You have to be worried about the talent level of the Buffalo Bills' front seven in the wake of Sunday's 47-10 shellacking at the hands of the New Orleans Saints. The defense of Sean McDermott and Leslie Frazier relies on a dominant front four. McDermott benefitted in Carolina from the beefy defensive tackle combination of Kawann Short and Star Lotulelei, both high-end, …

The New Orleans Saints dropped by New Era Field on Sunday to slap around the Buffalo Bills. The Saints handed their hosts one of the mousiest defeats in NFL history, stunned Bills fans with unchecked dominance and even drank their beer. We should have known how much New Orleans would feel at home 8:42 after the opening kickoff. Mark Ingram scored his first touchdown,…

It would have been easy for the Buffalo Bills to make an example out of Adolphus Washington. The second-year defensive tackle was arrested in his home state of Ohio back in July on a misdemeanor charge of improperly carrying a concealed firearm. With a new coaching staff that placed a big emphasis on character under Sean McDermott, the Bills could have simply cut Washi…

Below are the Buffalo Bills' snap counts for the 2017 season, with some observations from the Week 9 loss to the New York Jets. • With wide receiver Zay Jones hobbled by a knee injury that limited him to 40 snaps, veteran Jordan Matthews was the workhorse at the position, taking 71 of 75 snaps. • LeSean McCoy played 55 snaps, but got just 12 touches as the Bills …

It’s one of the age-old truths in football: Win the turnover battle, (most likely) win the game. The 2017 Buffalo Bills are following that script to the letter. The Bills have won the turnover battle in six of their seven games, including all five wins, and broke even in the other. They’re not just winning the battle lately, either. They’re blowing teams out. Dati…

Textbook power-running execution on LeSean McCoy's 48-yard touchdown run was the exclamation point of a superb ground game for the Buffalo Bills Sunday. The Bills attacked downhill off left tackle to outnumber the Raiders at the point of attack, and McCoy showed his breakaway speed when he got to the second level of the defense. Vlad Ducasse pulled from right guard a…

Below are the Buffalo Bills' snap counts for the 2017 season, with some observations from the Week Eight win over the Raiders. • The coaches mean it when they say they're going to stick by rookie receiver Zay Jones. He played the most snaps of any wide receiver, with Jordan Matthews next. Deonte Thompson got two more snaps than Andre Holmes. That looks like it will be…

Khalil Mack possessed traits that enraptured NFL scouts. Yeah, but could he fit into any defensive scheme? Mack was a hellacious pass-rusher for the University at Buffalo, dominating the Mid-American Conference and amassing school records. Yeah, but how would he stack up against pedigreed competition? He would erupt from his stance, use uncanny leverage skills …

The timing isn't good for the Buffalo Bills to meet the Oakland Raiders. Quarterback Derek Carr and Co. are coming off a big win in Week Seven, 31-30 over Kansas City, and come in with extra rest having played on Thursday Night Football. Carr threw for more than 400 yards in the win over the Chiefs, as Oakland's high-powered offense started to find itself. The Raiders w…

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…

Anquan Boldin apparently is ready to end his brief retirement – if another team makes an offer acceptable to the Buffalo Bills. ESPN's Adam Schefter obtained a letter sent Thursday from Bills General Brandon Beane to Boldin's agent, Tom Condon, granting him permission to seek out a trade partner. Boldin, 37, retired from the Bills on Aug. 20, less than two weeks af…

Hello, my name is Tim G., and I'm a Process-aholic. It has been almost 18 years since I last saw a Bills playoff game, but now I can see my way out of this dark tunnel. Maybe the Bills won't return to the postseason this January, but for the first time since thinking 2002 fourth overall draft choice Mike Williams would be a foundation block, I have serenity. Grant…

Normally the sleepiest of all trade deadlines, there has been an unusual amount of chatter about what might happen with the Buffalo Bills between now and Halloween. That's because General Manager Brandon Beane has shown a willingness to made bold moves, and the team has a pair of players who have rumors circulated about them in recent weeks. So addressing the Oct. 31…

The Buffalo Bills were called for six accepted penalties against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week Five, and half of them were very impactful. As a reminder, throughout the season, we're reviewing all of the team's penalties from the previous game. Each penalty will be labeled based on its impact: Minimal Moderate Significant Let's examine all of the Bills' p…

Any Bills fan needing a boost in the middle of the work week need only look at the NFL standings. There at the top of the AFC East, alone in first place, are the Buffalo Bills. A 3-1 start has Western New York buzzing -- even if the team itself isn’t letting early success get inside their heads. “We’ve got a lot of room to grow as a football team,” coach …
