This week's Bills Mailbag starts with quarterback talk. Not about Josh Allen, though. It also touches on what the team's draft plans should be, whether it would be wise to take a run at a premier pass rusher and plenty more. Let's dive right in ... 4th and 27 asks: The 2018 Eagles and '19 Titans proved the wisdom of having a quality, experienced backup quarterback to…

The Carolina-to-Buffalo pipeline could deliver again. The Bills hosted tight end Greg Olsen on a free-agent visit in the last few days. Olsen, 34, was recently by the Carolina Panthers, but has generated plenty of interest on the open market. In addition to the Bills, he’s also planning visits to the Washington Redskins and Seattle Seahawks. We saw last year when the…

Sean McDermott and Brandon Beane will meet with the media Tuesday for their season-ending press conference, earlier than either of them would have preferred. The Buffalo Bills’ head coach and general manager will recap the 2019 season – one that ended Saturday with a 22-19 overtime loss to the Houston Texans in an AFC wild-card playoff game – while surely feeling like t…

Sean McDermott did his best to avoid them, but injuries still impacted the Buffalo Bills in their regular-season finale Sunday. The team's head coach chose to sit several starters in a meaningless game against the New York Jets at New Era Field. Cornerback Tre’Davious White, running back Devin Singletary, tight end Dawson Knox and wide receivers John Brown and Cole B…

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – Lorenzo Alexander called the Buffalo Bills’ loss to the New England Patriots on Saturday the “same, old story.” “We have to figure out how to make a play when we need to,” Alexander said after his team’s 24-17 loss at Gillette Stadium – a refrain that’s been echoed by too many Bills to count the last two decades. “I know I had a couple chances to do …

Bills

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – Apparently, there are some things that simply aren't meant to be. The Buffalo Bills beating the New England Patriots is one of them, regardless of any alleged vulnerability the beasts of the AFC East might be showing. "It's frustrating," linebacker Lorenzo Alexander said. He knew he was speaking for more than himself and his teammates and coaches …

Bills

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – So, the New England Patriots win the AFC East. Again. As nauseating as that might be for Buffalo Bills fans, there is some good news: The result of Saturday’s game probably wasn’t going to matter. Sure, a win would have kept the Bills alive in the division race. Those hopes are over now with New England’s 24-17 victory at Gillette Stadium. A me…

This week’s Bills Mailbag leads off with a look at the Pro Bowl snubs and also touches on what the approach to the final two weeks of the regular season should be for the playoff-bound Bills. Let’s get right to it … Reverend Bob asks: Only one Pro Bowler, Jay? Who else deserved to go in your opinion? Jay: Jordan Phillips probably has the best case. His 9.5 sacks are …

When the Baltimore Ravens visit the Buffalo Bills on Sunday at New Era Field, it will be the second time Josh Allen and Lamar Jackson have opposed each other as NFL quarterbacks. It’s forgivable if you’re forgetting the first. Allow us to refresh your memory: Allen and the Bills opened the 2018 season in Baltimore. It was a game all involved on the Buffalo side would…

Devin Singletary was surrounded by microphones and cameras as reporters eagerly asked about his mentor, Frank Gore, passing Barry Sanders for the third-most rushing yards in NFL history. Gore butted in, selflessly imploring everyone to ask about the rookie’s career day. “Coming in, I told Frank, ‘Let’s go get them 46 yards,’ ” Singletary said. “He told me, ‘Let’s get…

There's no ignoring that massive asterisk next to the Buffalo Bills' 37-20 victory against the Miami Dolphins. It was the best showing of the season by the Bills' offense, but it was against the Dolphins, who are one of the NFL's worst teams in every way imaginable. It was the first time the Bills generated a point total teams with legitimate postseason aspirations m…

You won't know how much you'll miss the Albright-Knox until it's gone (temporarily, at least). At 5 p.m. Sunday, the Elmwood Avenue art gallery – an institution that has put Buffalo on the grid internationally – will close for two years to execute a major expansion project. For those hungry for a bite of culture on the first Friday night of the month, or those who wa…

In the end, Josh Allen did more right than wrong. He led another fourth-quarter comeback, the fifth of his 17 career NFL starts. He led a pivotal 98-yard drive after Tre'Davious White's game-altering interception at the 2-yard line. He had two touchdown throws and a passer rating of 111.4. Nevertheless, as Allen stood behind the lectern in the interview room after th…

This week’s Bills Mailbag starts with a look at what the injury to Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes might mean for the AFC playoff race. It’s also heavy on what the Bills should do at the NFL trade deadline. Let’s get right to it … Chris Mazella asks: Who would you rank as the top five teams in the AFC now with Patrick Mahomes' status uncertain? Would you put the Bill…

Analysis

NFL teams are fond of looking at the schedule in quarters. When the Buffalo Bills do so, they’ll come away feeling awfully good about the first one of the 2019 season – even if it ended on a sour note. The Bills went 3-1 in the first quarter of this season, a record that has them in a postseason spot if the season ended today. The one loss came Sunday against the New…
