The Raiders were without Marshawn Lynch on Sunday after his one-game suspension for putting his hands on an official. That meant bigger roles for Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington. Richard had five carries for 21 yards and five receptions for 35 yards. Washington posted six carries for 26 yards and caught eight passes for 62 yards and a touchdown. But they each lo…

Marshawn Lynch won't play in the Raiders' game against the Bills this week due to suspension. But Marshawn does what Marshawn wants, and apparently that even includes practicing (full-contact) against high school players at his alma mater. Lynch posted a video on Instagram Thursday morning showing him putting in work against high school players at Oakland Tech, where he…

Analysis

The standings were not supposed to look this way in Week Eight. The Oakland Raiders were supposed to be Super Bowl contenders entering 2017, with a Pro Bowl quarterback in Derek Carr and All-World defensive end in Khalil Mack. The Buffalo Bills were afterthoughts in the AFC, thought by many to simply be killing time until the 2018 draft. A funny thing happened once t…

NFL sideline protests had been a fading issue. A few players still kneel or raise a fist during "The Star-Spangled Banner," but the regular season began three weeks ago. Fans are watching the games, tracking their fantasy players, betting the point spreads. While Colin Kaepernick's continued unemployment after kneeling out national anthems last season remains a debate, p…

The divisional round of the NFL postseason featured three players from Western New York, a University at Buffalo graduate and 10 former Buffalo Bills. Here is look how each of those players did: Western New Yorkers • Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski: The Amherst native made seven catches for 83 yards and two touchdowns in a 27-20 victory over Kansas City. Gronk played 53 of…

Fred Jackson knows the Buffalo Bills' backfield has been battered since the team cut him. Jackson hasn't missed a game for the Seattle Seahawks as a passing-down/relief back. The Bills, meanwhile, have three hurt runners. LeSean McCoy has a bad hamstring. Karlos Williams is recovering from a concussion. Cierre Wood suffered a season-ending knee injury Sunday. "I don't h…

RENTON, Wash. -- When the Buffalo Bills cut Thurman Thomas 14 years ago, he signed with the archrival Miami Dolphins out of spite. Fred Jackson had a chance to do the contemporary equivalent by joining the New England Patriots. The Patriots and Seattle Seahawks reached out to Jackson about an hour after the Bills released him last week. Each defending conference champ of…

They say moving can be the most stressful time in a person's life. C.J. Spiller knows this now. He has been back in Orchard Park this week, packing up five years of Buffalo Bills memories before starting his new job with the New Orleans Saints. "I thought it would be a smooth cleanout," Spiller said Thursday morning at a Tim Hortons around the corner from Ralph Wilson St…

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Alan Branch's last act for the Buffalo Bills was vomiting out of his car door while drunk and behind the wheel in Cheektowaga. Branch already had been considered a waste. He skipped voluntary offseason workouts, arrived to training camp grossly out of shape and got buried on the depth chart. The Bills had signed him in December 2013 to a three-year con…

Malcolm Butler, sweet redemption is yours. Butler, the New England Patriots' rookie undrafted free agent safety out of West Alabama, intercepted Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson at the goal line with 26 seconds remaining, giving his team an incredible victory in Super Bowl XLIX. Butler played the hero just two plays after looking like the goat. He was in cover…

Marshawn Lynch started to impose his will on the New England Patriots in the third quarter of Super Bowl XLIX. The Seattle Seahawks' running back, a former first-round draft pick of the Buffalo Bills, gained 45 of his 90 yards through three quarters on eight carries, including runs of 15 and 14 yards on back-to-back drives. Those ended in a field goal and touchdown, respe…

Putting Marshawn Lynch, Rob Gronkowski and comedian Conan O'Brien in the same room was a brilliant idea by itself. But Thursday night on TBS' "Conan," the eccentric trio gathered in a Courtyard Marriott in Phoenix to play the yet-to-be-released video game "Mortal Kombat X." The video was part of Conan's regular mini-series Clueless Gamer, which is essentially a video-game…

PHOENIX -- Marshawn Lynch's defiant behavior wore thin in Western New York long before he brought them to the national stage with Seattle Seahawks. Lynch's antics never will get tiresome for old friend Fred Jackson. "I laugh every time," Jackson said Wednesday at the Super Bowl media center. "Guys that know Marshawn know he's the biggest jokester and character you will e…
