Tyrod Taylor's late heroics bail out Bills [1:48 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Taylor won it with his legs. He rushed for 76 yards, a new Bills record for a quarterback, and his 22-yard touchdown run, and his 24-yard scramble in a near impossible third-and-23 situation were the plays that gave the Bills a chance. That said, Taylor has to stop playing so awful in the first half of games.'
Bills showed some true resiliency in victory [1:47 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'It's a little unfair to get on Roman's case this week given the fact that he was minus McCoy, Williams, and Sammy Watkins. The Bills offense is in shambles right now, and Roman is scheming with one hand tied behind his back. What's disappointing is that wide receivers Percy Harvin and Robert Woods have been basically non-existent the last two weeks, which only further shines the light on how important Watkins' presence is on the field.'
Report card [1:46 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'The Bills offense was headed for a Blutarsky special in this game, but Tyrod Taylor rescued an improbable victory with some huge plays, and the Bills survived a real scare against the Titans to win their first game in Tennessee. It was ugly, and there are still big issues to fix, but they are 3-2.'
Tyrod Taylor carries Buffalo Bills to win over Titans [1:45 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'The Bills' offense is a mess. Their only possible salvation at this point will come in the form of Sammy Watkins and LeSean McCoy. Both missed their second-straight game Sunday, and the Bills desperately need them back in the lineup. Defenses are stacking the box against a group of running backs that isn't even remotely threatening. Tyrod Taylor has struggled to make defenses pay because nobody can get open and the offensive line isn't giving him much time. This offense simply can't function without its two best players.'
Why Buffalo Bills defense didn't unravel after bad penalty late against Titans [1:44 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"The difference was we knew we were going to get penalties so we just knew we had to stand up and play regardless," linebacker Nigel Bradham said. "If you get a penalty or not, either way, you have to get off the field no matter what. It doesn't matter what happens, you have to get off the field. That's how we felt and that's the attitude we took."'
Bills' ugly win over Titans was exactly what Rex Ryan, Boobie Dixon envisioned [1:43 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"Honestly, that's exactly what I envisioned," Dixon insisted. "A grind-type game with a 'W.' I told some of the guys earlier in the week, they was like, 'Boobie, what do you think? 100 yards? 200 yards?' I said, 'Whatever it takes, man, I just want to win. I just want to be able to step in there and say I got the job done and my team won.' That's what happened."'
What Rex Ryan, Bills players are saying about Tyrod Taylor's third-and-28 run against Titans [1:42 AM]

Rex Ryan breaks 'Yes Sir' wristband on first play of Bills' win over Titans [1:40 AM]

Rex Ryan impressed by Bills fans traveling to Nashville for win over Titans [1:39 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"You couldn't get into a restaurant yesterday without seeing Bills fans. It was awesome," Ryan said. "I guess something I'm learning, I had no idea that Bills fans travel the way they do. Miami was packed. Here it was unbelievable. That's such a great feeling to know that your guys are with you, your fans travel so well. I also love the fact that they aren't off this boat. They never looked to jump and we gave them some reason to, but they're sitting right there. That's a great feeling."'
On to Cincinnati [1:38 AM]
Niagara Gazette reports: 'Somehow, it's both tough to credit and tough to blame the Bills for how Sunday's stinker played out. Going into the season this was a game many chalked up as a win, but injuries have hamstrung the Buffalo offense. Adding that Tennessee was coming off a bye with an extra week to prepare, it shouldn't be a surprise the Titans manhandled Buffalo's offense through three quarters.'

Two plays later, Taylor would connect with wide receiver, Chris Hogan on a 46-yard pass to get the Bills inside the Titans' 10-yard line. Three plays later, Taylor and Hogan would hook up again for a two-yard touchdown pass to tie the game at 13. Dan Carpenter's extra-point would give the Bills a 14-13 lead.'

Bills-Titans Arrow Up/Arrow Down [1:28 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Taylor wasn’t very good in the passing game for most of the contest. He was 5-for-11 for 36 yards in the first half. The offense simply couldn’t do anything in the first 30-minutes. But there was something else that wasn’t happening in the first half: Taylor running the ball. The Bills QB only ran one time for two yards before halftime. It wasn’t until the Bills were down 10-0 when Taylor decided to use his legs to take control, and ultimately change the game. He ran 7 times for 74 yards in the second half, but it was really the big plays that were the difference.'
7 observations from Bills - Titans [1:27 AM]

Torrid Tyrod Finish Saves Bills [1:26 AM]
WROC-TV reports: 'As mentioned, the jury is still out on him, but you have to love his moxie. And you would think that his play-making opportunities will improve if the Bills can get Sammy Watkins and LeSean McCoy healthy. McCoy may not be back until following the bye week in November. But there’s a chance Watkins and backup running back Karlos Williams could return next Sunday at the Ralph, which would be a big boost because Buffalo is going to need them as they attempt to upset the high-scoring Cincinnati Bengals, who staged a furious second-half comeback to edge Seattle and improve to 5-0.'
Bills Rally For 14-13 Win In Tennessee [1:24 AM]
Bills Daily reports: 'This one was ugly but there was a lot to learn about this team from it. Taylor was having his worst game of the year but showed toughness and gutted it out. He then made plays down the stretch when he had to for his first comeback win of his career. Let's hope he has many more in him. If the Bills are going to be a playoff team they have to win games even when they struggle against inferior opponents. There is a lot not to like in this game but the W is what is most important and they showed some moxy in getting it.'
Solid Defensive Effort Kept The Bills In The Game [1:23 AM]
Bills Daily reports: 'Rex Ryan wanted to get the penalties under control and the team jumped offsides on the opening kickoff. They were only slightly better as they were penalized 7 times for 62 yards. The team came out flat and he takes some heat for that.'
Rex Ryan's undisciplined Bills beat Titans with attitude [1:22 AM]
NFL.com reports: 'Tyrod Taylor did not have a great game statistically, but emotionally, his ability to come back from a serious hit, miss one play and then nail Chris Hogan on a 46-yard rope to set up the game-winning touchdown. On that drive, he also caught a trick pass in traffic. It's unbelievable how criminally overlooked Taylor was over the years given the absolute lack of quality starters.'

BuffaloBills.com reports: '“We just tried to stay focused and tried to stick with what we wanted to do, and not give them any big plays and things like that,” said Graham. “You’ll have ups and downs out there, obviously, some penalties and things that didn’t go our way. You just got to hold your composure. You can’t lose it. You can’t find a way to give them extra yards and when it’s all said and done, you have to make plays and win the game.”'
