Buffalo Bills not ready to make QB change yet

Buffalo Bills not ready to make QB change yet

Sports
The Buffalo Bills' offense is a bigger mess than anyone could have imagined, and it was on display Sunday in all its ugliness during a 47-3 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. On a horribly rainy day, the Bills found a way to be even more miserable than the conditions. They managed just 10 first downs and 153 total yards, were 2 of 15 on third down, and averaged just 2.5 yards per play. "Overall, I thought we could have been better in a number of positions," coach Sean McDermott said. "I've got to look at the tape, to be honest with you, to get a better feel and making sure we were in the right spots before I give you a better read-out." The tape won't show anything different from what everyone saw: the worst offensive performance in the NFL in Week 1. And yet that has not moved McDermott ...

Buffalo Bills rookie quarterback Josh Allen will receive his first opportunity to work with the projected starting unit this week, Bills head coach Sean McDermott said on Tuesday. Allen, who was selected by the Bills with the seventh overall pick of the 2018 NFL Draft, will spend most of his time with the third-team group. McDermott noted that the 6-foot-5, 237-pound Allen will get occasional snaps with the starters, however. "He's worked hard ... this has been part of the plan from the start. But give Josh credit, he's earned it," McDermott said, per Sal Capaccio of WGR 550. Quarterbacks Nathan Peterman and A.J. McCarron have taken the starting reps thus far this offseason for the Bills. McCarron, signed as a free agent in March after being a backup with the Cincinnati Bengals, is t...
Buffalo Bills release C Eric Wood with injury settlement

Buffalo Bills release C Eric Wood with injury settlement

Sports
The Buffalo Bills are releasing veteran center Eric Wood. The team has reached an injury settlement with Wood, multiple media outlets reported Thursday. The 32-year-old Wood announced in January that he was retiring due to a neck injury that was revealed in a season-ending physical. Wood did not formally retire in January because the team was trying to work through salary-cap issues. According to the Buffalo News, if the Bills placed Wood on the reserve/retired list before June 1, his cap number would jump from its current $ 8.625 million to $ 10.39 million. A first-round pick of Buffalo (No. 28 overall) in the 2009 NFL Draft, Wood spent his entire nine-year career with the franchise, earning Pro Bowl honors in 2015. Wood started all 16 regular-season games in 2017 as well as an AFC...

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Buffalo Bills rookie quarterback Nathan Peterman was escorted to the locker room and evaluated for a concussion during the third quarter of Sunday's snow-ravaged game against the Indianapolis Colts. Also, Buffalo wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin injured his right knee during the third quarter. He returned in the fourth quarter, however. Peterman was injured after he dove at the end of a 2-yard run and was tackled by Colts defenders Antonio Morrison and Johnathan Hankins. There was no penalty on the play and Peterman appeared to hit his head on the ground. Peterman was able to walk to the sideline with assistance from trainers. The Bills were already without starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor, who missed the game with a bruised knee sustained in last week's 23-3 loss to th...

Thursday Night Football: New York Jets run past Buffalo Bills, 34-21

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- You could almost hear Al Pacino reciting the line he made famous in "The Godfather: Part III" if he were a Jets fan: "Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in." Even the Jets couldn't blow this one. Losers of three straight in which they gave up 14-point leads in the first two and fourth-quarter advantages in the second two, the Jets put together a complete performance, dominating the Buffalo Bills 34-21 on Thursday night at MetLife Stadium. New York (4-5) is still in last place in the AFC East, so talk of a playoff push would be premature. However, the Jets showed surprising signs of improvement in two areas where they previously struggled -- running the ball and rushing the passer. Running back Matt Forte complained after Sunday's loss to the Atlanta F...
