Custom Patrick DiMarco Jersey Large

These are the season grades for the key starters on the Buffalo Bills offense in 2019.
The Buffalo Bills entered this past season with almost an entirely new offense from a season ago. In fact they only had two starters, left tackle Dion Dawkins and fullback Patrick DiMarco, for their Week 1 game against the New York Jets that also started the first game of the 2018 season.

The Bills front office was aggressive this past offseason, both in free agency and through the NFL Draft, and had new additions like John Brown, Cole Beasley, Devin Singletary and Dawson Knox all play pivotal roles this season.

These new weapons helped Josh Allen take the next step in his career and the offense showed flashes but lacked consistency. They finished the year 24th in total yards, 26th in passing yards but eighth in rushing yards.

These are the grades for the key players on the Buffalo Bills offense in 2019.

Custom Micah Hyde Jersey Large

The Bills are going to the playoffs, after clinching a spot against the Steelers on Sunday Night Football. Bills safety Micah Hyde is no stranger to the postseason. Last season is the only year of Hyde’s career in which he hasn’t gone to the postseason.

To chat about the win over the Steelers, the upcoming matchup with New England, and the season as a whole, Hyde joined Schopp & the Bulldog as part of Buffalo Bills Football Monday. Here’s some of the best from Hyde’s time with the guys.

On the team being healthy all season:

“Guys have their routines, hot tubs, massages, cold tubs. Coach later in the week & late in the year does a good job helping us stay healthy. Sean brought in a culture where he’s like ‘hey get your rehab, get in the training room’. How healthy we are starts with McDermott. As a professional you should be in the training room, getting your body right for the next game. It shouldn’t be looked at as ‘oh you’re soft’.”

On staying optimistic when down in games:

“Our mindset has been different. Ups & downs, we feel like we’re going to win the game. Even down a field goal, we felt like we were going to win.”

On a different routine for Sunday Night Football:

“It was a long day, not playing on Sunday night in a while. I woke up at the regular time, ate breakfast, watched film. Took a nap.”

On fans showing up to the airport:

“What’s amazing is it was a work day the next day for people. Players on other teams acknowledge Bills Mafia. It’s safe to say we’ve got the best fans in the NFL right now.”

You can hear Micah Hyde’s full segment with Schopp & the Bulldog below.

Custom Trent Murphy Jersey Large

Heading into Sunday’s game against thew New York Jets, Buffalo Bills defensive end Trent Murphy had three sacks on the season. That would have been the lowest total since his rookie season, but the veteran had other ideas.

On Sunday, Murphy took down Jets quarterback Sam Darnold twice to raise his season sack total to five. That also earned Murphy a $350,000 bonus according to Tim Graham of The Athletic. This is an incentive built into his contract.

Murphy totaled four sacks in 2018.

It’s only the second two-sack day of his career and first as a member of the Bills. Murphy received extended playing time thanks to an injury to Shaq Lawson and extra rest given to Jerry Hughes. He played 72% of the defensive snaps, the third-highest percentage on the year.

While Murphy hasn’t reached the lofty expectations of Bills fans following his signing as a free agent, he’s been steady and a good “process” guy in the locker room and weight room. With Lawson hitting the free-agent market, it wouldn’t surprise us if Murphy is back next year even with a salary of $6 million and a cap hit approaching $9 million.

Custom Jerry Hughes Jersey Large

The news from Jerry Hughes on Twitter after the Buffalo Bills season about a wrist injury has piqued the interest of the NFL.

After the Buffalo Bills loss to the Houston Texans, Jerry Hughes tweeted out that he had been playing with torn ligaments in his wrist. This was possibly a contributing factor to the down season Hughes had in terms of sacks, with only 4.5 sacks during the regular season

It is certainly commendable that Hughes was trying his best to help the Bills win while obviously fighting through what was likely a painful injury. Defensive ends are constantly using their hands while trying to beat the offensive linemen in front of him.

However, this news has raised some concerns from the NFL and they have opened an investigation into whether or not the Bills violates rules by not noting the injury on their weekly injury report, according to Buffalo News.

The issue for the NFL, and why they are investigating, is that Hughes was not listed on any injury report all season for a wrist injury. The only times Hughes appeared on the injury report was Week 11 and Week 12 due to a groin injury that forced him to miss three practices and limited for another over the two weeks.

Hughes is the longest tenured player on the Buffalo Bills but only had 23 total tackles, 4.5 sacks and one fumble recovery. However, the veteran pass rusher had his best performance of the season in the playoff game against the Houston Texans, when he had three of the team’s seven sacks.

In the past when teams were found to have violated this rule, they have been fined with the Oakland Raiders fined $20,000 in 2018 and more recently the Detroit Lions fined $75,000 for their reporting of Matthew Stafford’s injury in December.

Custom Shaq Lawson Jersey Large

Buffalo Bills defensive end Shaq Lawson might become “former Bills defensive end Shaq Lawson” in a few weeks.

Lawson had his best season as a professional in 2019, notching 6.5 sacks, second-most on the Bills (Jordan Phillips, 9.5) and he led the team with 13 tackles for loss.

But Lawson wants to set the bar even higher in 2020, regardless of the team he’s on. Lawson took to social media this week and moved things up.

“Great year, but I am coming for 10-plus sacks,” Lawson posted.

While a pending free agent, Lawson did express a desire to return to Buffalo during the team’s locker cleanout day, saying he’d “love” to be back. However, Lawson also indicated that he would have to make an understandable “business decision,” as well.

Most importantly, Lawson doesn’t appear to be taking this personal. The Bills could have locked Lawson up for next season, but declined the fifth-year option on his rookie contract. That’s something that Lawson said motivated him to have a career-year.

Custom Julian Stanford Jersey Large

The Buffalo Bills and the New York Jets have battled through rainy, windy conditions in a sloppy game reminiscent of a preseason tilt thus far. At the half, the score is 3-0.

For the Bills, their number-one goal was to exit the game with everyone at full health. That won’t be the case, as cornerback Levi Wallace suffered what appeared to be a fairly serious ankle injury in the first quarter. He is doubtful to return this week, but he was unable to put any weight on the ankle at all, so his status for next week looks doubtful, as well.

Josh Allen started the game for Buffalo and was largely ineffective for his two series, although he wasn’t asked to do much. Frank Gore leads the team in touches, as he has run the ball effectively all afternoon. He has six carries for 26 yards, and he also leads the team in receiving, catching three passes for 16 yards thus far.

Buffalo’s backups on defense have held the Jets’ starters on offense in check, as the team could only muster a field goal. Kicker Sam Ficken also missed a 51-yard kick on the team’s first drive. Sam Darnold has completed 15-of-23 passes for 122 yards. He also was intercepted by Wallace on the play where the latter injured his ankle. Le’Veon Bell has 12 carries for 45 yards, and Jamison Crowder has five catches for 39 yards.

Defensive back Siran Neal briefly left the game with what appeared to be a stinger, but he was back on the field later in the second quarter. The Bills have employed a heavy rotation thus far, with multiple backups seeing more time than normal. Jaquan Johnson had an interception nullified by a Kurt Coleman personal-foul penalty. Darryl Johnson Jr. has seen a majority of the snaps at defensive end. Julian Stanford has played middle linebacker. Lorenzo Alexander was given a curtain call in the first quarter. It’s been a quintessential Week 17 game.

Matt Barkley threw an interception at the end of the first half, giving the Jets an opportunity for more points heading into intermission. However, Ficken missed his second field goal, this one from only 34 yards out, leaving the score 3-0. His make came from 30 yards out.

This is your second-half thread, ladies and gentlemen. Go Bills! Stay healthy!

Custom Ike Boettger Jersey Large

The playoffs are underway. At the start of last weekend there were 17 former Iowa players trying to help their team earn the Vince Lombardi Trophy and pick up a nice ring in the process.

As long as the Houston Texans or Seattle Seahawks don’t win it all, at least one former Hawkeye will be getting that ring!

For the former Hawkeyes not in the playoffs, their final stats and information are at the bottom of the article and as team are eliminated, they will join their friends at the bottom the week after their loss.

Hawkeyes in the Playoffs

QB C.J. Beathard (San Francisco 49ers, 3rd season in the NFL): Beathard and the 49ers own the top seed in the NFC and had a bye this week. They host the Vikings on Saturday afternoon.

OL Ike Boettger (Buffalo Bills, 2nd season): Boettger and the Bills lost in the wild card game to the Texans 22-19 in overtime. Boettger was inactive for the game.

OL Bryan Bulaga (Green Bay Packers, 10th season): Bulaga and the Packers have the second seed in the NFC playoffs and will host Seattle on Sunday night. POTW = 1.

WR Nick Easley (Buffalo Bills, 1st season): Easley is on the Buffalo practice squad.

C James Ferentz (New England Patriots, 4th season): Ferentz and the Patriots were upset by Tennessee 20-13 in New England on Saturday night to end their season. Ferentz only played in three plays for the special teams. POTW = 1.

TE Parker Hesse (Tennessee Titans, 1st season): Hesse is on the Titans practice squad.

LB Anthony Hitchens (Kansas City Chiefs, 6th season): Hitchens and the Chiefs have the second seed in the AFC and will host Houston on Sunday afternoon. POTW honors = 1.

S Amani Hooker (Tennessee Titans, 1st season): Hooker and the Titans knocked off the defending champion Patriots on Saturday night to advance in the playoffs. The Titans will travel to Baltimore to play the top-seeded Ravens on Saturday night. Hooker had one tackle in the victory.

DT Jaleel Johnson (Minnesota Vikings, 3rd season): Johnson and the Vikings upset the Saints 26-20 in overtime. Minnesota moves on to play at San Francisco on Saturday afternoon. Johnson had one tackle for loss in the victory. POTW honors = 1.

Final Stats for Eliminated Hawkeyes

OL Austin Blythe (Los Angeles Rams, 4th season): Blythe and the Rams finished their season at 9-7 as they defeated Arizona 31-24. With a high payroll and no first round pick in 2020, the Rams will have to be creative to keep up with San Francisco and Seattle. Blythe played and started in 15 games on the season while drawing just three penalties on the year. Blythe is a free agent for 2020.

RB James Butler (Oakland Raiders, 2nd season): Butler was on the Raiders practice squad in 2019.

DE Adrian Clayborn (Atlanta Falcons, 9th season): Clayborn and the Falcons finished 7-9 on the season. Clayborn played in 15 games recording 18 tackles which included four sacks. He also forced two fumbles. Clayborn is a free agent for 2020.

Jacksonville Jaguars v Atlanta Falcons

DT Mike Daniels (Detroit Lions, 8th season): Daniels and the Lions finished 3-12-1 on the season. Daniels was put on the IR on December 16 and was only able to play in nine games for the Lions. His ten tackles and one sack were probably not what the Lions had in mind when they gave him an $8 million contract. Daniels is a free agent for 2020.

C James Daniels (Chicago Bears, 2nd season): Daniels and the Bears finished the season at 8-8. Daniels played and started in all 16 games for the Bears as he played both center and guard. Daniels was called for four holding penalties on the season. There are still two years left on his rookie contract.

DT Carl Davis (Jacksonville Jaguars, 5th season): Davis and the Jaguars ended the season at 6-10. Davis played in two games for Jacksonville getting one tackle. He also played one game in his time with Indianapolis. Davis is a free agent for 2020.

TE Noah Fant (Denver Broncos, 1st season): Fant and the Broncos finished the season at 7-9. Fant played in all 16 games for Denver and ended the season with 40 catches for 562 yards and three touchdowns. Fant was the number 20 pick in the 2019 draft and has three years remaining on his rookie contract. POTW =2.

S Jake Gervase (Los Angeles Rams, 1st season): Gervase and the Rams finished 9-7 and missed the playoffs. Gervase only saw action in two games this season and didn’t record any stats. Gervase signed a two year contract in 2019 so he has one year remaining.

TE T.J. Hockenson (Detroit Lions, 1st season): Hockenson and the Lions finished 3-12-1 on the season. After suffering a significant ankle injury, Hockenson was only able to play in 12 games but during his short time was able to catch 32 balls for 367 yards and two touchdowns. The eighth overall pick in 2019 still has three years left on his rookie deal. POTW honors = 1.

Detroit Lions v Green Bay Packers

LB Josey Jewell (Denver Broncos, 2nd season): Jewell and the Broncos finished the season at 7-9. Jewell dealt with some injuries over the season but still managed to play in 15 games for Denver. He recorded 38 tackles and 1.5 sacks for the year. Jewell still has two years remaining on his rookie contract. POTW honors = 1.

CB Desmond King (Los Angeles Chargers, 3rd season): King and the Chargers finished their season at a disappointing 5-11 and will have the sixth pick in the upcoming draft. On the season King played in 15 games and had 50 tackles including 2.5 sacks. King also was featured in the return game and he returned 16 kicks for 331 yards and 21 punts for 118 yards and a touchdown. King will be entering the final year of his four year rookie contract in 2020. POTW honors = 1.

LB Christian Kirksey (Cleveland Browns, 6th season): Kirksey and the Browns finished their year with an under-performing record of 6-10. Kirksey was hurt early in the season and only managed to play in two games for the Browns. On the season he recorded 11 tackles and he has two years remaining on his contract though he potentially could be a salary cap casualty.

LS Casey Kreiter (Denver Broncos, 4th season): Kreiter and the Broncos finished the season at 7-9. For those keeping track at home, Kreiter snapped the ball 146 times for the special teams unit, down two snaps from 2018. Kreiter is a free agent for 2020 but I imagine he will be re-signed by Denver.

DB Greg Mabin (Cincinnati Bengals, 3rd season): Mabin and the Bengals won their last game of the year against Cleveland and still finished with a record of just 2-14. They own the top pick in the draft and are expected to take LSU qb Joe Burrow. Mabin was only active for nine games in 2019 and most of his time was spent on special teams. For the season he had just one tackle and one pass deflection. Mabin is a free agent for 2020.

OL Matt Nelson (Detroit Lions, 1st season): Nelson was on the practice squad for Detroit.

LB Anthony Nelson (Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 1st season): Nelson and the Buccaneers finished their season at 7-9. The rookie battled injuries and only managed to see action in nine games. During that time he totaled eight tackles, one pass deflection, and a forced fumble. Nelson has three years left on his rookie deal.

OL Brandon Scherff (Washington Redskins, 5th season): Scherff and the Redskins finished their season at 3-13. Scherff only was able to play in 11 games due to injury but managed to be named to the Pro Bowl for his efforts. Scherff is a free agent and should be looking for a big payday in 2020.

Custom Taron Johnson Jersey Large

Taron Johnson and Joey Banks go way back.

“It was in Pop Warner, but we weren’t friends. We didn’t become friends until probably high school,” said Johnson, Buffalo Bills cornerback.

“We played for two different Pop Warner teams growing up. Obviously I played for the better team. We got close in high school. We started training with the same group of guys in high school and it just grew from there, the relationship just grew from there,” said Banks, University at Buffalo safety.

Growing beyond their home of Sacramento, California as they continued their football careers.

“When I was getting recruited I always said that I’d probably end up somewhere where I never expected and Buffalo for sure somewhere I never expected to be,” said Banks.

Banks transferred to UB in 2018, a few months before the NFL Draft.

“I was in the cafeteria, the student café, eating, watching the draft with some other teammates and Buffalo was up on the clock and I seen Taron Johnson go across the screen. I said, ‘Hold on, what? He’s coming to Buffalo too?’ It was just crazy how it happened. I didn’t believe it, but I was super proud of him,” said Banks.

“When it happened it felt kind of unreal already and then it wasn’t until probably about 30 minutes later I’m like, ‘Oh, Joey, we’re going to be in the same area.’ That just made me even more excited to come,” said Johnson.

That bond tested during their first fall in town, both fighting injuries, but leaning on each other to work through them.

“Just control the things that you can control. Don’t worry about the stuff that’s going on on the outside because that can play with your mind and might put negative thoughts into your head or you might second guess yourself sometimes. But if you just focus on controlling the things that you can control, and helping him and him helping me get through that, it kind of helps,” said Banks.

“I know just talking to him that what happened to me, yeah, having surgery, OK, but I can definitely get through it. I can definitely come out a better player, a better person, when I’m healthy again. Even when I was out five weeks when I pulled my hamstring, even with that, he just helped me stay in it, ‘Just keep focusing and control what you can control.’ That was the biggest thing with me, him being in my ear talking to me about that because for a while when I was hurt, it was just kind of messing with my head a little bit,” said Johnson.

Both bounced back this season, with Johnson back in the slot for 10 games with the Bills and Banks a first-team All-MAC corner for the Bulls.

A perfect finale that Johnson believes should bring Banks right where he is once again.

“I told a couple scouts, though. I already told a couple scouts that he’s a dog. I’m not just saying this. I’ve watched him play since seventh grade, sixth-seventh grade and he can play in the NFL. I know that. And hopefully I have the opportunity to see him, whether he’s on this team or he’s on some other team and has an opportunity to play,” said Johnson.

Just like Pop Warner back in Sacramento.

Custom Siran Neal Jersey Large

Barnburner NFL playoff games between Houston and Buffalo are apparently the rule.

In a roller-coaster AFC wild-card game, the Texans outlasted the Bills 22-19 on Saturday afternoon at NRG Stadium.

Ka’imi Fairbairn made a 28-yard field goal with 3:20 left to send the Texans to the next round.

The Texans (11-6) will next play at Kansas City (12-4) at 2:05 p.m. Central time next Sunday in the divisional round. The Texans beat the Chiefs 31-24 on Oct. 13 at Arrowhead Stadium.

For Houston’s long-suffering NFL fans, Saturday’s game was particularly sweet payback 27 years and one day after the Oilers blew a 35-3 lead in a 41-38 overtime loss at Buffalo in 1993 that remains the biggest collapse in NFL playoff history.

Turnabout was fair play, with the Texans overcoming a 16-point deficit during the second half. In eerie fashion, this game played out just like the one from 27 years ago: the visitors took a double-digit lead in the second half, the home team rallied to take the lead only to see the guests force extra time before the hosts prevailed in overtime.

On the third possession of overtime, the Texans finally broke the stalemate. On second and 6 from the Bills’ 44, Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson bounced off a blitz by Bills safety Siran Neal and also escaped a tackle attempt from linebacker Matt Milano.

Watson then found reserve running back Taiwan Jones for a 34-yard catch and run to the Bills’ 10. Fairbairn booted the winning field goal on the next play to keep the Bills (10-7) searching for their first playoff win since 1995.

Earlier in the drive, Watson, who finished 20-of-25 for 247 yards with one touchdown pass, converted a third-and-18 situation at the Texans’ 19 with a pass to running back Duke Johnson to maintain possession.

The Texans had a chance to put the game away, but Buffalo stopped Watson on a fourth-down quarterback sneak at the Bills’ 30 with 1:16 left. Texans coach Bill O’Brien eschewed a 47-yard field goal attempt that, if successful, would’ve forced the Bills to score a touchdown to win.

Given another chance, Buffalo quarterback Josh Allen drove his team to the Texans’ 29 in 11 plays. and Stephen Hauschka then made his fourth field goal of the game, a 47-yarder with five seconds left, to force overtime.

Watson gave the Texans their first lead of the game after they got the ball at their own 26-yard line with 9:29 left in the fourth quarter trailing 16-11.

On the second play of the drive, Watson found DeAndre Hopkins for 41 yards up the left sideline to put the Texans at the Bills’ 28.

Six plays later, Watson hit Carlos Hyde coming out of the backfield for a 6-yard touchdown pass to give the Texans their first lead. Watson then found Hopkins for the 2-point conversion and a 19-16 advantage with 4:42 remaining.

Trailing 16-0 late in the third quarter, the Texans finally put together a scoring drive. They went 75 yards in nine plays, with Watson scoring on a 20-yard designed run in which he carried Bills defenders into the end zone the final few yards with 1:33 left in the third.

Watson then ran in the ensuing 2-point conversion to draw the Texans within 16-8.

On the Bills’ next possession, Whitney Mercilus forced an Allen fumble at midfield that Jacob Martin recovered. The Texans were able to turn that into a 41-yard field goal by Fairbairn to get within 16-11 with 10:59 left in the fourth quarter.

The Bills seized the early momentum during the first half, scoring on their first drive with some bold play-calling.

That included a 42-yard run by Allen to the Houston 20 on a play in which Texans linebacker Brennan Scarlett inexplicably had his back turned to the line of scrimmage at the snap.

Two plays later, wide receiver John Brown threw a 16-yard touchdown pass to an uncovered Allen leaking out of the left side of the formation for a 7-0 lead with 11:41 to go.

The Texans drove into Buffalo territory on each of their first two drives only to punt.

The first possession saw O’Brien challenge a non-call on third down for pass interference only to lose. He then eschewed a 55-yard field goal attempt on fourth down to punt.

The Bills then tacked on two 40-yard field goals by Hauschka during the second quarter, with the second coming with nine seconds left in the half.

As they left the field, the Texans were booed off the field, as they were during home playoff losses in 2015 and 2018.

After Tre’Davious White forced and Tremaine Edmunds recovered a Hopkins fumble at the Texans’ 38 early in the third quarter, the Bills turned it into another Hauschka field goal, this one from 38 yards with 6:08 left, to up their lead to 16-0.
