Bills turnovers lead to big Vikings victory -
"A defensive touchdown by the Bills early was all they had to show for a first half that turned ugly in a hurry as Minnesota piled up 31 unanswered points and coasted to a 38-14 victory over Buffalo.

"Their message was simple and soothing: Let us help you iron out your problems. Let us help you rebuild your confidence. Let us put a smile on your face. In the end, the Vikings bounced happily off the field. The 60-minute therapeutic session had worked wonders. They were able to look over their shoulders at the Bills, shake their heads and say: "I'm OK, you're not OK." "

"Football can be a funny game. The Bills doubled their interception total for the season. They forced the NFL's all-time iron man to the sidelines after three plays.

"Nick Mendola's immediate reactions to the Bills 38-14 loss to the Vikings." | Buffalo, NY | Bad Loss Doesn't Change Bills Plan
"The first reaction, and it's totally understandable, is to look at the pitiful game the Bills played at Minnesota and use THAT as more of a measuring stick for this season rather than the three overtime losses against AFC playoff contenders and a couple other tough losses with the two wins thrown in there somewhere."

SCOTT PITONIAK: Vikings Too Much for the Bills -
"The biggest Bills story, though, from this game may be the mounting injuries. With Reggie Torbor and Dwan Edwards already on injured reserve and with the possibility of Hangartner and Urbik joining them, a team already thin on talent just became even thinner. And that means the progress we’ve seen the past seven weeks could be severely retarded down the stretch."
