A New Way To Lose

The Buffalo Bills possessed the ball for 40 minutes in a 60 minute game and still lost. They totaled almost 500 yards for the game. Converted 31 first downs and were 11-18 on 3rd down conversions. Buffalo scored only 19 points, but the one flaw that the Bills need to remedy going forward is establishing the run game without using your quarterback in Josh Allen.

It was a perfect storm that was setup beautifully and it needed to be executed in order for it to work. QB Tua Tagovailoa ended the game with 6 touchdown passes for 469 yards and had a 72% completion percentage to boot. Miami proved they are serious and that Tua is their guy.
