Marker In Lewis' absence, Ravens turn toward eager Taylor [1:08 PM]
AP reports: 'The Bills (1-4), who squeezed out their first victory of the season last week against winless Miami, won't treat Taylor any differently than they would Lewis. "It's like Miami.

Marker Schobel faces biggest challenge [8:51 AM]

It's going to be a challenge, but I've got something to prove."'

Marker Bledsoe shows Bills that he can run from the rush [5:07 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"When our guys protect me like they did the last game, it makes my job much easier," he said.

I can actually scan the field and find my guys and it allows me to play more effectively and efficiently.'

Allentown Morning Call reports: '''People would say to me, 'You can't do this, you can't do that,' and I would say, 'Yeah, just watch me,''' Reed told Dale Weiss' American history class.

The key is that I had good parents who taught me to make the right choices, do the right things. If you listen to those who care about you, the sky's the limit.'''

Marker Bills Are Fortunate to Have Two Quality Backs [12:27 PM] reports: 'Drew Bledsoe has struggled a bit the past few seasons but he's starting to look a lot better. He's only as good as the people around him. Back when he was in New England he had a very good offensive line. He played with those guys a long time and the Bills line is still trying to mesh together. When you play with people for a long time you get a feel of what they're going to do on the field. That's how it was when I player with Jim Kelly, Thurman Thomas and all of those guys. You get to a point where you can almost read each other's minds and I'm not sure the Bills have that right now. It will come, but those things take time.'

Marker Where are they now? - Bill Enyart [11:35 AM]
Medford Mail Tribune reports: 'Yearning to return to the West Coast and believing he’d be better suited to playing linebacker, Enyart asked for a trade and was dealt to Oakland for the 1971 season. He was on his way to winning a starting defensive spot — he had nine unassisted tackles in the first half of an exhibition game — but a block to the knees against the New York Jets in the preseason wound up ending his career. He tried to come back a year later with Green Bay but didn’t pass the team physical.'

Carroll County Times reports: 'The Bills have lost games to Jacksonville (4-2), Oakland (2-4), New England (5-0) and the New York Jets (5-0). Three of those losses were by a total of eight points. "They are a good football team," said Ravens coach Brian Billick, whose team is favored by six points in Sunday's game at M&T Bank Stadium. "To sit here and say that as a coach, I sound like any other coach trying to overemphasize how good the opponent is. That's not the case. All you have to do is look at the combined record of who they lost to, how close those games were."'

Marker Ravens will be in a rush to put pressure on Bledsoe [5:04 AM]
Baltimore Sun reports: 'At 6 feet 5 and 238 pounds, Bledsoe constantly waits and waits until either a receiver comes open or he's knocked to the ground. "We don't like playing against the Michael Vick or Donovan McNabb," linebacker Terrell Suggs said. "A stationary quarterback, you know where he is going to be and you know how you can get there."'
