By now, the Buffalo Bills are used to life on the road. Sunday's game against the Indianapolis Colts closes a brutal stretch of five road games in the first seven weeks of the season.

Don't blame Tyrod Taylor for Sunday's loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. No, he wasn't perfect. But the Buffalo Bills could be 5-0 if they had better receivers, or maybe if they used them at all. The Bills are in better shape than we expected. They enter their bye week tied atop the AFC East at 3-2, same as the New England Patriots and New York Jets. They hung tough …

What pills these new Buffalo general managers are. They sat in front of the cameras and droned on about infrastructure and collaboration and character and the process and my goodness ... When will one of these guys make a trade already? The Pegulas apparently have forsaken entertainment and are out to bore us. At introductory news conferences Thursday and Friday, we …

Natalie Perez-Smith didn't know what to make of the digital message she saw on an Elmwood Avenue parking meter. "dEAd." The 20-year Buffalo cop never had seen that before. So she snapped a picture to dispute the possible ticket for parking at a conked out meter. Then Perez-Smith headed into the restaurant for a spirited chat about how inoperable the NFL looks these d…

1. I’ve long been of the belief that NFL teams should draft at least one quarterback every year. That’s how important the position is. Bills General Manager Doug Whaley said last year it’s something the team “would lean heavily to considering every year.” Whaley, however, hasn't picked a quarterback in the two years he’s been running Buffalo’s draft. He has, however, draft…

NEW YORK -- We'll know this evening if the Buffalo Bills have another Pro Football Hall of Famer.
