Marker Cowboys' win a real rush [5:06 AM]

Marker Slumping Bills offense comes up empty again [5:05 AM]

Marker Head games [4:58 AM]

Marker Gregg Williams Quotes [4:52 AM] reports: '"It's pretty tough to win but we fought clear to the bitter end. We weren't precise enough even at the end to be able to pull out some type of a thing in the last gasp. They were able to kneel on it and we couldn't get it back."'

Marker Drew Bledsoe Quotes [4:51 AM] reports: '"They came out (and blitzed). Especially in the second half, they were just going to come after us and blitzed us. When they are going to blitz and play man coverage we must make one play for a big play against their man coverage and we weren't able to get that done."'

Marker Eric Moulds Quotes [4:50 AM] reports: '"It was troubling because we didn't make plays when they were there. We knew they were going to come in and blitz. We knew they were going to try to take advantage and get pressure on Drew Bledsoe. It's troubling we don't make plays when they come back to your quarterback. We can't have that if we want to be a good football team especially on the road."'

Marker Antoine Winfield Quotes [4:49 AM] reports: '"It's tough. We're all professionals. When (the offense) turns the ball over we should (hold) them to a field goal. We didn't do that. It's tough to go out there and lose like that."'

Marker Josh Reed Quotes [4:48 AM] reports: '"It's frustrating. You have to score on those opportunities and take advantage of them. When you get in the red zone you want to score touchdowns. Field goals are good but touchdowns are of course much better."'

Marker Cowboys Win Defensive Showdown [4:47 AM] reports: 'The Cowboys suffocated Buffalo's passing game, putting enormous pressure on quarterback Drew Bledsoe.

Marker Bills Offense Ready For Challenge [7:23 PM] reports: On the road and playing the No. 1 defense in the league isn't exactly the ideal way to open the second half of the season, especially when your team has dropped its last two road games by a combined 68-8, and has failed to score an offensive touchdown in its last three contests away from Ralph Wilson Stadium.

Buffalo News reports: 'If the Bills want to make the playoffs, they must beat the Cowboys. On paper, they have more talent than Dallas. It's not about paper. Critics are tough on paper.
