The penalty was Diggs wasn't on the LoS.  He thought the TE who was next to & even w/ the RT was considered to be on the line but the LJ didn't see it that way.

No.  Davis was on the line.  The issue was on the other side of the formation.  The camera work was ridiculously bad this game.

Yeesh if that was it, I didn't see a replay then.

I'll just say this, that CBS crew was straight up terrible. Are we relegated to getting the 5th string crew every week? Somehow they still found a way to polish the Jets balls even when they were getting manhandled in the 2nd half. 

I personally enjoyed them sucking Gase's... face for half the game as though he was some brilliant tactician.

The plus for me was our defensive play in second half. Also in spite of his fumble I honestly thought Josh had a good, not spectacular, game. We need to cut down on those penalties costing us positive plays/field position. Also we need to find the end zone more down in red zone.

Until this game, we were lethal in the redzone. I really think Daboll got far too cute in the redzone yesterday.

They sucked against the Titans and Chiefs.  

Well, strictly speaking, it’s more: Even when they don’t play especially well, good teams win games against inferior opponents. But good teams playing poorly will lose to superior teams, for sure.

But, again, scoring no touchdowns and never punting the ball? That's just weird.

Perhaps weirder than you even realize.  The last time a team won while neither scoring a TD nor punting the ball in was 1941, when Washington beat the Brooklyn Dodgers.

Nope. We should use a once in a century occurrence as a barometer for how good the Bills are.  They are so good, they can move up and down the field, sometimes kicking the ball from great distance to slowly accumulate points. It’s genius.

It depends on the point of view. Some would say that we held the high flying Chiefs offense to under 30 points for the first time on the season. Hill and Mahomes were for the most part held in check, while they are true statements I saw things a little differently.

On offense, the Bills barely tried to establish the run, I can't remember in recent years the amount of empty backfields we had. This has been a theme most games and the Chiefs were ready to defend knowing Daboll's tendency to want to pass a lot. The Chiefs also know that Allen likes going for the mid range to deep balls and defended well. The Chiefs recognized that Brown has been out and covering Diggs was much easier without a secondary deep threat like Brown (I know the Rook has been decent but he's not quite there yet) The Chiefs played defense expecting the mid to deep passes and did an excellent job, the Bills didn't really adjust well either. 

On offense for the Chiefs, they did exactly what they had to do. They knew it was raining, knew they could run the ball against our average to meh run defense and passed only when they really needed to. Mahomes didn't have a big game because he didn't need a big game, they were gaining 6yds per carry and we couldn't stop them. If i remember correctly, Mahomes picked up a couple 3rd downs with his legs as well.

Defensively for the Bills, they just couldn't stop the run and get off the field. It was a winnable game but the offense just wasn't there and it wasn't clicking. We really need to get our RBs going and improve run blocking, Allen cant be throwing 35-40+ times a game. 

Overall comments (not about the Chiefs game)- I think John Brown's injury has been brutal for the offense, he's a top 3 WR2 in the league and Diggs benefits from him being on the field. Dawson Knox, I am pulling for this kid but the dropsies are brutal and now he's out with covid. Kroft is slowly emerging as the TE1 and hes okay. I think we are missing Star on the DL more than we realize, he rarely showed up on the stat line but he pretty much draws double teams by the opposing OL freeing up the rest of the line. Lawson and Philips are missed, the vets we signed just aren't quite there, Hughes has slowed (though he played a great 2nd half yesterday) Harry Philips has been benched two games in a row now. Oliver isn't having a great season so far. Is Milano going to stop getting hurt and be 100%? The defense is far better when Milano plays.

There's a lot to unpack with the Bills, I think we are pretty lucky to be 5-2. If we can go 5-4 the rest of the way I will be happy.

The analytics of the Bills shows a very flawed team but improving.  One big one is the fact we’ve been out scored overall.  McDermott has done a great job changing the culture and direction of this organization. But I still think with what he inherited, year 4 is not enough time to be a top contender.  But we are competing for the division so progress. I still think we need a few more off-seasons.  Having a young, talented, and developing QB gives us time.  Our GM seems to handle the cap well.  The bad news is probably not a super bowl this year.  I think the goal is to win the division and win a playoff game.  The good news is we should be in the mix the next decade to have a good competitive team.

Patriots' WR Julian Edelman underwent a precautionary standard knee procedure this morning, per source. It is expected to sideline Edelman for “some period of time”, including Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills.

This does nothing to quell my fears about this game.

I know what you mean, but they literally don't have any WRs worth a damn.

This team was gashed by Frank Gore.  I could easily see the Pats running for 300 against the Bills.

I would have preferred ‘gored by Frank Gore’ but as my moniker indicates, I’m an admitted Ahole. 
 

Carry on.

Gashed is a little strong ... 11 carries for 60 yds.

If they Jets had any brain power at all he would have had 20 carries for north of one hundred yards.  Don’t let their incompetence fool you into believe the Bills can do anything to stop the run right now.

If they had any intelligence, at a minimum they would've had Gore carry on the 4th & 1 attempt rather than the little guy that did carry it.

This is a valid concern.

Maybe Belichick will come out and have the Pats run a military academy style triple wing option. (Hat tip to the Pardon My Take guys for that joke (maybe not a joke).)

Didn't Bellycheat start out at Army?  You might be onto something there. 😉
