There’s usually no tackling for the Buffalo Bills in the spring. That NFL rule got broken more than a few times Monday, though. In conjunction with the league’s Inspire Change Initiative, six members of the team visited Bornhava, an Amherst-based early childhood center for children with developmental disabilities. The kids there had huge smiles on their faces as they to…

LeSean McCoy’s not ready to pack it in. Even though the playoffs are no longer a possibility, the Buffalo Bills’ running back is still eager to get on the field in the final two weeks, starting Sunday in New England. “I want to. I want to get out there and get it going a little bit,” McCoy said Thursday after practice. “I need some more yards. But no, it'll be fun to…

As Derek Anderson’s stay in the NFL’s concussion protocol dragged on, concern grew. The Buffalo Bills’ veteran quarterback was hurt against the New England Patriots on Oct. 29, but didn’t receive medical clearance until last Friday. As days turned into weeks, it became less about Anderson being able to play again and more about him having a healthy life outside of footb…

The end of last Sunday’s game between the Bills and Jaguars was rather anticlimactic. For the home team, that was a good thing. Bills receivers Zay Jones easily recovered an onside kick attempt by Jacksonville’s Josh Lambo, allowing his team to run out the clock in a 24-21 win. The play was forgettable — as nearly every onside kick attempt has become in the NFL. The …

Exhausted from preparing your Thanksgiving feast? Try putting together 60 pounds of turkey, 110 pounds of mac and cheese, 50 pounds of candied yams and 30 pounds of stuffing and mashed potatoes — enough to feed about 250 people. That was part of the job description this week for Will Greenberg, the Buffalo Bills’ assistant strength and conditioning coach. Along with …

Josh Allen heard the disrespect from his teammates. Even the team chaplain crossed the line. Not one of them ranked Allen, the Buffalo Bills’ rookie franchise quarterback, the seventh overall pick in the NFL draft, among the five best pingpong players on the team. “It’s frustrating to be disrespected like that,” Allen said with a grimace. “But they’ll learn soon e…

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – Who knew that all it would take for the Buffalo Bills to find an offense was make Matt Barkley their starting quarterback? That’s Matt Barkley ... as in the free agent they signed less than two weeks ago after he left the Cincinnati Bengals, his sixth NFL employer, via an injury settlement from a Grade-3 MCL sprain ... as in the guy who hadn’t pl…

LeSean McCoy’s decision to avoid speaking with the media is not an issue with this member of the media. You can ask him to fulfill his obligation, per the standard NFL player contract, to make himself available to reporters during the season. You can request the assistance of the team’s public relations staff to try to persuade him to fulfill that obligation. You can al…

INDIANAPOLIS – The game was still very much there for the taking Sunday when Charles Clay made a back-breaking mistake. The Buffalo Bills’ tight end’s lost fumble in the red zone was a critical play in what turned into a blowout loss to the Colts. The Bills trailed, 6-0, at the time and had reached the Indianapolis 13-yard line when Clay had the ball knocked away from h…

What a change from a year ago at this time. The 2017 Buffalo Bills season got off to a surprising 3-1 start, capturing the attention and imagination of the team’s long-suffering fans. That hot start went a long way toward the Bills ending a 17-year playoff drought. Fast forward to today, though, and it’s a different story. The Bills have started 2018 with a 1-3 recor…

MINNEAPOLIS – Micah Hyde has come to expect what he saw Sunday from Tre’Davious White. “I told him in the offseason he can be the best corner in this league,” the Buffalo Bills’ safety said of his second-year teammate Sunday. “Like coach says all the time, it's a process, we understand that, but he's been putting in the work and I think he's mentally ready to take that …

The Buffalo Bills’ defense looked like an entirely different unit in the second half Sunday. After getting smoked to the tune of 284 yards and 28 points in the first half of the home opener at New Era Field, head coach Sean McDermott took over play-calling duties from defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier. The results were immediate: The Bills held Los Angles to 65 to…

Even the one time the Buffalo Bills did sack Joe Flacco on Sunday was a bit of a disappointment. With the Baltimore Ravens leading 17-0 early in the second quarter, Flacco dropped back to pass. Bills defensive end Jerry Hughes came racing into the backfield, and looked to have a free shot on Flacco. Instead of taking down the Ravens’ quarterback, however, Hughes whiffed…

Buffalo Bills fullback Patrick DiMarco says offensive coordinator Brian Daboll has a pet phrase he likes to repeat to players. "You've got to stick to what you're good at and give the best look to be effective," DiMarco says. "Coach Daboll says you don't want to try to pound a nail into a cement wall." Translation: Don't keep hammering at the defense's strength. T…

CLEVELAND – Here are 10 observations from the Bills' 19-17 victory against the Cleveland Browns on Friday night at FirstEnergy Stadium. 1. The Buffalo Bills’ offensive line did quarterback AJ McCarron and running back LeSean McCoy no favors. Whether it was failing to open holes or provide pass protection, the starting five up front was a mess. The Bills’ first four driv…
