 The defense is not a shell of itself. Just played the QB with the most passing yards through 2 weeks and he failed to hit 200 yards. Bills defense leads the league in yards per game and is 4th in points per game averaging 12.7 points allowed. The biggest part of containing Lamar is the defensive line, which should be in good shape for Sunday.

 

 

Have you seen the Bills secondary? Lamar isn't a great passer but he's more than adequate enough to do some damage via the pass. Also, the secondary is important to stop the run too. The Bills defense has a tough task in Balt. Lamar isn't Tua, Tannyhill, or an immobile Stafford.  This will be a very good test.

Leslie Fraizer now has 13 second and the 3rd and 22 debacle. This team will never be able to get rid of him.

Are we really trying to compare 13 seconds to a backup safety getting burnt by and elite WR with 4.2 speed in week 3? The “third and 22 debacle” will never be a thing.

Agree with it not being a thing, but putting absolutely zero pressure on a QB..... any one of us could have made a completion with the amount of time he had! He needs to change that way of thinking and put some damn pressure on the QB.

The bigger mistake was not dropping 3 deep into coverage

NFL has already said the game will not be moved to Miami, although the Bucs are practicing there from today on. 

 

Pretty big competitive disadvantage for TB if the game was moved out of Tampa.  And they are already scheduled to play a "home" game in Germany.  I figured all along that the NFL would re-schedule it not relocate the game. It's not like that hasn't happened in the recent Covid years.

Disagree with this take. McDermott and coaches have to take a week to week focus. Each game presents different issues with different game plans. Each week is a building block to the make a playoff push and hopefully a Super Bowl win. 

 

The Bills coaching staff does try new things. Cook had a little bit of a run vs Miami. Some weeks Allen runs more, more run pass options are called, different defenses, stunts, blitzing or not, etc...

 

Last year, I felt like the Bills were prepared for the playoffs. What makes you think they weren't? The Bills were on a nice roll and had high confidence. Most fans felt that the Bills had a great chance to beat the mighty Chiefs. To win it all. The Bills smashed the Pats and played a winning game vs KC. The Bills didn't lose to KC because they weren't prepared or the coaches didn't try something  earlier in the season. In fact, it was quite the opposite. Early and middle of last season the Bills couldn't run the ball. They changed run schemes and personnel and boom they had a much better rushing attack. Your post is wildly inaccurate with respect. 

 

To be clear I'm not saying I want the Bills to change their entire offensive philosophy or become a run-first team. I'm saying they need to find ways to create offensive production without Allen doing everything. Either through the run game or through easy YAC. Offenses that run entirely through the QB don't make it through January. And we can't wait until January to figure out that aspect of our offense. It's something we have to intentionally work at over the course of the season. Even accounting for the injuries on Sunday, Miami just laid out the book on how to beat our offense - blitz us, allow Allen to get his easy quick pass or scramble for a few yards, do this all the way to the red zone and force us into a compressed field. Typically to beat the blitz you would either run the ball or get a YAC receiver involved. We don't have the ability to do either right now so Dorsey has to figure something out. Supposedly this is why we brought James Cook in. I don't know if he's the solution but we have to figure it out.

It would be, and both rescheduling the game to Mon or Tues night or playing at a different venue are being considered.

Why do you think our D is so bad in RZ when they are statistically pretty good in most other categories?  

Since we're only giving up 12.7 pts/game, nothing. Teams are hardly ever getting to the red zone.

I don’t believe that MIA has put forth any blueprint on beating the Bills. They racked up 31 first downs and almost 500 yards of offense. The Bills stopped themselves in the red zone. Only a couple of errors and a poor throw that Allen rarely makes kept the Bills from scoring 31 points. Not a formula for winning many games.

The strategy the phins used to beat the bills isn't sustainable

 

In my opinion it's very similar to when the pats beat the bills last season in the wind game, a lot of breaks

Miami did use the Jacksonville strategy. Just get Buffalo to play a bunch of backup and PS OL and you have a chance. Also make sure that the center is playing out of position. That's they key part of the strategy.

It also wouldn’t be a successful one. Two uncommon errors and a tipped chip shot field goal kept 17 points off the board. Yes, a lot of good breaks kept MIA ahead on the scoreboard.
