Can the Buffalo Bills correct the second half woes?

Prior to the bye week, the Buffalo Bills were one of the best second half teams in the NFL, on both sides of the ball. The offense was routinely coming out of halftime and getting on the board in the third quarter to extend a lead meanwhile the defense was shutting teams down and not letting them get in the end zone.

Since the bye though has been a different story and it has been a struggle for both the offense and the defense. Over the past three games, the Bills have been outscored 43-12 and have yet to score a touchdown in the final two quarters during that stretch.

Another big issue in the second half has been turnovers as Josh Allen has thrown five of his six interceptions over the past three games after halftime.

If the Buffalo Bills want to get back into the win column they need to do a better job protecting the ball. Some of the responsibility also falls on the coaching staff as they need to get back to making those halftime adjustments that they were doing so well earlier in the season.
