2.) The Bills do not perform well away from home

For a team that can dominate in front of their home crowd, it is the opposite narrative when they hit the road. The Bills have just two road wins on the season (Week 3 vs. Washington Commanders and Week 14 vs. Kansas City Chiefs). They have two losses on the road within the division against the New York Jets and New England Patriots, as well losses to the Cincinnati Bengals and Philadelphia Eagles. 

Before Brady took over the offensive coordinator position, the Bills’ offense heavily struggled away from Orchard Park under Ken Dorsey. Since Brady has taken over, the Bills are 3-1 with a win in Arrowhead, but a loss against the Eagles. The game against the Eagles went into overtime after the Bills’ defense collapsed in the second half while the offense managed to put up 34 points. With the way things are looking for the Bills, this trend of not performing well away from home should take a break, however, it is easier said than done.
