Jonesing for yet another reason to hate the New England Patriots? The worst day of a Patriot's life probably ranks among the more rewarding experiences of his career. That's right. Even when a Patriot gets fired, there's a chance he'll look back upon the moment gratefully. For about as long as the Buffalo Bills have failed to reach the playoffs, we've been inundat…

Last week, the Bills went into their game against the Chiefs facing a defense that was one of the stingiest in the league in terms of receiving production from opposing running backs. On average, opposing ball-carries were catching 3.8 passes for 23.5 yards per game against Kansas City. Buffalo's duo of LeSean McCoy and Travaris Cadet amassed 51 receiving yards on se…

The Buffalo Bills made it clear they wanted to incorporate running backs into the passing game in 2017, and the recent addition of Travaris Cadet has undoubtedly helped Buffalo's ball carriers maintain their efficiency as receivers this season. Over the past two weeks — he made his Bills debut against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 11 — Cadet has averaged 2.50 yards p…

1. Buffalo Bills receiver Kelvin Benjamin has a torn meniscus in his right knee, the team confirmed Monday. Benjamin, who was acquired from the Carolina Panthers at the trade deadline, was injured in the Bills' Week 11 loss to the Los Angles Chargers. He was originally classified as questionable for Sunday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs, but downgraded to out aft…

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Buffalo Bills’ confidence in Zay Jones has never wavered. The rookie receiver is starting to show why. Jones scored the team’s only touchdown Sunday in a 16-10 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium, an 11-yard catch in the first quarter. “That was definitely big for us right there,” quarterback Tyrod Taylor said. Jones was…

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Buffalo Bills have found something in Travaris Cadet. Although he's been active for just two games, Cadet continued to state his case for why he should be the No. 2 running back moving forward with a solid showing Sunday during a 16-10 win over the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium. Cadet finished with 28 yards on six carries and caught t…

Grading the Bills RUNNING GAME: C In a word – meh. The Bills stuck with the run, racking up 37 attempts. Those produced just 104 yards though, a meager average of 2.8 per carry. LeSean McCoy continued his boom-or-bust season, being held to 49 yards on 22 carries. Negative plays continue to be a problem for the running game. There were seven carries that went for loss…

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Buffalo Bills are still alive in the AFC playoff race following Sunday's 16-10 victory over the Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium. Here are my 10 takeaways from the game. 1. Tyrod Taylor looked ... like Tyrod Taylor. The Buffalo Bills' quarterback returned from his one-game benching to go 19 of 29 for 183 yards and a touchdown. Taylor left you wanting m…

The Bills usage of their running backs in the passing game and the Chiefs defense against pass-catching running back — something has got to give on Sunday. Heading into Week 12, the Chiefs are tied with the Seahawks for the lowest amount of catches (38) to running backs. They've also given up the fewest receiving yards to running backs (235) and have yet to surrendered …

Analysis

When the Bills pass: Around and around the quarterback carousel spins, with Tyrod Taylor taking his turn this week. The Bills turned back to Taylor after Nathan Peterman threw up all over himself in his first professional start, tossing five interceptions in a disastrous showing against the Chargers. Taylor said he was he was going to be the starter for this week, so we’ve…

Even at 28 years old, Travaris Cadet is finding ways to redefine himself. The 6-foot-1 back thrust himself into the national conversation this week by steamrolling Chargers safety Tre Boston at the end of a screen play Sunday. Cadet, normally known for his elusiveness, earned NFL Network's Angriest Run of the Week honor for the power move. https://www.youtube.com/wat…

Bills Mafia could use a little bit of a pick me up these days, so there's this: Wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin did not suffer any ligament damage when he injured his right knee Sunday against the Los Angeles Chargers. Even better, safety Micah Hyde should be fine, as well, after suffering a knee injury of his own in the 54-24 loss. Coach Sean McDermott provided those upd…

CARSON, Calif. – The last thing the Buffalo Bills need on offense right now is a major injury. Unfortunately, that might be exactly what they got against the Los Angeles Chargers in a brutal showing Sunday. No. 1 wideout Kelvin Benjamin suffered a right knee injury on the fourth play from scrimmage during the Bills’ 54-24 loss at StubHub Center. Coach Sean McDermott …

The Buffalo Bills’ grip on a playoff spot is slipping away. Back-to-back (ugly) losses to the New York Jets and New Orleans Saints have dropped the Bills to 5-4. While they currently hold the sixth and final postseason spot in the AFC, there is no shortage of teams giving chase. One of those is Sunday’s opponent, the Los Angeles Chargers. A win for the Bills would no…

The analytics website Pro Football Focus uses color coding for its grading of NFL players. Green is good, white is average and red is bad. As you might imagine following Week 10, there was plenty of red following the Bills’ performance against the New Orleans Saints. On offense, just one “green” was recorded. That was by rookie left tackle Dion Dawkins. “I don't real…
