Fitzpatrick gives Bills' offense a jump - Bills & NFL - The Buffalo News
"Fitzpatrick, in fact, ranks sixth in the NFL in passing efficiency, with a rating of 99.9. He has thrown seven touchdown passes and two interceptions the past three games. The Bills' gross passing yards have gone up by 73 a game since Fitzpatrick took over."

RB Anderson finds way to stick -
"The odds are long to begin with for an undrafted rookie to stay on an NFL roster beyond early September, be it the 53-man roster or the practice squad. Those odds get even longer when you’re a late training camp addition, as you have little familiarity with your new team’s playbook and your new teammates. But Bills RB Andre Anderson obviously made a heck of a first impression."

OT Green to miss "a few games" -
"It’s just stuff he’s been dealing with and it got a little worse and he pushed it too far last week," said Gailey. "It’s (going to) cost him a few games."

"You know what I like about Ralph Wilson, and when I was covering the league I got to know him a little bit, he doesn’t pass off stuff on other people," said Mike Wilbon. "He comes out and says you know what I made that decision. He says ‘if that guy failed, I brought him in. I didn’t do a good job bringing him in.’ He takes accountability."

Inside The Bills | Fitz focused on here and now "
"I can’t focus on that," he said. "I’ve got to help this team get wins. We’re not looking at three years down the road in here. We’re looking at Baltimore."

"Coaches don't look as anything as a three-year deal. Coaches are trying to win today and I think that's the nature of our business and our profession," says the head coach. "Other than that, I'm trying to win this week. And after this week, I'm going to try and win the next week. So that's the way our job works."

"I mean personally, I don't have time for three years," said Posluszny. "You know, I might not be here. A lot of guys have said in this business nothing is guaranteed. It's not guaranteed that I'm going to be here next week or anybody else, so we've got to start winning now."
