Leadership matters as much to Sean McDermott as anything his football team does on the field. The Buffalo Bills' coach has always drawn a direct line between how well players are led by coaches and each other, and the way they perform. "I think it's one of his core values," former Bills linebacker Lorenzo Alexander said. "It's something that I think he has just embra…

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…

Kyle Williams saw flimsy construction after flimsy construction that the architects always tried passing off as solid and sound. The structures would look nice on the outside, yet something was constantly missing. There was a lot of flash, plenty of eye-catching elements, but no real foundation. Nothing to serve as bonding to keep it upright for the long haul. And it wo…

The rest of the NFL is catching up to what the Buffalo Bills have known for a while: Tre’Davious White is one of the best cornerbacks in the league. That was solidified Tuesday when White was chosen for his first Pro Bowl. “I'm excited about it. I feel like this should be my second or third one, but it is what it is,” White said. “It's good to finally get in and be r…

Talk about a shotgun wedding. Sorry, we couldn’t resist. As part of its 100th-year celebration, the NFL challenged each of its 32 teams to come up with a once-in-a-lifetime experience for fans. The Buffalo Bills’ idea involved a wedding at New Era Field … during halftime of a game. Seriously. That wedding will take place Sunday, when Rochester couple Mackenzie …

According to data released Tuesday from sportsbetting.ag and betonline.ag, the Bills have received the most bets to win the AFC East and the most bets to surpass their over/under win total of seven.

PITTSFORD – Here are my top takeaways from Day 7 of Bills training camp at St. John Fisher College. 1. Dialing it back. The Bills practiced in shorts and shells Thursday after four consecutive workouts in pads. As such, the intensity level was down a couple of notches.

PITTSFORD – The milestones will arrive often for Ed Oliver in the next couple of months. On Thursday, it was his first training-camp practice as a member of the Buffalo Bills.

Two of the Buffalo Bills’ defensive leaders agree on what they see ahead for Tremaine Edmunds. “He’s going to be one of the best in the league,” safety Micah Hyde said of the second-year middle linebacker. “He'll be one of the top linebackers (in the NFL) in the next year or so, I believe,” veteran linebacker Lorenzo Alexander said. That might seem like a lot of p…

Josh Allen’s nickname in high school wasn’t exactly flattering. His old baseball coach called him “Tortuga,” based on his slow, plodding running style. So how did the Buffalo Bills’ quarterback go from being known by the Spanish word for turtle to shocking the NFL with his rushing ability? The answer can be found in the training methods of Ryan Flaherty. Nike’s se…

Losing Kyle Williams is going to hurt the leadership of any locker room. The Buffalo Bills, though, look as if they should be able to withstand it. Veteran linebacker Lorenzo Alexander figures to immediately step into that role, but he’s already announced the 2019 season will be his last. That means the Bills will be looking for another defensive player to emerge. As…

In 2013, when Star Lotulelei was a rookie defensive tackle who had joined the Carolina Panthers as a first-round draft pick, he found guidance from a veteran at the same position, Dwan Edwards. Edwards was in the 10th season of an NFL career that included a brief stop with the Buffalo Bills, from 2010 to 2011. Edwards wasn't much of a talker, but he provided Lotulelei w…
