Josh Allen is ready to take the leap. The Bills shoot-out victory over the Miami Dolphins last Sunday saw Allen throw for 417 yards, 4 touchdowns and 0 interceptions with a yards per attempt (Y/A) of 11.91 and a completion percentage (cmp%) of 68.57. Furthermore, Allen has become the first Bills quarterback to throw for 300+ yards in back to back games since Drew Bledsoe in 2002.
Unfortunately for fans around the world the 100th season of the NFL has come to an end and what a season it was. It’s now time for a pivotal offseason.
Following the parting of ways with head coach Ron Rivera and then the shock retirement of Luke Kuechly, the Carolina Panthers made it clear that they are in rebuild mode by officially announcing that they will be moving on without Greg Olsen too, after nine years with the tight end.
Buffalo coach Sean McDermott had helped lead the Bills to the postseason for the second time in his three years at the helm. Whilst the Bills, like the Texans, have had a potent running attack this year, they made it to the postseason on the back of a smothering defense, which ranked third overall in the league.
Buffalo’s lack of killer instinct on offence ultimately allowed Houston to hang around and claw their way back into the game in the second half.
The Buffalo Bills have somewhat flown under the radar this year. A case in point was after their recent Thanksgiving Day victory over the Dallas Cowboys. Most of the press buzz after that game was focused on Dallas’ performance and what it meant for the future of Jason Garrett.
Evan Engram’s name is one that you might not have heard too much on the road to the NFL trade deadline. But as we approach Tuesday, his name could get a little more buzz as he’s now healthy after missing a couple of games due to a knee injury.
The Buffalo Bills are sitting solid at 5-1 being one of the pleasant surprises of the NFL season so far. A New England collapse is very unlikely but the Bills, in their current shape, could be engaged in the AFC Wildcard battle deep into the regular season.
Entering week 4, few predicted a perfect 3-0 start for the Buffalo Bills, yet here we are. By the barest of margins, they escaped from New York to open the season with a win over the Jets. Josh Allen threw a pair of bad interceptions, as the Bills failed to register a single scoring play in the 1st half. A pivotal 4th quarter, in which they scored 14 game changing points, perhaps set the tone for the early stages of their season.
Following Jalen Ramsey’s public outburst on the sidelines during the Jaguars defeat to divisional rivals Houston Texans in week 2, it seemed the writing was on the wall. Soon after this display, the rather inevitable trade request landed at the door of GM Dave Caldwell.
Both teams have opponents coming up that struggled mightily defending the passing game and it will be interesting to see if they’ll show off as they’re expected against the Giants and the Browns.
The Buffalo Bills released their star running back LeSean McCoy after four semi-productive years. McCoy joined the Bills in the 2015 offseason. He didn’t stay unemployed for long – the Chiefs signed him to a one-year contract just a couple of hours later.
Buffalo will likely end up .500 at best, despite a stout defence and improved offence.
His workout is more like a line-backer than a punter. The 6’2, 210 pound boasted a 38 inch vertical leap and a 4.6 second 40 time. It’s not just Britton Colquitt that should be looking over his shoulder at the Browns; I’m looking at you Myles Garrett and company.
So, Melvin Gordon wants a big bag of money to stay with the Los Angeles Chargers, and if he doesn't get it, he won't report to training camp and request to be traded, as reported by Adam Schefter.
