ARLINGTON, Texas – Just call it the Cole Beasley Revenge Game. The Buffalo Bills’ wide receiver did his best all week to downplay his return to Dallas, saying that it was simply the next game on the schedule.

The Buffalo Bills aren’t getting what they need from Stephen Hauschka. That was abundantly clear last week, when the team’s veteran kicker missed a pair of field goals in a 19-16 loss to the Cleveland Browns. Hauschka’s issues, however, date back to well before last Sunday. In his last 14 games, the kicker known as “Hausch Money” has been anything but, going 14 of 24…

When the Bills run: A week after giving Devin Singletary a career-high 20 carries, the rookie got just eight against the Browns, inviting another week of second-guessing of offensive coordinator Brian Daboll.

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.
