Buffalo Bills News - September 12, 2014

Marker Robert Woods is asked if he's better than Sammy Watkins in interview with ESPN [1:51 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"I think he’s a good receiver," Woods said. "I wouldn’t say that he’s better, no."'

Marker Preston Brown prepared to replace Keith Rivers after stepping in for Nigel Bradham in Week 1 [1:50 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"It was very difficult for me, having to watch it on TV for the first time and not be a part of my team," Bradham said. "That was the first time that ever happened to me in my life. It's just one of those situations you never want to be in again."'

Marker Buffalo Bills tickets most expensive they've ever been before a regular-season game, resale site say [1:49 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'The buzz is growing around Orchard Park. In addition to the new owners, the Bills are also coming off a surprising 23-20 overtime win on the road against the Chicago Bears. The Dolphins, a longtime Bills rival, are also 1-0 after upsetting the Patriots in Week 1. Ticket prices for a Bills home game haven't been this pricey since 2012, when the Bills hosted the Patriots ($97 per ticket), according to SeatGeek.'

Marker Seantrel Henderson vs. Cameron Wake: Doug Marrone confident in rookie against Dolphins defensive end [1:48 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"I've seen a lot of quickness and explosiveness from him," Henderson said. "He obviously had a good game against New England. We've got guys like him on our team that I've been going up against all week, so I think I'm pretty ready to go against him."'

Marker Buffalo Bills fan sentenced to community service for fall from upper deck that hurt spectator [1:47 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'The game broadcast showed Hopkins sliding down a 300-level railing and falling to the 200 level of the stadium. Hopkins injured his shoulder, while the fan he landed on suffered a head injury.'

Marker Miami Dolphins secondary bracing for trio of speedy Buffalo Bills receivers [1:46 AM]
Miami Herald reports: 'That’s assuming E.J. Manuel is actually permitted to throw the ball. In the Bills’ 23-20 Week 1 upset in Chicago, Buffalo passed just 22 times – compared to 33 Bills runs. No Buffalo receiver had more than four catches. That figures to be the Bills’ strategy again Sunday, particularly with Miami’s banged up defense.'

Marker Dolphins OL might face biggest challenge of season vs. Buffalo [1:45 AM]
South Florida Sun Sentinel reports: 'Buffalo's four-man defensive line might be the best the Dolphins will see all season with Williams (13.0 sacks last season/Pro Bowl berth) and Jerry Hughes (10 sacks) on the ends, and tackles Kyle Williams (10.5 sacks) and Marcell Dareus (7.5 sacks/Pro Bowl berth) in the middle.'

Marker Five reasons I'm picking Dolphins 30, Bills 20 [1:44 AM]
South Florida Sun Sentinel reports: 'The Dolphins showed an effective 5-2 defense against New England - and Buffalo would be the perfect team to use it against. Dolphins defensive coordinator Kevin Coyle should have got more credit for playing to his strenghts (defensive linemen) and away from his weaknesses (linebackers) in the Patriots game. Getting tackles Earl Mitchell, Jared Odrick and Randy Starks in the game together should go a ways toward negating the Bills running game. It also would demand quarterback E.J. Manuel to carry the load and he hasn't shown an ability to do that (though he completed 16 of 22 passes for 173 yards, a touchdown, an interception an 91.7 rating in the opener).'

Marker Bills fan who fell on man gets community service [1:42 AM]
AP reports: 'He could have received up to a year in jail at his sentencing Thursday evening in Orchard Park Town Court. Instead, the judge imposed community service and a $1,000 fine.'

Marker Dolphins-Bills Preview [1:41 AM]
AP reports: 'Spiller, Jackson and their teammates might have to work a little harder against Miami, which limited New England to 89 rushing yards, its lowest rushing total against the Dolphins in 12 games dating to the 2008 season.'

Marker Dolphins-Bills capsule [1:40 AM]
AP reports: 'Bills swept season series last year for first time since 2007, winning both games with backup QB Thad Lewis starting in place of injured rookie EJ Manuel. Lewis was cut two weeks before start of this season.'

The Sports Network reports: 'Dolphins 24, Bills 14.'

Marker Wee 2 preview: Dolphins at Bills [1:38 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: 'Buffalo's underrated backfield presents a major challenge for Miami's injury-dinged defense but the Bills' fortunes come down to error-free play from QB EJ Manuel, who must show he won't fold when the Dolphins force quick decisions from the pocket.'

Marker Bills Gameplan: How to Attack the Dolphins [1:37 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'The Bills ran the ball for 193 yards against the Bears. They popped off 5.85 yards per run, 4th best in the NFL after one weekend. The Dolphins allowed 4.45 yards per run last week (18th in NFL) and will most likely now be without ALL THREE starting linebackers against the Bills. Phillip Wheeler and Koa Misi appear to be out, and Dannell Ellerbe was placed on IR, ending his season.'

Marker Upon Further Review: Bills at Bears [1:36 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Despite the solid performance, Manuel also showed some of his negative tendencies from last year. On a first quarter throw, Manuel failed to look up field after his first read and settled for a dump down to fullback Frank Summers. Had he kept his eyes up, he would have noticed a wide open Woods in the same line of vision.'

Marker Lee Smith returns to Bills practice [1:35 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Smith suffered a toe injury on August 23 and hasn’t been able to practice with the Bills since that day. In that time, he has been improving steadily and at least in his mind, is nearing a return.'

Marker Bills 2014 home opener sold out [1:34 AM] reports: 'Bills founding owner Ralph C. Wilson, Jr., will be honored in a pregame ceremony. Stadium gates open at 11:30 a.m. and fans are encouraged to get to their seats early. The first 50,000 fans will receive a commemorative “RCW” window cling in the seating areas, mirroring the “RCW” patch worn on the team’s jerseys during the 2014 season in Ralph C. Wilson, Jr.’s honor.'

Marker 10 things you may not know about the Bills-Dolphins rivalry [1:33 AM] reports: 'Everyone remembers Dolphins LB Bryan Cox’s famous double barrel salute to Bills fans in Orchard Park before a Bills-Dolphins game in 1995 as well as his spitting in the direction of fans who were heckling him. What many don’t remember is after Cox and Bills’ FB Carwell Gardner were both ejected for fighting during the game, there was almost a round two in the tunnel between the two locker rooms.'

Marker Pegulas are in the big time with NFL [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Most fans are so relieved to know the Bills aren’t going anywhere, they don’t care how Kim and Terry go about their business. Pegula could hire clowns and Kardashians to run it and people would nod their approval.'

Marker Gilmore feeling better, could return against Dolphins [1:57 AM]

Olean Times Herald reports: 'Of the nearly 850 games — regular and post-season — played by the Buffalo Bills in the franchise’s 55-year history, with due respect to that iconic comeback against Houston in the 1992 playoffs, none ultimately will be as important as a date. As in, Sept. 9, 2014.'

Marker 5 things we can learn about how Terry Pegula will handle Buffalo Bills based on his time with Sabres [1:53 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'Not only did the Buffalo Sabres spend big in free agency during Pegula's first offseason as owner, but he has shown a willingness to spend his money to upgrade the First Niagara Center and give the fans the best game experience. The fact that Pegula was willing to pay $1.4 billion to buy the Bills is another sign that money won't be an issue under the new ownership.'

Marker What Doug Marrone, Buffalo Bills players were saying about Pegulas buying the team [1:52 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'Obviously it's an exciting time for all of us. First of all, it gives us an opportunity really to say thanks to Mr. Wilson and what he has done for the region, the organization, the fans and the league, really, when you think of it. I think the person that might get lost in this, I know personally I want to thank Mary Wilson. During this time, she's been outstanding. I can only imagine what she's going through, the emotion. She's been great with me and great with the coaches. It's really been outstanding.'

Marker Doug Marrone talks about the Pegulas, the Dolphins and the Buffalo Bills new karma [1:51 AM]
