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…

BILLS COACH SEAN McDERMOTT On why Kelvin Benjamin wasn’t active… He really only had a short amount of time to get up to speed. The guys that did play put in time during the week and so we wanted to do things the right way as far as that goes. On if this was just one of those games… Yeah, you’re right. This is uncharacteristic of this team to date, the way we’ve…

Michael Irvin, onetime Buffalo Bills nemesis and current NFL Network analyst, wanted to know whether Buffalo was the real deal after the team got off to a 5-2 start. After the Bills’ dismal performance in Thursday night’s loss against the New York Jets, Irvin seems to have gotten his answer, based on his postgame analysis. “Buffalo was not [ready to play],” said Irvi…

Grading the Bills RUNNING GAME: F LeSean McCoy usually shines in prime time. Not Thursday, though. McCoy was largely bottled up, gaining just 25 yards on 12 carries. That was bad, but even worse was the effort from Mike Tolbert. He gained just 4 yards on three carries. That’s not going to make defenses respect the run game when McCoy is out. Taylor had just one carry…

That’s a version of the Buffalo Bills we haven’t seen this year – and fans surely don’t want to see again. The Bills were undisciplined, unprepared and flat-out manhandled in every conceivable fashion by a Jets team that is less talented. The result was a…

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – Kelvin Benjamin's debut with the Buffalo Bills will have to wait. The wide receiver, acquired Tuesday in a trade with the Carolina Panthers, went through warmups with the Bills prior to Thursday night's game against the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium, but was declared inactive a short time later. "He only had a small amount of time to get up…

NEWARK, N.J. – John Miller thought he was coming off his best game of the season. Sure, the Buffalo Bills guard knew his false start in the red zone during a Week Four win against the Atlanta Falcons was a bad penalty, but other than that he thought he played well. So when the Bills made a change in Week Five, starting veteran Vlad Ducasse at right guard, Miller said…

Bills

NEWARK, N.J. – The Bills hit prime time Thursday night looking to vault to the top of the AFC East. A victory over the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium would get the Bills to 6-2 for the first time since the last Super Bowl season and into a tie with the New England Patriots. The Bills would actually be ahead of New England based on a better division record, with a pair…

It looked like it was going to be a long afternoon for Trae Elston. The Buffalo Bills’ safety found himself in coverage on back-to-back, 20-yard gains on the Oakland Raiders’ first drive Sunday. There was cause for concern about the injuries in the Buffalo secondary, and Elston’s tough start only heightened those. Those concerns, however, were quickly put to rest. El…

Grading the Bills RUNNING GAME: A The final numbers for LeSean McCoy look great – 27 carries for 151 yards and a touchdown. Although it didn’t feel like it, the 27 attempts were his most as a member of the Bills. Credit offensive coordinator Rick Dennison for sticking with the run after the Bills managed just 42 yards on 11 carries in the first half. Backup Mike Tolb…

Preston Brown sees firsthand just how much work rookie linebacker Matt Milano puts in. "We're roommates on the road, so I see him in his playbook all night," Brown said Sunday after the Buffalo Bills' 34-14 win over the Oakland Raiders at New Era Field. Milano played a big part in the win, returning a fumble 40 yards for a touchdown in the second quarter to put the B…
