Former NFL official Jim Daopoulos was surprised as anyone when he saw Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct in the Buffalo Bills’ 26-16 victory Sunday. Daopoulos, who spent 11 years as an on-field official and 12 as a supervisor and now works for ESPN, told The News on Monday that the call was an “overreaction.” Miller was pen…

If the season ended today, the Buffalo Bills would not only make the playoffs, they'd earn a bye into the divisional round. Yes, that's fairly ridiculous to think about after three weeks, but Buffalo's 26-16 win over the Denver Broncos did return the Bills to the top of the AFC East. The AFC is tightly packed with just one team that is 3-0 (Kansas City) and three teams …

Lorenzo Alexander made his point. The Buffalo Bills’ linebacker was one of at least a dozen members of the team to take a knee during the national anthem, a form of silent protest that was prevalent around the NFL on Sunday following incendiary comments made by President Trump over the weekend. “It was in response to our president’s comments, calling people who…

Former Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan appeared on the morning show “Sunday NFL Countdown" today, calling President Donald Trump's recent comments about the NFL "appalling." In April 2016, Ryan introduced Trump at a campaign rally in Buffalo and expressed his support for the then-candidate. Ryan said on Sunday: “Everyone’s always been united. Yeah, the views are…

We listened to one another. We believe it's the best way to work through any issue we are facing -- on and off the field. "President Trump’s remarks were divisive and disrespectful t…

Sean McDermott wouldn’t change a thing. He concedes he wasn’t the best athlete or the best safety to come through William and Mary, but the Bills head coach has no regrets about playing the game he loves — not even the wake of the latest news surrounding chronic traumatic encephalopathy and the NFL. It was reported Thursday that Boston University researchers found …

Sweat begins to collect on Lorenzo Alexander’s shaved head. The only sounds in the spacious room come from his deliberate, deep breaths and the soothing encouragement of his female instructor. The only source of light filters through the frosted double glass doors in the back, revealing a Pilates reformer machine and neatly arranged exercise balls, barres, mats. F…

A “trap game?” On the road in Week Two, against a 1-1 team? Vance Joseph finds the very idea ridiculous. “It’s the NFL. It’s a hard league, so to say it’s a ‘trap game’ in this league, that’s disrespectful to your opponent,” the Denver Broncos’ coach said Thursday. “I don’t think it exists in this league.” So, no, don’t expect the 2-0…

It was around his third or fourth season with the Buffalo Bills that Andre Reed started keeping a notebook. Entries were limited to one item: every catch that Reed felt he should have made, but didn’t. “It wasn’t that I was beating a dead horse,” the greatest receiver in team history said this week. “It was just the mindset that I needed. If it's on your fi…

Each week, I'll take my favorite question (please, no campaigning) from the Bills Mailbag and devote a separate post to it. Want yours answered? Every Wednesday morning, I'll put out the call for questions, so submit it then. This week's question comes from Frank Propis, who asks on Twitter: How much longer does Cordy Glenn last with his injury troubles and relative lac…

In the face of calls for a quarterback change, LeSean McCoy defended the starter he currently has. The Bills running back said Wednesday that he was unaware of the Tyrod Taylor chatter and the mounting frustrations of fans who want to see a different quarterback under center (hello, Nathan Peterman!). But in the aftermath of their 9-3 loss in Carolina, and growing concern…

As Sean McDermott sees it, the Bills don’t need different wide receivers. They just need their current ones to do a better job of doing their job. Asked Wednesday morning if he has enough speed at the position, the Bills head coach gave the expected head-coaching answer. “I do feel we have enough speed in the receiving corps. I do,” McDermott said, three days after…

The Buffalo Bills Wednesday re-signed defensive tackle Deandre Coleman and safety Robert Blanton. They filled the spots on the 53-man roster vacated by Tuesday's cuts of safety Trae Elston and linebacker Jelani Jenkins. The Philadelphia Eagles, who have a habit of acquiring former Bills defensive backs, promptly picked up Elston off waivers. The Bills released the 6-…
