The call made to overturn Kelvin Benjamin's potential touchdown in the second quarter was the talk among Bills players and fans. It also resonated with the defensive back who was playing Benjamin -- former Bills cornerback Stephon Gilmore. “He had to make a great catch and get his feet down," Gilmore said. "I figured he didn’t get his feet down because he was so close t…

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – Years later, this just might be remembered as the “Kelvin Benjamin Game.” Of course, that’s not a good thing for the Buffalo Bills, who fell to 8-7 on the season with a 37-16 loss to the New England Patriots on Sunday at Gillette Stadium. The enduring play from the game will undoubtedly be Benjamin’s touchdown catch in the second quarter. Or, non-…

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – Tre’Davious White said the message was simple: Don’t do anything to hurt the team. With significant hype about what might happen in the first meeting with the New England Patriots since Rob Gronkowski’s cheap shot against the Buffalo Bills’ rookie cornerback, the answer was simple: Not much. Gronkowski finished with 67 yards on five catches and on…

Coach Sean McDermott talked about the need to be able to score touchdowns when in the red zone, about still being in the playoff hunt and about Kelvin Benjamin's touchdown that was overturned. https://buffalonews.com/2017/12/24/what-they-said-mcdermott-benjamin-hughes-taylor-mccoy-on-officiating-playoffs-and-more/ https://youtu.be/52sTUll-ViY

Grading the Bills RUNNING GAME: C LeSean McCoy must feel like the weight of the world is on his shoulders. He finished with 71 yards on 17 carries, but if he’s not in the game, the Bills’ rushing attack is nonexistent. How Mike Tolbert still has a job in the NFL is beyond me. He carried the ball three times for minus-3 yards. Travaris Cadet suffered a broken ankle, w…

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – Bills defensive end Jerry Hughes didn't hold back Sunday when discussing the officiating during his team's 37-16 loss to the New England Patriots. "They get a couple calls, they get some momentum behind them. We've got to answer back. We've got to understand that for us, on that fourth and 1, we stopped them, but if the refs see something differently…

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – Here are my 10 observations from the Buffalo Bills’ 37-16 loss to the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium. 1. The NFL should be embarrassed about its absolutely baffling rules regarding what is, or isn’t, a catch. Bills receiver Kelvin Benjamin should have been credited with a 4-yard touchdown catch at the end of the second quarter. Anyone who w…

FOXBOROUGH, Mass.  – The Buffalo Bills will be without starting cornerback E.J. Gaines on Sunday against the New England Patriots. Gaines, who was questionable for the game with a knee injury, went through a lengthy on-field workout with strength and conditioning coach Eric Ciano on Sunday morning, but will miss his fifth game of the year. Shareece Wright is expected to…

BOSTON – The out-of-town scoreboard will be just as important for the Buffalo Bills on Sunday as their result in New England. With Baltimore having won Saturday night, the biggest game remaining on the Week 16 schedule for the Bills involves the Chargers and Jets. A loss by Los Angeles would mean the Bills would go to Week 17 needing a win against Miami and a loss by ei…

Cornerback E.J. Gaines returned to practice on a limited basis Thursday. Gaines, who left the Week 15 win over Miami with a knee injury, sat out Wednesday’s practice. “He did some things,” coach Sean McDermott said, adding that Gaines was able to participate in part of team drills. “You know, we'll see how he comes back tomorrow.” Wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin, who i…

Jordan Poyer knew what was coming. As the Buffalo Bills’ safety prepared for the Miami Dolphins and quarterback Jay Cutler, he filled his teammates in on what to expect. “He threw out a stat in front of all the DBs,” fellow safety Micah Hyde said of Poyer. “When Jay Cutler throws a pick in a game, he throws multiple ones. “After the first one, we knew more were co…

Kelvin Benjamin will have surgery after the season to clean up a torn meniscus in his right knee. The Buffalo Bills’ No. 1 receiver revealed that Sunday after his team’s 24-16 victory over the Miami Dolphins at New Era Field. Benjamin suffered the injury Nov. 19 against the Los Angeles Chargers and missed the next two games. He returned in Week 14 against the Indiana…

Grading the Bills RUNNING GAME: B- It felt like the Buffalo Bills rushed for more than they actually did. LeSean McCoy got the 39 yards he needed to reach 10,000 career rushing yards, finishing with 50 yards on 20 carries. That career achievement overshadowed what was a tough day for Shady. Tyrod Taylor ran better than he has in weeks. His 42 rushing yards are the mo…

People can argue all they want about whether or not the Bills are for real, whether they’re the team that started 5-2 or the one that lost four of five or something in between, but everyone could agree on this and perhaps only this: It has been a weirdly entertaining football season in Buffalo. Let's remember that the Bills were a borderline penalty on a two-point conve…
