The offense may have found themselves just in time

Josh Allen had maybe his worst game of his career against the New York Jets on the opening weekend of the season, but the team bounced back big time over the following three games. Scoring a total of 123 points and winning all three by 28+, tying an NFL record in the Super Bowl era. Things changed when the team traveled overseas to London and have struggled offensively ever since.

The offense got back to some semblance of normalcy last week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers; however, despite scoring 24 against a solid Bucs defense, there were moments where the offense struggled to finish drives. The Bills left a lot of points on the field that day, but they showed something that could be huge going forward.

The Bills offense suddenly found some new weapons they could utilize, as well as a possible change of offensive style. Khalil Shakir and Dalton Kincaid combined for 11 receptions, 157 yards, and a touchdown. If the Bills will continue to work these two into the game plan and utilize the no-huddle attack, this offense could begin to get on a roll again and carry the Bills to the playoffs.
