Beyond run-game struggles, the Buffalo Bills put on a well-rounded performance in the victory over the Denver Broncos in Week Three. The defense and the passing game were on point. Leslie Frazier's unit has allowed just two touchdowns through three games. Tyrod Taylor was highly efficient as a passer, and even got Kaelin Clay and Nick O'Leary involved down the field.…

The AFC is tightly packed with just one team that is 3-0 (Kansas City) and three teams …

The solid performances by CBS play-by-play man Spero Dedes and analyst Adam Archuleta may have been as surprising to armchair fans at home as the Buffalo Bills' performance in a 26-16 victory Sunday over the Denver Broncos was to fans at New Era Field.

The Bills pulled a minor upset of the Denver Broncos Sunday at New Era Field, logging a 26-16 win that kept them tied for first in the division at 2-1.

And just like several athletes before him, the Bills’ star running back decided he had no choice but to speak through actions and not only words. With the national anthem serving as their backdrop, Bills players formed a…

Lorenzo Alexander made his point.
