Marker All right, I'm a believer now [5:21 AM]

Marker Surprising studs and duds [5:20 AM]
D and C reports: 'You know it is another zany NFL season when the Buffalo Bills are favored by 3 points Sunday against the defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots.'

Marker Report Card [5:19 AM]
D and C reports: 'Eric Moulds and Peerless Price continue their Pro Bowl bids, each topping 100 yards receiving in the same game for the second time this season. When the Lions blitzed, the Dynamic Duo made them pay dearly. Moulds (9 catches for 123 yards) simply could not be covered by Lions cornerback Todd Lyght one-on-one, and set up one TD with a 42-yard grab. Price put a great deke on cornerback Eric Davis to score. A+'

Marker For Bledsoe it's Lions down, Pats to go [5:18 AM]
Toronto Sun reports: '"I've been here for four years and the last couple have been really rough," said Price, who undressed Lions' defensive back Eric Davis with a midfield deke. "I am just happy we have a winning streak. I don't even care if we win ugly."'

Marker Harrington keeps learning [5:17 AM]
Toronto Sun reports: 'After three consecutive games of throwing for more than 350 yards, Harrington was held to 199 completing 20 of 42 attempts. He managed to avoid a sack, but the Buffalo defence got in his face enough to repeatedly force him to get rid of the ball quickly.'

Marker Buffalo more than Bledsoe and company [5:16 AM]
Toronto Star reports: '"It was nice to see them step up and win it at the end of the game," said Bills head coach Gregg Williams of his defensive unit key, late stop.'

Marker Lions can't get yard when they need it [5:15 AM]
Detroit Free Press reports: 'The lesson? "Got to play better, more often," Harrington said, mustering his best response to a situation that is growing increasingly frustrating to him and his teammates.'

Marker Lions can't turn good bounces into victory [5:14 AM]
Detroit Free Press reports: '"The coaches kept stressing for us to keep banging on this guy and he'll cough it up," Walker said. "We needed to get the ball back, so we were just trying to make one play at a time. I felt that I got a pretty good shot on him. . . ."'

Marker Patience lets Bledsoe, Bills' receivers pass Lions by [5:13 AM]
Detroit Free Press reports: '"When teams decide that they want to double (Moulds), they leave me in single coverage," said Price, who celebrated his 26th birthday with four catches for 101 yards and a touchdown. "The last two or three teams have doubled both of us, but we still find ways to make plays and that's what we did today."'

Marker Lions have ways to go on the road to respect [5:13 AM]
Detroit Free Press reports: 'If you can't get a yard when you need it, you don't deserve a victory.'

Marker Joey feels more growing pains [5:12 AM]
Detroit Free Press reports: 'Aside from his debut as an NFL starter when he completed 15 of 35 passes and was intercepted four times against Green Bay, Harrington had his toughest game as the Lions' No. 1 quarterback.'

Marker Three wishes [5:11 AM]
Detroit Free Press reports: 'After an earlier loss, coach Marty Mornhinweg said the outcome might have been different if you took away only a few plays. Sunday, it might have been three...'

Marker Too little, too late - again [5:10 AM]
Detroit Free Press reports: 'Give the Lions credit for one thing: At least they looked better than Buffalo, uniformwise. Even with Drew Bledsoe, the Bills sure looked a lot like Grey Cup contenders.'

Marker Bills sock Lions with 12th road loss [5:10 AM]
Detroit News reports: 'The Bills' ability to dominate the passing game was critical. They went after cornerback Todd Lyght often.'

Marker Hold applause for Lions until they learn how to win on road [5:09 AM]
Detroit News reports: 'But does any of it -- any of the apparent improvement, any of the increased competitiveness -- matter if you can't get the last yard?'

Marker Lions' inability to defend against the pass played large part in loss [5:08 AM]
Detroit News reports: 'The obvious problem was that the Lions couldn't get a first down on two plays on their last possession. But their inability to cover the Bills' receivers -- Eric Moulds and Peerless Price -- was their biggest weakness throughout the game.'

Marker Lions are stopped short [5:07 AM]
Detroit News reports: '"London Fletcher made a good play," Stewart said. "He's already about 5-2. For me to get under his shoulder pads, that's something that's hard to do."'

Marker Bills' Fletcher makes big play [5:07 AM]
Detroit News reports: '"It's a lot of fun," Moulds said. "However, I think at the end of the game, we were flat. Drew got kind of mad at us, and he really motivated us to finish the game the way we started. I think we need to learn how to close games out. I think that has been a problem for us. We need to finish what we start."'

Marker Lions report [5:06 AM]
Detroit News reports: 'In the fourth quarter, the Lions were called for three penalties on the same play -- an offside and two infractions for unnecessary roughness. The Bills accepted one roughing penalty, on linebacker Barrett Green, for 15 yards.'

Marker Mike O'Hara grades the Lions [5:04 AM]
Detroit News reports: 'On the fourth-down play that was stopped, the Lions might have gone to the same play once too often.'

Marker Bledsoe Bowl buildup next in line [5:03 AM]
Boston Herald reports: '``The soap opera is going to start (today),'' said linebacker Tedy Bruschi, who will face off against his former teammate Sunday when the Patriots travel to Buffalo to face the Bills. ``Everyone is going to have their comparisons, Bledsoe and (Tom) Brady. I think if we just realize Buffalo has a good football team with a lot of weapons, we'll be a lot better off. As hard as it's going to be, we have to treat it as another football game.'''

Marker Week 8: Bills-Lions Postgame Quotebook [8:24 PM] reports: Gregg Williams: "We win as a team and we lose as a team.

Marker Week 8: Eric Moulds Postgame Quotes [6:24 PM] reports: Do you know that you guys have won three in a row? "It's a lot of fun. However, I think at the end of the game we were flat.
