The Bills enter the bye week in a three-way tie with the Jets and Patriots for first place, but will come out of it trailing by a half-game, as New York will host New England on Sunday — the winner will take the division lead. With no game to prepare for this weekend and no historical stats to uncover for the Buffalo Bills’ upcoming matchup, let’s instead take a l…

The Bills had three fourth-quarter drives Sunday on which they could've taken the lead. The results were not inspiring. The Bills punted before reaching midfield on their first possession. The offense was gifted a drive start on the Bengals' 12-yard on the second possession but only gained 2 yards and had to settle for a short field goal. Tyrod Taylor airmailed Zay Jone…

Tyrod Taylor had his worst performance thus far in the 2017 season against the Bengals in Week Five. In fact, it probably was his worst game as an NFL starter. The Bills quarterback had a yards-per-attempt average of just 4.45, the lowest YPA he's had in a single game during his time in Buffalo. Before the sloppy effort in the rain, Taylor had a YPA under 5.0 in two of…

The Buffalo Bills offense had a rather ineffective outing against the Bengals in Week Five. Let's examine what went wrong and pinpoint the biggest culprits in the loss. Sacks and dropped passes were the main reasons Buffalo's offense sputtered in Cincinnati, especially in the second half. Pro Football Focus credited Bills pass-catchers with five drops (LeSean McCoy, …

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…

It's unrealistic to expect the Buffalo Bills to get above-average play from their no-name, banged-up receiving corps. Given that handicap, it's near impossible for the Bills to win if they can't get above-average play from either the offensive line or the quarterback in any given game. In losing to the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday, the Bills' got below-average play from…

TYROD TAYLOR The passing game, once tight end Charles Clay went out, it just never got on track today. How tough was it to not have him out there? “It was definitely tough, but we didn’t make enough plays on offense (to win). I’ll take full responsibility for that one. It just wasn’t a great offensive performance. We had a bunch of opportunities and left some p…

Don't blame Tyrod Taylor for Sunday's loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. No, he wasn't perfect. But the Buffalo Bills could be 5-0 if they had better receivers, or maybe if they used them at all. The Bills are in better shape than we expected. They enter their bye week tied atop the AFC East at 3-2, same as the New England Patriots and New York Jets. They hung tough …

CINCINNATI – Tyrod Taylor neatly summarized the Buffalo Bills’ offensive performance Sunday. “The offense didn’t play the way we needed to win against a very good defense,” Taylor said after a 20-16 loss at soggy Paul Brown Stadium. “I’ll take full responsibility for that.” Taylor’s numbers weren’t pretty – 20 of 37 for 166 yards, one touchdown …

Forcing turnovers and preventing the big play have been the trademarks of the Buffalo Bills' defense this season. The Bills again played take-away Sunday but couldn't prevent two difference-making long-gainers in their 20-16 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. Buffalo was one of only three NFL teams that had not allowed a pass play of 40 or more yards through the first f…

When the Buffalo Bills started the season 3-1 and an undefeated record in the AFC, many fans wondered, "So what's the catch?" On Sunday, they were asking, "Where are the catches?" The Cincinnati Bengals handled the Bills' threadbare offense and won, 20-16, in Paul Brown Stadium. The Bills' defense was dynamite with three takeaways, but Tyrod Taylor didn't have eno…
