For the second time in three weeks, the Buffalo Bills had a mistake on special teams that came during a pivotal point in the game. In Week 1, the Bills had a punt blocked for a touchdown that essentially put the game out of reach.
This week against Washington, the Bills had just given up a touchdown and on the ensuing kickoff, the ball hung up in the air took an unfriendly bounce that allowed Washington to recover the ball and they added another touchdown shortly after that cut their lead to one score.
Fortunately, the Buffalo Bills responded and put the game out of reach pretty quickly thereafter. However, this is something the coaching staff will need to work on to avoid these mistakes in the future.
Final Grade: C
Buffalo Bills Week 3 Team Grade
Outside of the mistake on the kickoff in the first half, the Buffalo Bills once again had an excellent game. The offense with Josh Allen under center looked nearly unstoppable with an average of over six yards per play, converted nine of 15 third-down opportunities, and had eight drives end in points.
Meanwhile, the Buffalo Bills defense really never allowed the Washington Football Team to get anything going outside of one play, which was the screen pass to Antonio Gibson that went for more than 70 yards for a touchdown.
If the Buffalo Bills continue to play this well on both sides of the ball, this is going to be a tough team to beat and should be considered one of the top teams in the league.
Final Grade: A-
