He missed a wide enough open Diggs in the end zone earlier in the game. You can’t do that against good teams. But I don’t blame Josh, I put most of the blame on our Oline and RBs. 

 

'Scuse me.  Did our D get one single solitary stop on the Titans in the 2nd half?  I think that fact may have some applicability when assigning responsibility.

I knew we'd lose if we went for it even though I think it was probably the right call so I wasn't really surprised lol I'm almost happy we tried the sneak because that was the highest percentage play...if we had thrown an incompletion I wouldve lost my mind 

I would have preferred a run pass roll out option. Have a tight end in the end zone.  Leave it in Josh's hands to either run or pass it. Of course if that didn't work Every one would becsayingvwe should have run a QB sneak.

Our OL, DL & RB's were garbage tonight. 

 

 

 

It was striking watching Henry run then our guys - nothing against them they're OK.  And Henry will do that to most.

 

But....we have below average running backs defenses don't respect.  That's why we have had red zone issues - they aren't biting on fakes.  

 

And Knox....I'm just waiting for the broke hand 8 weeks news.

Off game for Josh but he makes the throws required to be great. When he gets that deer in the headlights look, thats when you worry; but he still performs. 

 

If a 74.5% completion percentage, 375+ yards, 3 TDs and 1 INT is an "off game" for any QB then break out the gold jacket already.

Titans scored on their last 6 possessions, the D game plan was trash.  Going for it on 4th and inches with JA under center was the right call.  Titans got lucky that Allen slipped and the online caved.  

Maybe with 3 timeouts that's is possibly the right call... but the playbook would've been limited, and a TD was far from guaranteed in that situation, especially given the Offenses shortcomings earlier in the game in similar down and distance. 

 

People are acting as if it was goal to go.  He was only picking up another chance or two at a score before potentially still having to settle for a FG, not worth the risk when you factor all that.

 

Also, there is still a 50% chance Buffalo wins the flip, who's to say Titans ever get the chance to see the field???

 

I like Josh and the offense's odds against a depleted Titans defense to go right back out there and score if they had won the flip and got the ball right back...

 

Even if they don't, if I'm McDermott, I still have to have faith in my defense to atleast hold Tennessee to a FG should they win the flip.

I don't think so.  We can't stop Henry or the play action.  Exact same they way they played us last year.  If we continue to sell out on Henry, they just pass right over the top.  

Our "fear " of henry is legit annoying. Most pansy defense play calling i ever seen. Literally sold out hard to stop the run after that 76 yard TD. So what they broke one questionable non call holding... so what dont change your game thats some candy a#$ $#!+

I agree that we can't stop Henry, don't get me started on how I feel about edmunds. But I think any other night josh drops over 40 on that secondary even the healthy dbs. Josh just seemed to miss alot of plays he usually hits.

What the Hell are you talking about, son?? 358 yrds passing, 3 TD passes and he caught a touchdown! 
Off game?? Jesus Christ!

Man, this place is a wasteland following a tough Bills loss.
 

Allen was clearly not the reason for the loss. It’s unfathomable that some folks see it otherwise.

Hated the call or at least force the refs to review the previous run by Josh. That buys you time to come up with a better 4th down play.

under 2 minutes, can't challenge the play. Only from upstairs.

Yeah, definitely put this L on the defense, but let's not forget...

 

The Titans have one of the best RBs ever. He's about to lead the league in rushing for the third straight season. That has only been done by 4 backs in history: Steve Van Burren, Jim Brown, Earl Campbell, and Emmitt Smith---all of whom are in the Hall of Fame. His three year stretch is better than Terrell Davis' 3-year stretch that got him into the Hall. This guy is a shoo-in HOFer.

 

They also have Julio...first ballot HOFer; A.J. Brown who is a bonafide stud receiver (2,126 yds and 20 TDs in his first two years in the league); and an above average QB.

 

That is a very talented team we just played, in their building, looking for a statement win with their two returning stud receivers going up against "the best team in the AFC" as we were being called. They were highly motivated. I thought the Bills would pull it out, but it's not like we were playing against scrubs by any means. So I'm not going to be too hard on the defense.

 

It was a great game and we came up inches short. I was 60/40 on kicking the field goal at the end, but don't fault McD at all for going for the win. A couple years ago, people were saying they wish McDermott would have more of a killer instinct and not play it safe. Well he was aggressive and we lost.

 

Honestly, no shame in this loss. Very disappointing, but in the long run, probably not that big a deal (unless home field comes down to us and Tenn at the end of the year). Once again, this loss will keep the team humble and hungry throughout the bye week and not buy into their own hype. Go rest, retool, and come out guns blazing the rest of the season.

 

Just wish we could have gotten the win to rub the stupid "Homerun throwback" attempt in Vrable's face. What an arrogant Fn call. 

 

Go Bills!

I'm not understanding the hate on Allen, we can't expect him to cover the deficiencies on defense. Allen did his job and then some, I have no issue with him. Biggest issue I have was Poyer being wrapped up on Henry's long TD run

I think it was a Brendan Staley interview in the off season that I listened to, his over all thoughts were that you need to trust analytics a lot but then there will be times you go against it and should have no issue doing so. Because each game has different flow and each game has different teams and situations. Mentioned that when you are moving the ball at will take a more conservative approach. When you are out matched take an aggressive approach 

 

Coaches need to read the game

I might have a hot take here but I think our rbs do pretty well considering they get 0 running lanes.  Our offensive line had a good year pass blocking last year but they were bad run blocking and in a cap reduced year we really didn't have the opportunity to do a complete offensive line rebuild.  You could plop Derrick henry on our roster and he ain't going for 100+ in a game
