You have to be worried about the talent level of the Buffalo Bills' front seven in the wake of Sunday's 47-10 shellacking at the hands of the New Orleans Saints.

It would have been easy for the Buffalo Bills to make an example out of Adolphus Washington.

With a new coaching staff that placed a big emphasis on character under Sean McDermott, the Bills could have simply cut Washi…

Carr threw for more than 400 yards in the win over the Chiefs, as Oakland's high-powered offense started to find itself. The Raiders w…

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.

The Buffalo Bills have had it easy when it comes to injuries so far in 2017. The team has withstood the two-game absence of left tackle Cordy Glenn.

As they always do, however, injuries have start…

"Slow your roll," some readers said. "Way too early," others claimed. "Give 'em time, for cryin' outs," I heard. My takeaway from the Buffalo Bills' preseason opener last week was their disconcerting penalty total. They committed 13 penalties. The Minnesota Vikings accepted 10 of them for 106 yards. All those flags irked Bills coach Sean McDermott, but many fan…

You could say Sunday's game meant nothing, and, in the grand scheme, that's true. The Buffalo Bills and New York Jets had been eliminated from postseason scenarios. Two scuzzy clubs mopping up the year. Big whoop. But the game did mean something. The game was a chance to give dispirited Bills fans a glimpse toward 2017, to provide hope, to let them exhale with some r…
