WGR 550 SportsRadio - All-22 Review - Bills/Falcons - Rough Game, Eh?

"This week's overtime loss to the Atlanta Falcons can be heaped onto the pile of missed opportunities for the 2013 Buffalo Bills. You know about the two fumbles that cost the team dearly, but there were bigger issues on the day.

"At 4-8, it would be prudent for the Bills to see what they have on the roster in the setting of regular season games."

Toronto Series

Bills admit Toronto lacking in dome-field advantage - Sports - The Buffalo News
"One of the things I said … on Jan. 1 of this year was I was going to review every phase of this operation, and this series comes within that framework," Brandon said on his weekly WGR radio show. "I’m going to look at it very closely."

"It's uncertain what Brandon can do about the series. The Bills and Toronto officials just renewed the agreement in January for another five years, and it would seem unlikely the Bills would pay what would be a substantial fee to get out of the deal.
