A Record Not Worth Holding

With the Buffalo Bills losing once again at home 36-26 to the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Bills’ defense set a franchise record that will certainly leave a bad taste in their mouths.

For the first time in the team’s history, the Bills’ defense allowed their opponents to score 30 points or more in four straight game.

Week 2: Lost 34-7 to the Green Bay Packers
Week 3: Lost 38-30 to the New England Patriots
Week 4: Lost 38-14 to the New York Jets
Week 5: Lost 36-26 to the Jacksonville Jaguars

Although not a record, the Bills are also off to their worst start (0-5) since 1985! And while the offense isn’t as dynamic as one would hope, at least this unit shows signs of life from time to time to keep the game competitive.

The defense on the other hand, looks completely lost at times out on the field. “It’s as bad as you could possibly get,” defensive tackle Kyle Williams told The Star. “We’re at the back end of everything. It’s bad. Really bad.”

The Bills have a bye in week 6, and I think it’s safe to say that the Bills players won’t be seeing too many days off during this break.
