Jets-Bills preview [9:10 AM]
Wellsville Daily Reporter reports: 'Despite the early success of the Jets secondary, the Bills plan to stick with their style of offense.

More work in preseason gets Martin rolling early [8:51 AM]

BuffaloBills.com reports: 'The Bills have had difficulty against the Jets at Giants Stadium recently. They have won only one game in their past six visits against the Jets, but this week they may be a bit more desperate to get a win against a division opponent. The Bills nearly stole one last week from the defending Super Bowl champs but came up short in the fourth quarter on mistakes. Buffalo is 2-11 in their last thirteen road games so they will have to play a near error-free game in order to get their season back on track.'
NYC Bills Backers Transform McFadden's [1:47 PM]
BuffaloBills.com reports: 'Needless to say, these Bills Backers do a pretty good job of turning McFadden's into a mini-version of Buffalo on gamedays.

Kabel, along with co-founder Matt Soreco, started the group during the 2001 offseason.'
Jets are a surprise, but not Edwards [1:45 PM]
Olean Times Herald reports: '“One of my pet peeves is don’t commit foolish fouls. Our players understand how important that is ... we stress it. We have officials at every practice during the preseason through right now. They throw the flag, we talk about it, I emphasize it. We put their numbers up on the board ... how many penalties you’ve had ... you can’t beat yourself. (Officials) come (to practices) three days a week and it’s just like a game. I write the down the penalties and after the meetings I write them down on the board. One thing players don’t want is to seem like they’re hurting the football team. And when you make a strong commitment to ‘This is what we’re about and this is what we’re going to do,’ they get it. After awhile, they don’t want to see their number up there, because it becomes, ‘Hey, why are you up there all the time.’”'
