There is a funny truth that comes with playing cornerback in the NFL: The best players at the position don't always put up the best numbers. Tre'Davious White's 2018 season for the Buffalo Bills is a good demonstration. He finished his 2017 rookie year with 18 passes defensed (tied for sixth most in the NFL) and four interceptions. Last season, those numbers dropped to …

This is the next piece in a series analyzing the Bills' most significant questions entering the offseason. Part 7: Is Levi Wallace the answer as the No. 2 cornerback? It’s hard to overstate just how important Levi Wallace’s emergence was for the Buffalo Bills’ defense in 2018. A revolving door at right cornerback saw Phillip Gaines, Vontae Davis and Ryan Lewis walk t…

Don't look now, but the Buffalo Bills are officially "in the hunt." A pair of victories over AFC teams in their past two games has at least kept the Bills on the TV graphic showing the postseason picture. That leads us into our first question in this week's mailbag. Let's get to it: Brendan Sweet asks: Any chance the Bills can run the table and sneak into the playoff…

The Buffalo Bills cut a starting cornerback this week, and with so much of the conversation rightfully focused on the team’s moribund offense, the move was essentially an afterthought. Coach Sean McDermott wasn’t even asked about it until Thursday, two days after Phillip Gaines was jettisoned on the team’s off day. Gaines, a third-round draft pick by the Kansas City …

One celebrated rookie quarterback is close to returning, while another is staring at the possibility of missing some time. The Buffalo Bills’ Josh Allen was able to practice on a limited basis Wednesday as he recovers from a sprained throwing elbow. The New York Jets’ Sam Darnold, conversely, was unable to practice because of a sprained foot. Reports out of the Big Appl…

The questions of who will be the Buffalo Bills' starting cornerback opposite Tre'Davious White continue. The Bills released cornerback Phillip Gaines on Tuesday. Gaines, who signed a one-year, $790,000 contract in free agency, had started six games for the Bills this season and had 30 tackles, including one for loss. Gaines had a difficult day Sunday in the 41-9 l…

Grading the Bills RUNNING GAME: F The final numbers mask how awful this was. The team gained 97 yards on 28 carries, but 46 of those yards came from quarterback Nathan Peterman, including a 24-yard scramble on the final play of the first half – when he elected to run instead of throwing a Hail Mary to the end zone. LeSean McCoy’s long run on 10 carries was just 4 yards…

Grading the Bills RUNNING GAME: F The ugliest effort of the year. LeSean McCoy gained 12 yards out of the wildcat formation on the first play of the game. He gained 1 yard on his next 11 carries. Seriously. The question might not be should the Bills move McCoy by Tuesday’s trade deadline, but rather, would another team want him? The blocking and the play calling dese…

The Bills have been called for 47 accepted penalties, which is tied for third most in the NFL, according to the website nflpenalties.com.

HOUSTON – The matchup Sunday between Bills cornerback Tre’Davious White and Texans receiver DeAndre Hopkins was highly anticipated. So, too, will be the rematch, whenever that happens. White was outspoken after the Bills’ 20-13 loss against Houston at NRG Stadium. “I feel like I won the battle,” he said. “I mean, what he have, two passes for like 30-something yard…

HOUSTON – At least for this week, Phillip Gaines has won the Buffalo Bills' starting cornerback competition. The Bills announced Sunday morning that Ryan Lewis will be inactive against the Houston Texans, meaning Gaines will start opposite Tre'Davious White. The Bills have been rotating Lewis and Gaines throughout the practice week. Lewis has started the Bills' last thr…

Derek Anderson visited One Bills Drive on Monday, but the veteran quarterback still does not have a contract with the team. “Nothing’s final at the present moment,” Buffalo Bills coach Sean McDermott said late Monday afternoon. The more McDermott talked, though, the more it sounded like adding Anderson to the quarterback room is still a distinct possibility. “Firs…
