Buffalo Bills

Five games into the season, the Buffalo Bills and the Houston Texans each have two wins and three losses. The records, however, don't highlight some of the glaring differences between the teams. As analyst Matt Sabuda points out, the Texans have lost by close margins while the Bills have been blown out in their games. The Houston passing game has been far more prolific with quarterback Deshaun Watson tossing for at least 300 yards in the last four games. By comparison, Bills rookie quarterback Josh Allen has yet to have a 300-yard passing game.

It was a sloppy, ugly win, says analyst Matt Sabuda of the Buffalo Bills's 13-12 victory over the Tennessee Titans Sunday, but the result is important for a young team trying to build an identity. In holding the Titans to 221 total yards and forcing three turnovers, the Bills' defense may be exceeding expectations. The other side of the ball is a different story as the offense, including rookie quarterback Josh Allen, is showing few signs of improvement.


After four regular season games, rookie Josh Allen has given Bills fans reason for hope (two touchdown runs against the Vikings) and for concern (two interceptions, seven sacks at Green Bay). Analyst Matt Sabuda expects fans to be patient for the near future, but a solid performance this Sunday against the Tennessee Titans is needed for the Bills to come away with a victory.


Will the Buffalo Bills be getting a new home?

Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz says a new stadium for the Buffalo Bills is "not in the cards right now."

The Buffalo Bills suffered a 22-0 loss to the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field, dropping them to 1-3 on the season. WBFO's Howard Riedel and analyst Matt Sabuda summarize what went wrong on this morning's Beyond The Playbook.

Aaron Rodgers and Jimmy Graham connected on their first touchdown pass of the year, and the Green Bay Packers put together their most complete defensive effort of the season in a 22-0 win over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.

What a difference a week makes. Heading into last weekend the Buffalo Bills were 17-point underdogs for their game at Minnesota. The Bills responded by blowing up the oddsmakers--and the Minnesota Vikings--with a 27-6 victory. While the outlook has improved, analyst Matt Sabuda says the Bills still face a difficult task when they play on the road Sunday against the Green Bay Packers.


The Buffalo Bills shocked the football world with Sunday's dominant 27-6 victory over the heavily-favored Minnesota Vikings. WBFO Bills analyst Matt Sabuda came away impressed by the performance of rookie quarterback Josh Allen.

Josh Allen played with the poise of a well-seasoned quarterback for the Buffalo Bills by accounting for three touchdowns in his first road start in the NFL. Allen made Minnesota's Kirk Cousins look like the raw rookie in a stunning 27-6 upset of the Vikings on Sunday afternoon.

Following two awful losses to start the season, the Buffalo Bills head into Sunday's road game against the Minnesota Vikings as huge underdogs.  According to analyst Matt Sabuda, as 16-point underdogs the Bills would make oddsmaker history if they were to win Sunday.  In the last decade, only 20 games featured point spreads of 16 or more. Sabuda says the favored team won every time.

A sudden decision to retire - midway through Sunday's game - added a unique twist to an already frustrating start to the 2018 National Football League season for the Buffalo Bills. Vontae Davis trotted off the field with his Bills teammates at halftime, but never returned to finish the game.


For the second consecutive game the Buffalo Bills defense offered little resistance. After surrendering 47 points in their season opener against the Baltimore Ravens, the unit was ripped for 28 points in the FIRST HALF of Sunday's game at New Era Field. Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers completed 15 of 16 passes to start the game in leading his team to an easy victory, 31-20. Analyst Matt Sabuda expects changes in how the Bills coaching staff leads the defense in coming games.


Melvin Gordon matched a career high by scoring three touchdowns, and the Los Angeles Chargers defeated Buffalo 31-20 in manhandling the anemic Bills during rookie quarterback Josh Allen's debut as a starter.

The decision to start rookie Josh Allen has sparked hope and concern among Buffalo Bills fans. As analyst Matt Sabuda points out, Allen possesses "jaw-dropping athleticism," but his "uneven performance" in relief of Nathan Peterman last week has worked to temper expectations. If the Bills are to contend with the Chargers in Sunday's home opener, Sabuda says the Bills game plan will need to rely upon running back LeSean McCoy.

Rookie quarterback Josh Allen will start for the Buffalo Bills in Sunday's home opener against the Los Angeles Chargers.

The Buffalo Bills started their regular season with a 47-3 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. Here to make us relive those horrible memories is Bills Analyst Matt Sabuba.

The Baltimore Ravens harassed and embarrassed Buffalo quarterback Nathan Peterman on a rainy Sunday afternoon and beat the rebuilding Bills 47-3.

As they start the 2018 season, the Buffalo Bills are "like a scratch-off lottery ticket," says analyst Matt Sabuda. "There definitely is a chance that things could go well, but probably not." On the positive side, Sabuda looks to the new additions on the defense, including rookie linebacker Tremaine Edmunds. The biggest concern is the offensive line which Sabuda calls "a reshaped unit on the cheap."
