ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — The Buffalo Bills have begun addressing their offensive line needs by signing Spencer Long to a three-year contract.
The addition made on Tuesday comes a week after the New York Jets cut Long to free up nearly $6.5 million from next season's salary cap.
The 28-year-old Long has 44 starts in 53 career games over five seasons. He spent his first four seasons in Washington, which selected him in the third round of the 2014 draft out of Nebraska.
BALTIMORE (AP) — In their first game under defensive coordinator Don Martindale, the Baltimore Ravens couldn't draw up a better scenario.
Buffalo Bills quarterback Nathan Peterman will make his third career start Sunday.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Yannick Ngakoue says whatever Buffalo Bills guard Richie Incognito was trying to accomplish didn't work.

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Richie Incognito is so accustomed to people counting out the Bills this season, the veteran guard isn't fazed by questions regarding injured running back LeSean McCoy's uncertain status for Buffalo's AFC wild-card playoff game at Jacksonville on Sunday.
The Buffalo Bills are in the NFL playoffs.
No, we're not kidding.
They needed some last-minute help from Cincinnati, which stunned Baltimore 31-27 after Buffalo had won at Miami 22-16 Sunday. Those results lifted the Bills into the final AFC wild-card spot and a visit to Jacksonville next Sunday.
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — The Buffalo Bills will be without cornerback E.J. Gaines for Sunday's game against the Oakland Raiders because of a hamstring injury.

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Like most of the players at the Pro Bowl, Richie Incognito hears the criticism.
The game lacks intensity. There's not enough drama. It's not real NFL football.
But Incognito, a Buffalo Bills guard, is like the vast majority of the 88 players invited to this all-star gathering Sunday night. He sees the Pro Bowl more as a celebration of achievement and as a way to thank the fans.
A look at some of the reaction around the sports world as Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th president of the United States on Friday:
"Today is the first day on the road to Making America Great Again #Inauguration2017"

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Once LeSean McCoy eluded two defenders and cut up the right sideline with nothing but the end zone in front of him, the Bills' running back had time to glance up at the big screen and start celebrating.
"You can just hear the crowd yelling," McCoy said, recalling his 75-yard touchdown run on the first play from scrimmage in the second half. "You feel the guy (behind you) and then you look on the screen and I know I've got him beat."

MIAMI (AP) — Richie Incognito says Jonathan Martin reached out to him several times in the aftermath of the bullying scandal that sabotaged the Miami Dolphins' 2013 season, but Incognito has no interest in talking.

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Guard Richie Incognito knew LeSean McCoy's right knee was fine when the Bills running back was already gabbing in Buffalo's locker room during halftime.
"As long as Shady's talking, he's fine," Incognito said.
If knocking knees with 49ers linebacker Nick Bellore late in the first half couldn't slow down the player nicknamed, "Shady," what chance did the 49ers porous run defense have?
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Bills offensive guard Richie Incognito defiantly asked the team's doubters to check back next week before anyone starts writing off Buffalo's season following the latest jolt of distraction.
"We're not rushing around like the building's on fire," Incognito said. "I think we have enough veteran presence and enough talent on this roster to overcome this hump. And we'll talk next week if it's a house fire or not."
