Bills

Now that the Dolphins successfully passed the "Tank For Tua" bowl, it’s on to Buffalo where the Bills are one of only two AFC teams without two losses this season (guess the other). Two questions immediately come to the surface in this contest: 1) are the Bills really this good? and 2) are the Dolphins really this bad? The answers to both are not really, but don’t try s…

Bills Mafia can show up in the most unlikely places. In September, local harness owner Jim Reuther and his trainer Steve Schoeffel made an innocuous $8,000 purchase of a filly pacer at the Goshen Standardbred sale in Middletown. Little did Reuther know at the time that the filly might have a bigger following than would be expected. Reuther has plans to rename Bee Tru…

The Bills Mafia invaded Smashville on Sunday and witnessed a titanic, ice-breaking win by their beloved Bills. The victory separated Buffalo from Tennessee in the premature playoff race, and steered the Bills to a 4-1 record; now tied for second in the AFC.  Improbable hero Duke Williams came out of obscurity and off the practice squad to the delight of his legion of sy…

The Titans are 2-2, but they have allowed more yards than they've gained in three games. The Bills are 3-1 and have not been out-gained in total yardage in a game this season; the Bills are averaging 106 yards per game more than the opposition. On paper, it appears the wrong team is favored here with the line sitting at the Titans by three. Tennessee is 3-12 against the…

The Buffalo Bills went head-to-head against the New England Patriots on Sunday, tête-à-tête between two headstrong coaches and were ultimately knocked out by a fierce fourth-quarter helmet-to-helmet hit. Let’s get the crud out early. Josh Allen threw three interceptions, two of which were horrible ideas and passes, and one just horrendous pass. A special teams snafu com…

Let’s not concede the Patriots another Super Bowl title just yet. Yes, their stats are impeccable: No. 1 overall in scoring defense and the No. 2 scoring offense. They became the first team in the Super Bowl era to not allow a passing or rushing TD in its first three games. A muffed punt recovered in the end zone by the Jets snapped the Pats’ run of 86 consecutive point…

Members of The News' sports staff will be picking games on BNblitz.com. Here is how Jay Skurski, Mark Gaughan and Jason Wolf see the slate for Week 4, beginning with the Thursday night game (point spreads are through Thursday morning; asterisk indicates best bet): THURSDAY Skurski Gaughan Wolf at Packers -4 Eagles Eagles Packers Packers SUNDAY …

The guy has got game, especially when the game is on the line. Bills quarterback Josh Allen has five comeback victories in 13 starts he has completed. And on many plays, that game is Madden. Allen’s highlight plays, using his Gumby legs and arm, are often hard to believe on second and third viewings even when you know exactly what happened already. It is the seemingl…

Eric Bish and Angela Collins met at the Bills’ home opener in 2016. Their first date was 10 days later for the Bills’ game against the Cardinals. They have gone to every game together since for the last three years. So when it was time to pop the question, Bish knew it had to be at a Bills game. In June, he decided that he was going to propose to Collins at the home …

The planning happened in a fitting way. Ken Johnson traveled to Dallas in May for the funeral of his longtime friend, Ezra Castro. Afterward, Johnson stopped at a hotel bar for a few beers with fellow members of the #BillsMafia, and Castro’s brother Jaime came over to say thanks and to offer a request. This was not the kind of thing you plan by PowerPoint. Jaime explain…

Tasked with playing their second consecutive game at MetLife Stadium, the Buffalo Bills stayed in the same hotel last week – with players lodged in the very same rooms – to mimic the lead-up to their opening week 17-16 comeback win over the New York Jets. They proceeded to trounce the Giants, 28-14, to improve to 2-0 for the first time since 2014. On the other side of t…

The price for tickets to Sunday’s Bills’ home opener against the Cincinnati Bengals continues to rise as the game gets closer. According to TickPick, a secondary ticket marketplace, the average price for a remaining ticket is $131.24. While that is substantially less than the NFL average for Week 3 games of $201.49, it would be the most ­­­expensive ticket for a Bill…

Josh Allen was not given the key to the city of Buffalo; Josh Allen has the key to the city. Drafted seventh overall in 2018, Allen just showed up with it the next day. The Bills quarterback seems to be the embodiment, correct button pusher, and possess most all of the qualities we want in our sports stars: blue collar and red-blooded; gifted and gutsy; a high-flying un…

The New York Giants went ahead 7-0 on the Dallas Cowboys in Week 1 and then proceeded to limp to the finish line. One has to wonder how long before Daniel Jones will have his number called. This, however, is for certain: Eli Manning is 11-3  straight up and 10-2-2 against the spread in his career against AFC East opposition, including 7-0-1 against the spread as an underdo…
