MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – Sometimes, it takes a voice players aren't accustomed to hearing to deliver an impactful speech. In the case of Tremaine Edmunds, it's a voice his Buffalo Bills teammates rarely hear. That went a long way toward allowing the second-year middle linebacker to instantly grab everyone's attention when he decided to speak during a team meeting Saturday …

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 …

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – There are no major surprises on the Buffalo Bills' list of inactives for Sunday's game against the Dolphins at Hard Rock Stadium. Running back T.J. Yeldon, wide receiver Duke Williams, tight end Tommy Sweeney, defensive tackle Vincent Taylor, safety Dean Marlowe and offensive linemen Ryan Bates and Ike Boettger won't play against Miami. The bigg…

Bills defensive lineman Jerry Hughes missed practice Friday with a groin injury. Hughes was added to the injury report Thursday and listed as limited. He is deemed questionable for Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins. Tight end Dawson Knox, who missed Thursday's practice with knee soreness, was back on the practice field Friday as a full participant. This sto…

The Buffalo Bills aren’t getting what they need from Stephen Hauschka. That was abundantly clear last week, when the team’s veteran kicker missed a pair of field goals in a 19-16 loss to the Cleveland Browns. Hauschka’s issues, however, date back to well before last Sunday. In his last 14 games, the kicker known as “Hausch Money” has been anything but, going 14 of 24…

CLEVELAND – The ball bounced just once at the 30-yard line, and Jerry Hughes was on it for the scoop and score, the Buffalo Bills defensive end returning Baker Mayfield’s apparent fumble for a game-sealing touchdown against the Cleveland Browns. Hughes was all alone as he raced toward the goal line, nothing between him and a double-digit lead with less than four minutes…

Trent Murphy and his girlfriend once had to walk 10 miles to find cell phone reception after his old Jeep broke down in the Arizona desert. The Bills’ defensive end laughs about it now. “We were very well-prepared for the situation,” Murphy said, “but she’s not from Arizona and she didn’t know – she thought mountain lions hunt in prides like on safari, like African l…

The Buffalo Bills’ offense went three-and-out once again, their fans were already streaming toward the parking lots, and after a terrible punt sailed out of bounds at midfield, the defense tried to muster the will to give a damn. “Guys were out there talking, ‘Hey, let’s finish this game strong. It’s going to go a long way,’ ” safety Jordan Poyer said in Buffalo’s sombe…

Grading the Buffalo Bills in their 31-13 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday at New Era Field: RUNNING GAME: D Quarterback Josh Allen was the team’s leading rusher. That’s not a good thing. Allen gained 45 yards on eight carries, with a long gain of 14 yards. He lost a crucial fumble on a designed run in the second quarter. A lot of that production came on scra…

John Brown is on pace to do something that hasn't been done in Buffalo in more than a dozen years. After making five catches for 83 yards during Sunday's 31-21 win over the Miami Dolphins at New Era Field, Brown has 473 receiving yards in the Bills' 5-1 start. That puts him on pace for 1,261 yards this season. If he gets there, he'd be the first Bills receiver to top 1,…

Buffalo Bills safety Micah Hyde was as surprised as anyone after he jumped, caught the Miami Dolphins’ attempted onside kick, pirouetted midair, landed on his feet and was tackled by exactly no one. “I literally caught the ball and I was like, ‘Yo, there’s nobody here.’ And the end zone was just like, ‘Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhh,’ ” Hyde said, making a noise one might expect if…

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 …

Bills

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…

Analysis

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…

Here are my five takes for Sunday's game between the Buffalo Bills and New England Patriots at New Era Field. 1. Don't let go of the lingering anger from the Bengals' game. Coaches and players always like to preach about the importance of forgetting the past and focusing on what's ahead. The Bills should do the opposite this week. Plenty of players, especially on def…
