The Buffalo Bills’ clock management at the end of Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Browns at FirstEnergy Stadium was confusing, to say the least. Coach Sean McDermott did his best to offer some sort of an explanation Monday. “The plans weren’t really to huddle at that point. It was to go to the line and get the third-down call off and then save the timeout there,”…

CLEVELAND – The Buffalo Bills signed kicker Stephen Hauschka to a two-year contract extension before the 2019 season started with moments like Sunday in mind. Trailing by three points against the Cleveland Browns at FirstEnergy Stadium, Hauschka came onto the field with 22 seconds remaining. Convert a 53-yard field goal, and the Bills and Browns likely go to overtime. …

CLEVELAND – The Buffalo Bills are sticking with the same set of wide receivers in Week 10. That means Duke Williams is a healthy inactive for the second straight game. The Bills will go with John Brown, Cole Beasley, Isaiah McKenzie, Robert Foster and Andre Roberts at receiver against the Browns at FirstEnergy Stadium. The Bills did not list any players on their fina…

When the Bills run: More Devin Singletary, please. The Bills’ rookie had his breakout game last week against Washington, rushing 20 times for 95 yards and a touchdown. Singletary got nearly double the carries as veteran Frank Gore (11 carries, 15 yards), and there’s no good reason why that should change moving forward. Washington ranked 28th against the run coming into Wee…

Josh Allen led scoring drives on the Bills’ first three possessions and didn’t turn the ball over, despite fumbling twice, in a 24-9 victory against the Washington Redskins on Sunday at New Era Field. “We’re moving the ball, scoring points and ultimately winning football games,” Allen said. “That’s all I care about.” Allen completed 14 of 20 pass attempts for 160 yar…

Grading the Buffalo Bills in their 24-9 win over the Washington Redskins on Sunday at New Era Field … RUNNING GAME: C- Devin Singletary keeps it from being an F, but this was not a good day on the ground. How many times can a team make gaining a single yard look like the hardest thing to do in football? The Bills continue to count the ways. Singletary rushed 20 times …

Leslie Frazier was confident the Buffalo Bills would fix what was broken with their run defense. Through the first half Sunday against the Washington Redskins, he looked to be grossly mistaken. A week after allowing 218 rushing yards to the Philadelphia Eagles, the Bills were in the process of being gashed again. Washington running back Adrian Peterson, the 34-year-o…

The Buffalo Bills continue to look for the right mix at wide receiver. On Sunday at New Era Field, that means Duke Williams is the odd man out. Williams, who made his professional debut in Week 5 against Tennessee and caught the go-ahead touchdown pass, will be a healthy inactive against the Washington Redskins. Williams suffered a shoulder injury against Miami in We…

Analysis

When the Bills run: The rush offense continues to be strong on a per-play basis, averaging 4.88 yards per carry, which ranks fifth in the league. The team is coming off its worst performance of the season, however, held to less than 100 yards for the first time in a 31-13 loss to the Eagles. On a day when it was clear the run game was going to take priority because of the …

Grading the Buffalo Bills in their 31-13 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday at New Era Field: RUNNING GAME: D Quarterback Josh Allen was the team’s leading rusher. That’s not a good thing. Allen gained 45 yards on eight carries, with a long gain of 14 yards. He lost a crucial fumble on a designed run in the second quarter. A lot of that production came on scra…

Analysis

When the Bills run: Veteran Frank Gore continues to lead the Buffalo Bills in rushing, with 388 yards on 86 carries. Gore has faced eight-plus defenders in the box on 38.4% of his rushing attempts this season, according to the NFL’s Next Gen stats, which makes his 4.5-yards-per-carry average even more impressive. The Bills eased Devin Singletary back into action last week …

John Brown is on pace to do something that hasn't been done in Buffalo in more than a dozen years. After making five catches for 83 yards during Sunday's 31-21 win over the Miami Dolphins at New Era Field, Brown has 473 receiving yards in the Bills' 5-1 start. That puts him on pace for 1,261 yards this season. If he gets there, he'd be the first Bills receiver to top 1,…

Running game: C+ Even with Buffalo Bills rookie Devin Singletary back in the lineup, it was veteran Frank Gore who continued to handle the bulk of the rushing duties. Gore gained 55 yards on 11 carries against his former team. He has 388 yards on the season and is on pace for 1,034. For a 36-year-old, that’s impressive. Quarterback Josh Allen, who ran wild against the M…
