Marker Spikes, Bills low-key after big victory [9:20 PM]

Marker Patriots numb after stunning loss [4:19 PM]

Marker Backlash [1:20 PM]
Quincy Patriot Ledger reports: 'In fact, the Pats appeared dazed (pregame Novocain for everyone!) in falling behind, 21-0, with 10:24 left in the second quarter. Their new-look secondary was toasted. Their vaunted pass rush was muffled. Their receivers were invisible.

Quincy Patriot Ledger reports: 'Asked if he thought the Pats defensive backfield seemed confused, Moulds (four catches for 81 yards) said: ‘‘At times they did.

They didn't have that guy to do that today and I think it hurt them a little bit.'''

By most assessments, the Patriots were considered the best team in the AFC East, if not the entire AFC. They were the team that embarrassed the Bills twice last season.'

Marker Patriot games [10:17 AM]
CNN/SI reports: 'In some ways, I feel sorry for Milloy. He's furious with me for reporting the tampering story, and I can't repeat what he said to me in a hallway outside the Bills' locker room after Sunday's game against his former club. Suffice it to say he was fairly strident in telling me never to approach him again as long as I dwell on the planet earth, with quite a bit of emphasis.'

Buffalo News reports: 'Was the new defense overhyped? It was better than anyone imagined.'

Marker Adams' 37-yard touchdown gallop provides day's biggest smiles [9:01 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"I'll be honest," said safety Pierson Prioleau. "I didn't know he could move that fast. But I did know he was a fierce competitor. I knew that when there's a play to be made he has the ability to make those plays. So it didn't surprise me that he moved that fast when it was time to make a play."'

Marker Debut of new defense is simply smashing [5:35 AM]
