Marker Bills Playoff Chances [10:33 AM]

Marker Clements goes in lockdown mode against Johnson [8:55 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"You've got a guy who's got 80 catches and 1,100 yards," said Bills defensive coordinator Jerry Gray. "You've got to play great defense on him.

Erie Times News reports: 'Let's imagine the Bills go to San Francisco and smoke the 49ers on Sunday and come home with a 9-6 record, needing a win, and perhaps a little help, to secure a most improbable playoff spot after an 0-4 start. Let's imagine first-year Bills coach Mike Mularkey needing to beat his old team to get in. Let's imagine Steelers coach Bill Cowher needing to beat his old protege to avoid a potential trip to Foxboro, the last place the Steelers want to play with a trip to the Super Bowl on the line. Let's imagine Cowher having the chance to tweak his old boss Bills president Tom Donahoe, who had an icy relationship with Cowher in Pittsburgh by knocking Buffalo out of the playoffs. Now you're seeing why naughty can be so much fun.'

Cincinnati Post reports: '"We're fighting for the same things the Bills are and they came in here and won the football game," said Lewis. "It means we're not as far along as I would hope we would be.

We kind of imploded from there."'

Marker Spikes' return a dream come true [7:18 AM]
Cincinnati Post reports: '"It came so quick and I just caught it and thought 'I'm off to the races,'" Spikes said. "In 2001, I got an interception here against the Ravens and running it back 66 yards and I was looking up at the Jumbotron and saw someone running behind me. This time I did the same thing this time, and I said I hope Chad (Johnson) isn't behind me or somebody fast. But I didn't care, because nobody was going to catch me."'

Marker Big chill on Sunday played into Bills' hands [7:18 AM]

Marker Couldn't get hands on enough turnovers [5:38 AM]

Cincinnati Enquirer reports: 'Peters ran through a gap between long snapper Brad St. Louis and the right guard. Larson said he keeps his head down and did not see what happened.

"I saw what happened, a lack of focus and not finishing the play off and getting the guy blocked."'

Marker Red-hot Bills put big chill on Bengals' playoff hopes [5:36 AM]
Dayton Daily News reports: '"It was one of those crazy games," Kitna said. "Everything seemed to go their way. On the interception to Takeo, he tackles our running back and picks it off. You don't think that's going to happen, and you think when it does happen, (the refs) would make a call. They didn't."'

Marker Takeo finally plays for playoffs [5:35 AM]
Dayton Daily News reports: '"I tell you though, it couldn't have happened any better way. It reminded me of 2001 when I got an interception (and a 66-yard touchdown return) against the Ravens here. I remember looking on the JumboTron screen to see if somebody was running up behind me. This time I thought the same thing. I said, 'Man, I hope Chad's (Johnson) not behind me.' I didn't want somebody fast back there, but really I didn't care. They might have caught me, but nobody was taking me down."'
