When the Buffalo Bills run: The Bills’ 244-yard explosion on the ground against Denver has moved them up to fifth in the league in rushing, at 139.2 yards per game. It’s safe to say they don’t miss LeSean McCoy. Running the ball is paramount against the Dallas Cowboys, who have the best offense in the league. The best way to neutralize that is to keep the offense off the f…

There’s never a good time for an injury. For Cole Beasley, though, there could not have been a worse time than Sunday. The Buffalo Bills’ wide receiver was down on the New Era Field turf with 4:19 remaining in the second quarter, surrounded by athletic trainers. Beasley looked to be in a good deal of pain, but was able to bounce up and walk off the field under his ow…

Duke Williams still has to wait his turn. The Buffalo Bills' wide receiver is on the list of inactives for his team's game Sunday against the Denver Broncos at New Era Field. Given that the Bills scored a season-high 37 points last week against Miami, it's not a big surprise they decided to keep the offensive lineup the same, which means Williams will sit for a fourth s…

It was the night before the NFC championship game in 2015, and Julius Peppers had something to say. The Green Bay Packers’ defensive end told coaches to leave the final team meeting so that he could address his teammates. Micah Hyde was a second-year safety on that team and watched in stunned silence as the future Hall of Famer delivered the final message before his tea…

Analysis

When the Bills run: Ball security was presumably a big focus for Devin Singletary during the week. The rookie fumbled twice against Miami, mistakes that were largely forgotten because the Bills were able to recover both times. The Bills have been remarkably lucky with fumbles, recovering 10 of the 15 times they’ve put the ball on the ground on offense. Singletary also n…

Nsekhe was hurt in the third quarter of Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins when his leg was rolled up on by a Dolphins player.

Jim Salgado had a couple of childhood friends come visit him last week at One Bills Drive. A defensive assistant on coach Sean McDermott’s staff, Salgado gave his buddies a tour of the team facilities. As he was walking through the state-of-the-art performance center and then out onto the practice field inside the fieldhouse, a thought struck Salgado. “It just showed…

After Frank Gore was stopped for a 1-yard loss on first down, T.J. Yeldon ripped off an 11-yard gain on second down to move the chains. Gore then went for 11 yards and followed that with a 19-yard gain. Af…

Through four games of the 2019 NFL season one thing is definitely clear in Buffalo – the Bills’ secondary is elite. That was showcased last week as the Bills held Tom Brady and the New England Patriots' offense to only nine points. What’s more impressive is that Buffalo held Brady and Co. to 18 completions on 39 pass attempts for 150 yards passing and an interception. W…

Analysis

A new year has so far not brought new results for the Buffalo Bills’ special teams. The “third phase of the game” was one of the main reasons the team lost to New England on Sunday. The Bills gave up a blocked punt that was returned for a touchdown and missed a 49-yard field goal at the end of the first half, plays that proved pivotal in a 16-10 loss at New Era Field…

Running game: B Buffalo Bills running back Frank Gore is something else. He surpassed 15,000 career rushing yards, finishing with 109 yards on just 17 carries. The 36-year-old averaged 6.4 yards per rush, and hit his milestone with a classic, 41-yard run in which he knifed through the middle of the New England Patriots’ defense and bounced off of multiple tackle attempts.…
