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…

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…

A new year has so far not brought new results for the Buffalo Bills’ special teams. The “third phase of the game” was one of the main reasons the team lost to New England on Sunday. The Bills gave up a blocked punt that was returned for a touchdown and missed a 49-yard field goal at the end of the first half, plays that proved pivotal in a 16-10 loss at New Era Field…

Dion Dawkins didn’t choose to go to school and play football at Temple University. Temple, he says, chose him. The college in North Philadelphia captured his heart and was where his talent belonged. But the start of the relationship between Dawkins and the college that helped make him into an NFL product wasn't easy. Dawkins is now 25 years old and a third-year of…

It’s taken Josh Allen a dozen career starts to do something it took his predecessors years to accomplish.

The message plastered on TVs throughout One Bills Drive on Thursday was unmistakable. A tweet from NFL Network’s Kimberly Jones that conveyed New York Giants coach Pat Shurmur’s thoughts on Josh Allen before the 2018 draft appeared on screen. It read: “Pat Shurmur said before the 2018 draft, #NYG thought QB Josh Allen ‘had a chance to be a starter’ in the NFL. Seems lik…

Of course, the odds factor into that – a bet on the Bills to win the AFC East will pay way…

SPARTANBURG, S.C. – The play of Dion Dawkins has been a pleasant positive development in a summer of uncertainty for the Buffalo Bills’ offensive line. Dawkins, who has held a lock on the starting left-tackle job, turned in another two solid days of practice against the Carolina Panthers Tuesday and Wednesday at Wofford College. Dawkins repeatedly steered Carolina ed…

Ryan Bates has learned quickly that the NFL is in business. One minute, the former Philadelphia Eagles’ rookie offensive lineman is getting ready to go for dinner and a movie with his girlfriend. The next, his phone rings and he’s a member of the Buffalo Bills. Bates was traded to the Bills by the Eagles on Friday in exchange for defensive end Eli Harold. On Sunday, …

The Buffalo Bills continue to search for the right combination along their offensive line.

A free-agent addition from the Raiders, Feliciano has taken most of his snaps at guard during training camp, but the Bills elec…

PITTSFORD – The Buffalo Bills pretty much devoted the offseason and a sizable chunk of cash to trying to improve their offensive line. It was sound, sensible strategy given the unit's horrific showing last year. New center. New guards. New tackles. A facelift of mammoth proportions that figured to result in a minimum of four new starters. At the moment, though, the p…
