Buffalo Bills News - September 26, 2016

Marker Notebook: Kyle Williams turns in vintage performance; Aaron Williams savors first career TD, Sammy W [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“If it takes me getting my head beat in by three guys in the middle and we walk off the field like that, I’ll do it every week,” Williams said. “I played well enough for us to win, and that’s what I like.”'

Marker A nice win, but the Bills -- and Tyrod Taylor -- have a long way to go [1:55 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'OK, they won. It was a dream game for Ryan. People were writing his team off. He had his second terrific defensive game out of three, which reminds you that he knows a thing or two about defense. It was a victory right out of the old school handbook -- run and stop the run, get after the opposing quarterback and play good special teams.'

Marker Bills’ game plan plays to Taylor’s strengths [1:54 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The Bills are the only team in the NFL with a quarterback who plays with the elusiveness of Taylor. They rolled the dice with him when they signed him to a six-year contract extension worth $90 million. The contract includes escape clauses, but they also took a gamble on his health.'

Marker Mark Gaughan's Matchup Winners: Ryan & Co. take stretch out of Arians offense [1:53 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The Bills’ defensive tackle was all over the field and abused just about every lineman Arizona threw on the field.'

Marker Mark Gaughan's 10 Plays That Shaped the Game: Cards pay for failing to contain Tyrod [1:52 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Cardinals edge rusher Markus Golden rushed up-field to Taylor’s right and easily was shoved 5 yards behind the quarterback by Jordan Mills. Cardinals linebacker Kevin Minter, doing an Aaron Maybin impersonation (aka going 100 mph in the wrong direction), flew beyond the pocket on a blitz. The right side of the field was wide open and Taylor cruised into the end zone.'

Marker Vic Carucci's Take Five: Bills applied necessary heat, ran with authority [1:51 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The Bills hadn't shown that look in either if their previous two games, and Palmer and the Cardinals weren't ready for it.'

Marker Bucky Gleason's Hot Read: Bills reveal what had been missing [1:50 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The Cardinals were precisely the team the Bills needed to play if they wanted to pull themselves from misery. Super Bowl contenders? The Bills made them look like … they made them look the Bills did in the first two games. Buffalo trampled over Arizona in a 33-18 victory that gave their sun-soaked crowed reasons for optimism.'

Marker Jerry Sullivan's Hot Read: Maybe the Bills should fire someone every week [1:49 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'With Lynn using a more streamlined playbook and running plays at a quicker tempo, the Bills got their running game going, piling up 200 rushing yards and three touchdowns against an Arizona team that had shut down the Buccaneer the week before.'

Marker Jay Skurski's Hot Read: Bills fans can put the pitchforks away for at least a week [1:48 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The defense, playing without starting cornerback Ronald Darby, largely contained a potent Cardinals’ passing attack, with Stephon Gilmore recording two interceptions, and Corey White and Corey Graham adding one more each. The defense won’t come up with four interceptions every week, but it’s exactly what they needed for this one.'

Marker Mark Gaughan's Hot Read: With Lynn pushing right buttons, Bills get their mojo back [1:47 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'LeSean McCoy looked like his Pro Bowl self. With Lynn mixing the run and the pass to keep Arizona off balance, McCoy gashed a Cardinals defense that ranked sixth in the NFL against the run last season.'

Marker Insta-Graham: Only a fool would've counted out Bills against Cardinals [1:46 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Buffalo's defense was wicked at times. Arizona didn't earn a first down on its first five possessions. By the time Buffalo scored 17 points (4:35 into the second quarter), Arizona's offense traveled 7 yards.'

Marker Vic Carucci's Points After: Bills 33, Cardinals 18 [1:45 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The offense made Rex Ryan look like a genius for replacing offensive coordinator Greg Roman with Anthony Lynn after only two games. The players who helped persuade ownership to get aboard with the idea, and the owners themselves, also come out of this looking good. The defense made Ryan's declaration earlier in this week about the coaching prowess of his twin brother, Rob, spot on.'

Marker Jay Skurski's Report Card [1:44 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The numbers are eye-popping – 32 carries, 208 yards, 6.5 yards per rush.'

Marker Fourth quarter analysis: Bills put away Cards and keep season alive [1:43 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Stephon Gilmore had two picks while Corey Graham and Corey White had one while the Bills sacked Palmer four times in the game. Graham's interception put the Bills on their own 1-yard line, which led to a safety that made things interesting – especially after John Brown returned the free kick to the Bills' 14-yard line – but Gilmore came up with another interception to put the game away.'

Marker Third quarter analysis: Bills break game open after Cardinals' miserable fourth down [1:42 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'So Chandler Catanzaro went out for a field goal attempt, but a high snap went through holder Drew Butler’s hands. Aaron Williams recovered the ball and took it 53 yards for a touchdown to make it 30-7 Bills. It was the Cardinals’ first turnover of the season.'

Marker Second quarter analysis: Jerry Hughes penalty leads to Cardinals' first score [1:41 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The Bills would've gotten the ball back with about 7 minutes left in the quarter. Instead, the Cardinals drove down and scored on a David Johnson run with only 1:05 remaining before halftime. That cut the Bills' lead to 17-7.'

Marker First quarter analysis: Bills defense absolutely dominant as team jumps out to 10-0 lead [1:40 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The Bills had fourth-and-goal from the 1-yard line with the score still 0-0. Fans booed as Rex Ryan sent out the field goal team, but Dan Carpenter’s 19-yarder gave the Bills the lead.'

Marker All Bills stand during national anthem vs. Cardinals [1:39 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"I’d be ok with — ok, my feeling is, I think the National Football League gives you an incredible platform as it is," Ryan said. "And there’s guys in this room right now, if some of our players wanted to have a platform to speak with the media, then we’d allow that. There’s no doubt about it. I think, you know my personal opinion, I think the national anthem is an opportunity for us as a football team to show respect to the men and women that serve our country and have served our country. And I think that’s how I would approach it."'

Marker Sammy Watkins, Greg Salas, Ronald Darby all out against Cardinals [1:38 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Cornerback Ronald Darby, who suffered a hamstring injury in Week Two against the Jets and was limited in practice during the week, will also sit out. Other inactives include: left tackle Cordy Glenn (ankle), safety Colt Anderson (foot), quarterback Cardale Jones and center Patrick Lewis.'

Marker Bills-Cardinals postgame transcripts of Rex Ryan, Tyrod Taylor, LeSean McCoy, Bruce Arians, Carson P [1:37 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'We know we only have one win and obviously we’ve got a huge task in front of us but we’re going to enjoy this one because we’re going to enjoy the fact that we know what everybody thought of our football team and we knew that we were a better football team than that.'

Marker Bills pull off shocker and deck Cards 33-18 [1:36 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Rather than getting pummeled by the Arizona Cardinals as everyone expected, the exact opposite transpired as the Bills rolled to a stunning 33-18 victory in front of an electric, sun-drenched sellout crowd.'

Marker Sheriff’s Office reports one arrest at Bills game [1:35 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'A fan was arrested on a larceny charge for trying to shoplift from the Bills Store, the Sheriff’s spokesman, Scott Zylka, said. He did not have details on what the fan had attempted to steal.'

Marker Bills defense the one flying in Cardinals victory [1:34 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'That plan of Rex Ryan and his staff called for using up to seven defensive backs at times, a plan that became full-proof even against the likes of Palmer, Larry Fitzgerland and Michael Floyd when the Bills took a 30-7 lead in the third quarter of their make-or-break showdown against the Cardinals at New Era Field.'

Marker Bills stage Roman holiday with win over Cardinals [1:33 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'That, to me, just reinforced the obvious: That Ryan sacrificed a good coach and any friendship the two might have shared in the name of business. But desperate times call for desperate measures and in the NFL, when a ship is taking on water, there's more loyalty among pirates.'

Marker Sure didn't see this Bills victory coming [1:32 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Cornerback Corey White. He started in place of injured Ronald Darby, and though Palmer went his way a whole bunch — as evidenced by the nine tackles White was credited with — he did a pretty solid job against a talented group of Arizona wide receivers. He capped his day with an end zone interception on the Cardinals’ final possession which sealed the verdict.'

Marker Report card [1:31 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'This was an impressive performance all the way across the board. And as much as it might hurt the Rex Ryan haters to admit it, he had the Bills ready to play against all odds. You can’t deny that. There were a lot of things conspiring against the Bills, not the least of which was the possibility of their season blowing up before the end of the September. It certainly wasn’t perfect, but the Bills beat a good Arizona team that no one thought they had a chance against.'

Marker How Anthony Lynn sparked Bills' offensive turnaround after Greg Roman's firing [1:30 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"All week, I guess the message was we were simplifying, but as we installed, I was thinking, 'I don't want to say it in the media, but I hope guys aren't taking this lightly,' because we have to study still," center Eric Wood said. "Good work by Anthony preparing, getting thrown into the fire and coming out with a good game plan."'

Marker Dennis Thurman, not Rex Ryan, called defensive plays in Bills' win over Cardinals [1:29 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"Yeah, we were really, obviously, embarrassed by the type of play that we had last week, but we had to really look deep and try to help ourselves come up with different ways and change the look on them. Bruce Arians is a great coach, so we knew we weren't going to have the same plan that we had going into obviously the last game with. We were wanting them to think we did, but we were going to change everything and really try to keep them off balance. I think we did a great job. Dennis Thurman did a great job calling the game, and then my brother's contribution in the red zone looked pretty decent, I think."'

Marker What Rex Ryan, Bills said about crowd at New Era Field in win over Cardinals [1:28 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'I will say this, though, there were a lot of witnesses out there when you see our fans. Like they gave us a chance to win. I mean, they were so loud that it was like, alright, our fans never left us. And you guys know that have been here forever, through all the streak and stuff, that is the most loyal fan base there is, so that really helped us.'

Marker Minutes after Bills' win, Rex Ryan already joking about Patriots, Bill Belichick [1:27 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"That's what we have to be ready in case Edelman (is the quarterback), right?" Ryan said while answering a question about his own quarterback's mobility. "I have a funny feeling he isn't going to be Brady back there."'
