Tuesday, January 16th, 2018

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- The Buffalo Bills hired Brian Daboll to be their offensive coordinator, the team announced Sunday. Daboll spent last season at Alabama, where he led the Crimson Tide's offense to a national championship. "Brian did a tremendous job for us this past season at Alabama, and I know he will do a great job for the Buffalo Bills. He is an outstanding coach and coordinator who put us in position to be successful each week. We appreciate all that he did in terms of his time and his dedication in contributing to the success we had this season," Alabama coach Nick Saban said in a statement.

Sunday, January 14th, 2018

It's fair to say that no one outside the lovely city of Jacksonville, Fla., thought that the Jaguars had any shot against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Sunday's AFC Divisional Playoff game at Heinz Field. It was already a foregone conclusion that the Steelers and New England Patriots would meet next week in the AFC Championship. As they say, football games are not won on paper, and the upstart Jaguars proved that in a stunning 45-42 victory that sent Terrible Towel wavers home in tears.

Sunday, January 14th, 2018

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Zay Jones apparently played with a torn labrum during his rookie season and will undergo surgery to repair the injury this week. The Bills traded up to select Jones in the second round (No. 37 overall) of the 2017 draft, and he moved to the top of the depth chart when the team traded Sammy Watkins to the Los Angeles Rams in August. Jones finished a disappointing debut season with 27 catches for 316 yards and two touchdowns in 15 games as he was slowed by a shoulder injury.

Bills playoff drought over; rebuilding plan to continue

Monday, January 8th, 2018

Brief and disappointing as the Buffalo Bills' first playoff appearance in 18 years was, veteran center Eric Wood can already find a bright side. ''I'm just so glad I won't have to answer: 'How are we going to end the drought this year?''' Wood said Monday, a day after a 10-3 loss in an AFC wild-card playoff at Jacksonville. The drought is over after the Bills became the last team in North America's four major professional sports to make the playoffs in the 21st Century.

Ngakoue stands by tweet, says Incognito ‘knows what he said’

Monday, January 8th, 2018

Yannick Ngakoue says whatever Buffalo Bills guard Richie Incognito was trying to accomplish didn't work. The Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end stood by his tweet accusing Incognito of using "weak racist slurs" during their playoff game, but the second-year pro declined Monday to provide more details about what was said. ''I've been playing this game for what, 12, 13 years now,'' Ngakoue said.

Bills coaches, Triplette’s crew weren’t primed for playoffs

Monday, January 8th, 2018

The Buffalo Bills' long-awaited playoff appearance might not have been so short-lived had their coaching staff played the percentages and not a hunch in their 10-3 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. On first-and-goal from the Jaguars 1, coach Sean McDermott and offensive coordinator Rick Dennison elected to call a run-pass option instead of asking quarterback Tyrod Taylor to either run it in himself or hand it off to running back LeSean McCoy against one of the most vulnerable run defenses in the playoffs. ''I want a running play,'' McCoy said.
