The Bills needed to bolster their cornerback depth this week, so they claimed Tony McRae off waivers from the Ravens. And since new receiver Deonte Thompson made an immediate impact in his first game, fellow receiver Kaelin Clay became the low man on the totem pole and was released to make room. Clay was signed by the Panthers on Tuesday evening, returning to the team …

The Buffalo Bills added some depth to their secondary Monday, claiming cornerback Tony McRae off waivers from the Baltimore Ravens. McRae, 24, has spent the past five games on the Ravens' active roster after being promoted from the practice squad in Week Two. The 5-foot-10, 185-pounder originally entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the Oakland Raiders. He sp…

Third and 9, ball at the Tampa Bay 32-yard line, 2 minutes remaining and the Buffalo Bills dial up a play for … Taiwan Jones? Yep, that happened Sunday. And guess what? It worked. Jones, the Bills’ third-string running back who hadn’t touched the ball offensively in the team’s first five games, took a shovel pass from Tyrod Taylor toward the left sideline, cu…

John Miller has gone from starter to backup to out of the lineup entirely over the last few weeks for the Buffalo Bills. Miller is a healthy inactive Sunday, when the Bills host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at New Era Field. That means Vlad Ducasse will start at right guard – and has won that competition. Also inactive for the Bills are: tight end Charles Clay (knee), …

The dizzying number of changes implemented by the Buffalo Bills heading into the 2017 season have been well-documented. Just 22 players who appeared in a game for the team at any point last year are back this year. A total of 21 offensive players who accounted for 3,752 snaps and 20 defensive players who took 7,089 snaps in 2016 are either playing elsewhere or out of th…

Don't blame Tyrod Taylor for Sunday's loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. No, he wasn't perfect. But the Buffalo Bills could be 5-0 if they had better receivers, or maybe if they used them at all. The Bills are in better shape than we expected. They enter their bye week tied atop the AFC East at 3-2, same as the New England Patriots and New York Jets. They hung tough …

CINCINNATI – Tyrod Taylor neatly summarized the Buffalo Bills’ offensive performance Sunday. “The offense didn’t play the way we needed to win against a very good defense,” Taylor said after a 20-16 loss at soggy Paul Brown Stadium. “I’ll take full responsibility for that.” Taylor’s numbers weren’t pretty – 20 of 37 for 166 yards, one touchdown …

CINCINNATI – There is a short list of players the Buffalo Bills can least afford to lose this season, and tight end Charles Clay is near the top. Unfortunately for the Bills, that’s what happened Sunday in a 20-16 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals at Paul Brown Stadium. Clay suffered a left knee injury in the second quarter when he was hit by Bengals safety Shawn Willi…

ATLANTA – A half dozen members of the Buffalo Bills continued their silent protest during the national anthem Sunday before the game against the Falcons. Running back Mike Tolbert, cornerback Shareece Wright, wide receiver Kaelin Clay, running back Taiwan Jones and defensive tackles Cedric Thornton and Jerel Worthy knelt while the song was played. They were joined by …

After a week unlike any the NFL has ever seen, one thing is clear: “Stick to football” is no longer an option. As Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said Thursday night after leading his team to a win over the Chicago Bears, “as much as some people want us to just shut up and play football … sports and politics have always intersected.” Never was t…

Grading the Bills RUNNING GAME: F Yes, you read that right. The league's top rushing offense for two years straight was straight-up stopped dead in its tracks Sunday. LeSean McCoy had 12 carries for 9 yards. Backup Mike Tolbert carried three times for 5 yards. Tyrod Taylor's 55 yards on eight carries – some from scrambles, some on designed runs – made the overall…

There’s something special about opening day, no matter what the expectations are for an NFL team. Tailgating plus good weather equals optimism – at least before kickoff. The good feelings should continue for the Buffalo Bills and their fans on Sunday when the New York Jets visit New Era Field. The Bills are heavy favorites in the first game of the Sean McDermott Era…
