Marker Vic Carucci's Take Five: Blount isn't Ajayi & Bills must keep it that way [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'It's fair to say the Bills will be determined to avoid being overmatched physically, something that doesn't figure to happen against an offensive line that isn't as good as the one they faced at Hard Rock Stadium. It's also fair to say that they can, and probably will, clean up the issues they had with cutbacks and missed tackles.'

Marker Vic Carucci's Bills Wake-Up Call: Was O-line disaster an aberration? [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The behemoths ran into a defensive front that not only matched their strength and scrappiness, but far surpassed it. This was an awful day that the Bills' offensive linemen never believed was possible, especially after the way it made would-be tacklers seemingly vanish through the previous two games and earlier stretches of a four-game winning streak.'

Marker Buffalo Bills fall in Week 8 power rankings after loss to Miami Dolphins [1:55 AM]

The rookie out of Northwestern State is a quick and elusive wide out that gets in and out of his cuts quickly. Creating quick separation is important in the scope of Buffalo’s passing offense.'

Marker Bills Today: Aaron Williams up and around; status TBD [1:49 AM] reports: '“Well no (I wouldn’t rule him out), I mean I am not a (medical) professional, but we are absolutely going to err on the side of caution,” Ryan said. “You know there is no doubt with a head and neck injury that is probably as severe of an injury as you can get so you will make sure that he is never going to go out on the field if he hasn’t been cleared by professionals certainly.”'

Marker Ryan moving on after loss to Dolphins [10:14 AM]
Olean Times Herald reports: '“It’s a huge challenge. I want to say it now because Tom Brady’s playing … just kidding,” Ryan said. “But, in all seriousness, we’re going to measure ourselves against the two best now (Buffalo plays at Seattle the following Monday). We’re going to find out all about us. After a game like this, where we clearly never played – or coached – as good as we need to, the ultimate test is right in front of us.”'

Marker Analysis: Missed tackles played a big part in Jay Ajayi running all over Bills [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The analytics website Pro Football Focus charged the Bills with a whopping 16 missed tackles against the Dolphins, bringing their season total to 57 ­– fourth most in the NFL.

"The player needs to sign off on it, so it’s not just, ‘Hey, the medical says you’re OK. You’re going out there.’ So LeSean wanted to play. He felt like he was ready to play. We took him to pregame and he was running routes at full speed and burst and things like that.'

Marker Pats have a way of ruining your sweep dreams [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Going back to 2001 season, the year Tom Brady took over as the quarterback, the Patriots have never lost twice to a team in the AFC East in the regular season.

Marker Rex Ryan's Monday presser after the Dolphins loss [1:55 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Alright obviously you know I talked about the game after it happened nothing really changed. You know we were still in the game and like I mentioned yesterday even though we were up by 11 points in the second half it never felt like we were in control of the game because we were getting out played, out coached whatever you say it never felt like we were in control of the game. I thought Miami was in control of the game and at the end of the day we need to make more plays on offense, defense and they made more than we did and that is why we won.'

Marker Rex Ryan: Landry hit was 'dirty' and 'unnecessary' [1:54 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '“Did he target? Did he launch? Yeah, he did all those, check every box you want,’’ Ryan said. “Was it a dirty hit? Yeah. It was unnecessary … and unsportsmanlike. I thought the officials got it right; it was unnecessary roughness. A football play, he came in for a crack block, but there was nothing physical about it. I was surprised he did it and I’m absolutely disappointed. Now I have a player who’s in jeopardy. I don’t understand it.’’'

Marker Bills were beaten on both sides up front [1:53 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'More disturbing to Rex Ryan, I’m sure, was the way his defense was pushed around by the Dolphins offensive line.

Marker Bills’ Rex Ryan upset with hit on Aaron Williams during Miami loss [1:49 AM]
Batavia Daily News reports: '“A head or neck injury is as severe of an injury as you can get. He’ll never hit the field if he wasn’t cleared by professionals,” Ryan said.'

Marker Gase won't ask Landry to change the way he plays after dangerous high hit [1:48 AM]
Miami Herald reports: '"I know the way Jarvis plays, it's going to be aggressive, it's going to be intense," Gase added. "For anybody to kind of start thinking, 'dirty play,' and things like that, I've been around the guys for less than a year. I haven't seen that from him. I've see a guy who when we coach him up on things, tries to do things the right way."'

Marker Dolphins acknowledge Landry's hit was too high, but say it wasn't dirty [1:47 AM]
South Florida Sun Sentinel reports: '"It was a good call, it was a penalty," Christensen said. "We can't go high. The league is emphasizing that." But Gase said it wasn't a dirty play.

Marker Ryan's Bills bullied at line of scrimmage by Miami [1:45 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: '"We got out-physicaled on both sides of the ball, which is rare for us, but it happened," Ryan said. "Obviously, we got outplayed, we got outcoached, we got out-everything'd. They were a more physical team today, there's no doubt about that. They controlled the game and that's why they won the game."'

Marker First-round pick Lawson finally debuts for Bills [1:44 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: '"I thought I had him," Lawson said. "It's going to come. Just be patient. I was kind of anxious at first, so I just had to settle down. I was just trying to stay focused and stay calm."'

Marker Rex Ryan: Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry should've been tossed [1:43 AM]
ESPN reports: '"Yeah, it was totally unnecessary," Ryan said Monday. "Did [Landry] target, did he launch? Yeah, he did all those. You can check every box you want. Was it a dirty hit? Yeah. It was unnecessary. And as I see it, it was unsportsmanlike."'

Marker Bills threw me some curve balls [1:42 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'The biggest problem with this loss is that it made me immediately think the Bills will be 4-5 after the next two games. I didn't think this was a lock it in win like San Francisco the week before but its a game I thought the Bills should be able to get and was one of those wins in the "how do I get them to 10 victories" discussion.'

Marker A Terrible Loss [1:41 AM]
Bills Daily reports: Well, THAT happened. It’s never easy to see the Bills get dominated by an opponent, but it wasn’t the first time it happened and it won’t be the last. As a fan it does shake you back to reality from the snuggly warmth of a four game winning streak. I’ve enjoyed Buffalo’s streak, but I was wary that it could come to a sudden end, and Sunday in Miami was that end.
