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 …

Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen continues to endear himself to Bills fans far and wide, and this answer from Sunday's postgame news conference won't hurt. Asked what he wanted to show the New York teams and fans the first two weeks said, he replied, “One New York team," with a wink and a point. "I'm just kidding," he said. "I care about what the Bills are doing …

The Buffalo Bills list Patrick DiMarco as a fullback, but he fully understands that limiting his knowledge to duties specific to that position is both short-sighted and hazardous to his job security. Fullbacks are the NFL's dinosaurs. Anyone still able to draw a paycheck in that capacity — especially the $2.15 million that DiMarco counts against the Bills' salary cap, s…

You might remember the New York Jets' Henry Anderson. Lindsey Hauschka does. Anderson is the player who blindsided Buffalo Bills kicker Stephen Hauschka last season after a field goal attempt was blocked and the Jets tried running back the recovery, Hauschka suffered a hip injury. Anderson said it was a "totally legal and fair play" during a segment on "The Pat Mc…

One thing you can bank on Brian Daboll not doing is this: Banging his head into a brick wall. Rather than try to pound the ball into the strength of the New York Jets’ defense – the defensive line – the Bills’ offensive coordinator spread it out to get the matchups he wanted in the season-opening 17-16 victory Sunday. It worked a lot better than the point total indic…

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. –  The Bills’ defense has been in situations similar to the one it faced in Sunday’s opener against the New York Jets, only to suffer defeat. And it has been in games that have snowballed out of control. Visions of turnover machine Nathan Peterman and the blowout loss in last year’s season opener at the Baltimore Ravens come to mind. But this gr…

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – The Buffalo Bills' defense spent most of Sunday trying to bail out the offense. More specifically, it was trying to rescue the season-opener at MetLife Stadium from the ineptitude of Josh Allen. After being fully or partly responsible for four turnovers and nearly throwing a third interception in the first half (a potential fourth was dropped …

The Bills won the first of their two trips to MetLife Stadium to open the season, coming back to down the New York Jets, 17-16. "It's hard to win in this league," coach Sean McDermott told reporters afterward. "You go into some tough environments. We expected a 12-round fight. They are a good team, with good players. "I thought our guys kept their composure and put a…

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – Here are my hot reads from the Buffalo Bills' 17-16 season-opening victory against the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium: Hottest Topic: Talk about a tale of two halves. For the first two quarters, Josh Allen was terrible. He not only showed zero signs of progress to begin his season, he actually seemed to go in reverse in a game where the Bill…

Andre Roberts' Buffalo Bills debut will need to wait. Roberts has been ruled out of Sunday's season opener against his former team, the New York Jets, with a quadriceps injury. Roberts has not participated in the last three days of practice and was in street clothes for the team's practice Friday. Roberts signed with the Bills as a free agent when the Jets opted not …

Josh Allen and Sam Darnold were roommates in California last year as both prepared for the NFL Draft. They rented a house together last winter as they prepared for their second season. But both are serious about what they do and are putting their friendship aside this week as the teams prepare for Sunday's season opener. "It’s fun to joke about it in the offseason an…

Analysis

Vic Carucci These clubs look to be closely matched, so oddsmakers installing the home team as a three-point favorite is understandable. But I think a decent case can be made that the Bills are slightly better. It starts with a defense returning 10 starters and capable of keeping big plays to a minimum. That tends to hold up well on the road. The Bills’ many offensive u…

It’s been a long time (2006) since the Bills opened the season with their first two games on the road – and oddly, both will be in the same stadium, with Week 1 against the Jets and Week 2 against the Giants. Buffalo also could take part in up to six 2018 first-round quarterback battles when Bills QB Josh Allen faces Baker Mayfield, Lamar Jackson and Sam Darnold (twice)…
