Marker London Fletcher Quotes [8:33 PM] reports: '"Right now it's tough because it's the present one. We played a Houston team that has improved, but are they a better football team than us? No."'

Marker Rian Lindell Quotes [8:32 PM] reports: '"I crammed myself and planted a little too close to the ball. I didn't really give myself a chance to extend and get a good swing on it. That's what happens and you kind of get those ugly ones to the left."'

Marker Bobby Shaw Quotes [8:31 PM] reports: 'Do you wonder where all the points have gone?
"Well we're not putting it in the end zone. If we don't put it in the end zone and don't put it through the up-rights we're not going to get points. It's as simple as that. We're just not finishing drives. We've got to be able to finish drives. We've got to be able to concentrate and focus and do what we need to do. It's just not happening right now and that's killing us when we get down there to put points on the board."'

Marker Dom Capers Quotes [8:31 PM] reports: '"Well it's hard for me to comment on their football team. All I know is we felt coming in this was gonna be a close, hard fought game and that we were going to have to find a way, like many of our games. I think if you look at six of our football games, we've been able to win I think four of those six. We've lost a couple that were real close in the end. We felt if we could keep our poise and keep fighting and find a way to make a play… We found a way to make some big plays down the stretch in the second half."'

Marker Tony Banks Quotes [8:30 PM] reports: '"They're always good, anytime you can beat a great defense like that on the road, you've got to love that."'

Marker NFL PrimeTime HQ! (ESPN chat) [7:20 PM]
ESPN reports: Adam(Buffalo): Tom, do you think the Bills coaching staff should be fired or is it their personel to blame for these awful couple of weeks?

Tom Jackson: (5:11 PM ET ) I'll just say this. I bet that Kevin Gilbride is fired this week. Les Steckel could be calling their plays next week. Gilbride is the offensive coordinator there and Ralph Wilson wanted to fire him last week.

Marker Bills RB Henry continued playing with cracked fibula [7:18 PM]

Marker For Bills, it's right here, right now [9:06 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride said the Bills need to find a way to get their confidence back. "I think certain parts of our game are coming together," he said. "But you get to a point where you're not playing as well as you would like, then you start to press and step outside yourself, and instead of getting better you wind up getting worse. Somehow we have to continue to work hard and not get discouraged, which is not easy to do, and make a play or two. Make a play, you feel good about it and then I think it's kind of a self-fulfilling prophecy. You start feeling good and start expecting success and success seems to follow suit."'

Marker Bills are desperate to get off the beaten path [9:05 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'At 4-5, the Bills aren't out of the playoff chase - at least not yet. But they have left themselves with no more room for error.'

Marker Today's key matchup [9:03 AM]

Marker Fan blitz on Bledsoe off target [9:02 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'There's a relatively simple way for the Bills to win a lot more games with Bledsoe as their quarterback: Run the football and design maximum protection (without putting Sam Gash in motion to run pass routes) to give him time to set his feet and pass.'

Marker Stopping on a dime [9:01 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The Bills have been looking for big plays from the defense all year, but they have forced just 10 turnovers. Winfield hasn't picked off a pass since Nov. 11, 2001, against the Patriots. He doesn't have an interception in a game the Bills won since 1999, when they beat Miami his rookie year. "I've had my hands on a few balls," Winfield said. "I've dropped some. I really don't get that many opportunities and when I do I haven't come up with them. I don't have the interceptions, but I have the tackles. I don't really give up many deep balls for touchdowns and stuff like that. General managers and everybody will look at that."'

Marker Athlete, volunteer, Bills fan: the all-around Mary Wilson [9:00 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"I think what makes this place incredible is really the people," Mary Wilson said. "I think people take more time with people here."'

Marker Bills need to really hammer it home [5:15 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Cincinnati hammered Houston with 57 runs, good for 240 yards, in a 34-27 win last Sunday. Bills running back Travis Henry would love to see the coaching staff keep it simple today against Houston’s injury riddled, 31st-ranked defense. “Oh, yeah, most definitely,” he said. “They’ve shown you can run on them, there’s a lot of creases in that defense, they give up a lot of lanes to run through. I don’t see why we shouldn’t be able to move the ball on them.”'

Marker Q&A: Willis McGahee [5:14 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'What do you miss most about college?
“College girls.”'

Marker Bills fumble on turnovers, sacks [5:13 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Since 2001, the Bills rank last in the NFL in both turnover differential and sack differential (excluding the second-year Houston Texans). That’s a parlay guaranteed to lose a lot of football games.'

Marker Bills’ playoff hopes face must-win [5:12 AM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'And, surprisingly, the Bills’ faithful remain loyal, producing the fifth home sellout in as many games this season.'

Marker Oh, Henry [5:11 AM]
Houston Chronicle reports: 'The Texans have allowed an average of 137 rushing yards a game, fourth-worst in the NFL. Not surprisingly, opposing offensive coordinators are watching game tape and making it a point to exploit the Texans' injury-depleted defensive line.'

Marker Position-by-position matchups [5:10 AM]
Houston Chronicle reports: 'It has become painfully obvious that the Texans can't defend the run, and the Bills will exploit that on a day when the conditions could make it difficult to throw the ball. Buffalo's defense has been solid, but the Texans consistently have moved the ball on good defenses this season. The offense can't afford to leave plays on the field, as it did in last week's loss to Cincinnati. If it does, the result will be the same.'

Marker Fangio still has a Jones for a good challenge [5:09 AM]
Houston Chronicle reports: 'All of which sends Fangio scrambling in against the Buffalo Bills the way he has since the start of the season, scheming and plotting and playing chess without the right number of pieces, juggling with one arm. The defense that a year ago was eighth-best overall in the league now is ranked 31st.'
