JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Like a TV dad that walks into the kitchen to confab with his family about the coming day, Doug Marrone casually took his place behind the lectern for Thursday's news conference with a ceramic coffee mug that read #ForeverTeal. In a baggy Jacksonville Jaguars sweatshirt, he answered questions about Sunday's playoff game against the Buffalo Bills at E…

This is not meant to be a complaint, but rather a humorous story to start your Saturday morning. My flight to Jacksonville on Friday night was delayed a couple hours in Detroit. No big deal. It happens this time of year with air travel in the Northeast, and it could have been a lot worse with what people in New York and Boston are going through. Once we did get on th…

A Buffalo Bills victory wasn't enough. Not only did they have to beat the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, but the Bills also needed help from at least one other team, maybe two, to end the longest active playoff skid in North American big-league sports. In addition, the Baltimore Ravens had to lose. If not that, then the Los Angeles Chargers and the Tennessee Titans had to…

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…

Tyrod Taylor was back on the practice field Thursday for the Buffalo Bills, participating in individual drills. Taylor did not take part in any of the team sessions, coach Sean McDermott said after practice, and remains "day to day" as he recovers from a left knee injury suffered Sunday against the New England Patriots. "He did some good things," McDermott said. "He …

Nothing excites the masses like a quarterback change. The switch from Tyrod Taylor to Nathan Peterman this week dominates the conversation when it comes to the Buffalo Bills. It also overshadows the fact the Bills’ defense has completely fallen on its face the last two weeks. That stretch last Sunday when the New Orleans Saints ran the ball 24 times in a row was as d…

Third and 9, ball at the Tampa Bay 32-yard line, 2 minutes remaining and the Buffalo Bills dial up a play for … Taiwan Jones? Yep, that happened Sunday. And guess what? It worked. Jones, the Bills’ third-string running back who hadn’t touched the ball offensively in the team’s first five games, took a shovel pass from Tyrod Taylor toward the left sideline, cut back i…

John Miller has gone from starter to backup to out of the lineup entirely over the last few weeks for the Buffalo Bills. Miller is a healthy inactive Sunday, when the Bills host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at New Era Field. That means Vlad Ducasse will start at right guard – and has won that competition. Also inactive for the Bills are: tight end Charles Clay (knee), li…

LeSean McCoy has never been five games into the start of a football season without yet finding the end zone. “Never. Even little league, I mean,” the Buffalo Bills’ star running back said Wednesday. “It’s something that I kind of just, you know, kind of going through weeks and days, I want to get going.” McCoy has had extra time to stew on his lack of productivity to…

1. Tight end Charles Clay had a knee scope performed Monday morning and will miss "multiple weeks," according to Buffalo Bills coach Sean McDermott. Clay was hurt in the first quarter of Sunday's 20-16 loss to Cincinnati when he was hit by Bengals safety Shawn Williams at the end of a 24-yard gain. Pro Football Talk reported Monday that Clay suffered a torn meniscus and…

Here's how Sean McDermott summed up the Buffalo Bills' performance through two preseason games Thursday night: "Well, I think there's been some good things that we've done," he said. "There's been some things that we need to continue to work on. We want to win games." That's something that hasn't happened. The Bills dropped to 0-2 in the preaseaon with Thursday's 20-…

"Slow your roll," some readers said. "Way too early," others claimed. "Give 'em time, for cryin' outs," I heard. My takeaway from the Buffalo Bills' preseason opener last week was their disconcerting penalty total. They committed 13 penalties. The Minnesota Vikings accepted 10 of them for 106 yards. All those flags irked Bills coach Sean McDermott, but many fan…
