Here’s a hunch: Gore is the starter, perhaps for the entire season, but Singletary ends up with the most carries. Sending a message to the rookie that just because McCoy was released doesn’t make the job yours just seems like a Sean McDermott thing to do. Sin…

The Buffalo Bills to Carolina Panthers connection continued Sunday as Carolina claimed former Bills wide receiver Ray-Ray McCloud off waivers, according to multiple reports. McCloud, a 2017 sixth-round pick, was cut Saturday as the Bills trimmed to 53 players. McCloud impressed the Bills coaches in training camp and his name was often brought up unprompted. He perhap…

The Buffalo Bills have lost their best defensive playmaker for the rest of the season. Second-year linebacker Matt Milano had surgery Monday after suffering a broken fibula in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s loss to the New York Jets. “I thought he really grew this year,” coach Sean McDermott said of Milano, who has six takeaways this year (three interceptions, three …

Here’s what Sean McDermott had to say a week ago, after his team was penalized 13 times for 80 yards in a victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars. “We can’t ignore those. Whether they’re accurate or not accurate, that’s for another time, but we can’t ignore that and expect to win games going forward. Good football teams don’t beat themselves, and we had opportunities to c…

The offense is historically bad, leading to games feeling like they’re over the minute the team falls behind by tw…

Team owners T…

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…

BALTIMORE – Where is the Buffalo Bills’ secondary that was supposed to challenge for the unofficial crown of “best in the NFL?” It certainly was nowhere to be found inside M&T Bank Stadium on Sunday, where the Baltimore Ravens blew the doors off the Bills, 47-3, in the season opener. “They beat the hell out of us today,” safety Jordan Poyer said of the Ravens. …
