1. Sean McDermott delivers this stern message on Friday

Bills head coach Sean McDermott made his weekly appearance on WGR 550's Howard and Jeremy show where he discussed the incident that transpired in Thursday night's NFL game between the Cleveland Browns and Pittsburgh Steelers along with getting the Bills to play fearless again.

McDermott does not stand by the action taken by Cleveland's Myles Garrett.

"There's no place in the game for that," McDermott said. "We talked about it this morning in the team meeting just to make sure we are on the same page. When you take someone's well-being into your own hands that's crossing the line. We like to believe we do things right. It is a physical, aggressive sport but there is a line."

As the season goes on players can get distracted by the load of information they've received so far. McDermott wants his players to not get bogged down and get back to a faster style of play.

"All of us together, coaches and players need to do it how we normally do it and be decisive. Let's not get into playing hesitant. When you play this game hesitantly, because it is an aggressive game, it's a contact sport, you lose. I want our team playing fast, physical, aggressive with great decisiveness and clarity around what is expected each play and their roles in particular.

2. Bleacher Report picks this Bill to break out for the rest of the season

Bleacher Report listed one player for each NFL team that can break out before the end of the season. For the Bills, it's rookie running back Devin Singletary.

Following his best game as a pro against the Washington Redskins, logging 20 carries for 95 yards and a touchdown, Devin Singletary only had eight rushing attempts for 42 yards against the Cleveland Browns' 27th-ranked run defense in Week 10.

The Buffalo Bills seem hesitant to turn over the reins to Singletary, but he's averaging an impressive 6.4 yards per carry compared to Frank Gore's 4.0-yard rate.

Buffalo has used a running back by committee approach the entire season, using Singletary and Gore in different situations.

Buffalo signed Gore, who's 36 years old, to a one-year deal and selected Singletary in the third round of the 2019 draft. The latter's efficiency and potential should put him in the driver's seat to finish the season.

Going into Week 11, Singletary has 48 rushing attempts, but his fresh legs could allow him to handle 10-15 carries per game through the final seven weeks. He's also a pass-catching threat with 15 receptions for 111 yards and a touchdown.

3. NFL.com praises the Bills for a trio of free agent signings

NFL.com analyst Gil Brandt rounded up the top 10 free agent bargains from the past offseason of players who are outplaying their current contract values. Three players from the Buffalo Bills appear on the list.

At No. 4 is John Brown.

With 680 receiving yards so far, Brown has the most receiving yards for a Bills players in the first nine games of a season since Lee Evans posted 700 in 2008. He's also already outpaced any Bills player from Josh Allen's rookie 2018 season, providing a real value to the team as the quarterback continues to develop.

At No. 7 is Frank Gore.

The amazing Gore is providing legitimate production as a 36-year-old running back, picking up 4.0 yards per carry with two scores this season, while also serving as a team leader in terms of preparedness and off-field success.

At No. 10 is Lorenzo Alexander.

He's a veteran role model on pace for 67 tackles while serving as a key rotation player on one of the NFL's top defenses.
