Bills kicker Stephen Hauschka's NFL record streak of field goals from 50 yards or more ended Sunday in the second quarter against the Kansas City Chiefs. Hauschka, in his first season with the Bills, missed from 52 yards, snapping a run of 13 consecutive made from long distance that dated back to December 2014. He bounced back immediately by making a 56-yarder to giv…

The Bills are right back where they started with Tyrod Taylor. After the failed Nathan Peterman experiment, Sean McDermott is still searching for answers at quarterback, "wondering if Taylor can rise up and lead the Bills to victory in a crucial road game, something he's done far too infrequently during his two and a half years as the starter," Jerry Sullivan writes in his…

Chiefs coach Andy Reid met with the media in Kansas City on Friday. Here is what he said: OPENING STATEMENT: “As far as the injuries go, the guys, and they’ll be listed as out, are Dee Ford and Terrance Smith. Everybody will be up and ready to go. We look forward to the challenge of playing Buffalo. We know they’re a good football team. Our guys had a good week of pract…

Bills coach Sean McDermott announced Wednesday that Tyrod Taylor would return as the team's quarterback after rookie Nathan Peterman threw five interceptions last week in his first career start. Taylor called it an "interesting set of days" and seemed hurt by the benching, but maintained that this week will just be business as usual. Thankful: Jerry Sullivan, ever in…

Quarterback Tyrod Taylor Q: What’s up QB1? A: Not much. Q: Obviously you’re happy about the decision, but has this week kind of just been a blur for you? Has it been a crazy week for you? A: It’s been an interesting set of days but it’s the National Football League. You’ve got to be prepared for anything and focus-wise, you can’t let things break your focus. Like…

For the record

At his Wednesday press conference, Bills coach Sean McDermott said that wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin (knee) is not practicing today. He remains day-to-day. "We'll see," he said of whether Benjamin will play Sunday at the Kansas City Chiefs. Also not practicing: guard John Miller (ankle) and offensive tackles Cordy Glenn (foot, ankle) and Dion Dawkins (illness). L…

Bills rookie quarterback Nathan Peterman legitimately had one of the worst games in NFL history Sunday, throwing five interceptions in the first half before being relieved by Tyrod Taylor. But Monday, coach Sean McDermott said he wasn't ready to announce a starter for this week's game in Kansas City. “Still evaluating right now,” McDermott said, possibly to make game pr…

Offensive Coordinator Rick Dennison Q: Coach, what went into the decision for you to go upstairs yesterday, as opposed to being on the field? A: Just [wanted] to try a different perspective. When we were watching film the previous game on Monday, we talked as a staff. Both David [Culley] and Kelly [Skipper] wanted to be on the field to work with those [guys]. Thought…

How could the Bills do worse than their 47-10 defeat last week to the Saints? How about following it with another 30-point loss where the rookie quarterback threw five interceptions and the team nearly set the franchise record for points allowed? The Bills got steamrolled by the Chargers Sunday in Los Angeles, 54-24, and fell to 5-5 overall. Peterman has debut for th…

Bills kicker Stephen Hauschka made a 50-yard field goal in the third quarter Sunday to set the NFL record for consecutive field goals of 50 yards or more with 13. He also tied the Bills team record for most field goals of 50 yards or more in a season with six. Dan Carpenter had six in 2014. https://twitter.com/BuffaloBillsPR/status/932386005281251329

Did Sean McDermott make a quarterback change to ignite the Bills' offense or to deflect blame from his struggling defense? "Whatever his motives, McDermott is facing the biggest crisis of a turbulent first season as a head coach," Jerry Sullivan writes in his Sunday column. "It would have been so regardless. But he's raised the stakes by handing the offense to Nathan Peter…

The Bills, as you know, made a quarterback change this week, despite owning a winning record. But instead of replacing Tyrod Taylor, some are wondering why the Bills didn't replace offensive coordinator Rick Dennison. That question came up in Jay Skurski's weekly Bills mailbag. "Dennison’s future is absolutely fair to question," Skurski wrote. Click the link to see his …
