    With Pat McAfee as a guest on the ManningCast, Peyton and Eli Manning asked for a break down of the Butt Punt in the Miami Dolphins-Buffalo Bills game. One of the wildest games of Week 3 was between the Miami Dolphins and Buffalo Bills. Not only because of the Dolphins hanging on to defeat the Bills 21-19, but for the now famous Butt Punt. Thomas Morstead attempted to punt the ball out of end zone, but it hit his blocker, Trent Schefield, right in the butt. It fell out of bounds in the back of the end zone, falling for a safety. On Monday night, the ManningCast was on for the New York Giants-Dallas Cowboys game, but Peyton and Eli Manning asked guest and former NFL punter Pat McAfee to break down the Butt Punt.

    NFL FANS were left in hysterics when Buffalo Bills chief Ken Dorsey had an epic meltdown after his side lost to the Miami Dolphins. The previously undefeated Bills went down 21-19 to the Dolphins on Sunday afternoon. 3Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey lost the plot after his side were beaten in MiamiCredit: CBS 3Dorsey slammed his iPad down on the desk in a fit of rageCredit: CBS 3Dorsey was made offensive coordinator earlier this year after Brian Daboll left for the New York GiantsCredit: Reuters And offensive coordinator Dorsey completely lost the plot at the end of the game. Watching from the coaches box, Dorsey went mad as star quarterback Josh Allen failed to snap the ball in time for one last play as the game clock ticked down to zero. Bills wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie took too long going to ground in the previous play, meaning Allen did not have enough time to start a new one and the Bills lost the game. It caused Dorsey to flip out and throw his headset onto the desk as he...
    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.

    The Miami Dolphins pulled off a thrilling 21-19 victory in an AFC East showdown with Buffalo.  Josh Allen and the Bills had an opportunity to win after a butt punt put the Bills within two, needing just a field goal to win.  Buffalo couldn't get the ball spiked in time and resultantly fell to 2-1. Meanwhile, Miami moved to 3-0.  Indianapolis, who did not have a win thus far in 2022, defeated Kansas City 20-17 in a shocker at Lucas Oil Stadium.  Tua Tagovailoa came back from what looked to initially be a concussion to help Miami go 3-0 Joe Burrow and the Bengals got their first win of the season of an offensively handicapped Jets Lamar Jackson had five touchdowns (four passing, one rushing) in the Ravens' 37-26 victory Elsewhere in the AFC, Baltimore took care of a spirited New England 37-26 at Foxborough.  Cincinnati disposed of a error-riddled New York Jets to win their first game. Tennessee also climbed to 1-2, while their opponent, Las Vegas, are winless through three.  Minnesota completed a comeback to win 28-24 at...
    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...
    It will be a startling sight on Saturday, as one of Fort Lauderdale’s most historic and important shrines, the city’s cathedral of the cocktail, its basilica of Bud, the beloved Elbo Room, is overwhelmed by thousands of New York football zealots. They will plant their flag, hoist their banners, and stake their claim to the iconic beachfront corner of Las Olas Boulevard and A1A, turning it into an unpartable blue sea. Somewhere, Saint Connie of Francis may shed a tear. But, wait, these aren’t hordes of showboating Jets fans stuffed into s-medium Mark Gastineau T-shirts — they’re Buffalo Bills fans, and it turns out they’re … nice. “My bartenders like them,” Elbo Room owner Michele Penrod says. “They say they’re good tippers, well-behaved. There’s never a problem. They’ve been great.” Well, that’s no way to start a rivalry. Beginning at noon on Saturday, Buffalo’s local fan organization, Bills Backers Miami, plan to have its annual Elbo Room takeover to welcome the team to town for their 1 p.m. Sunday game against the Miami Dolphins at Hard Rock Stadium. Both teams...

    Buffalo Bills cornerback Dane Jackson is reportedly already at home recovering after walking out hospital Monday night following a sickening collision. Jackson's head and neck bent back in a scary collision with a teammate during the Bills' 41-7 victory over Tennessee Titans.   But he had already arrived home Tuesday after being released from hospital, even walking out himself, according to Mike Garafolo.  Speaking on the NFL Network, Garafolo said: 'Dane Jackson I am told, already home. He has been released from the hospital. In fact, he walked out of the hospital. And all indications are that he has avoided a major injury.  'Sean McDermott will speak to the media later this afternoon but that update I just received, excellent, excellent news for Dane Jackson.' The Bills confirmed Jackson had been released from hospital in a statement on Tuesday morning.  Buffalo tweeted: 'Dane Jackson was transported last night to ECMC and underwent various tests which determined there was no major injury to his neck or spinal cord.  'He was released from the hospital and is undergoing further evaluation.' Following the worrying collision, an...
    Stefon Diggs isn’t getting his hopes up just yet despite an incredible start to the Buffalo Bills 2022 season. Stefon Diggs has been disappointed before. He took a loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in 2021 as motivation, opting to stay on the field and observe the Chiefs’ celebration rather than sulking in the locker room. That moment serves as motivation and an aim in what he wants for the Buffalo Bills. Two games into this season and most Bills fans are probably ready to claim themselves the favorites in the AFC, despite how strong the conference is. Diggs, though? He knows there’s work to be done. He’s not buying into the hype just yet: "Were doing OK, I guess." – Stefon Diggs on the Bills — katherine fitzgerald (@kfitz134) September 20, 2022 Bills are off to a hot start but still have work to do The Bills have won convincingly in their first two games of the season.

    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...
    Getty Linebacker Von Miller #40 of the Buffalo Bills walks on the field before the NFL game against the Los Angeles Rams at SoFi Stadium on September 08, 2022 in Inglewood, California. During the Buffalo Bills‘ impressive 31-10 victory over the Los Angeles Rams on Thursday Night Football, linebacker Von Miller made a statement on the field, recording two quarterback hits and a pair of sacks, however, his haircut seemed to garner even more attention than his stellar performance. While walking to the sidelines, Miller removed his helmet, revealing a triangle patch of hair on the back of his bald head. A photo of the eight-time Pro Bowler’s haircut instantly went viral on Twitter, as viewers tried to figure out the inspiration for the incredibly unique look. One man tweeted, “Some explain to me Von Miller’s hair cut please,” while Sports Spectrum podcast producer Cole Douglas Clarbourn wrote, “Von Miller’s hair is awful.” A woman tweeted, “What the F*** did von miller do to his hair?” Von Miller's new look for the season-opener ???? @brgridiron pic.twitter.com/bJAOuyTD7y — Bleacher...
    (CNN)It's easy to overreact to the first game of the NFL season. That's especially the case if you're a fan of the Buffalo Bills, who crushed the defending champion Los Angeles Rams 31-10 in front of a national television audience on Thursday night. And unlike any season that this writer can recall, the Bills are -- by many estimates -- one of the favorites to win it all. Last night's performance was so dominant that Buffalo may have increased its odds of bringing home the Super Bowl by over 50%.Still, we should be clear what "favored" means at this early stage in the season: bringing home the Vince Lombardi Trophy at the end of the year is not too likely -- much to my chagrin. But even if the Bills don't ultimately take home the ultimate prize, it's evident that they're picking up fans thanks to their newfound success. Take a look at FiveThirtyEight's Elo ratings, for example, to understand the odds. The Bills entered the night with a 10% chance of winning the Super Bowl; they left the night...
    A protester tried her best to steal the show during the Buffalo Bills' obliteration of the Los Angeles Rams in the NFL season opener Thursday night. Around halfway through the fourth quarter a woman ran onto the field with a pink flare, causing the game to be stopped for several minutes. The fan was tackled by security at the 30 yard line as she neared the Bills defense. Upon being tackled the fan dropped the flare, which Buffalo safety Micah Hyde then picked up and threw as far off the field as possible.

    The Buffalo Bills may have pounded the Los Angeles Rams, 31-10, in Thursday's NFL opener, but in the streets surrounding SoFi Stadium, things were considerably more competitive. Former NFL linebacker Emmanuel Acho posted video on Twitter showing Rams and Bills fans exchanging punches after the game.

    BILLS at RAMS 8:20 p.m., Bills by 2 ½, 53 ½ HANK’S HONEYS: It’s not often that a defending Super Bowl champ has found itself a Week 1 underdog. It’s happened only three times since 2000. In 2003, the Bucs were three-point dogs at Philly and covered. In 2013, the Ravens, having lost eight starters from their championship team, were eight-point dogs and blown away by the Broncos. In 2016, the Broncos covered as three-point dogs vs. Carolina. Notably, though, only the Peyton Manning-less Broncos were playing at home. Since 2000, all defending champs are 14-7-1 against the spread in openers. The Rams were 3-0 straight up and ATS as an underdog last season and 7-3 SU and ATS in those roles since 2020. Motivation is thought to be on the visitors’ side. While the Rams try to shake off a Super Bowl hangover, the Bills know they could have been playing against the Rams in February. It’s the perfect statement game and it’s why the public has been heaping tickets on Buffalo, the presumptive Super Bowl favorite, all...
    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.

    Here’s how the South Florida Sun Sentinel thinks the Miami Dolphins will fare in the 2022 season — which opens Sunday against the New England Patriots at Hard Rock Stadium (1 p.m.) — and who our staff is picking to play in the Super Bowl: Dave Hyde, Sports Columnist Dolphins prediction: 9-8 They have speed in the right places on offense as Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle are their most dynamic receivers since Mark Duper and Mark Clayton. They added a foundational piece to the line in tackle Terron Armstead. The defense will be a year more developed, too, but face some of the league’s best quarterbacks as opposed to the last half of last season. Depth and uncertain offensive line questions are still out there. Better? Definitely. A contending team? November will tell us. Super Bowl prediction: Buffalo vs. Los Angeles Rams The Bills were 13 botched seconds from the AFC Championship Game last year and so get the motivational gear to make it this year. It’s a stacked AFC, though, as Baltimore won’t be hurt like last year,...
    Getty Zack Moss runs the ball in a game against the Kansas City Chiefs. The Buffalo Bills could be exploring the trade market for running back Zack Moss, a new report indicates. After a sophomore season marked by injury and some inconsistent play, Moss returned to training camp at full health and back to his rookie form. He played with Buffalo’s first-team offense through most of training camp, signaling that the coaching staff still has plenty of faith in him despite a dropoff in his second year.

    The parents of axed Buffalo Bills kicker Matt Araiza have issued a ferocious statement defending their son amid allegations he was involved in the gang rape of a 17-year-old girl last year. The 22-year-old punter was released by the Super Bowl favorite Bills on Saturday, and his career is in tatters as he awaits more news on the civil lawsuit filed last Thursday. Amid the backlash, Araiza's parents have now released a statement of their own to the media, revealing death threats sent to their entire family, and reiterating that their son should be 'innocent until proven guilty'. As reported by KUSI-TV, the statement reads: 'The rule of law is innocent until proven guilty. That is not our experience. There has been a war waged against our son. 'He has been tried and convicted in the media based on information released solely from the alleged victim and her attorney, much of it through social media. People have taken his information as factual, when it is not.' NFL player Matt Araiza has been released by Buffalo Bills after being accused of gang rape...
    Two NFL teams were aware Matt Araiza had been involved in an incident in the lead-up to the NFL draft in April. That's according to the Associated Press, who say executives from two different NFL teams knew of something concerning the 22-year-old but did not know the extent of the allegations. The Buffalo Bills, however, knew nothing and signed Araiza in the sixth round of the draft. They released him on Saturday, days after it emerged he has been accused of being involved in the gang rape of a 17-year-old last year, alongside two of his then team-mates at San Diego State. The Bills did know Araiza was subject of a police investigation, however, when they released Matt Haack - Araiza's rival for the punter role in the team - on Monday. The victim's lawyer, Dan Gilleon, claimed the Bills ignored concerns he raised about Araiza when contacting the team in late July. 'The Buffalo Bills had no choice but to cut their young punter after so badly botching their response to our claim,' Gilleon said in a statement carried...

    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.

    A civil lawsuit filed on Thursday in California accuses 22-year old Buffalo Bills punter Matt Araiza of gang rape, while he was at San Diego State. The incident reportedly occurred at an off-campus party with the victim being a minor who claims she went into and out of consciousness during the events. Araiza was named in the lawsuit alongside two other San Diego State football players. Araiza's lawyer, Kerry Armstrong, denied his client's involvement in the incident saying: 'It's a shakedown because he's now with the Buffalo Bills. There is no doubt in my mind that Matt Araiza ever raped that girl.' The other two individuals named in the suit are Zavier Leonard and Nowlin 'Pa'a' Ewaliko.  According to the Los Angeles Times, an investigation conducted by the paper found SDSU decided not to inform the campus community about the alleged incident - choosing also to wait over seven months to launch its own investigation.

    Luke Knox, a Florida International football player and younger brother of Buffalo Bills star Dawson Knox, has died suddenly at 22. School officials and Bills head coach Sean McDermott have confirmed the passing. A specific cause of death has not been revealed, but police do not suspect foul play.  'Our hearts go out to Dawson and his family during this time,' McDermott told reporters at Bills training camp at St. John Fisher in Pittsford, New York. 'We're right there with him and supporting him and his family -- and just tragic news that I woke up to this morning.' Luke originally enrolled at Ole Miss as a linebacker and tight end, but had since transferred to FIU, where he was hoping to compete for a linebacker spot. He did get to play two seasons with Dawson at ole Miss before the older sibling was drafted by the Bills as a tight end in the 2019 NFL Draft.

    The newest superstar added to the Bills roster in free agency, Von Miller, made a recruiting effort to reunite with SBLVI teammate, Odell Beckham Jr. En route to their first Super Bowl title in over 20 years, the Los Angeles Rams acquired two contributors last year who greatly influenced their title run. Odell Beckham Jr. was scooped up by the Rams shortly after the Browns elected to release him and Von Miller came to town via a trade with Denver — a deal that cost L.A. their second and third-round selections in the 2022 NFL Draft. Following the Super Bowl in which OBJ suffered a torn ACL in his left knee for the second time in as many years, the star receiver emerged as one of the most intriguing free agent options for contenders across the league. He is not expected to return to the field until sometime in December, however, and will be a limited contributor wherever it is that he lands. Von Miller, the aforementioned second late-season add for the Rams in 2021 was signed by the Buffalo...

    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.

    New York Governor Kathy Hochul signed a sweeping package of new gun-related laws on Monday in the wake of the murder of 10 black people by 18-year-old, Payton Gendron, at a Buffalo supermarket on May 14. Among the new measures, New Yorkers younger than 21 can no longer buy high-powered semiautomatic rifles, rules and regulations governing the state's power to take the guns of people deemed dangerous were strengthened and social media companies will be required to put in place a system for reporting online threats. 'In New York, we are taking bold, strong action. We're tightening red flag laws to keep guns away from dangerous people,' Hochul said at the signing ceremony. Hochul approved bills that raised the age of purchasing semi-automatic weapons, tweaked the red flag laws, required micro-stamps on new weapons and limits the sale and purchase of body armor Bulletproof vests and body armor will also be harder to purchase in the Empire State And making a threat of a mass shooting or bombing is now a crime in New York state, punishable by up to...

With Josh Allen’s huge contract extension kicking in, Buffalo Bills general manager Brandon Beane made it clear that the team won’t be able to keep all of their other players who have earned raises.

    The Buffalo Bills schedule has been released, which means it’s time to start predicting what will happen this season.  The Buffalo Bills were so close to eliminating the Kansas City Chiefs from the Divisional Round. Quarterback Josh Allen put up a performance for the ages. Yet, the Bills ran into Patrick Mahomes magic and lost in overtime. This offseason, the Bills made moves to help their odds of returning to the Super Bowl for the first time since the 1993 season. Perhaps their largest transaction was signing former Denver Broncos and Los Angeles Rams linebacker Von Miller. The Bills knew of their opponents for the 2022 season, but were unaware of the exact schedule. There was a leak of the schedule, which was shared with Twitter account “@YardsPerPass.” From everything Ive seen and heard… this leak of the Bills schedule seems to be correct pic.twitter.com/zST2WSBWwB — YardsPerPass (@YardsPerPass) May 12, 2022 With this, we make some predictions how the regular-season will end for the Bills.Buffalo Bills schedule 2022 Week 1: at Los Angeles Rams, 8:20 pm ET on NBC...

    Getty Matt Araiza #2 of the San Diego State Aztecs kicks the ball against the Boise State Broncos on November 26, 2021. The Buffalo Bills were praised for selecting a much-needed cornerback in Round 1 and getting “a steal” in Round 5 with wide receiver Khalil Shakir, but the move that drew the strongest reaction was the selected of Matt Araiza, a.k.a, “The Punt God,” with their No. 180 pick. Back in October, the San Diego State alum, who calls his favorite punt a “moonshot,” sent the ball 81 yards in the air during a game against the Air Force Falcons in Colorado Springs, and that monster kick came a week after he punted for 86 yards against San Jose State.

    Getty Running back Breece Hall #28 of the Iowa State Cyclones drives the ball down field as linebacker Dee Winters #13, and safety Nook Bradford #28 of the TCU Horned Frogs defend at Jack Trice Stadium on November 26, 2021. The Buffalo Bills are mere days away from deciding who they will select in the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft and while analysts have pored over each and every direction the team may swing with their No. 25 overall pick, NFL Network analyst Daniel Jeremiah believes the team will swerve to select a running back. While the Bills are in desperate need of a cornerback and could definitely use another receiver, selecting Iowa State’s Breece Hall, “by far — would be the best running back on their roster if he were to go there. Jeremiah said during a conference call on April 21. “I think you’ve got an offense that’s going to go out and get a bunch of leads with how explosive they are, I think getting somebody that can finish the game, I think...
    Getty Joe Haden runs onto the field before a Pittsburgh Steelers game. Von Miller is doing his part to help the Buffalo Bills shore up one of the last remaining weaknesses on defense.

    Stefon Diggs and the Buffalo Bills have agreed to a gargantuan four-year contract extension. Stefon Diggs will be with the Buffalo Bills for a long time, as the Pro Bowl wide receiver has inked a four-year contract extension, keeping him in Western New York for the next six seasons. Diggs is getting $104 million on this four-year extension with $70 million of that being fully guaranteed. He is now on the books for $124.1 million over the next six seasons with every intention of retiring with the Buffalo franchise.

    Getty Stefon Diggs warms up before a Buffalo Bills game. The Buffalo Bills may need to trade star receiver Stefon Diggs sometime in the near future — at least, according to one former general manager. Doug Whaley, who served as Buffalo’s general manager before being replaced by Brandon Beane in 2017, said in an interview on Sirius XMNFL that the Bills may not be able to afford Diggs now that fellow wide receivers Tyreek Hill and Davante Adams scored mega deals. He predicted that the Bills would instead need to trade Diggs, and idea not sitting well with many Bills fans and insiders. The latest Bills news straight to your inbox!

    A closer reading of Gov. Hochul’s billion-dollar election-year giveaway to her beloved Buffalo Bills shows the deal is even worse than we thought. The memorandum of understanding signed by New York State, Erie County and the Bills lays out in section after section state taxpayers being clipped, blocked, blitzed and sacked. Hochul more than fumbled, she committed an illegal motion, being offsides by huddling with the Bills against her own team, the taxpayers. The NFL rulebook is long and we could go on with puns of a turnover, a penalty and being picked off, but the specifics are what damns this rotten deal. The state will pay $600 million and Erie County another $250 million for construction of a $1.4 billion new home for the Bills next to their current field in the Buffalo suburbs. But as Eric County Executive Mark Poloncarz promises that there will be no increase in property taxes, and since the county cannot otherwise print or raise money, it’s pretty likely that the funds will be coming from Albany (translation: state taxpayers). On top of that,...
    Getty James Bradberry reacts to a play in a game against the Los Angeles Chargers. The Buffalo Bills are in need of some help in the secondary, but may have decided to bow out of the race for a $43.5 million cornerback reportedly on the trade block. The Bills have had a busy offseason adding to their defensive line, adding three new key players including edge rusher Von Miller. But they have yet to add any new members of the secondary, despite losing cornerback Levi Wallace to the Pittsburgh Steelers and facing the prospect of up to half of the season without All Pro Tre’Davious White, who is rehabbing a torn ACL and meniscus injury.

    Getty Buffalo Bills linebacker Tyler Matakevich reacts to a play in the 2022 AFC Wild Card playoff game. The Buffalo Bills have made some key additions this offseason, but an insider believes there will be at least one more significant subtraction coming for a team still looking for cap space. Bills general manager Brandon Beane said early in the preseason that the team would not be able to make any huge moves due to their tight cap situation. While that was not entirely true — the team would make a splash by signing Von Miller — the Bills are still in need of some room to make more moves, and one insider believes a special teams ace could be on the chopping block.
