If the Buffalo Bills hope to end a run of 15 straight seasons without a postseason appearance, they'll have to string a bunch of wins together. Their next opportunity comes at 1 p.m. Sunday against Philadelphia. The Bills enter the game against the 5-7 Eagles as slight favorites in their first of three straight games against teams from the woeful NFC East. Here are all t…

The Buffalo Bills are as healthy as they've been since the start of the 2015 season. Having played on Thursday night in Week 10, they've had plenty of time to rest – and draw up a game plan for the New England Patriots. Defensive tackle Kyle Williams in the only player who has been ruled out for Monday night's game. It's 50-50 as to whether he will be able to play agai…

Very few people are giving the Buffalo Bills much of a chance Monday night against the New England Patriots. The Bills are at least touchdown underdogs in the major Las Vegas sportsbooks, and up to 9-point 'dogs online. That's a sign that the general public is putting its money on New England moving to 10-0. At 5-4, the Bills are clinging to the sixth and final spot in t…

They don't ask how -- just how many -- at the end of the season. The Buffalo Bills have been left to repeat that motto after a couple of their victories this season, including Thursday night's 22-17 win against the New York Jets. It wasn't pretty, especially at the end, but the Bills found a way to get to 5-4 and now have 11 days off to prepare for the New England Patrio…

It's always an adventure with the Buffalo Bills' special teams. The second quarter against the New York Jets on Thursday night at MetLife Stadium was no different. First, the good: A 47-yard field goal by Dan Carpenter tied the game, 3-3. On the ensuing kickoff, Bills safety Bacarri Rambo knocked the ball away from Jets returner Devin Smith. The fumble was recovered by f…

If the Buffalo Bills see their 15-year playoff drought extend to a 16th season, remember Oct. 25, 2015. A loss to lowly Jacksonville Jaguars is the type of defeat that can sink a team. The way it came about had to be nauseating for all of Bills Nation. After erasing a 27-3 deficit with 28 unanswered points, the Bills couldn't hold a 31-27 lead in the fourth quarter. Jagu…

If there can be such a thing as a must-win game in Week Five of the NFL season, Sunday was it for the Buffalo Bills. A loss to the rebuilding Tennessee Titans would have been big trouble for the Bills, dropping them below .500 on the season with a game against the undefeated Bengals on deck. That didn't happen, though, as the Bills escaped Nashville with a 14-13 win and …

The Buffalo Bills continue the home-heavy portion of their schedule at 1 p.m. Sunday afternoon when the New York Giants visit Ralph Wilson Stadium. After splitting games against Indianapolis and New England at home in the first two weeks of the season, the Bills went on the road for the first time in Week Three and pummeled the Miami Dolphins, 41-14. The Giants, meanwhile…

One of the Buffalo Bills' best recent finds will be with the team for the foreseeable future. Cornerback Nickell Robey, who made the team as an undrafted free agent in 2013, has agreed to a contract extension, the team announced Sunday morning. Length and value of the extension are not yet available. Robey, 23, has played in all 32 games the past two seasons with eight s…

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers had been intercepted three times this season coming into today's game against the Buffalo Bills at Ralph Wilson Stadium. So if you were going to put odds on Bacarri Rambo intercepting him twice, they would have been really, really small. But that's exactly what happened in the Bills' 21-13 upset victory over the Packers. Rambo…

Nickell Robey was left shaking his head, and it's hard to blame him. The Buffalo Bills' cornerback was called for illegal contact on a third-and-6 play from the Buffalo 19-yard line Sunday against the Denver Broncos at Sports Authority Field. The penalty, which came with Robey in coverage against Broncos receiver Wes Welker, gave Denver a first down at the Bills' 14. The…

Advanced statistics website Pro Football Focus has finished its grading of the Bills' Week 13 victory over the Cleveland Browns.

Seantrel Henderson and Kraig Urbik had the highest pass protection grades for the Bills, while Cordy Glenn surrendered one sack and one …

Johnny Football couldn't rescue the Cleveland Browns today against the Buffalo Bills at Ralph Wilson Stadium. Johnny Manziel, the Browns' much-hyped rookie quarterback, relieved Brian Hoyer in the fourth quarter and promptly took his team on an eight-play, 80-yard touchdown drive to bring the Browns within 10 points of the Bills, 20-10. Buffalo, responded, however with a…

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. -- Quick highlights from the Buffalo Bills' demoralizing loss to the Miami Dolphins in Sun Life Stadium ... What it means: Bills fans are nauseous.

Bills player of the…

The Bills’ best defensive backs might as well have formed a musical trio and sung in harmony. All were in unison about what doomed them last week against the San Diego Chargers. Corey Graham practically spat the words on the locker room floor. “Pick plays,” he said. “They picked us,” Stephon Gilmore said, “and we didn’t adjust.” Aaron Williams adde…
