Marker Bills get HOT in Miami [3:19 PM]
Olean Times Herald reports: '“We felt, coming in, that it would come down to whose defense played the better game and won the turnover battle,” Fletcher said. “We picked a great game to finally get some interceptions.

Marker Lucas takes blame for loss [3:18 PM]

Marker Lucas' South Florida time-share becomes a hall of shame [12:15 PM] reports: Peter King's MMQB: "DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK --Buffalo cornerback Nate Clements. The Bills had four takeaways in their first six games of the year. Clements had three interceptions in the 23-10 Buffalo win Sunday -- one he returned 29 yards for the clinching touchdown -- as well as four solo tackles and four passes broken up. The picks were also the first three interceptions of the Bills' season. What a tour de force of a game, even though, if I give Clements a trophy for this, he's going to have to saw it in half and give half to Ray Lucas. Clements said after the game that Lucas "threw it right" to him on the pick returned for touchdown. There wasn't much sugarcoating the Lucas factor after the game."

Marker One Game For A Team, One Giant Step For The Season [12:11 PM] reports: Buffalo's 23-10 victory is more than a win over an old rival. It's a game that, when we look back at the 2002 season, elevated the Bills to a place where it became okay to hope. It's doesn't guarantee a playoff spot, or even a winning final record. But it does put the Bills one step closer.
