Jackson off to rare two-game start |
"Through two games Jackson has 337 all-purpose yards, which includes 220 yards rushing, 108 yards receiving and a nine-yard kick return. He’s the team’s leading rusher and receiver. Granted it’s just two games, but only two other running backs in team history have done better after the first two weeks of a season. Hall of Famers O.J. Simpson and Thurman Thomas."

Mark Sanchez, other young quarterbacks making their mark on NFL - Peter King -
"I count six passers 25 or younger -- Ryan, Flacco, Sanchez, Stafford, Trent Edwards of Buffalo and Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers -- as players with exceedingly bright futures."

Tuesday Morning Quarterback lauds coaches who go for it on fourth down - ESPN
"Best Audible of the Week: The Packers of the 1960s would run-run-run, then on third-and-short, throw deep. It's a tried-and-true formula. Game scoreless, Buffalo came to the line on third-and-1 at the City of Tampa 32. Expecting a run, the Bucs were in a rush defense, and the call radioed into Trent Edwards' helmet was a run. Seeing the defense he audibled to a double-go pass, and hit Lee Evans for six."

How I See It: AFC East Stock Watch - AFC East - ESPN
Stock Rising: Fred Jackson. You can't even call Jackson a castoff because nobody really ever wanted him. Jackson ranks fifth in rushing with 220 yards and has added 108 more yards receiving. He rushed for a career-high 163 yards in Sunday's romp over the Buccaneers.

Trent invades RSN |
Trent discusses Bills players being targeted, the Patriots game, T.O., New Orleans, time of possession, and the 50th Anniversary celebration. Also, a "pivot" is apparently a quarterback in Canada, not a center.

MMQB - Peter King -
I think Marshawn Lynch must be getting very nervous about his job. I would be. Fred Jackson's been one of the Bills' five most important players in the first two weeks of the season. After the Patriots couldn't tackle him last week, Jackson had the best rushing day of his life (28 carries, 163 yards). Every team needs two good backs, and Buffalo has two.

Curran: Patriots, Titans feeling heat in Week 3 - NFL-
Here’s a question: Will the Bills continue to run their no-huddle offense and risk handing the ball back to Drew Brees time after time given the potency New Orleans has shown so far? Brees has only been sacked twice in 68 attempts and the Bills have managed just three sacks in their first two games.
