Jon Bon Jovi wouldn't have moved the Buffalo Bills, was going to buy a home in Western New York and pretty much would abandon his music career, but instead he slipped into a depression partly because he failed to buy the team in 2014.

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.

The Bisons finished 21 games out of first place. None of the Big Four basketball programs made the NCAA To…

When former Buffalo Bills coach and current ESPN analyst Rex Ryan was asked Wednesday for his thoughts on the New York Giants benching quarterback Eli Manning, Ryan responded that it felt similar to the end of last season, when he was "told" to bench quarterback Tyrod Taylor.

What do Matt Moulson and Ville Leino have in common? They are in the running for worst Buffalo Sabres contract since Terry Pegula became owner. As fans know and Pegula's accountants can attest, a ridiculous amount of money has been wasted in Sabreland since 2011. The long and inglorious contract list features Moulson and the bought-out trio of Leino, Cody Hodgson and…

Connor McDavid is already wearing the "C" in Edmonton. In Toronto, the Leafs are going without a captain this season so they can clearly anoint Auston Matthews to the role next year. It sounds like the same thing is going on in Buffalo. There are always several leaders on any hockey team and it's easy to wonder if we make too much over who the actual captain is. That gu…

General Manager Jason Botterill confirmed Wednesday afternoon that the Buffalo Sabres will not have a captain at the start of the season. And like the Toronto Maple Leafs, it's possible they might go all season without one. So be it. After handing out $80 million of Terry Pegula's money, Botterill knows Jack Eichel is the captain of this team -- whether he has the lette…
