There were so many moments, so many chances for the Bills to pull off the improbable.
And that’s why this loss — a 9-3 defeat in Week Two to the Carolina Panthers — should especially sting.
By all means, give Sean McDermott’s team credit for contesting this one until the bitter end. Sure, applaud the Bills’ overworked defense for gutting it out for 60 minutes and sacking…
There is an undeniable stigma that comes with being known as a special-teams player in the NFL.
The insinuation is that a player who carries that label isn’t good enough to contribute offensively or defensively. The Buffalo Bills had someone last year who showed it’s possible to break out of that mold.
They just might have another one do it this year, too.
Mike Tolbert has never been short of chips for his broad shoulders.
The Buffalo Bills' running back has been doubted his entire NFL career. For being too short. For being too slow. For not being fast enough. Even for being "too fat."
All of those slights have been motivation for what has become a 10-year career. Tolbert's most recent motivational source is the way in…
The Buffalo Bills officially had the second-oldest roster in the NFL on Kickoff Weekend, according to data released Thursday by the league.
After examining the rosters of all 32 teams, the league released data Thursday that showed the Bills have an average age of 26.81 years. That's tops in the AFC and second in the NFL to only the Arizona Cardinals, who have an average…
The Buffalo Bills currently have just four cornerbacks on their 53-man roster.
The team did make a move to add some depth to the position Thursday, though, by signing cornerback Greg Mabin to the practice squad. To make room for him, the team released tight end MyCole Pruitt from the practice squad.
Mabin, 23, made the Bills' 53-man roster out of training camp. He wa…
A total of five running backs gained at least 100 yards in the NFL during Week One.
Three of them are rookies (Kansas City's Kareem Hunt, Minnesota's Dalvin Cook and Jacksonville's Leonard Fournette). One of them is reigning rushing champion Ezekiel Elliott of the Dallas Cowboys, a second-year veteran.
The other is LeSean McCoy. The Buffalo Bills' 29-year-old veteran…
Peppered by questions about Marcell Dareus’ limited playing time against the Jets, Bills head coach Sean McDermott reiterated his philosophy on what it takes to win games.
“Our system is our system, just in terms of rotating players. We want fresh players,” McDermott said before Wednesday’s practice. “…That’s just philosophically what we believe in.”
That philosophy does…
Throughout the 2017 season, The Buffalo News will track the performances of players from both Western New York and local colleges who are currently in the NFL. Here are their results in Week One:
• Eagles S Corey Graham: The Buffalo native had two tackles in Philadelphia's 30-17 victory over Washington. Graham played 18 of 63 defensive snaps (29 percent) and 13 snaps on…
It's homecoming week for Sean McDermott, but the Buffalo Bills' coach did his best to downplay the significance of that Monday.
McDermott will take the AFC East-leading Bills to Carolina for a Week Two meeting with the Panthers, with whom he spent the past six seasons as defensive coordinator. Surely this date had to be highlighted on the calendar, right coach?
Before the Buffalo Bills' season opener Sunday against the New York Jets, a report from NFL Network surfaced regarding defensive tackle Marcell Dareus.
Ian Rapoport, an NFL Network Insider, described Dareus as a "former face of the franchise" who is now in the "crosshairs" of new General Manager Brandon Beane and coach Sean McDermott.
"I am told he is in a make-or-br…
Here's a look at stories from around the league on Saturday, Sept. 9.
1. David Johnson has a dislocated wrist
The No. 1 pick in most every fantasy draft is expected to miss an extended period of time, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.
Johnson will seek a second opinion, but he could be placed on injured reserve. The Arizona Cardinals currently have Kerwynn…

Mike Tolbert can feel it coming.
In his eyes, LeSean McCoy can do it all. The Bills running back is catlike quick, able to cut on a dime (hence Shady’s Twitter handle) and shake off defenders with the slightest twitch and stutter-step.
Now, throw in a 250-pound fullback who loves to bulldoze any dude in his way ... well, then you’ve got something special, Tolbert said.
Micah Hyde had but one piece of advice for Jordan Poyer on Sunday: Hit the weights.
The Buffalo Bills’ safety jokingly gave his partner in the secondary a hard time after almost having an interception wrestled away from him during a 21-12 season-opening victory over the New York Jets at New Era Field.
“He has to get in the weight room because the guy took it from him…
Jordan Matthews found himself getting anxious.
The Buffalo Bills' No. 1 receiver sat out the entire preseason with a chip fracture in his sternum. Then the first half of Sunday's season opener against the New York Jets came and went at New Era Field with Matthews making just one catch for 14 yards.
"It definitely took me a while just to be able to get back into it," …
