    NBC Joshua Vacanti performing "If I Ain't Got You" on The Voice. It’s challenge week on “The Voice,” which means the top 10 contestants were tasked with singing a song outside of their comfort zone. For 28-year-old Joshua Vacanti, that meant an R&B ballad. Vacanti’s coach John Legend assigned him “If I Ain’t Got You” by Alicia Keys, which Vacanti said “terrified” him at first (he’s stuck to pop and musical theatre songs thus far in the competition). But Vacanti found a personal connection to the song and delivered a performance that impressed the coaches. The night of the live show, November 29, happened to be Vacanti’s second wedding anniversary with his wife, Sam Olewnik. “Happy Anniversary bubs???? I got your back, you got mine,” Vacanti captioned an Instagram photo of the pair on their wedding day. According to Vacanti’s bio on the NBC website, he regularly gigs with his wife and sings in a worship band with her.

    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...
    This week, Between the Hashmarks looks at how the Buffalo Bills have gone from September Super Bowl hopefuls to a crossroads, the underrated players insiders are watching, plus the Jason Garrett era ending in New York, and more. September was a storybook for the Buffalo Bills, who looked like the most complete team in the league less than two months ago but have since devolved into the NFL’s biggest Jekyll and Hyde tale. Former MVP frontrunner, Bills quarterback Josh Allen has thrown five interceptions over the past three weeks, seemingly regressing to his 2019 form after tossing only three picks in the Bills’ five prior games. Since walking out of Arrowhead 4-1 following a 38-20 victory over the Chiefs that seemingly signaled a changing of the guard in the AFC, as the Bills conquered their 10,000-pound silverback ape after falling in the same venue in January’s AFC Championship Game, the wheels came off Buffalo’s wagons. “The Titans’ defense gave a blueprint now two years in a row to stopping Josh Allen,” an AFC South scout tells FanSided, on the condition...
    ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Jonathan Taylor set a franchise record by scoring five times, and took over the NFL lead in both yards rushing and touchdowns, in the Indianapolis Colts’ 41-15 rout of the unraveling Buffalo Bills on Sunday. Taylor scored three times in the first half, including a 23-yard catch, en route to becoming the NFL’s first player with five TDs in in one game since New Orleans’ Alvin Kamara had six TDs rushing in a 52-33 win over Minnesota last Christmas Day. The Bills (6-4) ceded their lead atop the AFC East, falling a half-game behind — guess who? — New England, which Buffalo will play twice over the next five weeks. Taylor finished with a season-high 185 yards rushing and four touchdowns and has 1,122 yards this season after beginning the day tied for the league lead with the injured Derrick Henry of Tennessee. Taylor has 14 touchdowns this season, moving ahead of Arizona’s James Conner, who began the day with 12. Taylor topped 100 yards from scrimmage and scored a touchdown for the eighth consecutive...
    The Indianapolis Colts absolutely dominated the Buffalo Bills on Sunday and Jonathan Taylor had a day to remember.  What in the world happened to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday? The AFC East powerhouse was a favorite to take down the Indianapolis Colts at Bills Stadium in Week 11, but the Colts were downright electric in this one. Indy ended up cruising to a 41-15 victory. Running back Jonathan Taylor put on a show in this one, as he rushed for four touchdowns and added a receiving score as well. While Buffalo is known for its stout defense, the unit didn’t show up on Sunday. Should fans be concerned about the team moving forward?Buffalo looked downright disappointing in the Week 11 loss vs. the ColtsThe Bills are still considered slight favorites to win the AFC and go on to play in the Super Bowl this February. There’s no denying that the team is loaded with talent. With that said, if the Colts can head to Buffalo and make the Bills look this poorly, then it tells us that someone else can...
    BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — The Sabres had just completed a pregame meeting and veteran forward Kyle Okposo was struck by what he noticed once the coaches left the room. Rather than head their separate ways, most players stuck around to chat. Without referencing how things went in the past, Okposo was making a clear point about the current — post-Jack Eichel — makeup of the Sabres and the bonds being formed among a group of developing youngsters and journeymen. “We all truly enjoy being around each other. And that’s a really special thing when you’re in the NHL, because it doesn’t happen everywhere,” Okposo said. The moment made him reflect to his youth hockey days of teammates always hanging out together and playing mini-sticks in arena hallways. “This is the grown-up version of that,” he said. “I think we have a team in there and we have guys in there who truly care about each other. And our whole thing is happening the way it’s supposed to. And I’m really excited about our future.” The Eichel era in Buffalo...
    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,...
    Howard Schultz Workers at three Starbucks stores in the Buffalo area are seeking to unionize, and Starbucks management is going all out to try to block it. If these workers are successful, it would be a first at a corporate-owned Starbucks store, setting a precedent that raises the stakes for an anti-union company. After all, if workers in Buffalo do it, workers in other places might start getting ideas. Ballots were supposed to go out to workers on Wednesday, but on Monday, Starbucks asked the National Labor Relations Board to delay the election and, instead of following the NLRB regional office’s decision to hold three separate elections at the three stores where workers have sought union elections, hold a single union election for all Starbucks stores in the Buffalo area. Starbucks couldn’t make it more clear that it thinks it will lose a fair election in the three stores where workers have called for union representation elections, so it wants to change the rules. That move comes as part of a broader barrage of anti-union activity from Starbucks management. On Saturday,...
    New York (CNN Business)Former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz told a story about the Holocaust to promote the company's benefits to a group of employees in a meeting this past weekend. Schultz, who is Jewish, said a rabbi in Israel told him about the experiences of prisoners at concentration camps in Poland: They were only given a few blankets and had to share. "Not everyone, but most people shared their blanket with five other people," said Schultz. "So much of that story is threaded into what we've tried to do at Starbucks -- is share our blanket."Schultz shared the story with employees in the Buffalo area Saturday. He has told the story before, including during a 2016 shareholders meeting. His comments on Saturday were posted on a video on Starbucks' YouTube page.Reactions to his analogy have been wide-ranging. Holocaust prisoners' selflessness while facing death isn't a direct parallel to a Fortune 500 company providing benefits to its employees.Read More"Felt like it wasn't a very appropriate analogy," a Starbucks employee in attendance told the New York Times. The Forward, a Jewish publication,...
    The odds on favorite to win the AFC championship, the Buffalo Bills are struggling right now The Buffalo Bills overtook the Kansas City Chiefs as the odds favorite to win the AFC Championship two weeks ago. Now, they will likely see the defending AFC champions catching up. In Week 9, the Buffalo Bills lost to the 1-6 Jacksonville Jaguars 9-6. The Bills offense, considered one of the best in the league, was dominated by the 25th defense in the league. Josh Allen was sacked four times and threw up two interceptions. Meanwhile, the Bills defense, considered the best defense in the league this season, allowed a Jacksonville Jaguars offense that lost Trevor Lawrence early in the game to score enough points to win. This embarrassing loss comes just a week after the Bills played a close game against a bad Miami Dolphins team. The Bills looked indestructible through six weeks but now look to falling apart.The Buffalo Bills have a tough stretch ahead of themThe Bills have already had their bye week, so there is no slowing down the rest...
    Around 2,000 health care workers at South Buffalo Mercy Hospital have been on strike since Oct. 1. Now, they have a tentative agreement and picket lines are suspended while the workers vote whether to ratify the contract. The continuing John Deere strike is a reminder that workers sometimes vote down agreements that their union leaders bring them, but the Communications Workers of America hailed the tentative deal as a win, and from the summary the union offered, it looks like one. Not only did the workers beat back efforts to cut their health care benefits and get a significant raise over the course of the contract, but they won safe staffing ratios for the first time, with the new staffing levels to be fully implemented by January 1, 2023. That’s a significant advance for the workers and, of course, it’s also a win for patients who will be guaranteed care from workers who aren’t stretched across too many patients. ● FedEx is fiercely non-union. UPS workers are unionized. Guess which of the delivery companies is having labor shortage problems. Yep, the one that keeps its wages low and turnover...
    The Jack Eichel trade has finally happened, but did the Buffalo Sabres get enough in return for  their former franchise cornerstone? It’s finally over. Jack Eichel has finally been traded from the Buffalo Sabres. After months of trade rumors, tension, and potential legal grievances from both sides, now both they can finally move on as Eichel heads to Vegas. However, did the Sabres get enough in return for their former captain? The full trade is Jack Eichel and a conditional 2023 third-round pick to the Vegas Golden Knights in exchange for Peyton Krebs, Alex Tuch, a top-10 protected 2022 first-round pick, and a conditional 2023 second-round pick. At first glance, this seems like a flimsy return after the months of drama and holding out, but more on that later. We have acquired forwards Peyton Krebs and Alex Tuch, a top-10 protected 2022 first-round pick, and a 2023 second-round pick in exchange for forward Jack Eichel and a 2023 third-round pick.

    The Buffalo Sabres have finally traded Jack Eichel, but who is the their new forward, Alex Tuch? After months, or really years on some level, of speculation it’s finally done. The Buffalo Sabres have traded center Jack Eichel and a 2023 third-round pick to the Vegas Golden Knights for winger Alex Tuch, prospect Peyton Krebs, a 2022 first-round pick and a 2023 second-round pick with conditions that may shift those picks.

    Buffalo Bills legend O.J. Simpson took to Twitter to let fans know he’s at Highmark Stadium to watch the Week 8 showdown against Miami.  Few people in Buffalo have forgotten about the sensational career running back O.J. Simpson had with the Bills. Simpson spent nine amazing seasons in town before closing out his playing says with two years in San Francisco. Well, Simpson hasn’t forgotten about his former team, as he’s still got plenty of love for the Bills. Simpson reminded folks of that on Twitter, as he posted a video of him at the stadium for Sunday’s tilt with the Miami Dolphins.

    In big-city mayoral elections, attracting enough votes to win apparently matters. In city after city, Democrats who previously heeded Black Lives Matter’s calls to "defund the police" by reducing law enforcement budgets or reallocating police funds to other uses are now stressing crackdowns on crime as Election Day nears, The Washington Post reported Saturday. "Mayors aren’t stupid, and they understand if taxpaying residents of their city start leaving, as they did in the 1970s, the whole city is endangered," Ned Hill, an Ohio State professor who studies city politics, told the newspaper.

    (CBS Boston) — Playing the matchup game can net a fantasy owner plenty of points if they pick the right player in the right week. It can also lead to losses, since many of the best scorers produce regardless of the opponent and aren’t available on the waiver wire regardless. Kirk Cousins has been fairly steady this season, putting up at least 26 points in four of his six games. And he’s done it against decent defenses. He’ll get another chance in Week 8, when the Minnesota Vikings host the Dallas Cowboys. The Cowboys defense is middle of the pack, giving up yards and points, in part, because opposing defenses struggle to contain their offense. If this Sunday’s matchup turns into a shootout, expect Cousins to pile up the points. He has the offensive weapons to be a fantasy winner.

    CUSTER, South Dakota — Gov. Kristi Noem (R-SD) told Breitbart News that her background farming and ranching informs her decision-making in politics, serving as a foundation for what she calls her “problem-solving, common-sense approach” to governing. “This is a special place,” Noem said in an interview in Custer State Park after its annual Governor’s Buffalo Roundup. “These traditions really remind people of our history and they remind us of where we all come from. We love it—we just think it reconnects us to the outdoors and to other people.” Noem had just finished riding in the annual roundup of about 1,400 buffalo—one of the last remaining herds in the United States, kept on the state park lands—where she and dozens of others on horseback and even more in pickup trucks gather the creatures from their natural grazing lands, round them up, and drive them to corrals once a year. The calves are branded and immunized at the corrals and some of the buffalo are auctioned off to keep the state’s herd at a consistent number around 1,400. Noem herself has...
    (CNN)On paper, India Walton is a shoo-in to become Buffalo's next mayor. The Democratic nominee, who defeated incumbent Mayor Byron Brown in a June primary, is the only name on the general election ballot for the city's top job.But in reality, Walton, a 39-year-old Democratic Socialist and first-time candidate, is locked in a tough race with Brown, who after losing the nomination and failing in the courts to create a new party line ahead of the November 2 vote, launched a write-in campaign. The showdown between Walton and Brown, who is seeking a fifth term, escalated over the summer and into the fall as a proxy fight between the city and state's growing progressive movement and more business-friendly, establishment Democrats determined to block Walton's ascent -- and prevent her from becoming the first socialist mayor of a major American city in more than 60 years. As early voting begins 10 days out from the election, both candidates are running fiery campaigns that have drawn attention from well outside Buffalo, as the Democratic Party's ideological split comes under the spotlight in...

    After the Buffalo Bills lost their Monday Night Football matchup against the Tennessee Titans on a controversial coaching decision, Fox Sports host Chris Broussard thought he had the perfect hot take. With seconds left in the game, the Bills bypassed a possible chip shot game-tying field goal and instead attempted to convert on fourth and short. Bills quarterback Josh Allen dove forward for the quarterback sneak, but he slipped and the play was quickly stuffed by Tennessee, ending the game in regulation. Tuesday morning on First Things First, Broussard managed to come up with what he considered obvious analysis, yet shockingly, no other analyst had the gall to utter it. “Yes Josh Allen slipped, but it got blown up on the left side because of the pressure by Tennessee. I wonder why? Could it be because Buffalo’s Pro Bowl left tackle Taylor Lewan was injured?” Broussard asked. The Pro Bowl left tackle was injured in the game and carted off the field to be evaluated for a possible concussion. But Lewan’s injury had no impact on Buffalo’s ability to run...
    The Buffalo Bills elected to go for fourth-and-1 rather than kick a game-tying field goal. They were unsuccessful and lost to the Titans in Week 6. Monday Night Football delivered one heck of a game in Week 6 with the Buffalo Bills visiting the Tennessee Titans. The two AFC foes were trading haymakers throughout the night with Josh Allen and his team pulling out all the stops and Derrick Henry continuing to be unstoppable for Tennessee. Henry’s third touchdown of the night gave the Titans a 34-31 lead with just three minutes on the clock, but that appeared to be enough time for some heroics by Allen and the Bills. And indeed, he drove Buffalo down the field and got them deep into Tennessee territory. After a will run that sent the quarterback airborne was (rightly) ruled short of the line to gain, though, head coach Sean McDermott faced a tough decision. Go for it on fourth down to try and win in regulation or kick the field goal to likely force overtime? McDermott put his faith in Allen and went...

    (CBS Boston) — Having one of the Kansas City Chiefs’ offensive skill players in your fantasy lineup can certainly help your scoring output. But that hasn’t necessarily been a guarantee this season. While Patrick Mahomes has generally been consistent (turnover issues not withstanding), other players have had off-weeks. It’s been feast or famine with receiver Tyreek Hill. Travis Kelce picked up just two points against the Philadelphia Eagles. And running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire sometimes seemed to disappear from the offense. Edwards-Helaire is now on injured reserve with a knee injury. Darrel Williams is set to take over the starting spot. Is he in for a big game against a Washington Football Team defense that can’t seem to stop anyone this season? Or will he struggle to get touches with so much other talent on the field?

    The Buffalo Bills delivered a statement win against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday Night Football and one thing is clear: the Bills are better than we thought. A rematch of the AFC Championship would always prove to be an interesting story arc. The Buffalo Bills were hoping to exorcise the demons from nine months earlier while simultaneously improving their record to 4-1. The Kansas City Chiefs — the winners of that playoff game back in January — were looking to get back on track and win back-to-back games. In doing so, they would reassert their dominance over one of the standout teams in the NFL so far. The Bills season so far has been impressive. It started with an ugly loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, but since then, they’ve ripped off four straight wins. That includes the 38-20 victory against the Chiefs on Sunday night. That was the Bills at their best. Josh Allen finished the day with four total touchdowns (3 passing, 1 rushing) and over 300 yards passing, plus another 59 on the ground. The defense wasn’t...
    ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — In putting the finishing touches on Buffalo’s most resonating win of the season, cornerback Tre’Davious White made his way to the sideline after recovering Patrick Mahomes’ fumble with a message to the few Chiefs fans who remained. “Bye bye,” White said, waving his hand. In the pouring rain at Arrowhead Stadium, White and the Bills enjoyed a cleansing moment in closing out a 38-20 victory in the early hours of Monday morning. Over a thunderstorm-delayed outing, Buffalo’s offense and defense were lights out in vanquishing the one opponent who stood in their way of reaching the Super Bowl last season. The 38 points matched the Chiefs’ output in a 38-24 win over the Bills in the AFC championship game in January. Josh Allen’s 315 yards passing and three touchdowns mirrored Mahomes’ 325-yard, three-TD outing the last time they met. And this time, Buffalo’s defense flexed its muscles by forcing four takeaways after wilting in two losses to the Chiefs last season, including a 26-17 decision in October. “Last year left a bad taste in my...
