Nathan Peterman's the kind of guy who can find the upside to a trip to the DMV. So it should come as no surprise that the Buffalo Bills' quarterback can look back on what most would consider a disastrous rookie season and put a positive spin on it. "Absolutely. Every opportunity, every practice, every game is a great learning opportunity for me," he said. "Definitely…

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…

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 …

Coach Sean McDermott did not name a starting quarterback for Sunday's home finale against the Miami Dolphins when he met with the media on Wednesday, although he said Tyrod Taylor is making progress. Taylor missed last Sunday's victory against the Indianapolis Colts because of a knee injury suffered on the first series the week before against New England. Taylor played …

Rick Dennison worked Sunday’s game for the Buffalo Bills from the coaches’ booth upstairs. At some point in the second quarter, the offensive coordinator’s view “got really blurry” because of the snow, he said Monday. That opening was all the comedians on Twitter needed. “What’s his excuse for the other 12 games,” was the first response received when relaying Denniso…

The Bills began preparation for next week's game against the Miami Dolphins with questions at quarterback, a recurring theme for Buffalo the past month. Head coach Sean McDermott said Tyrod Taylor has made progress over the past couple of days but his status remains day-to-day. He was inactive Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts after suffering a knee injury against N…

The Buffalo Bills tried their darnedest to reduce their playoff chances Sunday. Sean McDermott seemingly playing for a tie by punting on fourth-and-1 from the Indianapolis Colts' 41-yard line with 4:07 left in overtime. You don't count on emergency quarterback Joe Webb hitting Deonte Thompson for 34 yards and LeSean McCoy finishing off the game with a 21-yard touchdo…

LeSean McCoy had a story to tell. The Buffalo Bills’ running back hadn’t even taken a question at his postgame press conference Sunday following his team’s 13-7 overtime victory over the Indianapolis Colts at New Era Field before McCoy explained why he had confidence in quarterback Joe Webb. Back in 2010, when McCoy was still in Philadelphia, the Eagles were cruising…

Grading the Bills RUNNING GAME: A Shady loves the snow. LeSean McCoy plowed his way to 156 yards on 32 carries, including the game-winning, 21-yard run in overtime. On a day when the conditions were likely the worst they have ever been for a home game, he gave the Bills exactly what they needed. Backup Mike Tolbert returned from a three-game absence to rush six times…

Analysis

Deonte Thompson had only 19 catches for the Buffalo Bills this season and he made only one grab Sunday. It was a remarkable one, and it keyed the Bills' 13-7 snow-globe, overtime victory over the Indianapolis Colts. Thompson's 35-yard catch from quarterback Joe Webb with 1:52 to go converted a third-and-6 situation. It gave the Bills a first down at the Colts' 27. Th…

Observations from the Bills’ incredible, 13-7 overtime win against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday at New Era Field. 1. The spectacle of the weather is what everyone will remember from this game. Veteran writers, some of whom have been covering the Bills since their current stadium opened in 1973, said they have never seen a game with such poor visibility. Starting abo…

Buffalo Bills rookie quarterback Nathan Peterman left Sunday's game against the Indianapolis Colts at New Era Field and was placed in the league-mandated concussion protocol, coach Sean McDermott said after the Bills' 13-7 overtime win. Peterman was hurt with 4:59 remaining in the third quarter when he was hit by Colts defenders Johnathan Hankins and Antonio Morrison at…

A quarterback leads the Buffalo Bills in snaps on special teams. That neatly summarizes the versatility that has been Joe Webb’s key to lasting eight years in the NFL. “He’s very unique that way,” coach Sean McDermott said of Webb, who might be just a snap away from entering the game at quarterback Sunday when the Bills host the Indianapolis Colts at New Era Field. …
