The performance by the Buffalo Bills on Saturday night was one for the history books. For the Bills, it means they are moving on to the next round but for Brian Daboll and Leslie Frazier it could mean new opportunities next season.
The Bills offensive and defensive coordinators are both scheduled to have interviews for head coaching positions after the 47-17 victory over the New England Patriots.
According to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, both coaches will interview with the Miami Dolphins and Chicago Bears. Daboll is reportedly interviewing with both franchises on Sunday while Frazier will interview with the Dolphins today and the Bears later in the week.
This is the second year in a row that both coaches have been considered for head coach positions. Brian Daboll interviewed with the New York Jets and Los Angeles Chargers last year while Leslie Frazier was considered a finalist for the Houston Texans opening.
Brian Daboll, Leslie Frazier adds a statement win to an already impressive resume
The Buffalo Bills have had one of the better offenses and defenses this year with Brian Daboll and Leslie Frazier helping lead the way. The Bills offense would finish the regular season fifth in the NFL in total yards (381.9) and third in points scored (28.4). However, on Saturday night took it to a new level with a historic performance with seven touchdowns on seven straight drives.
As for the Bills’ defense led by Leslie Frazier, they finished first in the NFL in total yards allowed (272.8) and points allowed (17). On Saturday night, the defense would pick off Mac Jones twice, sacked him three times, and for the first time, this year in their three matchups held New England to under 100 rushing yards.
Both coordinators were not selected for head coaching opportunities last year and the Buffalo Bills certainly benefited from having them on their staff this year. However, the team may not be as lucky this time around, especially after the game the Bills just had on Saturday night.
