The Bills were hosting the New York Jets in War Memorial Stadium, and on a 40-degree day, the Buffalo offense was quite chilled. The Jets had a 24-10 lead over the Bills in the third quarter, and it appeared the Bills' unbeaten start to the season at that po…

The Bills lost cornerback E.J. Gaines to a hamstring injury in Sunday's game and safety Jordan Poyer hurt his knee on the final play.

The Bills coach finished discussing the end of first half sequence, his thoughts on the Raider…

The Buffalo Bills now sit at 4-2 after their 30-27 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Defensively, this was in many ways their worst game of the season, as it was the first game of the season in which they allowed more than 20 points and their first with over 400 yards total offense, but their defense continues to generate turnovers — three, for the third straight ga…

The Buffalo Bills added some depth to their secondary Monday, claiming cornerback Tony McRae off waivers from the Baltimore Ravens. McRae, 24, has spent the past five games on the Ravens' active roster after being promoted from the practice squad in Week Two.

Bills insider Chris Brown joined John Murphy and Donald Jones on WGR-550 AM on Monday. Brown lamented the Yankees' loss in the playoffs, but the true focus was the play of the Bills — and the play of Tyrod Taylor, coming back with less than 3 minutes left in the game to tie and later win the game. Brown also talked about the best takeaways from the victory, answered l…

The Bills needed Nick O'Leary and Logan Thomas to step up in the absence of Charles Clay, and the two tight ends certainly did that against the Buccaneers. In the first five games of the season, Clay was targeted 27 times and made 20 receptions for 258 yards with two touchdowns. He was Buffalo's most reliable and productive pass-catching option for the first month of th…

Matt Milano built on a respectable debut as a starter against the Cincinnati Bengals with an excellent game against the Buccaneers in the Bills' win Sunday. He was targeted three times and allowed two receptions for just nine yards. His interception came on a play in which he stayed in the pocket of tight end Cameron Brate down the seam, turned at the right time, and re…

Column as I see 'em, Week Seven: I'm not sure what's more commonplace among NFL media — assuming that the Patriots are heading into decline, or conceding that, once again, reports of New England's demise appear to have been premature. A few weeks ago, when the Pats fell to 2-2 after losing at home to the Panthers, people were handing the AFC title to the Chiefs and…

Never mind that they've been the favorite in two of their six games. The Buffalo Bills are all in on embracing the role of underdog in 2017. Coach Sean McDermott was asked Monday how that can be for a team that is a half game out of the division lead and currently in a playoff position.
