The Buffalo Bills don't quite control their own destiny, but they could get there this weekend. A victory Sunday over the New England Patriots would easily be the biggest of the team's 17-year playoff drought, although it wouldn't clinch the Bills a playoff spot even if everything else shakes out their way. Still, it would set up a thrilling final week of the regular se…

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…

Cornerback E.J. Gaines returned to practice on a limited basis Thursday. Gaines, who left the Week 15 win over Miami with a knee injury, sat out Wednesday’s practice. “He did some things,” coach Sean McDermott said, adding that Gaines was able to participate in part of team drills. “You know, we'll see how he comes back tomorrow.” Wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin, who i…

Analysis

When the Bills run: LeSean McCoy’s career milestone of reaching 10,000 yards last week masked what was an otherwise tough day. He was held to 50 yards on 20 carries against the Dolphins. The Bills are still having too many negative plays in the run game, with 26 percent of their attempts being stopped at or behind the line of scrimmage. That ranks 29th in the NFL, accordin…

The Buffalo Bills will be at full strength at quarterback Sunday against the New England Patriots. Coach Sean McDermott said Monday that starter Tyrod Taylor came through the Week 15 win against the Miami Dolphins fine physically. Rookie backup Nathan Peterman, meanwhile, has passed the NFL’s concussion protocol and is expected to practice Wednesday when the Bills begin…

The Buffalo Bills haven’t missed defensive end Shaq Lawson. Depending on if you’re a glass half-empty or half-full kind of person, that can be taken one of two ways. The pessimistic point of view is that Lawson did not produce the way a first-round draft pick is counted on to. The optimistic view is that his replacements, Ryan Davis and Eddie Yarbrough, have capably …

Opening Statement: Okay good afternoon. We’ll go ahead and get started. Q: Can you give an update on E.J. Gaines please? A: Yes, [he’s] still in evaluation. We won’t know anymore, right now until a couple days from now. Maybe, a little bit more tomorrow. Q: How much time, if any, do you spend on one-bazillion playoff scenarios that are out there? It’s mind blowing…

Maybe Bills fans should be thankful Nathan Peterman wasn't available to be Sunday's quarterback. That's one more variable playoff-hopefuls could have done without. Bills coach Sean McDermott indicated his preference for Peterman a few weeks ago by benching a healthy Tyrod Taylor, but Peterman had been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins because of …

Maynard Bunn is not a name familiar to most Bills fans, but his face might be one they recognize. Bunn, 79, is a ticket taker stationed outside Gate 7 at New Era Field. He was honored last week for becoming the first employee ever to work 50 years for the team. “That’s pretty special,” said Andy Major, the team’s vice president of operations and guest experience. “He…

Sean McDermott wanted the Buffalo Bills to get in a groove from the start of his first practice. Impressed by a performance from Amilcar “DJ Milk” Hill during McDermott’s welcoming party at (716) Food and Sport, the coach invited Hill and his turntable teammate, Yusef “DJ Yes” Jackson, to participate in the team’s opening minicamp. Bills practices became regular gigs for…

The Buffalo Bills find themselves in an interesting situation. The quarterback they felt wasn't good enough is now needed to keep the team's postseason hopes alive. Tyrod Taylor will start Sunday against the Miami Dolphins after practicing fully this week following a one-game absence because of a knee injury. The next three weeks will be the biggest of Taylor's caree…

Bills wide receiver Jordan Matthews announced via Twitter on Thursday that he had a pair of surgeries to repair his left knee and right ankle. So was that his decision, or one made by the team? "I think it’s a combination of both," coach Sean McDermott said Friday. "You know, you watch Jordan over the season. He’s toughed it out at times, being out there not really a…
