NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says he is confident the Bills will stay in Western New York provided that improvements are made to Ralph Wilson Stadium.  Goodell spoke with about 100 season ticket holders on Sunday before the game and says the county will have to step up to make investments to the stadium facility.  He says the new labor agreement with the players provides for enhanced revenue sharing for the smaller market teams but says work is needed on the stadium to keep the Bills competitive.  The Bills lease expires in the summer of 2013.

Bills fans at Ralph Wilson Stadium may have enjoyed the victory over the Eagles a bit too much on Sunday.  Police say seven people were arrested for drunk driving following the game.  The Erie County Sheriff's department, state police and Orchard Park police say they beefed up patrols after the game.  In all, 25 people were arrested at the Stadium.  State police say more than 70 speeding tickets were issued in the hours following the game.
