Leslie Frazier was confident the Buffalo Bills would fix what was broken with their run defense. Through the first half Sunday against the Washington Redskins, he looked to be grossly mistaken. A week after allowing 218 rushing yards to the Philadelphia Eagles, the Bills were in the process of being gashed again. Washington running back Adrian Peterson, the 34-year-o…

The Buffalo Bills continue to look for the right mix at wide receiver. On Sunday at New Era Field, that means Duke Williams is the odd man out. Williams, who made his professional debut in Week 5 against Tennessee and caught the go-ahead touchdown pass, will be a healthy inactive against the Washington Redskins. Williams suffered a shoulder injury against Miami in We…

Grading the Buffalo Bills in their 31-13 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday at New Era Field: RUNNING GAME: D Quarterback Josh Allen was the team’s leading rusher. That’s not a good thing.

Quarterback Josh Allen, who ran wild against the M…

Running game: B- It came alive at the end. Taking over with 4:12 left in the fourth quarter, the Buffalo Bills were able to run out the clock thanks to the ground game.

Gore then went for 11 yards and followed that with a 19-yard gain. Af…

Running game: B Buffalo Bills running back Frank Gore is something else. He surpassed 15,000 career rushing yards, finishing with 109 yards on just 17 carries. The 36-year-old averaged 6.4 yards per rush, and hit his milestone with a classic, 41-yard run in which he knifed through the middle of the New England Patriots’ defense and bounced off of multiple tackle attempts.…
