I’m sure this has been said, but the stats argue this game was lost in the trenches. Statistically we dominated but lost. Both the DL and OL were abysmal. Whether it’s the heat or injuries, they both failed the team. No major catastrophes in Coaching or turnovers are to blame. The big fellas just didn’t bring it today.

Couldn’t disagree more. The big uglies were not to blame today. You don’t get those kind of disparities in yardage, first downs etc getting whipped in the trenches. The skill positions failed at key moments leaving points off the board. That’s really it. Bills should have had 30 or more today including the safety.

I mean the ol was objectively terrible but josh Allen did josh Allen things to somewhat overcome it

Frankly I hate blaming anyone but the OL was in fire drill mode all game. Maybe 3 drop backs were clean. Many chunk yards came from exploiting the Miami D aggressiveness on jail breaks.
 

The first 2 games we dominated in the trenches. Today I saw none of that. I suppose whether that alone is to blame is impossible to tell. Surely what you bring up is true too. Definitely not enough points in Dolphins territory.

is that confirmed?

 

I doubt if it ever will be.

But I thought it was pretty obvious that he had either grabbed his junk or tried to bend his fingers or some other crap that gutless turds do in piles.

Did anyone get a replay of the Quisenberry holding call? II mean those yards of course were critical in retrospect. That said I won't blame the refs for this loss. Simply put the Dolphins out played us in our last two offensive possessions. Good on them but we outplayed them despite all our injuries. 8 out of 10 times we likely win a game like that.

Watch the replay - Allen grabs his crotch while he's yelling at the ref.  also Wilkins has a history of it - famously caught doing it in college.

 

The crazy thing is he knew what he was doing and it worked - grabbed Josh's junk in the pile - Josh gets a 15 yd retaliation penalty and Wilkins just laughs

The Bills should disable the heat pipes leading to the visitors’ locker room and showers when we host them in December.  Because, you know, homefield advantage.

Next stadium should be a half dome where the Bills sideline is covered, dry and shaded for all inclement weather.

Can't wait to see the renderings for that

The visitors locker room can have a single stand up toilet only. They can wait in lines and stand up to do ALL their business. Their sideline bench should be back to the wall so fans can heckle the sh@t out of them. Seriously though, that stadium gave them an immeasurable advantage today. Like putting up a white backdrop for the home team pitcher.

I think you meant to say single round sink/urinal

Probably because our offense had guys popping in and out of the game because of heat.  Receivers going in and out.  Davis wasnt really ready but Kumerow got hurt.  Our entire line was different besides Dawkins.  I think we were on our 3rd string center at points of the game. Diggs and McK going in and out of the game.  Those things seriously disrupt everything.


Dude, I can’t believe we almost won that game. What a clown show. If this team can get healthy there isn’t anybody in the league that can stop them and it isn’t close. 
 

I hope Miami feels great about getting out of this match up by only two points. The team was down 4 OL. 2 Starting DL. 4 staring defensive backs, and WR 1, 2, and 3 were all hobbled, still put up 500 yards and allowed only 212. 
 

I hate losing this game; but I am amped. The mission has never been clearer. Keep grinding. Get healthy. Our time will come. 
 

Look for a 40 burger next time at home.

I'm just curious whether or not this is the most decimated with injuries the Bills have been in the Josh Allen era? 

decimated is a literal understatement. 1 in 10 is decimated.  We were double that

Let's put the shoe on the other foot...if the Fins faced our rash of injuries and players cramping up during the 4th quarter to the degree we did, how much do the Bills win by? 50? 40? 30? with Allen sitting most of the 2nd half?
