Was the other team also without almost their entire starting secodary, 2 of their top performing interior dlinemen, starting center, backup center, hobbled starting #2 receiver. backup to hobbled starting#2 receiver, all of their oline minus the LT.  Did the other team sit in the sun all game or did they have a nice shade... yes that shade makes a huge difference.

 

Our team fielded a preseason roster.  We lost by 2 points.  Get over it.


The Miami sideline can be 30 degrees cooler than the visitors sideline. Some said above that Eric Wood reported 112 on field. That means the Miami sideline is a shady 82. 
 

I would certainly put injuries at the top of the list of reasons we lost. But this game is the exact reason the Hard Rock is built like it is.

The weather affected the Bills obviously.  But i think there’s been too much complaining on social media and this message board about it.  We’ve played in Miami for many years including Hard Rock, and won more than our share. Was Miami supposed to order cloud cover today? we’re they supposed to put up shade tents for Buffalo?   I get it, we lost and had a ton of guys cramp up and feel overheated. I think having the ball on offense for 90 plays was a serious issue. Blame Josh for ball controlling that much i guess. 

No one complains here when our weather helps the Bills win at home.

All Miami games should be at night in September and Maybe October.  It’s the new normal.

 

Not sure why the NFL puts the Pats and Bills down there in September. 

Miami has to play in the cold and snow in the Northeast in December. Home field advantage in both cases.

I have to disagree. 

 

The weather has come up because it was such a huge factor. Was listening to an interview with a camera man after the game and he said the temp on the field was 124 degrees and no meaningful shade for the Bills on the sideline. We had guys getting multiple IV's during the game. I have never seen heat impact a game that much in my many years watching the sport - blizzards, wind storms, torrential rains and sub-zero cold yes, but not this.

 

Just like the wind storm that created a weird run-only game with NE last year, they are talked about because how much those kind of games are anomalies. Those games are not good predictors of how future contests between those same teams will play out under more normal conditions.

 

The heat is no joke though, and the NFL could do better for player safety by scheduling those games for later in the evening or have Miami play in Buffalo, NE, NJ early in the season and get home field for the second half of the year. Just my opinion.

Unacceptable to get no FG attempts at the end of both halves(no timeouts in the first half drive), and not going for 4th and short near the red zone before the missed FG 
 

also, not sure the exact play but first half Ingram was engaged with Dawkins and kicked Josh Allen. 

 

It wasnt fourth and short it was 4th and 4.  FG is the right call there.  Not McDs fault basomatic missed a chip shot.

I hope Knox is ok

 

 

Yep Im pissed that wasnt called then they called defenseless on us when it was the receivers momentum going into our back where the hit wasnt even head.

Quick Question. On that last play when McKenzie caught the ball what would have happened if he "had conveniently" fumbled out of bounce regarding the clock. In other words would the clock have stopped.

 

Good question. I believe they would have brought the ball back to where he fumbled and not where it went out of bounds. Not sure about the clock. Maybe a 10 second run off. Either way best case scenario would have been a 65 yard FG if he intentionally fumbles it at the 47.

People have died of heatstroke in that type of heat with that kind of physicality.  I think people do complain of weather... they all get mocked for wanting a dome.

At some point in the in the run game we just have to line up and punch someone in the face on short yardage. Singletary got the Bills to the 1 yard line on 1st down with push from the OL. 2nd and goal we run the read option we get stuff for a loss of 2 or 3 yards. Its probably the play where Josh Allen hurt his hand on . 3rd down he missed Diggs and 4th down he short hopped the pass to McKenzie.

 

It cant just always on Josh to make ALL the plays especially in a game like this. Think about the advantage we had in time of possession. Now Imagine if even half those plays were us running the ball. We basically had 3 starters out on the OL by the end of the game but still hindsight is 20/20 but another run by singletary or moss wins us the game. 

 

With that being said Josh Allen is my guy

Miami shouldnt haqve won and shouldnt be happy they won lol

 

what really cost us is bass missing the fg quessenberry holding and imac not getting down

Those 3 were killers but terrible Center play can’t be overlooked. At least 4 muffed snaps and all of them were disastrous -including the last play of both half’s.

Semantics. 4 is short, the analytics would say go for it, and the possibility of failure with ether decision is baked in.

Sorry but I disagree.  Time and time again coaches have lost going for it in what analytics say.  Also you are assuming analytics say go for it in that situation... down, distance, score, time left, etc.  There are many variables to it than just down and distance.  That field goal is typically automatic... especially for Bass.  Its unfortunate he missed but IMO it was still the right call.  If McD went for it on 4th and 4 and they didnt get it then people would be talking about how not taking the points there lost the game and you know it.

 

and 4 is not short.  Its almost half the distance.  Short is 1 or 2.

Out of state fan here that's listened to WGR post game shows over the internet for what feels like a decade now. What's going on this year? Second week in a row I couldn't get any post game on Audacy and then a few other lamer apps that usually offer their broadcast. I know Audacy switched to WGR about an hour after the game last week, but I checked nearly 2 hours after the game this week and it was still some CBS schlub.

 

I'm assuming they're actually still doing shows and this is just an issue with picking up the broadcast? Pretty disappointing. During the drought I could pick up a WGR post game in 15 seconds, now several years later when it matters, I can't get anything.
