The Buffalo Bills stayed relevant for another week. Sunday's 33-18 victory over the Arizona Cardinals gave the Bills a glimmer of hope in what had been an otherwise miserable season.

Look, we all saw this coming. The Buffalo Bills began with two dyspeptic losses and fired their offensive coordinator five days into the season and were playing without their top receiver against a popular preseason Super Bowl pick.

You have to hand it to new Bills offensive coordinator Anthony Lynn. He got the Bills’ playmakers back to looking like playmakers in the 33-18 rout of the Arizona Cardinals. No Sammy Watkins?

The Buffalo Bills have had 10 long days to get ready for the Arizona Cardinals.

The Buffalo Bills have their backs against the wall. A loss Sunday to the Arizona Cardinals would drop them to three games out of the AFC East lead just days into the falls, and decrease their already small playoff chances to infinitesimal. It would also turn up the heat even more on embattled head coach Rex... Read More

No player reaches his 13th NFL season without being asked about retirement, if next year will be his last, how much more he has to give or whether there's anything left to prove. Whispers took only until opening night to resurface for Larry Fitzgerald, a seemingly eternal sun the Arizona Cardinals have revolved around... Read More

You know that whole idea about how the New England Patriots will stop being the New England Patriots once Tom Brady stops playing? Yeah, it might be time to rethink that.
