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 …

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.

Jordan Phillips bet on himself by signing a one-year contract with the Buffalo Bills this offseason. He’s well on his way toward seeing that bet pay off in a big way. Phillips had another sack Sunday in the Bills’ 24-9 win over the Washington Redskins at New Era Field, his sixth of the season – tops among all defensive tackles in the NFL through Week 9. “The guy’s…

There is work ahead. Even the least cynical of observers would say the Buffalo Bills have a great deal to improve through the second half of their schedule. But a 6-2 record, the Bills' best start since going 7-1 in 1993, also means there's no need to apologize. "Listen, man," tight end Lee Smith said after a 24-9 victory against the lowly Washington Redskins on S…

Leslie Frazier was confident the Buffalo Bills would fix what was broken with their run defense. Through the first half Sunday against the Washington Redskins, he looked to be grossly mistaken. A week after allowing 218 rushing yards to the Philadelphia Eagles, the Bills were in the process of being gashed again. Washington running back Adrian Peterson, the 34-year-o…

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 haven’t had too many tough Mondays this season. This past one, however, would qualify as such. A 31-13 loss will do that. Starting the work week the day after that is always a little bit tougher in Western New York. That feeling is only amplified inside One Bills Drive, where the high-stakes realities of life in the NFL produce an immense amount of pre…

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…

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…

Running game: C+ Even with Buffalo Bills rookie Devin Singletary back in the lineup, it was veteran Frank Gore who continued to handle the bulk of the rushing duties. Gore gained 55 yards on 11 carries against his former team. He has 388 yards on the season and is on pace for 1,034. For a 36-year-old, that’s impressive. Quarterback Josh Allen, who ran wild against the M…

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Even after entering concussion protocol, Josh Allen was clear-minded enough to see what everyone else saw in the Buffalo Bills' 16-10 loss against the New England Patriots. "I'm not going to sugarcoat it," he said. "I didn't play good last week. I put the ball in harm's way too many times." Allen was standing behind a lectern in the visitor's inter…
