Bills survive and advance [1:29 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Yes, it was ugly. Yes, they have to play much better to beat Cincinnati. But they got the win which is all that matters since there isn't a style points tiebreaker for a playoff spot.'
Bills-Titans Arrow Up/Arrow Down [1:28 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Taylor wasn’t very good in the passing game for most of the contest. He was 5-for-11 for 36 yards in the first half. The offense simply couldn’t do anything in the first 30-minutes. But there was something else that wasn’t happening in the first half: Taylor running the ball. The Bills QB only ran one time for two yards before halftime. It wasn’t until the Bills were down 10-0 when Taylor decided to use his legs to take control, and ultimately change the game. He ran 7 times for 74 yards in the second half, but it was really the big plays that were the difference.'
7 observations from Bills - Titans [1:27 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'The Bills have some clear work to do with how to better come in and have an effective day on offense from the get go, but, they dug deep and found a way to get the job done — and that was with a total of one catch for six yards between starting receivers Percy Harvin and Robert Woods.'

Torrid Tyrod Finish Saves Bills [1:26 AM]
WROC-TV reports: 'As mentioned, the jury is still out on him, but you have to love his moxie. And you would think that his play-making opportunities will improve if the Bills can get Sammy Watkins and LeSean McCoy healthy. McCoy may not be back until following the bye week in November. But there’s a chance Watkins and backup running back Karlos Williams could return next Sunday at the Ralph, which would be a big boost because Buffalo is going to need them as they attempt to upset the high-scoring Cincinnati Bengals, who staged a furious second-half comeback to edge Seattle and improve to 5-0.'
Bills Rally For 14-13 Win In Tennessee [1:24 AM]
Bills Daily reports: 'This one was ugly but there was a lot to learn about this team from it. Taylor was having his worst game of the year but showed toughness and gutted it out. He then made plays down the stretch when he had to for his first comeback win of his career. Let's hope he has many more in him. If the Bills are going to be a playoff team they have to win games even when they struggle against inferior opponents. There is a lot not to like in this game but the W is what is most important and they showed some moxy in getting it.'
Solid Defensive Effort Kept The Bills In The Game [1:23 AM]
Bills Daily reports: 'Rex Ryan wanted to get the penalties under control and the team jumped offsides on the opening kickoff. They were only slightly better as they were penalized 7 times for 62 yards. The team came out flat and he takes some heat for that.'
Rex Ryan's undisciplined Bills beat Titans with attitude [1:22 AM]
NFL.com reports: 'Tyrod Taylor did not have a great game statistically, but emotionally, his ability to come back from a serious hit, miss one play and then nail Chris Hogan on a 46-yard rope to set up the game-winning touchdown. On that drive, he also caught a trick pass in traffic. It's unbelievable how criminally overlooked Taylor was over the years given the absolute lack of quality starters.'

Wristbands help remind Bills to keep emotions in check [1:19 AM]
BuffaloBills.com reports: '“We just tried to stay focused and tried to stick with what we wanted to do, and not give them any big plays and things like that,” said Graham. “You’ll have ups and downs out there, obviously, some penalties and things that didn’t go our way. You just got to hold your composure. You can’t lose it. You can’t find a way to give them extra yards and when it’s all said and done, you have to make plays and win the game.”'
What they’re saying: Bills-Titans postgame quotes [1:18 AM]
BuffaloBills.com reports: 'I love it, I loved the fact that we wanted to be on the field at the end of the game on defense. We weren’t afraid. Sometimes the guys get nervous about it and they don’t convert on third down and our guys couldn’t wait to get on that field and that’s the sign of a good team, a good defense, so I was excited about that. I loved the way the offense responded. We had 50 yards at halftime, that was ugly, there’s no question that was ugly. But it ended up being beautiful at the end. We just kept fighting and kept hanging in there. Was a lot of it based on individual effort? It was absolutely was, and we will take it.'
Fifteen years later, the ‘Miracle’ lingers on for Bills [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“It’s almost like a curse,” kicker Steve Christie said. “I don’t need to tell you. Look at the team’s record since that game. Look at all the coaches we’ve had. Look at the GMs. Look at the personnel upstairs, management, everything.”'
Bills need this win to avoid crisis mode [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The Titans were 2-14 last season, which tied them for the worst record in the NFL and earned them the right to choose second overall in the draft.

Three and Out: Bills-Titans game preview [1:55 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Can highly touted rookie Marcus Mariota survive an angry Bills defense? Buffalo's highly regarded line has come under fire because it has not played to the level of expectation that was set by coach Rex Ryan. Ryan bombastically stated that his defense would be the best in the NFL this year, and it certainly has not been that.'

Buffalo News reports: '“I had to pass the doctors’ tests before I could even practice,” said Williams, who is listed as probable for the game. “I had to show I could turn my head a certain way. Do I feel pinching in this? Do I feel this pain in that? There was a lot of stuff that they did. They really took precaution with my injury and wanted to make sure I was ready to come back.”'
All eyes on Mariota, Taylor [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Marcus Mariota feels like a rookie quarterback making only his fourth NFL start. The Bills’ defense should be preparing for a feast. Young, inexperienced quarterbacks aren’t supposed to be any match for a unit whose intention is to create chaos and confusion for the guy under center and the guys protecting him. And this, at least logically, is a game where Rex Ryan and defensive coordinator Dennis Thurman don’t think twice about unloading their wide array of blitz packages all over Mariota.'
