    ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Dane Jackson pays little heed to questions of what challenges he faces in preparing to replace Tre’Davious White in the Buffalo Bills secondary. The second-year cornerback need only point to his left arm, where the initials D, D, D, R are tattooed in honor of four late childhood friends. He does it to show the emotional pain he’s overcome in having gained this opportunity, knowing he could have wound up like them had Jackson chose a different path, and how important it is to not let them down in memory. For Jackson to fail on Monday night, when the Bills (7-4) host the New England Patriots (8-4) with first place in the AFC East on the line, would also personally represent him failing De’Von and Diondre Dozier, Domanek Cabbagestalk and Ricky Giles, who were among his biggest football backers growing up in Pittsburgh’s Greenway projects. The Dozier brothers and Cabbagestalk were shot and killed, and Giles died in a car crash while being chased by police over a four-year period spanning Jackson’s senior year...

    BOSTON (CBS) — Whether Bill Belichick admits it or not, weather plays a HUGE role in football this time of year. I’m sure if you asked him he would say something like, “It is what it is.” And to a certain extent, he’s right. But, I would say that if anything, the weather has been a major factor in the Patriots success in the past few decades. It seems that all my memories of the Patriots playing in the snow, wind, or bitter cold are of them absolutely destroying the opponent. Is that because they are better prepared than other teams? Or is it that they are more used to the winter weather? Either way, it sure seems as though the worse the weather, the better the Patriots play. Can we still assume that to be true? The answer is we just don’t know. The jury is still out. Tom Brady has been replaced by Mac Jones, who, until recently, has spent the majority of his life playing football in Florida or Alabama. Adam Vinatieri and Stephen Gostkowski have been...
    BOSTON (CBS) — This is a big one. After winning six straight and turning their season around, the Patriots will now have the opportunity to prove that they belong atop the AFC East. On the flip side, the Buffalo Bills will be eager to take back their spot as division leaders — and they’ll have 70,000 of their closest friends cheering them on to make that happen. On what will be a freezing cold, very windy and possibly wet Monday night in Buffalo, the Patriots and Bills will duke it out. Here’s how the WBZ and CBS Boston sports team sees this one playing out.

    ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — The Buffalo Bills opened their week on a healthy note with starting defensive tackle Star Lotulelei and starting right guard Spencer Brown cleared from the COVID-19/reserve list. Coach Sean McDermott also announced starting guard Jon Feliciano practiced Tuesday after missing the past four games on injured reserve with a calf injury. Buffalo (7-4) returned to practice following a 31-6 win at New Orleans on Thursday, and in preparation to host the AFC East-leading New England Patriots (8-4) on Monday night. Lotulelei, Buffalo’s top run-stuffing lineman, missed three games and Brown the past two. The potential return of three key starters helps in part to offset the loss of starting cornerback Tre’Davious White, who will miss the remainder of the season after tearing a ligament in his left knee against New Orleans. The Bills have relinquished their division lead to the Patriots after losing three of their past six and have not won consecutive games since a four-game run was snapped in a 34-31 loss at Tennessee on Oct. 18. ___ More AP NFL: https://apnews.com/hub/nfl and...
    BOSTON (CBS) — The Patriots have won six straight games, turning their season around and getting themselves smack dab in the middle of the fight for the top seed in the AFC. It’s been an improbable run, and it has the team and the fans rather excited. But all of those positive vibes can come crashing down if the Patriots take the field Monday night in Orchard Park and get soundly beaten by the Bills. That’s kind of how life works in the NFL. With that in mind, it feels safe to say this is the biggest game of the year for both teams. In the Patriots’ case, a win in Buffalo will create a slight cushion in the AFC East while building tremendous amounts of confidence within the locker room as New England heads into the bye. For the Bills, a win will satisfy the psychotic energy from the 71,000 crazed Bills fans packing Highmark Stadium (when did they start calling it that?) on what’s sure to be a frigid Monday evening. It will also vault the Bills back into...

    ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — With things going from bad to worse, the Buffalo Bills don’t have much time to regroup ahead of their next game. In their eyes, that’s a good thing. “I think it’s very fortunate that we have a Thursday night game that we have to turn our attention to,” quarterback Josh Allen said. Wiping the slate clean might be a good idea for the Bills, who have gone from an expected Super Bowl contender to a team in crisis in recent weeks. Buffalo (6-4) is coming off its worst performance of the season, a 41-15 loss to Indianapolis, and must quickly move on with a game against the New Orleans Saints on Thanksgiving night.

    If the Buffalo Bills’ season wasn’t in crisis after losing to the Jacksonville Jaguars, it certainly is now. Following a discouraging 41-15 loss at home to the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, the Bills ceded control of the AFC East to the surging New England Patriots. The Patriots (7-4), winners of five in a row, are a half-game ahead of the Bills (6-4), who have lost three of their last five games. There’s no rest for the weary, either. The Bills have little time to regroup ahead of one of their most difficult stretches of the schedule. Buffalo soon heads to New Orleans for a prime-time game on Thanksgiving, followed by a Monday night game at home against the rival Patriots and a road game against the defending Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The running back scored five touchdowns in the Indianapolis Colts' 41-15 dismantling of the previously high-flying Buffalo Bills on Sunday.

For Peter Lussier, that meant being there for his father, who Lussier said has “very little time left with us because of cancer.” One Buffalo Bills player stepped up and was there for the Lussier family, cheering them up with a special at-home visit with Pete’s dad: Ed Oliver. Id like to give a HUGE THANKYOU to Ed Oliver of my Buffalo Bills!! This dude took the time to visit my dad (whos...
    Getty Stefon Diggs and Josh Allen celebrate a touchdown against the New York Jets. After what would have been a spectacular touchdown toss and catch was ruled out of bounds, Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stefon Diggs was confident that he and Josh Allen could re-create the magic. Diggs had a breakout game in Buffalo’s 45-17 win over the New York Jets on November 14, catching 8 passes for a season-best 162 yards. But the most important snag of all may have been the one immediately following his near-touchdown, where his confidence in Allen would pay off. The latest Bills news straight to your inbox!

    Getty Head coach Sean McDermott of the Buffalo Bills celebrates a successful field goal in the first quarter against the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium on November 14, 2021 in East Rutherford, New Jersey. The Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott is not afraid to jump onto the field with players during practice, however, he seems to be extra creative when it comes to preparing the team to face the Indianapolis Colts in Week 11. On Wednesday, November 17, a video was posted on Twitter that shows McDermott chasing his players at practice with a Gladiator stick. 13 WHAM reporter Dan Fetes tweeted that McDermott “has either had enough of the #Bills fumbling the football or is just staying ready for a possible reboot of American Gladiators.” ALL the latest Bills news straight to your inbox!

    ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — If Josh Allen refuses to ride the emotional roller coaster following a win or loss, then perhaps it’s also time to hold off judgment on how good — or mediocre — these Buffalo Bills might be this year. Throttling the Jets 45-17, as Buffalo did on Sunday, is one thing, no matter what the Bengals might suggest after losing to New York two weeks earlier. The true test for the win-one, lose-one Bills, as they’ve done the past four games, comes over the next five weeks. Having padded its 6-3 record against mostly NFL pushovers, Buffalo enters the meat of its schedule in facing five consecutive opponents currently at .500 or better, starting with Indianapolis (5-5) hitting town on Sunday. The stretch is rounded out by New Orleans (5-4), Tampa Bay (6-3) and includes two games against New England (6-4), which will go far in determining whether the Bills will repeat as AFC East champions for the first time since a four-year run spanning 1988-91. What’s evident through nine games is Buffalo’s defense continues...
    Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stefon Diggs had just one football for five kids, but the NFL star gave the group of young fans a really cool and long-lasting memory. Prior to Sunday’s game between Buffalo and the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ, Diggs went through his on-field pregame routine and walked over to a group of traveling Bills fans. With five kids in Bills gear, Diggs was tasked with the difficult decision of who should get his pregame football. Diggs could only think of one perfect way to resolve the dispute, by playing an epic and unforgettable game of rock, paper, scissors with the young fans. With Diggs picking scissors in the game’s final round, he tossed the ball to the kid who wisely chose rock. This is pretty funny.

The Buffalo Bills put on a dominating performance against the New York Jets on Sunday, a game in which numerous members of both the offense and defense made significant plays leading to their 45-17 victory. Following a disappointing loss in Jacksonville last week, wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie was incredibly amped before kickoff at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford. “Bills warming up and Isaiah McKenzie rounded up the receivers and was screaming in the faces of Stefon Diggs, Emmanuel Sanders, Cole Beasley & Gabriel Davis.

Here we are on Sunday afternoon following another New York Jets blowout loss under head coach Robert Saleh in Week 10. Most expected this to be an up and down season for this young and inexperienced roster but few thought the team would get embarrassed under Coach Saleh, whose entire mantra preaches 100% effort until that final whistle sounds. Despite this, we’ve now seen at least four no-contest defeats, maybe five if you count the first matchup against the New England Patriots. For a team that’s played nine games, that’s just about half of the 2021 season. ALL the latest Jets news straight to your inbox! Join the Heavy on Jets newsletter here! Join Heavy on Jets!

    EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills heard it all after an embarrassing loss last week to Jacksonville. Maybe they’re not as good as everyone thought. Maybe they’re overrated. Maybe they’re pretenders. READ MORE: Panarin, Kreider Score 2 Each, Rangers Beat Blue JacketsAnd then they reminded everyone of why that was probably just an ugly bump in the road with a dominant and thorough thrashing of the New York Jets in a 45-17 victory Sunday. “That’s one thing we’re not going to do: ride the roller coaster of we’re the worst team to ever play, and now we’re the best team to ever play,” Allen said. “We’re going to stay consistent and steady.” That’s exactly what they were against the Jets. Allen threw two touchdown passes, Buffalo ran for four scores and the Bills’ top-ranked defense intercepted Mike White four times. It was an impressive showing for the Bills (6-3), who rebounded nicely from that 9-6 dud at Jacksonville. “Having that bad taste in our mouth from last week, not performing to our standard, it kind...

    EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Josh Allen threw two touchdown passes, Buffalo ran for four scores and the Bills’ top-ranked ranked defense intercepted Mike White four times and smothered the New York Jets in a 45-17 victory Sunday. It was an impressive showing for the Bills (6-3), who rebounded from an embarrassing 9-6 loss at Jacksonville last week by thoroughly dominating the lowly Jets (2-7). Allen was 21 of 28 for 366 yards with TD passes to Matt Breida and Stefon Diggs with an interception. Breida added a scoring run, as did Devin Singletary, Zack Moss and wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie as Buffalo’s offense looked alive and well. Taron Johnson, Tre’Davious White, Levi Wallace and Jordan Poyer each intercepted White, who made his third straight start for the injured Zach Wilson — and it might have been his last. Wilson is getting closer to a return from a sprained knee ligament and there was some speculation the Jets could continue with White even when the rookie is healthy. His performance against the Bills might have ended all that. White was...

    The Latest from Week 10 of the NFL (all times EST): — 11 a.m. The Buffalo Bills placed defensive tackle Star Lotulelei on the reserve/COVID-19 list a few hours before kickoff of the team’s game against the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium. Defensive tackle Brandin Bryant was elevated from the practice squad to take Lotulelei’s place for the game. Lotulelei has two sacks and 14 tackles in seven games, all starts, this season for the Bills. The 31-year-old Lotulelei opted out last season because of concerns about the pandemic. He was placed in COVID-19 protocols during training camp after he was deemed to be a close contact, and was activated on Aug. 27. Bryant, who joined Buffalo’s practice squad last year, hasn’t played in a regular-season NFL game since 2019 with Cleveland. He was signed by Seattle as an undrafted free agent out of Florida Atlantic in 2016, and has also spent time with the Jets and Miami Dolphins as well as Winnipeg and Montreal of the Canadian Football League. — Dennis Waszak Jr. reporting from East Rutherford,...
    Getty Zack Moss celebrates after scoring a touchdown in a preseason game against the Green Bay Packers. Buffalo Bills running back Zack Moss is through concussion protocol and eligible to play in Sunday’s game against the New York Jets. Whether he actually takes the field against the AFC East rival could be another story, an insider speculates. Moss was injured in the 9-6 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars on November 7, leaving the game in the second half and being placed into the league-mandated concussion protocol.

    Getty New York Jets quarterback Mike White hands the ball off to wide receiver Elijah Moore on a reverse. Heading into a Week 10 matchup with the Buffalo Bills, there are actually some reasons for New York Jets’ optimism against the 5-3 division leader. For starters, Gang Green has been a much better football team at MetLife Stadium under head coach Robert Saleh, with a 2-1 home record in 2021 including upset wins over the Tennessee Titans and Cincinnati Bengals — arguably the best two teams the Jets has played this year. The Bills are also in the midst of a slump. Buffalo has lost two out of their past three games and the one win over the Miami Dolphins was not all that convincing. Last week, they were beaten 9-6 by the lowly Jacksonville Jaguars. And then there’s Mike White, the confident backup quarterback that has stolen the hearts of many fans in Zach Wilson’s absence. Against a number one ranked Buffalo defense, Week 10 should provide an adequate test for the “white-hot” signal-caller. ALL the latest...

On Sunday once again the New York Jets will be a prohibitive underdog against the Buffalo Bills. The AFC East-leading Bills are a 12.5 point favorite according to the latest Vegas odds and will be looking for a major bounceback after an embarrassing 9-6 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. While speaking of embarrassment, the Jets were hosed on Thursday Night Football and allowed over 260 yards rushing on the ground to the Indianapolis Colts. That sets us up for a very intriguing matchup with two teams that won’t be operating at full strength. ALL the latest Jets news straight to your inbox! Join the Heavy on Jets newsletter here!
