The Bills Mafia traveled well in 2019. The Bills ranked third in the NFL this past season in road attendance, with an average of 71,579 fans at their eight games away from New Era Field. That’s something that the team’s front office – and especially players – noticed. “You go back to Nashville, Miami and Houston. Nashville, that game, that was like a bowl game,” G…

Watching the Sabres on Thursday night, I was left with one thought: The Sabres are wasting Jack Eichel's prime. Eichel is an MVP candidate this year, and it's not going to mean a thing. Maybe his best years are still to come, which is a scary thought for the league, but do you have confidence in the Sabres getting it together any time soon? Eichel turns 24 next year.…

Brandon Beane needed a minute to compose himself. The Buffalo Bills’ general manager doesn’t speak publicly very much during the season, so when it was his turn during the team’s end-of-year press conference, Beane had a lengthy list of thank-you's. He started with coach Sean McDermott and his staff for the job they did in leading the team to a 10-6 record and a seco…

Frank Gore’s impact on the Buffalo Bills figures to be felt long after his time on the playing field is finished. The veteran running back’s future is up in the air after the Bills were eliminated Saturday from the AFC playoffs. Gore’s contract expires in March, and he hasn’t decided if he wants to continue playing after a decorated, 15-year career that will surely lead…

Josh Allen made significant strides in his second professional season, but he’s far from a finished product. That’s a good way to summarize what Buffalo Bills General Manager Brandon Beane and head coach Sean McDermott had to say about their young quarterback Tuesday during the team’s season-ending press conference. “He’s made a tremendous amount of progress, let’s s…

Bills

Sean McDermott and Brandon Beane will meet with the media Tuesday for their season-ending press conference, earlier than either of them would have preferred. The Buffalo Bills’ head coach and general manager will recap the 2019 season – one that ended Saturday with a 22-19 overtime loss to the Houston Texans in an AFC wild-card playoff game – while surely feeling like t…

Former Bills coach Wade Phillips was informed Monday that he will not be retained as the Los Angeles Rams' defensive coordinator. Phillips met with coach Sean McVay Monday as the Rams began evaluating the 2019 season, which ended with a 9-7 record and the Rams' missing the playoffs a season after playing in the Super Bowl. Phillips oversaw a unit that ranked 13th in …

Bills

The Buffalo Bills have started to turn the page to the 2020 season. The team signed 10 players from its practice squad to reserve/future contracts Monday. They were: quarterback Davis Webb, cornerback Cam Lewis, running back Christian Wade, tight end Nate Becker, wide receiver Nick Easley, linebacker Tyrel Dodson, wide receiver Ray-Ray McCloud, linebacker Del'Shawn Phil…

The wounds of Saturday’s loss were still fresh Sunday morning for the Buffalo Bills. Life goes on, though, and that meant the realization of what’s to come – a long offseason, with plenty of time to stew over a 22-19 overtime loss to the Houston Texans in an AFC wild-card playoff game – started to sink in. “There's nothing you can really do to ease that kind of pain,…

HOUSTON – Melanie Stewart helped to set up the lines of tables in Pierce Street. She is a manager at Christian's Tailgate Bar & Grill, a home away from home to Buffalo Bills fans in Houston, and she fully expected the street to be packed with celebrants after Saturday's playoff showdown with the Texans. Instead, a solemn guy in a Josh Allen jersey, Steve Kammermayer…

HOUSTON – Grading the Bills in their 22-19 overtime loss to the Texans on Saturday at NRG Stadium … Running game: B Only 13 carries for rookie running back Devin Singletary will be questioned during the offseason. Singletary ran hard all evening, breaking tackles and keeping his legs moving until the very end. He fought for every one of his 58 yards. Quarterback J…

HOUSTON – It took a while for the expected showdown between Tre’Davious White and DeAndre Hopkins to heat up. When it did, the Buffalo Bills’ All-Pro cornerback got the early advantage. Eventually, though, the Texans’ All-Pro receiver – and his quarterback – got the last laugh. Hopkins beat White for a 41-yard completion in the fourth quarter Saturday, setting up the…

Bills

HOUSTON — The Buffalo Bills will be without starting cornerback Levi Wallace on Saturday. Wallace will miss the wild-card playoff game against the Texans at NRG Stadium because of a sprained ankle, meaning Kevin Johnson will start opposite Tre'Davious White. The Bills also made a big move at wide receiver. Duke Williams will play, while Robert Foster is a healthy ina…

Bills

The Buffalo Bills ended another long drought Friday. Cornerback Tre’Davious White was named a first-team All-Pro, becoming the first Bills player to do so since defensive tackle Marcell Dareus and defensive end Mario Williams were on the team in 2014. White, in his third season, was selected to the first team along with the New England Patriots' Stephon Gilmore. Gilm…

Analysis

When the Bills run: Rookie running back Devin Singletary should be fresh after getting last week off. He’ll face a Texans run defense that allowed 121.1 yards per game and 4.81 yards per rush. Those totals ranked 25th and 27th, respectively, in the NFL and are largely built on strong play early in the year. The key to beating the Texans on the ground is to get to the ed…
