    Stefon Diggs took a moment pregame to make a young Buffalo fan's day, and perhaps Christmas, in a touching moment at Ford Field Thursday.  The wideout noticed a sign held by a woman, saying 'all I want for Christmas is to play catch with Diggs' while warming up. He then duly obliged in the hours prior to a thrilling 28-25 win over Detroit.  Diggs helped the boy, wearing a Josh Allen jersey, down from the stands before calling him on to the turf to play catch. .@stefondiggs brought this @BuffaloBills fan on the field to have a catch with him.Best Thanksgiving ever. ????❤️????: #BUFvsDET -- 12:30pm ET on CBS????: Stream on NFL+ https://t.co/rs1CGFUmVT pic.twitter.com/Hs3Fr7252d— NFL (@NFL) November 24, 2022 Buffalo fan favorite receiver Stefon Diggs endeared himself to NFL fans everywhere Thursday The young fan excitedly ran onto Ford Field, reeling in a pass from the two-time Pro Bowler before launching one back in the mold of his favorite quarterback.  After completing the catch, the 28-year-old gave his new friend one final gift; a high-five before the boy ran back...
    Getty New York Jets players celebrate a win over the Buffalo Bills. One of Josh Allen’s former protectors is adding insult to injury after the Buffalo Bills dropped a heartbreaker to the New York Jets. The Bills went into the November 6 game against the Jets as heavy favorites, even though they were traveling to the Meadowlands to face their divisional rival on the road. The team had spent the week poking fun at the Jets’ geographical location and declaring the Bills the only “true” team in New York, and after a 20-17 they got a taste of their own medicine from their former player.Former Bills Lineman Trolls Team, FansAfter the loss — Buffalo’s second of the season and second to a divisional opponent — former Bills tackle Jon Feliciano took to Twitter to needle the team over their insistence that the Jets were not a New York team. “The Real NY,” he tweeted, adding a pair of eye emoji. Feliciano added a follow-up tweet clarifying that he was “just trolling,” pointing out how the Bills had emphasized...
    Getty Images Giants head coach Brian Daboll looks on prior to a 2022 game. Brian Daboll is well beyond proving that Josh Allen was responsible for his success. The former Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator took over a New York Giants team with a significantly less talented roster and some major question marks on offense, but has been able to lead them to a 6-1 record. Daboll’s fast start not only has the Giants in the thick of contention for a competitive NFC East, but is earning himself some buzz as a Coach of the Year candidate.Daboll Praise for Hot StartThe Giants held on for a 23-17 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, stopping Jacksonville receiver Christian Kirk at the 1-yard line on the game’s final play to seal the victory. The win brought the Giants to 6-1, just behind the undefeated Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC East. NFL writer Bob Glaubner wrote that Daboll’s performance has him in consideration for NFL Coach of the Year. “The 6-1 Giants may not have the most talented team in the...
    Getty Aaron Rodgers #12 of the Green Bay Packers looks ahead to Week 8 against the Buffalo Bills. While Buffalo Bills (5-1) enjoyed their bye week in Week 7, their upcoming opponent, the Green Bay Packers (3-4), lost to one of the worst teams in the league, the Washington Commanders (3-4). The Packers haven’t had a losing record since 2018, per Bleacher Report, and while it seems like their season is slipping away, quarterback Aaron Rodgers believes losing to the Commanders will actually help the team defeat the Bills at Highmark Stadium in Week 8. “You’re goddamn right it does,” Rodgers, 38, said when asked if the Packers can turn things around, per ESPN‘s Rob Demovksy. “I’m not worried about this squad. In fact, this might be the best thing for us. This week, nobody’s going to give us a chance, going to Buffalo on Sunday Night Football, with a chance to get exposed. Shoot, this might be the best thing for us.” Aaron Rodgers after the last play of the Packers-Commanders game. pic.twitter.com/e9atAQ4LXE — FOX Sports: NFL...
    Buffalo Bills doctors reportedly gave safety Jordan Poyer permission to play with a collapsed lung on Sunday in Kansas City, but didn't clear him to fly, citing concern that cabin pressure might exacerbate the injury. As a result, ESPN reports, the 31-year-old All-Pro traveled by van from Western New York to Kansas City: a 15-hour journey of nearly 1,000 miles. The van was arranged by the Bills to take Poyer and his family to and from Sunday's game – a dramatic 24-20 win over the rival Chiefs.

    The Kansas City Chiefs and Buffalo Bills are becoming an annual rite, and the games are defining a generation of NFL football. Every era has its rivalry. In the 1970s, it was the Oakland Raiders and Pittsburgh Steelers. The ’90s had the Dallas Cowboys and San Francisco 49ers. The ’00s saw Peyton Manning and Tom Brady turn games between the Indianapolis Colts and New England Patriots into must-see TV. The current generation found its rivalry on Jan. 23, 2022. That night, the Kansas City Chiefs and Buffalo Bills played what is arguably the greatest football game of all time. It will forever be boiled down to and known as 13 Seconds, but the other 64 minutes and two seconds played that evening meant every bit as much. For a true rivalry to emerge, both teams must be capable of beating the other. There also must be an iconic moment, an indelible image, a marquee matchup which captures the imagination. Buffalo and Kansas City checked all boxes in one clash, setting up the next decade. This Sunday, the Bills and Chiefs...
    The Ravens went up 20-3 with 3:39 to go in the first half against the Buffalo Bills. They did not score the rest of the way as they let another game slip away in front of their home fans. They did not capitalize on opportunities to widen their margin and for the second time in three weeks, their defense did not hold with the game on the line. Here are five things we learned from the Ravens’ 23-20 loss to Buffalo in Week 4: The Ravens were a frustrated, confused team after they blew another lead at home. Marcus Peters screamed at John Harbaugh and slammed his helmet to the grass as the last seconds of another home defeat ebbed away. The Ravens had unraveled gradually over the previous two quarters and more brazenly over the previous few minutes. Harbaugh went for a touchdown on fourth-and-goal from the 2 instead of asking Justin Tucker to kick a go-ahead 19-yard field goal with 4:15 left in the game. Wide receiver Devin Duvernay streaked open in the right corner of the end...
    The mistake made by Miami Dolphins punter Thomas Morstead was a funny accident to most of the world - that is, most of the world outside the Dolphins locker room. With the team backed into his own end zone, in the dying stages of a tight game against the Bills, leading 21-17, Morstead had very little room to execute a punt to push Buffalo back with a chance for them to win the game. Instead, Morstead couldn't find enough clearance between himself and the offensive line and punted the ball into the backside of special teamer Trent Sherfield. The punt went off Sherfield and out of bounds for a safety. While Miami hung on for the win, the 'Butt Punt' was the main talking point stemming from the game. Dolphins special teams coach Danny Crossman isn't happy about that.

    Following Buffalo's 21-19 defeat to the Miami Dolphins, Bills offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey went into a total meltdown. The moment was caught on the camera in the Bills booth and, of course, went viral on social media. As the game clock struck zero, Dorsey was seen slamming his headset and throwing every play sheet and notebook within arms reach.  Dorsey is in his first year as Bills offensive coordinator following Brian Daboll departing the position to become head coach of the New York Giants. #Bills OC Ken Dorsey LOST IT in the coaching booth.

    Here are some takeaways from the Miami Dolphins’ incredible win over the Buffalo Bills at Hard Rock Stadium: You gotta play it ‘til the end With the Dolphins leading, 21-17, punter Thomas Morstead booted a punt from his own end zone into the backside of teammate Trent Sherfield, cutting the Dolphins’ lead to 21-19 with 1:33 left. Morstead helped save the day with his free kick that traveled to the Buffalo 6-yard line and was returned to the Bills’ 23-yard line. Buffalo needed a game-winning field goal and the Dolphins’ defense held. — Chris Perkins Dolphins playoff chances now 76% The Dolphins, according to the NFL, have a 76% chance of making the playoffs with a 3-0 start in a 17-game season. The Dolphins, of course, started 3-0 in 2013 and 2018 and missed the playoffs, but this 3-0 start has a different feel. Not only are expectations higher, the team is better and better-equipped to deal with changing expectations. The Dolphins have a tough game ahead at Cincinnati on Thursday, but if you’re keeping track of tiebreakers the Dolphins...
    Pull up a chair and sit on the edge of it, folks. This one could be worth the wait — and, thanks to everyone from Cam Cameron to Steve Ross, it’s been quite a wait. The Miami Dolphins play the Buffalo Bills on Sunday in either the biggest game of the NFL weekend or the biggest game at Hard Rock Stadium since it was called Dolphin Stadium three name changes ago. Take your pick for how big this game is. And round up the kids while you’re deciding. It’s time this next generation knew. This is what Dolphins weekend once were always about, if you can remember back to yesteryear when Dan Marino was a player and not a consultant or the 1970s was an era and not a sit-com. Big games. Big rivals. Big hoo-hahs. Big consequences, too. The horse is admittedly ahead of the cart of consequence. It’s just Game 3 in, as linebacker Jerome Baker says, “a marathon of a season” — though the marathon is a sprint if you’ve watched the Dolphins run. But there’s been...
    Here’s a look at how the Miami Dolphins (2-0) and Buffalo Bills (2-0) match up in six key areas ahead of Sunday’s Week 3 game at Hard Rock Stadium (1 p.m., CBS): When the Dolphins run: Miami got its ground game going a little bit for 4.8 yards per carry in last Sunday’s 42-38 win over the Baltimore Ravens. It just didn’t splash more because there were limited opportunities playing from behind most of the afternoon — not to mention the Ravens ate up 11 minutes on one first-half drive they didn’t even score on. In Week 1, it was Chase Edmonds that got the bulk of the carries against New England. Against Baltimore, it was Raheem Mostert. Who is favored in the workload will depend on matchups coaches find advantageous. Right tackle Greg Little, who will be filling in for Austin Jackson (ankle), had a great block on Edmonds’ late 28-yard run that set Miami up for the winning score vs. the Ravens. Buffalo, however, to no one’s surprise, is the league’s top-ranked run defense through two weeks, and...

    Since when is nudity a pillar of gay culture? Rockaway Park: It was a beautiful, sunny day in Rockaway. The waves were extraordinary and many surfers were out, including many young teenagers who were surfing the waves under their parents’ watch. As it happens, you start out surfing on the east side of the jetty on Beach 149th St. and end up on the west side of the jetty due to the current. This is where respect for each other comes in. A woman was sunbathing completely nude near the jetty where everyone had to exit the surf and climb back to the eastern side of the jetty to catch more waves. A parent told her to put her bottom on and her response was, “F— you.” The U.S. Park Police were called and responded and the officer, using great diplomacy, asked her to don her bottom and she complied after a lengthy diatribe concerning her rights. At this point, a gentleman came over and explained to us that this was a gay beach (duh — I lived on...
    To paraphrase a well-worn line: We are ready for some football. And with the official kickoff of the 2022-23 season of National Football League just a day away – football fans have good reason to expect a wild ride. I can predict some shocking surprises this season – including one of football’s greatest players falling back to Earth (for good), a few struggling stars finally realizing their potentials and arguably the most tortured franchise in the history of the game going to the Super Bowl and winning it all. Ready, set, hike… The start of the football season is almost here - but who will go on to win the Super Bowl?  THE GOAT's LAST GOTom Brady, the 45-year-old quarterback of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, is entering his 23rd season.

    Buffalo Bills coach Sean McDermott said he has learnt fresh details of the gang-rape allegations leveled at Matt Araiza in the last 24 hours after leaving him out of the team that played Carolina Panthers on Friday night. McDermott faced the media after his team was beaten 21-0 in a preseason game overshadowed by allegations that emerged on Thursday that Araiza gang-raped a 17-year-old in an off-campus party at San Diego State in 2021. Coach McDermott said Araiza would travel back with the team after Friday's game but refused to comment on any involvement he would have beyond that.  'I would say there has been some (new detail in the last 24 hours), I'm not going to deny that and that's why I have more work to do on this,' McDermott said. 'I'm trying to be solution oriented right now. 'It was my decision (for him not to play). I didn't feel it was right. I made the decision at some point today, I felt it was the right thing to do and that's what we are after.  'It's not...
    Getty Von Miller during warmups with Bills fans. Even though Von Miller doesn’t play for the Denver Broncos anymore, he’s still a diehard fan of the orange and blue no matter what. Before the Buffalo Bills hosted Denver for their second game of the preseason, Miller spent most of pregame greeting his former teammates. You can see the video here on his Instagram. Miller was seen giving hugs to Denver wide receiver Courtland Sutton, Bradley Chubb, and his best friend, kicker Brandon McManus. Even Dalton Risner chatted with the two-time Super Bowl champion calling him, “big brother.” Garett Bolles also remembered the duo’s secret handshake that they performed at midfield. After the game, Miller shook hands with newly acquired Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson. Miller told Wilson that he’s, “In a good spot over there.” It’s clear the former Super Bowl 50 MVP has a soft spot in his heart for Broncos Country and continues to cheer for his former team. “I can’t say enough about that team man. They got a great quarterback, great head coach now and...
    Buffalo Bills tight end Dawson Knox thanked fans for their support after the death of his brother, Florida International University football player Luke Knox, as the NFL team held a moment silence Saturday.  The 22-year-old died suddenly and school officials and Bills head coach Sean McDermott confirmed the passing on Thursday. A specific cause of death has not been revealed, but police do not suspect foul play. A moment silence was held in Buffalo Saturday ahead of the Bills game against the Denver Broncos.  Dawson Knox was absent from the game as he was with his family for the services on Saturday and will be away from the team indefinitely. He broke his silence on his brother's death Friday night as he took to social media to thank people for their support.  'Thank you all for the outpouring of love and support for my family. Our hearts are broken but we know Luke is in a much better place now with his savior Jesus,' Dawson wrote.  Buffalo Bills tight end Dawson Knox thanked fans for their support after the death...
    Getty Josh Allen #17 of the Buffalo Bills prepares to take the field prior to a game against the New York Jets at Highmark Stadium on January 09, 2022 in Orchard Park, New York.

    Getty Josh Allen and Matt Barkley warm up before a Buffalo Bills game. Four years ago, Matt Barkley came to the Buffalo Bills as a midseason acquisition to provide some emergency relief after a spate of injuries and serve as a mentor to the team’s raw rookie quarterback. Now, Barkley is back with the Bills in what promises to be a more behind-the-scenes role and explains the tremendous growth he’s seen in his former protege.

It’s well-known that Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen is a dual-threat talent destined for greatness, however, and after his appearance at the 2022 NFL Honors, the 25-year-old made it clear his talents also include comedic timing.

    PEBBLE BEACH – Outside of the confines of Buffalo and perhaps his hometown of Firebaugh in the San Joaquin Valley, Josh Allen can still stroll around without being recognized. A chiseled golfer with movie star looks, though, does at least create curiosity on the golf links, punctuated with 300-yard drives. Allen, who is taking part this weekend in the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am for the first time, has evolved into one of the premier quarterbacks in the NFL. Yet, only a few fans seem to recognize the 25-year-old on the greens. “Bills Mafia travels,” predicted Allen. This isn’t his first trip to Pebble Beach. Three years ago, Allen was a guest of the U.S. Open as a sidekick to 49ers legend Joe Montana.

    As the Kansas City Chiefs and the Buffalo Bills were playing in their epic game Sunday night, it was hard to imagine how the Ravens could compete with either of those teams or the Cincinnati Bengals. The conclusion was simple: They couldn’t. If the Ravens had made the playoffs, they would have been a one-and-done reject like the Pittsburgh Steelers, who were blown out by the Chiefs in the wild-card round. Among other things, the Bengals, Chiefs and Bills played at a faster pace with much more intensity and speed than the Ravens. To me, that shows Baltimore might be in for a bit of a rebuild, and general manager Eric DeCosta must have a good offseason in free agency and April’s NFL draft. The Ravens have few players who could have started on the defensive front sevens of Buffalo, Kansas City and Cincinnati, and they certainly couldn’t match the speed, play-making ability or offensive schemes of those teams. Baltimore lost its final six games of the 2021 regular season — five of those by eight combined...

    (CNN)Did we just watch one of the best games in NFL history?We definitely saw two great next generation quarterbacks on display at Arrowhead Stadium as Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes and Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen put on an absolute clinic on Sunday night in an epic AFC divisional round clash in the NFL playoffs. Mahomes threw a walk-off touchdown to Travis Kelce in overtime as the Chiefs finally beat the Bills 42-36 after an all-time encounter which saw twists and turns throughout. The game culminated in a wild ending, which saw an extraordinary 25 points scored in the final 1:54 of regulation time.

    MIAMI (CBSMiami) – The NFL playoffs continue with spots in the championship games on the line.

    If the Chicago Bears were intent on doing comprehensive research for their simultaneous searches for a new head coach and general manager, perhaps their Saturday night homework should have ended with a peek into the interview rooms at Highmark Stadium in Orchard Park, N.Y. Start with Bill Belichick. Legendary coach of the New England Patriots. Defensive mastermind. Six-time Super Bowl winner. Yet as his night came to a close, Belichick was humbled, conquered, obviously frustrated. His top-five defense had been slaughtered by the Buffalo Bills, smashed to pieces like a rotten pumpkin in a 47-17 loss in the wild-card round of the AFC playoffs. “We just couldn’t keep up with them tonight,” Belichick said. “They certainly deserved to win. Well-coached. They executed well and we just couldn’t do much of anything.” Belichick’s blank expression and curt, monotone delivery were hardly new. He often responds this way even after impressive triumphs. But the level of his humiliation was certainly rare. Belichick’s previous 11 postseason losses with the Patriots came by an average of nine points. On Saturday,...

    Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills erased any doubt of who now rules the AFC East. Allen set a team playoff record with five touchdown passes, including two to Dawson Knox, and Devin Singletary ran for two scores in the first half of a 47-17 throttling of the division rival New England Patriots in a wild-card playoff game Saturday night. Allen finished 21 of 25 for 308 yards in a game the Bills scored on each of their seven possessions that didn’t end with a kneeldown. “That sounds like some Pop Warner stuff,” defensive tackle Harrison Phillips said. Added Allen: “We had guys coming out here, we were ready to play. Good week of practice. Lot of preparation went into this one.” The Bills beat the Patriots for a second time in three weeks and rebounded from an embarrassing 14-10 loss at home on Dec. 6 in which the Patriots attempted just three passes while finishing with 222 yards rushing to counter the blustery conditions. And don’t think for a moment Bills defensive end Jerry Hughes forgot. He recalled how...
    BOSTON (CBS) — Saturday night’s bitterly cold temperatures led many Patriots fans to chance the way they watched the game. Patriots Place saw fewer fans than normal for away games. Bars and restaurants had plenty of room to hold those who bundled up to watch near Gillette. Despite the brutally cold wind chills, some fans made the trip west to Buffalo. Temperature at kickoff was in the single digits. Nancy Leary of Ashland and her friend Pam Teibel said they did not hesitate to purchase tickets to Saturday’s playoff game. The two buying their seats for roughly $50 apiece. “We don’t care about the temperatures,” said Leary. “Everyone thinks we are crazy. I am a skier. I have all my ski stuff. I will show you everything behind me that I have. We are fans. We want to be there. We want to go through the tailgate like we did in Miami and be a part of this experience.” Leary and Teibel packed everything from ski pants, to snow boots. They planned for the worst. “You never know if it...
    ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — There’s no “Brrrrrrr” in Bills Mafia. Amid the warm orange glow of Bunsen burners lightning up the parking lots surrounding Highmark Stadium, frigid, single-digit temperatures didn’t prevent Buffalo Bills fans from throwing a party in the hours before the team’s wild-card playoff game against the New England Patriots on Saturday night. “This is like the Bahamas right now because there’s no wind,” said long-time season-ticket holder Rick Ribaulo, who’s been attending Bills games since the mid-1970s. “It’s family, it’s community and it’s kind of a rite of passage if you’re from Buffalo.” While the Bills-owned parking lots didn’t open until 4:15 p.m., many of the private-owned lots were already filling up at 3 p.m. for what could become one of the team’s coldest home games in franchise history. Fans, wearing four and five layers of clothes, came prepared, unloading their vehicles with cases of beer, bratwursts, grills, kerosene heaters and anything else to take the chill off. Some, such as Quincy McFadden, erected tents with two heat lamps which made the temperature inside feel...
    Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen said Tuesday he’s struggling with circulation issues in his feet, so former NFL linebacker Bart Scott had interesting advice for him ahead of the team’s game against the New England Patriots Sunday night. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen warms up prior to a game against the New England Patriots at Highmark Stadium Dec 6, 2021. (Rich Barnes/USA TODAY Sports) "Take some Viagra before the game, baby," Scott suggested Thursday during ESPN's show "Get Up," via TMZ Sports. "That'll get that circulation going right." Scott, a Pro Bowler in 2006 who played for the Baltimore Ravens and New York Jets over 11 years, played in his share of cold-weather games, so he was offering advice that may actually work.

    1. PRESSURE JOSH ALLEN When Josh Allen is pressured, he turns into a pumpkin. Under pressure, he completes just 44% of his passes (with seven INTs) and has a passer rating of 57. If you don’t pressure him, well, good luck (28 TDs vs. 8 picks, a 70% completion percentage and a passer rating of 103). It’s not something this Gang Green team does well (third worst in the NFL with pressure on just 22% of drop backs), but that’s the task on Sunday. 2. RUN THE ROCK The Jets are facing the best pass defense in the NFL as the Bills are holding opponents to 172 passing yards per game. So if Jets offensive Mike LaFleur gets pass happy, the NFL needs to drug test him. Rely on the run game that’s produced 423 yards in the last two games. The Jets get lead rusher Michael Carter back from the concussion protocol, too. So no excuses. 3. STOP THE RUN The last time the Jets played the Bills, they allowed 139 yards on the ground and...
    Buffalo Bills safety Jordan Poyer was elated after the team’s 33-21 victory over the New England Patriots on Sunday after losing to them about three weeks ago in icy conditions. Poyer’s first reaction wasn’t about beating the Patriots. It was about shoving the win into sports columnist Jerry Sullivan’s face.

Poyer had three tackles and a tackle for a loss in the win. Sullivan saw the tweet and reminded his followers he doesn’t travel for Bills road games. "I guess he hasn't noticed that I haven't covered a road game since 2017. Bruce Smith did the same thing once. I've been called out by Hall of Famers....
    BOSTON (CBS) — Tom Brady may have left New England last year, but he’s still good to help out his old Patriots pals when needed. Brady needed a little extra time but nevertheless did exactly that on Sunday by helping to lead the Buccaneers over the Bills, 33-27, in Tampa. Though the game went to overtime after a blown Tampa lead, it ended in the usual fashion: Tom Brady beating the Buffalo Bills in a football game. It’s a tale as old as time itself. The win improved Brady to a ridiculous 33-3 in his career when facing the Bills. Brady already owned the record for most wins by a quarterback against any one opponent, but he now has his first vs. Buffalo as a member of the Buccaneers. The first 32 wins vs. Buffalo obviously came during his two decades with the Patriots. (Brady also owns the No. 2 spot on that list with his 29 wins vs. the Jets.) For the Bills, this one hurt doubly. For one, they dropped to 7-6 on the season. That gives the...
    Getty Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady (L) is laser-focused on beating the Josh Allen (R) and the Buffalo Bills in Week 14. The Buffalo Bills are desperate for a big win after their devastating 14-10 loss to the New England Patriots on Monday Night Football. Unfortunately for the Bills, they face yet another tough opponent in Week 14, the Tamp Bay Buccaneers. “We definitely have to continue to make adjustments and improve some of the things that we’re doing,” Bills head coach Sean McDermott said looking ahead to Sunday’s game. “But the season’s still out there for us right now and we’ve got a big test, a big challenge this week going down to Tampa.” ALL the latest Bills news straight to your inbox! Join the Heavy on Bills newsletter here! Join Heavy on Bills! Mirroring McDermott’s comments, Tampa Bay’s star quarterback Tom Brady.

    By Michael Hurley, CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — It’s December. The season is long. It’s even longer this year. It’ll probably get longer in future years. In that spirit … maybe the NFL doesn’t produce an A1 story every single week. Maybe there are some down weeks. And maybe this is one of those weeks. Normally, this space before the picks addresses something major going on in the league. Not this week. This week, we’re going straight to the picks. We could sit here and speculate on coach firings, but that’s no way to spend the holiday season. We’re just doing picks. So here you go. PICKS. (Home team in CAPS; Wednesday lines) MINNESOTA (-3) over Pittsburgh This matchup is awful. I hate it. I’ll watch every second … but I will not be happy about it. And I will be reading tweets throughout! Take that, NFL. Baltimore (+2.5) over CLEVELAND What a strange setup. The Browns lost to the Ravens, hit their bye week, and now … play the Ravens again. Feels like an advantage for the Browns, whose coaching staff simply never...
    New England Patriots center David Andrews was not phased by the snow in Orchard Park ahead of the team’s game against the Buffalo Bills on Monday night. The New England Patriots have the opportunity to hold the best record in the AFC on Monday night. They can do so with a win over the Buffalo Bills in snowy and windy Orchard Park, NY. With some players warming up prior to the game, both from a game perspective and keeping warm in general by wearing layers, center David Andrews played some mind games. Andrews walked onto the field wearing a sleeveless shirt and shorts.

    BOSTON (CBS) — The Patriots have won six straight games, turning their season around and getting themselves smack dab in the middle of the fight for the top seed in the AFC. It’s been an improbable run, and it has the team and the fans rather excited. But all of those positive vibes can come crashing down if the Patriots take the field Monday night in Orchard Park and get soundly beaten by the Bills. That’s kind of how life works in the NFL. With that in mind, it feels safe to say this is the biggest game of the year for both teams. In the Patriots’ case, a win in Buffalo will create a slight cushion in the AFC East while building tremendous amounts of confidence within the locker room as New England heads into the bye. For the Bills, a win will satisfy the psychotic energy from the 71,000 crazed Bills fans packing Highmark Stadium (when did they start calling it that?) on what’s sure to be a frigid Monday evening. It will also vault the Bills back into...
    This week, Between the Hashmarks looks at how the Buffalo Bills have gone from September Super Bowl hopefuls to a crossroads, the underrated players insiders are watching, plus the Jason Garrett era ending in New York, and more. September was a storybook for the Buffalo Bills, who looked like the most complete team in the league less than two months ago but have since devolved into the NFL’s biggest Jekyll and Hyde tale. Former MVP frontrunner, Bills quarterback Josh Allen has thrown five interceptions over the past three weeks, seemingly regressing to his 2019 form after tossing only three picks in the Bills’ five prior games. Since walking out of Arrowhead 4-1 following a 38-20 victory over the Chiefs that seemingly signaled a changing of the guard in the AFC, as the Bills conquered their 10,000-pound silverback ape after falling in the same venue in January’s AFC Championship Game, the wheels came off Buffalo’s wagons. “The Titans’ defense gave a blueprint now two years in a row to stopping Josh Allen,” an AFC South scout tells FanSided, on the condition...
    The Latest from Week 10 of the NFL (all times EST): — 11 a.m. The Buffalo Bills placed defensive tackle Star Lotulelei on the reserve/COVID-19 list a few hours before kickoff of the team’s game against the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium. Defensive tackle Brandin Bryant was elevated from the practice squad to take Lotulelei’s place for the game. Lotulelei has two sacks and 14 tackles in seven games, all starts, this season for the Bills. The 31-year-old Lotulelei opted out last season because of concerns about the pandemic. He was placed in COVID-19 protocols during training camp after he was deemed to be a close contact, and was activated on Aug. 27. Bryant, who joined Buffalo’s practice squad last year, hasn’t played in a regular-season NFL game since 2019 with Cleveland. He was signed by Seattle as an undrafted free agent out of Florida Atlantic in 2016, and has also spent time with the Jets and Miami Dolphins as well as Winnipeg and Montreal of the Canadian Football League. — Dennis Waszak Jr. reporting from East Rutherford,...
