Awesome games this weekend. I enjoyed them. I was rooting for Buffalo today, but I am okay with KC winning. Neither team deserved to lose. 

 

Next week I am rooting for the 49ers and Bengals. 

Same here.

This overtime setup is an absolute travesty. The fact that this game was literally decided on a coin toss is disgusting.

People said the same thing when the 1st score of any kind would win it.

Feel for Josh Allen, that guy played amazing and deserved better.  It is unfortunate that someone had to lose that game.  

 

The bottom line is when any team has a 3 point with 13 seconds left, appropriate game management and defensive play calling should be enough to win the game. 

 

The throws to Hill and Kelce were way too easy. Can't give up 20 yards like that underneath when a FG ties game. 

 

I agree with Romo that they should have brought some pressure and forced Mahomes to get rid of the ball quickly more in that situation. Its almost as if that Hill TD on the drive before spooked the defensive staff and they got way to soft and deep on their zones.

I’m just shell shocked! Unbelievably shocked! Bills should have won this just unbelievable. Feel bad for Allen, he won the game and the defense lost it.

Absolutely terrible defensive strategy for the last 13 seconds. And to think these coaches make millions to do that. Pathetic

If Allen wanted the ball then defense should of stopped KC.

Easier said than done, with that late flurry of scores, both defenses were gassed and neither one was stopping anybody at that point.

Yea I dont understand every D coordinator in the league does this, get away from what works and go into this super safe shell to not allow the big play, but will allow 20 yard short passes right down the field. It just doesn't make sense.

Gambling on offense is a current trend, but the Bills could have gambled more on defense tonight.

So true.

I can't imagine how dead those defensive players felt chasing Mahomes and Allen all night..

And it was cold on top of that.

 

Tough...

It's how great QBs build their comeback legends, driving their teams down the field in ridiculously short amounts of time. 

 

If something works for the first 58 minutes or so of a game, why you would quit it in the final 2:00 has always been a mystery to me, especially in a 1 score game.

Even with 13 seconds left I knew the Chiefs would somehow win that game.

 

What kind of defense just lets receivers run 10+ yards uncontested on back to back plays to get them in field goal range? That was Jim Caldwell on the Colts level of defense right there.

 

At least Brady lost, and even then, the Rams did everything in their power to give them that game (and people were still telling us how awesome and GOATy Brady was for getting them to that comeback, apparently Brady caused the Rams to fumble three times and have an unexpected snap go over Stafford's head).

 

I'm sure next year the Patriots will go like 14-3 and Mac Jones will be playing at a Mahomes-like level too.

Nobody understands why or how these D coordinators do that at the end of games. They all do it also, but hey they are in the league were not we all must be dumb.

Man dude, that was devastating. My hats off to Josh Allen, he played outstanding. You guys have so much bad luck.

I'm used to these "Football Eeyore" comments being directed at the Patriots, so this is a little weird for me. :thmup:

 

too good to be true disney GIF

 

As a Bills fan, you have every reason to be optimistic. Your team remains on the rise and no, the Patriots are not catching the Bills next season, or anytime soon for that matter, if I'm being honest. The Bills should rule the AFC East for a bare minimum of 5 more years, and will be a perennial playoff contender for at least that long. And last night your QB took a huge step toward  becoming a household name that even non-NFL fans will recognize. 

 

Candidly, I thought the Bills going to get routed last night, but I was dead wrong. Regardless of the final score, Buffalo proved a lot to the football-watching world yesterday. There is a bright future ahead.

We missed your commentary yesterday.  It was a great game.

 

I am so impressed with Allen this year and his play yesterday was phenomenal.  Both QBs were.  I found myself wanting both to win.  Not possible,  I know, but they both played SB MVP worthy game.

    • Ya we need one. It's on ESPN and it's a 1pt PPR, but there's also defensive points for passes defended. So there's a little more points from Defenses. 
    • Says the right things I guess.   Same guy though that in two games, which we won by  a combined score of 72-15 (and never in doubt), ran JT into the ground 64 times...    Good intentions though.    I do think his production/attempts decrease though.     
    • I'm not as optimistic as you are in some areas lol.  I'm in a wait and see mode in several. And a prove me wrong mode until I see something different in a few.    Doesn't really matter. If we're good, everyone (most anyway) will be happy and forget about a lot of the stuff. If we're not, the same conversations will be had.   Perhaps we need a "Colts Negative" thread to go along with the "Colts Positive" thread lol.... It would be a safe place for all the neg nancies to vent. I don't think the Colts Positive thread has kept the sunshine pumpers from pumping sunshine in normal threads though 
    • Loved what Cross did, and there was some other stuff to like. But it's hard to get too cheery knowing it was our 1st team D vs their 2nd team O.    And let's be honest. On the first drive, Keenum drove them right down to the 5... and they went for it on 4th and 4. If Allen is in, that's a TD 99% of the time. It was Keenum though. won't call him a super scrub, but he's not a starter. And Shakir and Moss pretty much had their way that drive. Our DBs had no answer for Shakir.   And just not a lot of pressure from the DL. No sacks or QB hits at all from our starters. Expected much better vs their 2nd team OL. 
    • I have even been posting with a chip on my shoulder lately, grouchy at times, etc.. As a fan I am all in, in serious mode once September rolls around. I am on record saying AFC Title Game or bust for us, time to man up, etc..    I just think we have the QB, roster, and yes even coach to get to the Championship Game and then from there lets see what happens. Matt Ryan doesn't have that ring so I have a feeling he is going to have a big year, not so much statistically but just making big plays at crucial moments. I don't see Taylor missing much of a beat either, and I think Pittman will even be better. Hines will be our ace in the hole, bailing us out on many 3rd and shorts with the pass. I like our defense but not sold on it, I am concerned about Maniac because we need him. He creates so many game changing Turnovers. Overall, I love our team though. Only huge question mark is LT IMO, but Nelson plays on the left side so that should help.
