3 Falcons up, 3 Falcons down in Week 4 loss to Bills

3 Falcons up, 3 Falcons down in Week 4 loss to Bills

It was the worst of times, it was the worst of times. Atlanta came up short Sunday, falling 23-17 to the Buffalo Bills. The Falcons stand at 3-1 — still atop the NFC South — and head into a much-needed Week 5 bye. Who’s up and who’s down in the loss? Up Grady Jarrett Jarrett should easily make the Pro Bowl at the rate he’s going. The defensive tackle was largely disruptive against the Bills, as he’s been the entire season. Tevin Coleman On just 13 touches, Coleman racked up 144 total yards, making himself one of the few bright spots on offense. He led the team in both rushing...

Buffalo Bills kicker Stephen Hauschka sets team record for long field goals

Buffalo Bills kicker Stephen Hauschka sets team record for long field goals

He’s played four games with the team, and he’s already fourth in 50+ yarders as well The Buffalo Bills have ridden a number of hot hands to their 3-1 start in 2017, but it’s hard to argue that any of them have been hotter than kicker Stephen Hauschka. After missing his lone field goal try against the New York Jets, Hauschka is a perfect 8-for-8 in the last three games, including a 3-for-3 performance against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. What’s even more impressive is the distance some of those field goals came from. He hit from 53 and 55 yards out against the Denver Broncos, and...

Buffalo Bills lose two starters to injury against Atlanta Falcons

Buffalo Bills lose two starters to injury against Atlanta Falcons

The Bills will be without some starters for a while Before Week four, the Buffalo Bills had been extremely fortunate when it came to injuries. Things changed fast in the dramatic upset win over the Atlanta Falcons. Many starters and some key contributors will be on the shelf for a while. Wide receiver Jordan Matthews suffered a thumb injury on one of the final drives of the game on Sunday. Head coach Sean McDermott announced Monday that the first-year Bill will require surgery. Although McDermott didn’t announce a timetable for his return, reports are that Matthews could be out for a...

Falcons streak that Bills brought to an end

The Bills win was obviously huge because they beat the defending NFC champions. But the way they won, using turnovers and holding Atlanta off the scoreboard is what made the victory so impressive. The Falcons entered the game having scored 23 points or more in 12 straight games dating back to last season, counting the […]

Buffalo Bills receiver Jordan Matthews to miss “at least a month” with thumb injury

Buffalo Bills receiver Jordan Matthews to miss “at least a month” with thumb injury

The Bills will be shorthanded at an already-thin position. As first reported by WGR’s Sal Capaccio, the Buffalo Bills could be without top wide receiver Jordan Matthews for at least a month after the thumb injury he suffered in Sunday’s 23-17 win over the Atlanta Falcons. Matthews will undergo surgery to repair the thumb, the second injury he’s suffered since the Bills acquired him via trade from the Philadelphia Eagles in August for Ronald Darby (who has yet to return to the field after an opening-week ankle injury) and a third-round pick. He missed almost all of his offseason work...

Bills Links, 10/2: Buffalo Bills fans can trust the process

The Buffalo Bills are atop the AFC East at 3-1 The thoughts of the Buffalo Bills heading into Atlanta and defeating the NFC Champion Falcons seemed like a longshot for even the most loyal of fans to believe. But while many fans and media experts gave the team little chance, the Bills pulled out the 23-17 victory on Sunday. There is plenty of coverage on the stars of the game including Micah Hyde, Charles Clay, Tra’davious White, Tyrod Taylor, Jerry Hughes, Stephen Hauschka and much more.

Falcons vs. Bills recap: The worst loss of the season (hopefully) comes early

Falcons vs. Bills recap: The worst loss of the season (hopefully) comes early

It was bad! But it was not fatal. Two hours ago, I wrote you a friendly little reminder that the Atlanta Falcons are good, fine, and not to be fretted over. Now, though, we gotta talk about that last game, and there just isn’t much I can do to sugarcoat how awful that loss was. It was, thanks to its close margin, ugliness, and general level of frustration, hopefully the worst loss of the year. It just may not prove to be a significant one, once we’ve put our in-game feelings aside. The Falcons were horrendously unlucky to lose this one. Cruelly, they lost this one by like a yard,...

Three things we learned from the Buffalo Bills’ 23-17 win over the Atlanta Falcons

Three things we learned from the Buffalo Bills’ 23-17 win over the Atlanta Falcons

Charles Clay is a threat every time he’s on the field. In terms of big wins during the playoff drought, you would be hard pressed to find one that is bigger than the victory the Buffalo Bills came away with on Sunday. With that big win, Buffalo sits at 3-1 and alone atop the AFC East. The win also provided us fans some insight into what this team is all about. Here are a few of those things that we learned following the 23-17 victory. 1.) These are not the same ole’ Bills When the Bills kicked a field goal to go up by 6 with just over a minute left in the game, admit it: you thought...

Buffalo Bills stop Atlanta Falcons’ last play with 10 men on field

Buffalo Bills stop Atlanta Falcons’ last play with 10 men on field

Excellent coverage more than made up for the disadvantage. The Atlanta Falcons came close to scoring a game-winning touchdown against the Buffalo Bills yesterday, but they failed to convert a fourth-and-1 with under a minute left after an incomplete pass from Matt Ryan to Taylor Gabriel. The Bills defended the play very well ... and they did it with only ten men on the field.

Buffalo Bills 23, Atlanta Falcons 17: game balls

An all around win for the Bills and these three guys stood out most The Buffalo Bills went on the road and upset a very good Atlanta Falcons team on Sunday. No particular part of the game was perfect from Sean McDermott and his crew, but all three phases were really good. These three guys stood out the most in each of the three areas of the game Offense: TE Charles Clay Clay came up big in this game a few times. He is clearly quarterback Tyrod Taylor’s most trusted target early in the season. Clay totaled five receptions on seven total targets. Two of Clay’s catches went for big...

Falcons-Bills post-game injury report: the infamous injury bug strikes again ... and again

Fact: Mohamed Sanu grows his own organic rhubarb The Atlanta Falcons lost to a good football team today. They didn’t do themselves any favors, turning the ball over and just generally failing to execute. But that said, the Buffalo Bills aren’t pushovers. The Falcons are now 3-1 headed into their bye week, which couldn’t come soon enough. Lately the Falcons have struggled to stay healthy, and it’s noticeably affecting how well this team plays. The injuries unfortunately kept coming today, so let’s break them down. Julio Jones injured his hip during the first half. He wanted to...

Archer's Take: Jones, Sanu injuries, turnovers and Bills D-line dictated tempo

Turnovers and injuries to Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu played a big role. But in his weekly break down, Falcons Analyst Dave Archer shows why the tempo favored the Buffalo Bills.

The Bills 4th-&-1 play was a go if…

On Buffalo’s marathon 19-play scoring drive that resulted in a short Stephen Hauschka field goal to push Buffalo’s lead to seven, the Bills had a chance to go for it on 4th-&-1 from the Falcons one-yard line. It appeared at first like they were in fact going for it. In the end Tyrod Taylor let […]
