Matt Sabuda

Despite a losing record, the Buffalo Bills still have hope to reach the playoffs. For that to happen, analyst Matt Sabuda points out the Bills will need help from other teams and they need to beat Houston on Sunday.


The Bills' 30-22 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs hurt Buffalo's playoff chances and has left fans exasperated.

The final margin may have been close, but the Bills 20-13 loss to the Patriots once again featured critical penalties and poor clock management. "These types of mistakes are beyond tiresome. And you have to wonder how much is on coaching at this point in the season," said analyst Matt Sabuda.


Injuries are mounting for the New England Patriots, the Bills opponent this Monday. But as analyst Matt Sabuda points out, as long as quarterback Tom Brady is healthy, the Patriots will remain a formidable foe. 


The Bills' 22-17 victory over the New York Jets Thursday night was fueled by the production of their offensive backfield. On Friday morning's Beyond the Playbook, analyst Matt Sabuda says key performances were turned in by LeSean McCoy and Karlos Williams.

The Buffalo Bills 33-17 win over the Miami Dolphins provided a much needed boost for fans as the Bills head into Thursday night's game against the New York Jets.


Though the Buffalo Bills arrive at bye week with a disappointing record, the first seven games have had some bright spots. Analyst Matt Sabuda says the promising play of quarterback Tyrod Taylor tops that list.


Quarterback Andy Dalton threw for three touchdown passes as the Cincinnati Bengals beat the Bills 34-21 Sunday. Analyst Matt Sabuda says the Bills defense is not living up to its reputation.

The Buffalo Bills head into Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals with many key players, including Sammy Watkins, Tyrod Taylor and LeSean McCoy, dealing with injuries. Analyst Matt Sabuda believes the Bills will need them, and more, to beat the undefeated Bengals.


Coming off a disappointing loss to the New York Giants, the Bills (2-2) hit the road looking for a win Sunday against the Tennessee Titans. "The Bills really need to get off to a good start without sloppy play calling and execution," said analyst Matt Sabuda on WBFO's Beyond the Playbook.


While some argue that the Bills new aggressive attitude is behind the team’s penchant for penalties, analyst Matt Sabuda isn’t buying it.


It appears wide receiver Sammy Watkins and running back LeSean McCoy will not be in the lineup when the Bills host the New York Giants Sunday. Analyst Matt Sabuda believes the Bills have a chance to overcome the injuries against a suspect Giants defense.
