No serious reporter wants to become part of a story he or she is covering. However, sometimes it can't be avoided. On Wednesday night, two CBS News employees with Western New York ties became part of a story that has rocked the network's legendary news magazine "60 Minutes" and the entire news division.

I raced home from the Toronto International Film Festival on Sunday after seeing nine movies in three days to see the Buffalo Bills get humiliated, 47-3, by the Baltimore Ravens in the season opener.

The Bills earned CBS' top billing this Sunday for their matchup with the Patriots, drawing CBS' No. 1 broadcast crew of Jim Nantz on play-by-play, Tony Romo as the analysis and Tracy Wolfson on the sidelines. The trio previously called the Bills' Thursday night game against the Jets in Week 8. CBS' other Sunday games this week are Texans-Titans, Chiefs-Jets, Colts-Ja…

The Bills were leading at halftime against the Oakland Raiders and much of the credit was due the defense. After allowing an 81-yard drive on the Raiders' opening possession, the Bills forced three punts and then added a defensive score for a 14-7 lead. As the conversation played out on the halftime show on CBS, Boomer Esiason made this pronouncement: "The Bills defe…

NEW YORK CITY - The grin on the face of CBS news correspondent Jeff Glor is as wide as those of any Buffalo Bills fan going into this season as he talks about his latest “60 Minutes Sports” piece. The Kenmore native was sitting in a Manhattan restaurant last Thursday about 30 minutes after screening the feature he has done on Buffalo Bills owners Terry and Kim Pegula for …
