Marker Fitzgerald quieted again in return to Buffalo [10:02 AM]
Olean Times Herald reports: '“A lot of it was self-inflicted,” he said following Arizona’s 33-18 loss to the Bills on Sunday at New Era Field, “but you have to tip your hat. Those guys had their backs against the wall. Start the season 0-2; a lot of chatter around the league about them, and those guys responded. They were the better team today.”

Marker Bills get ‘D-best’ of Cards [10:01 AM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer, who wasn’t intercepted in the first two games this season, was picked off in Arizona’s final four possessions.

Safety Corey Graham and cornerback Corey White also had picks.'

Marker Defense the real story in Bills' stunning victory [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Facing one of the more talented and explosive offenses in the NFL, the Bills gave an inspired showing highlighted by the first four interceptions of the season by Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer. Buffalo's defenders were physically dominant, stuffing the run, sacking Palmer five times and hitting him nine times.'

Marker Bills secondary rebounds from pitiful performance against the Jets with 4 picks of Carson Palmer [1:58 AM]

Marker You can bet Bills fans still nervous despite 15-point lead and three minutes to go [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"Sometimes you look at being an underdog as a slap in the face, especially at home," Thomas said, referring to how he and his teammates viewed spreads back in his day. "We're fired up. We're upset at the world. Our reporters are getting on us. Our fans are getting on us.'

Marker Notebook: Kyle Williams turns in vintage performance; Aaron Williams savors first career TD, Sammy W [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“If it takes me getting my head beat in by three guys in the middle and we walk off the field like that, I’ll do it every week,” Williams said. “I played well enough for us to win, and that’s what I like.”'

Marker A nice win, but the Bills -- and Tyrod Taylor -- have a long way to go [1:55 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'OK, they won. It was a dream game for Ryan. People were writing his team off. He had his second terrific defensive game out of three, which reminds you that he knows a thing or two about defense. It was a victory right out of the old school handbook -- run and stop the run, get after the opposing quarterback and play good special teams.'

Marker Bills’ game plan plays to Taylor’s strengths [1:54 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The Bills are the only team in the NFL with a quarterback who plays with the elusiveness of Taylor. They rolled the dice with him when they signed him to a six-year contract extension worth $90 million. The contract includes escape clauses, but they also took a gamble on his health.'

Marker Mark Gaughan's Matchup Winners: Ryan & Co. take stretch out of Arians offense [1:53 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The Bills’ defensive tackle was all over the field and abused just about every lineman Arizona threw on the field.'

Marker Mark Gaughan's 10 Plays That Shaped the Game: Cards pay for failing to contain Tyrod [1:52 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Cardinals edge rusher Markus Golden rushed up-field to Taylor’s right and easily was shoved 5 yards behind the quarterback by Jordan Mills. Cardinals linebacker Kevin Minter, doing an Aaron Maybin impersonation (aka going 100 mph in the wrong direction), flew beyond the pocket on a blitz. The right side of the field was wide open and Taylor cruised into the end zone.'

Marker Vic Carucci's Take Five: Bills applied necessary heat, ran with authority [1:51 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The Bills hadn't shown that look in either if their previous two games, and Palmer and the Cardinals weren't ready for it.'

Marker Bucky Gleason's Hot Read: Bills reveal what had been missing [1:50 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The Cardinals were precisely the team the Bills needed to play if they wanted to pull themselves from misery. Super Bowl contenders? The Bills made them look like … they made them look the Bills did in the first two games. Buffalo trampled over Arizona in a 33-18 victory that gave their sun-soaked crowed reasons for optimism.'

Marker Jerry Sullivan's Hot Read: Maybe the Bills should fire someone every week [1:49 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'With Lynn using a more streamlined playbook and running plays at a quicker tempo, the Bills got their running game going, piling up 200 rushing yards and three touchdowns against an Arizona team that had shut down the Buccaneer the week before.'

Marker Jay Skurski's Hot Read: Bills fans can put the pitchforks away for at least a week [1:48 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The defense, playing without starting cornerback Ronald Darby, largely contained a potent Cardinals’ passing attack, with Stephon Gilmore recording two interceptions, and Corey White and Corey Graham adding one more each. The defense won’t come up with four interceptions every week, but it’s exactly what they needed for this one.'

Marker Mark Gaughan's Hot Read: With Lynn pushing right buttons, Bills get their mojo back [1:47 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'LeSean McCoy looked like his Pro Bowl self. With Lynn mixing the run and the pass to keep Arizona off balance, McCoy gashed a Cardinals defense that ranked sixth in the NFL against the run last season.'

Marker Insta-Graham: Only a fool would've counted out Bills against Cardinals [1:46 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Buffalo's defense was wicked at times. Arizona didn't earn a first down on its first five possessions. By the time Buffalo scored 17 points (4:35 into the second quarter), Arizona's offense traveled 7 yards.'

Marker Vic Carucci's Points After: Bills 33, Cardinals 18 [1:45 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The offense made Rex Ryan look like a genius for replacing offensive coordinator Greg Roman with Anthony Lynn after only two games. The players who helped persuade ownership to get aboard with the idea, and the owners themselves, also come out of this looking good. The defense made Ryan's declaration earlier in this week about the coaching prowess of his twin brother, Rob, spot on.'

Marker Jay Skurski's Report Card [1:44 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The numbers are eye-popping – 32 carries, 208 yards, 6.5 yards per rush.'

Marker Fourth quarter analysis: Bills put away Cards and keep season alive [1:43 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Stephon Gilmore had two picks while Corey Graham and Corey White had one while the Bills sacked Palmer four times in the game. Graham's interception put the Bills on their own 1-yard line, which led to a safety that made things interesting – especially after John Brown returned the free kick to the Bills' 14-yard line – but Gilmore came up with another interception to put the game away.'

Marker Third quarter analysis: Bills break game open after Cardinals' miserable fourth down [1:42 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'So Chandler Catanzaro went out for a field goal attempt, but a high snap went through holder Drew Butler’s hands. Aaron Williams recovered the ball and took it 53 yards for a touchdown to make it 30-7 Bills. It was the Cardinals’ first turnover of the season.'

Marker Second quarter analysis: Jerry Hughes penalty leads to Cardinals' first score [1:41 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The Bills would've gotten the ball back with about 7 minutes left in the quarter. Instead, the Cardinals drove down and scored on a David Johnson run with only 1:05 remaining before halftime. That cut the Bills' lead to 17-7.'

Marker First quarter analysis: Bills defense absolutely dominant as team jumps out to 10-0 lead [1:40 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The Bills had fourth-and-goal from the 1-yard line with the score still 0-0. Fans booed as Rex Ryan sent out the field goal team, but Dan Carpenter’s 19-yarder gave the Bills the lead.'

Marker All Bills stand during national anthem vs. Cardinals [1:39 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"I’d be ok with — ok, my feeling is, I think the National Football League gives you an incredible platform as it is," Ryan said. "And there’s guys in this room right now, if some of our players wanted to have a platform to speak with the media, then we’d allow that. There’s no doubt about it. I think, you know my personal opinion, I think the national anthem is an opportunity for us as a football team to show respect to the men and women that serve our country and have served our country. And I think that’s how I would approach it."'

Marker Sammy Watkins, Greg Salas, Ronald Darby all out against Cardinals [1:38 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Cornerback Ronald Darby, who suffered a hamstring injury in Week Two against the Jets and was limited in practice during the week, will also sit out. Other inactives include: left tackle Cordy Glenn (ankle), safety Colt Anderson (foot), quarterback Cardale Jones and center Patrick Lewis.'

Marker Bills-Cardinals postgame transcripts of Rex Ryan, Tyrod Taylor, LeSean McCoy, Bruce Arians, Carson P [1:37 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'We know we only have one win and obviously we’ve got a huge task in front of us but we’re going to enjoy this one because we’re going to enjoy the fact that we know what everybody thought of our football team and we knew that we were a better football team than that.'

Marker Bills pull off shocker and deck Cards 33-18 [1:36 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Rather than getting pummeled by the Arizona Cardinals as everyone expected, the exact opposite transpired as the Bills rolled to a stunning 33-18 victory in front of an electric, sun-drenched sellout crowd.'

Marker Sheriff’s Office reports one arrest at Bills game [1:35 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'A fan was arrested on a larceny charge for trying to shoplift from the Bills Store, the Sheriff’s spokesman, Scott Zylka, said. He did not have details on what the fan had attempted to steal.'
