Buffalo Bills safety Micah Hyde is on track to make the Pro Bowl for his efforts in the 2017 regular season. While his safety mate Jordan Poyer won't earn a bid to the All-Star game in Orlando, he's enjoyed an underrated, breakout campaign in Buffalo this year.
On the year, Poyer's 92.1 Pro Football Focus coverage grade is second among all safeties in the NFL and actual…
Tre'Davious White had another Defensive Rookie of the Year caliber performance in Buffalo's win over Miami on Sunday.
Against the Dolphins, White received a Pro Football Focus overall grade of 87.7 – in the "elite" range – the sixth-highest among 122 qualifying cornerbacks in Week 15.
He was thrown at eight times and allowed three catches for 58 yards with one interc…
En route to 10,000 career rushing yards, LeSean McCoy was dominant in the first half in the Bills' win over the Dolphins. In the second half, he struggled.
In the first two quarters against Miami, McCoy carried the ball eight times for 46 yards (5.75 yards per carry) with a rushing touchdown. He also had four receptions for 46 yards with a receiving score.
In every game against the Patriots, limiting Rob Gronkowski's production is a priority for the opposing defense.
But just how vital is it?
Probably more vital than you think. Check Tom Brady's splits when throwing and not throwing to Gronkowski this season:

With Shaq Lawson on IR, the Bills have a defensive end rotation featuring Jerry Hughes, Ryan Davis, Eddie Yarbrough and newcomer Cap Capi.
The latter not only held his own but made a crucial play in Buffalo's win over the Dolphins in Week 15.
On 23 snaps against the Dolphins, Capi had a sack – which resulted in a fumble – and one "stop," a stat line that may seem ins…
The Miami Dolphins entered Sunday’s game against the Bills on an amazing run of third-down defense.
Their last two opponents were a combined 1-for-24. That included holding the New England Patriots to 0-for-11 in a victory Monday night.
The Bills were 10th in converting third downs coming into Week 15 at 41.1 percent.
They got off to a good start with a pair of th…
Bills vs. Dolphins: 102 games all-time.
Bills record: 42-59-1 (.417).
Playoffs: Four games, the Buffalo Bills won three and lost one. Their three wins were a 44-34 victory in the divisional round on Jan. 12, 1991, a 29-10 win in the AFC Championship on Jan. 17, 1993, and a 37-22 victory in the wildcard game on Dec. 30, 1995. Their lone lost is their most recent playo…
The Miami Dolphins have been supremely stingy on third down of late, and Armando Salguero tweeted the statistic that quantifies how good they've been in their last two games:
(*According to Pro Football Reference, the Bills have converted 42.1 percent of their third-down attempts, which puts them in 7th in…
After a shaky start to the season, Jay Cutler was tremendous for the Miami Dolphins in their dominant victory over the New England Patriots in Week 14.
He completed 25 of 38 passes for 263 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions.
Let's take a deeper dive on Cutler's year with Miami and play of late.
Here are Cutler's split stats at home and away from the …
Miami Dolphins starting center Mike Pouncey received a "did not practice" label on Thursday, the second straight day he didn't participate in Miami's preparatory session for their Week 15 game against the Bills.
Pouncey is dealing with a hip injury, but he told reporters in Miami on Thursday that part of his time off was planned because the Dolphins played Monday night.…
Tre'Davious White seemingly had a blast on the field Sunday, and he shut out Colts receivers from the stat book.
In the snow, he didn't allow a catch on just one target. Somewhat strangely, one target for zero yards doesn't equate to a 0.0 passer rating. It's 39.6.
Anyway, White's overall PFF grade of 50.7 ranked 62nd out of 98 qualifying cornerbacks in Week 14. Clea…
Because Kelvin Benjamin, Zay Jones, and Andre Holmes are the only Bills wideouts (who've played in a game this season) under contract with Buffalo in 2018, it's far from crazy to think the Bills will address the receiver position relatively early in the 2018 NFL Draft.
Let's take an early look at the top portion of the group of pass-catchers.

Just how good was LeSean McCoy against the Colts in the snow on Sunday?
He earned Pro Football Focus' second-highest grade among all running backs in Week 14. Beyond that, he forced a whopping eight missed tackles. Ironically, Indianapolis runner Frank Gore was the only ball-carrier who forced more missed tackles (nine) on the ground.
McCoy's grade of 93.5 – in PFF's…
Eddie Yarbrough and Ryan Davis have carved out niche roles in the Bills defense and have performed admirably in those roles over the past few games.
Against the Colts, Yarbrough received a run-defense grade of 82.4 – which places him firmly in PFF's "very good" range – the 14th-best grade among 133 edge-rushers in Week 14.
But it wasn't an isolated performance from t…
After LeSean McCoy's monstrous performance in the snow in the Bills win over the Colts, let's examine how he's fared with Buffalo when facing the Dolphins.
Obviously, Miami's defense doesn't consist of the exact same players from last season or two years ago, but it features some of the same important pieces like Nnamdukong Suh, Cameron Wake, Kiko Alonso and Reshad Jone…
