Marker Bills Lose In Miami 22-9 [1:31 AM]
Bills Daily reports: 'This is the fourth time in this excruciating 14 year playoff drought the Bills started off 5-3 and we convinced ourselves this time it would be different and that they would be challenging for a coveted spot in the playoffs. After this game it has become evident that they are destined for failure once again. The current issues are red zone failures and conservative play calling but the overall atmosphere is the problem. This team just does not know how to win and the long term future being secured did not give them any "Pegula Magic". The collapsed in this game like they have been collapsing for 14 years and the losing culture continues to have a stronghold on Western New York.'

My job is to put points on the board and whatever I need to do to get the offense better that’s what I need to do.”'

Marker 5 things to watch for during Bills - Dolphins [1:34 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'The Dolphins and Bills are two eerily similar teams with the same record, and oddly enough, both suffered heartbreaking losses last week in a game that each should have won. The difference for the Bills and Dolphins in the second game of this series is that Miami is playing as well defensively as any team in the NFL, and the Bills had to travel to the game on such a short week. There is a reason why the road teams on Thursday night games struggle as much as they do, and the Bills might just succumb to that against an equal opponent.'

Marker These Bills are better, but should be better still [1:33 AM]

Johnson played at Nassau Community College (NY) before West Texas A&M and led the Lions to a 19-2 record while being named a two-time All-Conference selection.'

Marker Scouting Report: Bills at Dolphins [1:31 AM] reports: 'Buffalo has slipped all the way to the bottom of the league in red zone touchdown efficiency at just better than 41 percent (41.2%). Working in their favor is their defense has allowed the fewest red zone possessions in the league (21) and the Dolphins have struggled in the red zone (46.5% TD efficiency). The Bills offense has to cash in on at least half their red zone opportunities with touchdowns and hope the defense can hold Miami to just a couple of red zone possessions in the game.'

Marker Jerry Hughes bolsters Bills' pass rush [8:23 PM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"We all see what he does rushing the passer, but rushing the passer isn't just about getting sacks," said Williams. "You have guys who can get bunches of sacks, but when it comes to consistent steady pressure, they might not generate. Jerry gets sacks, and he creates pressure in the backfield in the run game and the pass game. He's done a great job."'

Marker Week 11 game crucial for Buffalo Bills and Miami Dolphins, and 5 things to watch for on Thursday Nig [9:24 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill has caught fire since coach Joe Philbin publicly considered benching the third-year quarterback. He threw for three touchdowns against San Diego and put together a decent game on the road against Detroit in Week 10. Tannehill has never had an easy time against Buffalo, but he's playing at home and starting to find a rhythm. If he can stay hot, the Bills could be in trouble.'
