Complete Team Failure In Bills Loss To Steelers

After a season of good efforts, close calls and near misses, the Buffalo Bills put in a real stinker against the Pittsburgh Steelers.  The defense was fair, special teams was bad and the offense was just awful.

And with EJ Manuel back in the lineup after getting the OK to return from his knee injury, you have to wonder if he is still the Bills’ franchise quarterback. It was a day of bad decisions, bad throws and poor reads for Manuel, but he didn’t get any help from the coaches. Play calling by the Bills was pretty poor too.

The Bills abandoned their running game way too early, managing only 95 yards for the day. So that left it up to Manuel, and he was only 22 of 39 for 155 yards with an interception and a meaningless touchdown on the final play of the game.

After the Bills opened the scoring with a Dan Carpenter field goal, the Steelers scored 23 straight points, while nine Bills possessions ended with a punt, and another series ended with an interception. A two-yard Manuel to Chris Gragg touchdown pass ended the game for the Bills. Small consolation for a putrid effort.

The Bills drop to 3-7 and are looking at yet another year out of the playoffs. The Bills host the Jets next Sunday.
