You have Buffalo Bills questions that you've submitted to me via Twitter. I have answers. Let's get rolling with our bye week edition of the Bills Mailbag. SteveTaylor24 asks: Do you notice any comparisons with the current team chemistry to the past Super Bowl teams? Vic: Yes. A great deal, in fact. I've seen camaraderie steadily grow throughout the roster. Typ…

Here are my five takes on the Buffalo Bills during their bye: 1. Trying to poke holes in their 4-1 record is a waste of time. Say what you will about those ugly victories against the New York Jets, Cincinnati Bengals and Tennessee Titans, and that gift of a win handed to the New England Patriots. None of it matters. No one apologizes for success in the NFL, becaus…

The chief architect of one of the more dominant defenses in the NFL has his priorities straight. Leslie Frazier wants to do his part to help the Buffalo Bills win their next game, which isn't until Oct. 20, when they face the Miami Dolphins. He also wants to do his part to help the Bills win a championship. What the 60-year-old Frazier isn't doing is spending a whole…

NASHVILLE – As soon as Quinton Spain took a look at the Buffalo Bills’ schedule and saw they played the Tennessee Titans here, he knew that meant something akin to a ninth home game. The Bills’ left guard played the previous four seasons with the Titans and was used to the home team enduring a hostile environment from the hordes of opponents’ fans that often pour into N…

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Duke Williams cried before Sunday’s game as he looked in the mirror, staring at the man he’d become. The 26-year-old rookie wide receiver, promoted from the Buffalo Bills’ practice squad Saturday, was about to play in his first regular season NFL game. And hours later, he’d catch the game-winning touchdown, a seven-yard dart from quarterback Josh Alle…

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Even after entering concussion protocol, Josh Allen was clear-minded enough to see what everyone else saw in the Buffalo Bills' 16-10 loss against the New England Patriots. "I'm not going to sugarcoat it," he said. "I didn't play good last week. I put the ball in harm's way too many times." Allen was standing behind a lectern in the visitor's inter…

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Here are my hot reads from the Buffalo Bills' 14-7 victory against the Tennessee Titans Sunday at Nissan Stadium: Hottest topic It won't get much in the way of style points, but that doesn't matter. This was a critical win for a team with legitimate playoff hopes. At 4-1 and 3-0 on the road, the Bills enter their bye in good shape, given a schedule …

Here are my five takes for Sunday's game between the Buffalo Bills and Tennessee Titans at Nissan Stadium in Nashville. 1. As early season games go, this one is reasonably important. To put it another way, a loss could prove more than a little damaging to the Bills' playoff aspirations. If the Bills are to be taken seriously as a postseason contender, they must take …

Quinton Spain has been in this situation before, blocking for a young, mobile, highly drafted quarterback with tremendous potential, a supposed “franchise quarterback.” For the last four seasons, the left guard protected Marcus Mariota in Tennessee. Now, it’s Josh Allen in Buffalo. “I feel like both of them are like the same,” Spain said. “Both of them like to get…

With the Buffalo Bills preparing to face the Tennessee Titans in Nashville on Sunday, it's impossible for Steve Christie to avoid thinking about his two most dramatic moments as an NFL kicker. "Certain things in your career and certain events like that will go down in history, for good or bad reasons," he said by phone from his home in Lakewood Ranch, Fla. "They always …

No matter who starts at quarterback for the Buffalo Bills against the Tennessee Titans Sunday, the mission is the same. Don't become so caught up in the excruciating loss against the New England Patriots that it lingers and gets in the way of preparation for the Titans. Look at what's ahead rather than in the rear view mirror. "Yeah, it's big," Matt Barkley said to r…

When Robert Kraft stepped off a helicopter Sunday morning in Orchard Park, Buffalo Bills fans tailgating outside New Era Field greeted the New England Patriots owner like one might expect. They showered the Pats owner with a chorus of boos. But Kraft also left a mark in another way – the helicopter literally left impressions, causing minor damage to Erie Community Co…

Bills

Abysmal doesn't begin to describe Josh Allen's performance Sunday. This was a game that demanded, at the very most, he take his game to the highest rung of a relatively short NFL career ladder and, at the very least, keep mistakes to a minimum. Allen did neither before leaving the Buffalo Bills' 16-10 loss against the New England Patriots early in the fourth quarter …

Here are my hot reads from the Buffalo Bills' 16-10 loss against the New England Patriots Sunday at New Era Field: Hottest topic The Bills' quarterback situation. Let's start with Josh Allen. Before leaving the game after taking a vicious-looking helmet-to-helmet shot, he was having what, at times, was one of the uglier performances of his 15 NFL starts. He threw thre…

Wendy Wallace couldn’t find her eldest son. It was early one morning at Three Points Child Care Center, one of several small businesses the Wallace family owned in Tucson, Ariz., and the teen was once again trying to avoid his responsibilities, whether helping his father cook or keeping an eye on the kids. “Levi Wallace, report to the office!” Wendy announced over th…
