselves, also come out of this looking good. The defense made Ryan's declaration earlier in this week about the coaching prowess of his twin brother, Rob, spot on.'
