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…

Brian Daboll has been unwavering in his support of Josh Allen. The Buffalo Bills’ offensive coordinator has full confidence in his second-year quarterback. That trust was on display in the season opener against the New York Jets, as Allen dropped back to throw on the team’s first 17 offensive plays.

DETROIT – The Bills’ starting defense found itself in a familiar position in the first half of the team’s 24-20 preseason victory against the Lions on Friday night at Ford Field: Defending a short field after a turnover. Twice. Buffalo gave up a total of three points on those Detroit drives, which began at the Bills’ 27- and 18-yard lines. And while Matt Stafford put…

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.
