Bills DE Mario Williams poses for a picture with Associate Director of the Ronald McDonald House Charities of W.N.Y. Maureen Wopperer after donating an Xbox One to the Phil Hansen Room earlier this week. The Ronald McDonald House provides a place for families with hospitalized children to stay during medical treatment, and includes a Bills-themed room that bears the name of former DE Phil Hansen, who funded the space with a $10,000 donation.

QUOTE OF THE DAY
DOUG MARRONE, Buffalo Bills Head Coach
Q: Being 4-8, how important is it for this team to separate this season from what has come before?
A: I think it’s extremely important.  I think there are a couple of things, and a lot of people don’t like to talk about it.  Mathematically we are not out of this thing.  Even though it may be difficult for you to talk about it, it’s still there in front of us.  Now, if you look too far down the road, I think you can get yourself in trouble, so all of our focus is on this next game.  But make no mistake about it, it is darn important, what we have, and I go back to the same thing. We team right now that has quite a bit of players coming back, so how we perform and how we move forward, is extremely important to building a foundation of how we may start and be able to get going next year. Now, I’m going to tell you this because some of you guys are going to remember what I just said,  I do believe that you don’t start where you left off, but I do believe in a foundation and a philosophy that needs to be in place which we will have after year one.
