'The next eight Bills opponents have defenses that all entered Week Six ranked in the bottom 10 in the NFL in yards allowed.'
'He was replaced by Fitzpatrick, making Winston the next victim of the Fitzpatrick Curse. Much like in his previous stops around the league, Fitzpatrick signed to be the backup in Tampa Bay but is getting time because the starter got hurt.'
'On the Bills’ current 53-man roster, only 19 players remain from Whaley’s reign (2013-17). Safety Colt Anderson just went on injured reserve, but that number figures to go back up to 20 this week as offensive tackle Seantrel Henderson returns to the roster after serving his 10-game suspension for using what he maintains was “medical marijuana” to counteract Crohn’s disease.'
'The Seahawks had previously approached the Bills about their left tackle, Cordy Glenn, but those conversations largely fizzled. While Glenn could be an option to be moved ahead of the deadline — Buffalo has a plethora of tackles at a time most teams have a scarcity, and the team is high on several of its young linemen — it would take a considerable haul to land him. That and his high salary made for a poor fit with the Seahawks.'
'Glenn currently counts $14.2 million towards the Bills' 2017 salary cap. He's scheduled to count $14.5 million in 2018. According to the salary cap website Spotrac, if Glenn were traded he would still count $9.6 million against the teams' cap next year, netting them a cap savings of roughly $5 million.'
'"Man it meant everything. It felt like I was playing. You can tell man I lost my voice and everything. Man I'm so, I can't explain it right now. When it comes to LSU man and it comes to my players and the guys that I left here, my guys from last year man and it means a lot to me and it means the world to me to have these guys come out with a big victory like this," White said.'
'“For me, [I donate tickets to" target="_blank"> the Boys and Girls Club because my father always taught me how it was big for him. It was instrumental for him growing up as an adolescent. It kept him off the streets. It kept him from doing things he shouldn’t be doing. It was a nice safe-haven for him. Kids should go play, have fun, get out of the house [and" target="_blank"> just be a kid. I think that’s very important, especially in this time. We really need our kids to be active, have fun and just enjoy their youth.”'
'Through five weeks McCoy has caught 27 passes for 189 yards. He leads the team in receptions. If this production continues, McCoy would finish the season with 604 receiving yards. That would be a season-high for the nine-year veteran.'
