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…

Through four games of the 2019 NFL season one thing is definitely clear in Buffalo – the Bills’ secondary is elite. That was showcased last week as the Bills held Tom Brady and the New England Patriots' offense to only nine points. What’s more impressive is that Buffalo held Brady and Co. to 18 completions on 39 pass attempts for 150 yards passing and an interception. W…

It’s been a long time since Dawson Knox found the end zone. Like, a really long time. You have to go back to 2013, when Knox was a gangly junior for Brentwood Academy in Brentwood, Tenn. He would suffer an ankle injury in the first game of his senior year, then played three seasons of college football for Ole Miss without reaching the end zone. His personal scorin…

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – John Brown and Cole Beasley were expected to add a boost to the Buffalo Bills’ passing game. Through two weeks, however they’ve done more than that. They’ve carried it. Brown and Beasley were again quarterback Josh Allen’s favorite targets Sunday in a 28-14 victory over the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium. Brown was targeted eight times and…

The Buffalo Bills are about as close to full health as they can be heading into the season opener. The only player on the 53-man roster to miss Monday’s practice was tight end Tyler Kroft. That has been the case for him since the first practice of the spring, when he suffered a broken foot. The difference is, throughout training camp and the preseason, Kroft was on t…

DETROIT — Those who coach and play defense for the Buffalo Bills would like you to believe it isn't all that big of a deal that the starters have yet to face an opponent's No. 1 quarterback in a game this summer. That was Jacoby Brissett, not Andrew Luck, guiding the Indianapolis Colts in the Aug. 8 preseason opener at New Era Field. That was Kyle Allen, not Cam Newt…

The Buffalo Bills couldn't have asked for two better days to start training camp. The team practiced under perfect conditions at St. John Fisher College at 9:45 a.m. Thursday and Friday, and will do so again both days this weekend.

E.J. Gaines learned a valuable lesson last year: The grass in Cleveland isn’t necessarily greener than it is in Buffalo. Gaines is back with the Bills after a one-season detour down the 90 westbound with the Browns. The veteran cornerback, who is entering his sixth NFL season, returned to Buffalo on a one-year contract worth up to $2.1 million. That’s just about half…

This week's Bills Mailbag focuses on LeSean McCoy's future, the biggest remaining position of need … and my son's golf game. Let's get right to it: Jim Eimer asks: Who will be the biggest surprise cut? If you were general manager, what is a blockbuster trade you would consider — either trading away or a position of upgrade? Jay: Both answers involve LeSean McCoy. The…

The Buffalo Bills got an early start on their summer Thursday. Head coach Sean McDermott canceled the team’s final practice of mandatory minicamp and instead hosted a field day inside the ADPRO Sports Training Center. “I’ve been encouraged with the participation, with the attitude, with the work ethic,” McDermott said Monday. “The guys are coming together.” That’s…

April is one of the best sports months of the year. The start of baseball, the Masters, the start of the NBA and NHL playoffs (remember those, Sabres fans?) and, of course, the NFL draft. Naturally at this time of year, that topic dominates this week's mailbag. Let's get right to it ... I’Don’tTrustTheProcess asks: What is the likelihood the Bills take a flier in the…

Bills training camp is a long way away, but you can already put down cornerback on the list of position battles to watch. The Bills signed CB E.J. Gaines on Monday, bringing back a player who started on Sean McDermott's defense in 2017. Gaines is expected to make a push for the second cornerback job opposite Tre'Davious White. Levi Wallace had a strong finish to his …
