"A recap of the Week 6 game between the Buffalo Bills and the Cincinnati Bengals. In GIFs." My favorite part of the week.
Not a great day for the offense, as no one earned a grade higher than 3.0. Colin Brown did earn a 0.3 which speaks to his ouster. Stephon Gilmore and his club earn the LVP thanks to multiple targets from the Cincinnati offense.
From the booth: Bengals at Bills - BuffaloBills.com
"After struggling with penalties through the first five games, the Bills had their best day of the season avoiding the yellow flags on Sunday. They finished with four penalties for 27 yards, and some of the calls were dubious at best."

"Legursky will now step in as the full time starter after starting and getting the lion's share of the work last week against Cincinnati. The four-year veteran got 83 percent of the snaps at left guard logging a total of 57 plays Sunday to Brown’s half dozen."

"Fans are encouraged to wear white to the November 3 game to match the players’ road white uniforms and form a ‘white out’ in Ralph Wilson Stadium.

Stevie's return adds inside option for Lewis - BuffaloBills.com
"Adding Johnson to the mix in the middle of the field could serve as a valuable security blanket this Sunday against a Dolphins defense that should be able to ratchet up their pressure this week with the anticipated return of top pass rusher Cameron Wake from injury."
Inside The Bills | Glenn among top 10 tackles
"Glenn ranks as the eighth best tackle in football so far this season by PFF’s standards with an overall rating of 11.3. Of those ranked in the top 10, Glenn’s combination total of sacks (1), QB hits (1) and QB hurries (6) allowed (8) is tied for the second-fewest. Only Cincinnati’s Andrew Whitworth has a lower total with 7 combined sacks, hits and hurries and he’s played in only five games to Glenn’s six."

"When these schedules come out, people evaluate them, you see it in the paper. … I know for me, I look at them, too," Marrone said. "I remember when the schedule first came out, I said it was a pretty tough run right here. … We’ll be faced with some good challenges."

Despite Thad Lewis injury, Buffalo Bills getting healthier - ESPN
"That leaves just one banged-up player whose status is still unclear: quarterback EJ Manuel. The rookie quarterback walked through the locker room Monday showing no obvious signs of the knee sprain that knocked him out of the Cleveland game. Soon after, Marrone said that Manuel is ahead of schedule in his recovery, and should start rehabilitation work this week."

"It's expected, and the Bills are right where they should be. With a 2-4 record, it's hard not to place them in the bottom third of the NFL."
NFL Week 6 Winners and Losers: Shutdown Corner - Yahoo Sports
Winners: "Kiko Alonso and Buffalo's draft class: Alonso, a prime candidate for defensive rookie of the year, had 22 (!!!) total tackles from his middle linebacker spot. Athletic receiver Marquise Goodwin, criminally underused at Texas, scored a 40-yard touchdown with 1:08 to tie the game. Receiver Robert Woods has had his moments, and of course quarterback EJ Manuel looks like he belongs. You can build a consistent winner with draft classes like these."
No silver lining in Bills' close calls - Wellsville Daily Reporter
"At some point, the standard for the Bills should be raised and the players and head coach Doug Marrone sound like they’re not satisfied — which is a good thing."
