Marrone: Bills, Watkins 'have to work on winning and growing up'
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins did not have one of his finest moments during Sunday's win against the Jets. Although the rookie receiver had a career-high 157 receiving yards on just three catches, Watkins was tackled 5 yards short of the goal line following an 84-yard reception in the second quarter because he began celebrating too early.

Although Watkins made up for the gaffe with a 61-yard touchdown later in the game, needless to say coach Doug Marrone chose to use Watkins' mistake as a learning moment for the first-round pick.

"I said, 'There were people on that sideline' -- meaning his teammates -- 'that were upset. We're playing our butts off and we don't have time for stuff like that,'" Marrone said, per ESPN. "Those are the things we have to work on -- winning and growing up."

Sammy Watkins finally shows off big-play ability
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

It took a while, but Bills rookie wide receiver Sammy Watkins certain seems to have figured things out, after his second 100-yard receiving performance in a row in Week 8.

Watkins has given us the full breadth of his skillset over the last two weeks. While he dominated the Vikings as a possession-type receiver in Week 7, he simply blew the Jets away Sunday. He had just three receptions, but went  off for 157 yards, with catches of 84 and 61 yards, the latter of which went for a touchdown.

Watkins was considered one of the best receiving prospects in years coming out of college, and he has shown why so far. He nearly had two touchdowns, but celebrated a bit too early on a second-quarter catch and was dragged down at the 5-yard line.

There are still going to be some growing pains, as he showed with a 27-yard performance in Week 6. Still, Watkins is on pace for 76 receptions, 1,180 yards and 10 touchdowns at the halfway point of his rookie season, and is probably too explosive to consider benching.

Sammy Watkins keys high-powered Bills air attack in Week 8 win
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins caught three passes for a team-high 157 yards and one touchdown while receiving six targets in his team's 43-23 win over the Jets in Week 8.

Watkins could have had two touchdowns on the day, but he appeared to slow down while close to the end zone on a huge play and was caught from behind on what would have been an 89-yard score. Still, even though quarterback Kyle Orton completed just 10 passes in the blowout win, Watkins was able to deliver a big line on the strength of the 84-yard play and a 61-yard fourth-quarter catch. He's up to 38 receptions, 590 yards and five touchdowns in eight games.

Several other Bills were able to reach paydirt as well in the win, with Robert Woods catching three passes for 50 yards and a touchdown, tight end Scott Chandler scoring a 12-yard touchdown on his only reception and tight end Lee Smith managing two catches for five yards and a score.

The Bills head into a Week 9 bye with a 5-3 record before facing the Chiefs in Week 10.
