Sean McDermott and Brandon Beane were given funzo questionnaires for the Buffalo Bills' 2017 media guide. Favorite movie, best concert attended, biggest pet peeve, last book read and so forth. The Q&A's were conducted separately, but they produced a striking parallel. In response to "biggest obstacle overcome," they gave the same answer. "Breaking into the NFL…

Tyrod Taylor's morning began with a car accident. Barely on his way to New Era Field, his black 2013 Mercedes G63 wagon was involved in a fender bender downtown. The Buffalo Bills sent a car to collect their quarterback. Saturday's game against the Miami Dolphins also started poorly for him. The Bills went three and out on their first two possessions. Taylor passed thre…

When the Buffalo Bills revealed this year's promotional slogan, all I could think of were the ways it would backfire. It's a double entendre. The fan base is unfailingly loyal, and the team sure does love to hand off. Bills Run Deep. As does the pain. You have to go back a lot of years to remember when the Bills regularly thrilled their fans. The last of the Su…

Bills receiver Percy Harvin didn't practice Thursday or Friday with what the Bills described as an illness. That turned out to severe migraine headaches, which kept him out of Sunday's game against the Jaguars. Harvin had a history of being limited by migraines early in his career, but that hadn't been an issue during his two years with the Bills. "Percy, he was tr…

The Buffalo Bills have a knack for generating more questions than answers as the season gets shorter. For one Sunday, anyway, they managed to survive newfound disarray. What occurred at Paul Brown Stadium resembled a preseason exhibition with so many replacements playing significant roles, but games in November count. The Bills notched a critical 16-12, all-hands-…

Rex Ryan says the Bills are ready to unleash Percy Harvin this week. Quarterback Tyrod Taylor wants to get him the ball more. Offensive coordinator Anthony Lynn says he’ll probably start. All of that sounds good to Harvin. “I definitely think I’m ready to take that next step,” said Harvin, who didn’t get on the stat sheet against Seattle in his first game s…

Percy Harvin’s skills didn’t deteriorate over his six-month retirement. He didn’t forget how to play wide receiver. But right now, his brain is seeing things faster than his body is reacting. That’s the dreaded “rust” athletes face after taking time off. The only cure is more repetitions, and Harvin started taking those in earnest at Thursday’s practice. …

One of the under-the-radar questions facing the Buffalo Bills heading into the 2016 season is who will return kicks and punts for the team. Of the eight players who did that more than once last year, six of them are no longer with the team. Percy Harvin retired. Leodis McKelvin was cut, as were Marcus Thigpen, Boobie Dixon, Denarius Moore and Dan Harren. That leaves just…

1. Maybe, when nobody’s looking, Richie Incognito is still the same. Maybe he didn’t learn a thing from his time in Miami. Maybe those terrible text messages he sent to former teammate Jonathan Martin are a window into the soul of a hateful person. Or, maybe, Incognito’s story is one of redemption. Truthfully, I don’t know. As a reporter, I do get more access to p…

1. Watching Cam Newton carve up the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday to reach the Super Bowl likely left some Buffalo Bills fans wondering “what if?” Rewind to the 2011 NFL Draft, when the Carolina Panthers selected Newton with the No. 1 overall pick. Remember that Andrew Luck was eligible for that draft, but elected to return to Stanford for another season. That decision …

The Buffalo Bills made a bit of NFL history Sunday, becoming the first team to ever have two 100-yard rushers and a 150-yard receiver in the same game. Not surprisingly, then, our weekly review is bullish on the offense. Here is a look at whose stock is rising and falling after Week Nine: Three up Sammy Watkins: So much for that sore ankle. Watkins played through the …

The Buffalo Bills hope they've turned the corner with regards to injuries. Despite losing wide receiver Percy Harvin for the season, the team is healthier coming out of the bye week. Defensive tackle Kyle Williams and offensive tackle Cyrus Kouandjio have both been ruled out because of knee injuries. Here is a projection on the five other players who might sit out Sunday …

The Buffalo Bills are refreshed following their bye week. We'll start to learn Sunday whether the time off was enough to heal the wounds that came with a 3-4 start to the season. The Miami Dolphins visit Ralph Wilson Stadium at 1 p.m. in a game that has an elimination-type feel to it regarding the AFC playoff race. The Dolphins have an identical 3-4 record and would like …

The Buffalo Bills’ wide receivers have dominated headlines in recent weeks. Unfortunately, it’s not because of anything they’ve done on the field. Both Sammy Watkins and Percy Harvin have lit up social media and talk-radio airwaves for situations that have nothing to do with catching footballs. First, Watkins made waves when his comments about wanting more targets…

A 3-4 record through the first seven weeks of the season is not where the Buffalo Bills expected to be. The way they got there, with a 34-31 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday inside London's Wembley Stadium, is particularly disappointing. Here's a look at whose stock is rising and falling with the bye week having arrived. Three Up Robert Woods: Bills coach Rex …
