Marker Buffalo's special teams reduce Rams to tears [3:33 PM]
Niagara Falls Reporter reports: '"They just have good people," Martz said. "Maybe that's the secret." Maybe, Mike. Or maybe you're a pompous windbag who, despite your delusions of genius, was handed a franchise on the brink of dynasty and guided it into the septic tank of mediocrity, making some of the dumbest decisions in recent league history along the way.'

Marker Bills even score with April, Fletcher's former team [9:40 AM]
Wellsville Daily Reporter reports: 'But more importantly, he didn't pass up a conversation earlier in the week with former Buffalo Bill Jim Kelly, a Hall of Famer. ''We just talked a little bit of how you handle things and how you deal with things when you're faced with some adversity ... It was good conversation,'' Bledsoe said.

Marker Plenty more class on the Buffalo sideline [9:39 AM]
Wellsville Daily Reporter reports: 'When his press conference was over, he walked from the press conference area to the locker room, but not before telling Buffalo defensive coordinator Jerry Gray in the hallway that the Bills illegally cut blocked.

I didn't think anybody else was there.' I was getting out of gas too. I'm not going to lie. But I thought I was going to score."'

Marker An afternoon to remember, but road calls [8:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'So while Sunday was a day to remember, I'll hesitate to attach any great significance to it. The Bills are not a bad team, as they appeared to be in the first month of the season. But until they can win on the road, they're counterfeit Bills, the biggest frontrunners in the NFL. Really, how can the team that put on that display be winless on the road at Thanksgiving?'

Buffalo News reports: '"I didn't get a ball in three weeks, and that's frustrating," said Campbell, who has 14 catches for 172 yards and a team-high five touchdowns for the season. "But winning cures all that. When you're winning, it's easy to deal with. If you're losing, you feel like you've got to be able to do something to help. I feel like I'm the kind of guy who can do both block and catch. While I feel like I've blocked well the last three weeks, I haven't been able to make plays. What happened today confirms to me that when you get the opportunities you have capitalize on them."'

Rochester D&C reports: 'The Buffalo Bills have won four straight home games but they're one of only four winless road teams this season (with Cleveland, Miami and San Francisco) and can't be considered an above-average team until they win a game or two outside of Ralph Wilson Stadium.'

Marker Two-minute read [5:10 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'WR Torry Holt on Bills' dirty play: "I don't know what they were told before the game, but they came out and took some shots at us that I think were unnecessary."'

Marker Report card [5:10 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Special teams: They just keep getting better for the Bills with rookie Jonathan Smith setting up a TD with a 53-yard punt return and Nate Clements scoring on an 86-yard punt return the very next time up.

St. Louis Post Dispatch reports: '"Absolutely, they're doing it intentionally," Martz said. "They're trying to blow somebody's knee out. There's no question about it. And it worked. They got two of our corners. I asked the officials to protect our players, and they were fairly indignant about it."'
