Marker Vic Carucci's Take Five: Bills can't allow Ajayi to do what McCoy is doing [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The main reason for the Dolphins' success in their stunning, 30-15 victory against the Pittsburgh Steelers was Jay Ajayi's 204-yard rushing performance. It was reminiscent of what LeSean McCoy has been doing against Bills opponents the past couple of games.'

Marker Vic Carucci's Bills Wake-Up Call: Fans should try to sit back & enjoy the ride [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Of course, that's impossible, right? Holding onto the past is what the Bills' faithful does. Sixteen years of seeing hope melt into disappointment has created such a thick shell of cynicism, it can't be penetrated by anything positive. Anything like Sunday's 45-16 beat-down of the San Francisco 49ers when the Bills, thanks to LeSean McCoy and a dominant offensive line, put up the kind of rushing numbers that haven't been seen since the team was making annual trips to the Super Bowl.'

Marker Here's how the Buffalo Bills make the playoffs [1:55 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Playoffs? A Jim Mora moment would’ve been epic. But Ryan, whose uncharacteristic heart-surgeon calm during this giddy month of winning football is a big reason his players have polished up so nicely, fielded the question like an All-Star shortstop.'

Marker Stephon Gilmore thinks Buffalo Bills needed Jets loss to turn season around [1:54 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"We're definitely better," Bills cornerback Stephon Gilmore said Monday. "That Jets game, it happened. It wasn't our best game. We learned from that and we don't want that taste in our mouths anymore. We're just coming out every day having great practices during the week and coach is putting great game plans together. Maybe we needed that game to help us win these last four games. That's one thing I took from it. Just learn from it and put it behind us."'

Marker Buffalo Bills rank among AFC's elite teams in Week 7 power rankings [1:53 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'The blocking that allowed the Bills to average 211.8 rushing yards per game the past four weeks has also helped the passing game. Tyrod Taylor is averaging an NFL-high 2.92 seconds before passing this season, giving him plenty of time to find a depleted group of receivers.'

Marker Buffalo Bills Hall of Fame QB Jim Kelly helps ECMC officially open Kelly Tough room [1:52 AM]

Marker Buffalo Bills' Kyle Williams named to Pro Football Focus' Week 6 Team of the Week [1:51 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Much like the Bills, Kyle Williams has had a little revival this season. Williams looked firmly in the twilight of his career last year, but has showed recently that, at least against weaker opposition, he can still be very effective. He beat the 49ers for two QB hits and four hurries, though he couldn't finish any with a sack.'

Marker A Weekend in Buffalo, in the Eye of the Kaepernick Storm [1:50 AM]
SI reports: 'It’s a tradition in these parts to hang quarterbacks like Brady in effigy, but the arrival of Kaepernick and his national anthem protest left some fans uneasy with traditions. Vendors hawked T-shirts with Kaepernick’s face in the crosshairs of a rifle scope, but two fans who proudly shelled out $10 for the shirts declined to be interviewed or pictured. Said one fan walking by the dummy tacklers: “You’re just making Buffalo look bad!”'

Marker Joe B All 22 Review: Grading Bills vs. 49ers (10/18/16) [1:49 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'Welcome back, Cordy. After looking a little slow in his first week back versus New England, and playing just so-so against Los Angeles last week, Glenn’s performance against San Francisco was unmistakeable.'

Marker Jim Kelly dedicates 'Kelly Tough Room' at ECMC [1:48 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: '"I remember when I walked the halls when I was here and when you see some other people you look in the mirror and say you know you don't have it that bad.", said Kelly. "There are so many other people that don't have the support. Don't have encouraging words to be able to get them through to the next day."'

Marker Another Bills win [1:47 AM]
Bills Daily reports: So many times I’ve been burned getting too excited about the Bills too early – string together some wins and people start think about the playoffs. Hey, there’s nothing wrong with reveling in a hot streak and daydreaming about the postseason, but when you’re a Bills fan it helps to be realistic.

Marker LeSean McCoy moving into NFL MVP conversation [1:46 AM] reports: '“Shady is a huge part of what we’re doing here,” said Richie Incognito of McCoy.'

Marker Top 7 storylines for Bills-Dolphins this week [1:45 AM] reports: 'With four games under his belt as offensive coordinator and play caller, it’s evident that Anthony Lynn has made a difference for the Bills. Against San Francisco last week, the Bills hit big plays in the running game using unbalanced lines, and shifting tackles Cordy Glenn and Jordan Mills to the opposite side.'

Marker Sacks now Alexander’s ‘speciality’ [9:16 AM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'The Bills signed both players as free agents … and for clearance sale prices. Brown, the NFL leader in tackles, signed a 1-year deal for $1.25 million and Alexander got $885, 000 for the season, basically the league veteran minimum. For that expenditure of just over $2 million, Buffalo got two players who are performing at a Pro Bowl level. And there’s no way the Bills would have gotten similar production from Lawson and Ragland, had they been healthy, if only because of their lack of experience.'

Marker Special teams has been on point during four-game win streak [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'According to rankings kept by the website Football Outsiders, the Bills ranked No. 12 in the NFL on special teams through the first five weeks of the season, but that is likely to rise into the top 10 after Sunday’s win. The Bills were nearly flawless against the 49ers, with the highlight for the special teams coming in the fourth quarter, when cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman forced a fumble on a kickoff return by the 49ers’ Keshawn Martin, with safety Jonathan Meeks scooping it up for the Bills.'

Marker Shaq Lawson set to return, but not as the starter [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"He’ll have an opportunity to get in there and play and hopefully [he] can spell Jerry [Hughes] and Lorenzo some in base situations and then probably contribute heavily on the sub team as well, our pass rush team," Ryan said, adding that it remains to be seen if he'll play Sunday against Miami.'

Marker Promising Bills seasons have gone south in Miami [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Four times in this millennium, the Bills have traveled to Miami with a winning record. They've lost every time. A quick recap of those forgettable visits...'.

Marker If the season ended today, the Bills would... [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The Bills improved to 4-2 Sunday with 45-16 win over the San Francisco 49ers, which would currently give them the second wild card position.'

Marker Three up, three down following Buffalo's Week Six win over San Francisco [1:55 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Buffalo has now won four straight games for the first time since 2008, and if the season ended today, would qualify for the postseason. After the 0-2 start, that’s an amazing turnaround.'

Marker Transcript of Rex Ryan's Monday press conference [1:54 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Well I think we are doing a lot of creative things when we do run the football. Multiple formations, personnel groupings, tackles overs, unbalanced lines, all kind of things, direct snaps, options. So you are getting the whole gambit there. I think that has been really good for us, keeps defenses off balance. And then I think we are doing probably a better job than maybe it looks like yardage wise in throwing the football. So I think we have been efficient and I think we are protecting the ball as well.'

Marker Rex Ryan's old school ways working for the Bills [1:53 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Surely, his late father Buddy is smiling from above.'

Marker Buffalo Bills LB Preston Brown breaks down game-changing 4th down stop against 49ers [1:52 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'The 49ers and Bills had spent the third quarter of the game trading punts. The first five drives of the half had ended with a punt. With just over four minutes left in the third quarter, the 49ers had 4th-down-and-1 at the Bills' 40 yard-line. The Bills were leading 17-13, and Kelly decided to go for it. With Carlos Hyde out of the game, the 49ers ran Mike Davis up the middle, and Preston Brown was there to make the stop.'

Marker The Buffalo Bills and four game winning streaks in presidential election years [1:51 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Gil Brandt, a senior analyst for, revealed quite the interesting tidbit about Buffalo and four game winning streaks during presidential election years on Monday. As it turns out, the Bills have had four game winning streaks during seven of the last eight presidential election years.'

Marker What Rex Ryan expects Shaq Lawson to bring to Buffalo Bills as rookie [1:50 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"I don't know if we can say for this week," Ryan said. "But I think moving forward, it's get in there and spell some guys and then maybe can he play in the sub team? Can he do different things? We're going to find out. But we know he's a really good talent, and I think combined with the players we have I think he'll be good. You know, I think as far as saying well, is he a starter? No. He's not going to start now. I think Lorenzo Alexander's earned that. But we are going to work Shaq in there."'

Marker Miami Dolphins may be without best defensive back in Week 7 versus Buffalo Bills [1:49 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Jones, a 2015 Pro Bowl safety and one-time All-Pro, was having another strong season for the Dolphins. Through six games, Jones has 51 total tackles, four passes defensed, 0.5 sacks and one interception. Losing Jones for any amount of time is a significant blow for the Dolphins.'

Marker Buffalo Bills' LeSean McCoy named an offensive player of the week by Peter King [1:48 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'The formula for winning seems simple. Buffalo is 4-0 when McCoy has over 100 total yards in a game and 0-2 when he fails to reach this total. In Week 7, Buffalo will play the Miami Dolphins on the road. Miami's run defense is currently 31st in the league and allows 147 rushing yards per game.'

Marker Shaq Lawson, Marcell Dareus returning will make Rex Ryan's Bills defense even scarier [1:47 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Adding a first-round pick and a dominant nose tackle to one of the NFL's most productive front sevens? That certainly sounds like fun for Rex and Rob Ryan. It doesn't sound all that amusing for opposing quarterbacks.'

Marker LeSean McCoy is the Bills' MVP — and it's not even close [1:46 AM]
Auburn Citizen reports: 'Since Lynn became the lead offensive coach, McCoy has 73 carries for 470 yards and five touchdowns. He's had three 100-yard rushing performances in four games since the coaching change. In each game he's surpassed the century mark, the Bills have won.'

Marker Rex Ryan OK with 'boring' during Bills 4-game winning streak [1:45 AM]
AP reports: '"Boring is good," he said on Monday. "Maybe that's the old-school in me."'

Marker Resurgent McCoy running Bills into contention [1:44 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: '"We have confidence when it comes to running the football, and Shady proves us right," said Bills left guard Richie Incognito, who admitted his heart sunk when McCoy was down on the field. "When you have a talented guy like him, you feed him. He makes big plays happen. He's a dynamic runner, probably one of the best one-on-one guys I've seen in space as far as making people miss and setting up jukes and getting yards after contact. We want to get him one-on-one with corners, one-on-one with safeties. He'll make that guy miss and gain big yards."'
