The Buffalo Bills’ 2023 season has come to another mid-January end with their third consecutive divisional round loss. They were not able to get the job done against the Kansas City Chiefs, losing 27-24 after Tyler Bass missed a game-tying field goal with under two minutes left in the game.
Say what you want about the poor second half performance by the Bills’ offense, the Buffalo defense could not stop a nosebleed against the Chiefs. They only made the Chiefs punt once and forced a turnover after a heroic forced fumble by Jordan Poyer at the goal line.
The offense for the Bills started off on a hot streak in Weeks 2-4 where they were helping the Bills win by no less than 28 points in that three game stretch. Then they went into a funk in the middle of the season, being a very predictable unit under Ken Dorsey as the offensive playcaller. Once Sean McDermott decided to fire Dorsey and promote Joe Brady as the interim offensive coordinator, the offense was different for the better.
Overall, the Bills’ offense had its ups and downs, but when you have Josh Allen under center, it is tough for any defense to stop them if he is playing at his best.
