Analysis

Vic Carucci There's enough to like about the Ravens to expect to see them playing in Miami in February. Saying the same about the Bills still feels a bit premature, although they've never been closer to that status. Winning this game would put them there. To do so, Josh Allen must continue to perform at the level he has shown the past few weeks, with arguably the most tra…

Analysis

It was plainly evident last Sunday that Jason Garrett is far too conservative a coach for the NFL. With his Dallas Cowboys trailing 13-6 with just more than six minutes remaining, he opted to kick a field goal on fourth-and-7 from the New England 11-yard line. As a result, after a 3-0 start, the bad Boys are now 6-5 yet remain in first place in the unstable NFC East – f…

Bills

Vic Carucci I'm inclined to think the Buffalo Bills' offense has legitimately moved the needle from the wet book of matches act it had going through the better part of nine games. How far is the question. The Miami Dolphins are so bad, it's easy to assume that everything the Bills did well last Sunday was because of that. Still, I think the up-tempo approach of the offens…

Analysis

Vic Carucci It was one loss, but the ramifications seem so much larger. Suddenly, the strength of the Bills, their defense, doesn’t look so strong. Suddenly, the team’s weakness, scoring, seems even weaker. Expecting both sides to be fixed this week could be asking too much, but that is the expectation. The Bills are 5-2. The Redskins are 1-7 and probably starting a rooki…

Analysis

Vic Carucci Although the Bills have yet to shake their slow starts and are far from prolific scorers, they still find ways to beat opponents with losing records. Add the Eagles to the list, despite the perception they’re better than their 3-4 mark. There’s a lot of discussion the Eagles are more motivated to win because of their horrific showing against the Cowboys last S…

Bills

The Miami Dolphins being favored over the Buffalo Bills by as many as 17 was among the storylines of the week. The Bills won the game, 31,-21, but did not cover. However, the one bettor who had the worst day with a wager on the game might be the one who bet $130,000 on the Bills' first-half money line with CG Technology, as reported by ESPN's David Purdum. The line w…

Bills

Now that the Dolphins successfully passed the "Tank For Tua" bowl, it’s on to Buffalo where the Bills are one of only two AFC teams without two losses this season (guess the other). Two questions immediately come to the surface in this contest: 1) are the Bills really this good? and 2) are the Dolphins really this bad? The answers to both are not really, but don’t try s…

Analysis

Vic Carucci After three weeks of flying high, albeit on a relatively bumpy flight, the Bills made a hard landing with Sunday’s loss against the Patriots. Optimists see it as narrowing a major gap. Pessimists see it as the same old story. It probably falls somewhere in between. But with Josh Allen uncertain to play — or playing without the benefit of a full week of starti…

Bills

Tasked with playing their second consecutive game at MetLife Stadium, the Buffalo Bills stayed in the same hotel last week – with players lodged in the very same rooms – to mimic the lead-up to their opening week 17-16 comeback win over the New York Jets. They proceeded to trounce the Giants, 28-14, to improve to 2-0 for the first time since 2014. On the other side of t…
