Grading the Bills RUNNING GAME: A It’s Week One, and I’m running out of ways to describe just how good LeSean McCoy is. The Bills’ best offensive player picked right up where he left off in 2016, gaining 110 yards on 22 carries. He’s great is the easiest way to say it.

Sean McDermott had just won his opening game as an NFL head coach. The Bills had defeated the hapless Jets on Sunday, 21-12.

Thank Terry and Kim (Pegula) for giving us the resources that they giv…

Micah Hyde had but one piece of advice for Jordan Poyer on Sunday: Hit the weights. The Buffalo Bills’ safety jokingly gave his partner in the secondary a hard time after almost having an interception wrestled away from him during a 21-12 season-opening victory over the New York Jets at New Era Field. “He has to get in the weight room because the guy took it from him…

Jordan Matthews found himself getting anxious. The Buffalo Bills' No. 1 receiver sat out the entire preseason with a chip fracture in his sternum. Then the first half of Sunday's season opener against the New York Jets came and went at New Era Field with Matthews making just one catch for 14 yards. "It definitely took me a while just to be able to get back into it," …

It was a good debut for the new Buffalo Bills' coaching staff in Sunday's 21-12 win over the New York Jets. The new defensive scheme of head coach Sean McDermott and coordinator Leslie Frazier held the Jets to 38 yards rushing. The Bills' new defensive secondary played fundamentally sound.

The Buffalo Bills went through the last of their September calisthenics Sunday, muscling their way to a 21-12 victory in their scrimmage with the Division II New York Jets.

LeSean McCoy isn’t an imposing presence in person, but the 5-11, 210-pound running back carries the weight of an entire offense on his shoulders with ease. His shiftiness, his field vision, his explosiveness – all of it make him an absolute treat to watch for a newcomer to the Buffalo area and the Bills as a whole. The way he slices through traffic, carving up secondaries…

With the Pats losing Thursday and the Dolphins idle due to Hurricane Irma, the Bills are alone in first place in the A…
