Run the football. This is no longer a suggestion from Buffalo Bills fans desperate for even the tiniest sliver of hope for an offense that makes scoring seem like climbing Mount Everest. This is a plea. Run the football. It made perfect sense a couple of weeks ago when the Philadelphia Eagles came to town, didn't it? The winds were whipping throughout New Era Fiel…

Tony Bush peered through the lens of a borrowed camera from his section high atop Nissan Stadium in Nashville, where he sat alongside the visiting team’s family members and friends, and zoomed in to try to make out the number on the jersey. It was his future son-in-law, Jordan Poyer, writhing in pain on the turf. “From where I was, you could see the whole field, and …

Swirling winds topping 40 miles an hour whipped through New Era Field on Sunday and blew the lid and shine off the Bills’ previous lofty, second-in-the-AFC record.   Buffalo is neither as good as 5-1 might indicate, nor as bad as the 31-13 drubbing by the Eagles might, either.  No unit, coach, or player fared well. The Bills were dominated on both sides of the ball, …

The Buffalo Bills’ offense went three-and-out once again, their fans were already streaming toward the parking lots, and after a terrible punt sailed out of bounds at midfield, the defense tried to muster the will to give a damn. “Guys were out there talking, ‘Hey, let’s finish this game strong. It’s going to go a long way,’ ” safety Jordan Poyer said in Buffalo’s sombe…

The Buffalo Bills allowed 218 yards on the ground to the Philadelphia Eagles in Sunday's 31-13 loss. The total is the most the Eagles have run for in a game under coach Doug Pederson and the fifth-most that the Eagles have allowed under Sean McDermott. Here are the Bills' worst games against the run in McDermott's time as head coach: 298 – New Orleans Saints, 47-10, …

Here are my five takes for Sunday's game between the Buffalo Bills and Philadelphia Eagles at New Era Field. 1. The theory that the Eagles have an edge because of lingering anger from embarrassing blowout losses the past two weeks against the Dallas Cowboys and Minnesota Vikings doesn't hold up. First of all, to think that a pair of poor performances should provide s…

Those who knew Sean McDermott as a teenager at La Salle College High School in suburban Philadelphia describe the Buffalo Bills’ head coach as a soft-spoken, single-minded, ripped redhead who cheered for the city’s four major pro sports teams, made those around him better and was always prepared for classwork and athletic competition, whether on the football field or wrest…

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…

This is our annual ABO game: Always Beware of the Obvious. It would be difficult finding a team that looked as bad in a prime-time game than the Philadelphia Eagles did Sunday at Dallas, but there they were, on full display for the nation to see. Not only did they lay a tyrannosaurus egg, they coughed up 400-plus yards for the second consecutive game. Hardly attributes of …

Chad Hall and his wife, Rose, were out to dinner recently to celebrate the 33rd birthday of the Buffalo Bills’ first-year receivers coach. It was supposed to have been just the two of them, but when word of their special night found its way onto a text thread of the players in his position group, the dinner lost its intimacy. “One of them got on it and was like, ‘Coa…

INDIANAPOLIS — Too much information. For NFL coaches preparing players for a game, there seemingly is no such thing. After all, isn’t the goal each week to not only address every possible scenario, but also find as many ways as they can to catch the opponent by surprise? Sean McDermott gets all that. It’s just, in his endless quest to make the Buffalo Bills a better team…
