Buffalo Bills News - November 30, 2016

Marker Another Ugly Win [1:40 AM]
Bills Daily reports: 'Lest I be accused of being too negative, I’ll say that I’m happy the Bills won – a win is a win, even if it has warts. Fans were treated to the plays they’ve wanted to see all season long: the bomb to Sammy Watkins, the breakaway touchdown by LeSean McCoy, the heads-up scrambling of Tyrod Taylor. I know I was on my feet for those plays – it’s why I watch the Bills.'

Marker DT Bryant, WR Powell to I-R; Bills call up WR Lewis, DT Coleman [1:39 AM] reports: 'Bryant has missed the last three games with a shoulder injury suffered in the Week 8 loss to New England. The team’s medical staff obviously felt it was better to shut Bryant down for the remainder of the season rather than try to rehab the injury to get him back on the field. Bryant was instrumental in spelling Marcell Dareus at the nose tackle position while he was serving a league-imposed four game suspension, and then missed more time with hamstring and groin injuries.'

Marker Seantrel Henderson suspended by the league for 10 Games [1:38 AM] reports: 'Henderson’s suspension begins immediately. He will be eligible to participate in all offseason and preseason practices and games.'

Marker Brownie Points - Week 12 [1:37 AM] reports: 'With Buffalo’s run game largely stuck in neutral, the Bills chose to go for it on a 4th-and-1 at the Jaguars 13-yard line with one minute left in the half. We don’t know for sure if the design of the play was for Jonathan Williams to follow fullback Jerome Feltonthrough the hole on the right side of Buffalo’s formation. But it was clear that Williams immediately saw the backside hole created by Cordy Glenn and Nick O’Leary on the left side as he took a direct line there on his carry.'

Marker Bills Today: A bigger role for Justin Hunter? [1:36 AM] reports: '“I think so,” said Ryan of more playing time for Hunter. “All he does is catch touchdowns. I remember that quote. Just like we had T-D Mike (Gillislee), now we’ve got TD Hunter, touchdown Hunter. He gives us a huge red zone threat, but also I think he does warrant more playing time. With some of the injuries we have there’s no reason he shouldn’t be able to play more.”'

Marker Bills still like playing the percentages [8:33 AM]
Olean Times Herald reports: '“It’s aggressive (and) we’re really good in the red zone,” he admitted. “But, even though the numbers are what they are (these two years with the longer attempts), I still feel pretty good about kicking an extra point, even though we missed (Sunday).”'

Marker Analysis: Offense picking defense up in red zone [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“That is an area in particular we have got to get better at,” Ryan said Monday. “We already studied where we are failing in the red zone. We would actually I think be amongst the leaders in the league from around the 20 all the way down into the 5, but it’s inside the 5 they scored 12 times in 22 plays.”'

Marker Raiders QB Derek Carr should be fine for Bills game, brother says [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“[He" target="_blank"> had to put a glove on just to give him a little more grip, because he can’t squeeze it as much as he would like to, but for the most part he’s good to go,” David Carr said.'

Marker Dareus has a great game – then injury forces him to leave it [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“I guess that he kept telling the medical staff, ‘no, I can play,’ but then it’s like, I’m not going to put a guy out there that is clearly having some issues,” Bills coach Rex Ryan said. “I think it’s a strain of some kind, but we’ll know more of it as the week goes on.”'

Marker Rex Ryan: Bills fans weren't booing the team, they were booing me [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'OK, everyone got that? Fans weren't booing the offense, which gained 63 yards in the first half, or kicker Dan Carpenter, who missed another extra point. They were booing the coach.'

Marker LeSean McCoy, Sammy Watkins come through victory over Jacksonville unscathed [1:55 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"I don't want to place any number on it, will he get more or less or whatever," the coach said. "We'll be smart with him. We'll be smart through the week, as well. We're not going to overdo him on the practice field. We need him healthy, and recongnizing that he's had a lot of time off – hasn't done a whole lot of football activity. We've got to balance that. Obviously we all want to get him on the field for the entire game, but I don't know if that's the best thing for him and our football team."'

Marker Why did the Bills go for two in the fourth quarter but not the third? Because the chart said so. [1:54 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'But going for two in a situation when two points could get you within (or ahead by) a football-friendly number (such as 3, 7 or 8) has been more of a standard practice.'

Marker Jerry Sullivan: Raiders rise at last, while Bills fans dream [1:53 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'As weak as Oakland's defense has been, it's hard to imagine where they'd be without Mack. He was expected to make strides after getting 15 sacks last season. But he has faced constant double teams. Opponents scheme for him on every play, resorting to multiple reads, misdirections and chip blocks to keep Mack at bay.'

Marker Three up, three down following Buffalo's Week 12 win over Jacksonville [1:52 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Shaq Lawson: In 21 defensive snaps, he did not register a tackle. Outside of one pass rush in which he almost tipped a Blake Bortles pass, it’s hard to recall Lawson generating much pressure at all.'

Marker What They Said: Rex Ryan's Monday press conference ahead of Raiders game [1:51 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Nobody is 100% right now, but we got to, we have had our share to say the least of injuries. We had good players, getting Marcell Dareus back that was a huge one, but we can just pretend it doesn’t make a difference, this just in it makes a huge difference. I think part of our goal line I think has a chance to get better now that he is playing. But we got to just move on, if there are certain guys out others have to step up.'

Marker Catalon leads CBS telecast without much for Bills fans to beef about [1:50 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Even Tasker’s best friend in East Aurora would have to admit he won’t be sending this game to the Broadcasting Hall of Fame.'

Marker Nice for Bills to have Watkins, Dareus back [1:49 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '“We’ve been saying it for a long time because we know, but getting him on the field, and I know it’s a limited role, he’s such a difference maker as a player,” coach Rex Ryan said of Watkins. “Hopefully he can play a little more and more because we certainly need him and we’re a different team with him.”'

Marker Buffalo Bills' Richie Incognito named among PFF's top players of Week 12 [1:48 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Incognito was among PFF's top run blockers in 2015 and he has been strong as both a run blocker (79.0 grade) and pass blocker (85.0 grade) this season with the Bills.'

Marker Rex Ryan thinks Buffalo Bills fans' boos were directed at him, not players [1:47 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"Our team never got booed," Ryan said. "I think our fans are great, they stay with our team all the way. I think the booing was directed to me and our team understands that."'

Marker After consecutive ugly wins, are Buffalo Bills ready for Raiders and Steelers? [1:46 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"Don't let anyone tell you this wasn't a great win," Rex told players after the game. "This was a great frickin' win, I promise you."'

Marker Watkins makes a difference for Bills in return [1:45 AM]
Batavia Daily News reports: '“Yeah, it did loosen the defense up a little bit,” McCoy said. “It was just them trying to play the sticks. Or guessing, are they throwing or running? After most things, they were trying to stop the run."'

Marker 5 takeaways from Bills win over Jags [1:44 AM]
Batavia Daily News reports: 'Only three catches for Sammy Watkins in his first game since Week 2, but they made just enough of a difference. Watkins hauled in a 62-yard completion down the right sideline. Buffalo’s offense hasn’t been a big-play producer like it was in 2015, but that lone catch went a long way as Jacksonville started to respect the deep ball. Other teams will take notice too.'

Marker Rex Ryan's next test is breaking Bills' hex at Oakland [1:43 AM]
AP reports: '"I don't know if it's extra motivation that this team's got this record or whatever. They've got that record because they earned it," Ryan said. "We know our backs are to the wall regardless of who we play. So they're going to get our best shot one way or the other."'

Marker Watkins, Dareus provide 1-2 punch for Bills [1:42 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: '"Sammy Watkins is the real deal," said Bills running back LeSean McCoy.'

Marker Watkins, McCoy come through game with 'no issues' [1:41 AM]
WGR-AM reports: '“You feel terrible for (Harvin) because I know how hard that he is trying to get and how much he wants to get back and help this football team and it is tough to see him so up in the condition that he is in,” Ryan said. “But I think you got to be patient, when he is ready to get back out there we will put him out there.”'

Marker Staying alive [1:40 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'A chance. That's what the Bills have now. A chance to do more than just be mathematically alive. Win in Oakland and they may look ALIVE alive. Like really in it. Lose and they'll drop to 6-6 and settle for, well, Bills fans know all too well what they'd be settling for. That's what is at stake next Sunday in Oakland.'

Marker Watkins makes his presence felt in return to action [1:39 AM] reports: '“They’re trying to stop the run, but also play the sticks because we’re a running team,” McCoy said. “When we hit Sammy they just played man coverage. I guess they thought with the rookie they had a guy who could match with Watkins and that’s a mismatch. Sammy is the real deal.”'

Marker Bills Today: Mr. Big Stuff delivers big performance [1:38 AM] reports: '“There’s going to be games where you stall, but you have to be disciplined, not turn the football over during the process and figure out what they’re doing that’s causing trouble and get back to doing what we do well. We were able to get back on the same page and go out and make some plays in the second half.”'

Marker Watkins’ return sparks Bills [8:32 AM]
Olean Times Herald reports: '“You have to give Jacksonville (which has now lost six games by a touchdown or less) credit … we know it’s a dangerous team. They have a lot of good players and they certainly played well … Blake especially. He’s a good athlete, but today I guess he thought he would take advantage of his athleticism … it kind of caught us off guard.”'

Marker Big plays cost Jaguars in latest loss [8:32 AM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'The Bills had a mere 63 yards of offense at the break. The Jaguars’ defense, flimsy at times amid a luckless 2-8 start, did the job.'
