Five Buffalo Bills to watch against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Here are the guys we are watching. The Buffalo Bills are coming off their week 6 bye week against a struggling Tampa Bay team. With Jameis Winston banged up and a defense who can't stop anyone at this point, now is the perfect chance for the Bills to come out and put a team away. Here are the five Bills who have a chance to make that happen early: QB Tyrod Taylor Tampa Bay is ranked 30th in total defense, giving up 403 yards per game. With 302 of those yards are through the air, they are allowing teams to complete over 70% of their passes. They also can't get to the quarterback with only...

Buffalo Bills rookie cornerback Tre’Davious White isn’t pleased with his play

Talented rookie thinks he has plenty of room to improve Life in the NFL can be rough for a rookie cornerback. Teams are throwing the ball now more than ever before in the history of the league. For rookies like the Buffalo Bills’ Tre’Davious White, the learning curve can vary greatly from week to week as they try and grasp the complexities of containing the league’s high-octane offenses. The general consensus across the league has been overwhelmingly positive regarding White’s play. Through the Bills (3-2) first five games, Pro Football Focus listed White as the No. 2 rated...

Buffalo Bills vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: keys to winning

Also, the keys to losing. The Buffalo Bills are fresh off their bye week and at playing at home this weekend against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Buffalo Bills failed to snag New England Patriots cornerback Ryan Lewis, per report

Buffalo Bills failed to snag New England Patriots cornerback Ryan Lewis, per report

The cornerback elected to stay with his team According to a report by ESPN’s Mike Reiss, earlier this season the Buffalo Bills tired to poach cornerback Ryan Lewis off the New England Patriots practice squad. When the Bills came calling, offering him a spot on the 53-man roster, Lewis declined the option to join the Bills, opting to stay on the Patriots practice squad. In order to keep him, New England offered him a raise to the rookie minimum salary of $465,000, more than most practice squad players make. Buffalo’s contract was likely for the same amount. Reiss says he stayed because...

Our SB Nation Bucs affiliate brings us up to speed on the state of Jameis Winston’s shoulder and the team’s struggling secondary. The Buffalo Bills are set to face their third NFC South opponent of the season on Sunday when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers come to town.

Lynch, who grabbed a game official during his team’s contest Thursday night, is appealing the decision.

Bills Links, 10/21: Is an offensive tackle going to be traded?

Rumors have the Bills in talks with the Broncos about a potential trade. While trade rumors are nothing new in the NFL, speculation is increasing that the Buffalo Bills could trade an offensive tackle prior to the trade deadline.

Buffalo Bills opponent scouting report: Tampa Bay Buccaneers tackle Donovan Smith

Buffalo Bills opponent scouting report: Tampa Bay Buccaneers tackle Donovan Smith

The weak link on Tampa’s offensive line could be the key to the game for Buffalo. As Buffalo Bills fans know all to well, one weak link on the offensive line can make or break a team and Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive tackle Donovan Smith could cause the game to break in the Bills favor. Smith was a second-round selection (No. 34 overall) out of Penn State in 2015. Since his rookie year, Smith has played in and started every game to this point (37 in all). Just because he is playing in every game, however, doesn’t mean that he is a top of the line starter. Smith can be effective, as...

More uncertainty for Buffalo Bills starting offensive line

More uncertainty for Buffalo Bills starting offensive line

Dion Dawkins or Cordy Glenn? Vlad Ducasse or John Miller? If head coach Sean McDermott knows what his exact mix of offensive linemen will be when his Buffalo Bills face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday, he’s doing a good job remaining noncommittal. While Richie Incognito and Eric Wood are all but guaranteed to start at left guard and center, respectively, speculation about the other three spots abounds. Right tackle Jordan Mills has been terrible all season, and with the addition of Seantrel Henderson to the active roster following a 10-game suspension for marijuana use, the...

Buffalo Bills injury report: Jordan Matthews questionable vs. Buccaneers

Buffalo Bills injury report: Jordan Matthews questionable vs. Buccaneers

Tampa Bay quarterback Jameis Winston will play in Buffalo on Sunday. Buffalo Bills wide receiver Jordan Matthews is only two-and-a-half weeks removed from thumb surgery, but he’s officially listed as questionable for Sunday’s tilt against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Without Matthews and tight end Charles Clay (who will not play on Sunday), the Bills’ offense struggled mightily in their 20-16 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals two weeks ago. Matthews hasn’t been a dominant force, with only ten catches for 162 yards and a touchdown in three-plus games this year, but he’s a dependable...

Are the Buffalo Bills’ signature wins over Broncos, Falcons really that special?

Are the Buffalo Bills’ signature wins over Broncos, Falcons really that special?

The Broncos and Falcons were a combined 5-0 when the Bills beat them. They’re a combined 1-3 since. Earlier this season, the Buffalo Bills pulled off consecutive wins over the then-undefeated Denver Broncos (in Buffalo) and Atlanta Falcons (in Atlanta), and there was much rejoicing. Those were two very impressive wins at the time. In the ensuing weeks, however, a little bit of the luster has come off those games, given the struggles of the teams they came against. Since losing to the Bills, the Broncos beat the Oakland Raiders by six points in a game finished by EJ Manuel, had their bye...
