Jaguars left tackle Cam Robinson, who was limited in Wednesday's practice with an abdomen injury returned to the field on Thursday and was a full participant. Fellow Jacksonville lineman Brandon Linder was a new add to the injury report, as he was limited with a shoulder injury. Linder finished the regular season as Pro Football Focus' sixth-highest graded center. Backu…

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 …

The regular-season finale marked the third-consecutive game in which Tyrod Taylor averaged more than 7.0 yards per attempt, an efficiency benchmark for quarterbacks in the NFL. He finished the contest in Miami 19 of 27 for 204 yards (7.56 yards per attempt) with one touchdown and no interceptions, which equated to a passer rating of 104.6. After his highest yards-per-at…

Pro Football Focus released its All-Pro team for the 2017 season, and Bills rookie cornerback Tre'Davious White was listed on the Second Team. White was one of two rookies to make either first or second team — Saints running back Alvin Kamara was the other. Chargers cornerback Casey Hayward and Jaguars second-year corner Jalen Ramsey were PFF's two First-Teamers at t…

Jaguars owner Shad Khan has made a kind gesture ahead of the team's playoff matchup against the Bills on Sunday. He's donated 1,000 total tickets to refugees who've settled in Northwest Florida and displaced citizens from Puerto Rico. From the Jaguars' official press release (via Jordan Ferrell): "Shad Khan and the Jaguars Foundation have donated 500 tickets to Su…

Tre'Davious White deserves the attention he's currently receiving following a standout rookie season for the Bills at the cornerback position. But his secondary mate, E.J. Gaines, pieced together a fine campaign of his own and put an exclamation mark on it against the Dolphins in Miami. The fourth-year cornerback out of Missouri received an overall Pro Football Focus gr…

Bills

Tre'Davious White was surprisingly "giving" to Dolphins wideouts in Week 17, but he was stout in run-support and reliable as a tackler to cap a spectacular regular season as a rookie in the NFL. White allowed all four targets in his coverage area to be caught for 45 yards, which equated to a passer rating of 113.5. It marked the only game in 2017 in which White surrende…

Bills

LeSean McCoy left the Bills' regular-season finale win over the Dolphins with an ankle injury, at a time when he had rushed for just 10 yards on 11 carries, which continued his struggles in Miami during his time with Buffalo. McCoy did a lot with not much help up front, as 11 yards came after contact, meaning he gained -1 yards before contact in Week 17. Pro Football Fo…

Bills

In a must-win game against the Dolphins in Week 17, Jerry Hughes busted out of his slump. Through the first six games of 2017, he registered 28 quarterback pressures (three sacks, seven hits, 18 hurries) on 190 pass-rushing snaps. In his next nine contests, leading into the regular-season finale, he generated just 10 quarterback pressures (one sack, two hits, seven hurr…

Bills

Tyrod Taylor was effective in the first half but cooled off in the second half — especially in the fourth quarter — against the Patriots in Week 16. He completed 2 of 5 passes made 20 or more yards down the field for 79 yards. He missed on both of his attempts over the middle in the 10 to 19-yard range. From the line of scrimmage to 19 yards down the field, Taylor we…

Bills

Tyrod Taylor and the Bills played the Patriots tightly for three quarters in Week 16, and much of that had to do with fine inside-the-pocket passing from Buffalo's quarterback. In New England, Taylor completed 18 of 30 passes (60 percent) from inside the pocket for 257 yards (8.56 yards per attempt). That equates to a passer rating of 87.7. While he's had higher insi…

Parity is a perpetual theme in the NFL. New teams in the playoffs each season is one of the main reasons that parity is discussed at length every year. Starting with the 1990 season, at least five teams have made the postseason that didn't advance to the playoffs the previous season. The Bills have a chance to be part of history on Sunday if they earn a postseason-be…

Bills

Acquired before Week 9, Kelvin Benjamin had only played 45 snaps for the Bills heading into Week 14's matchup with the Colts. Of course, that game featured snow of epic proportions, which limited offensive production, but it was that contest in which Benjamin settled into his role as one of Buffalo's primary targets. He's played 130 snaps over the past three weeks an…

The life of an NFL GM during the season often involves numerous trips to college games to scout draft prospects. Bills GM Brandon Beane and assistant GM Joe Schoen are reportedly at Thursday's Camping World Bowl in Orlando between Oklahoma State and Virginia Tech. Quarterback Mason Rudolph and wide receivers James Washington and Marcell Ateman are the headliners, all…
