1. Bleacher Report calls this rookie a hidden gem for Buffalo

Bleacher Report released its list of one hidden gem on every NFL team. For the Bills, they picked the rookie wide receiver Gabriel Davis who is starting to make a name for himself with his play on the field.

Buffalo Bills: WR Gabriel Davis

Thanks to the maturation of quarterback Josh Allen, the Buffalo Bills have one of the more prolific passing attacks in the NFL. While Allen, Stefon Diggs, Cole Beasley and John Brown headline the attack, rookie fourth-round pick Gabriel Davis has been a sneaky good clutch contributor.

The former UCF standout has caught all seven passes thrown his way for 103 yards, four first downs, and a touchdown. He had four catches for 81 yards in Week 3 alone. He also drew a pass interference penalty on 4th-and-8 to help set up Buffalo's game-winning touchdown.

"He's just done an incredible job to this point being ready when his number's been called," head coach Sean McDermott said, per Jay Skurski of the Buffalo News.

While Allen has plenty of other pass-catchers he can go to, don't be shocked if he starts calling Davis' number on a more consistent basis.

2. Cuomo working to bring Bills fans back into the stadium

Before the start of the season, the Buffalo Bills released a statement saying that there would be no fans in Bills Stadium for the first two games of the season. With those games having been played the Bills put out another statement on Tuesday, saying fans will not be able to attend Bills home games for the foreseeable future. On Wednesday, New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo said he is working with the NFL Commissioner and the Buffalo Bills and he is very eager to get fans back in the stadium. 

"It's something we're looking at, Cuomo stated. "I spoke with the commissioner, and I understand the plans they're working on…The question is getting in and out of the stadium, without it being a "mass gathering," or without having that crowding. That becomes more of a question of the design of the particular stadium, some stadiums have more egress than others. And I understand, I'm a big Bills fan myself as you know, and we're excited about the season. So, I'm 100% eager to get fans back into games but I'm going to go out and meet with the team's leadership group and tour the stadium. We have some engineers looking at the situation now and we'll see if there's a way that we can work it out. I'm eager to work it out, but with safety being a complicating factor."

3. Allen on his growth throughout the offseason

Josh Allen has been off to a hot start this season, setting new achievements and franchise records game after game. It seems this is just the start for Allen as he continues to build up chemistry with the weapons around him. Allen touched on the growth that he has seen in himself this offseason, and what has attributed to his early success in 2020. 

"One, the patience that the coaching staff has had with me. The things that we've worked on in the offseason with Jordan Palmer, coach Dorsey, Shea (Tierney), and Daboll. I really think that diving into the playbook as much as we did, I really feel like I know the answers to the questions. I wouldn't say all the time, but I feel like I got a good grasp of what our offense is doing. I think the better I play, the more I know, and the more comfortable I feel, it's just going to cycle. I got to stay on top of it and understand what the defense is doing. I understand that it's not really about what they do, it's about how we react to what they do. So, I think that's where we've progressed in that area but we're going to have to keep progressing as teams start watching film and find new ways to try to slow us down. Whatever the case may be, we have to be prepared for every situation."
