Here are my five takes for Sunday's home opener between the Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals at New Era Field. 1. Seize the opportunity. It's there, virtually being served to the Bills like a giant plate of wings. There simply is no reason for them to fail to emerge from this game at 3-0, something they haven't done since 2011. What was true a week ago against…

Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton is back in Buffalo this weekend as Cincinnati faces the Bills at New Era Field.

Andy Dalton got the hero's welcome that was expected Sunday at New Era Field. Then he went out and stuck it to the Buffalo Bills. The Cincinnati Bengals' starting quarterback went 11 of 16 for 180 yards and two touchdowns in one half of work, leading his team to a 26-13 victory. That capped what Dalton called a "good day," one that started with a visit to Roswell Par…

Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton received the expected standing ovation from Bills fans at New Era Field as he was introduced before Sunday's preseason game.

When was the last time a preseason game generated this much buzz? I wouldn't be surprised if there are 60,000 people in the stands Sunday when the Buffalo Bills host the Cincinnati Bengals at New Era Field. The highlight, of course, will be rookie quarterback Josh Allen working with the starters – an excellent opportunity for him to win the starting role for the season …

Bills

The Buffalo Bills' quarterback competition took another turn Monday evening. The team announced that rookie quarterback Josh Allen will start Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals in the third preseason game — traditionally the dress rehearsal for teams as they prepare for the regular season. The announcement came after Allen worked with the starters at practice in t…

CINCINNATI — Andy Dalton has been told he should run for mayor of Buffalo, because he'd likely win. In a landslide. "I hear it all the time," Dalton said, flashing a sheepish smile. "Walking through an airport or something like that, I still get a random, 'Hey, I'm a Bills fan. Appreciate ya!' Stuff like that." For the last five months, the daily Bills buzz has be…

ORLANDO, Fla. – Marvin Lewis broke into a smile and seemed on the verge of laughing out loud while he spoke about AJ McCarron. Lewis coached McCarron the past four seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals. For now, McCarron is expected to be the Buffalo Bills' opening-day quarterback. So what is it about McCarron that makes Lewis beam at the mere mention? "He's a joy t…

Bills

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Sunday's playoff game was there to be won, but the Buffalo Bills demonstrated they're not quite ready to challenge for anything more than our hearts just yet. Rookie head coach Sean McDermott and first-year General Manager Brandon Beane made progress in establishing a new Bills era. Now we get to watch them try to turn a plucky club into a true cont…

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The belief from the beginning was that the Buffalo Bills were looking toward 2018 and beyond. All the trades, the unloaded salaries and the accumulation of draft choices signaled an organization building for the future. That the Bills reached the postseason was a bonus, a beautiful fluke that flowed from Cincinnati quarterback Andy Dalton's right…

The giving from Buffalo Bills fans continues to the Andy & Jordan Dalton Foundation. As of 3 p.m. Thursday, nearly 14,000 donors have given $307,000, according to a spokesman. Bills fans have embraced Dalton after the Bengals' last-minute win over the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday helped the Bills get into the playoffs and end the franchise's 17-year playoff drought…

Tyler Boyd deserves some love, too. Boyd is the Bengals wide receiver who caught the game-winning touchdown pass from Andy Dalton that sent the Bills to the playoffs. Given the widespread support that Dalton's foundation has received from Bills fans – in excess of $200,000 since Sunday night – Boyd took to Twitter to let Bills fans know about a cause close to his hea…
