The Bills' defense logged three turnovers Sunday. You're supposed to win with that. In fact, since 2000, teams with three or more takeaways have enjoyed a .795 winning percentage. But the Bills were on the wrong end of a 20-16 decision to the Bengals thanks to an anemic and depleted offense. "At the end of the day, with those three turnovers, we've got to find a way to …

Philadelphia, Green Bay and Carolina all were winners in significant games on Sunday to go 4-1 but injuries to two of the National Football League’s biggest names made bigger news. New York Giants star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. suffered a broken left ankle in his team’s fifth straight loss, and Houston Texans defensive star J.J. Watt left his team’s game against Kansas C…

CINCINNATI – Tyrod Taylor neatly summarized the Buffalo Bills’ offensive performance Sunday. “The offense didn’t play the way we needed to win against a very good defense,” Taylor said after a 20-16 loss at soggy Paul Brown Stadium. “I’ll take full responsibility for that.” Taylor’s numbers weren’t pretty – 20 of 37 for 166 yards, one touchdown and one interception. …

CINCINNATI – There is a short list of players the Buffalo Bills can least afford to lose this season, and tight end Charles Clay is near the top. Unfortunately for the Bills, that’s what happened Sunday in a 20-16 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals at Paul Brown Stadium. Clay suffered a left knee injury in the second quarter when he was hit by Bengals safety Shawn Williams …

CINCINNATI – Observations from what was a dismal – to put it kindly – performance from the Buffalo Bills' offense Sunday. 1. For as good as the Bills’ win in Atlanta was in Week Four, this is equally as bad. The reality is, a 3-2 record at the bye week would have been better if the wins came against the Jets, Broncos and Bengals, because that would have given them the f…

CINCINNATI – The Buffalo Bills are shaking up their offensive line. Guard John Miller, who has started the first four games of the year, in a healthy inactive against the Bengals. He will be replaced in the lineup by veteran Vlad Ducasse. Rookie Dion Dawkins will start at left tackle even though veteran Cordy Glenn is active. Also inactive for the Bills are offensive…

CINCINNATI – It's the Battle of Queen Cities on Sunday. The Buffalo Bills made themselves home at Paul Brown Stadium last year, with a 16-12 win on Nov. 20, 2016. Cincinnati is off to a 1-3 start, but has looked better the last two games after making a change at offensive coordinator. Here are all the details you need for Sunday's game, plus five things we'll …

Wide receiver Philly Brown's return to the Bills was short-lived. Brown, who was signed Monday following the injury to Jordan Matthews, was released Saturday. Brown, signed as a free agent in the offseason, spent all of training camp and the preseason with the Bills before his release as they trimmed their roster to 53. Without Brown, the Bills will have four wide…

Preston Brown watched this offseason as, one by one, the Buffalo Bills said goodbye to his veteran teammates. Stephon Gilmore? Off to New England. Aaron Williams and Corey Graham? Cut. Robert Woods? Back home to L.A. Sammy Watkins and Ronald Darby? Sent on their way in trades. "I mean we traded away some good players, some good players signed other places, but I thin…

The novelty hasn’t worn off for Eric Wood. Even though the Buffalo Bills’ center will return to Cincinnati for the fourth time Sunday as a professional, each trip is special. “Always. I played a couple games in high school in that stadium,” Wood said. “So it’s always neat going back.” Wood attended Elder High School on the city’s west side, an area he calls “prett…

It’s fitting that Sean McDermott got right to the point when talking about Matt Milano on Wednesday. “He’s ready,” the Buffalo Bills’ coach said of the rookie linebacker, who's in line to make his first career start Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals. “He’s ready and he’ll only get more and more ready as he puts the time in this week.” Cutting to the chase is Mila…

Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis Opening comments “The Bills are playing really good football. Offensively, they’ve been impressive. They’ve really done a great job of not turning the football over. They’ve been very productive on third downs, which is key. They’ve converted 40 percent of their third downs. That’s what stands out. Obviously (Bills QB) Tyrod Taylor is do…

A look at the records might suggest it’s a mistake that the 3-1 Buffalo Bills are underdogs to the 1-3 Cincinnati Bengals. An 0-2 start had the Bengals looking like one of the worst teams in the NFL. Coach Marvin Lewis, however, borrowed a page from Rex Ryan, who last year fired offensive coordinator Greg Roman and replaced him with Anthony Lynn after the Bills got off …

Bills head coach Sean McDermott insisted he has all the confidence in the world in his receiving corps. Even after the loss of Jordan Matthews. Even after the team re-signed Philly Brown on Tuesday. The lack of production from the position group and Matthews’ indefinite absence due to thumb surgery haven’t shaken McDermott’s resolve (at least not publicly) nor has it…
