Marker For Bengals, wins as elusive as joy [8:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"It's really tough," cornerback Artrell Hawkins said. "We don't get to put W's in the moral victory column. We don't want to. . . . Once again, we played a game that we were in and we didn't finish like we should have. We're going to get to that."'

Marker Win is more a relief than cause for celebration [8:58 AM]

Marker There's no running from fact Moulds is dynamic [8:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'It'll be interesting to see where Gilbride takes it from here, whether he'll finally relent and make a true commitment to the running game. A team cannot survive by the passing game alone. Nor can it play the Bengals every week.'

Marker Moulds, Adams not concerned over injuries [8:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Moulds' injury appears to be more serious. He suffered a pulled groin muscle on a pass reception in overtime. Moulds stayed on the field for Travis Henry's winning touchdown but appeared to be in serious pain as he was helped into the locker room by the Bills' trainers.'

Marker Monday Billboard [8:57 AM]

It set up Rian Lindell's 29-yard field goal, sending the game into overtime.'

Marker Effort is there; so is a loss [8:04 AM]

Marker Spikes has empathy for Bengals after latest loss [8:02 AM]
Columbus Dispatch reports: '"I understand how they feel," Spikes said. "I totally do. Especially the guys who were there before and the guys who were there when I came in. My heart goes out to a guy like Willie Anderson . . . Corey Dillon . . . Brian Simmons . . . Adrian Ross . . . . I wish them the best. I wish them the best."'

Marker Spikes felt 'weird,' emotional [7:09 AM]
Cincinnati Post reports: '"It was the Buffalo Bills against the Cincinnati Bengals," said Bengals linebacker Brian Simmons, who still remains as close to Spikes as when the two had lockers next to one another at Paul Brown Stadium. "You don't look at one person or one player; you're just focused on the game."'

Marker Bengals their own nemesis [7:08 AM]
Cincinnati Post reports: '"We're not winning games that we should or could win," said Artrell Hawkins. "We could have come here and won on the road and won two in a row, and all that stuff would have been great. They just outplayed us at the end."'

Marker Burris OK after brief scare [7:08 AM]
Cincinnati Post reports: 'Drew Bledsoe put aside being sacked four times and being held to under 100 yards passing through three quarters to deliver the 22nd come-from-behind victory of his career, and his third in 21 games with the Bills.

Marker Key play [7:07 AM]
Cincinnati Post reports: 'The Bills had converted just two of their 12 third downs when they lined up for a third-and-11 at their own 40 with 3:31 remaining in the fourth quarter and the Bengals leading, 16-13. Quarterback Drew Bledsoe, who had been sacked four times, was pressured but hung in the pocket long enough to complete a 14-yard pass to Bobby Shaw for the first down, a drive that eventually ended with a 29-yard Rian Lindell field goal to send the game into overtime.'

Marker Key player [7:06 AM]

Marker Coaching [7:04 AM]
Cincinnati Post reports: 'The team had opportunities to win and didn't capitalize on them. That has to fall back on the coaches.'

Marker Spikes sees change, but still glad he left [5:44 AM]
Cincinnati Enquirer reports: 'Spikes also chatted briefly with at least four other former teammates. Bengals coach Marvin Lewis went out of his way, jogging about 25 yards, to shake Spikes' hand. "He kind of surprised me," Spikes said of Lewis. "I know he doesn't dislike me. We never had any dislikes. He wished me good luck."'

Marker Burris said to be 'fine' after hit [5:43 AM]
Cincinnati Enquirer reports: 'The hit Sunday knocked him out cold. "All I remember is seeing Sam come out" of the backfield, Burris said. "I was trying to get a shot at him. The last thing I remember was holding up my thumb. The next thing I knew, I was in" the dressing room.'

Marker Bengals crumble in clutch [5:42 AM]
Cincinnati Enquirer reports: 'Until it mattered, Drew Bledsoe's offense ran like a Bl-Edsel. Until they had to have the win, the Buffalo Bills played as if they were afraid to lose, and maybe they were. Because the NFL's perception of the Bengals hasn't caught up to reality, even the possibility of losing to the erstwhile Bungles can cause throats to tighten.'

Marker Clemons keys strong D with 3 sacks [5:41 AM]
