CARSON, Calif. – Nathan Peterman said after Sunday’s debacle that his coach tells him teams don’t lose, they learn. After the last three weeks, the Bills should be ready for Mensa, then, because they’ve been doing a whole lot of learning. Peterman’s first NFL start was nothing short of a disaster, as he threw one, two, three, four, five interceptions in the…

CARSON, Calif. – The last thing the Buffalo Bills need on offense right now is a major injury. Unfortunately, that might be exactly what they got against the Los Angeles Chargers in a brutal showing Sunday. No. 1 wideout Kelvin Benjamin suffered a right knee injury on the fourth play from scrimmage during the Bills’ 54-24 loss at StubHub Center. Coach Sean McDerm…

Grading the Bills RUNNING GAME: B LeSean McCoy put up some ridiculous numbers – 114 yards rushing on just 13 carries. His 37-yard run followed by a 27-yard touchdown in the first quarter showcased his abilities. If there was a silver lining, I guess that would be it. Tyrod Taylor scrambled for 38 yards to help the final numbers look good. Travaris Cadet showed a pu…

The Bills have allowed 135 points in their three consecutive losses, the most in a three-game stretch in franchise history. That includes a 34-21 loss to the Jets, a 47-10 loss to the Saints and a 54-24 loss to the Chargers. The Bills gave up at least 47 points for the first time in back-to-back games. The combined 101 points in the last two weeks is two shy of th…

CARSON, Calif. – Well, that was something, wasn’t it? What does rock bottom look like, exactly? Here are my 10 observations from the Bills’ unbelievable, 54-24 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers. 1. The Nathan Peterman Era could not have gotten off to a worse start. The rookie quarterback was intercepted four times – FOUR – in the first 17 minutes of the game. T…

CARSON, Calif. – The Buffalo Bills will get one receiver back and be without another Sunday against the Los Angeles Chargers. Veteran Jordan Matthews, who was questionable for the game with a knee injury, leads the team's list of inactive players. Rookie Zay Jones will start after missing a Week 10 loss to New Orleans with an ankle injury. Also inactive for the Bil…

There was a lot of conversation on ESPN NFL Sunday Countdown about the Bills' decision to bench Tyrod Taylor in favor of rookie Nathan Peterman in advance of Sunday's game at the Los Angeles Chargers. Former Bills coach Rex Ryan was among those who weighed in and said he did not understand why the switch was made, and why now. https://twitter.com/espn/status/93226988…

Grading the Bills RUNNING GAME: F Maybe this is harsh, but now is no time to be lenient. LeSean McCoy got off to a good start, with a 36-yard gain on the first possession, but managed just 13 yards on his other seven carries. Mike Tolbert rushed twice for minus-2 yards. It’s at the point where we need to ask why he’s on the roster. Any carry by someone other than…

It looked like Kelvin Benjamin was going to have himself a day. The Buffalo Bills’ new receiver caught a 9-yard pass on the second play from scrimmage Sunday against the New Orleans Saints. Twice more on the opening drive, Benjamin was targeted by quarterback Tyrod Taylor, although those passes fell incomplete. Things changed dramatically from that point, though, f…

The few fans who stuck it out to the bitter end Sunday inside New Era Field came alive with 4:53 remaining in what was a 47-10 Bills' loss to the New Orleans Saints. It was at that point that starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor was replaced by rookie backup Nathan Peterman, drawing the heartiest cheers of a lost afternoon. The cliche goes that the backup quarterback is…

Joe Laurendi feels your pain, Bills fans, because he is one of you. Laurendi felt so frustrated during Sunday's loss to the New Orleans Saints that he posted a video on Twitter to express his thoughts that he labeled an "Emergency State of the Union." A Buffalo native, Laurendi is a senior majoring in journalism at DePaul in Chicago. And, well, he's not happy. …

Bills

1. Well, that was embarrassing. The Bills were outclassed in every possible fashion Sunday at New Era Field, losing 47-10 to the New Orleans Saints. Blame the offense if you want. Or blame the defense. You really can't go wrong. Heck, even punter Colton Schmidt had a bad game. Going against a legitimate opponent at home, the Bills didn't come close to being up for the chal…

The Buffalo Bills will be without starting cornerback E.J. Gaines for a third straight game Sunday. Gaines, who was listed as questionable, is among the Bills' inactives. That means Shareece Wright will start in his place against Drew Brees and Co. Also inactive for the Bills are: WR Zay Jones (ankle), LT Cordy Glenn (ankle/foot), RB Travaris Cadet, OT Conor McDermot…
