Defend and Dictate

The Buffalo Bills concluded the first quarter of the NFL season with a tremendous 23-17 win on the road against the Atlanta Falcons. For someone who was expecting this team to struggle due to the roster turnover, I would consider their 3-1 record to be quite miraculous. Roster turnover notwithstanding, one thing the fans could hang their hat on was that, even though he was a rookie head coach, Sean McDermott managed to put together an experienced staff. McDermott’s staff

Why It Worked: Taylor to Clay vs. Broncos

Bills Quarterback Tyrod Taylor had one of his best games against the Denver Broncos defense in two years, and he did it without the aid of a run game. Running back LeSean McCoy finished the game with 14 attempts for 21 yards, but regardless of how effective the run game is, the play action off of it will be effective because of Taylor’s mobility. On Charles Clay’s second touchdown of the 2017 season he shows how critical a player he

Bills Offense | Personnel and Play action vs. Broncos

Offensive coordinator Rick Dennison utilized his personnel matchups and play design to get players open against one of the best defenses in the NFL. On this play, Dennison sends out 13 personnel (1 RB, 3 TEs) and the Broncos play man coverage, matching up defensive back Will Parks against TE Nick O’Leary. The play fake by Taylor holds Parks just enough for O’Leary to separate during his release and  drive phase. Parks is in chase mode, which allows O’Leary to
