The numbers don’t look good for the Buffalo Bills’ offensive line. The team’s quarterbacks have been sacked 11 times in two weeks, a figure that ranks as second most in the NFL behind only Seattle (12). It’s easy to point the finger at the beleaguered offensive line for that number, but it’s not entirely fair, according to offensive coordinator Brian Daboll. “Obvious…

Former Bills tight end Nick O'Leary has been signed to the Miami Dolphins' practice squad. O'Leary returns to his home area, where he starred for Dwyer High in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., before going to Florida State. O'Leary was a Bills' sixth-round draft choice in 2015 and played 35 games with 22 catches for 322 yards and two touchdowns. He was released in final cut…

LeSean McCoy spoke out Wednesday against allegations of child abuse made against him by the mother of his son, calling them "ridiculous." In an affidavit filed Tuesday in Fulton County (Georgia) court, Stephanie Maisonet — the mother of a 6-year-old boy with McCoy — sided with McCoy's ex-girlfriend, Delicia Cordon, in her lawsuit against the Buffalo Bills' running back.…

Analysis

When the Buffalo Bills run: LeSean McCoy had a 27-yard run, but was held to just 12 yards on his other eight carries against the Los Angeles Chargers. The running game being unable to pick up 4 or 5 yards at a time is putting the team behind the sticks in a big way. Overall, Buffalo ranks 25th in rushing through two weeks, averaging 83.5 yards per game. Quarterback Josh Al…

Sean McDermott provided more details Monday on why he decided to take over making the Buffalo Bills’ defensive play calls in Sunday’s game against the Los Angeles Chargers, but stopped short of saying whether the move would be permanent. Defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier “and I are still working through that,” McDermott said. “Either way, Leslie is going to be a big …

The Buffalo Bills’ defense looked like an entirely different unit in the second half Sunday. After getting smoked to the tune of 284 yards and 28 points in the first half of the home opener at New Era Field, head coach Sean McDermott took over play-calling duties from defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier. The results were immediate: The Bills held Los Angles to 65 to…

LeSean McCoy turned down an interview request Sunday, saying a rib injury made it hard to talk. A report early Monday morning would seem to confirm why. Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reported that McCoy suffered fractured ribs in the 31-20 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers. However, Rapoport issued a correction to that report later Monday morning, saying that McCoy did…

Philip Rivers had a quick conversation with Buffalo Bills rookie quarterback Josh Allen after the Los Angeles Chargers beat Buffalo 31-20 Sunday at New Era Field. "I was just telling him, 'It's your first start of a long career. You're only going to improve,' " Chargers quarterback Rivers told reporters after the game. "Each and every week, he's going to improve." Ri…

It’s accepted – maybe even expected – that rookie quarterback Josh Allen will go through some growing pains. The same is true for Bills middle linebacker Tremaine Edmunds. Some of them were on display Sunday in a 31-20 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers at New Era Field. “Me in particular, every play that I have the opportunity to make, I definitely want to make it,” E…

Grading the Bills RUNNING GAME:  LeSean McCoy rushed nine times for 39 yards. It’s the ninth time in his past 17 games that McCoy has been held to less than 50 yards. McCoy had a long run of 27 yards, which means his other eight carries gained just 12 yards. That’s putting the Bills in obvious passing situations, which is bad news. Backup running backs Chris Ivory an…

Sean McDermott had seen enough. The Buffalo Bills’ coach took over play-calling duties from defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier in the second half of Sunday’s 31-20 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers in the home opener at New Era Field. “I just thought we needed a spark and that’s my background,” McDermott said in his postgame press conference. “Coach Frazier does a r…

The Buffalo Bills go into Sunday's home opener against the Los Angeles Chargers at New Era Field with just four healthy wide receivers. Rookie Ray-Ray McCloud still isn't ready to return to the lineup as he deals with a knee injury, so he was declared inactive. He was questionable for the game. That follows veteran Jeremy Kerley being released Saturday in a numbers crun…
