Richie Incognito is relentless. His motor just won’t quit, his enthusiasm for the game just won’t die. His mouth? Yeah, that doesn’t tire either. On any given day, his voice can be heard over the locker room chatter and the occasional freestyle battle raps in one corner of the room. When he’s not offering insight into the Bills’ offensive schemes and the…

LeSean McCoy shook his head repeatedly, knowing all too well how close he came to completely blowing it. The savvy veteran couldn’t believe what he had done — or better yet, what he had failed to do — in the most critical of moments, with a Bills win hanging precariously in the balance. “I mean, that can’t happen,” the running back said, clearly frustrate…

It took six weeks, but LeSean McCoy finally found his way into the end zone. It was a score he desperately needed, but also a much-needed touchdown for a Bills team engaged in a field-goal battle with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers throughout the opening quarter. But it was McCoy’s late-game miscue that almost helped seal the Bills' fate -- that is, until he scored for the …

Leslie Frazier often says a prayer. He asks for wisdom. For guidance. And, above all else, the best way to help a dear friend. The 58-year-old has only served as the Bills' defensive coordinator for nine months, but his foremost role has always been as confidant and trusted adviser to Sean McDermott. Their bond dates back almost two decades to their time working u…

The tension was palpable, the air filled with words unspoken. Tyrod Taylor already had said his piece, yet the questions kept coming. His audience wanted to know more about his mental makeup, his motivation and his mettle as an NFL signal-caller. But Taylor shifted the conversation to where he was most comfortable: the football field. “I don’t necessarily hear…

For three quarters, they were a shell of themselves. Mere mortals on the field, and nothing more. These New England Patriots didn’t elicit fear in their opponents, nor did they resemble the perennial power they’ve come to be. The Jets could sense it. And they preyed upon that vulnerability. The fabled Patriots mystique had disintegrated long before Tom Brady and …

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Jamal Adams could barely speak. The rookie safety finally got a taste of the emotional intensity of the Jets-Patriots rivalry. And he now was furious. “Man, that call was unreal. I don’t even wanna talk about it,” Adams said, shaking his head, inside the Jets locker room. “Unreal.” Down the hall, within the bowels of MetLife Sta…

Over the course of a 40-minute interview with The Buffalo News, Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor opened up about a variety of topics, including his detractors, the “unfair” box mobile quarterbacks are often put in and his goal of getting the Bills their first Super Bowl championship. Here are some additional nuggets from Taylor’s one-on-one, sit-down interview with …

Tyrod Taylor has heard it all. As elusive as he is, and as many times as he’s likened to a magician outside of the pocket, his critics will only see the deficiencies in his game. Naysayers are nothing new for the Hampton, Va., native, just more nonbelievers in a string of doubters who threatened to derail his journey to the pros. But to understand Taylor, you must …

In the face of potential problems, Lorenzo Alexander refused to be anything but positive. “There’s going to come a day where we can’t stop nothing. And we’re going to need them to put up 40 points,” the Bills' veteran linebacker had told me, while discussing the team's offensive woes in their Week Two loss to the Panthers. “That’s why it’s a team.” …

It was all there for the taking – for the Buffalo Bills as a team, and Tyrod Taylor more specifically. This was another moment to prove the naysayers wrong, another chance to show that the underdogs deserved to be kings of the yard. And for most of Sunday’s game in Cincinnati, the Bills appeared close to closing out an upset over the struggling Bengals. But bad h…

Bills head coach Sean McDermott insisted he has all the confidence in the world in his receiving corps. Even after the loss of Jordan Matthews. Even after the team re-signed Philly Brown on Tuesday. The lack of production from the position group and Matthews’ indefinite absence due to thumb surgery haven’t shaken McDermott’s resolve (at least not publicly) nor …

Latest Bills

Sean McDermott sounded banal and bland as always, reciting the same lines we’ve come to expect every time he steps behind the podium. It’s a process. Trust the process. Focus on the process. Originality certainly is not his calling card. Witty banter isn’t really his forte. But while his predictability oftentimes bores me, there was something differen…

Feeling good Bills fans? Of course you are. Why wouldn’t you? Your team is off to its best start since 2011, and in the first four weeks of the season has turned the “tank” chatter into talk of a legitimate playoff run. Impressive. But don’t expect head coach Sean McDermott to publicly partake in your merriment. In fact, I can almost promise you that he’…
