The end of the game was weird in real time.  Sean Payton elected to kneel the ball with 23 seconds on the clock so that they could kick with a running clock.  It created a great confusion and rush.  No excuses.  ...can't have 12 guys.

But that's looking at one play.

In general, Buffalo's offense stunk and left the Bills D on the field all game.

Just as I type this, I see that Ken Dorsey has been fired from the Bills.  Pretty rough.

It was probably all those interceptions Dorsey threw and fumbles he lost.

At the end of the day, somebody's head has gotta roll...

I'll bet the house that the Hurricanes will hire him for the 2024 season.

You can't pin that loss on the Buffalo D.  They were on the field all game long.

Buffalo couldn't move the ball or score and they kept turning the ball over, often in scoring range.

The Bills D played great.
Well we are talking about the Broncos offense here, so take that with a grain of salt. Broncos offense was it's own worst enemy for much of the night, but my point was that when it mattered most Bills defense self destructed allowing several key first downs and a really bad pass interference on 3rd and long and then 12 men on the field which technically goes against the special teams, but still a really bad way to lose a game when the offense finally gave you a lead with 2 minutes to go.

I'm not blaming the Bills defense for the loss, but I am blaming them for collapsing with 2 minutes left in the game and holding a 1 point advantage. Good defenses aren't supposed to do that especially to a rather inept offense.

He obviously committed pass interference on Jeudy at the end .. also he shouldn't have been standing out there for the field goal block as the 12th man

this is a clear scapegoat .. which as a dolphins fan is delightful to see.

Just one of the weirdest games I’ve watched I’m glad it happened as it did but the whole thing leaves me scratching my head.

I haven't heard anything but I'm guessing it had more to do with off the field stuff or chemistry. Buffalo's offense has been putting up pretty decent numbers all year.

Getting offended by something you see on the internet is like choosing to step in dog shite instead of walking around it.

Rumors are swirling that they have locker room issues.

Josh Allen said something in the tunnel about leaving all the personal things at home there in the tunnel.
And then there was a players only meeting a few days before, which some talking head on ESPN said that often is about squashing a beef.

Then there were some weird tweets from Digg's brother about getting him out of there.

Something could be up.

No matter what the sport, when teams start having players' only meetings it's a bad sign; and most often doesn't help one bit.  I hate to use the term "trap game" (because it brings up bad memories of Wanny hanging lobster traps in the Miami locker room), but this game seemed to be a trap game for Buffalo.  With all their successes the past couple years I think they thought this would be an easy home win; unlike when they played Miami earlier this year and they were well prepared and up for the game.  I sense the price of tickets in Buffalo dropping after this game.

I hope so. I hope we can take advantage of it. We’re the most talented team in the divison so hope we can show the killer instinct and get it. I won’t be happy until December is over and we’re on top. I just pray we don’t collapse idk if I can deal.

It's an opportunity. Hopefully we take advantage of this...

I feel for... a very long time, stretching back to the Shula/Marino days... we could be actually a real contender.

The signs are right. and I want this so bad...  Tongue

This is the psychology of the game - the Dolphins are playing well, and the players have a positive energy; this carries over week to week in games.  Conversely the Bills have had some bad losses this year and it is carrying over week to week in the locker room, and it has hurt their play on the field.
