Bills knew they'd make big strides on special teams

BY NICK ST. DENISThe Buffalo Bills mostly stunk on special teams in 2013. 2014 was much better. As the team's website points out, the Bills went from a Football Outsiders special teams ranking of 30th to 4th from year-to-year. (Check out the F.O. rankings and numerical values here). “We kind of knew we were going to be able to do that,” Bills defender Corey Graham told Buffalobills...

Buffalo Bills avoid NFL’s biggest turkeys, bitter rivals do not

The NFL is a marketing machine, a network of television, online, print and other media platforms that push the league’s message at every turn. It’s a mechanism that churns out stars and makes average Joes household names. Most of the time, that’s a good thing; the league is promoting the game by highlighting the people who make it click. But it’s not always appropriate. Sometimes...

Richard Sherman and Patrick Peterson have gotten into several Twitter feuds on the subject and everyone from Brandon Flowers to DeAngelo Hall has told the world they’re number one. But who is it really? What if I told you that as of this moment it’s not Sherman or Peterson? What if I told you that neither...

Beyond the stats with @nickelcitybills: Analyzing Stephon Gilmore

Stephon Gilmore has been a polarizing player dating back to last season. After missing Week 1 with a groin injury, the first round cornerback has been part of a three-man rotation with Corey Graham and Leodis McKelvin. Now that he’s returned to action, fears and rumblings that he may not be the shutdown corner we hoped he would become have arisen. Evaluating cornerbacks is difficult...

4 reasons the Miami Dolphins will beat the Buffalo Bills Week 2

The Miami Dolphins are 1-0 following a 33-20 beatdown of the New England Patriots, and are headed into Buffalo to take on the 1-0 Bills.

Second Take with @BradleyGelber – Almost, But Ultimately Not The Same Buffalo Bills

My heart was pounding as we crept later & later into the 4th quarter. Once again the Bills had found a way to blow a 10-point half-time lead (a lead they were never suppose to have mind you.) The Bears had all of the momentum and it seemed like we were witnessing the same old Buffalo Bills. In my always-sarcastic state I tweeted the following… Honestly, if you’re a Buffalo...
