It didn’t rise to the level of Wade Phillips benching Doug Flutie for Rob Johnson, but Sean McDermott was still willing to make a rather significant change to his game-day roster heading into the postseason. McDermott played wide receiver Duke Williams against the Houston Texans in an AFC wild-card game earlier this month. Williams had been a healthy inactive for eight …

Sean McDermott and Brandon Beane will meet with the media Tuesday for their season-ending press conference, earlier than either of them would have preferred. The Buffalo Bills’ head coach and general manager will recap the 2019 season – one that ended Saturday with a 22-19 overtime loss to the Houston Texans in an AFC wild-card playoff game – while surely feeling like t…

HOUSTON — The Buffalo Bills will be without starting cornerback Levi Wallace on Saturday.

The Bills also made a big move at wide receiver. Duke Williams will play, while Robert Foster is a healthy ina…

Grading the Bills in their 13-6 loss to the New York Jets on Sunday at New Era Field … Running game: C- It’s never a good thing when your leading rusher is a wide receiver, as was the case Sunday. That’s what happens when you sit your best running back, which the Bills did with rookie Devin Singletary. Receiver Isaiah McKenzie took a couple of jet sweeps for 30 yards…

Analysis

When the Bills run: Don’t expect to see a lot of rookie Devin Singletary. That means Frank Gore and maybe even T.J. Yeldon will get the bulk of the work. It would be meaningful if the Bills could get Gore going heading into the playoffs. He’s coming off the first game of his 15-year career in which he did not log a single rushing attempt. Yeldon, meanwhile, has been a heal…

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – Lorenzo Alexander called the Buffalo Bills’ loss to the New England Patriots on Saturday the “same, old story.” “We have to figure out how to make a play when we need to,” Alexander said after his team’s 24-17 loss at Gillette Stadium – a refrain that’s been echoed by too many Bills to count the last two decades. “I know I had a couple chances to do …

PITTSBURGH – Seemingly all the talk leading up to Sunday’s game between the Bills and Steelers was about the vaunted Pittsburgh defense. For good reason, too. The Steelers came into the game leading the NFL in sacks and takeaways. Those are the plays that get people talking. Here’s the thing, though.

This week’s Bills Mailbag leads off with a hypothetical – What would the top 10 of the 2018 draft look like if teams had a do-over?

Robert Foster was seated at his locker last season following the Buffalo Bills’ first practice after their bye week. In a casual conversation, the then-rookie wide receiver was asked how he spent his time off. He responded by saying he stuck around Western New York. Why not head to a beach somewhere, or go back home? a reporter wondered. “Where I’m from,” Foster s…

When the Baltimore Ravens visit the Buffalo Bills on Sunday at New Era Field, it will be the second time Josh Allen and Lamar Jackson have opposed each other as NFL quarterbacks. It’s forgivable if you’re forgetting the first. Allow us to refresh your memory: Allen and the Bills opened the 2018 season in Baltimore. It was a game all involved on the Buffalo side would…

ARLINGTON, Texas – Tre’Davious White celebrated the Buffalo Bills’ big Thanksgiving win by having some fun at the expense of Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott. White hit the “Dak Dance,” a viral sensation born from Prescott’s warmup routine — which includes some rather vigorous hip action — toward the tail end of the Bills’ 26-15 victory at AT&T Stadium.
