PITTSFORD, N.Y. (AP) — Buffalo Bills offensive lineman Rodger Saffold missed the start of training camp Sunday after sustaining rib injuries in a car accident.
Coach Sean McDermott said the accident happened over the past few weeks, but didn't provide further details on the accident.
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — The Buffalo Bills released starting defensive tackle Star Lotulelei on Friday in a move which frees up much-needed salary cap space at a position the team spent restocking in free agency this week.
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Mike Shula was hired on Tuesday to be Buffalo Bills senior offensive assistant in coach Sean McDermott’s latest move to restructure his staff following Brian Daboll’s offseason departure.
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y (AP) — Buffalo Bills linebackers coach Bob Babich has retired and is being replaced by his son, Bobby.
The Bills announced several coaching moves Thursday, including the retirement of the elder Babich, who served as their linebackers coach for the past five seasons.
Even the winning coach, in this case Andy Reid, is questioning the NFL's overtime setup.
One day after Reid's Chiefs won the OT coin toss, then marched downfield for Travis Kelce's 8-yard touchdown reception to end an epic divisional round game with Buffalo, Reid recognized how fortunate Kansas City was.
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — A second consecutive postseason matchup pitting Buffalo’s Josh Allen against Kansas City’s Patrick Mahomes seemed almost inevitable after two of the NFL’s top young quarterbacks met in last year’s AFC championship game.
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — If not for the sheer fact of being bald, Bills coach Sean McDermott acknowledges what hair he could grow would have turned grayer during a season in which Buffalo teetered on the brink of collapse before clinching a third consecutive playoff berth.
Maybe this time the Buffalo Bills have finally learned their lesson on the importance of running the ball.
The pass-happy Bills have turned to the running game with more frequency in recent weeks, and they’ve been rewarded for it.
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Bills quarterback Josh Allen is expected to start Sunday against Carolina after he got hurt last weekend against Tampa Bay.
Allen sprained his left foot in the second half of Buffalo’s 33-27 overtime loss to the Buccaneers.
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — The mere sight of Josh Allen limping into the post-game interview room with his left foot in a protective boot cast an ominous cloud over the Bills’ hopes of remaining in the playoff picture in the final four weeks of the season.
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Josh Allen put together an amazing performance despite playing much of the game with a leg injury.
Allen threw for 308 yards and two touchdowns and ran for 109 yards and a touchdown in the Buffalo Bills' 33-27 overtime loss to the Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday.
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — The Buffalo Bills will be minus their top run-stuffing defensive tackle, Star Lotulelei, against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday.
Lotulelei was ruled out on Friday because of a toe injury.
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — The Buffalo Bills appear to be in denial identifying their shortcomings and the challenges ahead in staying afloat in the AFC playoff picture.
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Whether it was the gusting wind or New England’s unrelenting running attack, the Buffalo Bills' two biggest deficiencies this season were exposed yet again on Monday night.
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Bills safety Jordan Poyer can appreciate the message coach Sean McDermott is attempting to send in publicly referring to Buffalo’s next opponent as “the first-place New England Patriots.”
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — In Devin McCourty’s 12 NFL seasons, the Patriots safety has seen plenty of the Buffalo Bills.
He’s never seen them playing as well and as difficult to figure out as they’ve been the past three seasons.
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — With things going from bad to worse, the Buffalo Bills don’t have much time to regroup ahead of their next game.
In their eyes, that’s a good thing.
“I think it’s very fortunate that we have a Thursday night game that we have to turn our attention to,” quarterback Josh Allen said.
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Buffalo Bills coach Sean McDermott on Friday ruled out starting middle linebacker Tremaine Edmunds from playing at the New York Jets on Sunday.
Edmunds didn't practice this week after sustaining a hamstring injury in a 9-6 loss at Jacksonville last week.
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — For a coach who generally avoids criticizing his team in public, Sean McDermott was honest in assessing the sorry state of the Buffalo Bills' running attack on Wednesday.
The struggles, McDermott said, aren’t limited to Buffalo’s dud in a 9-6 loss at Jacksonville last weekend, or to this season alone.
Coaches Ron Rivera and Sean McDermott, standout players Christian McCaffrey, George Kittle and Demario Davis, team owner Arthur Blank, and the Houston Texans cheerleaders are among nominees from 31 teams for the NFL's Salute to Service Award.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Buffalo Bills had 12 penalties, including five personal fouls, and three turnovers – and still had chances to win.
Buffalo nonetheless delivered a stinker at Jacksonville on Sunday, a 9-6 shocker that should help refocus a team that had been the odds-on favorite to win the Super Bowl.
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Aside from the win, there is another bright side to the Bills’ opening-half struggles on offense against Miami.
As much as coach Sean McDermott would have preferred Josh Allen to find his groove long before the second series of the third quarter, he learned something more about his quarterback’s ability to fight off adversity.
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Bills coach Sean McDermott isn’t exactly certain what Josh Allen meant about finding his inner Zen to shrug off a shaky start.
Call it what you want, all that mattered was Allen finally finding his groove in time to pull out a 26-11 victory over the Miami Dolphins on Sunday.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Buffalo Bills have seen Josh Allen run for first down after first down since coming into the NFL in 2018.
That's why coach Sean McDermott put the ball in his quarterback's hands yet again on fourth and maybe half a yard rather than kick a tying field goal with 22 seconds left.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Social media and video have made it impossible for the Buffalo Bills to forget their last game against the Tennessee Titans.
Derrick Henry stiff-arming Bills cornerback Josh Norman off his feet through the air literally was everywhere as a highlight, gif or meme.
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — The Buffalo Bills will be without safety Jordan Poyer and left guard Jon Feliciano for their game against the Houston Texans on Sunday.
Both were ruled out Friday, with Poyer sidelined by a left ankle injury and Feliciano out due to a concussion.
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — The first thing Leslie Frazier remembers from working with Ron Rivera and Sean McDermott was being stuck in the basement of Philadelphia’s Veterans Stadium, and the “varmints,” as he called them, lurking around every corner.
After a disjointed 2020 rookie season, Bills coach Sean McDermott is still getting to know A.J. Epenesa away from the field.
“He is quiet. I don’t think I really know the real A.J., maybe,” McDermott said.
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — No matter the down, from first to fourth, the Bills’ retooled pass rush showed it can pack a punch.
Beginning with cornerback Taron Johnson’s sack on the opening snap, Buffalo’s defense set the tone in what became one of the unit’s most dominating performances in five seasons under coach Sean McDermott.
Judging NFL teams after one game has always been foolish. It’s even more absurd in a 17-game season.
The Bills, Titans, Ravens, Browns, Bears and Washington lost their season openers after making the playoffs last season.
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — Dan Marino was 28 when the Buffalo Bills last were in the throes of enjoying such a one-sided series against the Miami Dolphins.
It was a while ago: Marino, the Hall of Fame quarterback for Miami, turned 60 this week.
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — Will Fuller is looking forward to the calm of playing again.
Watching football games and not playing, it turns out, makes the Miami Dolphins wide receiver more than a bit jittery.
For all of the success the Buffalo Bills had on offense last season, their offensive line came up short when it mattered most in the AFC championship game.
The new season picked up right where they left off.
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — The Buffalo Bills have ruled out starting defensive tackle Star Lotulelei from their season opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday.
Lotulelei, who has a calf injury, is the team’s top defender against the run.
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Frustrated as Sean McDermott has grown over the number of unvaccinated players on Buffalo’s roster, the Bills coach acknowledged there’s little more he can do to influence them to get the shot.
BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — Quarterback Josh Allen and Buffalo Bills players are split on whether to get vaccinated at a time coach Sean McDermott raised concerns his team could fall behind in having COVID-19 protocol restrictions loosened for the start of training camp.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Ten years after firing Sean McDermott as his defensive coordinator, Kansas City Chiefs coach Andy Reid will stare across the field inside Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday and see his protégé trying to spoil his hopes of a Super Bowl repeat.
