Buffalo Bills: Report card from their Week 14 performance
This was the busiest game of the season for Corey Bojorquez as he had five punts, which was a season-high, four of which came in the first half. While the Bills’ offense struggled to find a rhythm, it was Bojorquez that was key in ensuring the Steelers stayed pinned in their side of the field for most of the game. He finished the game with an average of 45.6 yards per punt and had two inside the 20.
As for Tyler Bass, after three straight weeks of being perfect, he had his first miss which came on an extra point in the first half. Fortunately, it didn’t have an impact on the outcome and he would finish the game making both field goal attempts and two other extra point attempts.
Buffalo Bills Week 14 Final Grade
While the game last week against the San Francisco 49ers may have been the most complete performance, this week’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers may have been the most impressive of the season.
The fact that they were playing the AFC leading Pittsburgh Steelers and the way they were able to bounce back after the offense struggled to get anything going in the first half speaks volumes. The defense, which hasn’t been the team’s strength this season, was able to do enough to keep the game close until the offense got into a rhythm.
There has been plenty of big wins this season for the Buffalo Bills but this is one that moves the needle from the team being a good story this season to being a serious AFC contender.
