Khalil Mack possessed traits that enraptured NFL scouts. Yeah, but could he fit into any defensive scheme? Mack was a hellacious pass-rusher for the University at Buffalo, dominating the Mid-American Conference and amassing school records. Yeah, but how would he stack up against pedigreed competition? He would erupt from his stance, use uncanny leverage skills …

Strange, this Buffalo Bills season. A month before the season began, after the Sammy Watkins and Ronald Darby trades, general manager Brandon Beane found himself answering questions about throwing in the towel on 2017. Buffalo fans still sporting argument scars over the 2014-15 Sabres broke out their old debate points for this year's Bills. What we've learned the …

Former NFL official Jim Daopoulos was surprised as anyone when he saw Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct in the Buffalo Bills’ 26-16 victory Sunday. Daopoulos, who spent 11 years as an on-field official and 12 as a supervisor and now works for ESPN, told The News on Monday that the call was an “overreaction.” Miller was pen…

BILLS-BRONCOS MATCHUP WINNERS Bills O-line vs. Von Miller The premier pass-rusher in the NFL had a huge impact on the game. But he did not ruin the Bills' offense. Miller beat rookie left tackle Dion Dawkins for a sack on the first drive of the game. He beat right tackle Jordan Mills with a spin move and drew a holding penalty in the third quarter. He drew a chintzy …

A questionable unsportsmanlike conduct penalty against Broncos all-pro edge rusher Von Miller gave the Bills three big points late in the fourth quarter of Sunday's game at New Era Field. Miller was penalized for sticking out a hand to help up Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor and then pulling it away. It was right in front of the referee, but it was somewhat of a surprise…

The Buffalo Bills host the Denver Broncos in a Week Three outing that's the second-straight game with many of familiar faces squaring off against each other. Rick Dennison was the Broncos offensive coordinator over the past two seasons, so he certainly knows Trevor Siemian, Demaryius Thomas, and Emmanuel Sanders very well. Let's assess some critical one-on-one matchu…

Mark Gaughan’s Matchup Watch: Broncos at Bills Von Miller vs. Jordan Mills: Miller is the key matchup in every Denver game, and it won’t likely be one-on-one much of the time. The Bills will have to use a tight end and/or running back to help keep Miller off Tyrod Taylor. Denver will use blitzes to make it harder for the Bills to lock onto No. 58. Miller’s speed a…

Before the Denver Broncos head to New Era Field for their first road trip of the season, let's run through some pertinent advanced statistics. Like he did a season ago, Trevor Siemian has started hot. He threw four touchdowns a week ago in Denver's romp over Dallas. And like he's done his entire career, Von Miller has been a hyperproductive edge-rusher. He has two sa…

Mark Gaughan's Big-Play Breakdown: Von Miller's Wide 9 rush The most famous of Von Miller's 82 career sacks (counting playoffs) was his strip-sack of Cam Newton (1) in Super Bowl 50 that produced a Denver touchdown. What makes Miller's speed rush so devastating is his ability to dip his inside shoulder low to the ground like a speed skater, which gives the offensive tac…

LISBON, Portugal -- For much of my Monday evening, I walked around Bairro Alto for a place to watch the Buffalo Bills play the Seattle Seahawks. The locals treated me like I was subhuman. Futebol Americano? Nao aqui! Given the state of the game these days, that sentiment was understandable. But, while in Lisbon to moderate and emcee sports panels at the 2016 Web …

NAPA, Calif. – Khalil Mack wanted nothing to do with this story. He refused to be interviewed for it. Sandy Mack, his father, at first liked the idea of meeting me down in Fort Pierce, Fla., where Khalil is from. Then Sandy stopped returning text messages and voicemails. Khalil Mack gave the impression he’d rather shower with asbestos bodywash and stir three t…
