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…

Before Josh Allen can execute his first play Sunday, he first has to call it. Sounds simple, right? Not always, especially for rookie quarterbacks in the NFL. “I’ve been around some young quarterbacks before, and the play clock – it’s real,” Buffalo Bills coach Sean McDermott said this week. “To get in and out of the huddle on time is a challenge sometimes for you…

Balitmore Ravens outside linebacker Matthew Judon was fined $10,026 for his unnecessary roughness penalty on Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen, according to Jeff Zrebiec of the Athletic Baltimore. Judon hit Allen at the end of a scramble that gained three yards on a second-and-8 play at the Ravens' 19-yard line midway through the third quarter. Bills offensive tac…

As you might imagine, Nathan Peterman's meltdown in Week 1 inspired plenty of questions for this week's mailbag. Let's get to them ... Brendan Sweet asks: What are the chances the Bills bring in a veteran quarterback and release Nathan Peterman? If so, who would it be? Any chance they'd sign Colin Kaepernick? Brian Vattimo asks: Don’t you think the Bills should add a…

Sean McDermott was straight to the point this week when asked if the Buffalo Bills needed more from Kelvin Benjamin and Charles Clay. “Absolutely,” the coach said. After combining for just one catch for 10 yards from Benjamin in a disappointing season opener against Baltimore, it’s an understatement to say there is plenty of room for improvement from the two players …

Kelvin Benjamin said Thursday he's got no beef with fellow wide receiver Zay Jones. Benjamin was the target of a critical tweet earlier this week from Jones' mother. Responding to a tweet about Jones' playing time against the Ravens, Maneesha Jones said "who else is skilled enough to play all Wide out positions AND tell Benjamin where to line up?" The tweet was later…
