Jordan Phillips rightfully took the defensive spotlight in Sunday’s victory against the Tennessee Titans. The rest of the Buffalo Bills’ defensive line also played a dominant game to help the team improve to 4-1. The Bills got strong games from Jerry Hughes, Lorenzo Alexander and Ed Oliver – even though he did not have a hurry in pass rushing. It all started with …

Running game: B- It came alive at the end. Taking over with 4:12 left in the fourth quarter, the Buffalo Bills were able to run out the clock thanks to the ground game. After Frank Gore was stopped for a 1-yard loss on first down, T.J. Yeldon ripped off an 11-yard gain on second down to move the chains. Gore then went for 11 yards and followed that with a 19-yard gain. Af…

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…

Running game: B Buffalo Bills running back Frank Gore is something else. He surpassed 15,000 career rushing yards, finishing with 109 yards on just 17 carries. The 36-year-old averaged 6.4 yards per rush, and hit his milestone with a classic, 41-yard run in which he knifed through the middle of the New England Patriots’ defense and bounced off of multiple tackle attempts.…

Pro Football Focus will be contributing to BNblitz.com all season long.  While the offense has done enough to keep the Bills unbeaten through three weeks, the defense has been downright dominant, limiting their opponents to less than 16 points per game. Among the standout playmakers on defense so far has been first-round draft pick Ed Oliver, the defensive tackle ch…

The Buffalo Bills’ depth along the defensive line took a hit Monday. Coach Sean McDermott announced that second-year defensive tackle Harrison Phillips suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his knee Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals at New Era Field. He will miss the rest of the 2019 season. “Unfortunate,” McDermott said. “A young player that's been devel…

The Buffalo Bills have wasted little time in getting their rookie class on the field. Through the first two weeks of the season, the Bills are one of only two teams in the NFL to have at least five rookies take 20 snaps or more in Weeks 1 and 2. The Oakland Raiders are the other. The Raiders have seven rookies who are taking at least 25% of the offensive or defensive…

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – John Brown and Cole Beasley were expected to add a boost to the Buffalo Bills’ passing game. Through two weeks, however they’ve done more than that. They’ve carried it. Brown and Beasley were again quarterback Josh Allen’s favorite targets Sunday in a 28-14 victory over the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium. Brown was targeted eight times and…

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – Cody Ford wasn’t having it. It was bad enough that quarterback Josh Allen was hit, perhaps a split-second late, after throwing the ball away on third down. But when New York Giants linebacker Lorenzo Carter stood there, towering over the Bills’ young franchise quarterback, who had led Buffalo to three consecutive touchdown drives, it was offen…

This week’s Bills Mailbag touches on Devin Singletary’s usage, Ed Oliver’s playing time, the national opinion on Josh Allen and much more. Let’s dive right into it … Erin Moran asks: Is Devin Singletary going to have a bigger role this week? Sam Ruggiero asks: 1. Will the Bills feature Devin Singletary this week versus a weak Giants’ run defense or is it running back…

The Bills travel to MetLife Stadium for a second consecutive game, this time to face the New York Giants on Sunday at 1 p.m. When the Bills run: Give. Devin. Singletary. The. Ball. More. After he ran for 70 yards on four carries against the Jets, it’s clear the Bills’ prized rookie running back can produce at the NFL level. Coach Sean McDermott said Wednesday that Frank…

The Buffalo Bills came out of Sunday’s game relatively healthy and are awaiting further word on the hamstring injury to Taron Johnson. Coach Sean McDermott told reporters on Monday that there was nothing definite yet and he was still undergoing evaluation. Wide receiver/kick returner Andre Roberts, who did not play against the New York Jets on Sunday, is “heading in …

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – The stat sheet says Ed Oliver had a quiet professional debut Sunday for the Buffalo Bills. The film review likely will tell a far different story. Oliver, the Bills’ prized first-round draft pick, finished with two tackles and one quarterback hit in a 17-16 victory over the New York Jets on Sunday at MetLife Stadium. Those numbers don’t fully …
