Marker Report card [1:40 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Coming off such a solid victory in Miami, back home in the place where they once actually had a home-field advantage, the Bills were simply atrocious and they blew a chance to get to 3-1. There was nothing positive to take from this debacle, just a complete mess in every phase. Rex Ryan's honeymoon is over.'

Marker Bills badly miss LeSean McCoy, Sammy Watkins in loss to Giants [1:39 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'The Bills had no answer. Playing without LeSean McCoy and Sammy Watkins, their top two offensive players, Buffalo struggled to make big plays. As a result, the Giants controlled the clock and didn't have much fear in Tyrod Taylor and the Bills' offense. The Bills' offense finished the first half with just 78 yards and didn't have a single play go for over 30 yards in the game.'

Marker Bills coach Rex Ryan takes dig at reporters, says he's proud of team despite 17 penalties [1:38 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"I don't know," Ryan said. "You guys write the stories, so I guess you'll write it the way you want to write it. The one thing I know for a fact is we've got heart. The discipline thing, I get it. When you have 17 penalties, that's obviously a sign of a lack of discipline. That's not the real deal, but hey, it's a free country, write what you believe."'

Marker Buffalo Bills RB could reportedly miss a month with new hamstring tear [1:37 AM]

That's why, according to Dan Graziano of ESPN, Coughlin told his players the Bills would beat themselves with penalties. Sure enough, the Bills committed 17 penalties for 135 yards on their way to a 24-10 loss Sunday.'

Marker What Buffalo Bills players are saying about 17 penalties in loss New York Giants [1:35 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'I mean, it's embarrassing. It's embarrassing to go out there and get all those penalties. I mean, it is one after another. Dumb penalties, situations you just have to shut up sometimes. So it's one of those situations we can't afford to do it, and we can't spot teams all those yards, and we just have to be more disciplined. It's very disappointing.'

Marker Giants' Justin Pugh was trying to avoid fine when Bills created 'mayhem' at end of ga [1:34 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"They were saying it was over out there," Pugh said. "On that last drive, their defense was kind of like, when they were getting penalties, they were like, Tthis game is over anyway.' That is kind of how it was. It was kind of crazy out there that last drive. Mayhem. Refs yelling at players, players yelling at refs. I was just sitting back and trying not to get fined $15,000 for something."'

Marker Bills leave fans seeing yellow [1:33 AM]
Niagara Gazette reports: 'Penalties don't necessarily correlate to wins and losses. The Seattle Seahawks, 2013 Super Bowl champions and 2014 runner-up, led the league in penalties taken both those seasons. Still, Ryan's Buffalo Bullies clearly cost themselves a game Sunday, and that's not a luxury a franchise with a 15-year playoff drought can afford.'

Marker Penalties, slow start on offense doom Bills Sunday afternoon [1:32 AM]
Dunkirk Observer reports: 'Over the last 10 games at The Ralph, Buffalo is 5-5. That is unacceptable. Playoff teams win the games they're supposed to, including games against teams under .500, games against divisional opponents and the majority of the eight games they get at their own place. Great teams find ways to win no matter where, or who, they are playing.'

Marker Rex Ryan gets testy on questions about Bills penalties [1:28 AM]
New York Daily News reports: 'Then, in the fourth quarter, with the Giants up 24-10 with 6:22 to go, the Bills seemingly came unglued — helping the Giants eat the clock by committing three personal fouls — one unnecessary roughness penalty (linebacker Preston Brown) and two unsportsmanlike conduct penalties (Brown and Hughes).'

Newark Star Ledger reports: '"Oh, we're over [the line" target="_blank">," Bills safety Corey Graham said. "I mean, it's embarrassing. It is embarrassing to go out there and get all those penalties. I mean it is one after another. Dumb penalties, situations you just jave to shut up sometimes. So it's one of those situations we can't afford to do it, and we can't spot teams all those yards and we just have to be more disciplined. It's very disappointing."'

Marker Bills can't take next step in loss to Giants [1:23 AM]

Against the Giants, they combined for 13 tackles, one for a loss. None of them recorded a sack or a quarterback hit. Hughes also took two personal foul penalties, and Kyle Williams was the culprit on the illegal formation infraction.'

Marker Rex Ryan defends Bills' penalties: Give me a team with some fight any day [1:15 AM]
ESPN reports: '"I get it, no question about it," Ryan said after Sunday's game. "We can focus on the negatives and all that -- and I get it, that's your guys' job -- but you might not understand the game the way I understand [it" target="_blank"> because I've been on the other side. I've been a part of a 20-some-penalty performance by the Ravens, OK? And we went on and we fixed it. We'll fix it here."'

Marker Surprise, surprise: Discipline (and penalties) undo Ryan's Bills [1:13 AM]
The Sporting News reports: 'Another way to phrase “lack of mental focus” for Buffalo: stupidity.

They lost because they just did not play like a particularly smart group.'

WGR-AM reports: 'Buffalo's offense finally began to show signs of life midway through the third quarter as Tyrod Taylor completed two third down passes and got some help from a pass interference penalty to put the team in scoring position. Miscues plagued them again however as a seven yard loss was followed up by missed 30 yard Dan Carpenter field goal to keep the score at 16-3. After the defense came up big, it was the offense again failing to punch it in the end zone on the next possession as a 4th and goal was thwarted at the one yard line.'

Marker A depressing Bills Sunday [1:11 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'So far, we've seen the Bills dominate an Indianapolis team that is no better than average, at least when it plays outside the AFC South. The Bills crushed what looks more and more like a pathetic Dolphins team. But Buffalo was smacked around by New England, the AFC's elite, and played a stinker against a Giants team that is better than the Colts but not at the Patriots level.'
