Marker Bills try to snap home losing streak, and 5 things to watch in Week 7 [1:53 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'Last week, Sammy Watkins was targeted only three times in the passing game. That had to do more with the matchup against Patriots cornerback Darrelle Revis than it did with Watkins' play, but it's time for the Bills to let loose with Watkins. Marrone admitted that they should have had Watkins as the primary read more often in Week 6. Expect to see that on Sunday.'

Marker Thurmal Energy [1:52 AM]
Gloversville Leader Herald reports: 'Thomas said he usually does three or four signings a year for business openings in the Buffalo area, and he enjoys meeting the fans. "They let you know one thing - how long people have been holding on to stuff," he said. "For me, it's not even about signing the autographs; It's about seeing the Bills fans and where they are."'

Marker Vikings out of excuses in preparing to play Bills [1:51 AM]
AP reports: 'Buffalo has been held to fewer than 100 yards rushing in four straight games after doing that just five times last season. The Bills' two touchdowns rushing are the fewest to open a season since scoring one through seven games in 2010.'

Marker Bills WR Goodwin out vs. Vikings [1:50 AM]
AP reports: 'Receiver Marcus Easley (knee) is also out, giving the Bills only four healthy receivers.'

Marker Scouting Report: Vikings at Bills [1:49 AM]
AP reports: 'In the last three games Buffalo has not only had less production running the ball, they also have called fewer run plays. In 2013 the Bills ran the ball more than 49 percent of the time. Over the last three weeks they’ve run the ball just over 35 percent of the time (35.5%). The offense has to get back to a more even balance to control the pace of the game, more effectively set up play action and finish off scoring drives.'

Marker Preaching consistency, Bills DB coach says heat on Gilmore ''well-deserved'' by Joe Buscaglia [1:48 AM]
WGR-AM reports: '“Absolutely. And we talk about that, too,” he continued. “If you want to be a shutdown corner in this league, you've got to play technique and you gotta play your guy. That's how we talk about it in my room. I don't beat around the bush. I tell them straight that if you want to be a shutdown corner, you take your man out of it by working technique and making sure you get yours covered.”'

Marker Bills Gameplan: How to Attack the Vikings [1:47 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'We all know the Bills have struggled mightily in their interior offensive line, especially running the football. But I think it would be a mistake to go away from trying to pound the football this week and taking advantage of a Vikings defense that has allowed at least 150 yards on the ground already twice this season. It’s obviously incumbent upon the Bills OL to be better in order to do that.'

Marker Bills down another WR vs Vikings [1:46 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Defensive tackle Kyle Williams (knee), linebacker Brandon Spikes (ribs), safety Da’Norris Searcy (knee) and long snapper Garrison Sanborn also received the ‘probable’ designation, reserved for players that have at least a 75-percent chance of playing in the upcoming game.'

Marker WR Travis Harvey added to Practice Squad [1:45 AM] reports: 'A 6-2, 185-pound Florida A&M product, Harvey entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the Tennessee Titans in 2013 before being released prior to the regular season. He then joined the New York Giants at the start of the 2014 offseason and was released prior to the start of the regular season. A native of Inglewood, CA, Harvey played in 11 games with 10 starts during his senior collegiate campaign and was named first-team All-MEAC after ranking 2nd on the Rattlers with 64 receptions and led the team with 808 receiving yards and 7 touchdown receptions.'

Marker Buffalo Bills working Cyrus Kouandjio at guard; Doug Marrone says starters need to improve [1:52 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"From any of the players that haven’t been playing — I’d rather put it that way — I see him as one of the most improved from what you’ve seen in the preseason and what you’ve seen of him when you watched it," Marrone said. "His movement skills right now, it’s truly been a 180 from what we saw in the preseason. I’m really excited about that. Now, since that has increased, we’re looking to see where we can develop him and where he can fit."'
