For Bills fans, Super Bowl LII turned out to be a glorious, bountiful, smorgasbord of schadenfreude, watching the New England Patriots lose a heartbreaker to the high-flying underdog Philadelphia Eagles. Nick Foles played the foil and the game of his life; believing in unicorns, tossing up rainbows, witnessing his receivers defy gravity and making a series of miracle ca…

Roger Goodell asked Robert Mueller to conduct an independent investigation of the NFL 32 months before the Justice Department appointed Mueller to conduct an independent investigation of President Trump's connections to Russia. The NFL often borrows devices implemented by our political institutions. Its outgoing executive vice president of communications and public affa…

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has been a longtime Monday morning guest on Boston sports radio station WEEI and the "Kirk & Callahan" show. That relationship could be ending after Brady's 5-year-old daughter Vivian was called an "annoying little pissant" last week by another host on the station. WEEI said it suspended Alex Reimer on Friday for the remarks that came …

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Kyle Williams isn't the only player who will make his playoff debut after a long NFL career of suffering without. Jacksonville Jaguars linebacker Paul Posluszny also will see his first postseason action Sunday at Everbank Field. "That's what we do it for," Posluszny said, "just for a chance to go for a championship." Buffalo Bills fans quickly…

By now, serious Buffalo Bills fans can recite what their team must do Sunday to reach the playoffs. The Bills, of course must win. They also need games on each coast and in the middle of the country to fall their way and break any ties. "When you're in your last game and dependent on other people out of your control," Bills Wall of Famer Joe Ferguson said, "it's just…

It's the Cap Cappiest day of the year. Hey, Bills fans. Come over here and take a look inside this Christmas stocking for some goodies. Yule love them! (I hate myself.) Anyway, I've compiled a bunch of facts and stats to chew on while you celebrate Christmas and try to get over Sunday's 37-16 loss to the New England Patriots in Gillette Stadium. The Bills' play…

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…

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — The loss of Mike Gillislee hasn't hurt the Buffalo Bills nearly as much as fans expected. Yes, he likely would have offered an upgrade over Mike Tolbert when giving LeSean McCoy breathers throughout the season. But much of the fear emanated from the thought of Gillislee joining the New England Patriots and helping the Evil Empire continue to thriv…

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)…

If the New England Patriots are going to win the Super Bowl this season, it's going to require Tom Brady's heaviest lift ever. The current Patriots defense is worse than any of the defenses that helped Brady to his previous five Super Bowl rings. This isn't to say the New England defense is bad. It's respectable. New England stands sixth in the NFL in points allowed,…

New England has been running this play successfully since Tom Brady took over as quarterback in 2001. Randy Moss hit a variation of this play on the Buffalo Bills in 2007. First down. Running personnel. Two tight ends, two running backs. Maximum protection and just one receiver in the downfield pattern. Brady is a wonderful ball-handler and sells good play-action fakes. …

In every game against the Patriots, limiting Rob Gronkowski's production is a priority for the opposing defense. But just how vital is it? Probably more vital than you think. Check Tom Brady's splits when throwing and not throwing to Gronkowski this season: Brady's 2017 statistics throwing to Gronkowski: Targets: 98 Receptions: 64 Yards: 1,016 Yards Per At…

Not only did the Miami Dolphins beat the New England Patriots, Dolphins wide receiver Jarvis Landry added insult to injury. After his second touchdown Monday night, Landry made a motion as if he was trying to resuscitate the ball, but maybe not exactly. He appeared to be ... deflating the ball. And, well, you know about the Patriots and deflating. “I’m taking the …
