  1. The Bills’ 24-10 win over the Patriots on Thursday night had significant implications in the AFC East race, and the result is not good for New England. The Patriots are all but out of the AFC East, and they look like long shots to make the playoffs as a wild card as well. Here’s how [more]View the full article
  2. A reunion between Odell Beckham Jr. and the Giants could still be in the works. Beckham is slated to continue his late-season, free-agency tour. But last night he had dinner with New York brass, including head coach Brian Daboll. Daboll addressed the meeting at the beginning of his Friday press conference, but didn’t say much [more]View the full article
  3. After Thursday night’s loss to the Bills, multiple New England players broke for the Stepford Patriot programming to express concerns about the team offense. Leading the way was quarterback Mac Jones, whose displeasure was clear during and after the game. On Friday, coach Bill Belichick faced questions on the situation during his usual day-after press [more]View the full article
  4. The Bills placed Von Miller on injured reserve before Thursday night’s game against the Patriots and their defense’s first outing without Miller went just fine. Patriots defensive back Marcus Jones moonlighted on offense and took a quick pass 48 yards for a touchdown in the first quarter, but the team only picked up 194 yards [more]View the full article
  5. The Bills did a lot of strong work on the ground during Thursday night’s game against the Patriots and they wound up with 132 yards on the ground for the night, but they still looked to quarterback Josh Allen to finish drives through the air in the first half. Allen put the Bills up 10-7 [more]View the full article
  6. After losing 24-10 to the Bills on Thursday night, Patriots head coach Bill Belichick was asked if it is difficult to keep the team’s offensive players from getting frustrated about the unit’s level of aggressiveness and Belichick replied by saying “you’d have to ask them that.” The answer seemed obvious during the game. Quarterback Mac [more]View the full article
  7. Mac Jones is getting upset. Weeks after the Bailey Zappe drama resolved itself, there’s another issue. New England’s starting quarterback isn’t pleased with the play calling. Cameras captured an agitated Jones yelling (via some fairly basic lip-reading skills), “Throw the fucking ball. The fucking running game sucks.” (He may have said “quick game.” Either way, [more]View the full article
  8. The Bills punted three times Thursday night against the Patriots. That was something. In two games against New England last season, Buffalo didn’t punt. The Bills, though, still scored on four of eight possessions, not counting kneel downs at the end of the first half and the end of the game, and dominated the Patriots, [more]View the full article
  9. Bills safety Damar Hamlin was ejected for a nasty hit on Patriots receiver Jakobi Meyers late in the fourth quarter. On third-and-14 from the Buffalo 15, Mac Jones threw a pass to Meyers, who looked like he was going to make the catch in the end zone with Jordan Poyer covering him. But Hamlin came [more]View the full article
  10. The Bills padded their lead with a 1-yard touchdown run by Devin Singletary. Buffalo leads the Patriots 24-7 with 14:31 left. The Bills went 94 yards in 15 plays for their latest touchdown. The Patriots punted on their only drive of the second half and now trail by three scores. Josh Allen is 20-of-31 for [more]View the full article
  11. The Patriots finally forced the Bills to punt, and they stayed in the game with a strip-sack of Josh Allen inside of two minutes. But New England trails 17-7 at halftime. The Bills had gone 23 consecutive drives without punting against the Patriots, dating to the 2020 season. Buffalo scored on its first three drives [more]View the full article
  12. In two games against the Patriots last season, Buffalo didn’t punt. The Bills have had three possessions and three scores Monday night. The latest came on an 8-yard throw from Josh Allen to Gabe Davis with 5:27 left in the second quarter. On third-and-goal at the New England 8, Allen rolled away from the pressure [more]View the full article
  13. Stefon Diggs has tied his career high with his 10th touchdown catch of the season. He turned around Patriots defensive back Jonathan Jones and caught an 8-yard touchdown pass from Josh Allen on the first play of the second quarter. The Bills lead 10-7. Diggs has two catches for 27 yards, and James Cook has [more]View the full article
  14. Marcus Jones played offense, defense and special teams at the University of Houston last season. Since the Patriots made Jones a third-round selection, they have used him at cornerback and as a returner. He entered Monday Night Football having played 75 defensive snaps and 107 on special teams. On his first offensive snap of the [more]View the full article
  15. The Patriots will not have cornerback Jalen Mills (groin) for Thursday Night Football. He is among the team’s inactives. He has made 31 tackles, two interceptions and five pass breakups in 10 games. New England is thin at offensive tackle with Yodny Cajuste (calf) joining Isaiah Wynn (foot) on the sideline. Cajuste was projected to [more]View the full article
  16. The Patriots announced they have elevated offensive lineman Bill Murray and kicker Tristan Vizcaino to the active roster from the practice squad for Thursday Night Football. Murray, 25, originally joined New England as a rookie free agent out of William & Mary in 2020. He is in his third season on the practice squad. The [more]View the full article
  17. The Bills are bringing up a familiar face for Thursday’s game against the Patriots. Buffalo has elevated receiver John Brown to the roster, the club announced on Thursday afternoon. Brown joined the Bills practice squad on Nov. 26. He had not been with a team this season. But he spent the 2019 and 2020 seasons [more]View the full article
  18. Bills edge rusher Von Miller said this week that he was hopeful about returning from his knee injury in time to play the Jets in Week 14, but that’s not going to happen. The Bills announced on Thursday that Miller has been placed on injured reserve. He will miss at least four games as a [more]View the full article
  19. There’s good news for New England’s offense as the club takes on Buffalo tonight. While receiver Jakobi Meyers was listed as questionable with a shoulder injury, he is expected to play, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Meyers was able to play just 16 snaps in last Thursday’s loss to the Vikings, catching three passes for 62 [more]View the full article
  20. The Patriots have added tackle Trent Brown to their injury report on Thursday morning. Brown is now listed as questionable to play against the Bills on Thursday night. An illness is the reason why Brown has been added to the list. The addition comes after the Patriots ruled Isaiah Wynn out with a foot injury [more]View the full article
  21. The Bills got plenty of positive contributions from their kicking game in November and now have something aside from two wins to show for it. Kicker Tyler Bass has been named AFC special teams player of the month. Bass connected on 12-of-13 field goals and 8-of-9 extra points in four games. His 44 points were [more]View the full article
  22. The Rams has been keeping a figurative light on for receiver Odell Beckham Jr., by literally leaving his name on a locker at the team’s practice facility. That locker is no more. Greg Beacham of the Associated Press reports that the locker the Rams had been saving for Beckham is now blank again. It’s no [more]View the full article
  23. Wide receiver Jakobi Meyers was a limited participant in practice for the third straight day on Wednesday and the Patriots have listed him as questionable to play against the Bills. Meyers hurt his shoulder on a catch early in last Thursday’s loss to the Vikings. He was able to return to the game, which would [more]View the full article
  24. The Patriots haven’t forgotten how ugly their last meeting with the Bills was. In a playoff loss last postseason, the Patriots’ defense simply couldn’t stop the Bills’ offense: Buffalo ended every drive with a touchdown or kneeldown, an unprecedented feat in NFL history. As Patriots safety Adrian Phillips put it, the Patriots “went out there [more]View the full article
  25. Bills left tackle Dion Dawkins is going to miss Thursday night’s game. The Bills released their final injury report ahead of their matchup with the Bills and it shows that Dawkins has been ruled out. Dawkins missed practice all week with the ankle injury that he suffered against the Lions on Thanksgiving. David Quessenberry replaced [more]View the full article
