Sean McDermott seemingly spoke for all of Bills Mafia on Monday in describing his team’s 5-1 start to the season. “Feels good,” the Bills’ coach said. “It feels good, but we’re not where we need to be.” After a close call Sunday against the Miami Dolphins at New Era Field, most every Bills fan would agree. Although they have the second-best record in the AFC, the Bil…

John Brown is on pace to do something that hasn't been done in Buffalo in more than a dozen years.

Running game: C+ Even with Buffalo Bills rookie Devin Singletary back in the lineup, it was veteran Frank Gore who continued to handle the bulk of the rushing duties. Gore gained 55 yards on 11 carries against his former team. He has 388 yards on the season and is on pace for 1,034. For a 36-year-old, that’s impressive. Quarterback Josh Allen, who ran wild against the M…

White first intercepted old friend Ryan Fitzpatrick in the third quarter to stop a 10-minute Miami drive that r…
