Bills

The Bills' defense turned in a performance it can be proud of during Monday night's game against the Patriots. The Bills held Tom Brady's offense to 18 points on national television. But the Bills' offense was nonexistent once again, managing to score six points on field goals while giving up seven on an interception returned for a touchdown. The Bills lost, 25-6, an…

Bills running back LeSean McCoy suffered a concussion early in last week's loss to the Colts. But he returned to practice in a limited function Thursday, giving him a chance to play Monday night against the Patriots. McCoy remains in concussion protocol. He status should be monitored throughout the week. If he can't go, Chris Ivory would start. Starting quarterback D…

The Denver Broncos waived quarterback Chad Kelly on Wednesday, a day after he was arrested and charged with first-degree criminal trespassing. With less than four years of accrued service, the St. Joe's product will hit waivers and can be claimed by any team. Is the Bills' quarterback situation bad enough that they should think about claiming him? Your first thought …

Bills

Cornerback Tre'Davious White has been one of the lone bright spots for the Bills this season, building on a strong rookie campaign by performing well against the opponent's top receiver each week. How does he stack up against the best cornerbacks in the NFL? In an article Tuesday breaking down the Bills' young players, Pro Football Focus senior analyst Billy Moy wrot…

Kyle Williams is beloved in Buffalo – and a story he shared this week highlights exactly why. Williams believes he could've made more money signing with a different team last spring. But when he thought about it, he decided that he's a Buffalo Bill at heart. And changing who he is for an extra $1 million wasn't a trade he could live with. So the Bills' defensive stal…

A new face was added to the Bills' lackluster receiving corps Thursday when Cam Phillips was promoted from the practice squad to the 53-man roster. He took the place of Robert Foster, who was released to make room. Foster had two catches for 30 yards this season on nine targets and was credited with one drop. Adding Phillips essentially swapped one undrafted rookie f…

Even Sean McDermott couldn't fathom handing Nathan Peterman another start. The Bills on Wednesday named Derek Anderson their starting quarterback, just eight days after signing him off the street. Anderson's attention has been focused on his three young children since the Panthers were eliminated from the playoffs last season, but a week ago he added mentoring Bills roo…

Bills

It was hard to watch Nathan Peterman's latest collapse. On a basic human level, I feel bad for the guy. The Bills keep asking him to do something he just can't do. The results are humiliating, but less unexpected each time. Yet, starting Peterman is still a consideration this week. That incredible circumstance is thanks to both Josh Allen's elbow injury and a chronic la…

Bills

Former Chargers team doctor David J. Chao, who is better known as @ProFootballDoc on Twitter, said Monday night that he believes Bills' rookie quarterback Josh Allen has an ulnar collateral ligament sprain that could keep him out into November. Allen injured his right, throwing elbow in Sunday's loss to the Texans. Coach Sean McDermott described Allen as "week-to-week" …

Former Bills defensive end Marcellus Wiley spoke with Vic Carucci for this week's "One-on-One Coverage," and it didn't take long for the Doug Flutie-Rob Johnson debate to be rekindled. "This is no shot at Rob, but Doug would have won that game for us," Wiley said. "It’s just that simple." This of course refers to the Bills' wild-card game against the Titans on Jan. 8…

Bills

Bills' No. 1 cornerback Tre'Davious White was limited in practice for the second straight day on Thursday due to an ankle injury. White's availability for Sunday's game against the Texans doesn't appear to be in jeopardy just yet, but it's certainly a situation worth monitoring considering how valuable White is to the Bills' defense – and how much they're going to need …

Bills

Bills coach Sean McDermott opened his Wednesday press conference by addressing a news report about his team, which was unusual for a man who generally tries to reveal as little as possible in front of the cameras. But this was a report about running back LeSean McCoy, the team's best (and only) offensive weapon. WIVB-TV's Josh Reed reported Tuesday that the Eagles had i…

Bills

The Bills officially signed quarterback Derek Anderson on Tuesday, giving rookie Josh Allen a veteran brain to pick. Anderson hasn't played much in recent years, starting as many games as Allen since Allen's 15th birthday, but he has thrown for more than 10,000 yards in a 12-year career. Anderson served as Carolina's backup QB/mentor to Cam Newton when Bills coach Sean …

Bills

The Bills' much-improved run defense is giving up less than 100 yards per game this season. Defenders credited the addition of defensive tackle Star Lotulelei as a key factor. “He's been incredible,” defensive end Jerry Hughes said. “Somebody big who can command double teams. He's not getting knocked off the ball. He's working that double team. Any time you have someone…

Bills

The Bills haven't scored in their last 1 hour, 36 minutes and 16 seconds of football. They hope to end that steak shortly after Sunday's 1 p.m. kickoff against the Titans. Jay Skurski's pregame primer will get you ready for the game, counting down five storylines to watch. Establishing the run seems to be an emphasis this week. Titans quarterback Marcus Mariotta miss…
