Penalties don’t hinder Bills, Chargers despite Jones helmet-less shot

Penalties don’t hinder Bills, Chargers despite Jones helmet-less shot

While it felt like the refs spent an eternity discussing flags on Sunday, the volume was surprisingly low. If you watched the Buffalo Bills host the Los Angeles Chargers you likely felt that the game was bogged down by tons of penalties. Surprisingly, both teams performed quite well in the yellow flag department. An inexperienced crew likely helped slow things down, but... Well let’s get to the charts. Standard and Advanced Metrics Penalty Counts The league average dipped about 0.7 flags per team in Week two which is actually pretty wild. Even with that major dip overall,...

Analysis: Lotulelei contributing, but not on the stat sheet

With Star Lotulelei finally seeing a starter’s amount of reps, let’s check in and see how he’s doing One of the bigger signings during the offseason was the acquisition of former Panthers defensive tackle Star Lotulelei. The Buffalo Bills often struggled with stopping the run in 2017, a problem that wasn’t helped when they traded Marcell Dareus. Lotulelei was signed to occupy offensive linemen so the rest of the team could make plays. Now that the snap counts suggest he’s fully healthy from a back injury, let’s take a look at how he played against the Los Angeles Chargers. Play...

Bills elevate CB Ryan Lewis to active roster, sign two to practice squad

Bills elevate CB Ryan Lewis to active roster, sign two to practice squad

The cornerback found his way back onto Buffalo’s roster. The Buffalo Bills have acted on the vacancy created when cornerback Vontae Davis absconded on Sunday, promoting cornerback Ryan Lewis from the practice squad to replace the missing depth. Lewis was on the roster in week one, but shunted down to the practice squad when the Bills claimed Ike Boettger on waivers. With Davis gone, and Taron Johnson and Phillip Gaines injured, the only healthy corners on the roster were Tre’Davious White and Lafayette Pitts. Both Johnson and Gaines have the potential to play on Sunday, but if one of...

Vontae Davis quits on Bills, tarnishes legacy

Vontae Davis quits on Bills, tarnishes legacy

The talented cornerback erased years of quality play on the field by abandoning his teammates. Vontae Davis spent 10 years building his football legacy, earning two Pro Bowl honors and finishing as the league’s second-best cornerback in 2014, according to Pro Football Focus. Whatever sort of legacy he created during his first 10 years in the league was forever tarnished and destroyed with one cowardly gesture Sunday afternoon. As the Buffalo Bills (0-2) returned to New Era Field for the second half of their home opener, a 31-20 setback to the Los Angeles Chargers, they did it with Davis,...

Week 3 power rankings keep Bills in the basement

The Bills are still firmly in the back seat. After their second straight loss to open the season, this one to the Los Angeles Chargers, the Buffalo Bills find themselves dead last in all of the media’s power rankings heading into Week three. In ESPN’s power rankings, they have the Bills holding that 32nd spot for the entire season and are already looking forward to the 2019 NFL Draft: “The bad news: The Bills might be the worst team in the NFL.

Bills fantasy football: Allen leads the way in scoring

Bills fantasy football: Allen leads the way in scoring

The rookie quarterback is Buffalo’s top scorer through two weeks The 0-2 Buffalo Bills are not exactly a popular roster to mine for fantasy football talent. However, after last week’s 20-point showing against the Los Angeles Chargers, there are signs that indicate there are some players who may become useful as the season progresses. Just a week after the team’s leading scorer was a backup quarterback who totaled only 5.56 points, the Bills had six players surpass that total against the Chargers. Zay Jones caught 2 passes for 63 yards, with the majority of that total coming on a...

Bills opponent fantasy football: RB Gordon dominates

Bills opponent fantasy football: RB Gordon dominates

The Bills were unable to stop the versatile back The Buffalo Bills defense was putrid for the first 6 quarters of the 2018 NFL season. They allowed 75 points and well in excess of 500 total yards. As a result, multiple players from the Baltimore Ravens and the Los Angeles Chargers had tremendous scoring days in fantasy football. The Chargers had 2 players go for more than 20 points this week, and 2 more go for double-digit scoring. Buffalo has been a great matchup for quarterbacks so far, and that is a trend that figures to continue with Kirk Cousins and Aaron Rodgers next up on the...

Podcast: Opinions on Josh Allen’s first start, lackluster defense, and more

Two weeks into the 2018 NFL season, and the Buffalo Bills (0-2) appear to be a flawed team on offense, with a defense that has (for the most part) struggled to keep opposing offenses off the scoreboard. The disturbing trends from Week 1’s blowout loss to the Baltimore Ravens carried over into Sunday’s home opener as the Bills dropped a 31-20 decision to the Los Angeles Chargers (1-1) at New Era Field. Buffalo Rumblings podcast host John Boccacino is joined by co-host Anthony Marino to dissect the Bills loss to Chargers in a game that served as rookie Josh Allen’s first-career NFL...

Five Bills to watch: CB2 remains a problem

Five Bills to watch: CB2 remains a problem

What’s worse than having two starting corners perform poorly? How about losing them both before the second half! The Buffalo Bills had issues at cornerback before Sunday’s 31-20 defeat at the hands of the Los Angeles Chargers. After losing two more corners during the game, however, the position is in dire straits. While there were some signs of hope from most of our players to watch on Sunday, the glaring defensive issues need to be fixed quickly, as the Bills play two teams on the road with fantastic quarterbacks over the next two weeks (the Minnesota Vikings and Kirk Cousins,...

Rookies had ups and downs against Chargers

Rookies had ups and downs against Chargers

Allen’s first start wasn’t exactly shocking, while Edmunds was a dud The Buffalo Bills sank to 0-2 on Sunday courtesy of Phillip Rivers and the Los Angeles Chargers. Josh Allen’s first NFL start was a mixed bag while Tremaine Edmunds struggled with indecision on several big plays by the offense. More about the performance of the Bills’ entire 2018 rookie class below. QB Josh Allen The first-rounder played like a rookie against the Chargers, while mixing in a fair amount of “wow” throws to keep it interesting. Allen was a bit gun-shy in the first half and was careful not to...
