Marker Lawyer makes Pats pay for divorce [9:03 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"It definitely feels good," Milloy said of beating his former team. "But it feels good in a positive way, not a personal vendetta way." Yeah, right.'

Marker Patriots' act suffers from missing Milloy [9:02 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"We just didn't play well," Belichick said. "We didn't play well, we didn't coach well, we didn't do anything well. We just got beat."'

Marker After turning heads, Bills keep theirs on straight [9:01 AM]

Marker Adams' 37-yard touchdown gallop provides day's biggest smiles [9:01 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"I'll be honest," said safety Pierson Prioleau. "I didn't know he could move that fast. But I did know he was a fierce competitor.

Marker Patriots overruled [8:13 AM]
Portland Press Herald reports: 'In the end, Buffalo beat New England 31-0 - the worst season-opening loss in Patriots' history - and the game really wasn't that close.'

Marker Still holding court, on the field and off [8:13 AM]
Portland Press Herald reports: 'The Patriots insisted Milloy's departure and consequent signing with Buffalo was not a distraction this week, that they had moved on. Well, he was certainly a distraction on the field.'

Marker Secondary expects growing pains [8:12 AM]
Portland Press Herald reports: '"It was important for us to hold them to no points," said defensive tackle Sam Adams. "Because if you hold them to no points, we can win every game."'

Marker A sunny D-light [5:36 AM]

Marker Debut of new defense is simply smashing [5:35 AM]

Marker Glorious win, but it's just one [5:34 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Bills LB Takeo Spikes: How about that for a debut? Two interceptions, a pass deflection when he leveled Troy Brown on a play over the middle, enough raw energy and emotion to light up the dark side of the moon. He is exactly what the Bills have lacked since the departure of Cornelius Bennett — a playmaking linebacker.'

Marker If the Bills keep winning, MNF will be a big loser [5:31 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Week 1 couldn’t have been better for the Bills. Not only did they crush New England 31-0, but Miami, New England and the New York Jets all lost and looked lousy in the process.'

Marker Buffalo Bills report card [5:30 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'With the 500-pound Belichick gorilla off his back, Gregg Williams had a bounce in his step. Smart game plans by Kevin Gilbride, Jerry Gray and Dick LeBeau helped Bills turned tide on Patriots, who dominated both meetings a year ago.'

Marker Bills get plenty of ink from prognosticators [5:29 AM]
Business First of Buffalo reports: 'Yes, the forecast is for 10 victories and a playoff spot for the Bills and, though I do so with some hesitation, I admit to joining the believers who see a return to the playoffs and a contract extension for Williams.'

Marker Bills make Pats pay [5:28 AM]
Toronto Sun reports: '"What we said from Day 1 is that our team has to get better around (Bledsoe)," said Bills coach Gregg Williams. "Drew just has to play quarterback. As a team, last year we weren't good enough."'

Marker Revenge is sweet [5:27 AM]
Toronto Sun reports: 'In the team's walk-through on Saturday, Bills coach Gregg Williams asked Milloy how many downs he could play. "He looked me in the eye and said, 'I want to play in every one of them,' " Williams said. "That's all I needed to know."'

Marker Buffalo defence spikes Patriots [5:26 AM]

Marker Sunday Stroll [5:25 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'The Bills opened their season with a 31-0 shutout of the New England Patriots on a day when floating beach balls and shirtless patrons seemed appropriate for the balmy weather. It started with a star-spangled display that included a giant American flag, chants of "U-S-A, U-S-A" from the 73,262 in attendance and a military fly-over that nearly skimmed the light stanchions.'

Marker Sunday worst [5:24 AM]
Boston Globe reports: 'If there was one other undeniable fact about the Bills, it was that their revamped defense seems like it may be special.'

Marker Milloy looks good in new outfit [5:23 AM]
Boston Globe reports: 'This was a day when Sam Adams had Patriots fans reaching for Jack Daniels.'

Marker A pick-and-rumble play [5:22 AM]
Boston Globe reports: 'Huffin' and puffin', his legs the size of pistons on an oceanliner, Sam Adams cruised -- literary license employed liberally -- 37 yards with an interception yesterday and provided the backbreaking score in Buffalo's 31-0 thumping of the Patriots at Ralph Wilson Stadium.'

Marker An unheeded safety alert [5:21 AM]
Boston Globe reports: 'To have so miscalculated not only Milloy's market value but also his value to the team both on and off the field is bad enough. To continue to profess no understanding of what he had done, even after Milloy played such a central role in stuffing his offense, gives one cause to wonder if this man has the slightest clue how human beings operate.'

Marker Secondary's first outing third-rate [5:20 AM]
Boston Globe reports: 'Once again, we were reminded that there simply is no substitute for experience. Ty Law (No. 24) and Antwan Harris (No. 23) may be locker room neighbors, but the veteran corner and new (five days, and counting) starting safety seemed worlds apart yesterday on the field. And there were times that youngsters Asante Samuel and Eugene Wilson looked a little lost.'

Marker Were Redskins offside in episode? [5:19 AM]
Boston Globe reports: 'An NFL spokesman said the league was "looking into" the matter, but it didn't appear there was an all-out investigation. Milloy told the Globe and last week that Poston had sought deals for him even before the Patriots released him. After yesterday's game, Milloy told reporters there was no contact with other teams prior to his release by New England.'
