Faith and football have long been intertwined. From players pointing toward the sky or taking a knee to pray after scoring a touchdown to the postgame prayer circle at midfield, examples are easy to find. In times of adversity, which the Buffalo Bills most certainly are going through now, players and coaches turn to their faith for answers and strength. “Sometimes …

The Buffalo Bills have gotten into the Thanksgiving spirit. More than half of the roster helped hand out meals for 600 families last week at the Food Bank of Western New York. Owner Kim Pegula and several dozen team employees also participated in the annual Thanksgiving Blitz. “This is really a very true showing of heart and compassion for people who are having a tough…

Say this for Sean McDermott: The Buffalo Bills’ rookie head coach has his players in perfect harmony, singing the same tune. With McDermott waffling on his starting quarterback – announcing Wednesday that Tyrod Taylor would return to that role Sunday against Kansas City – players offered up the same variation of support for the move that they did when rookie Natha…

Quarterback Tyrod Taylor Q: What’s up QB1? A: Not much. Q: Obviously you’re happy about the decision, but has this week kind of just been a blur for you? Has it been a crazy week for you? A: It’s been an interesting set of days but it’s the National Football League. You’ve got to be prepared for anything and focus-wise, you can’t let things break your…

Bills Mafia could use a little bit of a pick me up these days, so there's this: Wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin did not suffer any ligament damage when he injured his right knee Sunday against the Los Angeles Chargers. Even better, safety Micah Hyde should be fine, as well, after suffering a knee injury of his own in the 54-24 loss. Coach Sean McDermott provided those u…

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,…

Buffalo Bills safeties Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer know they will be in dangerous cross hairs Sunday against the New Orleans Saints. Drew Brees is one of the greatest manipulators of safeties ever to play quarterback. "He's skilled at what he does, and throwing off DBs is just one of the many skills that he has," Hyde said. "He uses his vision to hold the safety in t…

The Buffalo Bills ball-hawking defense didn't create any turnovers in last Thursday's loss to the New York Jets. The only other time the Bills recorded zero takeaways was their Week 2 defeat to the Carolina Panthers. Sunday's matchup also will be difficult. The surging New Orleans Saints come to New Era Field, where the Bills hope to solve passing mastermind Drew Bre…

Brian Masterson is a diehard Bills fan who hasn't missed a game in seven years. When the Bills signed Micah Hyde, he decided to get Hyde's jersey. He had to wait for two months, but the jersey arrived the night before the Oakland game. Of course, he wore it to the game. We will let Masterson tell you the rest in his own words: I picked Hyde’s jersey becaus…

That’s a version of the Buffalo Bills we haven’t seen this year – and fans surely don’t want to see again.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – Kelvin Benjamin's debut with the Buffalo Bills will have to wait. The wide receiver, acquired Tuesday in a trade with the Carolina Panthers, went through warmups with the Bills prior to Thursday night's game against the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium, but was declared inactive a short time later. "He only had a small amount of time to get …

Bills safety Micah Hyde received his highest overall grade so far in the 2017 season from Pro Football Focus for a stellar performance against the Raiders. His +3.6 grade was the best among 54 qualifying safeties in Week Eight. He allowed three catches on three targets for just seven yards, snagged an interception, and surrendered a passer rating of 39.6. He also made f…

It looked like it was going to be a long afternoon for Trae Elston. The Buffalo Bills’ safety found himself in coverage on back-to-back, 20-yard gains on the Oakland Raiders’ first drive Sunday. There was cause for concern about the injuries in the Buffalo secondary, and Elston’s tough start only heightened those. Those concerns, however, were quickly put to re…

The tide-turning play of Sunday's Buffalo Bills victory over the Oakland Raiders looked like a routine form tackle. Bills cornerback Leonard Johnson used sound fundamentals and dropped his shoulder into Oakland running back DeAndre Washington after a short check-down pass. But the Bills' defense is on a turnover-frenzy roll, and Johnson said he was thinking turnover all…

Rams and Philadelphia Eagles, spoke with The News by phone this week f…
