The Buffalo Bills were blown up Tuesday night by the Tennessee Titans, who probably knocked him down by a peg or two in the national conversation. With the Kansas City chiefs in six days, the Bills can’t really focus on what went wrong against Tennessee. but I can.
Here are my takeaways from the game:
Mistakes crush the bill
The Titans had touchdown drives from 12, 16, 18 and 30 yards tonight. (Thanks for yards per yard)
28 scores and 76 yards.
Big special teams play and a differential blocking return for the Titans allowed him to waltz in for an easy score. With 5:39 left in the game, the Bill Titans were outscoring 310 to 292, but Tennessee was up 28-16. He only makes mistakes. The Buffalo was considered the team that practiced and was ready to go. A full practice was performed in Tennessee in 12 days. The buffalo made mistakes. And then at the top was the cherry kickoff return with 3:49 remaining in the game.
Sixth minute drive in fourth gain Tennessee
With 18 points remaining 18 minutes, Biles took 6:29 to score a touchdown. great. One touch. But he ran the ball and did not rush as quickly. (My twitter thread here is in real time.) They took too much time, period. On the ensuing Titans drive, the Titans went 70 yards. This has at least gone into the bill of time. Tennessee was trying to hit the clock and they snatched 6:03 off the clock before scoring their touchdown. The Buffalo needed to score three or four times in the final 17 minutes and the offense only had two offensive drives in the final 17 minutes.
listen. We knew this was going to happen. Patrick Mahomes and Aaron Rodgers and every great QB comes back to Earth. Bruce Nolan spoke at length: Josh Allen’s step back game is considered inevitable. He was 10 to 21 at the half with one interception (from the hands of his wide receiver). but. He was 16/20 in the second half. He nevertheless made a terrible decision on his second interception in the third quarter. it happens. We will not throw the baby out with the bath water. Median regression is expected, but it occurred in prime time.
Tarson johnson needs to change this offense
Johnson is a keen dealer in the run game, but man is he not good at coverage. He allowed a third and 19 conversions at the end of the first quarter and is the latest in a long list of bad games for a young player. Early in the second, he let Bills have another big game in the goal line. The Bills are required to draft or sign their replacements in the slot this year. I am not sure that Saran Neil will be completely better this year.
Bais made a dent in the second quarter, but Lacey was facing miscreants when he approached the ball. For at least the third time this year we have seen a bad catch from Bojorquez, according to Jay Feely. CBS analyst and former NFL kicker would know. Earlier in the season, there was at least one miss of bass. The lasers should be away from the kicker.
I mean, he had the ball as 74 yards (a penalty) to flip the field at the end of the first half, so he has some redeeming qualities. But he still gave his coverage on his second punt after returning 40 yards of punt.
Devin Singleri and Bills’ offense is not great, Bob
Twice in the first 7 minutes, Singletary was cut off before meeting him in the backfield. Seven runs for 11 yards from Singletary in the first half. Singletary finishes for 2.3 yards per carry with 11 yards on 25 carries. This has been a recurring theme through our postgame responses, and it was clearly one tonight as the Bills continued to go to the run game despite being down big in the fourth quarter.
This defense depends on the beginning, and is burnt by it (in the passing game) …
Matt Milano’s backup. Backup of Travadius White. When Tremaine Edmunds was down earlier in the year. What is Bill’s plan when the player goes down? For the past several years they have been lucky that it did not happen, but it is 2020. And 2020 comes for everyone. AJ Klein has gotten so bad that they went to Tyler Dodson. They are playing players on the practice team at linebacker. He debuted Cam Lewis, 2019 UDFA tonight.
But the run defense was against Henry
Wow. Really a great effort by the frontman. Derrick Henry had 9 carries for 24 yards in the first half and 19 for 57 and a touchdown. Biles dropped the Titans to the ground. Ryan Tannehill is free (that’s the case) for four rushes and 42 yards plus a TD,
Proceed with third and longer
Here are the first two drives on offense:
- Third and 4: Josh Allen hits Andre Robert at the hands of 19 (Deflected, INT)
- TJ Yeldon dive for 3 and 1: 3 yards.
- Left 3 and 13 with 9:30 left: Gabriel Davis for 15
- Third and 7: Josh Allen misses a DB Blitz, juices a LB, and gets 8 yards.
3 and 10: Gab Davis catches a touchdown!Invalid Shift?
- Third and 15: Andre Roberts gets 16 after Allen escapes pressure and throws a dart
Then during the second quarter, it was 3 and 9 – Allen was pushed to 11 digs with pressure on his face and could not be stepped on. 10 on the third and with 4:47 in the third: 15 yards to the Diggs. Great pressure to Alan.
I’m not going to count Alan at number three, and he proves why once again. The man goes away with sticks and I love it and don’t want to change it.
