It didn’t rise to the level of Wade Phillips benching Doug Flutie for Rob Johnson, but Sean McDermott was still willing to make a rather significant change to his game-day roster heading into the postseason. McDermott played wide receiver Duke Williams against the Houston Texans in an AFC wild-card game earlier this month. Williams had been a healthy inactive for eight …

HOUSTON – It took a while for the expected showdown between Tre’Davious White and DeAndre Hopkins to heat up. When it did, the Buffalo Bills’ All-Pro cornerback got the early advantage. Eventually, though, the Texans’ All-Pro receiver – and his quarterback – got the last laugh. Hopkins beat White for a 41-yard completion in the fourth quarter Saturday, setting up the…

HOUSTON — The Buffalo Bills will be without starting cornerback Levi Wallace on Saturday. Wallace will miss the wild-card playoff game against the Texans at NRG Stadium because of a sprained ankle, meaning Kevin Johnson will start opposite Tre'Davious White. The Bills also made a big move at wide receiver. Duke Williams will play, while Robert Foster is a healthy ina…

Bills

The Buffalo Bills showed confidence in cornerback Kevin Johnson to start Sunday’s game against the New York Jets. With Pro Bowl cornerback Tre’Davious White sitting out, the Bills had Johnson – not Levi Wallace – shadow the Jets’ most dangerous receiver all over the field in the first quarter. Now it seems certain the Bills will be showing more confidence in Johnson …

Analysis

When the Bills run: Don’t expect to see a lot of rookie Devin Singletary. That means Frank Gore and maybe even T.J. Yeldon will get the bulk of the work. It would be meaningful if the Bills could get Gore going heading into the playoffs. He’s coming off the first game of his 15-year career in which he did not log a single rushing attempt. Yeldon, meanwhile, has been a heal…

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…

Bills

The Buffalo Bills' continue to enjoy remarkably good health. The team has just one player – right tackle Ty Nsekhe – out because of injury for Sunday's showdown against the Baltimore Ravens at New Era Field. Nsekhe has missed the past three games because of an ankle injury. That means the Bills' other six inactives are all healthy. They are: running back T.J. Yeldon,…

It starts with why Sean McDermott isn't getting more love and then hits on plenty more, including who has the best chance at making the Pro Bowl, what's up with claiming a kicker and whether the team should be worried about losing one or both of its coordinators this offseason. Let's get to it ... Robert Goodwin asks: Why so…

Bills

The third quarter of the Buffalo Bills’ schedule played out exactly as the first two, with one key difference. The Bills went 3-1 again, the same as the first two quarters of the schedule, improving their record to 9-3 on the season. The difference, though, is how they looked doing it. There was no squeaking by the New York Jets or New York Giants, no second-half com…
