This was a tough one against the best team in the league...but 3 of our 4 losses went down to the 4th quarter 2 going to the final play...we aren’t super bowl caliber yet but man this is the best I’ve felt about this franchise going forward since the Kelly days 

I disagree with title OP...the DEFENSE is legit...the offense is not....

They are a good team but flawed. Allen is a year away. OL still has serious issues. I don't think any of the 5 had a good game today. TE continues to be an issue with no consistency and no dominant play. DL can't generate enough pressure. Run defense is solid and pass defense is ok ( could be spectacular if they had any consistent pass rush).

Did you not watch the game..the oline was absolutely horrible..probably their worst pass blocking game of the year

They were horrid. Absolutely unacceptable.

Lost a close one to the Ravens, as you know.

All I want for Christmas is a 6'4" #1 receiver...and maybe a better pass protecting tackle.

That literally costs millions and millions of dollars, so I don't think anyone you know can afford such a lavish Christmas gift.

Not saying Duke is gonna be the next Randy Moss or anything and there’s a reason he’s been inactive but his hands and size would have helped today

Yes.  Doesn't change my claim.  SF, today, is the best team in the league.

Probably not. He's a fringe roster WR.

You can claim it, but the evidence supports the Ravens over the 49ers.

I agree the team looks good going forward.  As for this year, I have a hard time seeing them putting together a legit run for a Championship, or even being anything other than one and done...

 

Hopefully I am very wrong, and this team can step up to the plate and go get a quality win next week. Steelers shouldn’t be able to move the ball on this defense, if they get anything more than 17 points I will be disappointed. 

 

Allen needs to hit those deep throws.  I know all QBs miss them, but these are difference makers.  They put points on the board, open up the defense, and demoralize the defense.  He has to start hitting these big time throws if they are going to win these tough games. The intermediate stuff is great, and probably the most important component to sustained success, but it doesn’t negate the importance of being able to deliver a consistently catchable deep ball.

I disagree with your second sentence.

 

This game, Philly, NE, are what the playoff game is going to look like.

Allen will struggle against good teams and only good teams play in the playoffs.

 

Folks read too much into the Dallas win.  It was a big win for the franchise as a whole, but don't draw too much from Allen's performance.  Dallas is not a good team and will not be in the playoffs.

 

 

 

Texans and Chiefs are not New England and Baltimore. Chiefs and Texans would be our likely wild card opponents. They both have bad defenses. Which plays into our strength since our defense can limit their offenses and our offense can move the ball against bad defenses. We lose by 6 to the Patriots and 7 to the Ravens, two teams that match up well against us and you don't think we can beat the Texans (or any other team that wins that division) or the Chiefs? Look, it's the playoffs, of course we could lose, but I would fully expect us to have as good a chance as any team playing wild card weekend to win. 

 

Allen struggles against  good defenses. Not surprising. The MVP today didn't exactly move the ball against a good defense either. One short field and one busted coverage. The only teams we might possibly play wild card weekend that have good defenses, Titans and Colts, have suspect offenses. So again, we will have a good chance either way.

If the Ravens lost to the Bills today, would you still say the Ravens are the best in the league because of a win they had last week?

I guess it depends on what you consider legit. The Bills have shown they can play close games with better teams because of their defense. They havent shown they can beat better teams because of their offense.

Legit?  Probably going too far.  This team is still very limited offensively 

 

Baltimore was ripe for a loss.  Good teams win that game at home.  We just aren’t quite there yet.

D is really good. The offense is not. O-Line still needs upgrading and a true #1 receiver. Also need much better accuracy from the QB position.

The Bills are defiantly a good team and playoff worthy.

 

What worries me is that anytime they play a good D the game will be very close and they can easily lose to teams who, overall, aren’t as good.

 

The Bills are a more complete team than the Steelers but that game worries me because they cause turnovers and play very, very good D. Will we see a repeat performance from today’s O?

 

Much like today, one miscue on D could be the nail in the coffin. The O’s deficiencies means the D has to play nearly perfect.

I’m emotional. Allen sucked, the receivers mostly sucked too.  The Ravens are better in every category and we should thank the refs for some of those points today because they kept drives alive that were snuffed out.

 

Oh yeah? What about the non call PI that would’ve put Buffalo deep in the Ravens territory when they were down 1 score? Those types of calls decide games

They won today. They lead the AFC and beat the "best" team in NFC. Pretty clear they are the best team.

Ravens have a ton of quality wins during their winning streak and half of them were blowout victories. I would say, yes, even with a loss today they could easily still be in the running for best in the league.

We are legit if we beat the Steelers in their place and turn historical performance on its head.

 

I'm not going to sing kum ba yah and then turn around and see us blow a spot for the playoffs because once again we can't beat a depleted Steelers team.

 

This season the Bills have exceeded expectations, but our target win must be at Heinz Field.

 

See you there!

A win there wouldve been huge but honestly we cant get that upset today. Proved we could hang with the big boys.

Ravens have a great d and run game and both of those travel. but they are just as likely to get beat in the divisional as they are to get to the super bowl imo. Somebody is going to get a lead and make jackson a thrower

This was my takeaway as well.  The Bills are “playoff caliber” but not “super Bowl caiber”

If you have been a Bills fan for more than a minute, you'd know getting jobbed by the refs is a yearly occurrence and we always have to play through it. ALWAYS
