Kelvin Benjamin, Zay Jones lead unimpressive Buffalo Bills wide receiver group

The Bills would be wise to add another body to the receiving corps in 2018 The Buffalo Bills supposedly had a weak wide receiver group for the majority of the 2016 NFL season. What was supposed to be a group headlined by Sammy Watkins, Robert Woods, and Greg Salas became a group where Justin Hunter was claimed off waivers and instantly saw snaps, Marquise Goodwin saw the most significant playing time of his career, and Percy Harvin was signed off of his couch. In the offseason, the Bills jettisoned nearly every wide receiver who was on the roster the year before. They allowed Woods and...

Gaines, to linebacker Ramon Humber, wide receiver Jordan Matthews, and running back Travaris Cadet to injuries. Two of the biggest and most frustrating injury situations in 2017 centered around wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin, who was acquired by the Bills from the Carolina Panthers at the NFL’s trade deadline, and left tackle Cordy Glenn. Benjamin, who was...

Why were the Carolina Panthers 19-22-1 with Kelvin Benjamin and 23-3 without him?

Why were the Carolina Panthers 19-22-1 with Kelvin Benjamin and 23-3 without him?

In what has to be one of the quirkiest stats in recent NFL history, from 2014 through Week 16 of the 2017 season, the Carolina Panthers went 19-22-1 when Benjamin played and 23-3 when he didn’t, playoffs included. The Carolina Panthers selected Kelvin Benjamin in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft. After a productive rookie campaign (73 receptions, 1,008 yards, nine touchdowns), Benjamin then missed the entire 2015 season due to injury. He played the full 2016 season (63-941-7) and then in 2017 the Panthers shockingly traded him to the Buffalo Bills after Week 8. In what has to be...

Bills Injury Report: Deonte Thompson suffers shoulder injury

The wide receiver is also working his way back from a back injury he suffered last Sunday Buffalo Bills wide receiver Deonte Thompson suffered a shoulder injury at Thursday’s practice and is “still being evaluated,” head coach Sean McDermott said. Following the injury, Thompson left the practice field accompanied by one of the team’s athletic trainers. Rookie Zay Jones filled in at practice for Thompson. Staying with the wide receivers group, Kelvin Benjamin (knee) made his return to practice after missing Wednesday’s session. As did a vital member of the Bills defensive line,...

Bills offense disappearing in the second half

Bills offense disappearing in the second half

Buffalo hasn’t scored a meaningful second-half TD since Week 8 vs. Oakland The Buffalo Bills (8-7) played one half of good offensive football during their Christmas Eve loss at the New England Patriots (12-3) and should have led 17-13 heading into intermission thanks to Tyrod Taylor’s four-yard touchdown pass to Kelvin Benjamin. Unfortunately for Bills fans, Benjamin’s TD catch was overturned (and Charles Clay dropped the preceding touchdown pass), Buffalo had to settle for a short Stephen Hauschka field goal, and went into the locker room tied at 13. Buffalo managed to drive...

Buffalo Bills owner Terry Pegula weighs in on Kelvin Benjamin’s overturned touchdown, replay

Sean McDermott and Kelvin Benjamin both shared their thoughts, as well. Just before halftime of their Week 16 game against the New England Patriots, Buffalo Bills wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin caught a touchdown pass. The game official standing there called it as such. A few minutes later, referee Craig Wrolstad overturned the call. “When the receiver got confirmed control of the football, he was not able to get both feet down in bounds,” Wrolstad said after the game. “So, his back foot was already off the ground and it stepped out of bounds. His firm control did not occur until after...

Bills Links, 12/26: overturned touchdown dominates Patriots postgame discussion

Plenty to discuss following the Bills 37-16 loss in New England There has been plenty to discuss since the Buffalo Bills lost to the New Englabd Patriots on Sunday.

Buffalo Bills 16, New England Patriots 37: Referee garbage soils a good game

Controversial calls led to a Patriots win in this one. The Buffalo Bills gave their best try against the division-leading New England Patriots, but key circumstances didn’t play out in their favor, and the Patriots eventually pulled ahead to a 37-16 win over the Bills. Through two quarters, the Bills were hanging right there with the Patriots, tied at 13 points each. Jordan Poyer intercepted Tom Brady and brought it back for a touchdown, and the Bills drove into the red zone three times. At the end of the half, it looked like Kelvin Benjamin had scored a touchdown to give Buffalo the...

What is a catch? Referee steals touchdown catch from Buffalo Bills receiver Kelvin Benjamin

What is a catch? Referee steals touchdown catch from Buffalo Bills receiver Kelvin Benjamin

This was disgusting. The referees just straight up stole a touchdown from the Buffalo Bills at the end of the first half, overturning a called touchdown catch by Kelvin Benjamin with just two seconds remaining before halftime. On the call for CBS, Jim Nantz thought it was a catch, even pointing out the pellets coming up from the turf. Contrarily, Tony Romo thought he may not have had control. At halftime, the entire CBS studio crew agreed it should have been a catch. As they went to halftime, the ref was explaining the call to Bills head coach Sean McDermott who was staring straight...
