Bills

Halfway through the Bills’ season, we contacted panelists from our preseason Bills Media Roundtable for a midseason edition. Due to their other commitments covering the NFL, just four of our panelists were able to weigh in this time, but they constitute a sterling lineup: Judy Battista, columnist for NFL.com; Greg Bishop, senior writer for Sports Illustrated; Kevin Co…

Opening Statement: Injury report, just an update here. Will not practice today: Cordy Glenn, Zay Jones, and then also I wanted to add to the list, would be Seantrel Henderson. Cordy and Zay will be out for the game, and Seantrel will be listed as questionable. Limited today will be Charles Clay and E.J. [Gaines], and they both will be listed as questionable for the game. W…

It would have been easy for the Buffalo Bills to make an example out of Adolphus Washington. The second-year defensive tackle was arrested in his home state of Ohio back in July on a misdemeanor charge of improperly carrying a concealed firearm. With a new coaching staff that placed a big emphasis on character under Sean McDermott, the Bills could have simply cut Washi…

1. The Bills aren’t giving up hope on rookie receiver Zay Jones playing Sunday against the New Orleans Saints, but Thursday was not a step in the right direction. Jones missed his third practice of the week as he deals with an ankle injury suffered in Week 9 against the New York Jets. “He’s still day to day,” coach Sean McDermott said. “He’s made progress.…

Analysis

The Buffalo Bills have re-established New Era Field as a tough place to play for opponents. A perfect 4-0 record at home is a big reason the Bills are currently in a playoff position in the AFC. “It’s a special place to play,” coach Sean McDermott said. “It’s a place where our guys embrace playing at home. It’s a very comfortable situation for us that way…

Richie Incognito had a rough go of it last Thursday. The Buffalo Bills' left guard wasn't alone, either. The Bills' offensive line is coming off its worst showing of the season in a Week 9 loss to the New York Jets. Quarterback Tyrod Taylor was under constant duress, and was sacked nine times. Running back LeSean McCoy had nowhere to go, producing just 25 yards on the …

After the shellacking the Bills took against the Jets last Thursday, the team and its fans are regrouping and re-evaluating this most topsy-turvy NFL season. And on Election Day — because no one will actually be out voting — it seems like a good time to look at the progress of our local leaders and representatives.  COACHING Freshman Sen. Sean McDermott and new Gov.…

Bills

To say the Buffalo Bills lack offensive rhythm in the first quarter this season is putting it kindly. More accurately, they look like Elaine dancing on Seinfeld at the start of games.The Bills have managed just six total points in the first quarter through eight games — last in the NFL. Offensive coordinator Rick Dennison was asked Monday about what the problem ear…

COACH SEAN McDERMOTT Opening Statement: Alright, good morning. You guys are always so [talkative] in the morning. It’s good. Okay, go ahead and fire away. Q: Well, where does it stand with Zay Jones? A: Zay is, he’s not going to practice today but he’s day-to-day at this point. Q: Did they have a [measure] of the damage, or what did they tell you about it…

Bills

The Buffalo Bills returned to practice Monday to begin preparations for a home game against the New Orleans Saints. Zay Jones will not practice Monday and coach Sean McDermott said he is day to day with a knee injury suffered against the Jets. McDermott said Jones has made progress already and is "moving in the right direction." Charles Clay, who has been sideline…

1. The Buffalo Bills will be without running back Taiwan Jones for the rest of the season. Coach Sean McDermott announced Friday that Jones suffered a broken arm late in Thursday’s 34-21 loss to the New York Jets while attempting to recover an onside kick. Teammate Shamarko Thomas dove into Jones' arm, causing the fracture. Jones' arm was placed in an air cast and he …

Here is what Bills coach Sean McDermott had to say Friday, a day after the Bills' loss to the New York Jets.  Q: Update on Zay Jones? How’s he doing? A: Yeah, he’s still going through the evaluation right now, so that’s where it is right now. I know he did some, he’s walking around and everything so we’ll just see how that goes today. Q: Taiwan Jones? …

NEWARK, N.J. – And now, for my next feat of journalism magic, I will find a way to identify three positive performances to take away from that. Bills fans waking up Friday morning will be disappointed that wasn't just a nightmare. Their team really did get absolutely dominated on national television Thursday night, the 34-21 final against the New York Jets not coming …

BILLS COACH SEAN McDERMOTT On why Kelvin Benjamin wasn’t active… He really only had a short amount of time to get up to speed. The guys that did play put in time during the week and so we wanted to do things the right way as far as that goes. On if this was just one of those games… Yeah, you’re right. This is uncharacteristic of this team to date, the w…

Bills

The past three days were a roiling sea, crashing waves of pending doom against a breakwall of assumptions. Many of us chalked up a victory against the New York Jets, putting the Bills at 6-2 with a few extra days rest before next Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints at New Era Field. Many in the national media trumpeted the Bills as a playoff team. Yet a s…
