Marker Ryan moving on after loss to Dolphins [10:14 AM]
Olean Times Herald reports: '“It’s a huge challenge. I want to say it now because Tom Brady’s playing … just kidding,” Ryan said. “But, in all seriousness, we’re going to measure ourselves against the two best now (Buffalo plays at Seattle the following Monday). We’re going to find out all about us. After a game like this, where we clearly never played – or coached – as good as we need to, the ultimate test is right in front of us.”'

Marker Analysis: Missed tackles played a big part in Jay Ajayi running all over Bills [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The analytics website Pro Football Focus charged the Bills with a whopping 16 missed tackles against the Dolphins, bringing their season total to 57 ­– fourth most in the NFL.

Marker Rex Ryan not backtracking on decision to play LeSean McCoy [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"The decision to play LeSean, as I mentioned was, he got clearance from medical personnel. That’s a variety of tests – tons of tests," Ryan said. "The player needs to sign off on it, so it’s not just, ‘Hey, the medical says you’re OK. You’re going out there.’ So LeSean wanted to play. He felt like he was ready to play. We took him to pregame and he was running routes at full speed and burst and things like that.'

Marker Pats have a way of ruining your sweep dreams [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Going back to 2001 season, the year Tom Brady took over as the quarterback, the Patriots have never lost twice to a team in the AFC East in the regular season. On Sunday at New Era Field, the Bills will attempt to become the first division opponent to sweep them since 2000, Bill Belichick's first year as head man.'

Marker Rex Ryan's Monday presser after the Dolphins loss [1:55 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Alright obviously you know I talked about the game after it happened nothing really changed. You know we were still in the game and like I mentioned yesterday even though we were up by 11 points in the second half it never felt like we were in control of the game because we were getting out played, out coached whatever you say it never felt like we were in control of the game. I thought Miami was in control of the game and at the end of the day we need to make more plays on offense, defense and they made more than we did and that is why we won.'

Marker Rex Ryan: Landry hit was 'dirty' and 'unnecessary' [1:54 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '“Did he target? Did he launch? Yeah, he did all those, check every box you want,’’ Ryan said. “Was it a dirty hit? Yeah. It was unnecessary … and unsportsmanlike. I thought the officials got it right; it was unnecessary roughness. A football play, he came in for a crack block, but there was nothing physical about it. I was surprised he did it and I’m absolutely disappointed. Now I have a player who’s in jeopardy. I don’t understand it.’’'

Marker Bills were beaten on both sides up front [1:53 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'More disturbing to Rex Ryan, I’m sure, was the way his defense was pushed around by the Dolphins offensive line. Miami shredded the Bills for 256 yards rushing, much of that with Jay Ajayi running through massive holes. And the Buffalo pass rush was pretty much neutralized as the lone sack came from Lorenzo Alexander.'

Marker Breaking down Shaq Lawson's Buffalo Bills debut against Dolphins in Week 7 [1:52 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"It was great to be out there and go out and get my feet wet," Lawson said after the game. "It's been a long time since I played a game, so I didn't know what the feeling was playing a game."'

Marker Buffalo Bills' Aaron Williams thanks fans and friends for thoughts and prayers [1:51 AM]

Marker Bills’ Rex Ryan upset with hit on Aaron Williams during Miami loss [1:49 AM]
Batavia Daily News reports: '“A head or neck injury is as severe of an injury as you can get. He’ll never hit the field if he wasn’t cleared by professionals,” Ryan said.'

Marker Gase won't ask Landry to change the way he plays after dangerous high hit [1:48 AM]
Miami Herald reports: '"I know the way Jarvis plays, it's going to be aggressive, it's going to be intense," Gase added. "For anybody to kind of start thinking, 'dirty play,' and things like that, I've been around the guys for less than a year. I haven't seen that from him. I've see a guy who when we coach him up on things, tries to do things the right way."'

Marker Dolphins acknowledge Landry's hit was too high, but say it wasn't dirty [1:47 AM]
South Florida Sun Sentinel reports: '"It was a good call, it was a penalty," Christensen said. "We can't go high. The league is emphasizing that." But Gase said it wasn't a dirty play. He also said he likes Landry's edge. "I'm not going to change the way he plays," Gase said. "I call plays early in the game for him to set the tempo."'

Marker Bills coach Ryan calls Landry's hit on Williams 'dirty' [1:46 AM]
AP reports: '"Call it what you want," Landry said. "It's football."'

Marker Ryan's Bills bullied at line of scrimmage by Miami [1:45 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: '"We got out-physicaled on both sides of the ball, which is rare for us, but it happened," Ryan said. "Obviously, we got outplayed, we got outcoached, we got out-everything'd. They were a more physical team today, there's no doubt about that. They controlled the game and that's why they won the game."'

Marker First-round pick Lawson finally debuts for Bills [1:44 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: '"I thought I had him," Lawson said. "It's going to come. Just be patient. I was kind of anxious at first, so I just had to settle down. I was just trying to stay focused and stay calm."'

Marker Rex Ryan: Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry should've been tossed [1:43 AM]
ESPN reports: '"Yeah, it was totally unnecessary," Ryan said Monday. "Did [Landry] target, did he launch? Yeah, he did all those. You can check every box you want. Was it a dirty hit? Yeah. It was unnecessary. And as I see it, it was unsportsmanlike."'

Marker Bills threw me some curve balls [1:42 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'The biggest problem with this loss is that it made me immediately think the Bills will be 4-5 after the next two games. I didn't think this was a lock it in win like San Francisco the week before but its a game I thought the Bills should be able to get and was one of those wins in the "how do I get them to 10 victories" discussion.'

Marker A Terrible Loss [1:41 AM]
Bills Daily reports: Well, THAT happened. It’s never easy to see the Bills get dominated by an opponent, but it wasn’t the first time it happened and it won’t be the last. As a fan it does shake you back to reality from the snuggly warmth of a four game winning streak. I’ve enjoyed Buffalo’s streak, but I was wary that it could come to a sudden end, and Sunday in Miami was that end.

Marker Bills telecast is Bizarro World of spins, a fake out, brief return of Super Mario [1:24 PM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Early in the Bills’ 28-25 loss to Miami, one guy on Twitter called them CBS’ “D Team” of announcers. Actually, they are considered No. 7 out of eight CBS teams, which apparently illustrates what the network thought of the Bills’ four-game winning streak. But like Alexander and Brown, the announcers performed better than expected.'

Buffalo News reports: '“I didn’t see it. I heard about it, and I thought ‘that’s garbage,’ ” Bills center Eric Wood said. “Who knows if he knows he’s had prior neck injuries, but we’ll see if he gets fined more for that than the guys dancing.”'

Marker Shady decision to let McCoy play in Miami [12:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'But I don't need to watch film to know this: LeSean McCoy should not have been on the field at Hard Rock Stadium. A week earlier, McCoy was being touted for MVP. Against the Dolphins, he was MIA. Running on a hamstring that he'd tweaked in practice on Wednesday, McCoy was a shell of himself on a day when the Bills desperately needed a running game.'

Marker It was a reckless crackback block. That's when I stopped watching. [12:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Landry lined up wide left at the 11-yard line and veered at Williams on a run play to the left.
