The winner will get the award at the NFL Honors event the night before the Super Bowl. After the first round, the Bills' Zay Jones and his light saber move wi…

The drought is dead. The Buffalo Bills finally ended a 17-year postseason dry spell, leading to mass celebrations, six-figure charitable donations and hope that, finally, the team is on the right path under the leadership of General Manager Brandon Beane and coach Sean McDermott. Before attention turns squarely to planning for 2018, though, here is one final look bac…

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Sunday's playoff game was there to be won, but the Buffalo Bills demonstrated they're not quite ready to challenge for anything more than our hearts just yet. Rookie head coach Sean McDermott and first-year General Manager Brandon Beane made progress in establishing a new Bills era. Now we get to watch them try to turn a plucky club into a true cont…

It’s a good thing Kyle Williams didn’t hear Zay Jones this week. If he did, the Buffalo Bills’ veteran defensive tackle’s red beard probably would have turned gray. “Yeah, man, I've never missed the playoffs!” Jones, the Bills’ rookie receiver, said with a smile at his locker. His comment wasn’t meant to minimize the 17-year playoff drought that fans have endured …

Members of the Jacksonville Jaguars’ secondary aren’t content simply beating opponents – they want them to hear about it, too. The Jaguars have developed a reputation as some of the biggest trash talkers in the NFL, something the Buffalo Bills’ receivers have caught wind of this week. “I've been hearing that,” Deonte Thompson said. “Talking's cheap. Talking ain't nev…

So it comes down to this for the Buffalo Bills. Beat the Miami Dolphins on Sunday and get some help around the league, and a 17-year playoff drought will be over. You know the scenarios by now, but once more here they are: A Buffalo win coupled with a loss by Baltimore against Cincinnati gets the Bills in the playoffs. The other path for the Bills includes beating Miami…

The Buffalo Bills don't quite control their own destiny, but they could get there this weekend. A victory Sunday over the New England Patriots would easily be the biggest of the team's 17-year playoff drought, although it wouldn't clinch the Bills a playoff spot even if everything else shakes out their way. Still, it would set up a thrilling final week of the regular se…

Analysis

When the Bills run: LeSean McCoy’s career milestone of reaching 10,000 yards last week masked what was an otherwise tough day. He was held to 50 yards on 20 carries against the Dolphins. The Bills are still having too many negative plays in the run game, with 26 percent of their attempts being stopped at or behind the line of scrimmage. That ranks 29th in the NFL, accordin…

The Buffalo Bills will play meaningful football for the entire 2017 season. Their 24-16 victory Sunday over the Miami Dolphins guaranteed that the Bills will be alive in the AFC playoff race through the final game of the year – when they will visit those same Dolphins in South Florida. Before that looms a trip to New England for the biggest game in ... well, a really lo…

Bills

It's a de facto elimination game for the Buffalo Bills and Miami Dolphins on Sunday. A 9-7 record will give either team a fighting chance at earning a playoff spot. The Bills could give the Dolphins their eighth loss, while a Buffalo loss would drop them to 7-7. With a looming visit to New England, however, a Buffalo loss would feel like the end of their chances. Her…

Quarterback Tyrod Taylor Q: So, you’re back. Feeling healthy? A: Yes, I’m feeling healthy. Just taking it day-by-day --- preparation for this weekend, so [I] feel good. Q: Were you close [to returning] last week? How close were you? A: It was close, but I think it was the right decision. Of course, the competitor in me, it’s tough to say that because I want to …

The Bills are already down one wide receiver for Sunday's game against Indianapolis. It's still up in the air whether they'll be down another. Kelvin Benjamin, inactive the past two weeks with a meniscus tear, participated in practice a day after teammate Jordan Matthews was placed on injured reserve. Benjamin was limited but was able to participate in some drills, incl…

RB LeSean McCoy Q: I’m not sure how many times you’ve gone up against Frank Gore, opposite side of the field, obviously. What’s it like to be at least going up against him – like caliber, a guy like that in what could be your last outing? A: Yeah, well I’m a big fan of Frank. We’re solid, first, so we’re pretty good. I’ve been watching him for a long time before the …
