Buffalo Bills News - November 29, 2015

Marker Savvy Smith manages well in Chiefs’ offensive system [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'There’s no denying that Smith has had some success with big-play passes on the way to the Chiefs’ 5-5 record. His eight completions of 40 or more yards are tied for the most in his 11 NFL seasons. One of his new wide receivers, speedster Jeremy Maclin, is second on the team with 48 receptions for 612 yards (an average of 12.8 yards per catch). That includes a long of 61 yards.'

Marker Who is your team's clock-management assistant? [1:58 AM]

Marker No playoff vibe to this latest Bills-Chiefs encounter [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'It’s hard to get up for Kansas City, possibly the most dull, non-descript franchises in the league. This will be the eighth straight year in which the Bills and Chiefs meet in the regular season. They’re the only non-division foes in the league who can make that claim.'

Marker Getting to Know Colton Schmidt: Consistency is key to punter’s longevity [1:55 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Other punters, you make one mistake and that can eat away at you and you’re out of the NFL. What are ways you stay calm? Yeah, that’s definitely there. You always remember the bad ones over the good ones for sure. I’m pretty sure every one of us is that way and could tell you every bad kick they’ve had. But you can’t let that bother you. You have to stay focused. At the end of the day, you’re still an athlete, still a competitor so you should have that mindset of ... “I’m better than that” and fight through it. You come back and step up next time. If you had the other mindset, you probably wouldn’t even make it here.'

Marker The Other Side: Paylor on on the Chiefs' defense, Peters, prediction [1:54 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'I'm picking the Chiefs to win 23-20, but I think it's up in the air. I just think that with the way the Chiefs’ defense is playing, it will take a strong effort by a banged-up Tyrod Taylor to come out of Arrowhead with a victory. Also, the Bills are among the league’s most penalized teams, which never helps on the road.'

Marker Bills-Chiefs will have a playoff atmosphere [1:53 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Chiefs 17, Bills 13.'

Marker Bills meet Chiefs for crucial game Sunday [1:52 AM]
Batavia Daily News reports: 'There’s a segment of Alex Smith haters in KC that are going to moan about Smith regardless. There’s also a segment of Alex Smith fans in KC (many of them former Niners fans who came over with Smith) who are going to defend Smith regardless. It makes for some fun comment sections, let me tell you.'

Marker Bills/Chiefs preview: notes and stats [1:51 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'QB TYROD TAYLOR (100.9) is on pace to join HOFer JIM KELLY (101.2 in 1990) as only Bills with 100+ rating in single season. Has won 4 of past 6 starts & passed for 1,232 yards with 7 TDs vs. 1 INT for 100 rating & 160 rushing yards'

Marker 5 things to watch for in Bills - Chiefs [1:50 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'At the end of the day, with the teams so close, I barely give the edge to the most talented roster: the Bills.'

Marker P Colton Schmidt flourishing in second season [1:49 AM] reports: '“A lot people know what they’re supposed to do as far as their golf swing goes when they’re driving the ball. Doing it is a whole other thing. It’s simple when you lay it out. Like for us, you need to get the ball out flat and swing up, but it doesn’t always work that way. In theory, it seems simple. It’s just a matter of finding it. It’s like a broken record when you ask anyone what you need to do to be a better punter. You’ll always hear back, ‘Consistency.’ You just have to find your own way how to be consistent,” he said.'

Marker Top 10 reasons Bills-Chiefs is our biggest game yet [1:48 AM] reports: 'The playoffs essentially start now for both teams; this a must-win game. The intensity will be palpable on Sunday, and you could feel it at One Bills Drive already this week.'

Marker Bills’ depth on defensive line takes hit [1:39 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“I feel we can be just as productive as the guys who were in front of us,” said Bryant, who has 23 tackles this season. “Obviously it’s a big opportunity for us to show what we can do.”'

Marker Kyle Williams goes on IR, future with team unclear [1:38 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Post-procedure, Williams expects rehab to last "a few months." After enduring back-to-back Achilles' injuries in the past, he said nothing scares him. Of course, the Bills will eventually have a financial decision to make with the 10-year veteran, too. Buffalo could clear $5 million in cap space by releasing Williams, who'll turn 33 years old in June.'

Marker Vic Carucci’s Take Five: Intensity has to be there for Bills [1:37 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Defense must avoid being victimized by the Chiefs’ exceptional screen game. Most opponents are liberal in their use of screens against the Bills because of the attack-oriented nature of their front seven. And they tend to have success with it because they’re able to take advantage of the over-pursuit by linemen and linebackers.'

Marker Tyler Dunne's three thoughts: Rookie corners, Chiefs RB, the deep ball [1:36 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Whether it's Charcandrick West, Spencer Ware or quarterback Alex Smith, the Chiefs have been able to keep defenses off balance.'

Marker Too small? Undrafted Nickell Robey comes up big for Bills [1:35 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '“Robey is what we call a freak, a specimen in Polk County,” Williams said recently. “I remember our coach (Richard Tate) told us it’s gonna be a track meet, so be prepared. We asked, what do you mean? And every time you turn around you see 21 flashing down the sideline on a jet sweep. One game, first play from scrimmage he took one 85 yards for a touchdown and we got to the sideline and it was like, ‘Yeah, it’s gonna be a track meet.’”'

Marker Mario Williams will miss Chiefs game [1:34 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Williams is going to undergo surgery to have his meniscus repaired. He said Friday he has no plans of retiring. "I've got no plans to not play anymore," Williams said. "I think the great thing about this game is you're judged on what you do on the field, and when I'm out there, I feel like I do a pretty good job when I'm out there. I think the thing that's not measured is what you have in (your heart) and in (your head), and I've got plenty of that left to give."'

Marker Bills sputtering offense needs more of real McCoy [1:33 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '“Oh man, me and Coach Reid have a special relationship,’’ McCoy said. “We still text and talk. When I got traded, you know he sent me a text. He had some words for me, encouragement. So it will be something special. He’s a good coach, a good man, and I think that’s cool. But we gotta win and going in there we’ll talk a little bit. But the main concern is beating the Chiefs.’"'

Marker Bills' DT Kyle Williams likely heading to IR but has no plans to retire [1:32 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Williams, who hasn't played since the Bills' Week 6 game against the Cincinnati Bengals, was holding out hope he would be able to return this season. His knee hasn't responded to treatment the way he or the team hoped, so he's having a procedure to repair the meniscus in his knee and will require a few months of rehab before he can resume football activities.'

Marker Bills DT Williams out for season [1:29 AM]
AP reports: '"It's been tough," Williams said. "It was something that we knew was going to have to be addressed sooner or later, and we kind of hoped against hope that I could get through and that I could respond and I could play with it and wait until after the season."'

Marker Bills DT Williams to undergo knee surgery [1:28 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: '"Looking at it, we at some point, it needed to be done," Williams told reporters. "We just hoped that it could be something that we could put off and I could get through the year and help our team through treatment and hoping that it would respond. How likely that was or not, I don't know, but [we" target="_blank"> tried to exhaust all options and cling to as much hope as we can."'

Marker Kyle Williams already planning comeback from season-ending surgery [1:27 AM]
ESPN reports: '"Looking at it, we at some point, it needed to be done," Williams said. "We just hoped that it could be something that we could put off and I could get through the year and help our team through treatment and hoping that it would respond. How likely that was or not, I don't know, but [we" target="_blank"> tried to exhaust all options and cling to as much hope as we can."'

"I’ve got no plans to not play anymore.” Williams is scheduled to make $7 million dollars next season. He initially hurt his knee in week six against the Cincinnati Bengals and hasn't played since.'

Marker Kyle Williams' season ends with knee surgery [1:23 AM] reports: '“I don’t believe he’s going to be able to help us the rest of this year,” said a disappointed Ryan. “It’s unfortunate because I know nobody has tried to get out here more than he has. It just hasn’t responded.”'
