Bills ambushed in Dallas -
"The Dallas Cowboys offense has a streaky quarterback and a couple of elite playmakers. In the first half of Buffalo’s road tilt with Dallas, Tony Romo was hot and his playmakers delivered in a game that was over at halftime and didn’t change much in the second half of what became a 44-7 final."

Bills know there are problems to solve -
"After their loss to the Jets, the men in Buffalo’s locker room felt it was their own lackluster play that cost them an important division game at home two weeks ago. After their second consecutive lopsided defeat the feeling has changed to genuine concern. At 5-4 the margin for error for the Bills has been significantly reduced. Going on the road again this week to face a Miami team that’s finally on track with two straight victories has Buffalo’s players determined to find answers."

Wood could miss Miami game -
"It’s a knee injury. To what extent they did not tell me," Gailey said. "I would doubt that he is ready for this week. It might happen, but I would doubt that he’s ready for this week."

I am genuinely sad I don't have time to listen to this presser this morning. You should anyways.

Inside The Bills | Kyle Williams update
" has confirmed that Williams had bone spurs on his heel, which can be painful enough in their own right. Those bone spurs were then pushing on his Achilles tendon. The bone spurs were so painful that Williams had a hole cut in the back of every one of his left-footed cleats to make the pain more bearable while he was still playing."

Inside The Bills | Nelson’s cheerleader visit
"Obviously I wanted to do more and for it to be a little more special, but being down 14 I didn’t want to do too much because I’m not that kind of person," said Nelson. "If it had been a better situation I would’ve done a little more."

Rough Day in Dallas - The Buffalo News
"Here are a few of the pertinent statistics from the Bills' 44-7 loss today at Cowboys Stadium. You might want to shield your eyes and hide it from the kids. The numbers aren't pretty:"

No use in pretending about this team's flaws - Jerry Sullivan
"The Jets game was one thing. It was sobering to watch them get manhandled by a contender. Still, you could dismiss it as the sort of one-week slip-up that every team suffers in today's NFL. But it was especially troubling to see them beaten even more soundly the following week."

Cowboys, Romo catch Bills defenseless - The Buffalo News
"Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo might as well have played Sunday's game in a tuxedo. He could have left Cowboys Stadium without taking a shower. He could have sent text messages before throwing some of his passes."

Wood likely to miss a game with knee injury - The Buffalo News
"The Bills' injury report could be quite lengthy this week. Also leaving the game with injuries were wide receiver Stevie Johnson (shoulder), strong safety George Wilson (stinger) and rookie linebacker Chris White (knee)."

Players vow to keep up the good fight - The Buffalo News
"Perhaps the Bills' prospects will improve next Sunday in Miami, but nothing can be taken for granted when your offense has scored two touchdowns over the last eight quarters and your defense has been lambasted for nearly 800 yards of over the same span. "

Dallas Cowboys romp past Buffalo Bills | Democrat and Chronicle
"Right now we are more of a pretender than a contender," Gailey said after watching his suddenly overmatched team get blown away in front of more than 85,000 boisterous Texans, Buffalo's second straight lopsided and sobering defeat.

Musings: Dallas Cowboys have Buffalo Bills' number | Democrat and Chronicle
"For a team that the Bills see only once every four years, the Cowboys sure seem to inflict an awful lot of horror on Buffalo. No one will ever forget the two Super Bowl losses, and then there was the Monday night meltdown game in 2007 at the Ralph when the Bills lost in inexplicable fashion, and now Sunday's 44-7 annihilation. Here's the reason: The Cowboys have almost always been better than the Bills, and they still are."

Reaction: Cowboys 44 - Bills 7 - WGR 550
"The Buffalo Bills have been exposed two weeks in a row. Now with two straight games against division opponents, the remainder of the season may hang in the balance. Two weeks ago, didn't you look at the the Dolphins game with the utmost confidence? Present day, I think there is a festering fear that Miami could send the Bills in to a further tailspin. Or maybe, the Dolphins could be just what the doctor ordered for Buffalo. Needless to say, this coming week just got a whole lot more interesting -- and not in a good way."

Wrap-up: Cowboys 44, Bills 7 - AFC East Blog - ESPN
"Expect plenty of doubters to start writing off the Bills as a true contender to win the AFC East. They certainly didn't look the part Sunday. Dallas dominated the game from the beginning, taking a 28-7 halftime lead, and Buffalo never had a chance. It was a disappointing start for the Bills in their pivotal, three-game road trip."
