I agree but now isn't the time for this. Let's enjoy the victory! Team showed heart at the end to pull off a mirculous victory.

Worst 8-3 team of all time?  You mean the 2022 Bills that lead the league in point differential and have the highest strength of victory?

Gabe Davis should’ve caught that ball near the end zone right? I’m watching Darius Slayton go up and make a play for Daniel Jones. Davis has to go up and get that ball.

 

Im very down on him this year. I’ve gone from thinking we had our WR2 to evaluating his game each week thinking we need better.

We need a true # 1 to go with Diggs

I thought Detroit committed unforgivable time and game management errors down the stretch.  It was almost inevitable they would score a touchdown but they were 100% trying for a field goal.  Not only that, they left way too much time on the clock.  

 

I want someone to do a deep dive into that halftime show to figure our what was happening and how that was green-lit.  

 

Ugly game.  Those are the games brady and new England would always win.  It would drive us nuts.  

I agree with this.  These are the reasons I think you can make a reasonable argument that Bass missing the extra point on the Bills last TD actually helped the Bills.  The Bills are now up 3 instead of 4 and the Lions are not in 4 down mode. They got into field goal range and had a 4th and 1 around the 35 or so of the Bills.  If down 4, they are going for that and a pretty good chance the drive is continuing.  There would probably be more urgency to conserve time as well.  They played really conservative that last drive to the point where I was like, not only are they playing the FG, but they are playing scared and it caused them to have to go for a long field goal and leave 23 seconds on the clock with Bills having all 3 timeouts.

We have highest SOV? That’s cool I didn’t know that. 

Schedule has been even brutal-er than we thought lol the supposedly easy back half isn’t even easy.  The two games that seemed like layups both ended up being away games in a 5 day span against the 4th and 6th ranked offenses in the league

Gotta say, that game was sloppy, Dorsey needs to be fired tonight, throw Josh into a Bacta tank, but the mental fortitude on those last 2 drives is why these guys play the game and we are posting on a message board.

If only posters could be fired. Aside from the rough 2 weeks, lack of practice, condensed time between games, injuries etc its an accomplishment they pulled through and won when they needed to. Similar to the Chiefs win last Sunday night - stay in it and win at the end of the game. They needed a few bounces, but this wasnt like the Jets game where they left a ton of points on the field. The Lions gave a depleted Bills team all they could handle, and there is nothing wrong w that. If this team was doing laps around the Lions and then just weren't finishing or pissed it away thats one thing. That didn't happen today. They gutted this out and won. All things equal, the Bills should have covered the spread. It was evident pretty early however that this would take everything left in the tank to pull it out and they did. The Jets game is a game where excuses were a bad look. This one was the reality of the situation. Try and be a better fan man. There are many take aways from this game but just saying axe the OC is a lazy and uninformed take. Bad look imo
