Buffalo Bills

The final score, 27-17, was only part of the story in Sunday's Biils victory over the New York Jets.  Analyst Matt Sabuda says the Buffalo Bills joined several NFL teams in remaining in the locker room while the national anthem played prior to kickoff as players use their use their platforms to call for social justice.  Another facet of Sunday's story, of course, was the lack of spectators at Buffalo Bills Stadium as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact daily life.

Despite the advancements delivered by Title IX legislation over the last 50 years, girls still participate in sports less than boys, and the disparity widens with the pressures of adulthood. Why does it matter? Because kids who compete do better in school, at work and throughout life. So WBFO's Marian Hetherly took a look at leveling the playing field in a series she's calling "Girl Power."

Despite their overtime playoff loss to the Houston Texans, the Buffalo Bills enjoyed a solid season. Analyst Matt Sabuda says several young players were at the heart of the postseason push in 2019. That group should be expected to improve in the coming season, but Sabuda believes a "few key additions" are needed. At the top of his list is a top-tier wide receiver and an impactful pass rusher. He'd also like to see the coaching staff take an aggressive step forward. "My biggest criticism this year was their tendency to take their foot off the gas when they had any kind of success."

Some fans traveled to Houston to attend the game. Others jammed sports bars across Western New York to watch on TV. But all of Bills Nation is in shock after watching their team blow a 16 point lead in Saturday's wildcard round of the NFL playoffs. Buffalo lost to the Texans 22 to 19 in overtime.

Deshaun Watson of the Houston Texans has established himself as one of the NFL's "best young quarterbacks," so says analyst Matt Sabuda. While he believes Watson and his talented teammates present a major challenge, Sabuda wonders if the Buffalo Bills can "keep their nerves in check" in Saturday's playoff game at Houston. If they do, he says the Bills have the talent to come away with their first playoff win since 1995.

Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills can finally look ahead to making their playoff preparations knowing they're headed to Houston next weekend.

The outcome of Sunday's game with the New York Jets will not change the Buffalo Bills' position heading into next week's playoffs. Since they are sure to be the fifth seed, analyst Matt Sabuda suggests fans take a moment to enjoy the team's progress. "This is the best team that the Bills have put on the field in 20 years," Sabuda declares. The roster, highlighted by second-year quarterback Josh Allen, is full of emerging young talent, Sabuda says, and that's reason to feel confident the Bills will be in contention for the foreseeable future.

Tom Brady passed for 271 yards and a touchdown, sneaked for a third-down conversion to set up another score and threw a downfield block on another scoring drive to help the New England Patriots clinch their 11th AFC East title in a row by beating Buffalo 24-17 on Saturday.

Fans are eager for Saturday's game between the Buffalo Bills and New England Patriots. With a playoff spot already secured and a difficult path to winning the AFC East, analyst Matt Sabuda believes the Bills are "playing with house money." He says, win or lose, the Bills are in a good position heading to the postseason.


With their 17-10 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday night, the Buffalo Bills are going to the playoffs for just the second time in this century. The Bills improve to 10-4 on the season and still hold an outside chance of ousting the New England Patriots from their familiar spot atop the AFC East. Analyst Matt Sabuda believes this edition of the Buffalo Bills is different from other recent teams "in the best ways possible."


It's simple for the Buffalo Bills, says analyst Matt Sabuda, win this Sunday and they clinch a spot in the playoffs.  Simple, but by no means easy. The Pittsburgh Steelers, winner of four straight games, will host the Bills Sunday night. Sabuda says the Steelers aggressive defense will test young quarterback Josh Allen who is coming off an uneven performance in last Sunday's loss to the Baltimore Ravens. Oddsmakers have made the Steelers a slight favorite.


While Sunday's game between the Buffalo Bills (9-3) and the Baltimore Ravens (10-2) carries playoff implications, it also features two of the five quarterbacks selected in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft, Josh Allen and Lamar Jackson. Analyst Matt Sabuda sees Jackson as the leading candidate for league MVP, but he says Allen's production is not far behind.  According to Sabuda, Jackson leads all quarterbacks with 32 total touchdowns; Allen is fifth with 24.  The game also represents the most combined rushing yards by opposing quarterbacks in NFL history.
