Buffalo Bills News - September 26, 2016

Marker Bills defense comes up big [1:09 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Give Rex and the defensive staff credit for coming up with a new look to baffle Palmer and company. The Bills used a seven defensive back personnel grouping a number of times in the game and it derailed Arizona’s passing game. They also did it while playing without starting cornerback Ronald Darby who was inactive due to a hamstring injury. At halftime, the big three passing weapons of Larry Fitzgerald, Michael Floyd and John Brown had combined for just three catches on 12 targets for 20 yards.'

Marker That's what's called a team win [1:08 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Arizona didn’t get its first first down until there was 9:25 left in the second quarter. At that point the total yardage was 186-7. By the end of the game, Arizona outgained Buffalo 348-296, but the Bills only turned the ball over once while Arizona had four picks against and a botched field goal attempt that was ruled a lost fumble by Drew Butler.'

Marker Bills-Cards: Arrow Up/Arrow Down [1:07 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Regardless if it was the right move to fire Greg Roman, and regardless if he's the right head coach long-term, Ryan got his team ready to play - and play well - after all that happened since last Friday. A lot of distractions. A lot of pressure. A very good opponent and staring 0-3 in the face. It would have been easy to pack up the helmets and shoulder pads and go home. Yet, Rex's Bills not only kept it together, they rallied behind one another for a big victory.'

Marker Bills offense, defense find its groove in 33-18 win over Cardinals [1:06 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'Despite not having cornerback Ronald Darby in the lineup due to a hamstring injury, the Bills secondary remained strong, intercepting Palmer four times in the final six minutes as the Cardinals threatened to rally down 33-18 late in the game.'

Marker Oh, Rex: Bills coach brings up Belichick following Week 3 win [1:05 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'The Bills just collected a 33-18 win over the Arizona Cardinals at New Era Field, but then near the end of the conversation during his post-game press conference, the Bills head coach brought up the idea of his Week Four opponents -- the New England Patriots -- playing wide receiver Julian Edelman at quarterback.'

Marker 7 observations from Bills - Cardinals (9/25/16) [1:04 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'Hughes helped win the Bills the game against Arizona. The penalty was an awful one to take, but, it was merely an exception to the following rule: Hughes dominated the Arizona offensive line.'

Marker Rex’s Bills keep hope alive in upset of Arizona [1:03 AM]
WROC-TV reports: 'I’m still not sold on Rex Ryan, but on this day I have to give him his due. He totally out-coached counterpart Bruce Arians while guiding a team without three of its best players – Sammy Watkins, Cordy Glenn and Ronald Darby, each of whom watched the game in street clothes because of injury.'

Marker Bills Pull Off The Upset With 33-18 Win [1:02 AM]
Bills Daily reports: 'A huge win in a desperate situation with several big players being sidelined allows the fans to feel good for a week.'

Marker Bills fast start, solid defense grounds Cards in 33-18 win [1:01 AM] reports: 'Buffalo’s running game resurfaced in a big way as they rolled up better than 200 yards on the ground under new offensive coordinator Anthony Lynn. LeSean McCoy rushed more over 100 yards and had a pair of touchdowns in the victory, while Taylor rushed for 79.'

Marker LeSean McCoy leads run game resurgence [1:00 AM] reports: '“Yeah a couple of oddball formations,” said Tyrod Taylor. “Definitely (makes it harder) for the defense. They can’t (hide things) as easy bringing in different personnel, lined up in different formations. It just keeps them unbalanced. But at the same time we’re calling our regular offense, we’re just moving out of different formations. But I think Coach Lynn did a good job of that mixing it in early against their defense.”'

Marker Bills 'D' goes with speed on third down [12:59 AM] reports: '“This package was totally different,” Bills safety Corey Graham said. “It was something that nobody had seen from us. Rex, Rob and Dennis Thurman did a great job putting together something that nobody expects because you’ve never seen us do it. And it worked out for us. It was a good package, good play-calling and we tip our caps to the coaches.”'

Marker What they're saying: Bills players discuss the win over Arizona [12:58 AM] reports: 'Yeah, oh no it’s tempo. I knew we would run the ball well because he’s big on that. The urgency to get in and out of the huddle. Get up on the ball. There were some times where we would snap the ball when they were just kind of lining up and that helps out. Defenses can’t structure their blitzes how they want. They can’t see what formations we’re in so they can line up everything and get it correct. You know, cause defense, all that is, is they just react to the offense. Okay the ball goes left, they react to the left. So when they line up they try to find out who’s who, they have their keys, when you snap the ball fast it’s kinda hard to get everything together. I don’t know if you noticed, but we ran some quick two-minute type of plays early in the game, so there is a lot of different things to prepare for.'

Marker Bills to be without Darby, Salas and Watkins [12:57 AM] reports: '“I’m just going to go in there and expect to play my game,” said Robert Woods. “I always approach the game like I’m a number one receiver. I’ve just got to step up and make plays. I may get a few more targets, so I’ve got to be an open target.”'

Marker Can new offensive coordinator change Bills’ course? [9:43 AM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'However, this afternoon, Ryan and his Bills need to be careful what they wished for.'

Marker Report says Sammy Watkins out Sunday against Arizona [9:00 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The weather shouldn't be a factor Sunday in New Era Field, which means Dan Carpenter can handle kickoff duties. Scratching Gay would allow the Bills to activate rookie running back Jonathan Williams for the first time this season, which could provide a boost to the running game.'

Marker Pregame primer: Everything you need to know for Bills-Cardinals, plus five things to watch for [8:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Ryan is clearly desperate for a win. Firing offensive coordinator Greg Roman after two games and replacing him with Anthony Lynn certainly looks like a panic move. If the losses continue to mount, the head coach might be the next position that gets changed. Players have said all the expected things about having Ryan's back, but the best way they can show that is with an inspired effort against a powerful Cardinals team.'

Marker Bills’ change of coordinators eliminates one more excuse [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Now Anthony Lynn gets his turn as coordinator, while saddled with Roman’s offensive system. Lynn will streamline the offense in an attempt to get more out of this wondrous collection of offensive talent. He said his head is spinning. It ought to be. Lynn has never been a coordinator in the NFL or called plays in a regular-season game.'

Marker Larry Fitzgerald continues to forge a lasting legacy as his clock winds down [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Fitzgerald is playing far younger than 33 years old. He caught a career-high 109 passes last year, and entered Week Three third in the NFL with 14 catches for 162 yards. His three receiving touchdowns -- 99th, 100th and 101st of his career -- are tied for the league lead.'

Marker Bills meet Cardinals with season already on the brink [1:57 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Yeah, they really do. Having dropped their first two games to the Ravens and the Jets, the Bills are already in emergency mode in the infancy of the 2016 season. Hard to believe that summer just officially ended a few days ago, and the Bills are on the brink of irrelevancy, though one can argue that over the past 16 years, irrelevancy is a perpetual state of being for this franchise.'

Marker Buffalo Bills vs. Arizona Cardinals preview and prediction [1:56 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'All eyes will be on Lynn as he takes over the play-calling duties, and first and foremost on everyone’s mind is can he get the passing game working? Tyrod Taylor is still struggling with the same things he did last year, and most prominently, his continued inability to get Sammy Watkins consistently involved.'

Marker Q&A: Who are the real Cardinals?, more [1:54 AM]
Batavia Daily News reports: 'They are a team that thrives on momentum and playing from ahead, they struggle when they get themselves in an early hole and tend to press as a group trying to make plays.  If they get out fast and early, it could be a long day for the Buffalo Bills, but if the Arizona Cardinals come out and let the Bills get their offense going, it is going to be a dogfight for the Cardinals.'

Marker Bills look to climb out of 0-2 hole against Cardinals [1:53 AM]
Dunkirk Observer reports: 'They say the NFL is 16 one-week seasons, so the Bills will have to try and put the previous two "seasons" behind them, in order to get on track to try and end the longest playoff drought in any of the four major professional sports, a drought that all Bills fans have had more than enough of.'

Marker Tranquil Tyrod Taylor in middle of Bills' circus [1:52 AM]
Newport News Daily Press reports: 'The Ryans are football's Kardashians, and adding them to a volatile franchise such as the Bills carried obvious risk. Dating to Hall of Famer Mary Levy's departure after the 1997 season, none of Buffalo's next six head coaches — Wade Phillips, Gregg Williams, Mike Mularkey, Dick Jauron, Chan Gailey and Doug Marrone — lasted four seasons.'

Marker Here’s why Rex Ryan is not totally to blame for Bills’ failings [1:51 AM]
New York Post reports: 'If the Pegulas end up firing Ryan, the coaching money they would have thrown away since the end of the 2014 season, when Marrone left with his buyout, would exceed a staggering $22 million (Marrone’s $4 million, the $16.5 million of the last three years of Ryan’s contract and the reported $2.4 million remaining on Roman’s contract, which runs though next season).'

Marker Former OU center Ikard’s uncertain NFL path leads back to Buffalo [1:50 AM]
