NFL teams are fond of looking at the schedule in quarters. When the Buffalo Bills do so, they’ll come away feeling awfully good about the first one of the 2019 season – even if it ended on a sour note. The Bills went 3-1 in the first quarter of this season, a record that has them in a postseason spot if the season ended today. The one loss came Sunday against the New…

A new year has so far not brought new results for the Buffalo Bills’ special teams. The “third phase of the game” was one of the main reasons the team lost to New England on Sunday. The Bills gave up a blocked punt that was returned for a touchdown and missed a 49-yard field goal at the end of the first half, plays that proved pivotal in a 16-10 loss at New Era Field…

Running game: B Buffalo Bills running back Frank Gore is something else. He surpassed 15,000 career rushing yards, finishing with 109 yards on just 17 carries. The 36-year-old averaged 6.4 yards per rush, and hit his milestone with a classic, 41-yard run in which he knifed through the middle of the New England Patriots’ defense and bounced off of multiple tackle attempts.…

RUNNING GAME: B- At least early, the question to be asked was “what running game?” The Bills ran 17 consecutive pass plays to open the game. The first run didn’t come until the final play of the first quarter – a 1-yard gain by Frank Gore. The bulk of the Bills’ rushing in the first half came from quarterback Josh Allen, who scrambled his way to eight carries for 27 yar…

It was an easy play to notice, even deep into the fourth quarter of a first preseason game when attention begins to wane as few recognizable names occupy the field. Vosean Joseph's teammates on the Buffalo Bills' sideline were among those paying attention. They also took care of the sound effects that might have been lacking because of the many empty seats at New Era Fi…
