Buffalo Bills’ 2012 fourth-round pick Ron Brooks is entering his second year with the team and is expected to be the nickel, or No. 3 cornerback. With defensive coordinator Mike Pettine stating that the team would be operating primarily out of nickel and dime packages, the No. 3 cornerback will be an important asset to the Bills’ 2013 defense.
While players like Brooks and third...
Kevin Kolb will likely be the Bills Week 1 starter as EJ Manuel reportedly needs knee surgery. See how long Manuel will miss.
Even though the Bills gave Kevin Kolb the start, it was E.J. Manuel who continued to flourish on Friday night.
Kolb had a dreadful night after missing his receivers numerous times. It’s obvious that he’s not going to win the starting job.
Manuel on the other hand finished the night 10-12 for 92 yards and 1 touchdown.
It was truly impressive how much Manuel was in control of...
Tonight’s Buffalo Bills Minnesota Vikings preseason game offered some important insights into the team, but it was still a preseason game. So, the Buddy Nixon’s crew enthusiasm was a little more muted than usual. Not so for this lively guy sitting in front of us, who was having as good a time as anyone ever. Check it:
Now that’s just awesome. The wave’s a little tired, but...
EJ Manuel has had the look of a guy that is ready to start the season for the Bills and utilize his skill set to make the Bills offense more dynamic. Unfortunately, he will need a minor surgery (perhaps a scope) that will keep him out the rest of he preseason. So we will see more Kevin Kolb. Yippee.

The Buffalo Bills entered training camp with E.J. Manuel and Kevin Kolb competing for the starting quarterback job. Kolb, who was signed by the team in the offseason, seemed like the leader to start Week 1 because of his experience. But through two preseason games, it’s looking more and more like Manuel will open the […]
While E.J Manuel hasnt officially been named the starting QB, the title seems to be somewhat of a formality. E.J Manuel finished the night 10-12 for 92 yds and the TD in just 3 series.

Kevin Kolb did not make a bold statement in the battle for starting quarterback and the Buffalo Bills’ defense looked good in Friday night’s exhibition against the Minnesota Vikings.
Kolb managed to engineer just four first downs in five series against the Vikings’ defensive starters. On the last two drives of the first half against Minnesota’s second-stringers Kolb drove...
With no Adrian Peterson to worry about, Jerry Hughes and the Buffalo Bills' defense thoroughly stymied Christian Ponder and the Minnesota Vikings in 20-16 preseason victory Friday night.
Hughes had two sacks and forced a fumble, and backup linebacker Jamie Blatnick recovered a fumble in the end zone for a touchdown. Hughes was starting in place of defensive end Mario Williams...
With every passing week in the preseason, we start to get more of a feel about which players may make a splash and how a team may perform as a whole for the upcoming year.
