Bills vs. Browns: rookie report

Bills vs. Browns: rookie report

How each Bills rookie performed last night against the Browns The Buffalo Bills earned a preseason victory against the Cleveland Browns in their second 2018 preseason game Friday night. How did the Bills eight 2018 NFL Draft picks, including quarterback Josh Allen, perform? Pretty darn well for the most part. Read about each rookie’s performance below. QB Josh Allen Allen entered the game early in the second quarter and immediately provided a spark, marching the team right down the field and completing a pretty pass to Rod Streater for a touchdown. On the touchdown throw, Allen showed...

Bills vs. Browns: stock up/stock down

Positive steps by rookies balanced out by poor offensive line play. The Buffalo Bills continued their 2018 preseason slate Friday night against the Cleveland Browns, coming out with a 19-17 victory. It was largely a down performance for the Bills starters, though the second string was able to dominate on both sides of the ball. Here are some of the players that helped themselves and some that failed to impress. Stock Up: QB Josh Allen Thanks to both his positive play and the collarbone injury suffered by AJ McCarron, Allen has never been closer to being declared the team’s starting...

Bills punter Cory Carter tears ACL against Browns

Bills punter Cory Carter tears ACL against Browns

The Bills backup punter was slammed into by the Browns Jordan Payton in last night’s preseason tilt. The Buffalo Bills medical staff likely feared the worst after Bills backup punter Cory Carter was interfered with by Cleveland Browns wide receiver Jordan Payton and crumpled to the ground during the third quarter of last night’s preseason game. Unfortunately, it has been confirmed by NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport: Carter has torn his ACL and is out for the year. This marks a second devastating injury for the second-year punter. Last year he was waived with an injury designation by the...

Bills vs. Browns: Third string live blog & open thread

The Bills lead by three as the third string, including quarterback Nathan Peterman, take to the field After an up-and-down first half of preseason action, the Buffalo Bills find themselves leading 13-7 as the third-string players take to the field against the Cleveland Browns. In the first quarter, AJ McCarron couldn't move the first team offense, and despite only surrendering a single touchdown, the starting Bills defense was gashed on the ground. Offensively, the Bills did not earn a first down until 10:59 in the second quarter. After coming in early in that same quarter, Josh Allen...

Bills vs. Panthers: five position battle updates

Bills vs. Panthers: five position battle updates

The Bills received some clarity on a few of the position battles during Thursday’s game against the Panthers Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott recently came out and stated that preseason games carry quite a bit of weight when it comes to evaluating player performance during the NFL offseason. If that is the case, the coach must have been happy with the performances of several of his players during the team’s first 2018 preseason game on Thursday against the Carolina Panthers. Here’s how each of the five position battles shook out: Quarterback Nathan Peterman (9-for-9, 119 yards,...

Bills vs. Panthers: stock up/stock down

The Bills quarterbacks had a night to remember against the Panthers. The Buffalo Bills began their 2018 preseason slate by putting up a good fight against the Carolina Panthers but ultimately losing 28-23. Here are some of the players that helped themselves and some that failed to impress. Stock Up: QB Nathan Peterman/QB AJ McCarron Both Bills quarterbacks competing for the starting job had largely flawless performances against the Panthers. Peterman began the day going 9-of-10 for 119 yards, a touchdown and an interception on a tipped pass. Peterman’s connection with number 1 wide...

Buffalo Bills vs. Carolina Panthers: Backups Open Thread

Buffalo Bills vs. Carolina Panthers: Backups Open Thread

A positive first quarter for Nathan Peterman, as the Bills backups on both sides of the ball now take to the field. Bills quarterback Nathan Peterman has to be pleased after that impressive quarter of preseason action. After finally being declared the starting quarterback tonight, Peterman’s first drive was a relatively clean one that resulted in a beautiful touchdown pass to Kelvin Benjamin. The Peterman-Benjamin connection was particularly fruitful during the scoring drive, as the 6’5” receiver physically dominated former Buffalo Bill Kevon Seymour. The former Pitt quarterback was...

WR Zay Jones, DE Trent Murphy headline the list of inactives tonight

Three wideouts, a linebacker and a starting defensive end won’t be playing in tonight’s game The Buffalo Bills released their list of inactive players for tonight’s preseason game against the Carolina Panthers. Among the names are starting defensive end Trent Murphy and wide receiver Zay Jones. Jones has been dealing with the aftermath of his offseason knee injury, while Murphy is continuing to nurse a groin injury that was sustained last week in training camp. Rookie undrafted free agent and training camp standout Cam Phillips is also nursing a groin injury that was sustained last...

Five position battles to watch against Carolina

Five position battles to watch against Carolina

Here are the top position battles and the competitors that have the most riding on tonight’s game. The Buffalo Bills open up their 2018 preseason slate tonight against the Carolina Panthers. Preseason performances can be essential for determining which players deserve to start at certain positions, and the coaching staff has no shortage of battles to evaluate this preseason. Head coach Sean McDermott recently stressed the importance of the preseason games himself, stating that “The games are important…we put a little bit more weight into games.” The Bills have several competitions...

Bills wide receiver competition update

Bills wide receiver competition update

Two veterans continue to impress while this year’s undrafted free agents may be outplaying the drafted players. The Buffalo Bills lineup at wide receiver last year was widely decried as being abysmal. The leading pass catcher on the team was running back LeSean McCoy, with tight end Charles Clay behind him. The Bills attempted to address the need in the offseason, by signing journeymen Kaelin Clay and Jeremy Kerley while drafting rookies Ray-Ray McCloud III and Austin Proehl. Finally, they brought in Cam Philips and Robert Foster as undrafted free agents. The plan then was to unleash all...

Bills offensive line competition update

Bills offensive line competition update

Both starting center prospects continue to rotate while competitions at guard and right tackle haven’t surfaced yet After the Buffalo Bills dealt with both the retirement of starting center Eric Wood and the pseudo-retirement of starting left guard Richie Incognito, it was thought that most positions along the offensive line, besides left tackle, would be up for grabs. However, besides the obvious competition under way at center between Russell Bodine and Ryan Groy, that assumption appears to be premature. Continuing a trend that started in week 3 of OTAs, Bodine and Groy have been...

WR Brandon Reilly stands out on Day 1 of Bills Camp

WR Brandon Reilly stands out on Day 1 of Bills Camp

The former undrafted free agent managed to most of the attention on his first day at St. John Fisher After a standout 2017 training camp and a preseason in which he led the Buffalo Bills in receptions (11 catches for 139 yards), Buffalo kept wide receiver Brandon Reilly on their practice squad during the regular season. Although he was eventually called up and saw some snaps, he never was able to catch any passes during live action. This year however, if he can stand out both in training camp and the preseason, he has a clear shot, not only to make the team, but for substantial playing...

NFL receivers on the roster bubble for Bills to consider

NFL receivers on the roster bubble for Bills to consider

These wideouts could make decent additions to the Bills after training camp cutdowns. The Buffalo Bills wide receiver corps may be one of the worst in the NFL. After nominal starters Kelvin Benjamin and Zay Jones, it’s a grab bag filled largely with mediocre veterans (Jeremy Kerley, Kaelin Clay, Rod Streater, Andre Holmes) and unknown rookies hoping to make an impact (Ray-Ray McCloud, Cam Phillips, Robert Foster, Austin Proehl). It’s clear the position needs an infusion of talent, one that may come September 1st, which is the day when teams need to trim their roster to get to 53...
