Bills

As an entire team, the Bills played their worst game of the year on Thursday Night Football in Week 9 against the Jets, and Tyrod Taylor was under duress all evening. Despite being sacked seven times, and facing pressure on 21 of his 49 drop backs, the Bills quarterback pieced together a fine outing as a passer. While a portion of his statistics were accumulated wit…

Analysis

A staple in Rick Dennison's offense is the deep cross or "over" route after a play-action fake. We've seen Tyrod Taylor and multiple wide receivers connect on this play thus far in the 2017 season, and it's a relatively simple but effective route against a variety of coverages. First, let's look at the play from an offensive perspective. These are essentially the rou…

On Saturday, we took a look at just how good Tyrod Taylor has been by comparing his last three seasons to the last three seasons of 14-year veteran and future Hall of Famer, Ben Roethlisberger. I received a lot of feedback on this and, as with anything, some was positive and some was negative. But negative in the sense that some fans did not believe a comparison, showing …

Tyrod Taylor was written off as the Bills' quarterback of the future by many coming into 2017, and many still doubt his abilities under center. But there is a good bit of evidence, by the numbers, suggesting that Taylor may be undervalued and underappreciated. Two-time Super Bowl Champion and future Hall of Fame quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has been a staple and a key…

It was a night to forget for the Bills' offensive line at in the swampland of Northern New Jersey Thursday night. The Bills' line was dominated by the New York Jets' front seven in the 34-21 loss. Guard Vlad Ducasse was victimized on three of the Jets' seven sacks. Guard Richie Incognito was partly to blame as well on two of the sacks that Ducasse had a hand in. T…

New York Jets coach Todd Bowles blitzed the Buffalo Bills into submission Thursday night. The Jets rushed five men at Tyrod Taylor on 17 of the Bills' first 22 drop-backs. That's an amazing 77 percent. The Jets led the NFL last season with a blitz rate of 40.2 percent and were blitzing at 39 percent this season. The Jets got five of their seven sacks on blitzes in th…

BILLS COACH SEAN McDERMOTT On why Kelvin Benjamin wasn’t active… He really only had a short amount of time to get up to speed. The guys that did play put in time during the week and so we wanted to do things the right way as far as that goes. On if this was just one of those games… Yeah, you’re right. This is uncharacteristic of this team to date, the w…

Bills

The past three days were a roiling sea, crashing waves of pending doom against a breakwall of assumptions. Many of us chalked up a victory against the New York Jets, putting the Bills at 6-2 with a few extra days rest before next Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints at New Era Field. Many in the national media trumpeted the Bills as a playoff team. Yet a s…

Michael Irvin, onetime Buffalo Bills nemesis and current NFL Network analyst, wanted to know whether Buffalo was the real deal after the team got off to a 5-2 start. After the Bills’ dismal performance in Thursday night’s loss against the New York Jets, Irvin seems to have gotten his answer, based on his postgame analysis. “Buffalo was not [ready to play],” s…

Plenty of choices for The Big Number from penalties to sacks, but let's go with 63 — the Bills' total rushing yards. The Bills finished with 22 carries to get those 63 yards, an average of 2.9 yards per carry. Quarterback Tyrod Taylor was the Bills' leading rusher with 35 yards. LeSean McCoy, who has had some of his best games on Thursdays in his career, ran for…

That’s a version of the Buffalo Bills we haven’t seen this year – and fans surely don’t want to see again.

Last week, I debuted my study of Tyrod Taylor's passing from inside and outside the pocket in 2017. The initial results were a bit surprising, especially given the consensus thought that he struggles as a pocket passer. After a sound albeit unspectacular game against the Raiders in Week Eight, here are his updated figures. Inside the Pocket 108 completions, 159 at…

Marcell Dareus was traded to the Jaguars last week. He seemed a bit shaken up by the news when Tim Graham went to Jacksonville for his introductory press conference. On Wednesday, Dareus sent The News a goodbye letter to Bills fans. "Through the seven years I lived and played for you, and even through the tough times, I always felt your love, kindness and encourageme…

Against the Raiders, Tyrod Taylor had his second game of the 2017 season with a completion percentage over 70. He completed two of four passes for 58 yards on throws to the right beyond 20 yards, good for a passer rating of 95.8. Taylor misfired on both of his throws between 10 and 19 yards to the right, which equated to a rating of 39.6, his lowest at any location on t…
