The numbers don’t look good for the Buffalo Bills’ offensive line. The team’s quarterbacks have been sacked 11 times in two weeks, a figure that ranks as second most in the NFL behind only Seattle (12). It’s easy to point the finger at the beleaguered offensive line for that number, but it’s not entirely fair, according to offensive coordinator Brian Daboll. “Obvious…

LeSean McCoy spoke out Wednesday against allegations of child abuse made against him by the mother of his son, calling them "ridiculous." In an affidavit filed Tuesday in Fulton County (Georgia) court, Stephanie Maisonet — the mother of a 6-year-old boy with McCoy — sided with McCoy's ex-girlfriend, Delicia Cordon, in her lawsuit against the Buffalo Bills' running back.…

Analysis

When the Buffalo Bills run: LeSean McCoy had a 27-yard run, but was held to just 12 yards on his other eight carries against the Los Angeles Chargers. The running game being unable to pick up 4 or 5 yards at a time is putting the team behind the sticks in a big way. Overall, Buffalo ranks 25th in rushing through two weeks, averaging 83.5 yards per game. Quarterback Josh Al…

Sean McDermott provided more details Monday on why he decided to take over making the Buffalo Bills’ defensive play calls in Sunday’s game against the Los Angeles Chargers, but stopped short of saying whether the move would be permanent. Defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier “and I are still working through that,” McDermott said. “Either way, Leslie is going to be a big …

Los Angeles Chargers linebacker Uchenna Nwosu has again apologized to Buffalo Bills running back Taiwan Jones. Nwosu hit Jones after Jones' helmet was knocked off Sunday. Nwosu said in a text message to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport that he did "not realize that his helmet had come off" and his "intention is never to hurt anyone." Jones recovered a muffed punt by M…

Vontae Davis can save his explanation for why he ditched his teammates in the middle of a game. Buffalo Bills coach Sean McDermott doesn't want or need to hear it. Davis said Monday that he has not spoken with Davis since the two-time Pro Bowl cornerback left New Era Field at halftime of Sunday's 31-20 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers and later announced his retireme…

It’s accepted – maybe even expected – that rookie quarterback Josh Allen will go through some growing pains. The same is true for Bills middle linebacker Tremaine Edmunds. Some of them were on display Sunday in a 31-20 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers at New Era Field. “Me in particular, every play that I have the opportunity to make, I definitely want to make it,” E…

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.

Before Josh Allen can execute his first play Sunday, he first has to call it. Sounds simple, right? Not always, especially for rookie quarterbacks in the NFL. “I’ve been around some young quarterbacks before, and the play clock – it’s real,” Buffalo Bills coach Sean McDermott said this week. “To get in and out of the huddle on time is a challenge sometimes for you…

Sean McDermott offered little insight this week about his decision to replace Nathan Peterman with Josh Allen as the Buffalo Bills’ starting quarterback for Sunday’s home opener against the Los Angeles Chargers at New Era Field, merely repeating that it was the “best move for our team.” “Yeah, look, I don’t feel the need, honestly, to elaborate,” the coach said. Whil…

As you might imagine, Nathan Peterman's meltdown in Week 1 inspired plenty of questions for this week's mailbag. Let's get to them ... Brendan Sweet asks: What are the chances the Bills bring in a veteran quarterback and release Nathan Peterman? If so, who would it be? Any chance they'd sign Colin Kaepernick? Brian Vattimo asks: Don’t you think the Bills should add a…
