Bills make forward progress before falling to Ravens - Bills & NFL - The Buffalo News
"He was stood up and then he fell out forward," Gailey said. "They're going to call that [a fumble], because if he fell out forward and has got the ball, they're gonna give you the forward progress. If you get pushed back and you fumble, they'll probably give you the forward progress and don't call it [a fumble]. And that was the explanation that the referee gave me on our sideline." | Buffalo, NY | Bills Should Rethink Draft Priorities
"Which brings us to the question all Bills fans have been asking all season long: which quarterback will the Bills take with what will likely be the #1 or #2 pick overall next April? Andrew Luck? Jake Locker? Ryan Mallett? How 'bout none of the above, unless what we've been seeing over the past few Bills games - all losses of course - is a mirage."

Gutsy game shows team not out of its league - Jerry Sullivan - The Buffalo News
"If nothing else, this should put an end to the nonsense about the Bills being capable of losing to a UFL team. But if anyone thinks some minor league team could do what the Bills did here Sunday, he's taken too many shots to the head. No collection of rejects could have walked into M&T Bank Stadium, on a day when the Ravens honored their 2000 Super Bowl team, and scared the daylights out of one of the best teams in the NFL."

Bills drop heartbreaker in overtime -
"The Bills controlled the game for the first quarter and a half building up a 24-10 lead, only to watch it turn into a 34-24 deficit in the fourth quarter after turnovers led to 17 Baltimore points. Ryan Fitzpatrick orchestrated a late comeback on a career-high passing day to force overtime, only to see a controversial turnover lead to the winning points for Baltimore as Billy Cundiff kicked a 38-yard field goal for a 37-34 final leaving Buffalo winless on the season."

Once again, the Bills' secondary was victimized by an opposing tight end. Todd Heap scored two touchdowns on catches of 26 and 14 yards."
