Brandon Beane’s perfect world involves re-signing his own free agents. We live in an imperfect world, though, so it remains to be seen whether the Buffalo Bills’ third-year general manager stands by that between now and March. The Bills have eight pending unrestricted free agents, which is a big change from last year, when Beane had 18 pending unrestricted free agent…

Sean McDermott was asked Monday during his season-ending press conference if it was fair to grade his team on a curve, given the youth of the roster and the salary cap situation heading into the year. “I understand where you’re coming from with that and I’m more concerned right now with the direction of the organization, the direction of our football team,” the Buffalo …

Analysis

When the Bills run: It’s still hard to believe LeSean McCoy’s last 11 carries against the Patriots went for just 1 yard. It’s understandable why McCoy was so frustrated after the loss. Chris Ivory is just 13 yards behind McCoy for the Bills’ rushing lead, although McCoy has played two fewer games. Neither player is averaging better than 3.4 yards per carry. The Bears have …

Buckle up, Bills fans, because the Nathan Peterman Experience might be taking off again. Quarterback Derek Anderson suffered a concussion Monday night against the New England Patriots, coach Sean McDermott announced Tuesday. With rookie Josh Allen already ruled out for the Week 9 home game against the Chicago Bears, the Bills might be forced into playing Peterman, the o…

The Buffalo Bills’ defense largely returned to form Monday night. A week after laying an egg against lowly Indianapolis, the Bills’ defense gave the team a fighting chance against the mighty New England Patriots on the national stage at New Era Field. Consider this: The last time the Patriots failed to score a touchdown through three quarters in a game in which Tom B…

Shaq Lawson might not ever become the type of game-changing defensive end the Buffalo Bills’ previous front office thought it was getting when it chose him in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft. That doesn’t mean he’s not a contributor, though. Lawson has carved out a role as a rotational defensive lineman, seeing time at both end and tackle this year. His playing ti…

The extra day of preparation that Derek Anderson gets this week comes at a good time. The Buffalo Bills’ veteran quarterback showed up on the injury report Thursday as a limited practice participant. Anderson was listed as having calf and back injuries, which would go along with what he had to say after Sunday’s loss to Indianapolis. “I don’t feel great right now. I’…

It’ll be Derek Anderson against Tom Brady. Buffalo Bills coach Josh Allen ruled rookie quarterback Josh Allen out Monday for the team’s Week 8 prime-time game against the New England Patriots, meaning the 35-year-old Anderson will make his second start for the team. The first one didn’t go so well, as Anderson accounted for four of the Bills’ five turnovers with thre…

INDIANAPOLIS – Things can always get worse with the Buffalo Bills. Star running back LeSean McCoy suffered a concussion Sunday during the team’s embarrassing 37-5 loss to the Indianapolis Colts. It’s the latest blow to a beleaguered offense that is the worst in the NFL. McCoy was hit along the Colts’ sideline by Indianapolis cornerback Kenny Moore II on Buffalo’s sec…

INDIANAPOLIS – Cam Phillips will make his debut for the Buffalo Bills on Sunday against the Colts. The rookie receiver from Virginia Tech is active with fellow rookie Ray-Ray McCloud out for a noninjury reason after not making the trip Saturday. Phillips replaced another rookie receiver, Robert Foster, on the active roster this week. Foster then took the spot on the pra…

Words have turned into actions for the Buffalo Bills. A little more than a year ago, a team meeting was called the night before a home game against the Denver Broncos. The push for social-justice reform had never been stronger in the league, spurred on by President Donald Trump’s inciteful comments about players who protested during the national anthem. Team owners T…

Lorenzo Alexander is honest about the predicament the Buffalo Bills find themselves in at the moment. “Right now, we're not good enough just to win on defense,” the veteran linebacker said Thursday. “We have to win at least two of three of the phases, if not all three, if we want to find ourselves in the position to win at the end of games.” It’s not a shock that the…
