(This is the second of a three-part series on the Bills' salary cap heading into the 2018 free-agency season.) One look at the top seven players on the Buffalo Bills' salary table shows why the team still is a ways from title contention. The top two – quarterback Tyrod Taylor and left tackle Cordy Glenn — surely aren't part of the long-term future of the team, regard…

The Buffalo Bills will have more spending power in 2018. Since taking over in May, General Manager Brandon Beane has gone to work on cleaning up the mess that was the Bills’ salary cap. “We made some headway this year with the cap to be able to roll over a decent amount of money, which will help,” Beane told reporters last month at the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala. “We…

Bills fans find themselves in a tough spot Sunday. Rooting for the Jacksonville Jaguars or New England Patriots in the AFC Championship Game is like choosing between watching a Sabres game or assembling furniture: both options are unpleasant. The Doug Marrone redemption angle this week has been exhausting: Marrone was a bullying micromanager when he was here who quit…

The Buffalo Bills enjoyed relatively good health on their way to their first playoff season of the millennium. The Bills lost a combined total of 39 games by starters to injuries in 2017. That ranked tied for ninth fewest in the NFL, according to roster analysis by The News. The league average was 54 games by starters lost to injury. It's good to be healthy. Each of …

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…

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…

Kelvin Benjamin will have surgery after the season to clean up a torn meniscus in his right knee. The Buffalo Bills’ No. 1 receiver revealed that Sunday after his team’s 24-16 victory over the Miami Dolphins at New Era Field. Benjamin suffered the injury Nov. 19 against the Los Angeles Chargers and missed the next two games. He returned in Week 14 against the Indiana…

The Buffalo Bills will have their No. 1 receiver Sunday against the Miami Dolphins at New Era Field. Kelvin Benjamin, who was listed as questionable on the final injury report, is active for the game. Running back Mike Tolbert is a healthy inactive, meaning Travaris Cadet will be the No. 2 running back behind LeSean McCoy. Also inactive for the Bills are quarterback Nat…

It's a de facto elimination game for the Buffalo Bills and Miami Dolphins on Sunday. A 9-7 record will give either team a fighting chance at earning a playoff spot. The Bills could give the Dolphins their eighth loss, while a Buffalo loss would drop them to 7-7. With a looming visit to New England, however, a Buffalo loss would feel like the end of their chances. Her…

The Buffalo Bills find themselves in an interesting situation. The quarterback they felt wasn't good enough is now needed to keep the team's postseason hopes alive. Tyrod Taylor will start Sunday against the Miami Dolphins after practicing fully this week following a one-game absence because of a knee injury. The next three weeks will be the biggest of Taylor's caree…

Bills

Tyrod Taylor is ready to return to the Buffalo Bills' starting lineup. Coach Sean McDermott made that announcement Friday morning ahead of Sunday's must-win game against the Miami Dolphins at New Era Field, saying Taylor has done everything in practice the team needed to see. "Tyrod is in a situation where he is good to go and will start Sunday against the Dolphins f…

Another week, another deep threat for the Buffalo Bills’ secondary to keep an eye on. Miami’s Kenny Stills will come to town Sunday averaging 15.0 yards per catch. Over the past three weeks, the Bills have faced three of the league’s top 13 players in that statistic, starting with Kansas City’s Tyreek Hill (No. 13 at 15.4 yards per reception), followed by New England’s …

Bills

If the Buffalo Bills have any hope of being a playoff team, they need a win Sunday. The 3-9 Indianapolis Colts have nothing to play for. While it may not feel like it after a stretch that has seen the Bills get blown out four times in five games, the team still has a fighting chance at the postseason, even if it will need some help. If the Bills get to 9-7, the New York…

Bills

Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor will not practice Wednesday because of a knee injury. Coach Sean McDermott declined to speculate on what that might mean for Taylor's availability for Sunday's game against the Indianapolis Colts. He said remains day to day. Given that Taylor's legs are big part of his game, McDermott said that would a "consideration" in whether Taylor …

Bills

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…
