INDIANAPOLIS – Things can always get worse with the Buffalo Bills. Star running back LeSean McCoy suffered a concussion Sunday during the team’s embarrassing 37-5 loss to the Indianapolis Colts. It’s the latest blow to a beleaguered offense that is the worst in the NFL. McCoy was hit along the Colts’ sideline by Indianapolis cornerback Kenny Moore II on Buffalo’s sec…

Grading the Bills RUNNING GAME: C The Buffalo Bills were balanced, rushing 27 times and passing 29 times. LeSean McCoy had a second straight solid, but not spectacular, game. He finished with 73 yards on 16 carries. Rookie quarterback Josh Allen scrambled four times for 20 yards, including one that went for 11 yards. Backup running back Chris Ivory couldn’t get much …

HOUSTON – The matchup Sunday between Bills cornerback Tre’Davious White and Texans receiver DeAndre Hopkins was highly anticipated. So, too, will be the rematch, whenever that happens. White was outspoken after the Bills’ 20-13 loss against Houston at NRG Stadium. “I feel like I won the battle,” he said. “I mean, what he have, two passes for like 30-something yard…

Here are my five takes on the Buffalo Bills’ game against the Houston Texans Sunday at NRG Stadium: 1. It’s vital that the Bills again put the game on the line … the offensive line, that is. The Bills finally recognized the benefit of staying committed to the run in last Sunday’s 13-12 victory against the Tennessee Titans. Challenging their blockers to be tougher and…

Grading the Bills RUNNING GAME: A- Offensive coordinator Brian Daboll listened to the fans, and head coach Sean McDermott, as the Bills ran the ball 43 times, a season high. Although the team’s yards per carry was not dynamic – 3.3. – the offense stuck with it, and grinded out the needed yards at the end to get in position for the game-winning field goal. LeSean McCo…

What a change from a year ago at this time. The 2017 Buffalo Bills season got off to a surprising 3-1 start, capturing the attention and imagination of the team’s long-suffering fans. That hot start went a long way toward the Bills ending a 17-year playoff drought. Fast forward to today, though, and it’s a different story. The Bills have started 2018 with a 1-3 recor…

GREEN BAY, Wis. – Grading offensive line play in the NFL can be subjective. Without knowing the assignments of each member, it’s hard to say who is at fault when a play breaks down. There are some measures to grade line play, though, and none of them are particularly kind to the Buffalo Bills right now. Rookie quarterback Josh Allen was under siege Sunday in a 22-0 l…

Grading the Bills RUNNING GAME: F LeSean McCoy’s rushing totals this season: 22, 39, 24. As a team, the Buffalo Bills rushed for 58 yards on 16 carries. Through a quarter of the season, quarterback Josh Allen remains the team’s leading rusher, with 31 more yards on the ground than McCoy. That’s obviously a big problem. The offensive line got no push on the first seri…

GREEN BAY, Wis. – LeSean McCoy returned Sunday, but it didn’t make a bit of difference for the Buffalo Bills. It’s now a quarter of the way through the 2018 season, and McCoy has 85 rushing yards. In four games. Yes, he missed one of those games because of injury, but that doesn’t lessen the concern about what’s happened in the other three. McCoy had 24 yards on just…

MINNEAPOLIS – Micah Hyde has come to expect what he saw Sunday from Tre’Davious White. “I told him in the offseason he can be the best corner in this league,” the Buffalo Bills’ safety said of his second-year teammate Sunday. “Like coach says all the time, it's a process, we understand that, but he's been putting in the work and I think he's mentally ready to take that …

MINNEAPOLIS – Chris Ivory learned he would start in place of LeSean McCoy late in the week, he said in the locker room after the Buffalo Bills’ stunning 27-6 victory against the heavily favored Minnesota Vikings on Sunday at U.S. Bank Stadium. The veteran running back ended up leading the team in rushing and receiving yards, finishing with 126 total yards from scrimmage…

Bills

MINNEAPOLIS – The Buffalo Bills will be without their top offensive weapon Sunday. Running back LeSean McCoy was declared inactive for the Week 3 game against Minnesota. McCoy went through an on-field workout before the game, but wasn't ready for the game. He's dealing with cracked rib cartilage suffered a week ago when center Ryan Groy landed on top of him. Joining …

The Buffalo Bills’ defense looked like an entirely different unit in the second half Sunday. After getting smoked to the tune of 284 yards and 28 points in the first half of the home opener at New Era Field, head coach Sean McDermott took over play-calling duties from defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier. The results were immediate: The Bills held Los Angles to 65 to…
