Marker Bills can’t let time be on Rodgers’ side [1:59 AM]

Marker Matthews looms large on Packers’ defense [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“It kind of depends on the situation for us, but we have to have a plan for him, obviously,” Bills offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett said. “He moves around all over the place … he’ll line up as an end, as a Sam,” strong-side linebacker, “a Mike,” middle linebacker, “and a Will,” weak-side linebacker.

Marker Bills brace to host Rodgers, high-scoring Packers [1:54 AM]
AP reports: '"It's not going to be a situation where it's too big for us, or we'll be intimidated," Williams said, noting the Bills also play New England's Tom Brady twice a year. "Big challenge. But are we going to get caught up in the 'who's who' deal? I don't think so."'

Marker Scouting Report: Packers at Bills [1:51 AM] reports: 'There’s no question Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is playing at an elite level right now, and Green Bay is sure to get their share of points.

Green Bay is 11th in the NFL in red zone touchdown efficiency (59.3%).'

Marker Playoffs on line in home finale, and 5 things to watch in Bills' Week 15 game against Packers [7:45 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'The Bills lost their composure against the Broncos. Their 11 penalties played a part in chipping away at any chance Buffalo had of escaping Denver with a win.

Marker Bills’ Hughes says he’s learned his lesson after costly penalties [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“Absolutely. You’ve got to walk away,” Hughes said, referring to his conversation with officials that got him penalized in the first place. “Given the importance of the games in December, I’ve learned from my mistakes. As a team, we’ve kind of learned from my mistakes. You don’t want to be that guy that kind of … eggs anything on, because at the end of the day, it hurts us as a team, so I think that’s really our main focal point is just getting better and smarter.”'

Marker Packers’ Starks raises his game, not his voice [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“James, you said you were excited about playing at home,” the reporter said. “How will we know when you’re excited?” The media people around his locker laughed. Low key? It was a gross understatement. But it was a valid question. How would they know he was cranked up about anything given his quiet demeanor? The guy has barely made a peep since he arrived in Green Bay as a sixth-round pick in 2010.'

Marker Injuries behind him, Tretter finds a place with Packers [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“Sometimes that’s how it goes,” he said. “You have to bounce back and just continue to grind away, continue to work hard and do what you’re supposed to be doing – always be prepared for whatever the team needs you to do. As long as you work hard good things will happen.”'

Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"We can't do that," Hughes said. "If we want to be a playoff team, those are things we can't have done. You just take a look at the other side of the ball, how composed they kept themselves. They look like a playoff team. I didn't. I have to make sure I get that corrected in a way it doesn't hurt us in the future."'

"Could you have gotten a receiver by not moving? That would have been Odell Beckham. You could have got Odell Beckham and given up nothing. That looks pretty good now to get Beckham."'
