Latest Bills

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. There were no blatant coverage mixups and finger-pointing after long gains all…

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. You'll hear a lot of hardy-har-hars about the Bills being in first place in the AFC East, with the New England Patriots losing Thursday night and Hurricane Irma postponing the Miami Dolphins' opening…

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 seconda…

Allow me to address the fine folks who are only interested in the facts, especially when they conveniently feed their limitless optimism. The Bills are leading the AFC East after beating the Jets, 21-12, Sunday at New Era Field after the Patriots lost their opener and Hurricane Irma wiped out the Dolphins-Bucs game in Tampa. The Bills outgained the Jets, 411-214 and had…

LeSean McCoy demonstrated exactly why he believes he’s the best running back in the NFL on Sunday. He also gave the Buffalo Bills and their fans a panic attack in the fourth quarter of a 21-12 victory over the New York Jets at New Era Field. McCoy checked himself out of the game early in the fourth quarter and was immediately attended to by trainers after he was ta…

I'll dispense with the happy stuff first, just so people won't accuse me of being hopelessly negative. The Bills won the opener of the Sean McDermott era Sunday, playing a solid if at times uninspiring game in a 21-12 win over the Jets at New Era Field. With the Pats losing Thursday and the Dolphins idle due to Hurricane Irma, the Bills are alone in first place in the A…

The Buffalo Bills have ruled out two players for the season opener Sunday against the New York Jets. Defensive tackle Jerel Worthy won't play because of a concussion, while rookie linebacker Tanner Vallejo is out with a knee injury.

It's finally here. Opening day in Buffalo is special – no matter what the record projections for the Bills say. There's nothing quite like walking through the parking lots at New Era Field and seeing friends and family enjoying each other's company. The good times should continue after kickoff against the New York Jets, who project to be one of the worst teams in …

The Bills didn’t have any quarterback issues Thursday against the Detroit Lions with rookie Nathan Peterman starting the game 6-for-6 and leading two scoring drives in their 27-17 preseason finale win at New Era Field. But it’s still unclear when starter Tyrod Taylor will be cleared from the concussion protocol. With that said, Bills General Manager Brandon Beane ap…

A year ago, Keith Wenning lost his status as the Cincinnati Bengals' third-string quarterback. The guy who surpassed him Aug. 28, 2016, in Jacksonville? University at Buffalo grad Joe Licata took over after starter Andy Dalton and backup A.J. McCarron. Things didn't work out for Licata that night. A solid performance might've given Cincy reason to add him to the prac…

If the Buffalo Bills do have to turn to Nathan Peterman as the starter for their Sept. 10 season-opener against the New York Jets -- or at any point thereafter -- the rookie quarterback did his best Thursday night to make the case their offense would be in capable hands. In his first and only start of the preseason, Peterman was mostly impressive in helping the Bills to…

Tyrod Taylor is in the NFL's concussion protocol, having slammed the back of his head off the M&T Bank Stadium turf Saturday night. That happened eight plays into the Buffalo Bills' preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens. We don't yet know when he'll be back, let alone if he's a sure thing for the regular-season opener in two weeks. Taylor's injury gave rookie N…

BALTIMORE – To put it kindly, the Buffalo Bills’ trip to Baltimore could have gone better. Before Saturday night’s game against the Ravens even started, the team announced defensive tackle Marcell Dareus had been sent home for a violation of team rules. That was only the start of the bad news for the Bills, though, in a game they went on to lose, 13-9. Start…
