Tyrod Taylor needs to minimize the amount of sacks he takes

The Buffalo Bills’ record sits at 3-2 and the team can thank its defense and field goal units for that. The offense and its quarterback, by contrast, have been under fire going into the bye week.   The quarterback being under heat is nothing new for Taylor. He is used to being critiqued on a weekly basis. This season is a little different, however, because he hasn’t been able to lean on LeSean McCoy and the running game. At times

Drought Pains: How Years of Constant Change Have Led To Constant Calls For Change

After losing four straight Super Bowls, and now having the longest playoff drought in all of sports, the Buffalo Bills franchise is often referred to as one of the worst, and the fans considered some of the most suffering. This emotionally-draining franchise has done quite a number on the fanbase as a whole. While Bills fans are some of the most loyal and passionate fans in the NFL, the years of shattered expectations, a revolving door of personnel, marketing pitches,

Filmroom Breakdown: Week 5

It’s been a difficult 17 years, hasn’t it? In that span of misfortune, I don’t think I can remember a player as highly scrutinized as Tyrod Taylor. The only player I can think of as close is Ryan Fitzpatrick after he inked that ridiculous 6-year $59 million deal in 2011. Truthfully, I’m not old enough to remember the ins and outs of the 1999 season or the Doug Flutie/Rob Johnson thing, so Taylor takes the (my) cake. I already offered

Running Game Failures

Well, the Buffalo Bills have reached the bye week and, in Bills fashion, this season has had its ups and downs. But going into their football-less Sunday 3-2 probably wasn’t expected. I’ll say it: as of right now, they have overachieved, thanks to a stingy defense that leads the league in scoring, only allowing 14.8 points/game. The @buffalobills enter the team's bye week ranked as the @NFL's top scoring defense. pic.twitter.com/UiVR8muQLs — Buffalo Bills PR (@BuffaloBillsPR) October 11, 2017

Flex On ‘Em – Week 6

It’s officially BYEWEEK SZN – a critical time for average and below-average teams to sneak up on an unsuspecting juggernaut weakened by a star player on bye. If you’re one of those middling teams, then it’s time to take a few chances, hoping that one of these unknown guys will blow up for a week and put you back in the race. Everybody wants to at least win their $20 league entry fee back so they can get an extra side

The Offense Can’t Afford to Miss Opportunities

During their game against the Bengals, the Buffalo Bills’ offense squandered several opportunities to really seize control of the game, even though the defense created several turnovers, thereby creating opportunities for Tyrod Taylor and company.   But the offense struggled. The Bengals’ defense is no slouch; they are a top-five unit. The Bengals held an otherwise efficient red zone offense in the Bills to 1/3 for the day.   But on this play, the defense didn’t stop the Bills. Rather, quarterback
