On this episode of Talking Buffalo, Patrick Moran has his weekly thoughts and observations on the Buffalo Bills after watching the coaches All-22 film and analyzing the PFF grades of an absolutely critical road victory over the Kansas City Chiefs that for all intents and purposes keeps their AFC playoff hopes alive going into the final four games of the season.
It wasn’t particularly pretty on either side of the ball as both the film and PFF grades demonstrate but the Bills found a way to earn a game they needed to have. Patrick talks about James Cook emerging as arguably the Bills best offensive weapon and needing to be on the field for more than roughly half the snaps going forward. Plus, Josh Allen played well considering he was often under siege behind an offensive line that didn’t block well, an unlikely pass catcher made one of the biggest plays of the game, and what’s going on with Pro Bowl receiver Stefon Diggs?
On the other side of the ball Patrick raves about the job Taron Johnson did and gives credit for some timely pass rushing, including Von Miller on the final drive. The defense took the ball away twice and held Kansas City to just three points on their last four possessions, but Patrick sees major tackling issues that will rear its ugly head against Dallas and other teams remaining on the schedule if they don’t fix it quickly.
That plus a look ahead to the Cowboys, wondering if the Tyler Dunne piece on Sean McDermott really did galvanize the locker room in rallying behind him and much more.
