For anyone who has followed The Buffalo News' staff selections in Friday's paper, you know that point spreads are not our friend.

The Buffalo Bills have had 10 long days to get ready for the Arizona Cardinals. Sitting on an 0-2 record, the Bills are desperate for a win, but face the daunting task of getting one without a couple key members of their offense. Buffalo has already declared two players out against Arizona and lists five players as... Read More

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

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.

The plot thickened regarding Sammy Watkins' status for Week Three on Thursday. The Buffalo Bills' star receiver sat out his second straight practice as he continues to deal with pain in his surgically repaired foot.

1. Stop going three-and-out. The Bills are punting after just three plays on 37 percent of their offensive drives through two games, which ranks 31st in the NFL. Only the Los Angeles Rams – with no touchdowns in two games – are worse. “There’s no doubt that’s a concern, so we’ve got to do a better job,”... Read More

Eric Wood has been down this road before. The Buffalo Bills’ center was a rookie in 2009 when then-coach Dick Jauron fired offensive coordinator Turk Schonert just two weeks before the season started. So Wood spoke from experience Monday about the type of change this year’s team can expect after Rex Ryan fired... Read More

When he was hired in January 2015, the enduring quote from Rex Ryan's introductory press conference came when he said he wanted to "build a bully." On Monday, the Buffalo Bills' coach reiterated that belief. "I want to build a bully, there's no question about it," Ryan said. "Offense, defense, special teams, without... Read More

Rex Ryan's uncanny ability to create a splashy headline shows no signs of slowing down. Check out the latest hot take from the Buffalo Bills' head coach, which he served up Monday about his twin brother, Rob, "I think my brother's done as good a job as anybody coaching in this league." As with just about every bit... Read More

There are still 14 games to in the 2016 season, but go ahead and mark down the official time of death for the Buffalo Bills at 11:39 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 15. That's when the clock ran out on a 37-31 loss to the New York Jets at New Era Field, and along with it, any realistic shot at ending a 16-year playoff... Read More

An 0-2 start to the season has left even the most optimistic of Bills fans wondering what's next. Will Rex Ryan get a pink slip? What about Doug Whaley? Will the team pick up Tyrod Taylor's contract option? Those are the types of questions that have to be asked after the Buffalo defense was shredded in a 37-31 loss... Read More

There's a trend developing among the Buffalo Bills' opponents. After the team's first two games this season, a defensive opponent has spilled the game plan against quarterback Tyrod Taylor. "We just have to keeep him in the pocket and make him be a quarterback," Jets safety Calvin Pryor said. "We gave up a couple big... Read More

The Buffalo Bills produced one of the ugliest opening-day offensive performances in club history Sunday. Four days later, the Bills' defense suffered one of their worst tramplings at home. The New York Jets won, 37-31, at New Era Field on Thursday night. They piled up 493 yards. A visitor had scored at least than... Read More

Marquise Goodwin returned to the end zone for the first time in nearly three years Thursday.

"Nothing feels better... Read More

Score one for Chan Gailey. The former Bills head coach showed his scheming brilliance in the New York Jets’ 37-31 victory over the Bills Thursday night. The Jets’ spread offense skewered the Bills’ defense for 493 yards. Wow. The game really was not as close as the score indicated. The Jets have a good... Read More

Nothing about this season makes sense for the Buffalo Bills through two games. The offense pulling a no-show in Baltimore? Didn't see that coming. The defense holding the Ravens to 13 points? A pleasant surprise! Then Thursday night, the alleged elite cornerback duo of Stephon Gilmore and Ronald Darby getting torched... Read More

By Tim Graham » Thursday, September 15, 2016

Unless you're a Buffalo Bills fan, Thursday night's game was entertaining to watch. But most of my readers happen to be Bills fans. Thoughts and prayers. The teams traded big plays throughout, but the New York Jets took command late in the third quarter to win, 37-31, at New Era Field. The Bills overcame a... Read More
