Nothing excites the masses like a quarterback change. The switch from Tyrod Taylor to Nathan Peterman this week dominates the conversation when it comes to the Buffalo Bills. It also overshadows the fact the Bills’ defense has completely fallen on its face the last two weeks. That stretch last Sunday when the New Orleans Saints ran the ball 24 times in a row was as…

LeSean McCoy didn't necessarily have a bad performance against the Saints, it's just that the game script didn't allow him to be a focal point of the Bills' offense. He carried the ball eight times for 49 yards – which included a 36-yard scamper – and 38 of those yards came before contact. He forced one missed tackle running the football against New Orleans. Thro…

One play stood out for Buffalo Bills right tackle Jordan Mills as he watched video of Oakland sackmaster Khalil Mack in last week's game against Kansas City. Mack used one arm to bull rush Chiefs tackle Eric Fisher backward into the lap of quarterback Alex Smith. "I looked at that play about 10 times and looked at what not to do," Mills said after the Bills' 34-14 vi…

Jordan Mills vs. Khalil Mack The Bills dared to leave their unheralded right tackle one on one vs. the Raiders' sackmaster on a bunch of pass plays. It was not double-team blocking against Mack all the time. Mack had just two tackles. Neither he nor sack-make Bruce Irvin took down Tyrod Taylor. Mack rushed mostly from the right. But Cordy Glenn did a good job against…

Khalil Mack vs. Jordan Mills It will not just be the Bills' right tackle against the Raiders' superstar edge rusher. The Bills often will have a running back or a tight end on Mack's side of the field. Mack rushes off right tackle 75 percent of the time and off left tackle 25 percent. One of the few times Mack was one-on-one with Mills in last season's game, Mack hit Ty…

Cordy Glenn was active for Buffalo's outing against the Bengals but did not play, a rather surprising development for the team's highest-paid offensive player. In his place at left tackle was rookie Dion Dawkins, who had an admirable albeit unspectacular September standing in for the veteran. On the right side was the usual starter, Jordan Mills. With Charles Clay leavi…

In the NFL, it's all about creating pressure on the quarterback, and that football philosophy was on full display in the Bills victory over the Falcons in Week Four. Stats courtesy of Pro Football Focus. Bills' offense On 25 pass plays, the Bills offensive line allowed five quarterback pressures (one sack, four hurries). That equated to the 10th-best Pass-Block Effici…

The Buffalo Bills host the Denver Broncos in a Week Three outing that's the second-straight game with many of familiar faces squaring off against each other. Rick Dennison was the Broncos offensive coordinator over the past two seasons, so he certainly knows Trevor Siemian, Demaryius Thomas, and Emmanuel Sanders very well. Let's assess some critical one-on-one matchu…

Mark Gaughan’s Matchup Watch: Broncos at Bills Von Miller vs. Jordan Mills: Miller is the key matchup in every Denver game, and it won’t likely be one-on-one much of the time. The Bills will have to use a tight end and/or running back to help keep Miller off Tyrod Taylor. Denver will use blitzes to make it harder for the Bills to lock onto No. 58. Miller’s speed a…

It was tough sledding for the Buffalo Bills on the ground against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday – but just how bad was the run game? Let's take a look at how the offensive line graded. (Bills stats courtesy of Pro Football Focus.) Against the Panthers, the only Bills who received positive run-blocking grades were rookie offensive tackle Dion Dawkins (+0.7) and…

It's homecoming week for Sean McDermott, but the Buffalo Bills' coach did his best to downplay the significance of that Monday. McDermott will take the AFC East-leading Bills to Carolina for a Week Two meeting with the Panthers, with whom he spent the past six seasons as defensive coordinator. Surely this date had to be highlighted on the calendar, right coach? "I ac…

John Miller and Jordan Mills have each withstood challenges this summer to remain the Buffalo Bills' starters at right guard and right tackle, respectively. Coach Sean McDermott said Monday that both would be in the starting lineup for Sunday's regular-season opener against the New York Jets. Miller, who had been the No. 1 right guard since the Bills made him a third…

Dion Dawkins' this-side, no-that-side start to his professional career will continue Saturday. The Buffalo Bills' rookie offensive tackle will start on the left side against the Baltimore Ravens in the third preseason game Saturday night. Dawkins had worked at left tackle exclusively throughout the spring before moving to right tackle at the start of training camp, wher…
