By Armando Salguero MIAMI – Chris Foerster has resigned his position from the Miami Dolphins hours after a video surfaced showing the team’s offensive line coach snorting a white powdery substance off what is believed to be his desk at the team’s training facility. Foerster, in his 25th NFL season, agreed Monday morning to move on from his job rather than be fi…

With the Buffalo Bills a surprising 3-1 going into Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals, you might have expected the TV rating to hit a season-high. It didn't happen. Cincinnati's 20-16 victory had a 36.0 rating on WIVB-TV (Channel 4), the local CBS affiliate. That is a strong rating but about 2 percent lower than the ratings for the Bills upsets the previ…

The Buffalo Bills missed a golden opportunity Sunday. Make that several of them. The defense and special teams tried and tried again to keep the Bills in the game against the Cincinnati Bengals, but an inept offense couldn’t cash in. The result was a disappointing 20-16 loss that dropped the Bills to 3-2. That’s still good for a share of the AFC East lead, but 4-…

The Bills' defense logged three turnovers Sunday. You're supposed to win with that. In fact, since 2000, teams with three or more takeaways have enjoyed a .795 winning percentage. But the Bills were on the wrong end of a 20-16 decision to the Bengals thanks to an anemic and depleted offense. "At the end of the day, with those three turnovers, we've got to find a way to …

Philadelphia, Green Bay and Carolina all were winners in significant games on Sunday to go 4-1 but injuries to two of the National Football League’s biggest names made bigger news. New York Giants star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. suffered a broken left ankle in his team’s fifth straight loss, and Houston Texans defensive star J.J. Watt left his team’s game against Ka…

CINCINNATI – Tyrod Taylor neatly summarized the Buffalo Bills’ offensive performance Sunday. “The offense didn’t play the way we needed to win against a very good defense,” Taylor said after a 20-16 loss at soggy Paul Brown Stadium. “I’ll take full responsibility for that.” Taylor’s numbers weren’t pretty – 20 of 37 for 166 yards, one touchdown …

CINCINNATI – There is a short list of players the Buffalo Bills can least afford to lose this season, and tight end Charles Clay is near the top. Unfortunately for the Bills, that’s what happened Sunday in a 20-16 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals at Paul Brown Stadium. Clay suffered a left knee injury in the second quarter when he was hit by Bengals safety Shawn Willi…

CINCINNATI – Observations from what was a dismal – to put it kindly – performance from the Buffalo Bills' offense Sunday. 1. For as good as the Bills’ win in Atlanta was in Week Four, this is equally as bad. The reality is, a 3-2 record at the bye week would have been better if the wins came against the Jets, Broncos and Bengals, because that would have given th…

CINCINNATI – The Buffalo Bills are shaking up their offensive line. Guard John Miller, who has started the first four games of the year, in a healthy inactive against the Bengals. He will be replaced in the lineup by veteran Vlad Ducasse. Rookie Dion Dawkins will start at left tackle even though veteran Cordy Glenn is active. Also inactive for the Bills are offensi…

Wide receiver Philly Brown's return to the Bills was short-lived. Brown, who was signed Monday following the injury to Jordan Matthews, was released Saturday. Brown, signed as a free agent in the offseason, spent all of training camp and the preseason with the Bills before his release as they trimmed their roster to 53. Without Brown, the Bills will have four wide…

Preston Brown watched this offseason as, one by one, the Buffalo Bills said goodbye to his veteran teammates. Stephon Gilmore? Off to New England. Aaron Williams and Corey Graham? Cut. Robert Woods? Back home to L.A. Sammy Watkins and Ronald Darby? Sent on their way in trades. "I mean we traded away some good players, some good players signed other places, but I thin…
