MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – There are no major surprises on the Buffalo Bills' list of inactives for Sunday's game against the Dolphins at Hard Rock Stadium. Running back T.J. Yeldon, wide receiver Duke Williams, tight end Tommy Sweeney, defensive tackle Vincent Taylor, safety Dean Marlowe and offensive linemen Ryan Bates and Ike Boettger won't play against Miami. The bigg…

This week’s Bills Mailbag starts with expectations for this year’s team. What’s fair and what’s not? It also hits on sparking the offense, what would happen with a loss to Miami (here’s a hint: Stay away from social media) and Josh Allen’s continued struggles with the deep ball, plus much more. Let’s dive in … Dale Zuchlewski asks: Do you think the Bills’ brass understa…

The Buffalo Bills aren’t getting what they need from Stephen Hauschka. That was abundantly clear last week, when the team’s veteran kicker missed a pair of field goals in a 19-16 loss to the Cleveland Browns. Hauschka’s issues, however, date back to well before last Sunday. In his last 14 games, the kicker known as “Hausch Money” has been anything but, going 14 of 24…

When the Bills run: A week after giving Devin Singletary a career-high 20 carries, the rookie got just eight against the Browns, inviting another week of second-guessing of offensive coordinator Brian Daboll. Until quarterback Josh Allen shows he can consistently beat teams through the air, the Bills should get used to seeing defenses stack the box to stop the run. That sh…

The Buffalo Bills’ clock management at the end of Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Browns at FirstEnergy Stadium was confusing, to say the least. Coach Sean McDermott did his best to offer some sort of an explanation Monday. “The plans weren’t really to huddle at that point. It was to go to the line and get the third-down call off and then save the timeout there,”…

Analysis

CLEVELAND – Everyone inside FirstEnergy Stadium knew where Baker Mayfield was going with the football. The Cleveland Browns’ quarterback stared down intended receiver Odell Beckham Jr. in the fourth quarter Sunday at FirstEnergy Stadium, then threw the ball anyway. Bills cornerback Tre’Davious White, who was trailing Beckham in coverage, turned around just as the ball a…

CLEVELAND – Grading the Buffalo Bills in their 19-16 loss to the Cleveland Browns at FirstEnergy Stadium on Sunday. Running game: D The Bills finished with a season-low 84 yards on 20 carries. A week after logging 20 carries, rookie Devin Singletary took just eight. Those eight carries went for 42 yards – a solid average of 5.3 per rush. Singletary produces when he gets …

CLEVELAND – The Buffalo Bills signed kicker Stephen Hauschka to a two-year contract extension before the 2019 season started with moments like Sunday in mind. Trailing by three points against the Cleveland Browns at FirstEnergy Stadium, Hauschka came onto the field with 22 seconds remaining. Convert a 53-yard field goal, and the Bills and Browns likely go to overtime. …

CLEVELAND – The Buffalo Bills are sticking with the same set of wide receivers in Week 10. That means Duke Williams is a healthy inactive for the second straight game. The Bills will go with John Brown, Cole Beasley, Isaiah McKenzie, Robert Foster and Andre Roberts at receiver against the Browns at FirstEnergy Stadium. The Bills did not list any players on their fina…

Let’s dive in … Nick Hauser asks: This is the most important game of the season. Although the coaching staff will say it’s just another game and they all matter, your playoff chances dr…

Star Lotulelei doesn’t appear to have much of a presence on social media. No verified Twitter account. No Facebook or Instagram. That’s probably for the best. The Buffalo Bills’ defensive tackle has taken plenty of scorn online over the last few weeks as the team’s run defense has been repeatedly gashed. “Star Lotulelei is washed up.” “Star Lotulelei has been t…

When the Bills run: More Devin Singletary, please. The Bills’ rookie had his breakout game last week against Washington, rushing 20 times for 95 yards and a touchdown. Singletary got nearly double the carries as veteran Frank Gore (11 carries, 15 yards), and there’s no good reason why that should change moving forward. Washington ranked 28th against the run coming into Wee…

Bills

The second quarter of the Buffalo Bills’ 2019 season closely mirrored the first. Once again, the team went 3-1. Once again, those wins came against lackluster competition. And once again, media and fans have been left to debate, just how good is this year’s team? Players, understandably, are growing tired of that line of questioning. After Sunday’s 24-9 victory ov…

Jordan Phillips bet on himself by signing a one-year contract with the Buffalo Bills this offseason. He’s well on his way toward seeing that bet pay off in a big way. Phillips had another sack Sunday in the Bills’ 24-9 win over the Washington Redskins at New Era Field, his sixth of the season – tops among all defensive tackles in the NFL through Week 9. “The guy’s…
