MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – There are no major surprises on the Buffalo Bills' list of inactives for Sunday's game against the Dolphins at Hard Rock Stadium. Running back T.J. Yeldon, wide receiver Duke Williams, tight end Tommy Sweeney, defensive tackle Vincent Taylor, safety Dean Marlowe and offensive linemen Ryan Bates and Ike Boettger won't play against Miami. The bigg…

This week’s Bills Mailbag starts with expectations for this year’s team. What’s fair and what’s not? It also hits on sparking the offense, what would happen with a loss to Miami (here’s a hint: Stay away from social media) and Josh Allen’s continued struggles with the deep ball, plus much more. Let’s dive in … Dale Zuchlewski asks: Do you think the Bills’ brass understa…

CLEVELAND – The Buffalo Bills signed kicker Stephen Hauschka to a two-year contract extension before the 2019 season started with moments like Sunday in mind. Trailing by three points against the Cleveland Browns at FirstEnergy Stadium, Hauschka came onto the field with 22 seconds remaining. Convert a 53-yard field goal, and the Bills and Browns likely go to overtime. …

CLEVELAND – The Buffalo Bills are sticking with the same set of wide receivers in Week 10. That means Duke Williams is a healthy inactive for the second straight game. The Bills will go with John Brown, Cole Beasley, Isaiah McKenzie, Robert Foster and Andre Roberts at receiver against the Browns at FirstEnergy Stadium. The Bills did not list any players on their fina…

The Buffalo Bills continue to look for the right mix at wide receiver. On Sunday at New Era Field, that means Duke Williams is the odd man out. Williams, who made his professional debut in Week 5 against Tennessee and caught the go-ahead touchdown pass, will be a healthy inactive against the Washington Redskins. Williams suffered a shoulder injury against Miami in We…

The second-guessing of offensive Brian Daboll reached a fever pitch Sunday. The Buffalo Bills’ offensive coordinator took plenty of heat on social media from  fans during a 31-13 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles at New Era Field. The first major issue with Daboll’s game plan came in the second quarter. Facing a third-and-2 coming out of the two-minute warning, the off…

The Buffalo Bills will get a key part of their defense back Sunday. Linebacker Matt Milano is active and will play against the Philadelphia Eagles at New Era Field. Milano, a third-year veteran, missed last week's win over the Miami Dolphins with a hamstring injury suffered in Week 5 against the Titans. In a game that figures to be run-heavy based on the wet and wind…

Analysis

When the Bills run: Veteran Frank Gore continues to lead the Buffalo Bills in rushing, with 388 yards on 86 carries. Gore has faced eight-plus defenders in the box on 38.4% of his rushing attempts this season, according to the NFL’s Next Gen stats, which makes his 4.5-yards-per-carry average even more impressive. The Bills eased Devin Singletary back into action last week …

General managers around the NFL apparently didn’t get the memo that the league’s trade deadline this year doesn’t arrive until 4 p.m. Oct. 29. There have been deals aplenty dating back to the start of the regular season, with the most recent coming Tuesday when the Jacksonville Jaguars sent cornerback Jalen Ramsey to the Los Angeles Rams for a pair of first-round draft …

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – At one point in the second half Sunday, the Buffalo Bills had lost five starters to injury. Out went veteran center Mitch Morse, and in went veteran offensive lineman Spencer Long, who has 44 career starts. Out went rookie right tackle Cody Ford – who was pulling full-time duty with veteran Ty Nsekhe out because of an ankle injury – and in went Rya…

Running game: B- It came alive at the end. Taking over with 4:12 left in the fourth quarter, the Buffalo Bills were able to run out the clock thanks to the ground game. 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…

Analysis

NFL teams are fond of looking at the schedule in quarters. When the Buffalo Bills do so, they’ll come away feeling awfully good about the first one of the 2019 season – even if it ended on a sour note. The Bills went 3-1 in the first quarter of this season, a record that has them in a postseason spot if the season ended today. The one loss came Sunday against the New…

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…

Bills

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.…

It’s been a long time since Dawson Knox found the end zone. Like, a really long time. You have to go back to 2013, when Knox was a gangly junior for Brentwood Academy in Brentwood, Tenn. He would suffer an ankle injury in the first game of his senior year, then played three seasons of college football for Ole Miss without reaching the end zone. His personal scorin…
