Marker Williams: Have to have a 'stone wall mentality' [1:41 AM]
WGR-AM reports: '"If we allowed opinions, or if it's media or if it's other people that talk bad about us to get into the mindset of our team, it would be a very, very bad thing," Williams said on the John Murphy Show on Thursday afternoon. "We have to be stone-walled, we have to be strong minded to say, 'You know what, this is a long season.' Every week is a different challenge. Last week, everybody wanted to talk about Rex's record against [Ryan Fitzpatrick" target="_blank"> and all that kind of stuff. What happened? They out executed us with what they were doing. One week is not the same as the next. We're heading into this week, stone wall mentality, we're going to put our work in and we're not gonna let anything affect us."'

Marker 5 takeaways from Bills HC Rex Ryan (9/22/16) [1:38 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'This is a fairly brutal stretch of games over the next three weeks, at home against Arizona, on the road against New England, and then traveling all the way out west to take on the Los Angeles Rams. The Bills, at best, can only get to 2-3 on the year through this stretch, but a 1-4 or even an 0-5 start seems more logical based on the opponents, and the location of those opponents. It’s not quite panic time at One Bills Drive, but unless they put out the early flames, this could turn into an all-out five alarm fire.'

Marker Playing fast the aim for Bills offense [1:37 AM] reports: '“I just know that when you’re playing at a faster pace you put more pressure on a defense over four quarters and that’s what we’re going to do,” Lynn said.'
