Buffalo Bills News - November 24, 2015

Marker Report card [1:45 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'As usual, the Bills just weren't good enough to beat the Patriots. It's an old and tired storyline, but there were obvious situations in this game where the outcome could have gone Buffalo's way, but it went New England's because the Patriots always find a way, and the Bills don't. Maddening, but painfully true, and it's not changing any time soon with Bill Belichick and Tom Brady still functioning at such a high level.'

Marker Bills left feeling confused, 'cheated' by inadvertent whistle in loss to Patriots [1:44 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"They cheated us," Bradham said. "They spotted the ball in the middle of the field and gave them all those yards and then blew the whistle. It's crazy, man. At least spot the ball where he caught it. That was just one of them things where they didn't give us no explanation. Fortunately we were able hold them to a field goal."'

Marker Tyrod Taylor not up to challenge in Bills' loss to Patriots [1:43 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Give Ryan credit: His defensive game plan against Brady was solid. The Bills were in the game because of the pressure they were able to create against the best quarterback to ever play the game. Even so, Ryan's in-game clock management was questionable. The team had just one timeout late in the fourth quarter because a miscommunication caused Ryan to burn one. He also failed to go for it on fourth-and-2 near midfield when his team was down 10 with 10 minutes to play in the game. In close games, those small errors can make all the difference.'

Marker Patriots QB Tom Brady uses 'Rex Ryan' as a pre-snap call against Bills [1:42 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'On New England's first drive of the game, Brady stepped to the line and ESPN's cameras clearly picked up the audio of him shouting "Rex Ryan" as his pre-snap audible. The play was a run up the middle.'

Marker Buffalo Bills Week 11 Report Card [1:41 AM]
Auburn Citizen reports: 'Ryan needs to be a little more liberal in those situations. You're playing the Patriots. They have Tom Brady. You don't. Keep the ball and try to get the two yards. It could make a huge difference.'

Marker Patriots top Bills to remain undefeated [1:40 AM]

Marker Subdued Rex Ryan admits Patriots the better team [1:39 AM]
Boston Globe reports: '“That’s an outstanding football team we played. They proved it again tonight,” said Ryan. “We just weren’t good enough. We’re not quite there. … It’s tough to match with them, personnel-wise. They did a great job. That’s a good football team. They deserved to win. We know right now we’ve got to find a way to get better – as players get better, as coaches get better. If we do, we’ll see if there’s a different outcome.”'

Marker Once again, Rex Ryan on the wrong end in rivalry [1:38 AM]
Boston Globe reports: 'Ryan is svelte now. But he is still a glutton for punishment at the hands of the Patriots. A coaching masochist, Ryan is now 4-11 against Brady and Belichick.'

Marker Rex’ hex not done yet [1:37 AM]
Boston Herald reports: 'They are entertaining confrontations if you are two of three types of observers. They are fun if you have no dog in the hunt and they are fun, — but only once they’re finished — if you’re a Patriots fan. If you’re Rex Ryan, however, they are similar to a root canal. They’re not something you look forward to repeating.'

Marker Rex Ryan impressed by Patriots defense [1:36 AM]
Providence Journal reports: '"It's not back there with the Bruschis and all those guys," Ryan said. "They're playing the run extremely well and they're doing a great job in the back end. Usually it's a defense that really bends and doesn’t break. They're being much more aggressive this year."'

Marker Bills Postgame Quotes 11/23 [1:34 AM] reports: 'Obviously, we've got some huge challenges in front of us - we've got to play in another short week again on the road - which is two out of three games. The NFL [is" target="_blank"> not doing us any favors, but you know what, it is the way it is. We've got a lot of guys banged up. It was tough to match with them personnel-wise, but they did a great job. That's a good football team and they deserved to win and we know right now we just have got to find a way to get better - each man get better, each coach get better and when we do, we'll see if it's a different outcome.'

Marker Patriots improve to 10-0, beat Bills 20-13 [1:33 AM]
AP reports: 'The game was filled with mistakes, penalties, injuries and turnovers — including two fumbles on a single punt, a rare missed field goal by New England's Stephen Gostkowski and an inadvertent whistle that led to one of many lengthy conferences among the officials.'

Marker 3 things we learned about the Bills [1:29 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: 'Tyrod Taylor has guts. The kid had trouble throwing the long ball and even some short ones on Monday night. But he ran for his life under pressure and made some nifty plays out of nothing. He threw for 233 yards and was sacked twice. He needs more experience, but he can make some plays.'

Marker Patriots suffer more injuries, stay perfect [1:26 AM]
CBS Sports reports: 'The Bills (5-5) played a very nice defensive game and put a ton of pressure on Brady, routinely hitting the Pats quarterback with big shots in the backfield (Jerry Hughes rocked him once like crazy). Brady hung in there and made as many plays as he could, but the Pats were stymied offensively for a large portion of the game. Still, there were chances for the Bills to steal this.'

Marker Patriots Beat Bills 20-13 [1:24 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'The loss was costly -- Tyrod Taylor, Sammy Watkins, Charles Clay, John Miller, Marcell Dareus, Mario Williams, and Baccari Rambo were all nicked up or left the game at various points. Although Taylor was able to finish the game, he was clearly in pain, holding his right shoulder/collarbone area. Rex Ryan wasn't able to offer an update on Taylor, saying only he hopes the quarterback is ready for next week's key game at 5-5 Kansas City.'

Marker Bills fall to the undefeated Patriots 20-13 [1:23 AM]
WIVB-TV reports: 'Mistakes proved to be the knife to Buffalo’s back. Several miscommunicated passes stalled out Buffalo drives and a pair of plays with blown coverage by Buffalo’s secondary would allow Patriots to score twice.'

Marker Bills Lose Tough One In New England 20-13 [1:22 AM]
Bills Daily reports: 'Rex Ryan said he had a plan against Brady. Gilmore said they had a plan for Gronkowski. Both were right as they hit Brady early and often while keeping Gronk at bay but as usual the Patriots found a way to win a game at the Razor. The Bills fought hard and had perhaps their best defensive effort of the season but the offense let them down in a big way. The Bills can't wallow with this one, they need to take solace that they gave New England everything they had and use it to gain confidence for what's ahead. Two huge games against teams they are battling with for a playoff spot. If they can win the next two, this loss will be forgotten quickly.'

Marker Solid Defensive Effort Against Brady Wasted [1:21 AM]
Bills Daily reports: 'Rex Ryan had a great gameplan for staying in this game but his decision to punt on 4th and 2 from their 47 with just over 10 minutes to go down by 10. How do you beat New England by doing that?'

Marker Patriots outlast Bills 20-13 [1:20 AM] reports: 'Buffalo knew they needed a near perfect performance against the Patriots in New England to get a valuable AFC conference and division win, but the Bills couldn’t execute consistently in the passing game and had two miscues on special teams. It was enough to help give New England a 20-13 victory over Buffalo.'

Marker Bills’ defense ready for a chess match against Brady & Co. [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“That’s the biggest thing we need to show – that we’re calm,” Brown said. “We were looking spastic at times running out there and leaving guys wide open. At the goal line, letting them go free. There was stuff we can’t allow to happen. We understand what we have to do. We just have to go out and do it.”'
