Buffalo Bills News - September 22, 2017

Marker Kiszla: There’s old friend of the Broncos lurking in Buffalo, itching to ruin Denver’s 2 [1:47 AM]
Denver Post reports: 'Well, this much we know is true about Dennison: He’s unafraid to win ugly. As fans in Broncos Country know all too well, Dennison will dial down the pace until an NFL game becomes little more than an excuse for a nap on the sofa. While new Denver offensive coordinator Mike McCoy is more apt to draw up a play in the dirt than to strictly follow a script, Dennison is an engineer that prefers the sweat equity of a one-brick-at-time grind.'

Marker Broncos prepare for Bills' ground stampede of LeSean McCoy, Tyrod Taylor [1:46 AM] reports: '"'Shady' [McCoy" target="_blank"> is probably one of the more electrifying backs going back to Barry Sanders," said Broncos Defensive Coordinator Joe Woods. "He is a daylight runner, meaning he may start off to the A gap one side, and end up on the sideline on the other side."'

Marker Bills' McCoy vows to find his stride against Broncos [1:45 AM]
AP reports: '"In this league, you've got to deal with it. Too much complaining. Too many excuses," McCoy said, shouldering the blame for being held to 9 yards on 12 rushes — a career low for a game in which he has more than seven carries — in a 9-3 loss to the Panthers.'

Marker Week 3 GameScout: Broncos at Bills [1:44 AM]

Marker Bills get Glenn, Lawson back at practice [1:43 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Lawson suffered a nerve contusion in his foot in Sunday’s 9-3 loss to the Panthers, but both he and head coach Sean McDermott indicated they are confident he will play Sunday. Glenn is dealing with an injured foot. Both players were held out of practice Wednesday.'

Marker 'Circling a wagon' around New Era Field ahead of this weekend's Bills game [1:42 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'New Era's official "Circle The Wagon" vehicle, a horse-drawn wagon, will make stops along Abbott Road, handing out "Circle the Wagons" patches to fans.'

Marker Bills Today: Tough test for Bills 'D' against red hot Broncos [1:39 AM] reports: '“He’s a good quarterback. When I was in Carolina a year ago, we went against Trevor [in the] opening game of the season last year. He’s smart, very intelligent player… I think those around the league that know the league, know what he’s capable of doing,” Sean McDermott said.'

Marker Bills must find way to stretch field on offense [4:30 PM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'In fairness, Carolina has an impressive defense and it was the home opener. After two games, the Panthers lead the NFL in fewest total yards, passing yards and points surrendered (Buffalo is second, second and fourth in those categories). But it’s worth wondering whether Carolina’s stats are inflated merely because one of its two games was against the Bills’ struggling attack.'

Marker Thursday's Denver Coverage [9:11 AM] reports: Click here

Marker Bills' run struggles impacted by new blocking scheme [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'It's easy and perhaps more comforting to conclude that a week after dominating the New York Jets' defensive front to the tune of 190 yards on the ground (110 by McCoy), the Bills' offensive line simply was overmatched by more talented defensive linemen and linebackers. Coach Sean McDermott chose to go that route Wednesday when he told reporters, "I think, really, when you look a week ago against the Jets, how we controlled the line of scrimmage ... this is one game. That’s life sometimes in the NFL."'

Marker Jerry Sullivan: More trouble ahead for Bills running game [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'It's true. The Bills have established a standard that would be difficult to meet in any event. But several factors are conspiring against them approaching their running numbers of 2015-16, when they ran for 5,062 yards (158 per game) on 1,001 carries, a hefty 5.1 yards a rushing attempt.'

Marker Kimberley A. Martin: Offensive issues mean Bills D has to play lights out [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“Oh, probably more than that. Yes, I can certainly see it,” Hughes said, praising head man Sean McDermott for “doing a great job” of putting players in positions that best suit their individual strengths. “I really don’t have a number in mind. But, oh yeah (I can do 10). Absolutely. In a 4-3, I’m in the trenches. I feel a lot more at home. A lot more comfortable.”'

Marker Police investigating after man is shot at California home owned by Bills CB Shareece Wright [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Officers from the Moreno Valley Police Department responded to the report of a shooting at 12:44 a.m. Sunday within the 28000 block of Lexington Way. Wright confirmed to The Buffalo News on Wednesday that he owns the home where the shooting occurred, and that it’s occupied by his mother, sister and brother.'

Marker Bills Notebook: McDermott uncertain about Dareus' availability for Sunday [1:55 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"I am concerned," McDermott said. "It's day to day at this point and we've got to make sure that we have a contingency plan in place."'

Marker What They Said: Bills HC McDermott, QB Taylor, RB McCoy, WR Jones, LB Brown, S Poyer, WR Holmes, C W [1:54 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Yeah, he’s got an ankle [injury] right now so he’s not going to practice today and we’ll know a little bit more going forward right now, but right now he’s not going to practice.'

Marker Vic Carucci's Take Five: Bills can't reinvent offense, but should be willing and able to t [1:53 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'When the opponent is capable of offering far more resistance than the New York Jets did in the Bills' season-opening victory, LeSean McCoy can't always work from a conventional scheme that has him taking all or most of his handoffs from behind Tyrod Taylor. There has to be instances where, as he did the past two years, he lines up next to Taylor in shotgun formation and opposing defenders are left guessing about whether the quarterback is going to stick the ball in Taylor's belly or keep it himself.'

Marker Carolina was a historically bad rushing day for RBs [1:52 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The running backs had 14 yards on 15 carries. LeSean McCoy carried it 12 times for 9 yards. Mike Tolbert had 5 yards on 3 rushes. That's 15 carries for 14 yards by the team's two "tailbacks." I hesitate to call Tolbert a tailback because he's a fullback by trade and masquerading as a tailback in Buffalo.'

Marker Mark Gaughan's X's and O's: Don't let Von Miller run the game [1:51 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“When they play that style of defense, you have to be able to consistently attack with the passing game,” Garrett told reporters. "We really needed to have success throwing the ball. We were not able to do that."'

Marker Shady says incentives were about more than 'loot' [1:50 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"I just wanted the loot, baby!" McCoy said as reporters burst out laughing in the media room. "No, it wasn't like that. It just happened. It had nothing to do with the extra loot."'

Marker Dareus Review: Sizable impact beyond stat sheet in limited action vs. Panthers [1:49 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'In Carolina, the Buffalo defensive tackle received an overall PFF grade of +1.0 on just 18 snaps – he suffered an ankle injury early in the game but returned in the second half. That was the sixth-highest grade of all 17 Bills defenders who saw the field in Week 2.'

Marker What the national media is saying: What if Tyrod picked Denver? How did Carolina stop McCoy? [1:48 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Rex Ryan likely would've started Matt Cassel that season. If he quarterbacked the team to a worse record than the 8-8 they achieved under Taylor (and some of EJ Manuel), the Bills would've owned a higher draft pick, but Cleveland owned their first-rounder that year anyway. The only top-level quarterbacks in that class, Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota, went 1-2 ... but one quarterback available later in the draft was Trevor Siemian, who ended up in Denver and will start this weekend against the Bills.'

Marker Mark Gaughan's Big-Play Breakdown: Von Miller's wide-9 rush [1:47 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The most famous of Von Miller's 82 career sacks (counting playoffs) was his strip-sack of Cam Newton (1) in Super Bowl 50 that produced a Denver touchdown. What makes Miller's speed rush so devastating is his ability to dip his inside shoulder low to the ground like a speed skater, which gives the offensive tackle a small target to hit. Then Miller bends his hips back and drives to the QB.'

Marker Bills-Broncos Scouting Report: Running room figures to be tough to come by again for LeSean McCoy [1:46 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Broncos 24, Bills 20.'

Marker Sammy Watkins is a flat-earther [1:45 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'But despite this universally accepted, undeniable and easily provable scientific fact, some people still choose to wrongly believe that our planet is flat. They are called flat-earthers, and you can join their society with a $12 donation.'

Marker Bills Fans Near And Far: ESPN radio's Christine Lisi [1:44 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"I became a Bills fan when I was really little," Lisi explained. "My dad would always listen to Bills games on the radio because they wouldn’t sell out in time to be on television. So, I heard a lot of Van Miller and Stan Barron growing up. I remember going to my first game when I was seven and saw the Bills beat down the Jets."'

Marker Stats Wizard: 1960s Bills quick-hitters, including a crazy nugget about Billy Atkins [1:43 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'In 1961, Billy Atkins led the AFL with 10 interceptions. However, he did not return any for a touchdown, with his longest return going 29 yards. Here is where it gets fun: He had a 39-yard field goal that year, as well as a 56-yard rushing touchdown — the only touchdown of his career. Yet, he had more interceptions than he had rushing attempts (2) that season.'

Marker Hall of Famer Andre Reed has his back, so it's all good for Bills' Zay Jones [1:42 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: ' “I’m going to be in that position again, maybe even this week, farther down the line, but when my time comes I’ll be prepared and I’ll make that catch,’’ said Jones as he addressed the media on Wednesday at the team’s practice facility.'

Marker Marcell Dareus' ankle injury may keep him out against Denver Broncos [1:41 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '“He’s got an ankle right now, won’t practice today,” coach Sean McDermott said Wednesday morning. “It’s a sprain, that’s what we know today. I am concerned, but it’s day-to-day at this point. We have to make sure we have a contingency plan in place.”'
