Marker With game hanging in balance, Bills knew how to close out the Broncos [1:28 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '“We had a chance to win that game at the end and we came up short,” wide receiver Jordan Matthews said of the Bills’ 9-3 loss to the Panthers, a point I could not agree with more. “We have to capitalize on our opportunities, and in this game, we did that. We put ourselves in a position to win, and that’s all you can ask for.”'

Marker Maiorana: On paper, Broncos had the advantages, but Bills better on the field [1:27 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Look around the league; this type of thing happened all day. The Saints routed the Panthers, the Jaguars crushed the Ravens, the Jets — yes, the Jets — embarrassed the Dolphins, the Bears beat the Steelers, and the Texans very nearly shocked the Patriots before falling in the dying seconds to that guy named Tom Brady who is just never going to go away.'

Marker Von Miller's 'handiwork' included one very costly penalty for Broncos [1:26 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '“I just wasn’t thinking,’’ said Miller, who finished with six tackles, a sack, two QB hits and two tackles for loss. “I don’t even do anything with quarterbacks but I know Tyrod and we were kind of laughing and joking through the whole game. On that play, I just made a very crucial mistake at a vital time.’’'

Marker Buffalo Bills players kneel and Pegulas react to Donald Trump's NFL statements [1:25 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Driving up to the stadium, several people who allow people to park their cars in their yards were waving fans into their driveway with American flags in their hand. Several flags were flapping in the warm breeze in the stadium parking lots, and once the fans began filing into the stadium, it is expected that there will be plenty of red, white and blue, and not just because those are the Bills’ colors.'

Marker NFL national anthem protests: Sometimes a man just can't stand for it anymore [1:24 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: ' “Obviously, it was in response to our president’s comments, calling people who protest SOBs," Alexander said. “For me, with the backdrop being Charlottesville and calling neo-Nazis and KKK members fine people, making that comparison and drawing a hard line on NFL players for doing something peaceful, it really touched me.’’'

Marker Buffalo Bills report card: Tyrod Taylor bucks Broncos and benching talk in win over Denver [1:23 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Tyrod Taylor completed 76.9 percent of his passes (20 of 26 for 213 yards), a performance that was certainly unexpected given the fact that Von Miller rushes the passer for Denver, and Aqib Talib plays cornerback. But Taylor was sharp, particularly in the second half when he was 6 of 8 and led the Bills to the final 13 points of the game. On the second TD drive, he threw dimes to Nick O’Leary and Jordan Matthews and finished it with a nice throw in the end zone to Charles Clay after he baited the defense into thinking he was running.'

Marker Buffalo bounces back [1:22 AM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'And no matter how the Broncos’ season unfolds, what’s certain is that the Bills, in their third game under new head coach Sean McDermott, earned a major degree of credibility in their 26-16 victory before 68,865 sun-baked witnesses yesterday afternoon.'

Marker Miller’s handshake joke backfires on Broncos [1:21 AM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'After knocking Taylor down legally, Miller extended a hand to help the Buffalo signal caller back to his feet. He then yanked it away — literally pulling the age-old “too slow” move — drawing one of the most amusing, and foolish, unsportsmanlike conduct penalties you’ll see all season.'

Marker Von Miller feels he costs Broncos the game against Bills with dumb penalty [1:18 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"I can't put my team in situations like that," Miller said after the game. "I brought us home many times, I've closed games fifty million times. I've got to be smarter than that. I'm always on the rookies and all the young guys (about) 'being smart and doing this and doing that'. Then I go out there and do something like that, in a crucial situation in the game, I've just got to be better than that. It hits you in the stomach. I haven't been in situations (like that) since my rookie season. One thing about it, I'm always, regardless, I always learn from my mistakes, I just can't kill us. I killed the game today with that penalty. I've just got to be better than that, and I will be better than that."'

Marker National media reacts to Von Miller's 'ridiculous' penalty against Buffalo Bills [1:17 AM]

Marker Report card: Buffalo Bills earn high marks after stunning Denver Broncos [1:16 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Tyrod Taylor didn't rack up the yards against the Broncos, but he was efficient on Sunday. Taylor completed 20-of-26 passes for 213 yards and two touchdowns. The quarterback also picked up a crucial first down late in the game with his feet. Denver applied a lot of pressure to Taylor throughout Sunday's game, but the quarterback did a great job of taking what was available in front of him.'

Marker Buffalo Bills 'not really' seeing urgency from Marcell Dareus at all times [1:15 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"I am told he is in a make-or-break year for the Buffalo Bills, needs to show this administration he is in fact all in, to stay with this team," Rapoport said of Dareus on NFL Network's Gameday Morning. "This is the same Marcell Dareus who got sent home for the third week of the preseason for violating a team rule. He does have a tough contract to get out from under, but this is a player -- a really good player -- who needs to show the team a lot during this 2017 season."'

Marker What Bills coach Sean McDermott said after big upset win over Broncos [1:14 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'You know, they’ve done a great job. I mean, they’re playing well. We had a couple plays today that got away from us but they are a resilient bunch. They really are. If it’s not the front getting after the quarterbacks, somebody else is making a big play for us in the back seven. They play as a team, which that’s how you play good defense in football. You play as a team and they did a good job of feeding off of one another and really just doing their job, being one-eleventh of the defense. '

Marker Bills RB LeSean McCoy joined protest because Donald Trump is 'acting like a jerk' [1:13 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"Well, the flag, the national anthem means a lot to me, to my teammates," McCoy said. "We had a long meeting on Saturday night, and I was very bothered by the comments of our president of this country. As a president, you're supposed to lead us, you're supposed to bring us together. You're supposed to lead this country. I can't stand and support something where our leader of this country is acting like a jerk."'

Marker Richie Incognito proud of how Bills came together after Donald Trump comments [1:12 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"I think it comes from leadership," Incognito said. "I think it comes from the top down. I think it comes from Sean. The same consistent message. Having an open forum, letting guys talk about it and not just ignoring the fact that all of this stuff is going on. I think coach did a really good job of addressing it. The team leaders did a really good job of talking this thing out. I think when you're able to do that, you're able to put it to the side and focus on the task at hand."'

Marker What Buffalo Bills are saying about why they took knee during national anthem [1:11 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '45 (President Trump) is going to say those things and, as disturbing as that is, that’s not what our leader is supposed to do. Our leader, especially of Americans, our leader of our country is supposed to be bringing everybody together, no matter race, no matter nationality, no matter religion. We’re here in this country as free people and we’re all here to be Americans. It doesn’t really matter. That’s how our country was brought up, so for 45 to divide the nation like that, it’s sad, but, you know, at the end of the day, you kind of expect it from our president.'

Marker Former Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan not happy about Donald Trump comments [1:06 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"There's so many things I admire about Mr. Trump, but one thing I really admire about him is, you know what, he'll say what's on his mind," Ryan said. "But so many times, you'll see people, a lot of people want to say the same thing. But there's a big difference. They don't have the courage to say it. They all think it, but they don't have the courage to say it.'

Marker NFL Week 4 odds, over/under: Bills open as big underdog Falcons [1:05 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'The Bills will travel to Atlanta to play the Falcons next week and have opened up as an eight-point underdog in the game. The Falcons have one of the league's best offenses and haven't shown too many ill effects from their devastating Super Bowl loss a year ago.'

Marker 5 takeaways from the Bills win over the Broncos [1:03 AM]
Batavia Daily News reports: 'Running game still stale: For all that was well in the passing game, it wasn’t really at all in the running game. LeSean McCoy was held under 50 yards and Mike Tolbert was the team’s leading rusher on the day. McCoy had nine yards on 12 carries a week ago. But interestingly enough, it appeared Denver employed the same plan they did against the Dallas Cowboys last week, shutting down the run game and daring the Bills to beat them through the air. They did.'

Auburn Citizen reports: 'Tyrod Taylor bounced back from last week's performance to have a solid outing against a tough Broncos defense. He completed 20 of 26 passes for 213 yards and two touchdowns. He added 13 rushing yards in the win. He was efficient. He didn't make any mistakes and didn't commit any turnovers. The best throw of the day was when he rolled out to his left and connected with tight end Nick O'Leary for a 31-yard gain. That's a difficult throw for any quarterback to make, but Taylor delivered.'

Marker John Dudley: Taylor, often on the move, leads Bills past Broncos [12:59 AM]
Erie Times News reports: '“Tyrod responded in a major way today,” said Bills running back LeSean McCoy, who was limited to 21 yards on 14 carries by a Broncos defense that focused its attention on stopping him and taking its chances with Taylor.'
