What if the Bills Logo Was Made in the Likeness of President Elect Donald Trump?

Donald Trump

Like it or not, next month Donald Trump will be the new President of the United States, and one thing that can’t be denied is it’s going to be an interesting four years in our country.

There’s been plenty of fun poked at the President elect, and one site – Uproxx, has taken it upon themselves to design every NFL logo in the make of our President elect.

Check out what they think the logo of the Bills will look like made in the likeness of Trump!

Bills Place WR Percy Harvin on the Non-Football Illness List

Percy Harvin

Today the Bills put wide out Percy Harvin on the non-football illness list, basically meaning that not only his season is over but likely his career.

Here’s the story from Pro Football Weekly:

Harvin, 28, was lured out of retirement back in November, appearing to be fully healthy. Though, through two games, the former first-round pick has two receptions for six yards and no touchdowns. The Bills report his migraine headaches have returned, something that has plagued his eight-year career.

“He was doing whatever he could to try to play, but I don’t know if that was in his best interest,” said head coach Rex Ryan via the official team website. “We were trying to make sure he’s well.”

Bills Blow 24-9 Lead; Fall to Raiders in Oakland 38-24

Buffalo Bills v Oakland Raiders

Derek Carr threw for 260 yards and two touchdowns to rally the Oakland Raiders to their biggest comeback in 16 years with a 38-24 victory over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.

After falling behind 24-9 following touchdowns on the first two drives of the second half for Buffalo (6-6), the Raiders (10-2) took the game over with 29 straight points and won their sixth straight to remain one game ahead of Kansas City in the tough AFC West.

Oakland scored touchdowns on three straight drives, including scoring strikes from Carr to Michael Crabtree and Amari Cooper for his sixth fourth-quarter comeback of the season. This was the biggest comeback for the Raiders since overcoming a 21-point deficit to Indianapolis to win 38-31 on Sept. 10, 2000.

The defense also tightened by forcing three straight three-and-outs and then getting a turnover when Khalil Mack deflected Tyrod Taylor’s pass that Nate Allen intercepted . Oakland took over at the 16 and put the game away with Latavius Murray’s second touchdown run of the game to make it 38-24 on Carr’s 2-point conversion pass to Seth Roberts.

Bills Win Second Straight; Top Jaguars at Home After Slow Start 28-21

Tyrod Taylor

LeSean McCoy scored twice, including a career-best 75-yard run, and the Bills won their second in a row by beating the Jacksonville Jaguars 28-21 on Sunday.

Tyrod Taylor’s 16-yard touchdown pass to Justin Hunter with 10:46 remaining put the Bills ahead for good during a second half in which the teams traded the lead five times. Taylor also scored on a 7-yard run in helping to keep Buffalo in the playoff hunt.

The Bills (6-5) won for the second straight week when trailing at halftime after doing so just once last season.

Buffalo trailed the Jaguars 7-6 after two quarters on Sunday, and overcame a two-point deficit in a 16-12 win at Cincinnati last week.

Bills Coach Rex Ryan Peeved About Sexist Taunt Aimed at Assistant Kathryn Smith

Kathryn Smith

As if losing wasn’t frustrating enough, Bills coach Rex Ryan has a bone to pick with Seahawks coach Pete Carroll and a Seattle fan who taunted Buffalo assistant Kathryn Smith,the Associated Press reports.

Ryan rallied to the defense of Smith, the NFL’s first full-time female assistant, who was the target of a sexist taunt.

Rochester’s WROC-TV filmed a male fan yelling “Waitress!” at Smith and asking her to get him a soda.

Ryan called what the fan yelled as being “ridiculous” and “classless.”

The coach also responded sarcastically when informed Carroll was unhappy the Bills coach called Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman “an ass.” Speaking on a conference call Tuesday, Ryan joked he forgot to check with Carroll first about what his appropriate response should’ve been.

Sherman caused a stir after making a play on the Bills sideline by exchanging words with Ryan in the second half of Buffalo’s 31-25 loss on Monday night.
