[BN] Blitz newsletter: White still favorite for Defensive Rookie of the Year

Halfway through the season, a familiar name is the leading candidate for MVP on Bills beat reporter Vic Carucci’s ballot: The ageless Tom Brady.

And while Tre’Davious White had a rough outing in Thursday night’s loss to the Jets, he remains Carucci’s pick for Defensive Rookie of the Year.

Power rankings: Losing to the Jets dropped the Bills out of Carucci’s top 10. But did they fall lower than next week’s opponent, the New Orleans Saints?

No hiding his feelings: Bills guard Richie Incognito continued to complain about Thursday Night Football games in an interview with the MMQB.com on Friday morning. “He made excellent points about how much he and other players around the league hate the quick turnaround and how difficult it is on them physically,” Carucci writes in his Inside the NFL column.

Giving back: Bills receiver Andre Holmes made a donation that allowed his alma mater, Michigan’s Hillsdale College, to purchase new gray uniforms for the football team to wear in a nationally-televised game.

Notable numbers: In the three seasons Tyrod Taylor has been the Bills’ starting quarterback, his statistics compare favorably to Pittsburgh’s Ben Roethlisberger.
