Bills

Every offseason, teams often look to sign free agents who have ties to their coaching staff. As it currently stands, the 2018 Bills coaching staff will mainly be the same as it was in 2017. However, there are new faces at offensive coordinator, wide receiver coach, and defensive backs coach. For your convenience, here is a compilation of logical player-coach connect…

Pro Football Focus released its first "QB Annual," a 296-page report on everything regarding NFL quarterbacks during the 2017 season. Of course there is a plethora of information on Tyrod Taylor, and one of the most notable aspects of PFF's evaluation of him quantifies his strength and highlights his weakness. Out of 40 qualifying signal-callers, Taylor finished 27th…

Bills

Tre'Davious White ended his high-caliber rookie season for the Bills with a statement game against the Jaguars in the opening round of the playoffs. The first-year cornerback was thrown at three times and did not allow a catch. He broke up one pass — that he nearly intercepted. That equated to a passer rating of 39.6 for Blake Bortles. His Pro Football Focus coverage…

Bills

His injured ankle was talked about at length during the week before the Bills' playoff game, and LeSean McCoy didn't appear to be slowed by it whatsoever against the Jaguars on Sunday. He carried the ball 19 times for 75 yards (3.9 yards per carry) and caught six passes for 44 yards. His 119 total yards marked the ninth time in 17 games McCoy went over the 100-yard mark…

Bills

In a game dominated by stellar defense, which made it especially difficult for each team's aerial attack, the Bills couldn't afford to drop many passes against the Jaguars. Unfortunately, Buffalo was credited by Pro Football Focus with three drops in their playoff loss. LeSean McCoy, Deonte Thompson and Nick O'Leary were the culprits, and two of the three drops came …

Bills

Tyrod Taylor completed 19 of 27 attempts (70.3 percent) for 204 yards (7.56 yards per attempt) with one touchdown in the Bills' regular-season finale against the Dolphins, his second game of the season with a completion percentage of at least 70 and a yards-per-attempt average of 7.5 or higher. The other outing game in a Week Three win over the Broncos. In Miami, Taylor…

Latest Bills

Some important members of the Bills coaching staff have relatively recent experience facing the Jaguars. Last year, offensive coordinator Rick Dennison was the offensive coordinator for the Broncos when they traveled to Jacksonville and emerged victorious 20-10. As the defensive coordinator for the Panthers, Sean McDermott opened the 2015 regular season against Blake Bo…

Bills

Jaguars left tackle Cam Robinson, who was limited in Wednesday's practice with an abdomen injury returned to the field on Thursday and was a full participant. Fellow Jacksonville lineman Brandon Linder was a new add to the injury report, as he was limited with a shoulder injury. Linder finished the regular season as Pro Football Focus' sixth-highest graded center. Backu…

Bills

Tyrod Taylor helped orchestrate the Bills' berth in the playoffs, and to some, he was a hindrance on Buffalo's offense. To others, he was effective in his role as the team's low-volume quarterterback. Here are Taylor's regular-season finishes in an assortment of advanced statistics and their rank among qualifying quarterbacks: Pro Football Focus Overall Grade: 84.1 …

Bills

The regular-season finale marked the third-consecutive game in which Tyrod Taylor averaged more than 7.0 yards per attempt, an efficiency benchmark for quarterbacks in the NFL. He finished the contest in Miami 19 of 27 for 204 yards (7.56 yards per attempt) with one touchdown and no interceptions, which equated to a passer rating of 104.6. After his highest yards-per-at…

Bills

Pro Football Focus released its All-Pro team for the 2017 season, and Bills rookie cornerback Tre'Davious White was listed on the Second Team. White was one of two rookies to make either first or second team — Saints running back Alvin Kamara was the other. Chargers cornerback Casey Hayward and Jaguars second-year corner Jalen Ramsey were PFF's two First-Teamers at t…

Jaguars owner Shad Khan has made a kind gesture ahead of the team's playoff matchup against the Bills on Sunday. He's donated 1,000 total tickets to refugees who've settled in Northwest Florida and displaced citizens from Puerto Rico. From the Jaguars' official press release (via Jordan Ferrell): "Shad Khan and the Jaguars Foundation have donated 500 tickets to Su…

Bills

Tre'Davious White deserves the attention he's currently receiving following a standout rookie season for the Bills at the cornerback position. But his secondary mate, E.J. Gaines, pieced together a fine campaign of his own and put an exclamation mark on it against the Dolphins in Miami. The fourth-year cornerback out of Missouri received an overall Pro Football Focus gr…

Bills

Tre'Davious White was surprisingly "giving" to Dolphins wideouts in Week 17, but he was stout in run-support and reliable as a tackler to cap a spectacular regular season as a rookie in the NFL. White allowed all four targets in his coverage area to be caught for 45 yards, which equated to a passer rating of 113.5. It marked the only game in 2017 in which White surrende…
