Marker Special teams peaking at right time [1:47 AM] reports: '“We knew all week that special teams wasn't their strong point,” TE MarQueis Gray said in the locker room following Sunday’s win. “They gave up some blocked punts this year and we figured if we went after them and made some plays then we would have a good advantage this week.”'

Marker Huge Game, Huge Win [12:51 PM]
Bills Daily reports: How maddening is it to think that but for a continuous string of backup caliber quarterbacks the Bills might be turning the page? Time waits for no man, and if the Bills keep waiting for a better quarterback they won’t be able to hold together their current special defensive unit – that would be a tragedy.

Marker Bills can’t worry about postseason status [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Then they will need help. Lots of it. Provided the Bills win out, if three of the following five scenarios play out, Buffalo would end the NFL’s longest streak of consecutive seasons without a playoff appearance at 14.'

Marker Calculators burn up over Bills’ playoff scenarios [1:58 AM]

Marker For the Bills, a win that resonates [1:55 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'The Raiders are 2-12 and are one of the worst teams in the NFL, but the Bills better not sleep on these guys because Oakland will be at home and playing with nothing to lose. That's always a scary combination for a team in playoff contention. How utterly sickening would it be for Buffalo to negate its tremendous victory over Green Bay by laying an egg in Oakland and blowing up the season? Yeah, very.'

Marker Here's how the Bills make the playoffs [1:54 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'AFC North rivals Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, and Baltimore are all at nine wins, while AFC West rivals Kansas City and San Diego are at eight. If one of the teams from the North loses twice, and both the Chargers and Chiefs lose at least once, two wins by the Bills gets them in.'

Marker C.J. Spiller will return to Buffalo Bills' active roster this week [1:53 AM]

Marker Bills beat Packers despite Kyle Orton's struggles, and 5 observations from stats and snap counts [1:52 AM]

Marker Bill Polian says Bills coach Doug Marrone should be coach of the year candidate [1:51 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"Doug Marrone, the Bills' head coach, should be very much in the running for coach of the year," Polian said.

Marker Bills set to activate running back C.J. Spiller [1:50 AM]
AP reports: '"He's a guy who's made plays in the past," Marrone said of the team's 2010 first-round draft pick. "Any time you can bring back someone who's a potential playmaker obviously helps."'

Marker Bills' Spiller set to return [1:49 AM]

Marker Playoff push can't mask Bills' need for better QB play [1:47 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: '"We'll just keep on getting better," Orton said after completing 14 of 27 passes for 158 yards with one interception. "I think that's the only focus that you can have. Feel good that we got the win, but realize there are a lot more things we can do to get better. It's a battle every week of execution. The good offenses just execute play in and play out. We'll work our butts off to get to that point."'

Marker Bills to activate Spiller this week [1:46 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'To make room for Spiller on the roster, the Bills will need to either release someone or place an ailing player on injured reserve.

WGR-AM reports: 'Two years into the careers of cornerback Stephon Gilmore and left tackle Cordy Glenn, the top two picks of the Buffalo Bills in the 2012 NFL Draft, one seemed to be a bit more ahead of the other. An injury set Gilmore back which led to an average season, while Glenn had become a quality force for the Bills at left tackle.'
