Bills

This week's Bills Mailbag starts with quarterback talk. Not about Josh Allen, though. It also touches on what the team's draft plans should be, whether it would be wise to take a run at a premier pass rusher and plenty more. Let's dive right in ... 4th and 27 asks: The 2018 Eagles and '19 Titans proved the wisdom of having a quality, experienced backup quarterback to…

Bills

The Buffalo Bills ended another long drought Friday. Cornerback Tre’Davious White was named a first-team All-Pro, becoming the first Bills player to do so since defensive tackle Marcell Dareus and defensive end Mario Williams were on the team in 2014. White, in his third season, was selected to the first team along with the New England Patriots' Stephon Gilmore. Gilm…

Grading the Bills in their 13-6 loss to the New York Jets on Sunday at New Era Field … Running game: C- It’s never a good thing when your leading rusher is a wide receiver, as was the case Sunday. That’s what happens when you sit your best running back, which the Bills did with rookie Devin Singletary. Receiver Isaiah McKenzie took a couple of jet sweeps for 30 yards…

Bills

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…

Bills

The decision seemed fairly obvious. Sit Josh Allen and let Matt Barkley play the entire way when the Buffalo Bills face the New York Jets Sunday. There's nothing to gain and, potentially, a whole lot to lose considering the game is a meaningless regular-season finale and a wild-card playoff encounter awaits at Houston or Kansas City the following weekend. Nevertheles…

Analysis

When the Bills pass: Quarterback Josh Allen has pointed to the first New England game – a 16-10 Patriots win – as a turning point in his season. Before leaving in the fourth quarter with a concussion, Allen threw three interceptions. Backup quarterback Matt Barkley would throw another, preventing the Bills from winning a game that was there for the taking. To Allen’s credi…

Bills

John Brown beat the cornerback’s press coverage, caught a rocket pass from Josh Allen along the right sideline, broke the safety’s attempted tackle and trotted into the end zone for a 40-yard touchdown. It was Brown’s first of two scores in the Buffalo Bills’ 37-20 victory against the Miami Dolphins on Nov. 17 at Hard Rock Stadium. And in the midst of his best game of t…

Bills

Let's face it. Josh Allen can't win. He gets bashed by media and fans for struggling with the long ball. And for playing poorly through the first three quarters of games. And for never having thrown for 300 yards in any of his 17 career starts. At 5-1, the Buffalo Bills have one of the best records in the NFL. They're one of two feel-good stories not only in Western …

Bills

This week's Bills Mailbag deals with Sean McDermott's struggles on challenges, Zay Jones' future, passing on Patrick Mahomes and the future at tight end, among much more. Let's dive in ... Sam Ruggiero asks: McDermott is a wonderful coach. He has built a powerful defense that is gaining increased recognition nationally. He seems to understand the game well. So, why is h…

Bills

Here are my five takes for Sunday's game between the Buffalo Bills and Tennessee Titans at Nissan Stadium in Nashville. 1. As early season games go, this one is reasonably important. To put it another way, a loss could prove more than a little damaging to the Bills' playoff aspirations. If the Bills are to be taken seriously as a postseason contender, they must take …

Analysis

NFL teams are fond of looking at the schedule in quarters. When the Buffalo Bills do so, they’ll come away feeling awfully good about the first one of the 2019 season – even if it ended on a sour note. The Bills went 3-1 in the first quarter of this season, a record that has them in a postseason spot if the season ended today. The one loss came Sunday against the New…

Analysis

When the Buffalo Bills run: There’s a good chance rookie running back Devin Singletary will return following a two-game absence because of a hamstring injury. Singletary was “close” to playing last week against the New England Patriots, according to coach Sean McDermott. In his absence, Frank Gore continued to spit in the face of Father Time, rushing 17 times for 109 yards…

Bills

No matter who starts at quarterback for the Buffalo Bills against the Tennessee Titans Sunday, the mission is the same. Don't become so caught up in the excruciating loss against the New England Patriots that it lingers and gets in the way of preparation for the Titans. Look at what's ahead rather than in the rear view mirror. "Yeah, it's big," Matt Barkley said to r…

Bills

Josh Allen remained in the NFL’s concussion protocol Monday, opening up the possibility of the Buffalo Bills having to turn to Matt Barkley for an important Week 5 game against the Tennessee Titans. Allen, the Bills’ second-year starter, suffered a concussion in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s loss to the New England Patriots when he was hit by the Patriots’ Jonathan Jon…
