This game had me thinking – was Tyrod Taylor quarterbacking the Bills offense? It was a reminder of that 2017 season playoff game.
Once again the Bills offensive line was manhandled by a young defensive front led by there 7th overall draft pick named Josh Allen. The Jaguars Allen and his defensive teammates made Bills Josh Allen look like a rookie and back to playing Hero ball.
The Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll is starting to show why he did not receive a Head Coaching position in the NFL. Daboll refused to run the football and put the Bills most explosive running back Matt Brieda on the football field. Brieda has been a healthy Inactive player for many games and that does not make any sense. They are treating him just like T.J. Yeldon, who was inactive for many games the last two years until an injury happened and was rushed into duty during last seasons playoffs.
Did anyone catch Bills running back Zack Moss getting hit at the line of scrimmage and adjusted his helmet just in time to get smashed by three Jaguars defenders causing his helmet to come completely off his head leading to a concussion? Moss is now officially in concussion protocol. The Bills need another physical back. Antonio Williams can possibly come off practice squad and be that player. I would play him in at least the next two to three games to get an idea whether or not he is the right man for the job.
Bills QB Josh Allen : They wanted the game more. I did not protect the football and I must be better too. My decision making was bad and they (Jaguars) got paid. ”
Bills defensive linebacker Tremaine Edmunds: “We definitely left some plays out on the field today. “We could have gotten some early game turnovers and we can’t beat ourselves in close games.”
Bills Defensive Coordinator Leslie Frazier had his unit playing good enough to only allow three field goals in the loss to the Jaguars. I felt the energy level was low on both sides of the ball, but the defense withstood offensive turnovers and played a good enough game to win. Once again Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer continue to come up to the line of scrimmage and make tackles. They are making plays that Tremaine Edmunds and Matt Milano should be making. The Bills also made an offer on Von Miller which tells me they are not satisfied with pass rushers Mario Addison and Jerry Hughes. The Bills must find a real middle linebacker next season in order to make plays at the line of scrimmage. Jordan Poyer is playing with a bad shoulder now and having him make it through the second half of the season is a huge question mark. Micah Hyde is more of a text book tackler and a tremendous athlete who makes difficult plays look easy. If Bills QB Josh Allen had half of the football IQ that Hyde has it would make him so much better of an NFL QB and propel him to the next level.
The Bills travel The Meadowlands to face a sorry New York Jets football team. The Jets defense lost their best player in Marcus Maye to a torn Achilles’ tendon last week and former Bills Shaq Lawson continues to take too many plays off. Josh Allen and offense should rebound with a high-performance game. Bills will win 31 – 10.
