On this given Sunday, resolve finds its reward - Jerry Sullivan - The Buffalo News
George Wilson talked about resiliency and resolve in his post-game interview. Jerry Sullivan expands it to the whole team, but brings special focus to Fred Jackson.

"It was grey, blacked-out and wonderfully just enough. The Buffalo Bills will not be a miserable 0-16 thanks to the Detroit Lions (Get ready for the national media jokes, by the way). When one win makes a difference, it generally is the one that got you into the playoffs, but nay, no sir, not this year."

"The Bills did not make it easy, but Buffalo’s defense was able to preserve enough of an eight-point lead to post the first victory of the Chan Gailey era outlasting Detroit 14-12 on Sunday at Ralph Wilson Stadium. The win ended Buffalo’s eight-game losing streak to start the season and dropped Detroit to their 25th straight defeat on the road stretching back to the 2008 season."

"I want to say I’m amazed, but I’m not," said Gailey. "That’s Buffalo fans. To me, I didn’t expect any different. They are loyal. They love the Bills. They’re with you and they made a difference in the game. You can say what you want, but it is a true statement. They made a difference in the game."

Group effort lets players enjoy that winning feeling - Bob DiCesare - The Buffalo News
"I think it's a collective deal," Williams said. "Like you said, we go out the first play of the game and make a tackle for a loss and get fired up about it and I think that spreads. Then we had guys make big plays throughout the day and they get fired up. One person's not going to keep it up for the whole time. It's got to bounce around out there and it did today."

"It had all the makings of a big day for C.J. Spiller. The Buffalo Bills rookie running back had a 16-yard run on his first carry of the game and added a 29-yard punt return early in the second quarter. But that would be the last play Spiller would make Sunday as he left the game with an injured hamstring."

HAMILTON: The Bills Finally Made Enough Plays - WGR 550 SportsRadio
"So the Bills are tied with Carolina for the NFL's worst record. The team has shown us in the past four weeks that if all you want is the number one overall pick in April, this team could ruin your plans."

Reaction: Bills 14 (!) - Lions 12 - WGR 550 SportsRadio
"The Bills fought hard and squeaked out a win against a dilapidated Detroit Lions squad without their franchise quarterback. But alas, a win it was, and you can never take it away from them. So with that said, congratulations Bills, enjoy it. Job well done."

Wood gets better of Lions star Suh - Sports - The Buffalo News
"Buffalo Bills right guard Eric Wood said early last week that he would have to 'bring his lunch' against Detroit Lions rookie defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh. It must have been a delightful meal."

BRONSTEIN: Winning is no longer necessary - Niagara Gazette
"Buffalo needed this win. It doesn't need another one. The priority now should be to get as many of their young players on the field as possible and let them develop. It’s easy to spot the glaring holes on the roster. It’s harder to figure out how many building blocks are in place. And if the team hopes to be more competitive next season, they don’t want their second- and-third year players learning on the job and making rookie mistakes."
