Marker Buffalo Bills report card [5:22 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Drew Bledsoe flunked his exam against his former teacher, Bill Parcells, completing just half of his 34 attempts for a mere 104 yards. Worst, he fumbled on two of the three times he was sacked, his first setting up the only TD Dallas would need. Was 2 of 8 for 1 yard in the fourth quarter when game was there to be won. Where’s Rob Johnson when you need him?'

Marker Cowboys defense makes Bills pay for mistakes [5:21 AM]
Dallas Morning News reports: 'Buffalo (4-5) has three star-quality offensive players – quarterback Drew Bledsoe, running back Travis Henry and receiver Eric Moulds. None made an impact Sunday.'

Marker Bledsoe has harried look vs. Dallas 'D' [5:20 AM]
Dallas Morning News reports: 'The rest of the game, he was chased, sacked, hurried and generally harassed into a dreadful performance. Against a constant blitz, Bledsoe never could connect with his open receiver to force the Cowboys to back off. Even when he had time, it looked like he was in a hurry.'

Marker Corners keep passing tests [5:19 AM]
Dallas Morning News reports: 'Going against Newman and Mario Edwards, Moulds left Sunday with five catches for 32 yards, and Bledsoe had 104 yards passing. The Bills passing game looked as bad as the Redskins' the week before.'

Marker Cowboys' tight ends come up big [5:18 AM]
Dallas Morning News reports: 'To ensure Buffalo would be fooled by the run fake, Parcells put two tight ends and two fullbacks in the game. Carter faked a pitch left and rolled right, where he threw a pass to Campbell, who was open in the back of the end zone.'

Marker Defense attacking QBs with numbers [5:17 AM]
Dallas Morning News reports: 'Buffalo quarterback Drew Bledsoe went to pieces in the face of the blitzes and failed to produce a touchdown in a 10-6 loss to the Cowboys at Texas Stadium.'

Marker Dallas need not be great, just better [5:16 AM]

Marker Murrell shines in closing role [5:15 AM]
Dallas Morning News reports: 'Murrell finished with 76 yards on 16 carries, including a game-clinching 17-yarder on third-and-8 from the Dallas 40 with 1:09 left in the fourth quarter of the Cowboys' 10-6 win against Buffalo. "That's one of the best feelings in the world," Murrell said. "They were trying their hardest to keep us from getting that first down. And it wasn't like it was third-and-1 or third-and-2. It was third-and-8, and we got a first down. It's just a great feeling."'

Marker Cowboys report card [5:12 AM]
Dallas Morning News reports: 'Drew Bledsoe never really had a chance. When Dallas wasn't pressuring him or hitting him with its variety of blitzes, cornerbacks Terence Newman and Mario Edwards were shutting down Eric Moulds, Josh Reed and Bobby Shaw. They combined for 11 catches but only 70 yards. Bledsoe became the fifth consecutive quarterback to pass for fewer than 150 yards against Dallas.'

Marker Cowboys notebook [5:11 AM]

Marker East Coast bias now works both ways [5:10 AM]
Dallas Morning News reports: 'After Sunday's 10-6 win over Buffalo, the Cowboys are 2-0 against the AFC East. They will finish off play against the division by the end of the month. Now that the easy portion is finished, the Cowboys still have to go to division leader New England on Sunday night and host Miami on Thanksgiving Day.'

Dallas Morning News reports: 'Tony Labarba and 17 of his closest hardhat buddies made the roadie to Dallas in what has become a once-a-year thing for the upstate New York natives. "We went to Houston last year, Dallas this year. We've had a good time here, but the fans are pretty tame. People are extremely nice and helpful, but the fans are low-key." Memo to Cowboys fans: Don't take Labarba that seriously. Dude let his buddies paint a Bills replica helmet on his shiny dome.'

Marker Tenacious D [5:08 AM]

Marker Slumping Bills offense comes up empty again [5:05 AM]
Fort Worth Star Telegram reports: '"We didn't make plays when they were there," Moulds said. "We knew they were going to come after us, and on a couple of drives they came after us on every play."'

Marker Cowboys commit to committee approach [5:04 AM]
Fort Worth Star Telegram reports: 'While the Cowboys can deny they have a running back controversy, there is no denying they have a running game problem.'

Marker Hambrick's diminished role raises questions, coach's voice [5:03 AM]
Fort Worth Star Telegram reports: 'Twelve times in the game's final 19 minutes, Murrell carried the football, gaining yards, buying time. And finally, on a third-down-and-eight play in the final 69 seconds, Murrell slammed the door on the scrappy Bills with a 17-yard run. He finished with 76 yards on 16 carries. Hambrick had 33 yards in 13 attempts.'

Marker Head games [4:58 AM]
