Buffalo Bills shouldn’t be ignored anymore.

NFC West / AFC West

By Dayna O’Gorman // @DaynaOG

Over the last few weeks in the NFL, we’ve heard a lot about the NFC West, quarterback Lamar Jackson and the amazing Baltimore Ravens, the troubles in Dallas, and the possible decline of New England Patriots QB Tom Brady. Who we haven’t been hearing much about are the Buffalo Bills, which has been a huge miss by the media. Its time to give credit where credit is due… let’s talk Bills.

The Buffalo Bills have a 9-3 record. The Bills. 9-3. The same Buffalo Bills that hadn’t been to a playoff game in 17 years, and made it to that Wild Card game in 2017 with a record of 9-7. This means that unless the Bills lose out, which is insanely unlikely, they will have the best record they’ve had since 1999. 20 long, heartbreaking, fandom testing years.

Buffalo Bills want FEARLESS Josh Allen

By Heather Prusak // @haprusak 

About the Author: Heather Prusak is a sports anchor/reporter for WGRZ in Buffalo. She has spent the past five years covering the Bills in her hometown after graduating from Syracuse University.

Doug Flutie, Drew Bledsoe, J.P. Losman, Trent Edwards, Ryan Fitzpatrick, EJ Manuel, and Tyrod Taylor.

Those names are all too familiar to Buffalo Bills fans as a reminder of their failed attempts to find a franchise quarterback, one of the main factors in a team sustaining success in the NFL.

The Bills have been searching for their franchise guy since Jim Kelly retired and are hoping that search ended on April 26th, 2018 when Josh Allen became their highest-drafted quarterback ever.

GM Brandon Beane and head coach Sean McDermott traded up to draft Allen seventh overall, and in his 20 career starts, Allen has shown flashes of being that guy. Flashes.

The Bills didn’t draft him that high to simply be a game-manager.

The Patriots and Bills go head to head to be on top of the AFC East

By Lisa Johnson // @LJ1303

When looking at this week’s New England Patriots game against the Buffalo Bills, not only is this an early pivotal AFC east match-up, this game already has the word epic swirling all around it. And it’s not just because both teams are 3-0. Oh no. It’s also because this has garnered what could be the strangest headline in NFL history.

Before Sunday’s matchup, Bills fans will again be warned, via social media, that there would be repercussions if any… umm… “toys” are tossed on the field. And I don’t mean kids toys. Anyone caught throwing said toys will face a lifetime ban.

One thing I know about being a life long Dolphins fans, Bills fans are easily the top-five wildest fan bases in the NFL. So this is nothing but a challenge for them.

A bright outlook for the 2019 Buffalo Bills

Senior NFL Reporter

By Dayna O’Gorman // @DaynaOG

The 2018 season was an odd one for the Buffalo Bills, to say the least. Finishing the season 6 -10, they failed to return to the playoffs, and the first round draft pick, quarterback Josh Allen, had a rough season.

However, analysts and fans are quite optimistic about the upcoming season. I sat down (virturally) to chat with Bills Mafia editor, Robyn Mundy, to see how she felt about the off season and the upcoming year.

Dayna O’Gorman: “Lets start with your Quarterback, Josh Allen. Many believe he will make a huge jump this season, maybe even being the most improved player from the 2018 draft class. What are your thoughts on Josh? What makes him special? And do you believe he can be a leader in 2019?”

2019 NFL Combine: Kentucky isn’t just a “basketball school”

I’m one of those people who tends to put college athletic programs into buckets based on which sport they are really good at or known for. To me, Kentucky has always been a “Basketball School.” And for good reason, right?

However, this year’s NFL Scouting Combine has given me a new appreciation for what’s going on with their football program.

They finished last season with an impressive 10-3 record and have eight players participating in Combine activities, including a player who may be the top Edge Rusher in this year’s draft, Josh Allen.

2019 NFL Combine: how do the defensive linemen measure up?

Kate Arhar
Senior Sports Editor

By Kate Arhar // @ClvlndK8

Day 4 of the 2019 NFL Scouting Combine brings the defense to the forefront. Defensive Lineman, Edge Rushers and Linebackers took their turn at the 40-yard dash, bench press and other drills.

Many fans have been anticipating Nick Bosa‘s return to the field after suffering an injury last fall that ended his season at the Ohio State University. Kentucky’s Josh Allen has been the talk of draft pick trade rumors all week as teams discuss making moves up the board to get him. Were Montez Sweat‘s (Missouri) amazing numbers enough to propel him into the top ten?

Let’s take a look at these three positions and how the top prospects / performers graded out. It’s up to you to decide how these times / scores should be used in conjunction with film to decide which one works best for your team! Complete stats can be found HERE on the NFL website.

Bills Select QB Josh Allen!

Since March, when the Bills traded left tackle Cordy Glenn and the 21st pick to Cincinnati to move up to the Bengals’ spot at #12, it was clear that the goal of the 2018 NFL draft for Bills’ General Manager Brandon Beane was to get the franchise quarterback the fans have been dreaming about.

2018 NFL Draft: QBs to provide big impact for 5 teams

Kate Arhar
Cleveland Browns Reporter

 

By Kate Arhar // @ClvlndK8

Round One of the 2018 NFL Draft saw five Quarterbacks get taken: Baker Mayfield, Sam Darnold, Josh Allen, Josh Rosen and Lamar Jackson. These men should have a huge impact on their new teams and could really shake-up their divisions.

The first four all went in the top 10 but it took a while for Jackson to find a home. In what may have been the most joyful moment of the evening for a lot of his fans, the Ravens traded back into the first round to get him at 32. Two went to the AFC North and two went to the AFC East. Both those divisions are going to see the quality of competition rise significantly in the next couple years.

OurTurf’s Mock NFL Draft Part 1

By Wanda Wiedman//@WandaW63

Free agency is pretty much on the quiet front with some players still trickling on to teams, such as quarterback Blaine Gabbert to the Tennessee Titans, and defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh to the Los Angeles Rams.  But now it’s all about the draft and filling the holes that will make or break a team. So here is my attempt at Round 1 of the NFL Draft.
