If a franchise quarterback magically appeared on the Buffalo Bills’ roster tomorrow – don’t hold your breath – there is little doubt the next-biggest team need is a big man for the middle of the defense. Or better yet, big men. The trade that sent Marcell Dareus to the Jacksonville Jaguars midway through the 2017 season opened one hole in the starting lineup, and Kyl…

The drought is dead. The Buffalo Bills finally ended a 17-year postseason dry spell, leading to mass celebrations, six-figure charitable donations and hope that, finally, the team is on the right path under the leadership of General Manager Brandon Beane and coach Sean McDermott. Before attention turns squarely to planning for 2018, though, here is one final look bac…

The Buffalo Bills will play meaningful football for the entire 2017 season. Their 24-16 victory Sunday over the Miami Dolphins guaranteed that the Bills will be alive in the AFC playoff race through the final game of the year – when they will visit those same Dolphins in South Florida. Before that looms a trip to New England for the biggest game in ... well, a really lo…

My takeaways from the Bills’ had-to-have-it win over the Dolphins on Sunday at New Era Field. 1. Exhale, Bills fans. LeSean McCoy is OK. On the play in which he topped a huge milestone of 10,000 career rushing yards, McCoy stayed down hurt. After coming out of the lineup, he missed just one play. McCoy capped off an excellent first half with a 16-yard touchdown catch to…

One of Sean McDermott’s stated goals this season is to build a football team that peaks in November and December. The Buffalo Bills’ rookie head coach has failed so far in that regard. After opening with a 3-1 record in the first quarter of the season and sitting at 5-3 at the midway point, the Bills have dropped to 6-6 at the quarter pole. A three-game losing streak ca…

Rob Gronkowski put on a clinic Sunday at New Era Field, up until his illegal hit on Bills cornerback Tre'Davious White near the end of the game. No matter how the Bills tried to defend him, the New England tight end proved he was too good to be stopped. Here's breakdown of Gronkowski's nine-catch, 147-yard day: X Gronk beat the blitz three times for 61 yards. One …

At least the Chiefs lost. If you’re looking for a positive to come out of Sunday for the Buffalo Bills, that’s about the only thing I can find to offer you. The 23-3 loss to the New England Patriots at New Era Field felt like Exhibit No. 1,000 in the never-ending dominance between the two teams. It feels like Buffalo is as far away as ever from offering any type of chal…

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. The defense of Sean McDermott and Leslie Frazier relies on a dominant front four. McDermott benefitted in Carolina from the beefy defensive tackle combination of Kawann Short and Star Lotulelei, both high-end, …

It would have been easy for the Buffalo Bills to make an example out of Adolphus Washington. The second-year defensive tackle was arrested in his home state of Ohio back in July on a misdemeanor charge of improperly carrying a concealed firearm. With a new coaching staff that placed a big emphasis on character under Sean McDermott, the Bills could have simply cut Washin…

Below are the Buffalo Bills' snap counts for the 2017 season, with some observations from the Week 9 loss to the New York Jets. • With wide receiver Zay Jones hobbled by a knee injury that limited him to 40 snaps, veteran Jordan Matthews was the workhorse at the position, taking 71 of 75 snaps. • LeSean McCoy played 55 snaps, but got just 12 touches as the Bills fell…

Below are the Buffalo Bills' snap counts for the 2017 season, with some observations from the Week Eight win over the Raiders. • The coaches mean it when they say they're going to stick by rookie receiver Zay Jones. He played the most snaps of any wide receiver, with Jordan Matthews next. Deonte Thompson got two more snaps than Andre Holmes. That looks like it will be t…

The timing isn't good for the Buffalo Bills to meet the Oakland Raiders. Quarterback Derek Carr and Co. are coming off a big win in Week Seven, 31-30 over Kansas City, and come in with extra rest having played on Thursday Night Football. 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…

The Buffalo Bills were called for six accepted penalties against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week Five, and half of them were very impactful. As a reminder, throughout the season, we're reviewing all of the team's penalties from the previous game. Each penalty will be labeled based on its impact: Minimal Moderate Significant Let's examine all of the Bills' p…

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 Williams …

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. A strong rotation along the defensive line has allowed the team to replace Marcell Dareus in Week Three and Shaq Lawson on Sunday without a significant drop in performance. As they always do, however, injuries have start…
