We were able to do that.”'

Marker Bacarri Rambo’s unexpected INTs crucial in win [1:16 AM] reports: '“We believed in each other all week. The coaches, the team, the players, everybody just believed in each other. We knew that we could come in here, do the right things, and do what the coaches ask us to do, and we could stop this team. We believe in each other, throughout this whole week. We still believe in each other. This is a huge confidence boost for the whole defense. To not allow not one quarterback, but two of the hottest quarterbacks in the NFL to no passing touchdowns, this is a huge, huge confidence boost for us.”'

Marker Bills and the crowd need to be at their best [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Tiebreakers are a problem, and I can’t see them winning two of the last three. But a win would ensure their first .500 season in 10 years. I’ve given up trying to predict Pegula’s thinking, but that might be enough to save Marrone’s job in the eyes of a forgiving owner.'

Marker Former Jill looks to add NFL to suit over wages [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The legal papers allege “that at the times Mr. Goodell affixed his rubber stamps to the contracts, he and the NFL knew that the Jills were employees rather than independent contractors following a 1995 decision of the National Labor Relations Board.”'

Marker The incomparable Aaron Rodgers: Packers QB on another level [1:55 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"You turn on the film and he's something special," Matthews said. "He's obviously in the running for MVP year in and year out, probably having a second MVP season this year. He's smart, he knows what the defense is doing, he knows where the weaknesses are, he knows where to pick on. And he's got a bunch of players who can complement him on the offensive side of the ball. It's a hard offense to contain, and we know that from going up against him in practice."'

Marker Three ... and out [1:54 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Packers 31, Bills 20.'

"It's not like we haven't been in there. It's not like we haven't moved the ball better than we have in the past, but we haven't scored. That's what you need to do in this game to win.'

Now he’s the quarterbacks coach with the Packers, in charge of a Rodgers-led room that also includes one-time Bill Matt Flynn.'

Marker Bills can’t let time be on Rodgers’ side [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Mobility is a huge part of Rodgers’ game. He knows how to maneuver his way around the pocket to allow his receivers to get open and find the right places to go with the ball.'

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. So you want to know where he’s at … because he’s a damn good player.'

Marker Packers defense not among NFL's elite [1:57 AM]

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. That’s why the defense needs to keep the Packers from reaching the end zone on every scoring opportunity they have and force field goals. 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. Bills players admitted that they lacked focus on the big stage. Well, Sunday will be another big stage, so the Bills better hope they learned something at Mile High.'

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.'
