The outcome of the Bills-Bengals game can be explained very easily. Cincinnati had A.J. Green and the Bills did not. That is why the Bills left Paul Brown Stadium with a 20-16 loss on Sunday and their first AFC defeat of the season. A Bills passing game, that is no better than average, was left...

Pete Carges @Carges550 It takes a big man to admit when he was wrong, and fortunately for all of my loyal followers that big man is me. There’s no other way to put it, last week was a complete whiff. Hand up, my bad. I’m not a guy that makes excuses but kickers missing 19 and 22-yard field goals is...

I don't quite understand why this night is so memorable for me. The Sabres opened the 2007-08 season on October 5, hosting the New York Islanders. It was their first game since the 2007 season ended right here, Daniel Alfredsson beating Ryan Miller with an overtime wrist shot while most of America...

I had planned my Sabres season preview as an open letter to the team. I’ll get to that once we’re done here, but Jack Eichel has signed a max term contract with the Buffalo Sabres. An eight-year deal with the Sabres would mean he’s under contract with the hockey team through the 2026-2027 season. I...
