Micah Hyde couldn’t resist a little trash talking as he met with reporters Thursday to promote his first charity softball game in Buffalo. “I feel like we, as a defense, are going to smash the offense,” Hyde said at Sahlen Field, which will be the site of the June 2 clash of Buffalo Bills teammates and other participants. “We know that the defense is a lot more skilled,…

Micah Hyde is trying his best to remain upbeat, but it isn’t easy. It’s December. For as long as the Buffalo Bills’ safety has been in the NFL, he has known this as a time when every game means a little something extra. Until now. Hyde and his teammates have three games left on the schedule, beginning with Sunday’s encounter with the Detroit Lions at New Era Field…

The voices are always in Don Beebe’s head, sounding as vivid as they did nearly 30 years ago. Marv Levy. Bill Polian. John Butler. They instantly made a believer out of Beebe when, after making a splash at the NFL Scouting Combine by running a 4.25-second 40-yard dash, he joined the Buffalo Bills as a third-round draft pick from Chadron (Neb.) State in 1989. They convin…

Despite being shut out for the first time since 2008, the Buffalo Bills scored again in the TV ratings Sunday. The Bills’ 22-0 loss to the Green Bay Packers had a season-high 35.7 rating on WIVB-TV (Channel 4), which was two-tenths of a point higher than the 35.5 rating for the Bills’ shocking 27-6 upset of the Minnesota Vikings a week earlier. Some of the credit for…

While most of the attention was focused on an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty against Blake Martinez and a potential turnover with about two minutes left in the second quarter, Packers cornerback Jaire Alexander said there was action within a pile of players surrounding Bills quarterback Josh Allen. Alexander told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that Allen elbowed him, l…

GREEN BAY, Wis. – Josh Allen was distraught after his first of three turnovers, an absurd pass across his body into the middle of the field as he was being chased out of bounds, a ball easily intercepted in the end zone by Jaire Alexander. Buffalo Bills coach Sean McDermott was the first to approach his rookie quarterback on the sideline. He didn’t yell as so many Buffa…

Bills

GREEN BAY, Wis. – This time, the Buffalo Bills didn’t send any shock waves through the NFL. They didn't even do enough to generate a tiny ripple. The Bills pretty much played the underdog role to perfection Sunday, with a feeble-looking, 22-0 loss against the heavily favored Green Bay Packers. Seven days after that stunning upset of the Minnesota Vikings, the Bills h…

Buffalo Bills safety Micah Hyde has been declared out of Sunday's game against the Green Bay Packers with a groin injury suffered in the first quarter. Hyde was able to walk off the field after the injury, but appeared to be in some pain. He was examined in the medical tent and then took a seat on the bench, slamming his helmet in frustration. He then wrapped his head i…

Since childhood, Mark Murphy has been on the move. But of the many stops between Fulton, N.Y., where he was born 63 years ago, and Green Bay, Wis., where he serves as president and CEO of the Packers, none left a more lasting connection than Western New York. Murphy was a sophomore in high school when his family moved to Clarence in 1970, yet he still has many friend…

Here are my five takes on the Buffalo Bills’ game against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field on Sunday: 1. Let’s not make the same mistake as a week ago and give the opponent too much credit, or at least far more than it probably deserves. Let’s also not make the same mistake of giving too little credit to the Bills, who appear to be finding their way after a slu…

A recording of the Buffalo Bills’ next two opponents playing each other is shown on monitors this week in the locker room, the unusual result of the game overshadowed by a single, increasingly familiar call. The Green Bay Packers are leading the Minnesota Vikings, 29-21, with less than two minutes remaining in regulation last Sunday, when Packers linebacker Clay Matthew…

The Bills signed free agent offensive tackle Marshall Newhouse to a one-year contract Monday. Here are five things about Newhouse: Well-traveled: The Bills will be his fifth team. He was drafted by the Packers in the fifth round of the 2010 draft. He was with Green Bay from 2010 to 2013 (including winning Super Bowl XLV against Pittsburgh), then with Cincinnati for a se…

The Green Bay Packers settled on a successor to defensive coordinator Dom Capers with the hiring of former Bills defensive coordinator Mike Pettine, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported Tuesday night. The nine-day search ended with the former Cleveland Browns head coach getting the job over Packers assistants Darren Perry, Joe Whitt Jr. and Winston Moss. The Packe…
