Red zone woes continue for the Buffalo Bills

Last week against the Green Bay Packers, the Buffalo Bills converted only two of their four trips in the red zone into touchdowns. One of those trips ended in an interception thrown by Josh Allen and the Bills started this week the same way.

The Bills’ opening drive began near midfield after Braden Mann slipped on the opening kickoff. It took only one play before the offense was in the red zone as Josh Allen found Stefon Diggs deep for a 42-yard reception.

However, Allen would make an ill-advised throw that was picked off by Jordan Whitehead.

Then on their second drive the offense once again reached the red zone but that drive almost ended in disaster. Josh Allen would fumble the ball after it was knocked from his hands but he was able to recover.

The Buffalo Bills did end up finding the end zone but these are mistakes that they have to correct moving forward and is one of the reasons they came up short today.
