Bills Defensive Backs Warn the Patriots: Don’t Run Through Our Pregame Drill Again

Bills Patriots

Several Bills defensive backs said they will retaliate if a Patriots player runs through their pregame drills again Sunday when the two AFC East opponents meet at New Era Field, Mike Rodak of reports.

Bills safeties Robert Blanton and Aaron Williams and cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman were each fined for a pregame scuffle Oct. 2 that erupted when Bills players felt “disrespected” by Patriots quarterback Jacoby Brissett jogging through their warm-up drills at Gillette Stadium. No Patriots players were fined.

“It’s gonna be the same reaction that they got last time,” Robey-Coleman said Wednesday. “There ain’t no other way around that situation, you know? Just respect each other’s sideline and move on.”

When Robey-Coleman, who was fined $9,115 for his role in the altercation, was asked whether he would be comfortable being fined again, he responded, “Yes.”

Cornerback Stephon Gilmore was not involved in the Week 4 fight but said players would retaliate again under the same circumstances Sunday.

“Of course,” Gilmore said. “We’re not gonna let nobody push us around. You know what I’m saying? We’re gonna play smart. We know them guys like to try to get under your skin and make you react a certain way. We’re gonna try to take it in between the lines and play good football.”

Robey-Coleman does not believe that quarterback Tom Brady, who was suspended for the team’s previous meeting, will run through Buffalo’s pregame drills as Brissett did.

“We know that ain’t gonna happen,” Robey-Coleman said Wednesday. “Not in the New Era [Field]. I ain’t even need to hype myself up like it’s gonna happen. I ain’t worried about that.

“I don’t expect [Brady] to do that. Tom is a pro, and he goes about his business well. I’m pretty sure that he’s not even gonna give us that ammunition.”

Bills Can’t Stop Ajayi; Lose to Dolphins in Miami 28-25

Buffalo Bills v Miami Dolphins

Jay Ajayi tied an NFL record by surpassing 200 yards rushing for the second game in a row, helping the Dolphins rally past the Bills 28-25 Sunday.

Ajayi rushed for 214 yards in 29 carries after totaling 204 yards a week earlier in a win over Pittsburgh. He scored on a 4-yard run, and busted a 53-yarder when the Dolphins were pinned at their 3 and trailing in the fourth quarter.

The Dolphins (3-4) used an extra lineman much of the time to clear big holes for Ajayi, who tied the NFL record for consecutive 200-yard games held by O.J. Simpson, Earl Campbell and Ricky Williams.

Miami overcame an 11-point deficit with 16 minutes left to end a four-game winning streak by the Bills (4-3) and beat them for only the second time in their past seven meetings.

Bills RB LeSean McCoy ‘Day to Day’ with Hamstring Injury

LeSean McCoy

LeSean McCoy is not present for the start of Bills practice, and a person with direct knowledge of the running back’s hamstring injury told the Associated Press the player is considered “day to day.”

The person spoke to The AP on the condition of anonymity Thursday because the Bills have not revealed that information a day after McCoy left practice complaining of tightness in one of his hamstrings.

Coach Rex Ryan is scheduled to speak following Thursday’s session.

The Bills (4-2) have won four straight, and play at AFC East rival Miami (2-4) on Sunday.

McCoy is second in the NFL with 587 yards rushing, and has scored seven of Buffalo’s 20 touchdowns.

McCoy Helps Bills Run over 49’ers 45-16 for Fourth Straight Win

San Francisco 49ers v Buffalo Bills

LeSean McCoy scored three times and the Buffalo Bills extended their winning streak to four with a 45-16 victory over San Francisco and new starter Colin Kaepernick Sunday.

McCoy had 140 yards rushing and shook off what appeared to be a frightening injury to his right knee late in the second quarter. Tyrod Taylor threw two touchdown passes in helping Buffalo win four straight for the first time since the start of the 2008 season.

Kaepernick provided the 49ers a spark in his first start in nearly a year. Blaine Gabbert was benched following a 33-21 loss to Arizona.

Kaepernick finished 13 of 29 for 187 yards, including a 53-yard touchdown pass to Torrey Smith. But San Francisco (1-5) couldn’t finish drives, settling for three field goals by Phil Dawson, in losing its fifth straight game.
