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 …

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…

Mitch Morse had an interesting description of Brian Daboll this week. The Buffalo Bills’ center was asked about the idea that the team's only true identity on offense is that they don’t have an identity, and what that says about the coordinator. “I think it says he's somewhat of a lunatic, you know what I mean?” Morse said. Um, not exactly. That requires a little …

Grading the Bills in their 13-6 loss to the New York Jets on Sunday at New Era Field … Running game: C- It’s never a good thing when your leading rusher is a wide receiver, as was the case Sunday. That’s what happens when you sit your best running back, which the Bills did with rookie Devin Singletary. Receiver Isaiah McKenzie took a couple of jet sweeps for 30 yards…

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…

This week’s Bills Mailbag leads off with a hypothetical – What would the top 10 of the 2018 draft look like if teams had a do-over? It also looks ahead to next season and addresses the weekly question of when Duke Williams will get back into the lineup. Let’s dive right in … Dave Universal asks: Re-draft the top 10 from 2018. Jay: 1. Cleveland – QB Lamar Jackson. 2. …

Lock it up. There's nothing else for the Buffalo Bills to consider. Beat the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday night and secure a spot in the playoffs. Never mind still having one of those last two games, at New England on Dec. 21 or at home against the New York Jets on Dec. 29, to get the win that will punch the postseason ticket. It needs to happen Sunday night at Hein…

The Buffalo Bills have responded after each of their first three losses in 2019. If they can do so again after their fourth loss – which came Sunday at New Era Field to the Baltimore Ravens – they’ll be headed to the postseason. The Bills have not had a two-game losing streak this year. After falling to New England in Week 4, the Bills came back to beat the Tenne…

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…

This week’s Bills Mailbag is the Thanksgiving leftovers version. I’m thankful for the questions you all send my way each week, but sometimes can’t fit them all in. Here, we clean up the leftovers, starting with a pair of questions dealing with Josh Allen’s use of the no-huddle offense. Let’s dig in … Michael Lenhard asks: The game is SO much different now than when J…

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…

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – Grading the Buffalo Bills in their 37-20 win over the Miami Dolphins on Sunday at Hard Rock Stadium: RUNNING GAME: A It started well, with Devin Singletary ripping off a 22-yard run on the game’s first play from scrimmage. Short yardage, an area the Bills had struggled in earlier this season, was a strength. Quarterback Josh Allen converted a pa…

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – Brian Daboll switched things up Sunday – and we’re not just talking his facial hair. The Buffalo Bills’ offensive coordinator’s familiar beard was gone before the game against the Miami Dolphins, replaced by a mustache. That led to some jokes on social media about the Bills winning by “a million.” They didn’t score quite that many, but the 37 they …

Bills

The Buffalo Bills’ clock management at the end of Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Browns at FirstEnergy Stadium was confusing, to say the least. Coach Sean McDermott did his best to offer some sort of an explanation Monday. “The plans weren’t really to huddle at that point. It was to go to the line and get the third-down call off and then save the timeout there,”…
