JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Kyle Williams has not made any decision regarding his playing future. The Buffalo Bills' veteran defensive tackle accomplished a career goal by playing in his first postseason game Sunday, and the sting of a 10-3 loss overshadowed any talk about his future. Williams' contract will expire in March, and it's still to be determined if he wants to retur…

The Buffalo Bills had five possessions in the second half and could not get into scoring position once. That was the reason for their 10-3 playoff loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. Tyrod Taylor's limitations at quarterback were on display on the Bills' best second-half scoring chance, and that leads our 10 plays that shaped the game. 1. QB shortcomings. The Bills …

Grading the Bills RUNNING GAME: B LeSean McCoy gutted through an ankle injury to rush 19 times for 75 yards. He’s tough on top of being talented. Quarterback Tyrod Taylor gained 27 yards on seven carries, the last of which left him with a concussion when his head slammed to the turf after a 2-yard scramble on the Bills’ final drive. Backup running back Mike Tolbert r…

Buffalo Bills coach Sean McDermott ended his first season with the organization in a 10-3 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars in an AFC Wild-Card Game. “It hurts right now but I’m extremely proud of our team," he said afterward.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – My observations from the Bills’ 10-3 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars that eliminated the team from the AFC playoffs. 1. Tyrod Taylor got outplayed by Blake Bortles. That’s a tough thing for Bills fans to read, but it’s true. With the Bills needing their quarterback to make a play, it never came. The penultimate chance for the offense started with 3…

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…

Phil Simms, who played quarterback for the New York football Giants for 14 seasons, thinks Tyrod Taylor’s critics are too harsh. Simms this year transitioned from game broadcaster to being a studio analyst with “The NFL Today,” the CBS pregame show.

Tyrod Taylor helped orchestrate the Bills' berth in the playoffs, and to some, he was a hindrance on Buffalo's offense. To others, he was effective in his role as the team's low-volume quarterterback. Here are Taylor's regular-season finishes in an assortment of advanced statistics and their rank among qualifying quarterbacks: Pro Football Focus Overall Grade: 84.1 …

A question that gets asked almost every week of the coach of the Bills' opponent is, how do you defend Tyrod Taylor, a quarterback who can scramble and extend plays? When the question was asked this week of Jaguars coach Doug Marrone, he gave a more colorful answer than he is usually known for and started by sharing a conversation he had with his wife the previous night…

Opening Statement: Okay, good morning. Good afternoon, I guess I should say. Happy New Year. Good way to get the year started and we’ll go ahead and open it up to questions. Q: How much sleep did you get last night? A: A little bit. I know quite a few members the staff were in early this morning. [It’s] kind of hard to throttle down after an evening like that, but [i…

ORLANDO – It wasn't a dream, Bills fans. The 17-year playoff drought is over. Buffalo's 22-16 win over the Miami Dolphins on Sunday improved the team to 9-7, but it wasn't until the Cincinnati Bengals beat the Baltimore Ravens about 30 minutes later that the Bills' postseason ticket was punched. A crowd numbering in the hundreds greeted the Bills' charter flight when it…

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…
