Special Teams

Two years ago, Tyler Bass had a game he will probably remember his entire career with six made field goals and accounted for every point of the Buffalo Bills in a game against the New York Jets.

However, he didn’t have the same success today and he will want to forget this game. He made only one of two field goal attempts but the one he did make was critical as it tied the game up. Although on the very next play, he kicked the ball out of bounds on a kickoff and gave New York great field position.

Grade: C-

Final Grade

The Buffalo Bills once again found themselves on the losing end of a divisional matchup. Similar to the game against the Miami Dolphins, it would be easy to blame the fact the team dealing with injuries to key players before the game and then saw a number of players leave during the course of the game.

However, there are some concerning trends that have been developing since the bye week as Josh Allen now has four interceptions in the past two games and the defense is allowing opposing teams to rack up huge yardage totals on the ground.

The Buffalo Bills have some work to do and will need to find some answers before they play the surprising 7-1 Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.

Grade: D
