Bills End Bisontennial Drought With Season Ending Win in Foxboro

Good evening, Patriots fans. Okay, maybe it hasn’t been 200 years but it feels like forever since the Bills last beat the Pats in Massachusetts (2000 to be exact). I honestly cannot seem to understand why so many things went wrong today. It’s impossible to ever imagine seeing this New England team look so dull at home. One thing we can definitely say is that the Buffalo Bills...

My recap: Bills beat the Jets, 38-3

Heading into this game and for about the last 72 hours or so, I really didn’t think much about playoff aspirations or just playing out the string for the season. Instead, I thought a lot about what Buffalo had gone through last week with the snow. Now, I actually didn’t know anyone personally affected by it as my family/friends who still live in Buffalo were spared by the storm...

WATCH: Buffalo Bills Recover First Blocked Punt for a TD in Over a Decade

If there is something that can go wrong for the Jets you can pretty much bet that it will. Midway through the third--with the game still within reach--they tried to punt from deep in their own territory, but Anthony Dixon had something else in mind. Dixon bull rushed the poor soul assigned to block him deep enough for him to block the punt.Manny Lawson shucked his man when he saw...

Sheldon Richardson refuses to allow Anthony Dixon to steal yards

Running backs sometimes like to steal extra yards with some creative ball placement. Much like catchers in baseball do when they try to frame pitches to get a strike call from the umpire. Well, Jets defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson is having none of this nonsense. Bills running back Anthony "Boobie" Dixon was brought down after gaining a few yards on Sunday. When he got the chance...
