Losing Kyle Williams is going to hurt the leadership of any locker room. The Buffalo Bills, though, look as if they should be able to withstand it. Veteran linebacker Lorenzo Alexander figures to immediately step into that role, but he’s already announced the 2019 season will be his last. That means the Bills will be looking for another defensive player to emerge. As…

ATLANTA – Stephon Gilmore earned a new nickname in the Boston media this week: The Silent Assassin. The New England Patriots’ cornerback is so named because of his quiet nature. Behind that guarded persona, however, is a dominant player at his position. Two years after leaving the Buffalo Bills, the team that selected him 10th overall in the 2012 NFL Draft, Gilmore’s ga…

ATLANTA — This wasn’t Robert Woods with the Buffalo Bills. Not the 1,219 yards in receptions. Not the 86 catches. Not the six touchdowns. Nothing about those four seasons in a Bills uniform resembled what Woods did in 2018 with the Los Angeles Rams, and what he has continued to do in the postseason. It’s as if Woods was rediscovered, as if that second-round draft pic…

"Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in!" Bills fans likely were saying that to themselves last week watching their team's 27-6 demolition of the Minnesota Vikings. One thing is certain after that result: The next few weeks have gotten a lot more interesting. On to this week's mailbag ... @atv3 asks: Watching the success of Robert Woods, Marquise Goodwin…

It's hard to believe, but we're only five days away from football. The annual Hall of Fame game takes place Thursday between the Baltimore Ravens and Chicago Bears in Canton, Ohio. Aside from being the first game of the new season, Bills fans may be interested to tune in and see the Ravens, Buffalo's Week 1 opponent. Like the Bills, the Ravens have a first-round rookie …

Rams wide receiver Robert Woods had a big day Sunday. The former Bill posted a career-high 171 yards receiving and a pair of touchdowns, including this 94-yarder, against the Texans. The play was the longest from scrimmage in the Rams franchise since Bucky Pope caught a 95-yard TD pass from Bill Munson in Week 14 in 1964, according to the NFL. https://twitter.com/NFL…

Former Bills receivers Robert Woods and Sammy Watkins were both trending on Twitter early Sunday afternoon. The reason: Long touchdowns in the span for 2:08 for the Los Angeles Rams against the New York Giants. Facing third-and-33, the Rams ran a wide receiver screen to Woods, who turned it into a 53-yard touchdown. It was his first TD of the season. According to ESP…

The dizzying number of changes implemented by the Buffalo Bills heading into the 2017 season have been well-documented. Just 22 players who appeared in a game for the team at any point last year are back this year. A total of 21 offensive players who accounted for 3,752 snaps and 20 defensive players who took 7,089 snaps in 2016 are either playing elsewhere or out of th…

Preston Brown watched this offseason as, one by one, the Buffalo Bills said goodbye to his veteran teammates. Stephon Gilmore? Off to New England. Aaron Williams and Corey Graham? Cut. Robert Woods? Back home to L.A. Sammy Watkins and Ronald Darby? Sent on their way in trades. "I mean we traded away some good players, some good players signed other places, but I thin…

The Buffalo Bills insist they’re focused on the 2017 season – even if everyone else is looking ahead. With six picks in the top three rounds, and a possible avenue to acquire even more, the 2018 draft will likely determine the success or failure of Brandon Beane and Sean McDermott in Buffalo. If the team’s general manager and head coach can nab a franchise quarterback w…

Tyrod Taylor's morning began with a car accident. Barely on his way to New Era Field, his black 2013 Mercedes G63 wagon was involved in a fender bender downtown. The Buffalo Bills sent a car to collect their quarterback. Saturday's game against the Miami Dolphins also started poorly for him. The Bills went three and out on their first two possessions. Taylor passed thre…

Remember those vibrating electric football games? Yeah, there was more tackling in those. In those Tudor Games tabletop enterprises, all the defenders have to do to stop the ball carrier is touch him. That's what the Buffalo Bills tried to devastatingly poor effect on Christmas Eve at New Era Field. The Miami Dolphins' would-be tacklers weren't much better, but th…

Buffalo Bills fans deserve better. Sunday morning began with local and national reports about Rex Ryan's dubious future. Then the grounds crew tilled the rubber pellets out of New Era Field's artificial turf while trying to clear snow at halftime. All the while, the Pittsburgh Steelers plowed the Bills more thoroughly yet. The Bills were overwhelmed, 27-20, in a game…

It’s shaping up to be the question facing the Buffalo Bills over the final month of what looks like another lost season. Should the team pick up quarterback Tyrod Taylor’s contract option in March? To do so would require a significant financial commitment. Here are the particulars: Taylor is due a $15.5 million option bonus by the third day of the 2017 league year, w…

When the Buffalo Bills revealed this year's promotional slogan, all I could think of were the ways it would backfire. It's a double entendre. The fan base is unfailingly loyal, and the team sure does love to hand off. Bills Run Deep. As does the pain. You have to go back a lot of years to remember when the Bills regularly thrilled their fans. The last of the Su…
