Buffalo Bills News - November 18, 2014

Marker Bills’ playoff hopes now depend on others [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“It doesn’t start by looking at the whole body of it. It starts by just looking at the next game,” Marrone said. “Even after that the questions will still come until you can just keep putting those wins together. Our focus is on this upcoming game against New York and doing everything we possibly can to get a win.”'

Marker EJ Manuel continues to be at ready for Bills [1:56 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"Each week I've been learning and preparing like I'm going to get a chance to play, that's how it's been," said Manuel, who was benched in favor of Kyle Orton after the Bills' fourth game, a 23-17 loss in Houston, and hasn't taken a live snap since. "It's tough because you don't know when your number will be called again, and you don't want to be in a position where you aren't prepared or didn't take the reps."'

Marker Bills place Leodis McKelvin on injured reserve [1:55 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'The Bills opted to bring in a safety because it is expected that Corey Graham will replace McKelvin the starting lineup, so there was a need for depth in the line. It is uncertain who will assume McKelvin's punt return duties, but Robert Woods was deep against the Dolphins and had one return for 11 yards.'

Marker Bills coach Doug Marrone on 4th down decisions: 'I don't look at is as being conservative' [1:54 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"No, I think I do what's best for us to win," Marrone said. "I don't put a thing on it. I don't look at it as being conservative. It's a matter of what we have to do to win."'

Marker What Doug Marrone, Buffalo Bills players are saying about their playoff chances [1:53 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"We just focus on the next games that we've got and know that we have to play good football. We have to play more consistently. There's always one or two teams at the end of the year that find a way in, so no matter where we're at right now, we're just focusing on ourselves and playing good football."'

Marker Buffalo Bills sign safety Bacarri Rambo, according to report [1:52 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'Rambo, a sixth-round pick out of Georgia, had a rough rookie season with the Redskins. He played in 11 games in 2013 and only eight safeties received a worse grade from Pro Football Focus. Washington cut him two games into the 2014 season.'

Marker Fred Jackson says he will play in Buffalo Bills' Week 12 game against Jets [1:51 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"Yeah, we'll work myself into the process of getting back out there," Jackson said. "I know with our training staff and doctors they'll take every precaution we need to, but like coach Marrone said, if the game was yesterday there's probably a pretty good chance that I would've played. So I'm planning on playing this Sunday and it's just on me to go out there and take this week slowly and get back out there."'

Marker Jets hoping Graham repays the Bills [1:50 AM]
Bergen Record reports: '"I’m from North Carolina," the Raleigh native said, "so that’s home for me. So it’s not going to be weird at all [going back]. It’s cold and it’s been snowing [in Buffalo]. Good thing I was there for a few years so it’s not anything different or new."'

Marker Jackson eager to provide Bills much-needed boost [1:49 AM]
AP reports: '"I need 100 percent for me to be out there and help my teammates," Jackson said. "I think they want me out there. I want to be out there. I want to try to make some plays and get this thing turned around."'

Marker Buffalo Bills place McKelvin on season-ending IR [1:48 AM]
AP reports: 'McKelvin was hurt in a 22-9 loss at Miami on Thursday. The seventh-year player had a team-leading four interceptions in nine starts this season. McKelvin also doubled as a return specialist.'

Marker Bills place McKelvin on IR [1:47 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: 'McKelvin suffered the injury in the first half of Buffalo's 22-9 loss to the Miami Dolphins. He fell awkwardly on his ankle as he missed a tackle on a 33-yard run by Lamar Miller in the second quarter.'

Marker Bills' Jackson expects to play, will be at full capacity [1:46 AM]
WGR-AM reports: '"Anytime you get a good player back in Fred, whether you're handling the ball, throwing the ball -- you know, he's one of our leading receivers -- plus in a protection standpoint, he's been an outstanding player for us," Marrone said. "Obviously, when you can get those type of players back there, it helps."'

Marker McKelvin to IR; Bills sign Rambo [1:45 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'He was later benched, but managed to appear in 11 total games. Rambo was released after two weeks of the 2014 season, which coincided with the return of safety Brandon Meriweather from a suspension.'

Marker 'Right now,' Bills' Marrone sticking with Orton 'this week' [1:44 AM]
WGR-AM reports: '"Right now I'm planning on sticking with Kyle," Marrone said after having the weekend to think about it. "Again, I believe in every player, not just the quarterback position, is who gives us the best chance to win. That's the way I'm headed this week."'

Marker Leodis McKelvin goes to IR, Bills sign S Bacarri Rambo [1:43 AM] reports: 'Rambo entered the NFL as a sixth round draft pick (191st overall) of the Washington Redskins in 2013 before being released by Washington after Week 2. The 6-0, 211 pound Georgia product appeared in 13 games, starting three, during his two seasons with the Redskins, accumulating 30 tackles, one sack, two tackles for loss and one quarterback hit. Rambo, 24, is a native of Donalsonville, GA.'

Marker CB Brandon Smith added to Bills Practice Squad [1:42 AM] reports: 'Smith originally joined Buffalo during the 2013 season spending time on the team’s 53-man roster and Practice Squad before he was released during this year’s training camp. The 6-1, 205-pound Arizona State product entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the Carolina Panthers in 2011.'

November 17, 2014

Marker Bills focused on next win, not playoff race [5:53 AM] reports: '“It’s probably one of those things in the back of your head. You’re hoping that this team loses here, but at the end of the day, we control what we can control,” said Chris Hogan. “Every single week we still have to come out and prepare to win a football game. That’s the biggest thing for us right now. Don’t worry about what’s going to happen in the long run. Worry about what’s going to happen in the next game, and the next game and the next game, and control what we can control.”'

Marker Boy has ‘awesome’ day despite losing contest [5:52 AM]
Finger Lakes Times reports: 'Among the questions he had to field were what positions he would seek to fill in the draft; his favorite subject in school (science); and his favorite current player (Freddy Jackson because “he's a class act” and Eric Wood, because he met and took a picture with him at a Rochester restaurant). In his online answers, Mirras had listed Jim Kelly as his favorite Bills player because he was his grandfather's favorite.'

Marker Going Backwards [5:51 AM]
Bills Daily reports: 'And so here we are, just as in seasons past – mid November and the Bills are all but out of the playoffs baring a mid-air collision between planes carrying the Dolphins and Patriots. The excitement of being 5-3 is long gone. The quarterback we once thought was the answer has turned out to not be much better than the guy he replaced. The offensive line is playing poorly. The defense is very good – if they can avoid being on the field all the time, but with the offense being so anemic they don’t have much choice. The Bills are still giving up big plays to opponents while running a dink and dunk offense to move the ball.'

Marker Now may be time for Manuel’s return [12:54 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'I’d put Manuel back in now. I’ll admit, I was too quick to anoint Orton as a short-term answer. I should have waited to see if he could do what so many other Bills QBs had failed to do before him – win big games in the second half of a season.'

Marker Bills should start EJ Manuel at quarterback [12:53 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'So I guess my question is, would you rather see the Bills finish 6-10, 7-9 or 8-8 under Orton, who we know isn't the team's quarterback of the future, or Manuel, who still has potential to be? A quarterback with 81 career NFL starts and a .500 resume or a kid with 14 that may have learned a lot and is refocused after holding a clipboard the past six weeks and is ready to show us something?'

Marker Corey Graham set to take up for Leodis McKelvin [12:52 AM] reports: '“I’m pretty sure I’m going to be at corner now,” Graham said. “It’s weird how things happen. I’ve been at safety the last four or five weeks and haven’t had any reps at corner. Then this happens and you get thrown in at corner. But I’m prepared for it. I’ve played more corner in my career than safety so that’s kind of a natural position for me. It’s not like something that’s hard to do. I’m just going to go out there and play and make some plays and do the best I possibly can.”'

Marker 8 Bills stats to know from Week 11 [12:51 AM] reports: 'The Buffalo Bills defense produced 5.0 sacks on Thursday night to total 39 for the 2014 season. Buffalo’s 39 sacks are the most in the first 10 games of the season in team history. The Bills remain league leaders in the category.'

Marker Bills, Marrone look for ways to move forward [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“We have to go back to work and really get some things accomplished, really take a good look at ourselves again,” Marrone said. “We keep saying that, but obviously there are some things that we need to correct.”'

Marker Dolphins’ pass, run games had their way [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Tannehill figured that out on the game’s first drive, when he deftly moved the offense down the field by attacking the soft perimeter of Buffalo’s secondary with precise outside throws and finding open receivers on slant routes.'

Marker McKelvin out with ankle fracture [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“We’ll have to see what we’re going to do with that,” Marrone said. “We’re in discussions there, meaning the roster spot and what goes on and where we put him as far as IR and things like that.”'

Marker Bills fell flat in spotlight [1:56 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'I hate any punt executed on the other team’s side of the field, and my vitriol triples when it’s the second half and you’re losing. It’s dumb, it’s wimpy, and it shows no confidence in your team.'

Marker Buffalo Bills players say they didn't quit against Miami Dolphins, won't quit on 2014 season [1:55 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"I don't think nobody quit or nothing," wide receiver Mike Williams said. "We just got beat on a Thursday. They came out and played a good game. We know we made a lot of mistakes, but give all the credit to Miami. Everybody responded the right way, we just came out and lost the game."'

Marker Buffalo Bills coach Doug Marrone has played the percentages right onto the hot seat [1:54 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'Sure, the percentages told you to kick it, Doug.'

Marker Buffalo Bills cornerback Leodis McKelvin out indefinitely with fractured ankle [1:53 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'Corey Graham took over at cornerback when McKelvin went down, while Robert Woods replaced McKelvin as the Bills' punt returner.'
