Wow.

Buffalo Bills tight end Tommy Sweeney initially missed the beginning portion of the season on the Physically Unable to Perform list with a foot injury from the offseason. Now, he’s going to miss the rest of the season due to a complication from COVID-19.

Bills head coach Sean McDermott told reporters on Monday that Sweeney will be out the rest of the season after meeting with a cardiologist last week. The doctor diagnosed Sweeney...

Ten Buffalo Bills who have shaped 2020

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

The Bills are in great position after ten games thanks in large part to these ten players

The Buffalo Bills are in first place in the AFC East after ten games, just ahead of the Miami Dolphins. Buffalo’s three losses have come against the Tennessee Titans in an odd week, the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs just six days later on another modified-schedule week, and on a Hail Mary that propelled the Arizona Cardinals to victory.

In short, the...

Six Bills who will shape the rest of 2020

A six-pack of players whose best is hopefully yet to come this season

With six games remaining in the 2020 NFL season, the Buffalo Bills find themselves in solid position. At 7-3, they are in first place in the AFC East and third in the AFC overall. However, they can’t be comfortable, as the Miami Dolphins (6-3) are breathing right down their necks for the division, and five other AFC teams currently have a 6-3 record as well.

In order for the Bills to take the...

The case to re-sign Buffalo Bills LB Matt Milano despite injury risks

Is it better to retain Milano or let him walk in free agency?

I’m here to dispel all concern with Buffalo Bills linebacker Matt Milano and establish that he is worth re-signing despite some of the injury concerns that have plagued him this season. Rumblings on social media have suggested that Milano is injury-prone and a risk to keep around at a higher number. I’m also led to believe that some think that he’s not worth a contract extension, and...

Moving up in AFC playoff picture is going to be tough for Buffalo Bills

Photo by Justin K. Aller/Getty Images

The Bills likely can’t climb higher than the third seed.

Buffalo Bills fans are looking at the AFC playoff race from every possible angle. After a week of hand-wringing over a surging Miami Dolphins team, Bills fans looked around the conference on Sunday and saw mostly negative outcomes outside of that Dolphins team losing.

The Tennessee Titans, holder or a head-to-head tiebreaker over Buffalo, won in overtime as did their AFC South colleagues, the...

The Bills sat back and watched the action in Week 11.

The Buffalo Bills were off Week 11 enjoying their bye, likely taking in all of the action within the rest of the division. Coming into this week, the Miami Dolphins had a chance to even their record with Buffalo in the standings by defeating the Denver Broncos. The New York Jets were still looking for their first win of the season, while the New England Patriots were looking to keep momentum going for...

Jets officially eliminated from postseason play

At 0-10, they have no path.

On Sunday, the New York Jets became the first team in the NFL to be officially eliminated from postseason play. Their loss to the Los Angeles Chargers dropped them to 0-10 on the year.

With ten losses, the best they can hope for is a 6-10 record. With six teams in the AFC already at seven wins, that leaves just the seventh spot available. The Miami Dolphins and Las Vegas Raiders are both 6-4 and play later this year, meaning at...

AFC Playoff Picture: What will it take Buffalo Bills to clinch the AFC East?

The numbers are aligning.

The Buffalo Bills were on a bye this week and the entire AFC East lost. Pretty nice. Naturally it got Bills fans thinking about how their team can eventually clinch the first division win since the mid-1990s.

At 7-3, the Bills hold a one-game lead over the 6-4 Miami Dolphins. At 4-6, the New England Patriots are three games back with six to play. The New York Jets have been officially eliminated at 0-10.

So what’s it going to...

With the Buffalo Bills on the bye, we were watching all the other games this weekend. The biggest result happened in Denver, where the Broncos were able to stop the Miami Dolphins’ run at five straight victories.

Elsewhere in the AFC playoff race, the Baltimore Ravens lost to the Tennessee Titans in overtime while the Cleveland Browns eked out a win over the Philadelphia Eagles and the Houston Texans ended the New England...

Bills fans once again showed their generosity

Buffalo Bills fans once again have made the kind of difference that makes many in Bills Mafia proud—they’ve come together to donate to honor Josh Allen’s late grandmother, Patricia Allen. Now those donations are cementing her legacy with Oishei Childeren’s Hospital.

Patricia Allen passed away on Saturday September 7, the day before the Bills would play (and eventually beat) the Seattle Seahawks in...

The Buffalo Bills are off this week, finally reaching their bye week in the eleventh slate of games in the 2020 season. The timing works out well, as there are quite a few Bills who could use some rest, including linebackers Matt Milano and Tremaine Edmunds.

Buffalo Bills offense back on track, scoring in ten straight quarters and counting

Photo by Christian Petersen/Getty Images

The Buffalo Bills had a blistering start to their season, with MVP candidate Josh Allen leading the offense to more than 30 points per game on average and a 4-0 start. After a lull for the middle portion of the season, the offense has kicked it back in gear. They’ve scored in each of the last ten quarters and could extend that streak next week against the Los Angeles Chargers.

In those ten quarters, Buffalo has 91 points, a pace that would average...

Buffalo Bills’ fan confidence stays steady after Hail Murray loss to Arizona Cardinals

Buffalo Bills fans didn’t overreact to their team’s loss to the Arizona Cardinals this week. A late offensive explosion put the Bills ahead with 34 seconds left only to see Arizona mount a drive and win on a last-second Hail Mary. Bills fans still think things are going okay on the whole. After a week back to 95% from a previous high of 100% earlier in the season, confident fans fell to 92% after the loss.

Even with 92% of Bills fans in SB Nation...

Tyler Bass is first kicker in NFL history with three 50-plus field goals in one quarter

He’s coming around

At the end of the Buffalo Bills’ offseason, the team released kicker Stephen Hasuchka and fully committed to rookie sixth-round draft pick Tyler Bass. We knew it would be a little rocky, but last Sunday, Bass recorded three 50-yard field goals in the second quarter, becoming the first player in NFL history to accomplish the feat.

In August, we did a statistical analysis of rookie kickers. We looked back on a bunch of them to show how...

Former Bills Eric Wood and Richie Incognito share a special relationship on and off the field

Wood was instrumental in bringing Incognito, a controversial player, to the Bills.

In 2014, Richie Incognito, a former Pro Bowl guard, was out of football following a very public hazing incident with Jonathan Martin, a teammate of his on the Miami Dolphins. Buffalo Bills center Eric Wood was in his sixth NFL season and starting a new multi-year contract with the club. They were at seemingly opposite ends of the career ladder when then-general manager Doug Whaley asked Wood for his opinion...

Getting over Hail Murray

Maybe having the bye week following a heartbreaking loss is not the best for Bills fans, but I do think it is best for the coaches and players. The extra week of rest obviously helps the team get healthier, but also gives everyone a bit of extra...
