"Actually Chad played a lot better than I anticipated he would," said Chan Gailey. "We’ll go through the rest of the week, but the way he played he certainly deserves to start this week and we’ll see how we handle the rotation and how we work that. Cord came out of the game pretty sore so that might have something to do with it in itself."

"You look at that, and you’re first thought is, ‘Oh no,"’ Fitzpatrick said Monday. "But I’ll tell you what, as I told you guys in the preseason, these three guys that we have - Naaman Roosevelt included - they can all play."

Defense has reversal of fortune -
"The Bills allowed season lows in points, first downs (nine), total net yards (187), net passing yards (82), net rushing yards (105) and time of possession (23:50)."

Inside The Bills | I-R possibility for Evans
"I know it’s going to be two (games) and it might even be a struggle for him to get back for the last one," said Gailey of Evans. "They’re going to give us updates on a daily basis, but it doesn’t look good for him right now."

Inside The Bills | Wood’s play not a surprise
"Eric did a nice job. He handled things well," said Chan Gailey. "I think people were somewhat surprised by that, but we weren’t at all. We fully expected him to go in there and be able to do what he did. That was a nose man that had played pretty well against some people in the past. I thought it was a positive the way he was able to go fill in and play."

Inside The Bills | Bills to add a WR?
"We’re going to talk about it," said Gailey. "You’d rather not go with just four, especially if you think you’re going to play somewhat of a high percentage of four wides in the game. But sometimes other positions dictate that you can’t go with five so we’ll see."

"A sprained shoulder from a hit by Bills rookie linebacker Arthur Moats caused an injury so severe that even Favre couldn't bounce back. And that's saying a lot for a guy who has played through broken bones, torn muscles and an assortment of other body aches."

Spiraling Jets may need to beat Bills - Jerry Sullivan - The Buffalo News
"Two months ago, it seemed the Jets might not have anything at stake when they played the Bills in the season finale on Jan. 2. They were riding high, a prime candidate for the top seed in the AFC and home-field advantage in the postseason. But suddenly, it looks as if the Jets could be fighting for their playoff lives against the Bills."

This Day in Buffalo Sports History: Going out with a thud - Sports, Ink - The Buffalo News
"The Bills were well out of the playoff picture by the end of the '69 season, and the final game took them to San Diego. It was definitely "run for the bus time" for Buffalo. The Chargers handed the Bills a 45-6 loss. And it wasn't that close."
