Jordan Palmer had no preconceptions about Josh Allen's development as an NFL quarterback. When Palmer, a former NFL quarterback who became a QB tutor, began working with Allen in preparation for the 2018 NFL Draft, he knew his student had physical qualities that could make him a successful pro. But there was so much Palmer didn't know after Allen's career at the Univ…

It also hits on Josh Allen’s season and future, the risk involved with re-signing Shaq Lawson and a final take on the touchdown that wasn’t against the Texans.

The Bills denied permission for the New York Giants to interview offensive coordinator Brian Daboll about their offensive coordinator position, SNY reported Wednesday night. Because the job would be a lateral move, the Bills are able to deny permission. Daboll previously interviewed for the Cleveland Browns' head coaching job but the Browns hired Vikings offensive coord…

Analysis

Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator Brain Daboll relied heavily on his three-receiver personnel group in 2019, and for good reason. Even though the Bills lacked a dominant outside receiving option opposite John Brown, their third receiver still was a better option than their second tight end. So the Bills ran “11 personnel” – one back, one tight end, three receivers …

Josh Allen made significant strides in his second professional season, but he’s far from a finished product. That’s a good way to summarize what Buffalo Bills General Manager Brandon Beane and head coach Sean McDermott had to say about their young quarterback Tuesday during the team’s season-ending press conference. “He’s made a tremendous amount of progress, let’s s…

Sean McDermott and Brandon Beane will meet with the media Tuesday for their season-ending press conference, earlier than either of them would have preferred. The Buffalo Bills’ head coach and general manager will recap the 2019 season – one that ended Saturday with a 22-19 overtime loss to the Houston Texans in an AFC wild-card playoff game – while surely feeling like t…

The wounds of Saturday’s loss were still fresh Sunday morning for the Buffalo Bills. Life goes on, though, and that meant the realization of what’s to come – a long offseason, with plenty of time to stew over a 22-19 overtime loss to the Houston Texans in an AFC wild-card playoff game – started to sink in. “There's nothing you can really do to ease that kind of pain,…

HOUSTON – Grading the Bills in their 22-19 overtime loss to the Texans on Saturday at NRG Stadium … Running game: B Only 13 carries for rookie running back Devin Singletary will be questioned during the offseason. Singletary ran hard all evening, breaking tackles and keeping his legs moving until the very end. He fought for every one of his 58 yards. Quarterback J…

The Buffalo Bills ended another long drought Friday. Cornerback Tre’Davious White was named a first-team All-Pro, becoming the first Bills player to do so since defensive tackle Marcell Dareus and defensive end Mario Williams were on the team in 2014. White, in his third season, was selected to the first team along with the New England Patriots' Stephon Gilmore. Gilm…

Analysis

When the Bills run: Rookie running back Devin Singletary should be fresh after getting last week off. He’ll face a Texans run defense that allowed 121.1 yards per game and 4.81 yards per rush. Those totals ranked 25th and 27th, respectively, in the NFL and are largely built on strong play early in the year. The key to beating the Texans on the ground is to get to the ed…

Mitch Morse had an interesting description of Brian Daboll this week. The Buffalo Bills’ center was asked about the idea that the team's only true identity on offense is that they don’t have an identity, and what that says about the coordinator. “I think it says he's somewhat of a lunatic, you know what I mean?” Morse said. Um, not exactly. That requires a little …

As the 2016 season ended, the Bills were limping toward their 15th non-winning season in 17 years. Professional sports' longest playoff drought had reached 17 seasons. Bills co-owners Terry and Kim Pegula were in the market for another new coach with another new approach. On Jan. 11, 2017, the Bills hired Carolina Panthers defensive coordinator Sean McDermott. "I hav…

Sean McDermott sounded like he would have rather read off his four-digit ATM password than the Buffalo Bills’ injury report Monday. Welcome to a playoff week. McDermott, the team’s third-year head coach, is usually pretty tight-lipped when it comes to anything injury related. He took that to another level, though, just 24 hours after the regular season ended. “We’…

Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll is expected to interview for the Cleveland Browns' head coaching job, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported Monday night. The report did not indicate when the interview could take place. The Browns fired Freddie Kitchens after one season Sunday after the Browns finished a disappointing 6-10 amid high expectations. Da…
