Sean McDermott did his best to avoid them, but injuries still impacted the Buffalo Bills in their regular-season finale Sunday. The team's head coach chose to sit several starters in a meaningless game against the New York Jets at New Era Field. Cornerback Tre’Davious White, running back Devin Singletary, tight end Dawson Knox and wide receivers John Brown and Cole B…

Cole Beasley wasn’t going to take no for an answer. The Buffalo Bills’ wide receiver had former teammates lining up to get his game-worn jersey after the Thanksgiving game against the Dallas Cowboys – so much so that Beasley even brought an extra one with him to AT&T Stadium. Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott was one of those who told Beasley before the game that …

Fred Jackson knows that he remains a fan-favorite player in Buffalo. But even he couldn't believe the response when it was revealed that he would sign a one-day contract with the Bills to officially retire as a member of the franchise. "I was head-over-heels blown away by it. I love it to death," Jackson said Wednesday after signing the paperwork. "It’s one of those thi…

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Kyle Williams isn't the only player who will make his playoff debut after a long NFL career of suffering without. Jacksonville Jaguars linebacker Paul Posluszny also will see his first postseason action Sunday at Everbank Field. "That's what we do it for," Posluszny said, "just for a chance to go for a championship." Buffalo Bills fans quickly…

The Raiders were without Marshawn Lynch on Sunday after his one-game suspension for putting his hands on an official. That meant bigger roles for Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington. Richard had five carries for 21 yards and five receptions for 35 yards. Washington posted six carries for 26 yards and caught eight passes for 62 yards and a touchdown. But they each lo…

Marshawn Lynch won't play in the Raiders' game against the Bills this week due to suspension. But Marshawn does what Marshawn wants, and apparently that even includes practicing (full-contact) against high school players at his alma mater. Lynch posted a video on Instagram Thursday morning showing him putting in work against high school players at Oakland Tech, where he…

Analysis

The standings were not supposed to look this way in Week Eight. The Oakland Raiders were supposed to be Super Bowl contenders entering 2017, with a Pro Bowl quarterback in Derek Carr and All-World defensive end in Khalil Mack. The Buffalo Bills were afterthoughts in the AFC, thought by many to simply be killing time until the 2018 draft. A funny thing happened once t…

Marshawn Lynch's one-game suspension for making contact with an official in the Raiders' Week Seven victory over the Chiefs on "Thursday Night Football" has been upheld. Since Lynch won't play against the Bills, let's examine what Buffalo's run defense will be up against with other Oakland runners (Lynch's numbers are included below for comparison). (Stats courtesy o…

Maybe you looked forward to next Sunday's game against the Oakland Raiders to watch running back Marshawn Lynch back in Orchard Park. Denied. Perhaps you would love to see EJ Manuel's homecoming against the Buffalo Bills. Think again! The NFL has suspended Lynch for the Week Eight game at New Era Field, and Raiders quarterback Derek Carr's busted back has heale…

NFL sideline protests had been a fading issue. A few players still kneel or raise a fist during "The Star-Spangled Banner," but the regular season began three weeks ago. Fans are watching the games, tracking their fantasy players, betting the point spreads. While Colin Kaepernick's continued unemployment after kneeling out national anthems last season remains a debate, p…

Here is look how each of those players did: Western New Yorkers • Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski: The Amherst native made seven catches for 83 yards and two touchdowns in a 27-20 victory over Kansas City. Gronk played 53 offe…

Fred Jackson knows the Buffalo Bills' backfield has been battered since the team cut him. Jackson hasn't missed a game for the Seattle Seahawks as a passing-down/relief back. The Bills, meanwhile, have three hurt runners. LeSean McCoy has a bad hamstring. Karlos Williams is recovering from a concussion. Cierre Wood suffered a season-ending knee injury Sunday. "I don't h…

RENTON, Wash. -- When the Buffalo Bills cut Thurman Thomas 14 years ago, he signed with the archrival Miami Dolphins out of spite. Fred Jackson had a chance to do the contemporary equivalent by joining the New England Patriots. The Patriots and Seattle Seahawks reached out to Jackson about an hour after the Bills released him last week. Each defending conference champ of…

They say moving can be the most stressful time in a person's life. C.J. Spiller knows this now. He has been back in Orchard Park this week, packing up five years of Buffalo Bills memories before starting his new job with the New Orleans Saints. "I thought it would be a smooth cleanout," Spiller said Thursday morning at a Tim Hortons around the corner from Ralph Wilson St…

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Alan Branch's last act for the Buffalo Bills was vomiting out of his car door while drunk and behind the wheel in Cheektowaga. Branch already had been considered a waste. He skipped voluntary offseason workouts, arrived to training camp grossly out of shape and got buried on the depth chart. The Bills had signed him in December 2013 to a three-year con…
