ATLANTA – Ramon Humber has done more than just land on his feet. The former Buffalo Bills’ linebacker has gone from unemployed to the cusp of championship with the New England Patriots. Humber was released by the Bills on Nov. 10 as part of a youth movement after playing in 38 games for Buffalo over three seasons. Four days later, he signed with New England. As it wa…

The expected has occurred: Danny Crossman is out as the Buffalo Bills' special teams coordinator. Crossman was fired Thursday by coach Sean McDermott after a disastrous 2018 season for the Bills' special teams. Buffalo finished the year last in rankings compiled by analytics website Football Outsiders. Crossman, who joined the Bills in 2013, amazingly served under th…

Sean McDermott was asked Monday during his season-ending press conference if it was fair to grade his team on a curve, given the youth of the roster and the salary cap situation heading into the year. “I understand where you’re coming from with that and I’m more concerned right now with the direction of the organization, the direction of our football team,” the Buffalo …

When the Bills run: Finally. That’s what LeSean McCoy had to be saying after cracking 100 yards for the first time this season against the Jets. A change along the offensive line, inserting rookie Wyatt Teller for veteran left guard Vlad Ducasse, seemed to work wonders. The Bills should be at full strength at the position, with Chris Ivory back to face his old team after m…

Another former Buffalo Bill has landed with the New England Patriots. The Boston Herald is reporting that linebacker Ramon Humber has signed with the Patriots. Humber was spotted at practice Wednesday, wearing No. 50, reports ESPN's Mike Reiss. Humber, who spent the 2016 offseason with the Patriots, was released Saturday. He started 10 games with the Bills in the pre…

Rookie quarterback Josh Allen has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jets, the Bills announced Saturday. Allen will miss his fourth consecutive game since suffering a strained throwing elbow against the Texans. Matt Barkley, who signed with the team less than two weeks ago, will make his first NFL start since he started six games with the Bears — going 1-5 …

The second quarter of the 2018 season looked painfully similar to the first for the Buffalo Bills. The team went 1-3 again in the second quarter of the season, dropping its record to 2-6 halfway through the season. More troubling is the way they are losing. The offense is historically bad, leading to games feeling like they’re over the minute the team falls behind by tw…

The Buffalo Bills spent big this offseason on their front seven with the idea that investing there would greatly improve the run defense. Through five games in 2018, the numbers say that has happened. The Bills currently rank 12th in the NFL against the rush, allowing 96.2 yards per game. Last year, they finished 29th in the NFL, allowing 124.6 yards per game. “We ju…

GREEN BAY, Wis. – Grading offensive line play in the NFL can be subjective. Without knowing the assignments of each member, it’s hard to say who is at fault when a play breaks down. There are some measures to grade line play, though, and none of them are particularly kind to the Buffalo Bills right now. Rookie quarterback Josh Allen was under siege Sunday in a 22-0 l…

GREEN BAY, Wis. – LeSean McCoy returned Sunday, but it didn’t make a bit of difference for the Buffalo Bills. It’s now a quarter of the way through the 2018 season, and McCoy has 85 rushing yards. In four games. Yes, he missed one of those games because of injury, but that doesn’t lessen the concern about what’s happened in the other three. McCoy had 24 yards on just…

MINNEAPOLIS – Sean McDermott thought it would benefit Matt Milano to stand and watch last week. The Buffalo Bills’ second-year linebacker lost some snaps to veteran Ramon Humber during a loss to the Los Angeles Chargers. “Sometimes, it benefits a young player to be able to watch a series or two, get next to his coach on the sideline and learn a little bit (by) watchi…

MINNEAPOLIS – Truth be told, a blowout was expected Sunday. Just not this kind. Keyed by a lights-out defensive effort, the Buffalo Bills put together the upset of the young NFL season, shocking the Minnesota Vikings, 27-6, at U.S. Bank Stadium. For as outstanding as rookie quarterback Josh Allen played in the first half, the defense matched him every step of the …

Grading the Bills RUNNING GAME:  LeSean McCoy rushed nine times for 39 yards. It’s the ninth time in his past 17 games that McCoy has been held to less than 50 yards. McCoy had a long run of 27 yards, which means his other eight carries gained just 12 yards. That’s putting the Bills in obvious passing situations, which is bad news. Backup running backs Chris Ivory an…

Sean McDermott had seen enough. The Buffalo Bills’ coach took over play-calling duties from defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier in the second half of Sunday’s 31-20 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers in the home opener at New Era Field. “I just thought we needed a spark and that’s my background,” McDermott said in his postgame press conference. “Coach Frazier does a r…

1. AJ McCarron’s turn with the starters. We’re assuming this, but it would make sense given the rotation the team has used throughout training camp. All of the quarterbacks played well in the preseason opener, meaning the competition to be the starter remains wide open. McCarron can make his case with a strong showing against a Cleveland team that has a pair of good pass r…
