MINNEAPOLIS – Sean McDermott thought it would benefit Matt Milano to stand and watch last week. The Buffalo Bills’ second-year linebacker lost some snaps to veteran Ramon Humber during a loss to the Los Angeles Chargers. “Sometimes, it benefits a young player to be able to watch a series or two, get next to his coach on the sideline and learn a little bit (by) watchi…

Grading the Bills RUNNING GAME: A-  Without LeSean McCoy, the expectations for the Bills’ running game were low. They’ll gladly take the final results: A combined 38 carries for 128 yards. While 3.4 yards per rush isn’t spectacular, it got the job done. Chris Ivory grinded out 56 yards on 20 carries, while Marcus Murphy took eight rushes 33 yards. The highlights on t…

MINNEAPOLIS – Truth be told, a blowout was expected Sunday. Just not this kind. Keyed by a lights-out defensive effort, the Buffalo Bills put together the upset of the young NFL season, shocking the Minnesota Vikings, 27-6, at U.S. Bank Stadium. For as outstanding as rookie quarterback Josh Allen played in the first half, the defense matched him every step of the …

MINNEAPOLIS – The Buffalo Bills will be without their top offensive weapon Sunday. Running back LeSean McCoy was declared inactive for the Week 3 game against Minnesota. McCoy went through an on-field workout before the game, but wasn't ready for the game. He's dealing with cracked rib cartilage suffered a week ago when center Ryan Groy landed on top of him. Joining …

Orchard, a former second-round pick of the Browns, was a main focus of the reality show as he struggled to earn a roster spot. That struggle, and what it …

One of my pet peeves is people from Buffalo asking in July, “Is it October yet?” We get maybe four months of summer, tops. Let's not rush them along, OK? To all those people, it looks like your time has arrived. Count me among those who will miss the 80-degree days. Onto this week's mailbag ... Rick McGuire asks: I interpret Sean McDermott’s takeover of the defensive…

Taiwan Jones needed 11 stitches to close the cuts on his forehead, but the Buffalo Bills' running back knows things could have been much, much worse. Jones never lost consciousness and did not suffer a concussion during one of the scariest plays to take place on New Era Field in recent memory. After recovering a muffed punt Sunday against the Los Angeles Chargers, Jones…

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…

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 …
