There was no squeaking by the New York Jets or New York Giants, no second-half com…

Devin Singletary was surrounded by microphones and cameras as reporters eagerly asked about his mentor, Frank Gore, passing Barry Sanders for the third-most rushing yards in NFL history. Gore butted in, selflessly imploring everyone to ask about the rookie’s career day. “Coming in, I told Frank, ‘Let’s go get them 46 yards,’ ” Singletary said. “He told me, ‘Let’s get…

Leslie Frazier was confident the Buffalo Bills would fix what was broken with their run defense. Through the first half Sunday against the Washington Redskins, he looked to be grossly mistaken. A week after allowing 218 rushing yards to the Philadelphia Eagles, the Bills were in the process of being gashed again. Washington running back Adrian Peterson, the 34-year-o…

NASHVILLE – As soon as Quinton Spain took a look at the Buffalo Bills’ schedule and saw they played the Tennessee Titans here, he knew that meant something akin to a ninth home game. The Bills’ left guard played the previous four seasons with the Titans and was used to the home team enduring a hostile environment from the hordes of opponents’ fans that often pour into N…

Quinton Spain has been in this situation before, blocking for a young, mobile, highly drafted quarterback with tremendous potential, a supposed “franchise quarterback.” For the last four seasons, the left guard protected Marcus Mariota in Tennessee.
