LeSean McCoy leads Bills to easy win over 49ers

As it turns out, it doesn’t matter who quarterbacks the 49ers. But as it turns out, it might matter who’s calling the plays for the Bills. The Bills won their fourth in a row (all since they fired offensive coordinator Greg Roman), beating the 49ers 45-16 to improve to 4-2. They’ve topped 30 points in…

Colin Kaepernick gets booed prior to his first start of season

Colin Kaepernick continued to kneel through the national anthem, and Bills fans booed him as he did it (so much for showing respect for the anthem). But once the game started, the change in quarterback didn’t change the results for the 49ers offense. Kaepernick overthrew an open Torrey Smith for what would have been a…

PFT’s Week Six picks

Last week, MDS and yours truly disagreed on none of the 14 games played. Maybe we should have. We both went 7-7, continuing a not-so-stellar showing when it comes to prognosticating outcomes in 2016. The only good news? I managed to accomplish a rare hole-in-one, accurately predicting the final score of the Jets-Steelers game, which Pittsburgh won,…
