Few understand the passion and commitment of Bills fans better than former Buffalo quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, now with the Miami Dolphins. As has become custom when the Bills play on the road, Bills fans make the trip, particularly to South Florida. Sunday's game at Hard Rock Stadium often sounded more like a Bills' home game than a Dolphins' home game. "Their fan…

Analysis

Swirling winds topping 40 miles an hour whipped through New Era Field on Sunday and blew the lid and shine off the Bills’ previous lofty, second-in-the-AFC record.   Buffalo is neither as good as 5-1 might indicate, nor as bad as the 31-13 drubbing by the Eagles might, either.  No unit, coach, or player fared well. The Bills were dominated on both sides of the ball, …

The Bills Mafia invaded Smashville on Sunday and witnessed a titanic, ice-breaking win by their beloved Bills. The victory separated Buffalo from Tennessee in the premature playoff race, and steered the Bills to a 4-1 record; now tied for second in the AFC.  Improbable hero Duke Williams came out of obscurity and off the practice squad to the delight of his legion of sy…

Buffalo Bills coach Sean McDermott has been effusive about the support of Bills fans when the team is on the road this season. He said the turnout in Nashville this weekend was on another level. "What a fan following down here. Unbelievable," McDermott said to start his postgame news conference after the 14-7 win. "I don’t think I have ever seen it like that at an away …

The Buffalo Bills went head-to-head against the New England Patriots on Sunday, tête-à-tête between two headstrong coaches and were ultimately knocked out by a fierce fourth-quarter helmet-to-helmet hit. Let’s get the crud out early. Josh Allen threw three interceptions, two of which were horrible ideas and passes, and one just horrendous pass. A special teams snafu com…

The guy has got game, especially when the game is on the line. Bills quarterback Josh Allen has five comeback victories in 13 starts he has completed. And on many plays, that game is Madden. Allen’s highlight plays, using his Gumby legs and arm, are often hard to believe on second and third viewings even when you know exactly what happened already. It is the seemingl…

Eric Bish and Angela Collins met at the Bills’ home opener in 2016. Their first date was 10 days later for the Bills’ game against the Cardinals. They have gone to every game together since for the last three years. So when it was time to pop the question, Bish knew it had to be at a Bills game. In June, he decided that he was going to propose to Collins at the home …

Josh Allen was not given the key to the city of Buffalo; Josh Allen has the key to the city. Drafted seventh overall in 2018, Allen just showed up with it the next day. The Bills quarterback seems to be the embodiment, correct button pusher, and possess most all of the qualities we want in our sports stars: blue collar and red-blooded; gifted and gutsy; a high-flying un…

Each year, even veteran, established NFL squads claim it is a different team, year, and often, result. For younger, inexperienced bad teams, they make that claim even more often. But the new, New Era Buffalo Bills have transformed their lineup and makeup in dramatic fashion, and the result was a drama-filled sea change in momentum and ultimate, unexpected win on the road a…

Buffalo Bills fans are everywhere. Here is a sampling of why they have embraced Josh Allen: Jeff Glor, CBS News and Tonawanda native I think Bills fans have embraced Josh Allen because he’s embraced them. Nick Bakay, actor, comedian, producer and Nichols School graduate I think it all boils down to enthusiasm and arm strength. We finally have a guy with a Jim K…

A fan from Hamburg has started a petition to urge the Buffalo Bills to sign Pancho Billa to a one-day contract. The Change.org petition had more than 7,800  people sign by Monday morning, more than the initial goal of 5,000. The petition was started by Steve Varga on Saturday afternoon. "This petition is to show your support as a member of the BILLS MAFIA in persuadi…

The NFL draft, like opening day and the Super Bowl, should be a national holiday. Perhaps three days are too much for the NFL, but we can punt Presidents, Labor and Columbus Day, and I love me some veterans but combine Veterans with Memorial Day, and yes, I know the difference. This is Draft Day, dammit! I hate to even call it "Draft Day" after that awful movie that sho…

Bills super fan Ezra Castro, aka Pancho Billa, has canceled his planned trip to the NFL Draft in Nashville. Castro tweeted Tuesday, "Health comes 1st, still in the hospital for a few more days." Castro was brought on stage and announced the Bills' third-round pick last year. Former Bills receiver Stevie Johnson, who is scheduled to announce this year's third-round pi…
