Marker Leftwich turns Jags right way [8:55 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"I think they're what everybody is pumping them up to be," said Bills linebacker Takeo Spikes, who will get an up-close look at the Jaguars on Sunday in Ralph Wilson Stadium. "They're an up-and-coming team, as of right now anyway. We don't want them to be up-and-coming against us on Sunday. But they are a good, young team on the way up."'

Marker Van Pelt offers fresh perspective [8:54 AM]

Marker Bills season on the line [5:08 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"It's not the sole nucleus of what's going to make this thing run, but they are a large part of any team," Mularkey said. "But I'm not going to put all the pressure on them. We have other positions that need to play at a high level. Receivers, tight ends and fullbacks doing their part will help the offensive line."'

Marker Jacksonville (0-0) at Buffalo (0-0) [9:05 PM]
The Sports Network reports: 'Predicted Outcome: Bills 28, Jaguars 20.'

Marker Three Keys to Bills Win [8:50 PM] reports: '"We're going to continue to pound on people," said quarterback Drew Bledsoe. "I think you'll see that at times it may not be efficient in the first quarter, it might not even be efficient in the second quarter. But as the game goes on, with the big dudes we have up front and with Travis Henry running the ball and pounding on people, late in the game that's where you can kind of start to wear them down." Jaguars second year quarterback Byron Leftwich can make things exciting, but stopping running back Fred Taylor is the key for buffalo's defense."

Marker Bills add Adams to injury list [8:49 PM]

Marker Eric Moulds Interview on NFL Network [5:06 PM] reports: 'DH: Everybody knows what Travis brings to the table, but what about Willis—has he looked good in practice? EM: He’s looked great, I think he came in and he’s picked up the offense well and I think he’s going to do great things for us. I think right now we know Travis is our guy, but Willis is going to get some of the carries also. At the same time we feel that we have 2 quality backs and like I said before, it’s a long season and it’s very hard for guys to stay healthy.'

Marker Numbers for Reed shout Hall of Fame [5:03 PM]
Olean Times Herald reports: '“They’re not strong enough to win the division ... I can see them going 8-8” he said, before hedging, “but they could get a wild card spot."'

Marker Mularkey eager to make debut [1:00 PM]
AP reports: '"There's no emotional high and low that you get that you can compare to any other job in the world," said Mularkey, who at 42 is the third-youngest coach in the league. "I know that no matter how many software programs I marketed, I didn't get any experience like I did on the football field."'

Marker 'Germanator' Tackles American Football [12:49 PM]
Deutsche Welle reports: 'As a first-year NFL player, Ritzmann will earn the league minimum of $230,000 per year, but said he knows he'll have to prove himself before he's able to command a salary comparable to the $98 million quarterback Peyton Manning will earn in seven years. "Of course it would be great if I could sack one of the big quarterbacks like Donovan McNabb or Peyton Manning," Ritzmann said. "And I'm sure that's going to happen in the future."'

Marker Bills Kickoff Weekend Memories [12:37 PM] reports: '"As a fan, the 1980 season opener when they beat the Dolphins and ended the streak of the 1970s stands out. They didn't beat the Dolphins in a decade - 20 straight losses. To beat the Dolphins in the season opener for most long-time Bills fans, that's everybody's most memorable opening game."'

Marker Kelsay, Denney Content with Sharing Time [12:37 PM] reports: '"Chris Kelsay and Ryan Denney have been doing a great job," defensive coordinator Jerry Gray said. "They're real good friends but they know they need to compete against one another at a very high level. It's not like one is a good run stopper and one is a good pass rusher, it's not that at all. When you look at their production, it's about the same. They're both playing good enough to start, so they're both going to play."'

Marker Bills to get a test run against Jags' tackles [8:52 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"They're guys who, if they catch you leaning a little bit, they're going to throw you down," said Bills guard Chris Villarrial. "You get off balance they're going to chuck you, throw you. . . . You have to be disciplined every time you set up against them. It's a great challenge for us and a good measure of where we're at."'

Marker Brown's brother supplies some perspective [8:51 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'He could reach an injury settlement with the team and become a free agent. If no settlement is reached, he could be released after his knee is healthy. In the meantime, he's helping Drew Bledsoe in meetings.'

Marker Spikes ready to take out the trash [8:50 AM]

Marker Evans' speed should give Bills a new dimension [8:49 AM]

"He's just that much hungrier from last year i think. that's the difference I see as far as his attitude, the way he comes to work."'

Marker The Bills And Jags Will Be On Local TV [5:19 PM]

Marker Bills Open Season Against Jacksonville [3:38 PM] reports: '"Last year was one of the hardest ones for me to shake during the off-season," Bledsoe said. "I can't claim that I've done any more work or worked any harder this year than I have in years past, but during the off-season I spent a lot more time thinking about football because I was so frustrated by what happened last year. I do have a sense that this year is an opportunity for us."'
