Although they have the second-best record in the AFC, the Bil…

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.

Dawson Knox doesn’t go out of his way to seek attention. So the Buffalo Bills tight end was a little surprised – and a bit shy – about all the recognition he got for his “beast mode” run-after-catch play that helped the team beat the Cincinnati Bengals two weeks ago. The NFL Network’s “Good Morning Football” show gave the play its weekly “Angry Run Award.” And show c…
