Through two weeks of the playoffs Josh is 49/72 (68%) for 530 yards, 3 TDs and no INTs.  He also has 54 yards rushing and a TD.  Mistake-free football against VERY good defenses who know the Bills don

McDermott is done talking to the media for the week isn't he?

 

Just a Monday and Wednesday press conference. 

 

So other than Friday's practice report and practice squad call-ups, there will be no further updates. 

He usually talks on Friday morning I thought

Mahomes is playing for sure.  Maybe he will favor the foot a little bit but his arm and brain will be fine.

 

I like the Bills chances but they really have a lot to overcome here.  It's not talked about much...but this is KC's third straight AFC Championship game.  They're not going to be nervous or tight.  Our guys?  I don't know, they've never been here.

Heard a cool stat:

 

The four remaining playoff teams are first, second, third, and fifth in passing offense.

 

I guess having a QB who is a competent passer is kind of important.....right Ravens and Lamar Jackson fans??

Don't love Davis being a full no-go two days in a row. Also, Beasley was not on the injury report yesterday at all, but was limited today. Tough to practice passing concepts with WR1 WR3 and WR4 shelved. 

Yeah I'm not too concerned myself. I think it's likely just rest. He looked a little hobbled in the Ravens game, however he played through the whole game. So I think they are resting him up and hopefully it will be enough that he will be at least better against the Chiefs than Ravens.

If Mahomes plays, the bills should play an ultra aggressive style on 4th down and go for it wayyy more often than they normally would. 4th and 4 from their own 30? Go for it. 

 

I know this is way outside what the analytics say to do in a standard game, but the reason is simple. The chiefs offense are far from a standard offense. It makes way wayyyy more sense to pull a strategy like this if the opposing offense is gonna score touchdowns on a high % of their drives, regardless where they start the drive from. Which the Chiefs are very very likely to do. So we should give ourselves max chance of putting points on the board, and not worry about what kind of field position we're giving them, since it doesn't matter that much vs an offense this potent. You could argue that they should implement the same strategy vs us.

Don't see it that way....Chiefs have not won by more than 6 points in last 9 games...

Agreed.  McDermott has been appropriately aggressive on fourth down all season.  No reason to change anything...

Groy, Mills, and Miller were pretty bad, too....and Teller had not developed yet.

I'm still amazed that Josh Allen survived behind that 2018 O-Line.

The Bills average more ppg than KC.

Teller was a rookie that had a hard time on the field in 2018 and was even worse in 2019.

 

And yet people wanna crucify Beane for getting rid of him.

 

Man, 20/20 hindsight is beautiful.

It certainly is.

 

After the Bills got lambasted at the start of the 2018 season and we went 0-2, fans were calling for the heads of McDermott & Beane. :lol:

 

It's fun being a Bills fan.

everyone is saying, 'oh do you really want to get into a shoot out with the chiefs? shouldnt you run the ball and try to be balanced?' blah blah blah

 

how else do you beat the chiefs asides from trying to get into a shootout and outscore them? do people really think a 100 yd game from singletary is going to win the bills the game?

 

its going to take a 350 yd performance from JA17 with everyone getting the ball.

We simply just don’t do anything else except pass.
Why change that now? I agree 100% get into a shoot out.
 

42-37 Bills

Watkins is still a decoy till this day. 

The thing he said that scares me is that there needs to be more balance on offense and that Saturday against the Ravens was way out of balance. 

 

I hope the Bills don't overcorrect Sunday and go conservative. 

 

They have to throw. A lot. 

Don’t listen to a thing these guys say during the week. It’s all smoke and mirrors. Martindale let it be known he was going to bring the pressure and then the Ravens sat back all game and rushed 4.
