No Hail Mary completions
This typically wouldn’t be a bold prediction but based on the past two games for the Buffalo Bills, it is. In Week 10 against the Arizona Cardinals, Kyler Murray found DeAndre Hopkins in the end zone as they were able to sneak by the Bills with a 32-30 win.
Then it seemed like history repeated itself against the Los Angeles Chargers completed a hail mary in the final minute against the Bills. The good news on this one was that the Chargers didn’t get in the end zone and the Bills were up by more than a touchdown and the pass didn’t mean much outside of a better stat line for Herbert.
However, this week the Bills shouldn’t be as concerned about a possible Hail Mary being completed due in large part to the fact that Nick Mullens is not the same quarterback as Murray or Herbert. He doesn’t have great arm strength and would likely struggle to push the ball 50-60 yards downfield on that type of play.
The hail mary is an unlikely play and this week it appears to be even more unlikely to happen against the Buffalo Bills.
