I'm not ready to say Buffalo Bills coach Sean McDermott and General Manager Brandon Beane aren't advancing the cause, but they've fielded a team that's performing as woefully as any of the franchise's previous incarnations. Forget the .500 record. Buffalo over the past three games has been poor …

The Buffalo Bills are in the thick of a playoff race. With a 5-3 record, the team holds the sixth and final spot in the AFC entering Week 10.

1. The Buffalo Bills will be without running back Taiwan Jones for the rest of the season. Coach Sean McDermott announced Friday that Jones suffered a broken arm late in Thursday’s 34-21 loss to the New York Jets while attempting to recover an onside kick.

The Bills had given the agent for wide receiver Anquan Boldin, who had announced he was retiring 13 days after joining the Bills last August, permission to find a team that would want to acquire him in a trade. However, no such deal was made. Beane told reporters on Friday that he had no plans to release Boldin if a trade did not materialize. During his news conferen…

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Doug Marrone turned on a theatrical smile, crouched for added effect and would have been flashing full-fledged jazz hands had he merely wiggled his wrists. "I'm a believer!" Marrone beamed from his ta-da pose. "I'm a believer!" The Jacksonville Jaguars coach had been asked what a change of scenery could mean for his newest player, defensive tackl…

After the Buffalo Bills stomped the Oakland Raiders on Sunday, two friends sent similar texts. Is it OK to hope? The Bills are 5-2, a half-game out of first place in the AFC East and in the top wild-card spot. They are 4-0 at home for the first time since 1995. They've allowed the NFL's second-fewest points. Every move coach Sean McDermott and GM Brandon Beane …
