By now, serious Buffalo Bills fans can recite what their team must do Sunday to reach the playoffs. The Bills, of course must win. They also need games on each coast and in the middle of the country to fall their way and break any ties. "When you're in your last game and dependent on other people out of your control," Bills Wall of Famer Joe Ferguson said, "it's just…

This season, we have been taking periodic looks at interesting Bills’ numbers, facts and oddities throughout the years, with a simple goal of uncovering one fun "did you know?" for each season throughout team history. We left off with 1979, when first overall draft pick Tom Cousineau spurned the Bills to play in Canada, a squandered draft pick that somehow turned into one …

Trust the process, they said. This time will be different, they said. 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 …

Jordan Matthews found himself getting anxious. The Buffalo Bills' No. 1 receiver sat out the entire preseason with a chip fracture in his sternum. Then the first half of Sunday's season opener against the New York Jets came and went at New Era Field with Matthews making just one catch for 14 yards. "It definitely took me a while just to be able to get back into it," …

Paul Posluszny was two steps behind but probably couldn't see him through the exhaust fumes. LeSean McCoy was gone. On the first play out of halftime, the Buffalo Bills were on their own 25-yard line. Tyrod Taylor took the snap out of a pistol formation, pivoted to his left and tucked the ball between McCoy's forearms. McCoy locked his left hand, surgically repair…

In a blink, detailed storylines can project through the mind. We might experience a lifetime in our dreams although asleep just 30 minutes. They say when you're about to die, your entire life flashes before your eyes. An NFL punt takes about two seconds from the ball being snapped until it's kicked. That's how long it took Walt Patulski to visualize the career he …

You know your team is threadbare when the loss of Brandon Tate makes you question a higher power. The Buffalo Bills went into Sunday's game against the New England Patriots with four healthy wide receivers. Tate was one of them. He left with a concussion in the third quarter, entrusting the rest of the demoralizing 41-25 defeat to Walter Powell, Justin Hunter and a l…
