Every year, the Buffalo Bills have games that they wish they could have back. The Bills are one of the top rosters in the NFL and are going to win more games than they lose.
However, the NFL is very competitive and a few plays here or there will often decide the outcome of the game. In Week 5 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, that was ultimately the case as there were some players who overall had a pretty good game but a few mistakes or penalties cost the offense points or gave the Jaguars opportunities to add some points.
When looking at this game, these are five players that theoretically cost the Buffalo Bills the win in Week 5.
5 Buffalo Bills who lost the game in Week 5 against Jaguars
Through the first four games, rookie O'Cyrus Torrence has been great at the right guard position. He has been a key part of an offensive line that has done a good job protecting Josh Allen and helping the run game find success on the ground.
However, against the Jaguars he made two critical mistakes over a three play span as he would be called for holding on a five-yard completion on first down. The Bills would be able to pick those yards right back up on the next play with a 24-yard completion to Gabe Davis.
Then on first down on the next play, Josh Allen scrambled for nine yards but the play would be called back once again due to another holding penalty on Torrence. The Bills would be able to end the drive with a touchdown but the offense can't afford these types of penalties.
The hope this is nothing more than a few rookie mistakes, which O'Cyrus Torrence hasn't really had many this season, and Torrence can get back on track in Week 6 against the New York Giants.
