JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Sunday's playoff game was there to be won, but the Buffalo Bills demonstrated they're not quite ready to challenge for anything more than our hearts just yet. Rookie head coach Sean McDermott and first-year General Manager Brandon Beane made progress in establishing a new Bills era. Now we get to watch them try to turn a plucky club into a true cont…

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The belief from the beginning was that the Buffalo Bills were looking toward 2018 and beyond. All the trades, the unloaded salaries and the accumulation of draft choices signaled an organization building for the future. That the Bills reached the postseason was a bonus, a beautiful fluke that flowed from Cincinnati quarterback Andy Dalton's right…

The giving from Buffalo Bills fans continues to the Andy & Jordan Dalton Foundation. As of 3 p.m. Thursday, nearly 14,000 donors have given $307,000, according to a spokesman. Bills fans have embraced Dalton after the Bengals' last-minute win over the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday helped the Bills get into the playoffs and end the franchise's 17-year playoff drought…

Tyler Boyd deserves some love, too. Boyd is the Bengals wide receiver who caught the game-winning touchdown pass from Andy Dalton that sent the Bills to the playoffs. Given the widespread support that Dalton's foundation has received from Bills fans – in excess of $200,000 since Sunday night – Boyd took to Twitter to let Bills fans know about a cause close to his hea…

In addition, the Baltimore Ravens had to lose. If not that, then the Los Angeles Chargers and the Tennessee Titans had to…

Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis Opening comments “The Bills are playing really good football. Offensively, they’ve been impressive. They’ve really done a great job of not turning the football over. They’ve been very productive on third downs, which is key. They’ve converted 40 percent of their third downs. That’s what stands out. Obviously (Bills QB) Tyrod Taylor is do…

A year ago, Keith Wenning lost his status as the Cincinnati Bengals' third-string quarterback. The guy who surpassed him Aug. 28, 2016, in Jacksonville? University at Buffalo grad Joe Licata took over after starter Andy Dalton and backup A.J. McCarron. Things didn't work out for Licata that night. A solid performance might've given Cincy reason to add him to the prac…

While it must bolster Jim Kelly's ego to know he has been irreplaceable for 20 years, he'd rather watch another quarterback take his Buffalo Bills back to the playoffs. Snow falling on a frigid January afternoon, a miserable opponent and Bills fans going bonkers for their boys ... That's what Kelly and Super Bowl teammates Thurman Thomas, Bruce Smith and Steve Tasker…

A fifth Indiana Jones movie has been announced for 2019. The thought of 74-year-old Harrison Ford leaping the abyss, strafing the enemy, evading mayhem and wiggling out of danger seems far-fetched. Yet the film almost certainly will be a financial success. People won't be able to stay away. So much enthusiasm has been committed to the Indiana Jones franchise. We're c…

One day again, a Buffalo Bills player will be able to call his shot and not have it backfire. Bills fans were pumped to hear Sammy Watkins demand more action last week. He was correct in saying his lack of catches so far made him and the Bills look bad. Bills GM Doug Whaley traded two first-round draft picks to get him, but Watkins entered Sunday's game against the Cinci…
