With little positive to draw on after the Saints’ 47-10 thrashing of the Bills, let’s pick up where we left off and…

When Jerry Hughes criticized Jim Kelly on Monday, he didn't just take a stand against the greatest quarterback in Bills' history, inspirational cancer survivor and communal treasure.

PITTSFORD — One practice in and he's already hurt. It's probably not anything catastrophic, but new Bills wide receiver Jordan Matthews suffered a chest injury in his first practice with the team.
