If the Buffalo Bills have any hope of making the playoffs, they must win out. The first step comes at 1 p.m. Sunday against the Washington Redskins at FedEx Field. Here are all the details you need to know before kickoff, plus five things I'll be looking for: • TV: Fox. Announcers: Kenny Albert (play by play), Daryl Johnston (color analyst). • Radio: Bills Radio Networ…

The Buffalo Bills’ wide receivers have dominated headlines in recent weeks. Unfortunately, it’s not because of anything they’ve done on the field. Both Sammy Watkins and Percy Harvin have lit up social media and talk-radio airwaves for situations that have nothing to do with catching footballs. First, Watkins made waves when his comments about wanting more targets in th…

It looked for all the world like the Buffalo Bills' defense was going to give up a back-breaking touchdown to start the third quarter against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday. But a goal-line stand, with an assist from some peculiar player usage by the Jaguars, prevented that, keeping the Bills in the game. Jacksonville drove down to the Bills' 1-yard line in 13 plays …

Jerry Hughes showed in the first quarter Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars in London’s Wembley Stadium how a defensive end can impact a game without recording a sack. Hughes drew a holding penalty against Jaguars left tackle Luke Joeckel on Jacksonville’s first offensive series, erasing what was a first-down throw from Blake Bortles to Allen Hurns. That set up a thi…

OK, so this post is pretty easy this week. The Buffalo Bills have ruled out five players from Sunday's game against the New York Giants because of injury.

That leaves just t…

Each week for the rest of the 2015 season on the BN Blitz blog, we'll look ahead to the Bills' upcoming game by projecting which seven players will be declared inactive by the team. Two of those seven players are easy – safety Aaron Williams and wide receiver Marquise Goodwin have been ruled out of the game by coach Rex Ryan. Williams has a neck injury and Goodwin is reco…

Doug Whaley has lived up to his word. The Buffalo Bills' general manager said at the NFL Scouting Combine last month that he wanted to have all of his team's needs filled before heading into the draft. Whaley didn't even wait for the start of free agency to do that, acquiring running back LeSean McCoy and quarterbacks Matt Cassel in trades, giving up linebacker Kiko Alon…

Veteran tight end Lee Smith will leave the Buffalo Bills to sign with the Oakland Raiders as an unrestricted free agent, according to a tweet Tuesday afternoon from ESPN's Adam Schefter. Smith, 27, played the past four seasons with the Bills, appearing in 56 games with 34 starts. Primarily a blocker, he made 20 receptions for 144 yards and three touchdowns. Smith was also…

It's fair to wonder if Marquise Goodwin has a spot with the Buffalo Bills moving forward. Goodwin is a healthy inactive today for the season finale against the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium, the sixth game he's missed this season either because of injury or a decision by the coaching staff. Goodwin ends the season with a hard-to-believe stat line of just one c…
