Buffalo Bills offense struggling in the early part of training camp

Through the first week and half of training camp, the Buffalo Bills defense has certainly gotten the better of the offense most days.

This was a bit surprising considering that this offense was one of the best in the league last year and has Josh Allen, Stefon Diggs, Gabriel Davis, and Dawson Knox while the defense is missing Tre’Davious White, as well as being without Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer at different points.

How will this impact the regular season?

At this point of training camp, this shouldn’t be overly concerning for fans and likely will have minimal impact. While the Buffalo Bills are bringing back most of their starters, the team does have a new offensive coordinator in Ken Dorsey.

The good news with Dorsey being the replacement is that it isn’t a complete overhaul of an offense, one that has done well the past two years. However, there is still going to be a learning curve and there are going to be some things to work out as they test different parts of the playbook.

It wouldn’t be surprising to see the Bills’ offense continue to struggle through training camp and into the preseason, as they try to limit what they are putting on tape for the regular season. Once the regular season begins, this offense shouldn’t have the same issues as they open the entire playbook and have had some time getting familiar with the way Dorsey wants to run his offense.
