I don't think there's been any big, like, receiving games through the first two weeks of the season. And I watch, so I know that, for a fact. So I think you need to give it a little more time before you start saying, you know, what's what and who's who, if that makes sense."'

Marker Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy thinks Tyrod Taylor gets blamed too much [1:39 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"I hadn't heard that yet," McCoy said. "I guess he gets blamed for everything. I don't think so. Tyrod's a hell of a player, man. He makes plays. Without him, we would have had no shot last week. He made some plays when things weren't blocked well and he got out of it."'

Marker Bills Peterman says he’ll be ready when called upon [1:37 AM]
Batavia Daily News reports: '“Just you saying it, it is something that fans will have their opinions and all that. But I know it’s a tough position to play, quarterback is. It’s very easy to say how to play it from up in the stands or watching on film. When you’re in those live moments things are flying. It’s tough,” Peterman said.'

Marker Tyrod Taylor says Bills have the tools for successful passing game [1:36 AM]

Marker Denver Week 3 Opponent Profile: Broncos Travel To New York To Play The Buffalo Bills [1:32 AM]
KCNC-TV reports: 'This is a difficult game to predict. This will serve as the Broncos’ first road game of the 2017 season. Along with an injury to Broncos starting left tackle Garett Bolles, the Broncos offense may suffer from an inability to run the ball against the Bills’ defensive line. This could be a low-scoring affair if the Broncos do not get out to a fast start. In the end, the winner will be the team that can create scoring opportunities after turnovers, or the team who’s defense can score some points. Both defenses will confuse and frustrate these young quarterbacks. Look for the Broncos to eek out a win, 13-10.'

Marker LeSean McCoy has a simple, maybe too simple, plan to counter the Broncos’ run defense [1:31 AM]
BSN Denver reports: '“Stay true to our keys, our identity. If we get down in the game, just stick with it,” he explained on a conference call with Denver media. “The Cowboys kind of went to the passing game too early. They stopped them a couple times in the running game, and they got down in points. The Broncos, man, they’re a tough group, they really are. I think you just have to keep being consistent, running your plays and you have to keep true to your identity. You can’t change because of how the game is going. They’ll make plays; they’re a good defense. They’re gonna make plays, you just have to keep at it.”'

Marker Bills' front seven to pose 'true challenge' for Broncos, Trevor Siemian [1:30 AM] reports: 'There’s only one way to beat that sort of defense, quarterback Trevor Siemian said Wednesday, and that’s to match the Bills' physicality.

I was impressed with him then. I continue to be impressed. He's smart. He does a lot in-between plays in terms of at the line of scrimmage.

Marker Bills could run into more trouble against Broncos' defense [1:24 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: '"We need to just stay true to our keys and our identity," McCoy said. "If we get back in points and we're down, just stay with it.

WKBW-TV reports: 'The defensive tackle did not practice on Wednesday and sported a big brace to support his right ankle while doing some work on the side with the training staff.

It’s certainly been a disappointing start to the 2017 season for the Bills with Dareus.'

WIVB-TV reports: '“(Carolina) made plays last week and we didn’t,” McCoy added. “Simple as that. It is a different scheme but I do not think it makes that big of a difference. We have been doing this since camp and we know what to do, what not to do.”'

He’s been terrific in that way and we saw tremendous improvement on the field.”'

It’s all about winning,” Frazier said.'
