Downing the Dolphins is always a step forward - Jerry Sullivan - The Buffalo News
"The rivalry isn't what it used to be. We all know that... But you know what? I could almost feel those old emotions bubbling up in the fans Sunday. The Bills beat Miami, 17-14, and it felt different somehow, more meaningful than the wins over Detroit and Cleveland and Cincinnati."

"The D-line did a heck of a job making them one dimensional. Just hats off to the front," said Byrd. "They did a heck of a job; the front seven. We were able to feed off of them. Once they stopped that run, they had to abort what they really wanted to do and go to a different game plan."

Wilson likes progress of his no-names - Sports - The Buffalo News
"It's always good to win a game, and I tell you what, what is hard for me to figure out is how we can win these games when we started out with no players," Wilson said with a hearty laugh. "Our drafts in the last 10 years have been terrible. So I mean, these guys, before each play you read the scorecard to see who's in there. That's what amazes me. We pick up a guy in the middle of the week and he starts on Sunday."
