The final score of Thursday night’s game between the New England Patriots and New York Giants told anyone who didn’t watch that the predictable, a lopsided Patriots' victory, happened. Anyone who watched it or checked the summary could see that something is missing from this edition of New England dominance. A dominating offense. Tom Brady acknowledged as much to …

The chief architect of one of the more dominant defenses in the NFL has his priorities straight. Leslie Frazier wants to do his part to help the Buffalo Bills win their next game, which isn't until Oct. 20, when they face the Miami Dolphins. He also wants to do his part to help the Bills win a championship. What the 60-year-old Frazier isn't doing is spending a whole…

When Robert Kraft stepped off a helicopter Sunday morning in Orchard Park, Buffalo Bills fans tailgating outside New Era Field greeted the New England Patriots owner like one might expect. They showered the Pats owner with a chorus of boos. But Kraft also left a mark in another way – the helicopter literally left impressions, causing minor damage to Erie Community Co…

Coach Sean McDermott declined to say whether the Bills intend to file a grievance with the NFL regarding the hit by the Patriots' Jonathan Jones on Bills quarterback Josh Allen. The NFL Network reported Monday that Jones will not be suspended but could be the subject of a potential fine for the unnecessary roughness penalty that was called. Asked about the hit Monday…

Analysis

If Josh Allen had given up on as many plays and thrown away as many passes as Tom Brady did Sunday, the Bills might have beaten the New England Patriots. Brady was terrible under pressure in the Patriots’ 16-10 victory at New Era Field. The six-time Super Bowl winner had eight throwaways among his 18 incomplete passes. He was just 1 of 11 for 14 yards under pressure.…

The Bills and coach Sean McDermott were furious after the helmet-to-helmet hit by Jonathan Jones that sent Josh Allen into the concussion protocol during Sunday's game against the Patriots. The question emerged as to what would happen if New England's star quarterback Tom Brady took a hit like that. "I think that you’d probably be thrown out of the football game," Bi…

Abysmal doesn't begin to describe Josh Allen's performance Sunday. This was a game that demanded, at the very most, he take his game to the highest rung of a relatively short NFL career ladder and, at the very least, keep mistakes to a minimum. Allen did neither before leaving the Buffalo Bills' 16-10 loss against the New England Patriots early in the fourth quarter …

Here are my hot reads from the Buffalo Bills' 16-10 loss against the New England Patriots Sunday at New Era Field: Hottest topic The Bills' quarterback situation. Let's start with Josh Allen. Before leaving the game after taking a vicious-looking helmet-to-helmet shot, he was having what, at times, was one of the uglier performances of his 15 NFL starts. He threw thre…

Buffalo Bills coach Sean McDermott didn't take the safe route in discussing the helmet-to-helmet hit in a 16-10 loss Sunday against the New England Patriots that caused his quarterback, Josh Allen, to wind up in concussion protocol. "There is no room in football for a hit like that," McDermott told reporters. "It's a shame to see a player like Josh or any player like th…

Here are my five takes for Sunday's game between the Buffalo Bills and New England Patriots at New Era Field. 1. Don't let go of the lingering anger from the Bengals' game. Coaches and players always like to preach about the importance of forgetting the past and focusing on what's ahead. The Bills should do the opposite this week. Plenty of players, especially on def…

Rob Gronkowski will watch Sunday's big game at New Era Field while sitting in front of a television in Fort Myers, Fla., with his mother. He'll be about 1,300 miles from his native Western New York and the visiting team, the New England Patriots, on which he spent nine seasons and established himself as arguably the greatest tight end in NFL history. Welcome to retireme…

Vic Carucci Of course, the Patriots are the obvious pick because going with the Bills means ignoring history. Well, count me among the few willing (crazy enough?) to turn my back on the past. I believe it makes sense to look at this matchup through a different lens, because I believe the Bills are better than their wobbly walk to 3-0 indicates, and I’m not convinced the P…

Bills

Let’s not concede the Patriots another Super Bowl title just yet. Yes, their stats are impeccable: No. 1 overall in scoring defense and the No. 2 scoring offense. They became the first team in the Super Bowl era to not allow a passing or rushing TD in its first three games. A muffed punt recovered in the end zone by the Jets snapped the Pats’ run of 86 consecutive point…

Bills

The natural urge, always, is to overreact. It's in our DNA as fans and media. If the Buffalo Bills should ride this feel-good train to 4-0 Sunday, there will be no holding back the exhilaration and optimism about this season. There might not be a parade, but you can bet there will be more than a few people in these parts speaking the words Super and Bowl in the context …

When Bill Belichick looks at the Buffalo Bills' 3-0 start, the first thing that jumps out at him is how well they've performed in the clutch, especially against the New York Jets and Cincinnati Bengals. "They've played really their best football in critical situations, in the fourth quarter, when really the game's been in balance," Belichick said Tuesday during a confer…
