Any Bills fan needing a boost in the middle of the work week need only look at the NFL standings. There at the top of the AFC East, alone in first place, are the Buffalo Bills. A 3-1 start has Western New York buzzing -- even if the team itself isn’t letting early success get inside their heads. “We’ve got a lot of room to grow as a football team,” coach Sean McD…

In recent years, people have often asked me, "Who do you think will get back to the playoffs first, the Bills or the Sabres?" Generally, I fumble for a response. Predicting success for either team is an Olympian leap of faith. It's a lot easier to talk about how long it has been since Buffalo's two major sports franchises have been in the playoffs. The Bills have mis…

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 different abou…

Buffalo News Sports Columnists Bucky Gleason and Jerry Sullivan discussed the Bills’ big win in Atlanta during their weekly radio show on 1270 The Fan on Monday. Bucky: "The last time I had this feeling was 05-06, with the Buffalo Sabres."

Column as I see 'em, Week Four: On the day he traded Sammy Watkins and Ronald Darby, General Manager Brandon Beane grew indignant when it was suggested that the Bills were tanking. Beane said giving up was not in his nature, and that it was possible to build for the future while also being competitive in the present. It was easy to be skeptical that day. But by Sunda…

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’ll be the …

Did we learn Sunday the Buffalo Bills have their own LaVar Ball? We certainly know Robert Jones, father of rookie receiver Zay Jones, was a far more accomplished athlete than Lonzo Ball's blowhard daddy. But Robert Jones, while in Mercedes-Benz Stadium to watch the Bills play the Atlanta Falcons, went after media and fans from his @robertjonesLB55 Twitter account for…

Strange, this Buffalo Bills season. A month before the season began, after the Sammy Watkins and Ronald Darby trades, general manager Brandon Beane found himself answering questions about throwing in the towel on 2017. Buffalo fans still sporting argument scars over the 2014-15 Sabres broke out their old debate points for this year's Bills. What we've learned the …

ATLANTA – Sean McDermott laughed, as most of the Bills did when the question was posed to them afterward. What if I told you this was the team's biggest road win since the Super Bowl days?

Grading the Bills RUNNING GAME: C+ It’s not at the level we have come to expect after the last two seasons, but the Bills ran the ball better than they have the last two weeks. LeSean McCoy went for 76 yards on 20 carries, while Mike Tolbert added 31 yards on eight rushes. The long run between the two of them was just 8 yards, though. The 19-play drive that spanned t…

Nobody would dispute whether the Bills have had their share of breaks so far this season, but there comes a time in which their success can't be dismissed based on good fortune alone. Their defense has been terrific. The running game has reawakened. The whole thing is coming together. Dare anyone say Buffalo is for real? If their 3-1 record fails to convince critics …
