Bills

The Buffalo Bills’ run defense was a strength just two weeks ago. Entering the team’s Week 9 game against the New York Jets on Thursday Night Football, the team had given up just 80.1 yards per game, which ranked third in the NFL. Since then? “We’ve really fallen off a cliff,” defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier said Monday. Indeed they have. The Bills’ inabil…

Below are the Buffalo Bills' snap counts for the 2017 season, with some observations from the Week 10 loss to the New Orleans Saints. • It didn't take wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin long to get up to speed on the Bills' offense. He led his position group with 41 snaps. Deonte Thompson getting more snaps than Jordan Matthews (39 to 36) was interesting, while Andre Holmes …

There is now plenty of room on the Buffalo Bills’ bandwagon. Spots that filled up after the Bills raced out to a 5-2 start are once again available as fans filed out of New Era Field early on Sunday with their team looking downright abysmal for the second game in a row. A 47-10 loss to the New Orleans Saints dropped the Bills to 5-4. They are still holding onto the s…

Grading the Bills RUNNING GAME: F Maybe this is harsh, but now is no time to be lenient. LeSean McCoy got off to a good start, with a 36-yard gain on the first possession, but managed just 13 yards on his other seven carries. Mike Tolbert rushed twice for minus-2 yards. It’s at the point where we need to ask why he’s on the roster. Any carry by someone other than McC…

Rams wide receiver Robert Woods had a big day Sunday. The former Bill posted a career-high 171 yards receiving and a pair of touchdowns, including this 94-yarder, against the Texans. The play was the longest from scrimmage in the Rams franchise since Bucky Pope caught a 95-yard TD pass from Bill Munson in Week 14 in 1964, according to the NFL. https://twitter.com/NFL…

It looked like Kelvin Benjamin was going to have himself a day. The Buffalo Bills’ new receiver caught a 9-yard pass on the second play from scrimmage Sunday against the New Orleans Saints. Twice more on the opening drive, Benjamin was targeted by quarterback Tyrod Taylor, although those passes fell incomplete. Things changed dramatically from that point, though, for…

The few fans who stuck it out to the bitter end Sunday inside New Era Field came alive with 4:53 remaining in what was a 47-10 Bills' loss to the New Orleans Saints. It was at that point that starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor was replaced by rookie backup Nathan Peterman, drawing the heartiest cheers of a lost afternoon. The cliche goes that the backup quarterback is…

Bills

After another humbling loss, Bills coach Sean McDermott addressed the media Sunday and sounded much like he did after last week's loss to the New York Jets. The Bills lost for the first time at home this season, falling 47-10 to the New Orleans Saints. Here are some takeaways from McDermott: On the quarterback situation: "Tyrod is our starter. ... I'm just going to e…

On a dreary, depressing day at New Era Field, Bills fans were exposed to some excitement late in the fourth quarter. Late in the Bills' 47-10 loss to the New Orleans Saints, there was a buzz in the crowd, and players started pointing at something on the field, prompting a different kind of yell heard around the stadium: "Streaker!" A male fan wearing nothing but a…

1. Well, that was embarrassing. The Bills were outclassed in every possible fashion Sunday at New Era Field, losing 47-10 to the New Orleans Saints. Blame the offense if you want. Or blame the defense. You really can't go wrong. Heck, even punter Colton Schmidt had a bad game. Going against a legitimate opponent at home, the Bills didn't come close to being up for the chal…

The Buffalo Bills will be without starting cornerback E.J. Gaines for a third straight game Sunday. Gaines, who was listed as questionable, is among the Bills' inactives. That means Shareece Wright will start in his place against Drew Brees and Co. Also inactive for the Bills are: WR Zay Jones (ankle), LT Cordy Glenn (ankle/foot), RB Travaris Cadet, OT Conor McDermot…

Bill Munson has done the math, and the numbers are staggering. Over a career with the Buffalo Bills that spanned five decades, Munson has – by his calculations – seen 889 games in person, driven more than a million miles back and forth from his home in East Amherst to the team’s Orchard Park headquarters and worked with 1,122 players and 227 coaches. “I’m a big stats…
