The Buffalo Bills needed someone to step up and make a play Sunday. Tre’Davious White answered the call not once, but twice. White’s two second-half takeaways proved pivotal in a much-harder-than-expected, 31-21 win over the Miami Dolphins at New Era Field. White first intercepted old friend Ryan Fitzpatrick in the third quarter to stop a 10-minute Miami drive that r…

The Buffalo Bills roll into their Week 6 bye week with an impressive 4-1 record and are backed by one of the NFL’s best defensive units. Bills' opponents are averaging only 14 points per game behind a 77.6 overall team defensive grade, seventh in the NFL, according to Pro Football Focus. However, before we can assume Buffalo will land a playoff spot, all eyes will be o…

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – At one point in the second half Sunday, the Buffalo Bills had lost five starters to injury. Out went veteran center Mitch Morse, and in went veteran offensive lineman Spencer Long, who has 44 career starts. Out went rookie right tackle Cody Ford – who was pulling full-time duty with veteran Ty Nsekhe out because of an ankle injury – and in went Rya…

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…

Analysis

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…

When the Bills run: With rookie Devin Singletary returning to practice on a limited basis Thursday, there is some added intrigue here. The Bills held up just fine without Singletary in Week 3, rushing for 175 yards against the Bengals, but it will be a much bigger challenge against New England. Even if Singletary plays, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see the Bills closely mo…

It also hits on depth at cornerback, the right tackle rotation and compares the defenses of the Bills and Patriots. Let’s dive in … $pastic5ive asks: If they’re not going to use Robert Foster, why not cut him and bring up Duke Williams? Jay: Ask yourself this: If th…

Overall Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen completed 23 of 36 attempts for a completion percentage of 63.8% and rushed the ball nine times for 46 yards in a come-from-behind, 21-17 victory against the Cincinnati Bengals. It was his uncanny ability to run and move in the pocket that ultimately made the difference in the final minutes. Allen’s turbulent performance earned…

This week’s Buffalo Bills mailbag is loaded with questions about what happens at running back without Devin Singletary and tight end without Tyler Kroft, a look ahead to the trade deadline and what the team has planned to honor the life of superfan Pancho Billa this weekend. A quick note: We had more questions than I could get to this week, so if I felt like they could …

Here is the scouting report for Sunday's game between the Bills and the Cincinnati Bengals at New Era Field. When the Bills run: Who will run is the big question after rookie running back Devin Singletary missed practice at the start of the week with a hamstring injury.

There’s a strong case for the Buffalo Bills keeping wide receiver Duke Williams, the former Auburn standout and Canadian Football League star, when the team cuts to a 53-man roster by the NFL deadline at 4 p.m. Saturday. And he’s made it himself. Williams finished the preseason with eight catches for 71 yards and a team-high two touchdowns, getting reps with the star…

These aren't attention-getting times for Robert Foster. Not like last fall, when the wide receiver made a significant splash in the second half of his rookie season with the Buffalo Bills by having at least one catch of 25-plus yards in six consecutive games. The last Bill to have such a streak was Jerry Butler in 1985-86. Foster also turned heads by becoming the first un…

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Josh Allen garnered the headlines Friday night for good reason. The Buffalo Bills’ second-year quarterback was superb against the Carolina Panthers, completing 9 of 11 passes for 102 yards. Allen wasn’t the Bills’ only quarterback to play lights out, though. Backup Matt Barkley had his second straight stellar preseason performance, going 8 of 10 for…

Let’s get right to it … @BigD50786709 asks: Why does everyone say Christian Wade can’t make the tea…
