The Offense Can’t Afford to Miss Opportunities


During their game against the Bengals, the Buffalo Bills’ offense squandered several opportunities to really seize control of the game, even though the defense created several turnovers, thereby creating opportunities for Tyrod Taylor and company.


But the offense struggled. The Bengals’ defense is no slouch; they are a top-five unit. The Bengals held an otherwise efficient red zone offense in the Bills to 1/3 for the day.


But on this play, the defense didn’t stop the Bills. Rather, quarterback Tyrod Taylor and TE Logan Thomas did. The defensive look was there, the play design was perfect, but Taylor missed his primary throwing window, and Thomas failed to adjust, which eliminated the second throwing window.


This offense cannot afford to waste these opportunities, because they won’t have many.
