The key number for Kevin Johnson last year was 16. That’s the number of games played in the regular season by the Buffalo Bills’ cornerback. Add in his start in the playoff loss to Houston, and Johnson played the entire slate for the first time since he was a rookie in 2015 with the Texans. Considering Johnson had played just 19 games in the previous three seasons be…

Sean McDermott did his best to avoid them, but injuries still impacted the Buffalo Bills in their regular-season finale Sunday. The team's head coach chose to sit several starters in a meaningless game against the New York Jets at New Era Field. Cornerback Tre’Davious White, running back Devin Singletary, tight end Dawson Knox and wide receivers John Brown and Cole B…

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – Lorenzo Alexander called the Buffalo Bills’ loss to the New England Patriots on Saturday the “same, old story.” “We have to figure out how to make a play when we need to,” Alexander said after his team’s 24-17 loss at Gillette Stadium – a refrain that’s been echoed by too many Bills to count the last two decades. “I know I had a couple chances to do …

PITTSBURGH – Seemingly all the talk leading up to Sunday’s game between the Bills and Steelers was about the vaunted Pittsburgh defense. For good reason, too. The Steelers came into the game leading the NFL in sacks and takeaways. Those are the plays that get people talking. Here’s the thing, though. The Steelers’ defense was the second best at Heinz Field – both Sun…

The Buffalo Bills have responded after each of their first three losses in 2019. If they can do so again after their fourth loss – which came Sunday at New Era Field to the Baltimore Ravens – they’ll be headed to the postseason. The Bills have not had a two-game losing streak this year. After falling to New England in Week 4, the Bills came back to beat the Tenne…

The third quarter of the Buffalo Bills’ schedule played out exactly as the first two, with one key difference. The Bills went 3-1 again, the same as the first two quarters of the schedule, improving their record to 9-3 on the season. The difference, though, is how they looked doing it. There was no squeaking by the New York Jets or New York Giants, no second-half com…

Tony Bush peered through the lens of a borrowed camera from his section high atop Nissan Stadium in Nashville, where he sat alongside the visiting team’s family members and friends, and zoomed in to try to make out the number on the jersey. It was his future son-in-law, Jordan Poyer, writhing in pain on the turf. “From where I was, you could see the whole field, and …

Grading the Buffalo Bills in their 24-9 win over the Washington Redskins on Sunday at New Era Field … RUNNING GAME: C- Devin Singletary keeps it from being an F, but this was not a good day on the ground. How many times can a team make gaining a single yard look like the hardest thing to do in football? The Bills continue to count the ways. Singletary rushed 20 times …

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…

Running game: C+ Even with Buffalo Bills rookie Devin Singletary back in the lineup, it was veteran Frank Gore who continued to handle the bulk of the rushing duties. Gore gained 55 yards on 11 carries against his former team. He has 388 yards on the season and is on pace for 1,034. For a 36-year-old, that’s impressive. Quarterback Josh Allen, who ran wild against the M…

After losing five starters at one point during Sunday’s 14-7 win over the Tennessee Titans, coach Sean McDermott started his Monday press conference by announcing that for at least one of them – center Mitch Morse – the update was positive. “He’s moving in the right direction with his ankle,” McDerm…
