JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Sunday's playoff game was there to be won, but the Buffalo Bills demonstrated they're not quite ready to challenge for anything more than our hearts just yet. Rookie head coach Sean McDermott and first-year General Manager Brandon Beane made progress in establishing a new Bills era. Now we get to watch them try to turn a plucky club into a true cont…

Tyrod Taylor's 281 passing yards Sunday were his second-most this year and the sixth most of his career. He left too many plays on the field. It was not a good enough overall performance for the Buffalo Bills' quarterback in the 37-16 loss to the New England Patriots. Taylor took six sacks. The first four were his fault, either by running into pressure or holding …

By Christopher Gasper, Boston Globe FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — 'Tis the season for giving, but Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is more into receiving when he plays the Buffalo Bills. One-handed catches aren't the only thing Gronkowski holds onto against Buffalo. Gronk holds a grudge against the Bills. He takes it out on them every time he plays them. Sunday at Gillette…

Bills coach Sean McDermott Q: Why the punt on fourth and one, down seven? SM: Yeah, just we went for it earlier in the game on fourth down and didn’t get it. The game was close at that point and wanted to come away with points early in the fourth quarter there. I think it was a seven-point game. I wanted to come away with points. Obviously, it didn’t turn out. Q:…

PATS-BILLS MATCHUP WINNERS Rob Gronkowski vs. Leslie Frazier The Bills "held" the All-Pro tight end to five catches for 67 yards and one touchdown. Considering Gronkowski was averaging 85 yards a game this season, it wasn't bad defense. Yet Gronkowski showed his greatness on his 17-yard TD catch, twisting his body to make a one-handed catch. The Bills did a lot of br…

The failure of the Buffalo Bills' offense to capitalize on scoring chances cost the team its upset bid Sunday in New England. The Bills were 0 for 4 in the red zone in the 37-16 loss. Quarterback Tyrod Taylor and his receiving corps continually came up short inside the Patriots' 20-yard line. Those missed opportunities lead this week's 10 plays that shaped the game: …

BOSTON – The out-of-town scoreboard will be just as important for the Buffalo Bills on Sunday as their result in New England. With Baltimore having won Saturday night, the biggest game remaining on the Week 16 schedule for the Bills involves the Chargers and Jets. A loss by Los Angeles would mean the Bills would go to Week 17 needing a win against Miami and a loss by ei…

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Both teams have downplayed the vengeance. Buffalo Bills cornerback Tre'Davious White skillfully counteracted inflammatory statements he made right after New England Patriots tight Rob Gronkowski delivered a flying elbow to the back of the rookie's head just three weeks ago. Gronkowski twice said Friday he has concentrated on preparing "with the bo…

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Since leaving the Buffalo Bills, cornerback Stephon Gilmore has roused the rabble with comments about how much he enjoys the way his new team operates. In praising the New England Patriots for the traits that have made them a dynasty or at the very least relevant, Bills fans have taken Gilmore's words as insults toward them. To wit, he tweeted: "M…

Bills DTs vs. Joe Thuney Thuney struggled in pass protection in the first meeting in Buffalo three weeks ago. Look for the Pats' left guard to be highly motivated for an improved performance. The Pats drafted Thuney in the third round in 2016, and he has started every game the past two years. He had pass-protection struggles as a rookie. His performance has improved thi…

Take this to the bank when the Buffalo Bills visit New England Sunday: The Patriots will be playing in the Bills' red zone. New England's offense moves up and down the field on everybody. The Pats rank No. 2 in the NFL in yards gained, and they're No. 2 in red-zone possessions. They move inside the opponent's 20-yard line more than four times a game on average. The B…

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — For seventeen unremitting years, the New England Patriots have thumped the Buffalo Bills' skulls. Since 2001, no AFC East team has finished with a better record. Teams only occasionally have won the division on tiebreakers, but that's as good as life has been within the division since Tom Brady became Bill Belichick's starting quarterback. Here th…

Tom Brady hasn't been standard Tom Brady recently. While the future first-ballot Hall of Famer has been the ultimate criticism-silencer in his career, I'm not insinuating he's "done" or anything of that nature. Just simply stating a trend based in fact. In his last three games, Brady has passer ratings of 82.4 (at Bills), 59.5 (at Dolphins), and 87.6 (at Steelers)…

Tre’Davious White is upset about not making the Pro Bowl. Any anger the Buffalo Bills’ rookie cornerback had for Rob Gronkowski, however, has been pushed aside. “Just getting over it, man,” White said following practice Wednesday. “That week of, you know, it was just still lingering on me. As I got a chance to think about it man, that was just childish. It was childi…
