Rumblings in Buffalo before the season even began were that Taylor was not the Bills' quarterback of the future and he was believed to be on a short leash. But through eight games, he has been nothing shy of stellar. He was 154-for-236 with 1,628 yards passing, 10 touchdowns, and just two interceptions, good for a 95.8 passer rating and 7.36 adjusted-yards-per-attempt, he …

Today, she’s known as @Bills_Chick on Twitter. But back in 2005, she was a young student, away at law school, just looking to connect with other Bills fans. She felt disconnected from her hometown sports teams and from the city’s sports bubble as a whole. That’s when she decided to jump on the internet. She created an anonymous online moniker that referenced Bills le…

Early last week, Maggie Gray was debating just how much Buffalo Bills swag she should wear to the Thursday night football game against the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium. The host of "SI Now" for SI.com and "The Moose and Maggie Show" for CBS Radio hadn’t been to a Bills game as a regular fan in over four years. She was excited. But she was also super anxious. …

Since the bye, the Bills have had seven takeaways to just one giveaway in their two games – upping their season turnover differential to a NFL best +14, with no team in sight, nearly double the second-place Jacksonville Jaguars, at +8. But the Bills ability to create turnovers on offense and limit them on defense is not just seasonally exceptional, it is historically exc…

Former NFL wide receiver Nate Burleson is now an analyst on "Good Morning Football" on the NFL Network. He hasn't exactly been bullish on the Bills. Their victory Sunday against the Oakland Raiders has changed that. Burleson offered an apology to the Bills Mafia on Monday's show: "For all the Bills fans out there, you don’t need to tweet me anymore," he said. "I…

The Bills re-signed running back Joe Banyard to the 53-man roster Saturday to fill the roster spot vacated by Marcell Dareus, who was traded Friday to the Jacksonville Jaguars. Banyard, who was signed in March and made the team out of training camp, was released Oct. 18 when the Bills signed wide receiver Deonte Thompson. Banyard, a journeyman who has bounced around …

Carlin Hartman has been coaching college basketball for almost two decades. And even though he wouldn’t mind winning an NCAA championship before the Buffalo Bills win a Super Bowl, he admits he’d be just fine with it if the Bills hoisted a trophy first. Hartman, an assistant coach at the University of Oklahoma, was born and raised in Buffalo. He grew up on the East …

The Buffalo Bills now sit at 4-2 after their 30-27 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Defensively, this was in many ways their worst game of the season, as it was the first game of the season in which they allowed more than 20 points and their first with over 400 yards total offense, but their defense continues to generate turnovers — three, for the third straight ga…

Bills vs. Buccaneers: Ten games all-time. Bills record: 3-7 (.300). First game: On Sept. 26, 1976, the Bills topped the Bucs 14-9. O.J. Simpson had just 39 yard rushing on 20 carries, but Joe Ferguson was 12-for-22 with 188 yards passing and two touchdowns. This was just the third game in Tampa Bay’s franchise history, and their third loss, en route to losing th…

Oct. 17, 1965 – The Bills entered the day with a 4-1 record, set to take on the Chiefs at Kansas City Municipal Stadium. This contest, unlike the other nostalgic game pieces I have written, such as their 38-31 victory over the Baltimore Colts on Oct. 12, 1975, did not feature a dominant, high-powered offense. Instead, it was emphasized by a strong, gritty defensive pe…

Among the many injuries Sunday, one in particular bears watching for Bills fans. Tampa Bay quarterback Jameis Winston left the game against the Arizona Cardinals in the first quarter with a right shoulder injury and is listed as doubtful to return. That could mean former Bills QB Ryan Fitzpatrick might be leading the Bucs into New Era Field next Sunday. https://tw…

The Bills enter the bye week in a three-way tie with the Jets and Patriots for first place, but will come out of it trailing by a half-game, as New York will host New England on Sunday — the winner will take the division lead. With no game to prepare for this weekend and no historical stats to uncover for the Buffalo Bills’ upcoming matchup, let’s instead take a l…
