Buffalo News reports: '“Now, it might not happen today or tomorrow, but it’s probably in the cards in the foreseeable future,” Franczyk said. “If it’s going to happen, Buffalo at least should be out in front of this process, because I think those kinds of venues should be in cities.”'

Marker Packers’ Rodgers may be best of the best [1:59 AM]

Marker Bills riding it out with Orton [1:55 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Clearly, of the quarterbacks Marrone has had the misfortune of playing in his 29-game tenure as Bills coach — Manuel, Lewis, and Jeff Tuel — Orton is the best of the bunch.

Marker Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins says he 'probably hit rookie wall' in 2014 [1:50 AM]

I think now I think I got my mind back in the right place and that's focused," the Buffalo Bills receiver said Wednesday. "I just had to re-focus myself and now I think I'm focused and I can go out and perform the right way. I probably did hit the rookie wall, or was about to hit the rookie wall three or four weeks ago.

Marker Aaron Rodgers says it will be great to get Packers' first win in Buffalo [1:49 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"I think that was a lot of our talk heading into our last game against Cleveland," defensive tackle Kyle Williams said. "We hadn't played particularly well at home. We were able to do it there and win a big game with Cleveland at home. We've got an even bigger game this week, and with Aaron Rodgers and their offense coming in, our crowd can play a big a part in this game as they've played in any game this year. He relies a lot on different counts, a lot on different cadences, keep pass rushers off their toes, keep the defense on their toes. So yeah, crowd noise could be a big benefit for us this week."'

Marker Can Kyle Orton author upset of Packers again? [1:47 AM] reports: '“I’ve probably never seen a defense play to each other’s strengths as well as our guys do. Our secondary has really played well all year. They play aggressive. They know the quarterback doesn’t have a ton of time to throw the ball so they play very aggressive. They’re smart. They’re well-coached. It can turn into a feeding frenzy pretty quick. It’s fun to take a peek at our defense whenever they’re on the field,” he added.'
