On this episode of Talking Buffalo, Patrick Moran records live to react in real time just minutes after the Buffalo Bills failed to put the Kansas City Chiefs away at home in the divisional round of the playoffs, falling 27-24 to see their Super Bowl dreams come to a crashing end.
The Bills, led by Josh Allen did a tremendous job of sustaining drives with both the run and the pass, putting up 24 points but on this night it was defense and special teams that ultimately let the team down. Patrick has thoughts on the disappearing act of Ed Oliver (as well as DaQuan Jones) for a second consecutive Bills elimination loss, the back seven of the defense being powerless (and also unhealthy) to stop Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs offense until late in the game, and special teams doing what they’ve done most the season—contributing negative plays to a Buffalo loss.
Patrick also goes against early opinions that Sean McDermott did a lousy job coaching the game. Instead he points the finger at the Bills being unable to hit on any of their potential explosive plays, including a huge drop late by Stefon Diggs in addition to Tyler Bass hopefully making his last kick as a Buffalo Bill. You simply can’t perform that badly in cold weather like he did for Buffalo down the stretch.
Patrick also has thoughts on Josh Allen and a (very) quick peak into what is shaping up to be a very difficult offseason for Brandon Beane. That and much more today. Ugh.
