Bills air it out in losing cause - Bills & NFL - The Buffalo News
"The Buffalo Bills threw the ball a whopping 51 times on Sunday. It marked a career high for quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, as were his 31 completions. The pass attempts were the fourth-most ever in a game by a Bills quarterback and only four short of the team record set by Joe Ferguson on Oct. 9, 1983 at Miami."

"Great play call by Chan," said Ryan Fitzpatrick of the interception play. "We wanted to get the ball down the field. Obviously it was a little bit short. And that was the difference in the game. That play right there was the one that I don’t know if it would’ve iced it or not, but I would’ve liked to hit that to Stevie. It’s unfortunate for the guys. They played hard."

"For the third straight week, they showed why they’re a winless team. You can’t keep making the same crucial mistakes and expect to win close games. I put most of the blame on Ryan Fitzpatrick."

"As for the Bills, they can take some solace in another big day for Steve Johnson and the fact that they won't have to go to Toronto again this season. They are now 0-3 over the last three years when they cross the border, but that doesn't change the fact that it is getting harder to find where the wins are going to come on the Buffalo schedule."

Bills Toronto Series
Dome field was no advantage to a team that needed it - Jerry Sullivan - The Buffalo News

"Sunday's 22-19 loss to the Bears broke new ground. It was the first time I felt that playing a home game here had actually cost the Bills a victory. But there's no getting around the fact that they played a home game at a neutral site, before a crowd that was decidedly pro-Chicago."

Does Toronto want our NFL team? | Lockport Union-Sun & Journal Online
Is Ralph Wilson laughing all the way to the bank? Will the Bills move to Toronto? All these questions are answered by fans.

CANOE -- SLAM! Sports - NFL - Quiet crowd helped Bears
"It was quiet, which made it easy for him (Bears quarterback Jay Cutler) to make some checks out there and easy for him to tell his receivers what to do," Whitner said. "If we were at home things might have been different with our crowd noise."

CANOE -- SLAM! Sports - NFL - Wilson wins, but his Bills lose
"The Bills may not lose a million games in Toronto or anywhere else, but what they've lost in this football sellout is a home crowd, and all that goes along with home-field advantage in the NFL. The owner got his money; The team got nothing."

Cox: Bills still winless, but building Toronto momentum - thestar.com
Damien Cox says the Bills Toronto Series is a success. He says only about one or two sporting events a year draw more fans than the 50k+ that were at yesterday's game. Plus the Bills were competitive.

Canada a catch for NFL - The Globe and Mail
"In the meantime, it is starting to feel, well, normal. One more date on the sporting calendar, one more chance to see something a little different, that sometimes will be terrific and sometimes will be dead ordinary, which if you know football and you like football, Canadian or American, is pretty much par for the course."

O-For-Canada - National Post
"Well, at least this time it was a game, a proper game, with drama and everything. The two previous times the Buffalo Bills had ventured north of the border in the regular season in search of good football and cash, they only really came away the cash, and then only because it was guaranteed anyway. The last two times, nobody went home terribly impressed. This time there was at least heartbreak on the menu, if not for the plurality of fans who seemed to be rooting for the Chicago Bears in their 22-19 victory in front of an announced crowd of 50,746 at the Rogers Centre."

Bills playing homeless in T.O. - National Post
"Apparel is, admittedly, a wholly unscientific way to measure allegiances, but there was no disputing that among the masses milling around outside the Toronto stadium before kickoff, there were far more people wearing the navy and orange of the Bears than the blue and red of the Bills."

Buzz more like a whisper in Bills Toronto Series - NFL - Yahoo! Sports
Sunday's game at Rogers Centre wasn't a hot ticket. "To be quite honest, I got the tickets for free," said Ryan Scott, 27, from Hamilton, Ontario. "I would rather pay to go to Buffalo than watch it here."

John Czarnecki: "Although he said all the right things with the Buffalo media, former Chargers OLB Shawne Merriman wasn’t happy about being claimed off waivers. Merriman, who is in the last year of his contract, definitely won’t be re-signing with the Bills, who are clearly in need of outside linebackers."
