The Penalty Flag:
The Buffalo Bills fell short of the New England Patriots in Week 1 thanks to sloppy penalties, a stuttering offense, and yet another late game-winning drive by Tom Brady. However, it wasn’t the loss so much as it was the way the Bills lost that surprised many. Instead of folding in the face of one of the top quarterbacks in the game, the Buffalo Bills kept the score close throughout, leading the game for much of the second half, before folding under a late field goal...

If you’ve been reading my Chalk Talks then you’d notice one thing… I’m rather critical of wide receiver T.J. Graham. And that didn’t change after Sunday’s disappearing act.
After a dismal rookie season for Graham, which was highlighted by drops and poor route running, especially in the Week 8 match-up at New England, there was a lot of pressure on the NC State alum coming...
E.J. Manuel wasn’t perfect, but it was a start of something special for the Buffalo Bills for years to come. At least that’s the positive most of us are forced to spin the Bills loss to the Patriots to start the new season.
For most Bills fans, we’ve had enough moral victories. The Patriots were lucky to leave western New York with a win and we know it.
It wasn’t the normal...
Bills head coach Doug Marrone told reporters on Monday that wide receiver Marquise Goodwin will be out for some time with a fractured hand.

C.J. Spiller refuses to let a season-opening dud get in the way of his pursuit to establish himself as one of the NFL's elite.
So long as he keeps his hands on the ball and frustrations in check, the Buffalo Bills running back sees no reason to worry.
The first step Wednesday was putting behind a forgettable performance in a 23-21 loss to New England on Sunday. He lost a fumble...
The Buffalo Bills have promoted cornerback Johnny Adams from the practice squad to the active roster.
Adams, a rookie free agent out of Michigan State, joined the Bills' practice squad on Sept. 2. He was released by the Houston Texans in late July and spent training camp with the Indianapolis Colts.
Buffalo made the move after second-year cornerback Ron Brooks had foot surgery...
Bills CEO Russ Brandon told reporters on Wednesday that S Jairus Byrd has not requested a trade.
“There was no trade requested. That isn’t even a topic of conversation in this building,” said Brandon, via WGR 550.
Ian Rapoport adds that Byrd is in fact “open to a trade,” but has yet to request one.
We’ve already mentioned a number of reason why a trade is unlikely...
Before the Bills regular season began last week, the Buffalo News had reported that franchise safety Jairus Byrd and his agent, Eugene Parker, had been orchestrating a trade out of Buffalo.
On Wednesday morning, Bills President & CEO Russ Brandon took to the airwaves to dispute the reports that Byrd requested a trade out of Buffalo.
“There was no trade request,” Brandon said...
The Bills are one of several teams that blew leads against superior opponents this week and this one has to hurt the most, not just because it was the Patriots, but because they were the only team this week to win the turnover battle and lose the game. Winning the turnover battle is not something you can count on, especially for a team like the Bills, so you have to capitalize when...
Rookie quarterback EJ Manuel and the new-look Buffalo Bills opened the season with a familiar lament.
No matter how many times the Bills retool their roster, they almost always find a way to lose to Tom Brady and the New England Patriots.
''Obviously, Tom Brady is a great quarterback and is going to go into the Hall of Fame,'' Manuel said. ''But at the end...
Buffalo Bills fans are pretty original how they razz the opposition. You had the fans dressed in prison jumpsuits that said “Hernandez 81″ on the back. Then you have this sign that said “Tom Brady Sits When He Pees”.
Karma is a b*tch…..
All Tom Brady did was get off the toilet bowl and beat the Bills yet again.

The New England Patriots barely squeaked out a victory over the Buffalo Bills in Week 1 of the 2013 NFL Season. One of the biggest highlights of the game was these Bills fans who showed up in orange jailhouse jumpsuits with “Hernandez 81″ spray painted on the back.
Game. Set. Match. Bills.
The fans in the jumpsuits were 10 Canadian men who claimed to be correction and police...
New England came from behind to defeat the Buffalo Bills 23-21. Here are 5 reasons why it was possible.
So close, yet so far... The Buffalo Bills were minutes away from a week 1 victory and then Brady and the Pats became Brady and the Pats and the Bills became the Bills. For what it’s worth, neither team played good football. Turnovers and penalties were the theme of the day for the Bills, who showed why being good and being young in the NFL are not as harmonious of a duo as last...
EJ Manuel earned a lot of praise after his NFL debut.
Cam Newton can certainly relate given his marvelous rookie year, though his season debut didn't go so well.
Both two-dimensional signal-callers look to help their teams bounce back from tantalizingly close losses to playoff teams from last season as the Buffalo Bills host the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.
The only quarterback...
