Bobby Johnson is returning to the place he began his NFL coaching career. The Buffalo Bills announced Tuesday they have hired Johnson, who spent last season as assistant offensive line coach of the Indianapolis Colts, as their new offensive line coach. His first coaching position in the league was as the Bills' assistant O-line coach in 2010 and 2011. Johnson replace…

That is the minimum fine for fighting, per the NFL's fine schedule. Additionally, the Associated Press reported that Bills safety Micah Hyde was fined $13,369 for unsportsmanlike conduc…

Lawson, who didn’t speak with reporters after the Bills’ 24-21 victory, gave his version of the brawl th…

With the Jaguars on an NFL-worst seven-game losing streak, the team fired offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett and benched quarterback Blake Bortles on Monday, hours after a 24-21 loss to the Bills dropped Jacksonville to 3-8 following a 3-1 start. The Jaguars rank 22nd in offense and 16th in rushing this season after ranking sixth and first, respectively, last seaso…

The theme of the day was about toughness, about backing down from no one, about giving as good as you get. Heck, even Sean McDermott showed up for his postgame news conference Sunday with spots of blood on the front of his gray sweatshirt. “Part of it’s mine and part of it’s probably a little bit from the scrum there,” the coach said after the Buffalo Bills’ 24-21 victo…

In case you were wondering what the Buffalo Bills missed with Josh Allen out of the lineup -- and more than a few critics were quick to conclude it wasn’t much -- the rookie returned in convincing fashion Sunday. The finishing touch on Allen’s mostly solid performance in the Buffalo Bills’ 24-21 victory against the Jacksonville Jaguars was a 14-yard touchdown run th…

Jaguars defensive tackle Marcell Dareus' on-field return to Buffalo will have to wait. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported early Sunday that Dareus will miss the game against the Bills at New Era Field. He was listed as inactive when the Jaguars submitted their list. Dareus had been listed as questionable with a back injury. He did not practice Wednesday and Thursday but w…

Here are my five takes on the Buffalo Bills’ game against the Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday at New Era Field: 1. Josh Allen’s return at quarterback presents a bit of a wild card for the Bills. Except for that highly impressive first half at Minnesota, he hasn’t done a whole lot to make Bills fans terribly anxious to get him back from the injury to his throwing elbow th…

Quarterback Josh Allen will start Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars at New Era Field, coach Sean McDermott said Friday. Allen has not played since suffering a strained right elbow against the Houston Texans on Oct. 14. He has been a full practice participant all week. "As long as we can get through today, he will start at quarterback," McDermott said before pra…

Analysis

As unreal as it seems, this matchup of underachieving 3-7 performers actually pairs the league’s No. 2 and No. 3 overall defenses. That begs the question: Where is the offense? The slumping Jaguars took a 16-0 third-quarter lead against Pittsburgh last week and then took the rest of the day off in a 20-16 loss. Meanwhile, after failing to score more than 13 points in…

Bills

Despite having spent the past four games watching, Josh Allen won’t be easing his way back into the starting quarterback job he’s expected to reclaim when the Buffalo Bills face the Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday. Offensive coordinator Brian Daboll made it clear Tuesday he would have no hesitation giving the 22-year-old rookie as full a game plan as he would either of his …

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Marcell Dareus stood on the sideline watching the Pittsburgh Steelers drive down the field against his teammates Sunday as time drained off the fourth-quarter clock. The Jacksonville Jaguars’ defensive tackle, the third overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft by the Buffalo Bills, has started all 10 games in his first full season with the reigning AFC So…

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Doug Marrone said Blake Bortles will continue to start at quarterback when his Jacksonville Jaguars attempt to snap a six-game losing streak when they play the Buffalo Bills on Sunday at New Era Field, the first time Marrone will return to Buffalo as a head coach. Marrone was the Bills’ coach in 2013 and ’14, when he led the franchise to a 15-17 rec…
