Big Play Breakdown: Fake Jet Sweep Power-Shovel Option This 15-yard touchdown against Philadelphia in Week 2 is a good example of how Kansas City coach Andy Reid deploys his two game-breaking offensive weapons, tight end Travis Kelce (87) and receiver Tyreek Hill (10).

The game looked all but over, since the Bills…

Coach Sean McDermott hasn't announced a starting quarterback yet, and each choice – Tyrod Taylor or Nathan Peterman – means much more than simply who will take the field this week. Are the Bills giving up on their playoff chances? Are they all-in for the future? Are they tanking? Bills fans – and players – have to be…

Yet another poor defensive outing for the Bills in which Tre'Davious White played a fine game. Buffalo's defense allowed 40 points (not counting the two Chargers touchdowns on turnovers), but the rookie cornerback fared well carrying out his responsibilities.

The late great Bills announcer Van Miller coined the iconic phrase "fandemonium" to describe the raucous, rabid atmosphere at Rich Stadium/the Ralph/New Era Field. And while earlier this season it was the perfect description for the upstart 2017 Bills, by Thanksgiving week there is no joy in Mudville anymore. Buffalo fans have left fandemonium and entered fandelirium…
