Make no mistake about what's resting on Josh Allen's shoulder pads as he begins his second season as the Buffalo Bills' quarterback. "He's going to be the biggest reason for our offensive numbers to trend in the right direction," Bills General Manager Brandon Beane said. It was a succinct, matter-of-fact delivery, sounding more like expectation than hope. And that's …

The voices are always in Don Beebe’s head, sounding as vivid as they did nearly 30 years ago. Marv Levy. Bill Polian. John Butler. They instantly made a believer out of Beebe when, after making a splash at the NFL Scouting Combine by running a 4.25-second 40-yard dash, he joined the Buffalo Bills as a third-round draft pick from Chadron (Neb.) State in 1989. They convin…

The trio of Jim Nantz, Tony Romo and Tracy Wolfson will have the call for Sunday's Bills-Jaguars playoff game on CBS. Wolfson tweeted their assignment Monday. The four playoff games on Wild-Card Weekend have been divided among the four networks — NBC, ESPN, Fox and CBS — so it makes sense that CBS would assign its top team to its lone game. Wolfson also noted that…

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Both teams have downplayed the vengeance. Buffalo Bills cornerback Tre'Davious White skillfully counteracted inflammatory statements he made right after New England Patriots tight Rob Gronkowski delivered a flying elbow to the back of the rookie's head just three weeks ago. Gronkowski twice said Friday he has concentrated on preparing "with the bo…

The Bills earned CBS' top billing this Sunday for their matchup with the Patriots, drawing CBS' No. 1 broadcast crew of Jim Nantz on play-by-play, Tony Romo as the analysis and Tracy Wolfson on the sidelines. The trio previously called the Bills' Thursday night game against the Jets in Week 8. CBS' other Sunday games this week are Texans-Titans, Chiefs-Jets, Colts-Ja…

Bills fans will get their first chance to listen to Tony Romo calling their favorite team when the Bills play on Thursday Night Football at the Jets. Romo, the former Dallas Cowboys quarterback, is in his first year as an analyst and has generally gotten rave reviews for his work. Romo has drawn some criticism for identifying the play calls before they happen, but he co…

CBS Sports and Fox Sports on Tuesday revealed their announcing teams for the 2017 NFL season. Hall of Famer and former Bills receiver James Lofton joins the CBS lineup this year as a game analyst, paired with Andrew Catalon. Tony Romo replaces Phil Simms as a member of CBS' top NFL team, joining Jim Nantz and Tracy Wolfson in the booth. Simms is joining James Brown a…

While it must bolster Jim Kelly's ego to know he has been irreplaceable for 20 years, he'd rather watch another quarterback take his Buffalo Bills back to the playoffs. Snow falling on a frigid January afternoon, a miserable opponent and Bills fans going bonkers for their boys ... That's what Kelly and Super Bowl teammates Thurman Thomas, Bruce Smith and Steve Tasker…

NEW YORK – Sports gambling is evil. Forever has it been the most sinister threat to darken sports’ door. That’s what sports commissioners have warned us. Then they found a way to get in on the action. Federal legislation unwittingly permitted a daily fantasy sports eruption, bringing unforeseen sponsorship dollars and investment opportunities to leagues, teams …

Of the NFL’s 32 starting quarterbacks, none is known less by his fan base than Kyle Orton. Orton joined the Buffalo Bills eight days before the season began. As a backup the first four games, he wasn’t interviewed much. He hasn’t been too talkative since he took over for EJ Manuel three weeks ago either. We can look at Orton’s statistics over the past decade to gain …
