Youth dominates the Buffalo Bills' tight end meeting room, thanks to the presence of two rookies on the 53-man roster and one on the practice squad. You'd think that might make the job of tight ends coach Rob Boras more difficult, but he relishes it. "The energy that they bring every day has really re-energized the entire room," Boras said of Dawson Knox, Tommy Sween…

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 …

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – Duke Williams is still waiting for the call. The Buffalo Bills’ wide receiver was a healthy inactive for the third consecutive game Sunday against the Miami Dolphins. Based on the reactions from fans on social media, that’s an unpopular decision by the team’s coaching staff. Williams, who caught the go-ahead touchdown in his first NFL game ag…

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – Josh Allen slapped himself in the side of the helmet after firing a pass into Frank Gore’s feet. It was third-and-3, late third quarter, deep in Buffalo territory, and the incomplete pass along the left sideline forced the Bills to punt. They were leading the lowly Miami Dolphins by 16 points. But Allen referenced this play in particular when expla…

Few understand the passion and commitment of Bills fans better than former Buffalo quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, now with the Miami Dolphins. As has become custom when the Bills play on the road, Bills fans make the trip, particularly to South Florida. Sunday's game at Hard Rock Stadium often sounded more like a Bills' home game than a Dolphins' home game. "Their fan…

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – Here are my hot reads from the Buffalo Bills' 37-20 victory against the Miami Dolphins Sunday at Hard Rock Stadium. Hottest topic Sure, it was the Dolphins, who are striving to be terrible. The Bills, however, are trying to reach the playoffs. They desperately needed to bounce back from an ugly, 19-16 loss against the Cleveland Browns. And that w…

Here are my five takes for Sunday's game between the Buffalo Bills and Miami Dolphins at Hard Rock Stadium. 1. Treat the Dolphins like the Dolphins. This is a bad opponent. No spin can change that, including phrases such as "red-hot Dolphins" that emanated from the Bills' dressing room this week. The Dolphins have earned their way to the bottom portion of the leag…

Frank Gore had committed to play college football at Ole Miss, but his mom was sick, and Curtis Johnson, the assistant coach trying to convince him to stay and play in Miami, called and asked a question that shook the teenager to his core. “He was like, ‘How are you supposed to be the best guy in Dade (County) or Florida, and you’re leaving the state? You’ve got one of …

Vic Carucci Losing is not an option. Losing could very well mean the beginning of the end of the season, even with six games remaining after Sunday. So I'm taking that right off the table, because I believe the Bills remain capable of winning a game they are absolutely, positively, unequivocally supposed to win. Forget the Dolphins' two-game winning streak. They are a bad…

Analysis

This is an AFC East rematch from a month ago when the Bills beat the Dolphins, 31-21, in Buffalo as 17-point chalk. It was the only game in which Miami out-statted an opponent this season. It was also the game in which Miami re-inserted Ryan Fitzpatrick as its starting quarterback. The Fish are swimming in calmer waters these days. And if there is one role in which t…

Dolphins Week once elevated the tension and urgency around One Bills Drive. Thurman Thomas would wear that customary scowl, ready to snap at reporters as he sat in front of his dressing cubicle. Bruce Smith and others would be talking themselves into a frenzy over some perceived lack of respect from Miami players. Nearly 30 years later, Dolphins Week can still turn u…

The NFL will not fine Dolphins safety Bobby McCain for allegedly spitting at a Bills fan after Sunday's game at New Era Field, a league source confirmed. Dolphins coach Brian Flores said Monday that the team plans internal discipline, although he would not offer specifics. The league intends to let the team's discipline be sufficient. The NFL decision was first repor…

The Buffalo Bills came off a bye week out of practice Sunday, and nearly said goodbye to their tremendous start, before ultimately finishing off the Miami Dolphins, 31-21.   For a while it looked like it could have been a Ryan Fitzhattrick. Fitzpatrick threw for one score, bullied his way into the end zone on the ground, and nearly threw for a third, only to be disencha…
