Bills

Sean McDermott knows he’s in a bit of a can’t-win situation. The Buffalo Bills’ head coach is entering what amounts to a meaningless game, at least in terms of the standings. Sunday’s regular-season finale against the New York Jets will not change the Bills’ playoff positioning – they’re locked into the fifth seed and know they will be on the road to start the playoffs,…

Analysis

When the Buffalo Bills run: It’s become Devin Singletary and not much else on the ground for the Bills. The good news is, the rookie’s been up to the task. Singletary is averaging 5.6 yards per carry, which ranks third in the NFL and second among running backs. Running behind right guard Jon Feliciano is a good idea this week for the Bills. The Pittstburgh Steelers’ defens…

It would be easy for the Buffalo Bills to look ahead. With one win over the final three games, the team can clinch a playoff spot. It can accomplish one of its preseason goals as soon as Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Accomplish that, and then attention would turn to the possibility of overtaking the New England Patriots for the AFC East title. Sean McDer…

Commentary

This week's Bills Mailbag is once again loaded. It starts with why Sean McDermott isn't getting more love and then hits on plenty more, including who has the best chance at making the Pro Bowl, what's up with claiming a kicker and whether the team should be worried about losing one or both of its coordinators this offseason. Let's get to it ... Robert Goodwin asks: Why so…

The third quarter of the Buffalo Bills’ schedule played out exactly as the first two, with one key difference. The Bills went 3-1 again, the same as the first two quarters of the schedule, improving their record to 9-3 on the season. The difference, though, is how they looked doing it. There was no squeaking by the New York Jets or New York Giants, no second-half com…

Pretty soon, the Buffalo Bills are going to run out of haters and doubters. A 9-3 start and a nationally televised rout of America’s Team on Thanksgiving will do that. After the win over the Dallas Cowboys last Thursday, the outlook for the Bills has shifted. On Sunday night, their Week 15 game at Pittsburgh was flexed into the premier spot on the NFL calendar – Sund…

This week’s Bills Mailbag is the Thanksgiving leftovers version. I’m thankful for the questions you all send my way each week, but sometimes can’t fit them all in. Here, we clean up the leftovers, starting with a pair of questions dealing with Josh Allen’s use of the no-huddle offense. Let’s dig in … Michael Lenhard asks: The game is SO much different now than when J…

ARLINGTON, Texas – Grading the Buffalo Bills in their 26-15 win over the Dallas Cowboys at AT&T Stadium … Running game: B Credit offensive coordinator Brian Daboll for sticking with it. The Bills rushed 10 more times than they threw the ball – 34 to 24 – and grinded out 134 yards. Rookie Devin Singletary led the way with 14 carries that produced 63 yards and incl…

Jon Feliciano’s extracurricular activities have been curtailed. The Buffalo Bills’ right guard loves to stream Fortnite in his free time, but there hasn’t been much of that lately. All of Feliciano’s time has been spent at work, where he has developed into a key cog along the Bills’ offensive line. “It’s definitely a different season. I’m learning a lot,” Feliciano s…

This week's Bills Mailbag looks ahead to a couple of looming contract situations, ponders a divisional realignment (please, no) and sizes up the final six weeks of the regular season. Let's dive right in ... BMac: Does it make sense to start extending some of the key players like Jordan Phillips or Shaq Lawson? Jay Skurski: It makes sense for the Bills, but it might …

Analysis

When the Bills run: Ball security was presumably a big focus for Devin Singletary during the week. The rookie fumbled twice against Miami, mistakes that were largely forgotten because the Bills were able to recover both times. The Bills have been remarkably lucky with fumbles, recovering 10 of the 15 times they’ve put the ball on the ground on offense. Singletary also n…

Since his retirement in 1997, Jim Kelly has been looking to pass the baton of most successful quarterback in Buffalo Bills history. The Hall of Famer thinks he finally has a worthy candidate in Josh Allen, who was named AFC Player of the Week on Wednesday for his standout performance in the Bills' 37-20 victory against the Miami Dolphins Sunday. Since Allen joined th…

Bills

The Buffalo Bills’ offense looked different Sunday against the Miami Dolphins, partly because it stayed the same. The Bills stuck primarily with the same five skill players around quarterback Josh Allen and the starting offensive line, using running back Devin Singletary, tight end Dawson Knox and wide receivers John Brown, Cole Beasley and Isaiah McKenzie. Each of thos…

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – Grading the Buffalo Bills in their 37-20 win over the Miami Dolphins on Sunday at Hard Rock Stadium: RUNNING GAME: A It started well, with Devin Singletary ripping off a 22-yard run on the game’s first play from scrimmage. Short yardage, an area the Bills had struggled in earlier this season, was a strength. Quarterback Josh Allen converted a pa…

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – Brian Daboll switched things up Sunday – and we’re not just talking his facial hair. The Buffalo Bills’ offensive coordinator’s familiar beard was gone before the game against the Miami Dolphins, replaced by a mustache. That led to some jokes on social media about the Bills winning by “a million.” They didn’t score quite that many, but the 37 they …
