Sunday was a uncomfortable viewing experience. After the Bills marched down the field on their first drive for a touchdown, picking up big chunks of yardage on the way, it seemed like the table was set for them to put their foot on the neck of the Bengals early. Combine that with AJ Green’s early exit and a weak turnout from Bengals fans and I was giddy. I thought the Bills were in for a romp.

Not so fast. Continue reading

A Moment Stolen in Seattle

In another world, I’d spend this column writing about how Tyrod Taylor just played the best game of his career. How he patiently was able to break down the defense taking what the they gave to him all night. How he did it against the league’s best defense on the road on Monday Night Football. I’d write about how the Bills offensive line spent the night shoving around Seattle’s defense. I’d write about how LeSean McCoy looked healthy and special again. About how Robert Woods just dominated the vaunted Seattle secondary as a lead receiver and put up 10 catches and 162 yards. I’d write about how the Bills offense finally looked like the embodiment of an efficient ground and pound offense we’ve all been waiting for. About how the defense, after giving up 28 points in the first half only gave up 3 in the second half and got pressure to Russell Wilson. About how Lorenzo Alexander just got his 10th sack in the 9th game of the season. Or about how Shaq Lawson just got another sack and looks really good. But I’m not. Because the officials just sucked the life out of the best Bills performance in years. Continue reading

Troubling Trends Loom Large In A Bad Bills Loss in Miami

At no point during Sunday’s game against Miami did it feel like the Bills were playing well. The offensive line was getting whipped by Ndamukong Suh, Cameron Wake and Mario Williams.  The defensive line was being caved in by the left side of Miami’s offensive line, and Jay Ajayi was getting into the second level of the Bills defense and running over defenders with ease. Combine all of this with Ryan Tannehill not making any mistakes and the fact the Bills were outgained by almost 200 yards and it’s a recipe for a Bills blowout loss. And yet with 20 minutes of game time left, the Bills led 17-6. To make the playoffs in the NFL, you have to acknowledge you’re not going to play well all the time; sometimes you’re even going to be outplayed badly; but you still have to be able to find ways to win. That’s what the good teams do, win when they’re not supposed to. For a while it appeared that the Bills would be able to escape with a win but Jay Ajayi and a bad day from the offense was too much too overcome. However there was a way the Bills could’ve won this game, by paying attention to detail in the margins. The reason they weren’t able to pull it off was due to a couple of troubling trends.
