Buffalo Bills News - September 26, 2016

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."'

Marker How coach John Blake used '93 Cowboys to motivate Bills before win over Cardinals [1:26 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'That made Blake the perfect candidate to deliver the Bills' Saturday night speech before they dominated the Arizona Cardinals with a 33-18 beatdown at New Era Field. That 1993 Cowboys team beat the Cardinals, too. And they also went on to win the Super Bowl.'

Marker Bills injury report: Ronald Darby, Sammy Watkins among inactives against Cardinals [1:25 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'That leaves either rookie Kevon Seymour or cornerback Corey White to fill in at cornerback, while Robert Woods, Marquise Goodwin, Brandon Tate and Walt Powell are the wide receivers left for the Bills. Adding to the challenge for the offense, Cyrus Kouandjio will play left tackle in place of Cordy Glenn while going up against dominant pass rusher Chandler Jones.'

Dunkirk Observer reports: '"Well they played the first two games very differently," Palmer said. "They played this one a lot different than the first two (games), definitely different than the second one. But a lot of the same coverages we saw played when they were in Baltimore Week 1, some of the same stuff that they were doing last week and then some of the stuff that we expected to see. What they did last week, they just didn't do (Sunday)."'

Marker Taylor, Buffalo Bills run over Arizona Cardinals to win 33-18 [1:18 AM]
Newport News Daily Press reports: '"I just think that if you don't use it, it's a mistake. Because I know how difficult it is to defend against a running quarterback," Bills head coach Rex Ryan said. "That's something that we have that's unique about our football team, to have a guy that's the fastest quarterback in the league."'

Marker Bills may have saved Rex Ryan’s job with rout of Cardinals [1:17 AM]

In their first game since promoting running backs coach Anthony Lynn to replace fired offensive coordinator Greg Roman, the Bills gained 209 yards on the ground after totaling 151 in the season's first two games.'

Marker Bills' secondary atones for dismal effort, decks Cards [1:12 AM]

Marker Bills Never Trail; Beat Cardinals 33-18 [1:10 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'The Bills would come out for the second half with the same aggressiveness that they started the game by forcing the Cardinals to go three-and-out on their first possesion. After another poor punt by the Cardinals to give the Bills excellent field position, the Bills would once again find the endzone this time by a 20-yard Tyrod Taylor touchdown scramble.'

Marker Bills defense comes up big [1:09 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Give Rex and the defensive staff credit for coming up with a new look to baffle Palmer and company. The Bills used a seven defensive back personnel grouping a number of times in the game and it derailed Arizona’s passing game. They also did it while playing without starting cornerback Ronald Darby who was inactive due to a hamstring injury. At halftime, the big three passing weapons of Larry Fitzgerald, Michael Floyd and John Brown had combined for just three catches on 12 targets for 20 yards.'

Marker That's what's called a team win [1:08 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Arizona didn’t get its first first down until there was 9:25 left in the second quarter. At that point the total yardage was 186-7. By the end of the game, Arizona outgained Buffalo 348-296, but the Bills only turned the ball over once while Arizona had four picks against and a botched field goal attempt that was ruled a lost fumble by Drew Butler.'

Marker Bills-Cards: Arrow Up/Arrow Down [1:07 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Regardless if it was the right move to fire Greg Roman, and regardless if he's the right head coach long-term, Ryan got his team ready to play - and play well - after all that happened since last Friday. A lot of distractions. A lot of pressure. A very good opponent and staring 0-3 in the face. It would have been easy to pack up the helmets and shoulder pads and go home. Yet, Rex's Bills not only kept it together, they rallied behind one another for a big victory.'

Marker Bills offense, defense find its groove in 33-18 win over Cardinals [1:06 AM]
