Marker Bills' Clemson connection bites Dolphins [1:21 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: 'The Bills also received a big boost from their special teams, which produced a touchdown on C.J. Spiller's 102-yard kickoff return, five field goals by Dan Carpenter and a blocked punt that set up a score.'

Marker Bills-Dolphins: What we learned [1:20 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: 'They appear to have discovered a winning formula. They're not asking second-year quarterback EJ Manuel to do too much. Just manage the game, make a play here and there and not make costly mistakes. They're relying on their defense, their special teams and their run game. So far, so good.'

Marker Ride The Wave [1:19 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Coupled with a surprising week one road win in Chicago, the great news about the long term future of the team being secured put fans at an almost unprecedented level of joy. I say almost, because some would balk at putting this past week ahead of any of the four Super Bowl seasons. I don't really think the two compare. The best teams we ever saw produced a different feeling than the relief that brought on the emotional outpouring fans experienced this week.'

Marker Bills pay tribute to Ralph Wilson with a win he would have loved [1:18 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'The Bills defense should get the lion's share of the credit, shutting down a Miami team that put up 33 points in a week one victory over the New England Patriots. The Dolphins were suffocated in the first half gaining a total of just 62 yards on 26 plays. Miami never got beyond its own 39 yard line over the game's first 30 minutes. They didn't cross into Bills territory until just over two minutes into the third quarter.'

Marker Observations: Bills 29 - Dolphins 10 [1:17 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Did Sunday look familiar to you on offense? That’s probably because it was the same game plan the Bills had for quarterback EJ Manuel and how to attack the Chicago Bears. Buffalo simplified the game enough for Manuel over the last two weeks to the point that the second-year quarterback always looked comfortable when he dropped back to pass. He didn’t have to win them the game, nor did they want him to.'

Marker Bills Manhandle Dolphins 29-10 [1:16 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Following the Miami score, Buffalo's offense did not miss a beat after the Miami touchdown as CJ Spiller finally broke loose on offense scampering for a 47 yard run. His dash set up a 12 yard EJ Manuel touchdown pass to Sammy Watkins who continued his coming out party with his first career score. After the Bills scoring drive, Buffalo's defense got their first stop of the second half. The offense would then move the ball fluently down the field but again, were stopped short in the red zone and had to settle for 4th Dan Carpenter field goal of the day.'

Marker Bills honor Wilson with ceremony, 2-0 start to season [1:15 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'The Bills defense, armed by the return of the once suspended linebacker Nigel Bradham, frustrated Miami quarterback Ryan Tannehill and the offensive attack throughout the afternoon. After just one half, the Dolphins were limited to zero points and just 62 yards on 26 plays.'

Marker Bills Answer Bell in Home Opener to Remember [1:14 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: '-Another week, another solid performance by the Buffalo defense. The unit was dominant in the first half holding the Dolphins to only 62 yards and six first downs. Miami found some room on the outside in the second half and benefitted by speeding up the tempo but the Bills were able to close the door and make the stops down the stretch. The Bills finished with four sacks and were able to pressure Tannehill throughout. So far, so good for Jim Schwartz and company. The Bills have surrendered 30 points total in their two wins.'

Marker Bills fans energized over winning streak [1:13 AM]
WIVB-TV reports: '“$350 on Stub Hub. Totally worth it,” said Chris Johnson from Burlington, Ontario. ”We paid $1,250 for four tickets. They won, it was worth it. We would have paid $2,000."'

Marker Bills ride emotion into first place [1:12 AM]
WROC-TV reports: 'he Bills clearly were sky-high, particularly Kyle Williams, the ninth-year defensive tackle, who’s the longest tenured player on the roster and one of the few current players who had a chance to get to know Wilson, before he became ill. “There’s no question, we were riding that emotion,’’ Williams said. “There’s no question that Mr. Wilson’s presence was in this stadium today, just as it was every game since he brought this team to Buffalo.”'

Marker Immediate Reactions: Buffalo Bills 29, Miami Dolphins 10 [1:11 AM] reports: 'Under the now golden letters spelling out R-A-L-P-H C. W-I-L-S-O-N J-R on the Wall of Fame, the Buffalo Bills played a complete, three-phase effort that would’ve made the Golden Era owner proud.'

Marker Bills Get Electric 29-10 Win Over Miami [1:10 AM]
Bills Daily reports: 'Everything was setup for a perfect day at Ralph Wilson Stadium. While the NFL has had a horrid week there was one little area of the huge league map that was having a fantastic week. The future was secured by the Pegulas and they were honoring the patriach of the franchise in what was a playoff atmosphere. The players knew it was a special day and were not going to let the euphoria of the past 10 days come to a sudden halt. This Bills team seems very focused as it would have been easy to let outside excitement allow them to letdown. They were ready to play and because that they are one of the early season surprise teams in the league after two short weeks.'

Marker Special Teams Were Real Special [1:09 AM]
Bills Daily reports: 'Doug Marrone I agreed with his decision to punt late in the first half from the Dolphins 40 on a 4th and 4 play. The defense was dominating at the time and pin them back. Marrone had his team focused and prepared and the dominated from the start.'

Marker Bills never trail in workmanlike 29-10 win over Dolphins [1:08 AM] reports: 'It wasn’t until the first drive of the second half that Miami put points on the board thanks to a 34-yard field goal by Caleb Sturgis (9-3). But Buffalo’s kick return unit then busted a big play as C.J. Spiller with some help from his blockers went 102 yards for a touchdown to put the Bills up by 13 (16-3).'

Marker Bills Clemson connection put the Dolphins game away [1:07 AM] reports: '“Great game from Sammy,” said EJ Manuel. “It happened that a lot of calls and progressions had him getting the ball and coming open. He did a great job running the route and getting open. I’m very proud of him. That last touchdown, he got in there for us on the third down. We call that a double whammy when you get a first down and get a touchdown in the red zone. That was huge for us, and that’s what I expect from him. Great job right after the catch.”'

Marker Special teams stands out [1:06 AM] reports: '“Pretty much the coaches came up to me and asked me if I was to do it, would I feel comfortable and I told them I’d be fine,” said Spiller. “It was something that I’ve done my whole life and hadn’t done in a while. I felt very comfortable, just having to get back into the groove of catching it, making great decisions. There’s really no magic about being a kick returner. You have to be patient but as soon as you see it, you’ve got to go full speed.”'

Marker Ralph Wilson Jr. honored in emotional pregame ceremony [1:05 AM] reports: '“Mr. Wilson was a true gentleman in every sense of the word,” said Murphy. “He was a man of high ideals who set a high standard for himself and those he worked with. Today, on behalf of the Buffalo Bills, we would like to forever honor his legacy by turning the letters of his name gold on the prestigious wall of fame, a symbol of the standard he set for all of us.”'

Marker It’s time to live it up, Bills fans: you’ve earned it [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'When you consider the dramatic confluence of events, it could be the biggest and most anticipated home opener in team history. I’ll defer to people who were on hand for Kelly’s first game in 1986, or for the first home game in the inaugural AFL season in 1960. But it should be one wild afternoon.'

Marker The next generation of Bills fans [1:55 AM]

Marker A home opener like no other [1:52 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'All this would normally be enough to energize the home squad but for reasons that are difficult to explain — perhaps Ralph won a poker hand with St. Peter — the Bills are experiencing a seismic shift in karma these days.'

Marker 3 questions heading into the Bills home opener [1:51 AM]

Marker Kelly Tough: The story of a Buffalo icon [1:50 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"Kelly Tough, to me at the beginning, was being physically strong, being able to bounce back from injury, being able to bounce back from something that some people may not be able to; just tough it out," Kelly explained. "But I found out Kelly Tough is more than just the physical part, it's the mental part. Being mentally tough is probably just as important, if not more important."'

Marker Jim Kelly weighing risk of possible surgery [1:49 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Kelly said there's still a spot that his doctors are concerned about, and they are considering performing Gamma Knife radiosurgery to eradicate it. The problem, though, is there's significant risk involved, and Kelly is unsure whether he's willing to take it.'

Marker Bills fans have something to shout about [1:48 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'For now, upgrades in the current stadium and investment by the Pegulas in the franchise itself, bode well for the team, the city and fans throughout western New York. With the help of private developers and Gov. Andrew Cuomo's "Buffalo billion," the city is on the upswing. For fans, the Bills can't emulate that surge soon enough.'

Marker Bills offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett slowly opening things up for EJ Manuel [1:47 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"I'll be truthful," Hackett said on a blustery Friday morning at One Bills Drive. "Sadly, that's more (criticism) than I wish it would be. You want a guy to develop, you want a guy feel supported, you want him to be successful, and then he has to deal with all that other stuff. It sucks, but people want him to be great. It's just because they love the Bills and they want him to be great. It's just unfortunate that he has to deal with that right now. That's why a lot of people don't play quarterback.'

Marker Fans, players excited to be back at Ralph Wilson Stadium [1:46 AM]
Dunkirk Observer reports: 'With all that's happened this past week with the Buffalo Bills, from their thrilling overtime win against the Chicago Bears in Week 1, to the sale of the team to Terry and Kim Pegula, it's no wonder tickets to the home-opener against the Miami Dolphins today are being sold for as much as they are.'
