In many ways, Jordan Phillips is having a storybook NFL career. Two years ago, the Miami Dolphins waived the defensive tackle less than three seasons after he was a second-round draft pick and the Buffalo Bills promptly picked him up on waivers. To say Phillips has made the most of his second chance would be an understatement. On the verge of becoming an unrestric…

Whenever Andre Reed is around Ed Oliver or Josh Allen or pretty much any current Buffalo Bills player, he knows it's a virtual certainty they'll ask him to reach into the team's past. What were those Super Bowl seasons like? How did those teams get to that level? Why were you able to stay so good for so long? "So I can bring a little bit of that to the team now," Ree…

A question mark has been hovering over Foxborough, Mass., for awhile. It was there even as the New England Patriots sat in first place in the AFC East throughout the 2019 season, thanks largely to uncharacteristic struggles on offense. It continued to cast a shadow even as they beat the Buffalo Bills on Dec. 21 to seal an 11th consecutive AFC East title. It only grew la…

The notion that the Buffalo Bills can instantly make Josh Allen a better quarterback and cure their offensive anemia by adding a dynamic wide receiver or two is where fans want to start most offseason conversations. Quick fixes are always popular, even those based on the flawed premise that it's the pass-catchers who bring out the best in passers rather than the other w…

Latest Sabres

After a day off, the Buffalo Sabres returned to practice Tuesday but still did not have newly acquired Michael Frolik on the ice with them. Frolik, the veteran forward the team acquired in a trade Thursday from Calgary, has a stall in the team's KeyBank Center dressing room and will wear No. 67 when he arrives. The Sabres hope he'll be available to make his debut with t…

It’s fair to wonder exactly what the Buffalo Bills have in Josh Allen. What's unfair is pointing to his performance Saturday and concluding that he isn’t a franchise quarterback. The Bills’ decision-makers won’t do that, and the reason has zero to do with avoiding an admission of a colossal mistake. It's far too early for that conversation. The first-round investm…

The next, they were watching their season come to a sudden and bitter end with a 22-19 overtime loss at NRG Stadium. This one will stin…

Josh Allen hugged Lorenzo Alexander after the veteran linebacker made it official Saturday: He's retiring after 13 NFL seasons. "I'm done," the Buffalo Bills' linebacker said in the visitors' locker room at NRG Stadium following a 22-19 loss to the Houston Texans in an AFC wild-card playoff game.

HOUSTON – Veronica Borjon has stayed busy offering a few surprises. She and her kids drove nine hours from Dallas not long after Christmas to show up on the doorstep of her delighted mother and her family, in El Paso. Her grandfather, Margarito Esparva, is now 95, and Veronica wanted her kids to have the chance to really spend some time with him. Certain opportunities a…
