Joe B: 7 Observations from Bills - Patriots

(WKBW) — The Buffalo Bills came into their matchup with the New England Patriots with a head of steam. Over their past four games the Bills nearly came away with a victory in all of them, and considering the Patriots recent two-game losing streak, there was a slight hope for some competitiveness on the road.
 
In the end, the Bills found their efforts sink with the lack of overall talent and depth that has plagued them for much of the season. When a play was needed, not a single player stepped up when the game mattered.
 
All in all, it was a frustrating loss 24-12 loss for the Bills, as their record for the season drops to 5-10. How did it all happen?
 
Seven observations from the loss:
 
1) Allen had a shaky start but settled in
2) The skill players let the Bills down repeatedly
3) How the Patriots dominated on the ground
4) Charles Clay being inactive was stark, but not out of nowhere
5) Is LeSean McCoy worth the trouble in 2019?
6) Why the Bills benched Wyatt Teller for two series
7) Kudos to the pass defense
 
Bills MVP: SLB Lorenzo Alexander
- Another high impact game for Lorenzo Alexander, who has been one of the best players for the Bills in 2018 at 35 years old. He needs to be re-signed immediately after the season ends.
 
Bills LVP: WR Isaiah McKenzie
- Eight targets, and only one reception for eight yards. There were other offenders in the passing game, but a pair of big drops and his lack of production throughout the game gets him the honors.
 
Draft Order Update: Regardless of the Sunday and Monday night results, the Bills will finish Week 16 in a tie for 7th overall with the New York Giants.
 
Up Next: The Bills (5-10) wrap up their season at New Era Field against the Miami Dolphins (7-8) on Sunday, December 30 at 1:00 pm.

 

The Buffalo Bills couldn't quite make it three losses in a row for the New England Patriots, losing to the AFC East division champs 24-12, and dropping to 5-10 on the season. Joe Buscaglia and Matthew Fairburn discuss Josh Allen's slow start and his response in-game, the talent surrounding him, the LeSean McCoy conundrum, and some offseason stuff, too. Plus, the awards!

I've heard doctors have started recommending this podcast instead of sleep aids.

The same thing could be said about threads that intimate Matt Barkley is a better QB than Allen in his rookie season no less. ;)

So many missed opportunities for this offense against the toughest division opponent, these young guys really had a chance to solidify themselves on this roster but came up limp. I like Croom going forward at TE, he has big play ability, that fumble near the endzone was a freakin killer but he has really impressed me when given the chance this season, what do you guys think of him? I see at the very least 1 veteran WR like John Brown or Golden Tate but that's wishful thinking since Tate is probably looking for a SB and Brown already chose the ravens over us but we shall see.
