Marker Bledsoe makes his mark with Bills [11:52 PM]
Minneapolis Star Tribune reports: 'Drew Bledsoe threw for 463 yards in Buffalo's 45-39 overtime victory over the Vikings on Sunday, shattering the franchise record for passing yards in a game.

He threw 70 passes in that game, completing 45 of them.'

Marker Culpepper takes some blame again [11:51 PM]

And those three fumbles led to 13 Buffalo points, including one that was recovered in the end zone for a fourth-quarter Bills TD. "They did a good job of getting to me," Culpepper said. "That's a part of the game. I don't care if guys come and hit me, I have to be able to bounce back, stay in there, stand tough and tall. . . . I just have to hold on to the ball. If I get hit from the back? So what. I have to hold onto the ball."

Marker Bills get past Vikings in overtime, 45-39 [11:47 PM]
Minneapolis Star Tribune reports: '"We're going to win as a team and lose as a team," Moss said. "By our FG kicker missing those [extra points], I wasn't really down on him. Of course, he could have made them. But what did we do on defense? What did we [I] do on offense? What did we do on special teams? Let's not blame it on our kicker for missing those PATs. You can't blame him. If you're going to blame somebody, let's blame the whole team, including the coaching staff. Because it was their fault and it was our fault for not making it happen. That's really what it was."'
