QUOTE OF THE DAY
GM Buddy Nix
On where he thinks the team can improve:
“We can improve on all fronts, really in every position. I think we are starting to play together better on defense. We will see Sunday—it is what you do this week that counts. We still need to play better on defense and play more consistent on both sides of the ball. I think we are heading in that direction.”

PHOTOS OF THE DAY
The “Billieve” event will serve host to a number of memorable highlights, including outdoor concert performances by local bands and national recording artist Belinda Carlisle, a ceremonial pink lighting of Niagara Falls, and the Hard Rock’s International PINKTOBER living ribbon across the Rainbow Bridge. More info can also be found on Facebook.>>>

The Bills are ready to celebrate a Crucial Catch on Sunday with the pink ribbon NFL game ball, and pink quarterback wristbands and towel.
