Taylor is coming off a lackluster performance in the passing game against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday. He …

The insinuation is that a player who carries that label isn’t good enough to contribute offensively or defensively. The Buffalo Bills had someone last year who showed it’s possible to break out of that mold. They just might have another one do it this year, too. Linebac…

Peppered by questions about Marcell Dareus’ limited playing time against the Jets, Bills head coach Sean McDermott reiterated his philosophy on what it takes to win games. “Our system is our system, just in terms of rotating players.
