When the Bills run: Jon Feliciano has been one of the team’s unsung heroes. The Buffalo Bills have run often behind their right guard, with 21 plays that are averaging 5.67 yards. That ranks fourth in the NFL. The Bills are also good at going straight up the gut. They have 41 runs up the middle, which are averaging 5.22 yards. That ranks fifth. That’s not much of a surpris…

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – At one point in the second half Sunday, the Buffalo Bills had lost five starters to injury. Out went veteran center Mitch Morse, and in went veteran offensive lineman Spencer Long, who has 44 career starts. Out went rookie right tackle Cody Ford – who was pulling full-time duty with veteran Ty Nsekhe out because of an ankle injury – and in went Rya…

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Duke Williams cried before Sunday’s game as he looked in the mirror, staring at the man he’d become. The 26-year-old rookie wide receiver, promoted from the Buffalo Bills’ practice squad Saturday, was about to play in his first regular season NFL game. And hours later, he’d catch the game-winning touchdown, a seven-yard dart from quarterback Josh Alle…

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…

Zay Jones, the Buffalo Bills' No. 3 receiver, finished with two catches for 4 yards, despite being targeted eight times. The plays Jones didn’t make were much bigger than the couple he did. He was the intended target on fourth-and-goal from the 3-yard line in the fourth quarter, but couldn’t haul in a high pass from backup quarterback Matt Barkley. “It was a fade ball. …

Frank Gore entered some ultra exclusive company Sunday. The Buffalo Bills’ veteran became just the fourth running back in NFL history to rush for at least 15,000 yards, finishing with 109 against the New England Patriots in a 16-10 loss at New Era Field. Gore got to the milestone in style, with a 41-yard rush straight up the gut in the second quarter in which he boun…

Buffalo Bills running back Devin Singletary had his helmet and was stretching with his teammates in the early part of Thursday's practice, a sign of progress from his injured hamstring. He was listed as a limited participant in practice, coach Sean McDermott said, noting he "did some nice things." McDermott did not offer more on what that might mean for Singletary's ava…

It’s taken Josh Allen a dozen career starts to do something it took his predecessors years to accomplish. After the come-from-behind win against the New York Jets in Week 1, the Buffalo Bills’ second-year quarterback has now directed three fourth-quarter comebacks and four game-winning drives. Based on research at pro-football-reference.com, Allen’s four game-winning…

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…

Week 1 is here, and you brought the heat this week. The Bills Mailbag is stuffed full of questions, leading with former Bills receiver Antonio Brown (just kidding).

Let's get right to it ... K…

Jerry Hughes felt like he was back in grade school. On the bus ride from Spartanburg, S.C., to Charlotte, N.C., following the Buffalo Bills’ joint practices last month with the Carolina Panthers, coach Sean McDermott made a pit stop. The entire team – 91 players, plus coaches and staff – stopped at Lemmons Farms in Gaffney, S.C. McDermott used to visit the farm regul…

The Buffalo Bills are about as close to full health as they can be heading into the season opener. The only player on the 53-man roster to miss Monday’s practice was tight end Tyler Kroft. That has been the case for him since the first practice of the spring, when he suffered a broken foot. The difference is, throughout training camp and the preseason, Kroft was on t…
