After slow start, Bills receivers looking for improvement

Wednesday, September 20th, 2017

Zay Jones gave himself 24 hours to get over the final moments of Sunday's loss to the Carolina Panthers, when a potential game-winning touchdown pass glanced off his fingertips and fell to the ground. It looks as if it will take a whole lot longer to fix the Buffalo Bills' passing attack, with a new-look receiving group that has stalled to open the season. After finishing 30th in the league in passing in 2016 (189.8 yards per game), the Bills are in a similar spot to begin this season.

The Buffalo Bills have concerns about the status of defensive tackle Marcell Dareus heading into Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos, Bills coach Sean McDermott said.

Cam Newton is still looking for his mojo. The Panthers may be 2-0 this season, but the former league MVP is struggling to find his touch on passes after missing significant practice time in training camp and playing only one possession in the preseason while recovering from a partially torn rotator cuff. For the second consecutive week, Newton overthrew a receiver on a would-be touchdown pass in Carolina's 9-3 win over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.

Three & Out: Takeaways from the Panthers’ Win Over the Bills

Sunday, September 17th, 2017

1. I’m not sure how well this offense can operate without Greg Olsen, who broke his foot in the first half and did not return to the game. Last season Olsen became the first tight end in NFL history with three consecutive 1,000 receiving yard seasons and, no matter what the statistics may bear, he’s been Cam Newton’s No. 1 receiving option since Steve Smith was shown the door. A great pass-catcher and average run-blocker, Olsen is replaced by Ed Dickson, who is neither of those things.
