Marker Strategy and personnel [4:48 AM]
CBS Sportsline reports: 'The Bills will consider moving DT Justin Bannan to offensive guard on a full-time basis next year, line coach Jim McNally said, and Bannan isn't opposed to the idea.'

Marker Notes, quotes [4:47 AM]
CBS Sportsline reports: 'RB Willis McGahee's 132-yard rushing day on 37 carries against the Jets last Sunday was even more impressive when you consider he had 11 runs go for zero or negative yardage. Six runs lost 21 yards. He made up for it with five carries for 12 yards or longer, bouncing outside when a hole wasn't there or carrying defenders on his back.'

Anytime you win it's great,” said right guard Chris Villarrial. “We would like to stack up more of these together and this is a huge, huge week for us right now. We can go up there and if we can beat the best team in football it can really raise the morale around here.”'

Marker Key injuries don't stop New England [8:47 PM]
AP reports: '''We just have to have a little more communication,'' Harrison said. ''If I look at Ty Law, I might give him a sign or a wink or a nod of the head. He knows exactly what I'm doing, whereas you have to go out there and play alongside maybe an unproven guy or a guy that's inexperienced, it's a little different.'''

Marker McGahee's leaping into limelight [8:47 PM]
AP reports: '''He's added a big spark for us,'' guard Chris Villarrial said. ''It's great to see him step in there the way he has. He's just taken over. We're really excited about him being back there.'''

Marker Bills' Willis McGahee Conference Call [4:15 PM] reports: 'Q: What was the locker room like when Drew Bledsoe was taking so many shots from the public?
WM: There was total support for him. I really don't get into the newspapers and get into all of that hype. They don't know what it takes to go out there and do his job. I don't think anyone of them can come up there and try to throw the ball, make the correct reads and call the right plays in certain situations.'

Marker Bill Belichick Press Conference [4:13 PM] reports: 'Q: What is McGahee doing that maybe [Travis] Henry wasn't doing?
BB: They are both really good backs. I don't think there is anything wrong with Henry. He is one of the best running backs in the league. McGahee has come in there and run hard. He has good speed. I think they both have similar styles. They break a lot of tackles. They can both get outside. They can both run with power inside. They are both good backs. They both catch the ball as outlet receivers. They have [Lee] Evans, [Josh] Reed and [Eric] Moulds to kind of go deep and run the vertical patterns. Then, if you drop off and cover those, they can drop the ball off underneath. Drew [Bledsoe] has done a good job of that. They have been able to be productive in the passing game as well.'

Marker Braxton, Bills Move the Chains [7:21 AM] reports: 'Hall of Fame guard Joe DeLamielleure feels that the Bills’ success at moving the chains can be summed up with five words. "Good technique and great knowledge," he said. "In today’s football, I find great technology and no technique. They have all the computers and all this and they have 1,000 formations and they run 100 plays. But they don’t perfect any of them. We ran five or six plays, maximum, and ran them to perfection. It didn’t matter who they put in there, they knew it was coming and we blocked them."'

Marker Things Starting to Come Together [3:06 PM] reports: 'Drew Bledsoe had great pocket awareness this week. His performance really stood out to me. I thought he scrambled well and ducked around the pass rush. He was able to buy himself some more time and get the ball into the hand of his receivers. He wasn't doing that so much in the beginning of the season but he's really started to come on strong these past few games. I liked how he saw that he had room to run on some of the plays and he took it. That was something I haven't seen him do much in the past, but very impressive nonetheless.'
