Marker Why Buffalo Bills OT Cameron Jefferson raised his fist during national anthem [1:50 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"Going to Philly, I saw him across the field and I felt inspired to do the same and follow suit," Jefferson said Friday at his locker. "I feel like it's my duty as an athlete with my platform to do anything I can to help people in need against police brutality in the black and brown communities. I was already thinking about it but something in my gut and my spirit said, 'Go ahead, Cam. You can do it.'"'

Marker Buffalo Bills coach Sean McDermott reinforces confidence in QB Tyrod Taylor [1:49 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"We're always going to evaluate everything and that goes for every position, including the quarterback position," McDermott said Thursday night at Lincoln Financial Field. "I thought Tyrod's done some good things. Last week he moved the offense and we had some penalties. We're going to evaluate the film. I have to evaluate the job I did tonight and then we can evaluate the job that each of us did and continue to get better as a unit."'

Marker 8 numbers that stand out from the Buffalo Bills' loss to Philadelphia Eagles [1:48 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Only eight players finished Thursday night's game against the Eagles with more tackles than Tyrod Taylor. The Bills quarterback had as many tackles as he had interceptions in an outing to forget.'

Marker Assessing Buffalo Bills rookie class: A look at Zay Jones, Nathan Peterman, more [1:47 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'The Bills’ first-round pick looks the part so far. Tre’Davious White has taken every rep with the first-team defense since he arrived in Buffalo after the draft. He’s been consistently breaking up passes and has come down with a few interceptions in practice. The only blemish on his game has been his ability to return punts. He had trouble early in camp fielding the punts and won’t likely win that job.'

Marker McDermott clears the air: Tyrod is his man [1:46 AM]
Batavia Daily News reports: '“We’ll do a little more game planning this week as this is a little more of a mock for us,” McDermott said.'

Marker Bills coach McDermott reiterates support for Tyrod Taylor [1:45 AM]
AP reports: '"We're always going to evaluate everything, and that goes for everything including the quarterback position," McDermott had said, when asked if he would consider a change in quarterbacks after Taylor and the starting offense sputtered in playing most of the first half.'

Marker Sean McDermott still expects Tyrod Taylor to be Bills' starting QB [1:44 AM]
ESPN reports: '"Like I've always said, we always look at everything," McDermott said. "That goes for every position, not just the quarterback position, but every position. Nate has certainly had a good preseason and training camp, and he's going to continue to develop and get better. That said, Tyrod is going to start Saturday night, and I expect him to play and play well."'

Marker LeSean McCoy buys nearly $3,000 worth of cheesesteaks for Bills players [1:43 AM]
CBS Sports reports: 'Anyway, I'm not sure how the food got to the stadium, but if it was a delivery guy who had to take care of getting the 200 sandwiches to Lincoln Financial Field, let's hope McCoy tipped him more than 20 cents.'

Marker Go figure... a post about quarterbacks [1:42 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'But there are a few things to consider while the Bills stand their ground. As mentioned above, there's the way they've handled Taylor from the start. I believe it indicates that they view him more as a placeholder than a long-term solution.'

Marker Haven't we had this conversation before? [1:41 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'I’m sure pressures and knockdowns contributed to Taylor’s sub par performance as did the absence of the best receiver he had and the player with whom he had the best chemistry when it comes to the passing game. Say what you want about Sammy Watkins and his injury issues, that was one big security blanket that was shipped to Los Angeles. To steal the old cliche, you can see Taylor is not on the same page with Anquan Boldin, Zay Jones, Andre Holmes or anyone else not named Charles Clay.'

Marker McDermott says he envisions Tyrod Taylor starting Week 1 for the Buffalo Bills [1:40 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: '"We're always going to evaluate everything and that goes for every position, including the quarterback position," McDermott told reporters on Thursday night. "I thought Tyrod's done some good things. Last week he moved the offense and we had some penalties. We're going to evaluate the film. I have to evaluate the job I did tonight and then we can evaluate the job that each of us did and continue to get better as a unit."'

Marker McDermott: All the confidence in the world in Tyrod [1:39 AM] reports: '“We’ve got to do some things to get the offense on track, there’s no doubt about it. We’ve got to move the ball, move the chains, convert on third downs, which we didn’t do a good job, and then when we get into the red zone we’ve got to score touchdowns.'

Marker Bills Today: Position battles intensify versus Eagles [1:38 AM] reports: 'The longest spanning battles of the night occurred on the offensive line. At both right guard and right tackle, a rotation was evident for most of the game. John Miller started at right guard, while Jordan Mills started at right tackle. Every other series Vlad Ducasse would sub in at right guard, and Dion Dawkins would slide in at right tackle. This rotation continued into the third quarter.'

Marker Bills turn in another sloppy showing in 20-16 preseason loss to Eagles [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'After two preseason outings, there isn't much positive that can be said about Sean McDermott's team. And the 0-2 record in games that don't count would appear to be the least of its problems.'

Marker Tim Graham: So many Bills story lines, but penalties keep getting in the way [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'So I went into Thursday night's game against the Philadelphia Eagles intent on finding an angle to write about aside from penalties even though the referee was the magnificent Ed Hochuli.'

Marker Ian Seau pursues NFL dream, well aware of the risks five years after his uncle's suicide [1:55 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“A lot of people wouldn’t change the path that they’ve taken to get here. I know for a fact my uncle wouldn’t have changed his path,” he said. “ … When it gets to the point that I know to walk away, I’ll know to walk away.”'

Marker Sully's Mailbag: Don't invest hope in this year's Bills [1:54 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Still, it's clear that Beane is looking down the road. He has a long-term vision, same as the Sabres' new GM, Jason Botterril. In that sense, it's not "the same ole bs." There's an actual plan. It might be hard for fans to accept, but it's better than making rash moves to appease the masses.'

Marker Buffalo Bills coach Sean McDermott learning avoiding penalties easier said than done [1:53 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"It's 100 percent unacceptable," McDermott said after the game. "100 percent unacceptable. Good teams, as you've heard me say, don't beat themselves. Obviously we need work on technique. We're going to go hard on that this week like we've been attacking it. We've got a lot of work to do, that being one of the areas, but overall a lot of work to do."'

Marker Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor not worried despite rough preseason outing [1:52 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"Definitely wasn't the performance that I would like to put on or the offense and team would like to put on. There's definitely some plays out there that we left on the field. Me personally, I felt like I left some plays on the field. It's also preseason. There's time for us to grow as a team, time for me to grow as a player and continue to keep building chemistry with the guys on the field."'

Marker 10 Buffalo Bills who helped or hurt their causes against the Philadelphia Eagles [1:51 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Tyrod Taylor's job as the Bills' starting quarterback is safe, but he did nothing on Thursday night to make fans feel better about the offense after trading away Sammy Watkins. Wide receiver Jordan Matthews didn't play against the Eagles and the starting offensive line left much to be desired, but Taylor needs to take some of the blame for his 8-of-18 performance for 53 yards and two interceptions.'

Marker Bills vs. Eagles preseason: Tyrod Taylor has sloppy game (12 observations) [1:50 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'The Bills’ first-team offense was sluggish on Thursday night. Tyrod Taylor went 8-for-19 for 53 yards and two interceptions, one of which was thrown to former Bills cornerback Ronald Darby. He had another two passes nearly picked off and finished a quarterback rating of 12.0. Pass protection was certainly a problem for Taylor, but he had trouble finding a rhythm. His passes were coming out late, he was staring down receivers and the Eagles were bringing the heat. With Sammy Watkins gone, Taylor is trying to get used to a different looking group of wideouts. The early results have not been positive.'

Marker Buffalo Bills' LeSean McCoy orders 200 cheesesteaks for teammates [1:49 AM]

Marker Rams gave way too much to Buffalo Bills in Sammy Watkins trade, says Colin Cowherd [1:47 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"I know you think I hate wide receivers," said Cowherd, "and I do not, but I think they're the convertible sports car of America. They're great until the weather is bad and then you put them in the garage until next summer. And once-post Thanksgiving weather gets bad in the NFL, sometimes the vertical passing game shrinks and you gotta run the football, swing it out, whatever.'

Marker Former Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins already impressing Rams QB Jared Goff [1:46 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"He's been sharp, man," Goff told reporters. "He's been sharper than I expected and that's not saying anything negatively about him, but just a new system for anybody. He's been on it. He's been sharp. It's been a really pleasant surprise."'

Marker Bills: These penalties are ridiculous [1:45 AM]
Batavia Daily News reports: 'But on the field, it’s the same old. Last week, the Bills had 10 total penalties for 106 yards. Buffalo topped the 100-yard plateau for the second-straight game with 15 total for 131 yards. Of those, eight came during the first quarter when starters were on the field.'
