The Buffalo Bills enter their bye week 3-2, and atop the AFC East. This team is far from perfect, so today we ask three questions about what the Bills have done and need to do this season.
#1 – Where is Shady?
The Buffalo Bills’ offense has been bailed out many times this season by their stingy defense. One year removed from boasting the top offensive rushing attack, Buffalo has fallen from first to sixteenth in terms of rush yards per game.
Their offense has stalled and currently ranks 31st in offensive yards per game, according to ESPN.
A large part of this is due to the ineffectiveness of LeSean McCoy. He is still a major threat in the passing game, but he has yet to find the endzone this season. This issue could stem from shaky offensive line play or a fruitless offense as a whole, but I can’t help but imagine what this team could be if the offense were playing as well as the defense.
LeSean McCoy was a top tier running back last season, but he has looked pedestrian in 2017 thus far. I trust that this will change, but if it doesn’t soon, then this team could be in trouble.
