One stat recap: another big day from Robert Foster

One stat recap: another big day from Robert Foster

Robert Foster rapidly rising up the rookie receiver rankings The Buffalo Bills notched their fifth win of the 2018 season at home on Sunday against the Detroit Lions. The win looked a lot like some of the wins from 2017—limit turnovers, play solid defense, and hit some big plays. The game was decided by special teams for the third straight week, but for the first time in that stretch it was not the Bills’ special teams making mistakes. The Lions missed an extra point and a field goal. Making either of those would’ve likely changed the outcome of the game. However, the more interesting...

Singing “Bills Dad” Dick DeGroat falsely accused of inappropriate advances

We’ve all been told to be cautious on social media and take certain posts with a grain of salt. Sometimes, however, even the best of us get caught in a situation that someone with poor intentions created. Dick DeGroat is a person who can attest to the previous statement. Known as “Bills Dad” on social media and especially Twitter, Dick DeGroat is an avid Buffalo Bills fan. Adorned in his “Bills Dad” jersey, he uploads videos of himself singing popular songs that he’s re-written to give a Bills-themed twist. Here’s one from earlier this season: Week 14.

SB Nation mock draft sends Rashan Gary to Bills

If the best player available is a defensive lineman, what will the Bills do? Only two weeks remain in Buffalo’s season, which means the NFL offseason stove is preheating. At 5-9, clustered with four other teams who share the same record, the Buffalo Bills could face a top ten draft pick in April, and NFL draft conversation is already familiar to fans of the team. SB Nation just published its first mock draft of the season, penned as always by Dan Kadar. His projection for the Bills steers in a different direction than most fans have been thinking. 10.

Snap count notes: Lions at Bills

With key players injured and the Bills in eval mode, snap counts are intriguing this week The Buffalo Bills entered Week 15 with key starters such as LeSean McCoy and Matt Milano injured. The Bills also were officially in “let’s get ready for next year” mode. Both factors combined for a lot of playing time for some new faces against the Detroit Lions. Let’s look at who contributed to Sunday’s win! Offense (68 snaps) The 100% club on offense was one player short this week. John Miller was replaced by rookie Ike Boettger for nine plays. The Bills did a similar swap...

Penalty recap: Stats can’t tell the whole story

Despite low penalty stats nearly all around, yellow flags tipped the scales The roller coaster of flags continues for the Buffalo Bills. While they remain the second-worst league in the team behind the Kansas City Chiefs, the Bills have been incredibly volatile. This week against the Detroit Lions, the official log only credits them with three. But stats don’t do a great job with this game. Dive in and you’ll see what I mean. Standard and Advanced Metrics Penalty Count What a weird game. The official stats will show that both teams were well below the league averaged as...

2019 NFL Draft order: Bills tumble to the 10th

Victory over Detroit means the Lions actually sit three spots ahead at the seventh pick Since Josh Allen has returned from injury the Buffalo Bills draft position in the 2019 NFL Draft have started to resemble an EKG machine.

Jets DL Henry Anderson fined for hit on Hauschka

Jets DL Henry Anderson fined for hit on Hauschka

While the play wasn’t penalized, Anderson still lost some cash as a result of the cheap shot New York Jets defensive lineman Henry Anderson was not penalized for a blindside block against Buffalo Bills kicker Stephen Hauschka last week. However, the NFL acknowledged that the play was unnecessary by fining the 300-pound defensive lineman for the cheap shot. Anderson’s hit on Hauschka drew a $10,026 fine, according to NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport. In the context of Anderson’s overall salary, that isn’t a tremendous amount, as the fourth-year player is slated to make $1,907,000...

Allen, Daboll lead five takeaways from Bills game against Lions

Allen, Daboll lead five takeaways from Bills game against Lions

Josh Allen is continuing to improve. The Buffalo Bills found a way to hold on Sunday, beating the Detroit Lions 14-13 in come-from-behind fashion. The Bills dealt with injuries and drops all over the field, but scraped together two outstanding touchdown drives. Here are my five observations: Josh Allen is the Bills offense I’m just recycling talking points right now, but with the running back injury situation, it isn’t too far off. He didn’t have the wheels today like he’s had in the past couple weeks, but his passing may be starting to catch up with his running. He had some nice...

Bills beat Lions: Rapid reaction and notes

Bills beat Lions: Rapid reaction and notes

Robert Foster had another great day. Josh Allen avoided mistakes, the Buffalo Bills defense clamped down in the second half, and the Bills won a low-scoring battle over the Detroit Lions, 14-13. Explosive plays were hard to come by for Buffalo, who had a few potential bombs fall out of receivers’ fingertips, but rookie Robert Foster came through in a big way. The rookie led the Bills in receiving with four catches for 108 yards and a touchdown, and drew a long pass interference penalty to set up Buffalo’s first touchdown. Allen played well within Brian Daboll’s structure, especially...

Isaiah McKenzie leaves game against Detroit Lions with non-contact injury

The Bills’ speedster crumpled to the turf. Isaiah McKenzie, the speedy returner and receiver for the Buffalo Bills, has been carted off the field with a non-contact injury suffered on a punt return. It’s a blow to a Bills team already devoid of playmakers on offense. Here's the play Isaiah McKenzie got hurt on. He took a few steps on a punt return then fell to the ground and was then carted off. @WGRZ pic.twitter.com/1PCfEvfYvK— Heather Prusak (@haprusak) December 16, 2018 McKenzie was added off the waiver wire earlier this season after he was released by the Denver Broncos and...
